CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA -- The Virginia Cavaliers opened today's game with a 10-0 run as #16 Old Dominion fell 16-4 in women's lacrosse action this afternoon. The Lady Monarchs were led by sophomore Suzanne Wosczyna (Phoenixville, VA) with three unassisted goals.

Old Dominion got on the scoreboard just before halftime as Wosczyna drove the goalline and scored with 2:01 to play in the half, breaking up the Cavalier shutout. Virginia tacked on one goal just before the end of the half as Lauren Aumiller fed Courtney Young on the crease. Young quicksticked the ball into the cage with six seconds remaining in the half as UVa led 11-1.

Gina Sambus scored the opening goal in the second half for Virginia as she tried to dump the ball into the middle of the arc but instead the ball got behind the Monarch keeper and into the cage, putting Virginia up 12-1.

The Monarchs then went on a minirun as Woscyzna scored a pair of goals three minutes apart to cut the deficit to nine at 12-3 with 15:17 to play.

Old Dominion scored the final goal of the game as junior Danielle Hensil (Havertown, PA) capitalized on a Virginia offsides situation and took the ball the length of the field and scored with 1:43 to play.

With the win, the Cavaliers improve to 2-1 on the season while Old Dominion falls to 1-1. The Lady Monarchs return to action this weekend in their home opener at Foreman Field. ODU hosts Delaware in the first CAA match-up of the year at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday and will play UMBC on Sunday at noon.
