BOSTON Jennifer Heister (Fayetteville, NY.) scored four goals and Suzanne Wosczyna (Phoenixville, Pa.) added two and assisted on five others to lead 15th ranked Old Dominion to a 13-9 victory over #20 Boston University Saturday.

Danielle Hensil(Havertown, Pa.) then scored an unassisted goal to give the Monarchs 4-3 advantage, a lead they would never relinquish. The Monarchs led, 5-4, at halftime.

ODU (10-4) seemingly put the game away by scoring four straight goals to open the second half, taking a 9-4 lead. B. U. countered with goals from Trudel and senior attacker Katie Nordhoff (Ellicott City, MD) to cut the Monarch's lead to 9-6 with 14:15 left.

Senior midfielder Kristin Abruzzese (Medford, NJ) added an unassisted goal at 3:52, before Trudel fed senior defender Gabby Juocys (Rochester, MI) for the third score at 3:04.
