No. 8 Virginia Downs Old Dominion, 14-9
The Lady Monarchs took an early 2-0 lead in the game courtesy of senior Dana Wisniewski (Collegeville, PA) and Jen Heister (Fayetteville, NY), who picked up their first goals of the season. The Cavaliers came right back however, taking a 4-2 lead into halftime.
Virginia came out strong in the second half, stretching the lead to 7-2 before the Lady Monarchs could respond. Heister netted two more goals and sophomore Suzanne Wosczyna (Phoenixville, PA) went on a scoring binge, racking up five goals on six shots. The Cavalier lead was insurmountable by that point, however, and Virgina held on for the victory.
Virginia was led by Lacey Aumiller, who finished the game with five goals. Jamie Haas scored three and assisted on another.
Old Dominion was led by Wosczyna's five scores and Heister's three goal performance. Senior goalie Laurie Koller (Collegeville, PA) finished with seven saves on the evening.
The Lady Monarchs will return to action this Saturday, when they travel to Delaware for a 3 p.m. match up.
