ECU jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, as Erin Cann and Shana Woodward scored in the 16th and 30th minutes respectively. Old Dominion narrowed the gap just before halftime as sophomore forward Melanie McGovern (Somerdale, NJ) launched her fourth goal of the season from the right side.
At the half, both teams had taken just three shots. In the second half, Old Dominion continued to rally, outshooting ECU 7-3, yet was unable to break through with another goal.
The Lady Monarchs return to action on Saturday, October 2, as they host CAA-rival James Madison at the Old Dominion Soccer Stadium at 7:30 pm.
