NORFOLK, Va. – A key save in the final seconds by goalkeeper Lauren Ey helped the Monarchs (4-8, 2-1 ASUN) hold off Stetson (2-10, 0-2 ASUN) by a 12-11 score on Sunday afternoon. Four goals by Cydney Tutchton led the offensive unit.

Old Dominion started scoring in the first minute of play by Sophia Richie. Stetson answered the ODU goal. ODU went back to back with a goal by Glory Johnson and Natalie Ledwitz.
