The Seahawks (2-8; 0-2 CAA) are back home following a tough 3-2 setback at Old Dominion that saw the Seahawks twice take a one-goal lead, only to have the Lady Monarchs quickly counter to tie the game before an ODU tally in the 72nd minute proved to be the game winner.
Senior Kelly Dodd and junior Kim Currie both scored in the contest while junior Amanda Holmes notched her second assist of the season on Dodd's tally. Currie's strike and Holmes' assist moved the duo into a tie with junior Stephanie Rose for first place on the program's scoring chart with four points apiece this season. Junior keeper Caitlin Hunter made four saves as she remained among the league leaders in both total saves (53) and save percentage (.803).
The Tribe (8-2; 2-0 CAA) make their way to the Port City with a five-game unbeaten streak in tow after dispatching Georgia State in a 3-0 victory at home on Thursday. Junior Mallory Schaefer and freshman Emily Camper pace a potent W&M attack that has averaged 2.8 goals per game this season as they rank second and third in the league in scoring with 20 (9 G, 2 A) and 17 points (6 G, 5 A), respectively. In goal, junior Katherine Yount boasts a league-low 0.70 goals against average as she also leads the CAA in save percentage (.818) and shutouts (6).
