Host Shenandoah University set new program records for goals and points in a game in the process of the 13-0 non-league field hockey victory over Notre Dame (Md.) on Wednesday.

The second half brought more of the same, with goals in the 43rd, 45th, 49th, 53rd and 61st minutes to set a new record for goals in the game.
