WINCHESTER -- The Shenandoah University field hockey team opened up its Old Dominion Athletic Conference slate Friday afternoon with a 5-0 loss to seven-time defending champion Lynchburg.

The Lynchburg Hornets (6-2, 2-0 ODAC) scored two goals in the first half before pulling away with a three-goal second against SU (4-6, 0-1).

Kelli Williams scored what proved to be the game-winner by finishing of a Nicole Marburger feed in the 25th minute.

Lynchburg outshot SU 28-12 and an 18-11 advantage in penalty corners.
