HOLLINS — The Shenandoah University women’s soccer team turned in a top five all-time performance Wednesday afternoon in an 11-0 Old Dominion Athletic Conference victory over Hollins.
The 11 goals scored is the fifth best game total in program history for Shenandoah (7-9-1, 7-4 ODAC) and the most scored since the Hornets joined the ODAC prior to the 2012 season.
Sophomore Averi Rosena scored just 2:11 into the contest to give SU all of the offense it would need versus Hollins (0-14, 0-10).
The Hornets added first half goals in the third, 23rd, 31st, 33rd and 45th minutes to take a 6-0 lead into the halftime locker room.
Freshman Rebecca Angerome, who made one save in 22:18 of action in the goal, had a natural hat trick in a span of 7:53 midway through the second half.
Angerome was one of 11 women who registered at least one point in the victory.
SU outshot its hosts 59-2 and took all five corner kicks.
Sophomore Erin Septer, who played the initial 30:17 in the goal, matched Angerome with one save.
Nicole Pratt played the middle 37:25 and did not have to make a save.
Coach Liz Pike’s team completes its regular season on Friday with a 5 p.m. home contest against Roanoke. A win will clinch fifth place in the regular season race for SU.
HARRISONBURG — Host Eastern Mennonite scored single goals in each half on its way to a 2-0 ODAC men’s soccer victory over Shenandoah on Wednesday evening.
The Royals (7-8-2, 4-5 ODAC) scored in the second minute to take a lead they would not relinquish over SU (4-11-1, 1-7-1).
Jake Lind, who scored that initial goal just 94 second in, added an insurance tally in the 54th minute to provide the final margin of victory.
The Hornets battled for the entire 90 minutes, and outshot EMU 12-7 in the second half, but could not find the back of the net.
The two teams split 36 shots with Eastern Mennonite holding a 6-1 advantage in corner kicks.
Shenandoah goalkeeper Matthew Poell made three saves.
SU returns home on Saturday night for a 7:30 p.m. homecoming contest against Hampden-Sydney.
