ODU upsets No. 6 squad, snaps streak

The No. 9 Virginia women’s lacrosse team dropped its second straight game last night to unranked Old Dominion 13-10. The home win for the Monarchs (6-2) was their first victory against Virginia (7-5, 1-3 ACC) in 33 games, breaking a losing streak that dated back to 1980. The Cavaliers got off to a quick start — going up 3-0 to start the game — but the Virginia defense could not hold back the Monarch attack as freshman midfielder Lisa Bernardini and junior attack Ashley Kellogg each tallied four goals apiece for the host team.

The Cavaliers fought back — senior midfielder Blair Weymouth notched her 30th career hat trick, and senior attack Jenny Hauser added two goals and two assists — but Old Dominion kept pace and ultimately sealed the win.

Virginia will continue its current four-game road trip this weekend, travelling to face Boston College and Harvard.
