Shenandoah Routs Sweet Briar, Sets Wins Record

WINCHESTER, Va. - Shenandoah University set a new program record for wins in a season with an 18-2 non-league victory over Sweet Briar Wednesday afternoon.

The Hornets (12-3) break the record of 11 wins set by the 2005 USA South Conference championship squad. That team finished the year with an 11-5 mark.

Wednesday's contest against Sweet Briar (3-5-1) was never close, as SU jumped on the Vixens for 11 of the first 12 goals of the contest and had a 7-1 lead by the time the game was 12 minutes old. Sophomore Sydney Anderson, with an unassisted goal, had the eventual game-winner at 22:35.

Nine different women scored the 18 goals, with freshman Samantha Donaghy netting a game-high four and six others: Corrinne Kosmowski, Sara Mucciaro, Ashley Heroth, Samantha Sisson, Amy Rollins and Keri Reid, scoring two each. Sisson and Jennie Ott both dished out two assists.

Shenandoah outshot its visitors 42-6, won 20 of 22 draw controls and had a 31-17 advantage in groundballs.

SU completes regular season play on Saturday with a 1:00 USA South matchup at Christopher Newport. A win over the Captains will secure a share of the USA South Conference regular season title.
