Women's Lacrosse Defeats Ohio State

Hokies' set new school record with fifth straight win.

April, 11 1998

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Sophomore Maeghan O'Doherty led all scorers with four goals as the Virginia Tech women's lacrosse team downed Ohio State, 10-8, at Tech Park Saturday afternoon.

The win was the Hokies' fifth straight, setting a new Tech record for consecutive wins. The Hokies also tied the Tech mark for most wins in a season by improving to 7-4 on the year. The 1996 team finished the year at 7-6. The loss dropped OSU to 5-6 on the season.

O'Doherty, for the second-straight match, led the Hokies in scoring. The Annapolis, Md., native scored two in the first half as each team exchanged goals throughout the period. The Buckeyes received two goals from freshman Celeste Cianfrani, who finished with a team-high three, in the first stanza to lead, 6-5 at the intermission.

The Hokies, however, used a 6-3 run to put the Buckeyes away in the second half. The run was highlighted by two more goals from O'Doherty and impressive goalkeeping from junior Melissa Wagner (Pasadena, Md.). Wagner finished the match with 11 saves.

The Hokies also got two goals each from junior attack Suzy Funston (Moorestown, N.J.) and freshman midfielder Karen Diacont (Gambrills, Md.).

Tech, having now won seven of its last eight contests, puts its win streak on the line Tuesday, April 14, when the Hokies face American University. First draw at Tech Park is scheduled for 3 p.m.

Goals: VT (10) - O'Doherty 4, Funston 2, Diacont 2, Mantooth, Will; OSU (8) - Cianfrani 3, James 2, Simpson, Grim, Rybak. 
Assists: VT (2) - Miller, Will; OSU (2) - Simpson, Rybak.
