Junior goalkeeper Hannah Suder completed a total of six saves during the 90-minute duration of the game, earning her second-best save contest of the season.
MTSU struggled to gain enough access to score, however senior forward Peyton DePriest was able to collect 2 shots on goal and 4 total shots before the end of the night.
At minute 40 of the game, Old Dominion secured their second goal of the night with an unassisted shot made by Carla Morich.
Regarding next week's away game against Florida Atlantic, head coach Aston Rhoden said, “We have to find a way to bounce back. We’ve got to do a better job this week of one: managing our players who played a lot of minutes and then two: being able to get back on the field where we can be of more dominant presence of the ball.”
