Hollins Holds Off Sweet Briar

Roanoke, Va. --- Hollins Univeristy held off Sweet Briar College in Old Dominion Athetlic Conference women's soccer action on Saturday afternoon.  The hosts netted a goal in the first half and added an insurance tally in the final frame to take the win from SBC.

Kevin Fabulich, SBC Head Soccer Coach, noted that "while I am disappointed with the final result, I am happy about the chances we created.  Our young team continues to develop down the stretch."

Marissa McCord (Asheville, N.C./T.C. Roberson) placed a shot on goal for the Vixens, but the shot was saved by Hollins keeper Brandi  Chesne (Hammond, La./Northlake Christian) .  In net for SBC, Katherine Tillson Mechanicsville, Va./Atlee) turned away 14 of 16 shots faced.
