NORFOLK, Va., Sept. 20, 2012 -- James Madison women's soccer coach Dave Lombardo got an early birthday gift when the Dukes handled Old Dominion 5-0 in a Colonial Athletic Association match Thursday afternoon.

Lombardo, who celebrates his birthday tomorrow, saw his Dukes (3-6-0, 1-0-0) score the program's most goals in a road game since 2006.  ODU (2-6-0, 0-1-0) dropped its second straight game by shutout.

Sophomore Katie Hyland (Islip, N.Y./Islip) played a role in JMU's early scoring, netting the Dukes' first goal and assisting on the second in a span of just 20 seconds. 

Senior Katie Menzie (Chantilly, Va./Chantilly) sent a pass ahead to Hyland, who dribbled around ODU goalkeeper Brianna Alvarado and scored on an open net 36:48 into the game.

A long pass from Hyland found junior Lauren Wilson (Coatesville, Pa./Downingtown), who sent a shot into the right side of the goal at 37:08.
