SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Randolph-Macon's senior goalkeeper Kelsey Stanley (Bumpass, Va. / Louisa County) wrote her way into Old Dominion Athletic Conference history books, but R-MC was blanked by Susquehanna 3-0 in a Monday night non-conference match.

SU opened the game with a shot 1:35 into the match on a scrum in front of the goal. No other goals would be given up by either side in the first half and Susquehanna took the 1-0 lead into the break. R-MC tried seven shots with four of them falling on goal in the half. Sophomore goalie Katie Thompson (Burke, Va. / Lake Braddock) saved four SU shots in the frame.

In the second half, SU found a goal in the 57th minute off a rebounded shot. The River Hawks finished the match with a score seconds before the final horn on a pass from the top of the circle that made it into the cage.

R-MC finished with 12 total shots and nine of them on goal. Senior Victoria Cappadora (Manchester, Md. / Manchester Valley) took three shots, all of them on goal while Freshman Maria Teresa Ambrogi-Torres (Richmond, Va. / Trinity Episcopal School) took three with two coming on goal. Freshman Erin Barringer (Catonsville, Md. / Indian Creek Upper School) tried two shots, both on goal, while her classmates Austyn Faries (Richmond, Va. / Monacan), Megan May (Hayes, Va. / Gloucester), Claire Magill (Moseley, Va. / Trinity Episcopal School) and Kaykene Thomas (Suffolk, Va. / Lakeland) each tried one shot.

Senior goalkeeper Kelsey Stanley (Bumpass, Va. / Louisa County) saved two shots in the second frame, her only half of action. With those two saves, Stanley outright overtakes the tenth spot in ODAC history for most saves in a career with 519. Madeline Wilson of Sweet Briar holds the ninth spot with 537 saves. Stanley is also fourth in R-MC history. Cathy Conway is third with 642 saves. 

R-MC is now 5-9 overall. The team continues its road trip at Virginia Wesleyan at 5:00 PM on Wednesday.
