LEXINGTON, Va. -- Virginia Wesleyan senior midfielder Anne Marie Nash (Norfolk, Va./Norfolk Academy) tallied six goals and six assists to lead the second-seeded Marlins to a 22-14 win over third-seeded Roanoke in the semifinals of the ODAC Women's Lacrosse Tournament on Saturday afternoon on the campus of Washington and Lee University.

The Marlins (15-2) led just 6-5 with 5:30 remaining in the first half, but went on a 6-0 run over the next 9:38 to assume a commanding 12-5 lead with 25:52 remaining. The Maroons (9-6) then fought back to cut the VWC lead to 12-9 with four unaswered goals over the game's next 5:23, but the Marlins quickly scored four straight over the next four minutes to put the game out of reach.

Nash's effort was supplimented by sophomore attacker Laura Wallace (Bridgewater, N.J./Bridgewater-Raritan), who scored six goals, and by junior attacker Megan Parris (Sewickley, Pa./Quaker Valley), who tallied one goal and five assists. Senior Margie Baker (Chesapeake, Va./Hickory) notched seven saves in goal.

Roanoke was led by junior attacker Meaghan Cromwell (Alexandria, Va./Mount Vernon) and freshman attacker Mary Stewart Malone (Fairfax Station, Va./St. Stephen's & St. Agnes), who totaled two goals and one assist each. Sophomore Danielle Serratore (Conshohocken, Pa./Plymouth-Whitemarsh) notched 16 saves in goal.
