LEXINGTON, Va. – Senior attacker Kelly Jaeger (Baltimore, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) and sophomore attacker Traci Phipps (Annapolis, Md./Annapolis) each scored five goals to help lead third-seeded Randolph-Macon to an 18-10 victory over second-seeded Virginia Wesleyan in the semifinals of the 2005 ODAC Women's Lacrosse Tournament on Saturday afternoon at Watt Field.

The Yellow Jackets (10-5) jumped out to a 3-0 lead just 5:51 into the game on the strength of a goal and an assist by freshman attacker Halley Boring (Laurel, Md./Atholton). The Marlins (12-5) cut the score to 3-1 at the 23:36 mark on an unassisted goal by senior attacker Megan Parris (Sewickley, Pa./Quaker Valley), but R-MC would go on an 8-1 run over the remainder of the half to take an 11-2 advantage into halftime.

After the Yellow Jackets went up 13-2 with 26:40 left in the second half, Virginia Wesleyan tallied seven of the next nine goals to cut the deficit to six at 15-9 with 10:24 remaining. Junior midfielder Laura Wallace (Bridgewater, N.J./Bridgewater-Raritan) scored three goals and freshman midfielder Jillian Boyd (Warrenton, Va./Fauquier) tallied two goals over that stretch. However, the Marlins would get no closer as R-MC closed the game on a 3-1 run.

Boring finished with three goals and an assist for R-MC, while sophomore attacker Lauren Shivone (Wilmington, Del./Brandywine) tallied two goals and two assists. Freshman goalkeeper Lindsay Schabert (Fredericksburg, Va./Stafford) made 12 saves.

The Marlins were led by Wallace, who scored four goals. Boyd and sophomore midfielder Jamie Jones (Glen Burnie, Md./Glen Burnie) each notched two goals. Sophomore Jacqui Downey (Hinsdale, Ill./Hinsdale) stopped six shots in net.
