NORFOLK, Virginia — The Old Dominion women’s soccer teams kick off a two-game week Thursday night when they visit James Madison for a Sun Belt Conference East Division matchup.

Old Dominion (3-4-1, 1-0-0) enters the competition after a 1-0 win in Louisiana on Friday night. Megan Watts scored the only goal from a penalty in the 10º minute as the Monarchs recorded their third clean sheet in their last four games.

Watts leads the team with two goals, while Yuliia Khrystiuk, Andrea Balcazar Algarin, Thalia MorisiAnna Tørsløv and Ece Turkoglu scored one for the monarchs.

James Madison (5-2-2, 1-0-0) comes into the match after a 1-0 win at Coastal Carolina on Friday night. Lidia Nduka scored her third goal of the year in the 55º minute to the eventual final margin. Amanda Attanasi leads the Dukes with four goals and three assists, while Nduka is next with three goals and two assists.

These longtime rivals are meeting for the first time since 2012, when JMU won the match in Norfolk and won the last four matches.

The ODU will end the week with a Sunday afternoon meeting with Georgia Southern at 3:30 pm. This will be the first meeting with the Eagles, who will come out of a game against Texas State on Thursday night.
