Sophomore Kelsey Carter (Richmond, Va., Mills Godwin) netted the Eagles' third goal less than 15 minutes into play, and UMW upped the lead to 4-0 by halftime as Dubinsky scored on a Sam Lockley assist.
The second half saw Reynolds score twice in a 14-second span, just five seconds off the NCAA Division III record, at 51:57 and 52:11. Hood's Stephanie Weaver broke the shutout in the 70th minute, but sophomore Tina Rader (Springfield, Va., West Springfield) capped the scoring at 84:21.
