Virginia Wesleyan (4-2, 1-0 ODAC) held SU (5-2, 0-1) off the board for the first 19:13 of the contest as it raced out to the 6-0 lead.
Freshman Matt Justice finally snapped the scoreless string with his unassisted goal at 10:47 of the second, followed by a Bryan Pope goal 1:41 later, but this would be as close as the Hornets would get.
VWC held a 48-39 advantage in shots, scooped up 59 of 93 groundballs and won 17 of 24 draws at the faceoff 'x'.
Tyler Quinn made 15 saves in the losing effort.
Shenandoah is off until traveling next Saturday night for an ODAC contest at Randolph.
