Freshman Emily Yergin gave the Hornets (7-2, 1-0 ODAC) the lone goal of the game. In the 58th minute, Yergin corralled a long pass from senior Alysha McCleaf and found herself with a step on the Generals (4-3, 0-1) defense.
Yergin dribbed into the box before ripping her shot past W&L keeper Maggie Nolan for what proved to be the game-winner.
Yergin's goal was her ninth of the season. She currently leads the ODAC in goals scored.
Hornets goalkeeper Erin Septer had five saves with her defense stopping an additional shot.
The shutout is Shenandoah's (and Septer's) seventh of the season.
Washington and Lee outshot SU 9-7 with the two teams splitting eight corner kicks.
