WINCHESTER, Va. – Shenandoah University battled through the bitter cold and a determined opponent Wednesday afternoon in an 18-11 non-league women's lacrosse victory over Widener University.

After Widener (1-2) scored the game's initial goal, Shenandoah (3-2) answered with six straight to take a lead it would not relinquish.
