WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Wake Forest women's soccer rebounded after conceding an early goal, tallying three unanswered scores to knock off Old Dominion, 3-0, at Spry Stadium on Friday night to remain unbeaten.

Six different Demon Deacons (7-0-0) tallied a point, including goals from Maddie Huster, Bayley Feist and Jenna Romano, as Wake Forest has now outscored opponents 18-2 so far in 2016.

The Monarchs (2-5) did snap Wake Forest's five-game shutout streak in the third minute, though, when Iris Achterhof received the ball at the edge of the box with her back to the goal, and made a quick turn for an upper-90 strike that bounced off the bottom of the crossbar and in.

Wake Forest responded almost instantly, when a Caroline Wootten cross found Maddie Huster sprinting towards net for the short-range finish less than two minutes later for the equalizer. After entering the season with one career goal in two years, Huster's score was already her fifth of 2016.

Feist scored what proved to be the game-winner in the closing minutes of the first half. Sarah Medina sent a long cross into the box from the right side, finding Feist for a header over the keeper's head from 10 yards out. The goal was Feist's fifth, and Wootten's team-leading third assist.

Romano notched her second goal in as many games in the 67th minute. Ally Haran found her open just past midfield, and Romano dribbled to 30 yards out before unleashing a strike which snuck just under the crossbar to make the score 3-1.

Lindsay Preston made a pair of saves to improve to 7-0 in goal.

• Instead of one big senior day this year, Wake Forest is honoring one senior at each of the final seven home games.
Taylor Kerxton made her first-career start for her senior night, but has been recovering from an injury and was substituted out after she put the ball in play to open the game.

13: Wake Forest out-shot the Monarchs by 13, 19-6. The Deacs have more than tripled opponents' shot totals this season, by a 127-39 margin to date.
14: A total of 14 different Deacons have already recorded points, already more than in 2014 (11) and 2015 (12).
18: With 18 goals this season, Wake Forest has already matched its 2014 season total and is one away from tying the 2015 total of 19 goals.

• Wake Forest is 7-0-0 heading into the final non-conference game Sunday. The last time Wake Forest started 7-0-0 was in 2009, while the program's best-ever start was 9-0-0 in 2002.
• The Demon Deacons are trying to finish undefeated in regular season non-conference action for the second time in program history, also accomplishing the feat in 2013.

• Wake Forest wraps up the regular season non-conference slate on Sunday at 1 p.m., playing host to Davidson. The Deacs will honor senior Jenna Romano before the contest.
