Chaz Ashton Scores as LC Men's Soccer Defeats Bridgewater 1-0
BRIDGEWATER, VA – Senior forward Chaz Ashton scored the game's only goal Saturday afternoon to lead the Lynchburg College men's soccer team to an important 1-0 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) road victory at Bridgewater College.
The matchup was scoreless at halftime, but LC struck soon after intermission. Ashton took a feed from junior Luke Moore and deposited it into the back of the net at the 47:47 mark. The Hornet defense made the one-goal lead stand up, and senior net-minder Jonathan Sheffield made seven saves to preserve his third shutout of the season.
The Hornets have won their last three matches, all by shutout.
LC held advantages of 17-14 in shots and 8-4 in corner kicks. Eagle goalie Kevin Morris recorded eight stops as Bridgewater falls to 5-5-3 overall and 2-2-2 in conference play.
The Hornets (6-4-2/4-1-1 ODAC) travel to Virginia Wesleyan College for another ODAC match Wednesday at 7 p.m.
