Ashland, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's men's soccer team remained unbeaten in 2018 Wednesday afternoon by way of a 2-0 Old Dominion Athletic Conference victory at Randolph-Macon.

Freshman forward Joey Daly (Raleigh, N.C.) and junior forward Nick Morgan (Mechanicsville, Va.) scored the goals for Lynchburg, while senior goalkeeper Dylan McLaurin (Stafford, Va.) made four saves.

The win was the Hornets' fifth-straight over Randolph-Macon, dating back to 2015.
