LYNCHBURG, VA – Sophomore forward Dessi Dupuy broke open a close game with four second-half goals to lead the ninth-ranked Lynchburg College women's soccer team to a 5-0 victory over Randolph-Macon College in an Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) matchup Wednesday afternoon.

The Hornets held advantages of 18-0 in shots and 6-0 in corner kicks but couldn't capitalize again in the first half.

Dupuy took a pass from Melchiori a minute later and dribbled around the keeper for her fourth tally on the day.
