Dupuy Nets Game Winner as Hornets Defeat Averett 2-1
LYNCHBURG, VA – Junior Dessi Dupuy scored the game-winning goal with less than a minute left as the #8 Lynchburg College women's soccer team downed Averett University 2-1 Sunday night.
Lynchburg kept the pressure on the Cougars throughout the first half, taking 12 shots, seven of which were saved by keeper Malin Borjesson.
The closest opportunity in the first half came when Angela Bosco had a kick that was deflected by Borjesson in the 12th minute. Dessi Dupuy followed up the attempt with a strike of her own but could not get it past Borjesson.
Lynchburg finally got to the Averett keeper with less than 25 minutes left in the contest.

Angela Bosco was in the perfect opportunity to head the ball in for the first score of the game.
The goal at 66:42 gives Bosco a goal in every game played by the Hornets this season.
