Lynchburg, Va. -- Visiting Randolph-Macon scored once in each half as the Yellow Jackets captured a 2-0 Old Dominion Athletic Conference victory over University of Lynchburg's women's soccer team Wednesday evening on Shellenberger Field.

Casey Kent scored both goals, unassisted, for the Yellow Jackets, the second coming on a penalty kick.

Tenth-ranked Lynchburg held statistical advantages in shots, 16-13, and corner kicks, 5-3, but were unable to break through.

The loss snaps a 21-year winning streak in the series for the Hornets.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: Randolph-Macon 2, No. 10 Lynchburg 0

Venue: Shellenberger Field, University of Lynchburg, Lynchburg, Va.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • The Hornets controlled the first half decidedly, out-shooting R-MC, 12-4, in the first 45 minutes of play. Yellow Jackets goalkeeper Edye Carr made three of her four saves to keep Lynchburg off the board.

  • Kent broke the tie in the 43rd minute when she ripped a long shot toward goal that was mishandled, fell to the turf, and spun into the net.

  • The Yellow Jackets added insurance in the 82nd minute after an R-MC player was fouled in the box on a counter-attack. Kent knocked the penalty kick in.

  • Senior forward Hannah Olds (Wilmington, N.C.) led the Hornet attack with two shots-on-goal.

 

LOOKING AHEAD

Lynchburg's women will remain home this Saturday for an ODAC match with Emory & Henry. Action on Shellenberger Field begins at 1 p.m.
