Ferrum, Va. -- Four University of Lynchburg field hockey players notched multi-point games as the Hornets cruised past Ferrum, 6-0, for an Old Dominion Athletic Conference win Wednesday night on the road.

Sophomore forward Jackie Lerro (Royersford, Pa.) and freshman forward Brittany Claybaugh (Chesapeake, Va.) each scored two goals. It was Claybaugh's first-career multi-goal game.

Senior forward Nikki Simpao (Stafford, Va.) notched a goal and an assist, and sophomore forward Maggie Chiappazzi (Poquoson, Va.) tallied two assists.

Lynchburg out-shot its opponent, 37-3, and the Hornets have now outscored their ODAC opponents, 26-4, in their five conference games.
