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.

Records: Lynchburg (10-5, 5-0 ODAC), Ferrum (3-10, 0-5 ODAC)

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Ferrum's defense held fast early, but Lynchburg broke through in the 23rd minute when Chiappazzi found Lerro for the go-ahead goal.

  • The Hornets tacked on two more goals in the second half as Simpao assisted a 49th-minute score by freshman midfielder Kaylie Truitt (Lewes, Del.). Claybaugh put the cherry on top of the win in the 63rd minute thanks to Chiappazzi's assist.

  • Lynchburg's four goalkeepers combined for the team's fifth shutout of the season. Freshman Kiersten Kirtley (Fredericksburg, Va.) picked up her first-career save.
