Lombardo continued to write his into the Lynchburg men's lacrosse history books, moving into second place on the Hornets' career goals list with 175, passing 2009 grad Tyler Tolson's mark of 173.

Junior attackman Trammel Robinson (Memphis, Tenn.) scored two goals and dished out two assists.

Senior attackman Logan Adams (Grosse Pointe, Mich.) added four assists, and junior midfielder Kevin Rogers (Leesburg, Va.) contributed a goal and three assists to the Hornets' cause.

Lynchburg's face-off corps won 15 of the 26 scrums at midfield.
