Men's soccer slugs Oberlin as four players score

Ben Mackey and Abibi Osman celebrate a Hornets goal.

Salem, Va. -- The offense for University of Lynchburg's 21st-ranked men's soccer squad came out in a big way Saturday, beating up on Oberlin, 4-0, in the Hornets' final contest at the All Sports Cafe Roanoke Invitational in Salem, Va.

Lynchburg got goals from four different sources -- junior midfielder Jack Ashby (Lewes, Del.), sophomore midfielder Ben Mackey (Leesburg, Va.), senior defender Clay Van Gieson (Gloucester, Va.), and sophomore forward Cody Civilla (Gloucester, Va.) -- as well as two assists from sophomore forward Abibi Osman (Charlottesville, Va.) in the rout.

Senior goalkeeper Dylan McLaurin (Stafford, Va.) made two saves in his second-consecutive shutout.

Lynchburg out-shot the Yeomen by a 23-7 count.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: No. 21 Lynchburg 4, Oberlin 0

Records: No. 21 Lynchburg 2-0, Oberlin 0-2

Venue: Kerr Stadium, Roanoke College, Salem, Va.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • The Hornets scored early for the second-straight day, this time off Ashby's foot. Junior forward Hussein Osman (Charlottesville, Va.) found Ashby just outside of the box, and the midfielder finished the job.

  • Lynchburg waited until after halftime for the next strike, but it turned out to be a barrage. Abibi Osman found Mackey for the first of his two assists at the 59:13 mark; it was Mackey's first-career goal. Just 24 seconds later, Abibi Osman fired a cross into the box that Van Gieson finished.

  • Civilla put the final nail in the coffin in the 86th minute, tapping in a cross from junior forward Sherman Mitchell (Southbury, Conn.). It was Civilla's first-career score.

 

LOOKING AHEAD

Lynchburg will make its 2018 home debut next weekend as part of the Shellenberger Classic. The home-opener is set for Friday, Sept. 7 at 7:30 p.m. against Dickinson. The Hornets will close out the four-game tournament vs. Christopher Newport Saturday, Sept. 8 at 7:30 p.m.
