Alicia Sandoval passing in a lacrosse game

Winchester, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's women's lacrosse team rallied late but couldn't overcome a five-goal deficit in a 13-12 Old Dominion Athletic Conference loss to Shenandoah Saturday afternoon on the road.

Senior attackman Alicia Sandoval (Montclair, Va.) led Lynchburg with three goals and three assists, while junior attackman Kelsi Trevisan (West Chester, Pa.) chipped in a hat trick and an assist.

Senior defender Allie O'Leary (Salisbury, Md.) corralled eight draw controls to go with two ground balls and two caused turnovers.

Final: Shenandoah 13, Lynchburg 12

Records: Shenandoah (7-3, 2-0 ODAC), Lynchburg (3-5, 0-1 ODAC)

Venue: Sprint Field at Shentel Stadium, Shenandoah University, Winchester, Va.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Senior midfielder Kaliegh Ridgley (Reistertown, Md.) put Lynchburg up 1-0 early on Sandoval's assist, but Shenandoah rattled off a 5-0 run and led the rest of the way.

  • Lynchburg was able to cut the lead to 7-5 at halftime as Sandoval went into the break with two goals and two assists.
