The Roanoke College men’s soccer team fell to the University of Lynchburg, the 16th nationally ranked team in Division III, on Saturday evening. The Hornets took a 2-0 win on Shellenberger Field in Lynchburg.
Lynchburg scored early in the first half on a goal by Brennan Lagana at 10:30, putting the Hornets up 1-0. The goal proved to be the game-winner but the Hornets added a second goal before halftime at 39:25 to take a 2-0 lead into the intermission. Neither team was able to find the back of the goal in the second half despite 10 shots being taken. Zach Behe made five saves, playing all 90 minutes in goal for the Maroons.
With the loss the Maroons dropped to 6-5-2 on the season and 4-3-1 in ODAC games. They were scheduled to play Averett University at Kerr Stadium in Salem on Wednesday, and on Saturday they’re at Emory. The ODAC tournament is scheduled to begin on October 29.
