Lynchburg, Va. -- Behind a pair of four goal performances from junior attackman Evan Lombardo (Franklin Park, N.J.) and sophomore attackman Trammel Robinson (Memphis, Tenn.), the Lynchburg College men's lacrosse team cruised past Randolph-Macon, 14-6, Saturday in Old Dominion Athletic Conference play.

Senior attackman Colin McGuire (Odenton, Md.) added two goals and two assists, while junior face-off man Craig Koester (Wildwood, Mo.) won 15 of the 16 one-on-ones he took.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: Lynchburg 14, Randolph-Macon 6

Records: Lynchburg (4-5, 2-0 ODAC), Randolph-Macon (3-6, 0-3 ODAC)

Venue: Shellenberger Field, Lynchburg College, Lynchburg, Va.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • After Yellow Jackets tore out to an early 2-1 lead, Lynchburg goals by senior midfielder Ryan Kardux (Wayne, N.J.) and McGuire in the final 3 minutes of the first period gave LC a lead it wouldn't relinquish.

  • Lombardo polished off a hat trick in the second quarter, bookending a 7-0 period with goals as the Hornets battled to a 10-2 halftime advantage.

  • After scoring once in the second, Robinson took over in the third. The sophomore scored twice in the first 3 minutes of the second half and added another score midway through as Lynchburg ended all doubt.

 

LOOKING AHEAD

Lynchburg will hit the road next Saturday, March 31, bound for Salem, Va., to take on No. 10-ranked Roanoke in a battle of ODAC powers.
