Lynchburg, Va. -- The fifth-ranked University of Lynchburg men's soccer team played Old Dominion Athletic Conference rival Washington and Lee to a 1-1 draw Saturday night at home.

The clash was a reprise of the past two ODAC championship matches, both of which Lynchburg has won.

Late in the Hornets looked like they were going to take the 2018 regular-season installment as well, when freshman forward Joey Daly (Raleigh, N.C.) gave Lynchburg the lead in the 85th minute. But W&L responded with the equalizer in the 88th, and the teams battled through overtime to the draw.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: No. 5 Lynchburg 1, Washington and Lee 1 (OT)

Records: No. 5 Lynchburg (8-0-2, 4-0-1 ODAC), Washington and Lee (5-3-1, 3-0-1 ODAC)

Venue: Shellenberger Field, University of Lynchburg, Lynchburg, Va.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Both teams thwarted scoring opportunities in the first half as Lynchburg held a 5-4 advantage on shots at intermission. Senior goalkeeper Dylan McLaurin (Stafford, Va.) made two of his four saves in the first half.

  • Lynchburg took control after the break, possessing the ball much of the second half. The Hornets finally broke through in the 85th when junior forward Hussein Osman (Charlottesville, Va.) took a shot that W&L keeper Michael Nyc saved, but the rebound went to Daly, who finished from close range.

  • The lead didn't last long, as the Generals' Kevin Lencioni found Jack Rawlins far post on a corner kick to knot the score at the 87:50 mark.

  • Lynchburg out-shot the Generals, 6-2, in the final 22:10 and took four corner kicks to W&L's none, but the Hornets couldn't find the golden goal.

 

LOOKING AHEAD

The Hornets will clash with crosstown rival Randolph College to open next week. The whistle blows at WildCat Stadium at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 10.
