Lynchburg, Va. -- Senior defender Austin Kues (High Point, N.C.) scored his first two goals of the season, and the fifth-ranked University of Lynchburg's men's soccer team routed its crosstown rival, Randolph, 4-1, to remain unbeaten in Old Dominion Athletic Conference play Wednesday night.

Kues scored Lynchburg's first and last goals, bookending a dominant performance that saw the Hornets out-shoot their rivals, 14-7, and take five corner kicks to the WildCats' none.

Senior midfielder Dan Friedberg (Blacksburg, Va.) notched a goal and an assist, and freshman forward Bryce Harrison (Chesapeake, Va.) scored his first-career goal as well.

It was Lynchburg's third-straight win over its crosstown foe, and the Hornets extended their unbeaten streak against Randolph to nine, dating back to the 2011 ODAC championship match.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: No. 5 Lynchburg 4, Randolph 1

Records: No. 5 Lynchburg (9-0-2, 5-0-1 ODAC), Randolph (4-5-3, 3-3-1 ODAC)

Venue: WildCat Stadium, Randolph College, Lynchburg, Va.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Lynchburg wasted no time asserting itself, as Kues scored his first goal in the second minute, assisted by senior defender Clay Van Gieson (Gloucester, Va.).

  • The Hornets tacked on in the 22nd minute, when Friedberg found nylon on an assist by freshman forward Joey Daly (Raleigh, N.C.).

  • Harrison's goal, which also marked the first-career assist for freshman midfielder Michael Rendon (Chesterfield, Va.), made it 3-0 Lynchburg in the 37th, but Randolph answered before halftime thanks to a Gabe Krueger goal.

  • Kues added the dagger in the 64th minute, when Friedberg's long throw-in found the senior for the goal.

 

LOOKING AHEAD

The Hornets will hit the road again Saturday, Oct. 13, this time heading to Harrisonburg, Va. for an ODAC match with Eastern Mennonite. The match begins at 7 p.m.
