Virginia Beach, Va. -- Lynchburg College's women's soccer team exploded for two goals in a five-minute span midway through Saturday's Old Dominion Athletic Conference semifinal match, and it was enough for the second-seeded Hornets to oust No. 3-seed Roanoke from the tournament by means of a 2-1 victory at Virginia Wesleyan University.
Final: No. 2 Lynchburg 2, No. 3 Roanoke 1
Records: Lynchburg 16-3, Roanoke 11-6-2
Venue: Trinder Center, Virginia Wesleyan University, Virginia Beach, Va.
HOW IT HAPPENED
- After a scoreless first half in which LC out-shot the Maroons, 7-0, Jakubek broke through the Roanoke defense, one-touching a Rachel Cooke (Charlottesville, Va.) pass into the net in the 56th minute.
- The Hornets didn't wait long to add insurance. After a 60th-minute free kick, Emily Maxwell (Quantico, Va.) found Duggan in the box, and the sophomore finished for a 2-0 Lynchburg lead.
- Roanoke cut the deficit to one in the 87th minute when Tori Young netted a goal, but Lynchburg held on for the win.
Lynchburg will return to the ODAC final after a one-year hiatus from the league's championship match. The Hornets will face No. 4 seed Bridgewater, which upset Virginia Wesleyan in the first semifinal match Saturday. Bridgewater took the regular-season meeting between the two teams, 1-0, at Lynchburg's Shellenberger Field on Oct. 25.
