Sewanee, Tenn. -- University of Lynchburg's women's soccer team exploded for a season-high four goals Sunday afternoon as the Hornets walloped Sewanee in their final match of the Tigers' home tournament.

Senior midfielder Kennedy Jakubek (Leesburg, Va.) scored in each half for the 13th-ranked Hornets, and senior forward Caitlin Mertens (Succasunna, N.J.) tallied a goal and an assist for Lynchburg. Senior forward Alyssa Kopsidas (Rockville, Md.) scored her first goal of the season as well.

For its part, the Hornet defense posted its fourth shutout of 2018 and held the Tigers without a shot-on-goal.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: No. 13 Lynchburg 4, Sewanee 0

Records: No. 13 Lynchburg 5-1, Sewanee 0-5-2

Venue: Puett Field, The University of the South, Sewanee, Tenn.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Lynchburg controlled the match from the outset and broke through in the 39th minute thanks to Jakubek, who netted her second goal of the season on an assist from Mertens.

  • Three minutes later, Kopsidas scored unassisted after a Hornets free kick to make it 2-0.

  • In the 56th minute, Mertens and Jakubek flipped the script for the Hornets' third goal, as Mertens' shot deflected off the keeper's hands and into the net for her team-leading fifth goal of the year.

  • Jakubek added her second score of the match in the 60th minute.

 

LOOKING AHEAD

Lynchburg continues its non-conference portion of the schedule in a Wednesday, Sept. 19 return to Shellenberger Field, where they'll take on St. Mary's at 5 p.m.
