No. 13 W&L gets past men's lacrosse on Senior Day

Evan Lombardo tries to get around a defender in a lacrosse game.

Lynchburg, Va. -- The Lynchburg College men's lacrosse team couldn't close a late deficit, falling, 15-13, to 13th-ranked Washington and Lee Saturday afternoon on LC's Shellenberger Field.

Junior attackman Evan Lombardo (Franklin Park, N.J.) netted six goals and an assist for Lynchburg, while senior midfielder Colin McGuire (Odenton, Md.) complemented his goal with three assists.

A.J. Witherell led the Generals with four goals and an assist.

The Hornets celebrated Senior Day with their 13 seniors prior to the game.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: No. 13 Washington and Lee 15, Lynchburg 13

Records: No. 13 Washington and Lee (12-3, 7-0 ODAC), Lynchburg (8-7, 5-2 ODAC)

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

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • After falling behind 2-1 in the early going, Lynchburg took the lead with three straight goals from three different Hornets. W&L broke up the run with a score, but LC netted two more before the end of the frame -- the last from Lombardo to complete his first-period hat trick -- and the Hornets led 6-3 after 15 minutes of play.

  • The Generals outscored LC 4-1 in the second period to enter halftime tied, 7-7.

  • Lynchburg survived a man-down situation to start the second-half, but W&L scored a pair of unanswered goals in the early going to take a 9-7 lead. LC responded with two more scores to knot the game again, and McGuire and sophomore attackman Kevin Rogers (Leesburg, Va.) scored a pair more to end the period ahead, 11-10.

  • W&L opened the fourth with a 4-0 run to take control of the game, and late goals by Lombardo and junior attackman Logan Adams (Grosse Pointe, Mich.) weren't enough to bring LC back.

 

LOOKING AHEAD

Lynchburg will remain home on Wednesday, April 25 to take on the Hornets of Shenandoah. The face-off is set for 7 p.m.
