Lynchburg, Va. -- The No. 8-seeded University of Lynchburg women's soccer team defeated No. 9-seeded Eastern Mennonite, 4-0, Monday afternoon to advance to the quarterfinal round of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference tournament.
The Hornets (11-7-1) got on the board in the seventh minute on a goal from sophomore Amanda Wigboldy after an EMU foul at the top of the box led to a free kick. Wigboldy's shot hit the crossbar and then crossed the line to put Lynchburg on top, 1-0. Wigboldy scored again on a penalty kick after Dana Seavey drew a foul in the box in the 24th minute; Lynchburg carried that 2-0 lead into the half.
In the 48th minute, freshman Megan Dee scored on a header off a corner kick from sophomore Taylor Smith to extend the Hornets' lead to 3-0. Less than two minutes later, Dee scored her second goal of the match on an assist from senior Madalyn Amos to cement the Lynchburg victory.
The Hornet offense out-shot the Royals (10-7-1) 18-4 on the afternoon, with nine of them on frame.
