Greensboro, N.C. -- Brennan Lagana's 58th-minute goal knotted up the score and eventually secured a 1-1 draw for University of Lynchburg's men's soccer team Thursday evening at Greensboro College.
Things started off poorly for the Hornets as, in the second minute, a defensive communication wound up in an own goal and an early 1-0 deficit.
Lynchburg dominated the remainder of the first half, out-shooting the Pride by a 6-0 margin and earning four corner kicks, but the Hornets couldn't break through.
The Hornets kept the pressure on after halftime, culminating with Lagana's score in the 58th. Pressuring from the right side, Lagana got the ball in the midfield and dribbled into the box, where eventually he was tackled. Lagana stole the carom from the defender, however, and scored with a low laser of a shot.
Lynchburg managed five other shots in the second half but couldn't find the net again, settling for the draw.
Aside from the own goal, the Hornet defense had Greensboro locked down; Lynchburg didn't allow a shot in the match.
The Hornets (1-0-2) will return home Sunday to take on North Carolina Wesleyan at 3 p.m. on Shellenberger Field.
