Hornet women succumb to Colby-Sawyer pressure

Lyndonville, VT - The Lyndon State College women's soccer team dropped a 3-0 decision to North Atlantic Conference leading Colby-Sawyer College on Saturday afternoon.  The Hornets fell to 0-9-1 on the season and 0-5-1 in conference, while the Chargers improve to 8-2 overall and remain unbeaten in the NAC at 5-0.

The Chargers got on the board in the 12th minute.  Lyndon goalkeeper Johanna Sargent (Randolph, VT) denied Colby-Sawyer's Hannah Fields (Shapleigh, ME), but Corrie Hoyt (Lebanon, CT) was right there to knock the rebound off the right post and into the net.  It was Hoyt's second goal of the season.

Fields made it 2-0 Chargers in the 25th minute when she found the net for the eighth time this season, off of an assist from Maddie Chamard (Portsmouth, RI).  Colby-Sawyer took that advantage into halftime, as they also outshot Lyndon 20-1 in the opening session.

The second half was more of the same, as the Chargers controlled play throughout.  The Hornets stood up to the pressure until Amanda Martin (Amesbury, MA) was able to get a shot past Sargent in the 69th minute for her second goal of the season.  Molly MacLure (Westford, MA) was credited with the assist.

For the game, Colby-Sawyer outshot Lyndon, 46-2.  Sargent had a strong game in defeat, recording 23 saves.  Charger goalkeepers Marissa Williams (Mattapoisett, MA) and Oona Bond (Southborough, MA) had a quiet day in combining for the clean sheet, as Lyndon only managed one shot on goal.

The Hornets are right back in action tomorrow when they host New England College in another NAC contest.  Kickoff is 1:00 pm.  Colby-Sawyer also plays tomorrow, as they travel to Johnson State College.
