Hornet women unable to keep pace with SUNY Delhi on Senior Day

Lyndonville, VT - The Northern Vermont University-Lyndon women's soccer team couldn't get anything going on Saturday afternoon, as they dropped an 8-0 decision to SUNY Delhi.  The loss drops the Hornets to 1-12 on the season and 1-6 in North Atlantic Conference play.  It also eliminates Lyndon from contention for a NAC post-season berth.  Delhi improves to 8-6-2 overall and 5-2-1 in the NAC.

Delhi scored twice in the opening half, as Brianna Laing and Alexa DuBois both found the back of the net.  Moving to the second half, DuBois scored again in the 50th minute off of an assist from Reanen Goodspeed, then Goodspeed notched back to back goals to extend the Delhi advantage to 5-0.  Delhi added three goals in the game's final ten minutes to account for the finals score.

The Broncos outshot the Hornets 37-4 and earned 14 corner kicks to none for Lyndon.  Delhi goalkeeper Rachel Scoones made four saves in the opening half before giving way to Jessica Shultis after intermission.  Lyndon keeper Lauren Young (Concord, VT) made 11 saves on 13 shots on goal in the opening half.  Victoria McCormack (East Lyme, CT) relived Young in the second half and made five saves on 11 shots on goal.

Before Saturday's game Lyndon seniors Eleanor Harrington (Fareham, Hampshire, UK) and Jessica Hillman (Gardiner, ME) were recognized for their contributions to the Hornet soccer program.

Lyndon will finish the season on Tuesday afternoon when they host the University of Maine at Farmington in a 2:30 pm NAC contest.
