Hornets down Eagles

POULTNEY, Vt. – Lyndon scored a goal in the first half and a pair in the second to claim a 3-0 victory in North Atlantic Conference men's soccer action.

Emmitt Simpson (Barton, Vt.) opened the scoring with just 13 seconds left in the first half, converting a feed from Matt Browne (Seymour, Conn.) giving the Hornets a 1-0 advantage at the interval.

Ben Taylor (Barre, Vt.) doubled the lead in the 62nd minute when he found an opening near the right side of the box and struck a low ball to the back post just out of the reach of Green Mountain Nate Kishabugh.  Patrice Lamumba (Burlington, Vt.) added a third with just one minute left in to the contest.

After conceding twice, the Eagles came to life and were unlucky not to cut the lead in half when a goal by Andrew Sanders was disallowed. Minutes later, Charly Thevenau rang a shot off the inside of the post and watched it travel across the face of the frame to be cleared by a Lyndon defender.

The Hornets outshot the eagles 20-7 on the afternoon, forcing Kishbaugh into seven saves.  Jason Gray (East Thetford, Vt.) made three saves en route to a clean sheet for LSC.
