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.
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.
