LYNDON CENTER, Vt. – North Atlantic Conference play continued for the Lyndon State College (2-7-1, 0-4-1 NAC) women's soccer team as they faced Husson University (5-5-0, 4-1-0 NAC).  The Eagles rallied together a 6-0 win; however, the Hornets were able to keep the visitors scoreless in the second half.

Hibbad snuck through the Hornets' defense and went one-on-one with Sargent, collecting her first goal of the game for the 2-0 lead in the 21st minute.

In the 24th minute, Costa lobbed the ball right in front of the net with Carey getting a foot on it to make the score 3-0.
