Leicester, MA - The Northern Vermont University-Lyndon women's soccer team continued to struggle generating offense on Sunday, as they dropped a 5-0 non-conference matchup at Becker College. The Hornets are now 0-2 on the campaign. Sunday's game was the season opener for Becker.
Becker's Lindsey Keith put the Hawks in front at the 13:52 mark of the opening half when she directed a penalty kick past Hornet goalkeeper Lauren Young (Danville, VT). Korra Joubert made it 2-0 five minutes later when she took a pass from Ciara McKissick and fired the ball into the net from 20 yards out. At 29:43 McKissick led Keith from about 50 yards out and Keith beat Young to make it 3-0. Chelsea Sedar's unassisted goal four minutes later gave Becker a 3-0 lead heading into halftime.
Becker continued to control play in the second half, and Keith's third goal of the day at 51:00 accounted for the final score.
The Hawks outshot the Hornets 61-1 for the game. Lyndon's EmmaLee Smith (Woodsville, NH) genetated the Hornets' only scoring chance, but her first half shot went wide. Young made 29 saves in goal and now has 48 saves in two games this season. Three Hawk goalies combined for the clean sheet without being called upon to make a save.
Lyndon will return to action on Tuesday when they travel to NCAA Division II St. Michael's College for a 3:30 pm non-conference matchup.
