Lynchburg vs. Roanoke The Lynchburg Hornets knocked off :00 Roanoke for the ODAC tournament title
on this field just 18 days ago.

Roanoke would attempt to make a
statement in the first half as Chris
Keating feeds big Jon Mason from behind
the net, and Mason will crank one in at
the 12:59 mark of the first.

Lynchburg comes back on the
opposite end with junior midfielder
Ryan Quick. He makes a nice unassisted
move to the cage and score to tie the
game at one all.

Early in the second - now tied at

2-all - freshman Zack Thomas works his
way around to the front of the net and
reverses to free himself for the shot
and another score for the Noke.

Lynchburg answers a minute later
as Quick feeds Brian McCulloch who
beats Matt Madelin to again tie it. *CG final Lynchburg
9 But Roanoke would prevail as Roanoke Keating gets this tally and Roanoke 10 wins 10-to-9 and advances to play two NCAA Quarterfinals time defending national champ Salisbury
on Sunday in the national semi-finals.
