SWEET BRIAR, Va. — Despite an organized effort by the host Vixens, No. 24 Lynchburg left Babcock Field with a 10-0 road victory on Saturday afternoon.
"I'm really proud of how organized we stayed throughout the game and how we stuck to our plan for the full 90-minutes," said head coach Jason Capps. "When we're battling a nationally-ranked team it's tough to focus on the scoreboard, but what's important for us is that we accomplished many of the goals we had entering today.
The opening goal came for the Hornets (11-2-1, 4-1-1 ODAC), in the third minute when Kennedy Jakubek assisted on a goal from Rachel Cooke, who blasted a shot from distance to the far post.
The Vixens' (1-12-0, 0-6-0) midfield and backline held firm and organized, keeping the Hornets from adding a second goal until the 16th minute of play.
Sweet Briar senior goalkeeper Caroline Thomas (Appomattox, Va.) notched seven saves in goal for the Vixens.
Tbe Vixens open the final road stretch of the season on Wednesday, October 17, with a 5 p.m. kickoff scheduled at Randolph. Sweet Briar's match at Randolph is the first of two-straight on the road before concluding the season with a pair of home matches.
