The Game Story:
ASHLAND, VA – Lynchburg’s Tyler Tolson had a game-high six goals as he led the No. 18 Hornets to an 18-9 ODAC win over Randolph-Macon in men’s lacrosse action on Saturday afternoon.

LC (8-3 / 2-0 ODAC) got on the board first when Tolson struck for his first goal at the 12:36 mark of the opening quarter. After R-MC’s (4-5 / 0-3 ODAC) Tyler Midwinter tied the game at 1-1 with 9:45 to go in the first frame, the Hornets reeled off seven of the last eight goals to claim an 8-2 advantage after the first 15 minutes.

Lynchburg pushed its lead to 13-2, scoring five goals in the first 8:17 of the second stanza. R-MC fought back, tallying four of the final five goals of the half, including a pair from Midwinter to head to the intermission down 14-6.

The game remained that way until the 13:56 mark of the third quarter when Tolson scored, then tallied another strike 28 seconds later to put LC on top 16-6.

Kevin Patton and Rich Wilkins scored back-to-back goals for R-MC to cut the Hornets lead in half at 16-8 with 11:05 left in the third, but that would be as close as the Jackets would get as Tolson scored two more times in the final quarter to seal the win for Lynchburg.

Midwinter led R-MC with three goals on the day, while Egan had two goals and an assist for three points. Adam Liberto and Jason Crawford split time in the cage, with Crawford making 10 stops in the second half.

Dylan Hoff scored four goals and added two assists for six points for LC, while Michael Mundorf had two goals and three helpers in the win. Franc Cook saw just under 57 minutes of action in net for LC, making nine stops.
