Lynchburg Edges Women's Soccer, 1-0, in Top-20 Matchup

Lynchburg Edges Women's Soccer, 1-0, in Top-20 Matchup

The No. 20 ranked Emory University Women's Soccer team dropped their second straight one-goal decision on Saturday, falling 1-0 to No. 13 Lynchburg University in a neutral match contested at Sewanee University in Sewanee, TN.

LC's Caitlyn Mertens broke a scoreless tie in the 55th minute, converted on a thru ball off the foot of Rachel Cooke. The shot on goal was just LC's second shot on target in the game as the Eagles limited the Hornets to five shots total and two on net.

Emory held a 10-5 edge in shots and a 5-2 advantage in shots on goal but was held out of the scoring column for the second consecutive match. Sophomore defender Lily Dresner registered a team-high two shots on goal for the Eagles in the defeat.

Emory looks to snap its current two-game slide when the team faces the Saints of Thomas More tomorrow afternoon. Kick off from Sewanee is set for 2:30 PM EST.
