McDaniel Roundup: Terror's NCAA tourney run done in by Lynchburg

In a game in which the defenses dominated the night, Lynchburg was finally able to break through for the game's lone goal midway through the first overtime, defeating McDaniel 1-0 in the first round of the 2017 Division III women's soccer tournament on Saturday.

Sarah McDonald anchored a backline for the Green Terror (12-6-2) that thwarted attacks by the Hornets (19-3) all night. McDonald finished the game with 10 saves while the defense — anchored by Kristen Upton in the middle — cleared multiple other opportunities.


Kennedy Jakubek netted the game-winner for No. 20 Lynchburg, finishing a pass that Caitlin Mertens sent along the end line from the left side. Jakubek was on the back side of the net to knock the ball into the net for her 11th goal of the season at the 95:56 mark.

McDaniel's best chances came when Kirsten Gibson took a ball from over the top in the 21st minute and had a one-on-keeper, but her shot from the top of box peeled just left of the frame.

In the second half, Abby Keen floated a ball from 40 yards out that bounced off the crossbar and over to keep it a scoreless game in the 56th minute.
