Hoff's Six Points Lead No. 3 Lynchburg Past Guilford

LYNCHBURG, Va. Dylan Hoff scored three goals and three assists in Lynchburg College's 18-4 men's lacrosse win over Guilford College Saturday night. The Hornets (14-1, 6-0 ODAC) are ranked third in this week's USILA Coaches' Poll.

Lynchburg's Max Voumard also scored three times, twice in the first quarter, which helped the hosts to a 3-1 edge after 15 minutes. Hoff had two goals and two assists in the decisive second quarter, which saw Lynchburg open a 12-2 halftime lead.

"They are a legitimate number-three (team) in the country," said Guilford head coach Tom Carmean. "Thomas Deane played really well, and so did a lot of the younger defensemen, who got some good experience against what is probably the best attack in the country."

Deane, the Quakers' freshman goalie, made a career-high 15 saves in a little over three quarters of work. Senior Chris Sisk, one of four goal scorers for Guilford, tallied 6:25 into the first quarter to draw Guilford to within, 2-1.

Carmean said he was pleased how his team competed, especially early in the game.

"We want to take away a positive experience," Carmean said. "Playing against that level of team and sticking around in the early part of the game was a part of it."

The Quakers (6-8, 1-5 ODAC) close the regular season next Saturday (4/21) at Roanoke College.
