LEXINGTON, Va. -- The No. 20 Washington and Lee women's soccer team fell to No. 10 Lynchburg, 1-0, on Saturday morning at Watt Field.

The Generals fell to 14-2-1 overall and suffered their first conference loss of the season (10-1), while the Hornets impoved to 17-1 overall and an undefeated 11-0 in the ODAC.

After a scoreless first half, the Hornets notched the game-winning goal at the 67:53 mark after senior Angela Bosco (Huntington Station, N.Y./Huntington) controlled a pass from junior Dana Nelson (North Barrington, Ill./Barrington) and sent the ball into the net.

The Generals had two chances to tie the game in the second half when first-year Tricia Jessee (Roanoke, Va./Patrick Henry) and junior Haley Ward (Federal Way, Wash./Federal Way) each notched a shot on goal, but the Hornets keeper made the saves.

Sophomore Addie Healy (Waterford, Va./Woodgrove) suffered the loss for the Generals, playing all 90 minutes and finishing with five saves. First-year Tess Frelick (New Hope, Pa./New Hope-Solebury) picked up the win, also playing the entirety and making two saves.
