Eagles Advance To ODAC Championship Game For First Time

Coach Bennison talks to his squad

LEXINGTON, Va. - Bridgewater College defeated Lynchburg 1-0 Saturday afternoon in the ODAC semifinals to reach the conference championship game for the first time in program history.

The Eagles defeated the No. 2 seeded Hornets for the second time in the past two weeks. During the regular season, Bridgewater took a 2-0 victory at Lynchburg.

Leo Alcantara scored on a free kick in the 11th minute and the Eagles held on the rest of the way to claim the historic victory.

Quentin Boric had another solid game in goal, finishing the day with eight saves. The shutout was the seventh this season for the Eagles and the sixth for Boric. Boric now has nine career shutouts, tying the senior for the No. 2 spot on the Eagles' all-time charts.

Bridgewater is now 11-6-1 on the season. The 11 victories is the most for an Eagles' men's soccer team since the 2003 team set the program record for victories in a season with a 12-6 mark.

The Eagles will have a chance to match that 12-win season on Sunday when they play Washington and Lee for the ODAC crown at 1:00 p.m. W&L won the regular season matchup, downing the Eagles, 3-0.
