LYNCHBURG, VA – The 13th-ranked Lynchburg College field hockey team picked up its' first win of the season Friday night 8-2 over visiting DePauw University (IN).
The Hornets opened the scoring early with a Deanna Smith tally from Lindsay Leonard just 1:36 into the game.

Katie Kline found the back of the cage on a Leonard feed and LC took the 4-1 lead in intermission.

Smith and Williams scored unassisted goals early in the second half while Heather Dodge and Leonard added late tallies. Ellis scored for DePauw in the closing minutes, assisted by Caroline Torie.
Leonard finished with two goals and two assists while Williams and Smith each scored twice. Kline posted a goal and an assist.
