LC downs Danville in men's soccer     Send a link to a friend

[SEPT. 23, 2004]  Lincoln College won its fifth straight men's soccer match by downing Danville 4-2 in action at Lincoln Wednesday afternoon. The Lynx will play SWIC in Belleville Sept. 28 in their next action.

"We are playing real well at this point of the season, and it was great to see us score some goals," said LC coach Ben Massena. "We have been winning, but we haven't been able to put many goals on the board until Wednesday, as we were limited to a single goal in three straight games. We didn't get a shutout Wednesday, but our offense picked up and got us the win. It was a very physical game and they (Danville) had two red cards; however, we were able to keep our composure and play solid soccer from the beginning."

Santos Omar Rodriguez scored the first goal of the game off an assist from Adrian Contreras, and Contreras scored the second goal with the assist coming from Rodriguez to give the Lynx a 2-0 lead at the half.

Danville scored the first goal in the second half to cut the lead; however, the Lynx rebounded with two more goals to put the game away. Leandro Jones took a pass from Augistine Barboza and put it in the net to increase the lead to 3-1, and Barboza later scored on a penalty kick to increase the lead to 4-1. Danville scored late in the game on a deflected kick to complete the scoring.
