LYNCHBURG, Va. – Lynchburg scored seven goals in the second quarter, which became too much for Randolph-Macon's Men's Lacrosse team to overcome as they fell 14-6 in Old Dominion Athletic Conference action in Lynchburg on Saturday.

R-MC (3-6, 0-3 ODAC) got on top early.

It marked Adams' second straight game with a goal while Markovic collected his second career assist.

After Lynchburg (4-5, 2-0 ODAC) answered, R-MC went on the attack again. With 6:45 left in the quarter, Camilliere shot a goal past the keeper to give R-MC the lead back. But Lynchburg would end the quarter with a pair of goals to take a 3-2 lead into the second.

The second quarter was all Lynchburg as the Hornets scored seven goals in the period, heading into the intermission with the 10-2 advantage.
