Soccer Suffers 2-0 Setback to Washington & Lee

LEXINGTON, VA - Washington & Lee soccer used a quick score in each half to earn the 2-0 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) victory over the visiting Tigers of Hampden-Sydney.

W&L's Conor Starr scored on an unassisted tally in the sixth minute while Parker Wolfinger scored a header goal off a crossing pass from Al Organ in the 49th minute. Hampden-Sydney upped the offensive pressure late in the second-half but was unable to break through the General defense.
