Lincoln University, PA - For the first time this season, the Hollins soccer team went on the road in search of their first win of the season. Earlier in the week, the match against Greensboro was postponed due to lightning strikes so Hollins faced off with Lincoln in just their second match of the season.

The Lions proved by be inhospitable hosts, scoring less than one minute into match. With more than 44 minutes left in the first frame, Hollins would need to step up her defensive effort if they were to mount a comeback against Lincoln. However, it was the home team that continued to find success in the offensive zone, scoring three more times before the midway point of the first half. The Hollins defense finally got some much needed stops and found themselves down, 4-0, at the break. The Lions out-shot their guests by 18 in the first 45 minutes of play. In the second half Lincoln added to it's lead by scoring in the first five minutes of play. As the evening went along, Hollins got it's best scoring chance of the contest with about 20 minutes left to play, but the Miranda Springston shot was stopped by keeper Lena Rodriguez to preserve the shutout, 6-0.

Keeper Kendra Rich stopped six of the 12 Lincoln shots that were on net. 

Kayla Butts scored three times while Diana Martinez added a pair of scores for the Lions.

Hollins will stay in the Keystone State when they face Valley Forge tomorrow at 3:30pm.
