LYNCHBURG, Va. – League-leading Lynchburg College used a hot start Saturday to key a 73-44 ODAC women's basketball victory over Shenandoah University.

Lynchburg (16-3, 10-0 ODAC) scored 21 of the game's initial 28 points to take a lead it would not relinquish over Shenandoah (4-15, 1-9).

Sophomore Mia Moore snapped Lynchburg's run with a 3-point play at the 2:41 mark. Unfortunately, LC answered with six straight points in just 76 seconds to extend its lead out to 17 points.

Shenandoah battled its fellow Hornets close in the second stanza, only allowing LC to increase its lead by an additional three points and headed to the halftime locker room trailing 41-23.

The 3rd and 4th quarters were much the same as the second; LC outscored SU by five and four points in those two stanzas, respectively, to provide the final margin of victory.

Junior Kirstyn Arcata paced the visitors with 11 points with freshman Jordan Sondrol adding 10. Lynchburg controlled the glass grabbing 42 of the games 68 rebounds. Senior Erin French had a game-high eight boards for coach Melissa Smeltzer-Kraft's club.

LC shot a sizzling 54.0 percent from the floor with SU shooting 30 percent.

Carolyn Noe, on the strength off four 3-pointers, had a game-high 16 points for the victors.

Shenandoah continues this road trip Wednesday with a 7 p.m. game at Bridgewater.
