Second best in the nation

Friday December 3 2010


The men's soccer team lost 2-1 to defending national champion Messiah College after a controversial "no call" sent the game into overtime in the NCAA Division III championship Saturday in San Antonio, Texas.

Lynchburg was up 1-0 with less than five minutes to go when Messiah scored after what announcers said was clearly a push that was not called. In the first overtime, Messiah scored a second goal, ending the game.
