DAVIDSON, N.C. -- Belmont Abbey battled 10th-ranked Lindenwood throughout much of the contest, allowing just one goal in the opening half before falling 3-0 in ECAC Division II Field Hockey League action Thursday.
Lindenwood (6-0, 4-0) opened the scoring 15:55 into the contest on a rebound off a Hinds save. The score stayed that way until the second half, when the Lions scored six minutes in and again five minutes later.
Belmont Abbey (5-4, 2-2) returns to action tomorrow for another ECAC matchup, hosting Bellarmine at 3 p.m. at Alumni Field. The tilt kicks off the Crusaders' Homecoming weekend.
