ASHLAND, Va. – Junior attacker Kelly Jaeger (Baltimore, MD/St. Paul’s School for Girls) scored three goals and distributed two assists to lead the fourth-seeded Randolph-Macon College women’s lacrosse team to a 10-5 victory over visiting fifth-seeded Lynchburg College in the quarterfinals of the 2004 Old Dominion Athletic Conference tournament on Wednesday, April 21.  Also for the Yellow Jackets, sophomore midfielder Liz Lombardo (Baltimore, MD/Mercy) scored three goals and fellow sophomore midfielder Margaret Meigs (Richmond, VA/Collegiate) added two goals.
With their sixth consecutive win, the Yellow Jackets improved to 9-9 overall this season.  The Hornets finish the 2004 campaign at 6-10. 
Randolph-Macon now moves on to play top-seeded Washington and Lee University in the ODAC semifinals at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.  Washington and Lee, a 20-1 winner over Bridgewater College on Wednesday, is now 13-3 overall, and will host Saturday’s semifinals and Sunday’s 2:00 p.m. championship game in Lexington, Virginia.  The other semifinal at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday will include Virginia Wesleyan College (14-2), a 21-0 winner over Guilford College in quarterfinal action, and Roanoke College (9-5), which defeated Sweet Briar College 11-4 on Wednesday.
After Lynchburg freshman midfielder Kelly Vornadore (Springfield, VA/Bishop Ireton) scored off an assist by sophomore attacker Cressita Bowman (Dallas, TX/Greenhill) less than two minutes into the contest, the Yellow Jackets would rattle off three straight goals, by Jaeger, junior midfielder Catie Proulx (Concord, NH/Concord), and Lombardo. 
Vornadore would score again for the Hornets, followed by a goal from her teammate, junior midfielder Kim Hamblen (Vienna, VA/James Madison).  The last goal of the half was scored by Randolph-Macon’s Jaeger, and the Yellow Jackets were up 4-3 at the break.
Lynchburg would score twice to open the second period – Vornadore found the back of the net, and then senior attacker Sarah Kirby (Pasadena, MD/Northeast) scored off an assist by freshman midfielder Gina Davis (Aberdeen, MD/Edgewood).  The Hornets held a 5-4 lead over Randolph-Macon.
The advantage would not last long, however, as three minutes later Randolph-Macon’s Lombardo scored to tie things up.  What would stand as the game-winning goal was then scored by freshman midfielder Traci Phipps (Annapolis, MD/Annapolis).  The Yellow Jackets would score four more times before the end of the game – two goals by Meigs,  one goal and two assists by Jaeger, and one goal by Lombardo.
Following the performances by Jaeger, Lombardo, and Meigs, Randolph-Macon’s Phipps and Proulx each scored one goal.
For Lynchburg, Vornadore led the way with three goals.  Hamblen and Kirby each scored one goal, and Bowman and Davis added one assist each.
