W&L MEN'S LACROSSE FALLS AT FRANKLIN & MARSHALL, 5-3

LANCASTER, Pa. -- Fourteenth-ranked Franklin & Marshall scored the first five goals of the game to outpace 15th-ranked Washington and Lee, 5-3, in non-conference men's lacrosse action on Saturday afternoon.

Trailing 5-0 with 4:09 remaining in the third quarter, the Generals (2-3) began their comeback bid as junior attackman Gavin Molinelli (Northport, N.Y./Northport) scored an extra-man goal off an assist by junior attackman Jack Murray (Earlysville, Va./Albemarle).

Battling through a series of injuries, W&L was unable to find the net again until 2:03 left in the game when Molinelli assisted on an extra-man goal by senior midfielder Dustin Martin (Manlius, N.Y./Fayetteville-Manlius). The combination proved fruitful a second time as Martin scored off an assist by Molinelli at 1:53 for the Generals' third extra-man goal of the contest.

The comeback bid fell short, however, as the visitors were unable to beat the F&M goalie again before time expired.
Senior Ansel Sanders (White Stone, Va./Woodberry Forest) made 10 saves for W&L, while Mike Sartorius and Will McIntire combined for 15 saves in the Diplomats goal.

The Generals return to action on Wednesday when they host Colorado College. Game time is 3:30 p.m.

Gettysburg finished off the first-half scoring with another goal at 1:22, and added a goal in both the third and fourth quarters to finish the day's scoring.

Senior Ansel Sanders (White Stone, Va./Woodberry Forest) made 10 saves for W&L, while Pat Vaughan made 11 stops in the Bullets' net.

The Generals climbed back to within 5-4 on an unassisted tally by Martin with 13:12 remaining in the third period, but the Warriors vaulted back to a two-goal advantage on an extra-man goal by senior attackman Sean Malone (Calgary, Alberta/Sir Winston Churchill) with 6:02 remaining in the third period.

Again W&L came back, this time the Generals knotted the game at 6-6 with 12 seconds remaining in the third quarter on goals by junior attackman Jack Murray (Earlysville, Va./Albemarle) and Martin. Both were assisted by junior attackman Gavin Molinelli (Northport, N.Y./Northport), with Martin's goal coming man-up.

Wilcox again gave the Warriors a lead as he scored off an assist by junior attackman Sang Duong (Havertown, Pa./Haverford) with 12:56 to go, but the Generals tied the game at 7-7 with 9:11 left as Molinelli scored off a failed clearing attempt.

Neither team could find the net again until Martin's game-winner.

Martin's four goals led the Generals, while Molinelli totaled one goal and four assists. Murray added two goals and senior Ansel Sanders (White Stone, Va./Woodberry Forest) notched 12 saves in goal.

Wilcox led the Warriors with three goals. Junior Sean Powers (Drexel Hill, Pa./Mosignor Bonner) stopped 10 shots in net, including four in the first two overtime periods.
