BALTIMORE, Md. Washington and Lee scored five straight goals over a 10:02 stretch during the second and third periods en route to a 12-4 win over Franklin & Marshall in non-conference men's lacrosse action on Sunday afternoon at Boys' Latin High School in Baltimore, Md.

The Generals (3-2) took a 1-0 lead just 2:33 into the first quarter when junior attacker Grant Martin (Towson, Md./Calvert Hall) scored off an assist from sophomore attacker Ned Rider (Manakin-Sabot, Va./Collegiate). The Diplomats (3-2) tied the game at 1-1 with 1:48 remaining in the opening period on an unassisted goal by freshman midfielder David Steiner. W&L junior midfielder Jim Ryan (Virginia Beach, Va./Norfolk Academy) then notched an unassisted tally just 23 seconds into the second period to give the Generals a 2-1 edge, but F&M knotted the score at 2-2 just 59 seconds later on an unassisted goal by sophomore midfielder Peter Moon.

However, Martin scored his second goal of the game off a feed from freshman attacker Tim Skeen (Baltimore, Md./Towson) at the 9:51 mark of the second period, which began the aforementioned five-goal spurt to extend W&L's advantage to 7-2 with 14:49 left in the third quarter.

F&M freshman attacker Mark Hild scored off a feed from sophomore attacker Bobby Atkins at the 9:45 mark of the third period to cut the deficit to 7-3, but the Generals would scored five of the last six goals of the game, including a pair by Rider, en route to the 12-4 win.
