The Game Story:
HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, VA - Hampden-Sydney's Phil Dick scored unassisted with 2:28 to play in the fourth overtime to lift the Tigers to an 8-7 victory over Washington and Lee on Saturday in ODAC lacrosse action.

The game, which was the longest in Washington and Lee history, went back-and-forth throughout, featuring four ties and three lead changes before Dick netted his second goal of the contest. W&L led the entire first half and held a 3-2 advantage in the locker rooms.

After tying the game at 4-4, the Tigers took their first lead (5-4) on Dick^s first goal of the game with 1:23 to play in the third quarter. The Generals then tied the game with 6:52 remaining as sophomore midfielder Gavin Molinelli (Northport, N.Y./Northport) scored off an assist by senior midfielder Rob Brown (Wilton, Conn./Wilton). Molinelli then scored unassisted at the 3:36 mark to give the Generals a 6-5 lead.

The lead was short-lived, however, as HSC's Jason Rostan scored unassisted just 10 seconds later and Matt Fasnacht scored off an assist by Chris Lucas with 53 seconds remaining to give the Tigers a 7-6 lead. W&L then won the ensuing faceoff and junior midfielder Dustin Martin (Manlius, N.Y./Fayetteville-Manlius) found Brown to tie the game with 27 seconds remaining in regulation.

In the first three overtimes, both goalkeepers made game-saving stops as the two defenses were the key. Junior goalie Ansel Sanders (Weems, Va./Woodberry Forest) recorded four overtime saves and had 10 for the game, while Hampden-Sydney^s Jeremy Bull made two overtime saves of his own and 12 overall.

Finally, in the fourth overtime, Dick made his run off the right side and shot between two General defenders for the game-winner.

Molinelli led the Generals with three goals and one assist, while Martin and Brown each tallied one goal and one assist. Hampden-Sydney was paced by Lucas' two goals and two assists.

Washington and Lee returns to action on Wednesday as it plays host to Randolph-Macon for a 3:30 pm contest.
