Washington And Lee vs. Lycoming
March 2, 2004
The Game Story:
LEXINGTON, Va. Senior midfielder Dustin Martin (Manlius, N.Y./Fayetteville-Manlius) scored off an assist from senior midfielder Mark McLewee (Timonium, Md./Dulaney) with 2:36 remaining in a third overtime to lift 12th-ranked Washington and Lee to an 8-7 win over Lycoming on Tuesday afternoon at Wilson Field.

Martin's score was his fourth of the game and gave the Generals (2-1) their only lead of the game.

Lycoming (0-1) opened the scoring as senior attackman Dan Wilcox (Corning, N.Y./Corning East) scored unassisted with 7:57 remaining in the first quarter, and assumed its largest lead at 5-2 on another Wilcox goal with 10:37 remaining in the first half.

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.

Washington and Lee returns to action on Saturday as it travels to 10th-ranked Gettysburg for a 1:00 pm contest.
