No. 20 men's lacrosse falls in OT at No. 18 W&L

Trammel Robinson celebreates a goal in Saturday's lacrosse game

Lexington, Va. -- The No. 20-ranked University of Lynchburg men's lacrosse team forced overtime on the road at 18th-ranked Washington and Lee, but the Generals' Jack Ware scored the game-winning goal in the extra period to cinch a 10-9 win for the hosts.

Three Hornets -- junior midfielder Colin Dean (Havre de Grace, Md.), junior attackman Trammel Robinson (Memphis, Tenn.) and senior attackman Evan Lombardo (Franklin Park, N.J.) -- scored twice in the contest.

Senior goalie Patrick Cornelius (Potomac, Md.) made nine saves and collected six ground balls for the Hornets.

Ware scored a game-high four goals for W&L, which assumed sole possession of first place in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference standings with the win.
