THE SKINNY STORY
Franklin & Marshall, ranked fourth in the latest IWLCA poll, scored 10 straight goals to break open a 5-2 game and remain unbeaten in conference play with a 16-3 victory over McDaniel.
• Lara Jensen (West Chester, Pa./The Tatnall School) led the Green Terror with a goal.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• Tori Arcilesi staked McDaniel to a 1-0 lead, scoring in transition with 24:01 on the clock. Jane Cote responded just over three minutes later, finishing a feed from Megan Jackson. Jackson then finished a solo run with 17:24 to play before Cote went to goal by herself with 14:59 showing. Cote found Tabitha Rodriguez and Carolina Kolva finished a solo run to cap a 5-0 run with 12:15 to play.
• Lara Jensen wrapped around from behind to break up a nearly 13-minute minute scoring drought and close the deficit to 5-2. Grace Norley and Ally Marino, however, found the back of the net in the final 9:39 of the half to make it a 7-2 game at the break.
• That momentum carried into the second half with Kolva and Marino scoring 1 minute, 39 seconds apart for a 9-2 advantage with 26:11 remaining. Jackson and Cote each finished solo runs before Jackson hit Cote once again to stretch the lead to 10 with 19:17 showing. Two Jackson tallies and Cote's eighth point of the day made it a 15-2 game with 8:14 to play. Kealey Allison scored the Green Terror's lone goal of the second half with 4:24 showing before Marino capped her hat trick two minutes later.
THE INSIDE STORY
• Kealey Allison extended her goal-scoring streak to 13 games with the late tally.
• Lindsey Farrell (Towson, Md./Loch Raven) grabbed eight draw controls to bring her career total to 232 and move into second place in program history.
