Waffle Scores 8, as Jacksonville Downs VMI in OT

But after allowing two goals, VMI put together a five-goal run to gain a commanding 6-2 lead. The five-goal run marks the most consecutive goals VMI has scored since Anken took over for the 2011 season. VMI's offense was extremely versatile during the run, with five different Keydets, East, DeBlasio, Bosse, Leonard and Long, all scoring once.

The Dolphins answered back on the next two face-offs, scoring twice before the close of the second half. Jacksonville's goals came just nine seconds apart.

The Keydets scored three of the third quarter's first four goals, with two coming from Leonard and a third from DeBlasio. Waffle broke up the consecutive goals After DeBlasio' s tally, Jacksonville struck three times in a row as Waffle hit a pair and Lange chipped in the third to round out the period.

VMI hit back-to-back goals to open the fourth quarter. Long struck twice followed by Mowbray just 45 seconds later. After Waffle scored his sixth goal of the day, Leonard tallied VMI's final goal of the game with 10:35 to play. The Dolphins took advantage of the scoreless drought, running off three straight goals to tie the action at 12-12 forcing overtime.

The Keydets return to Lexington next Saturday when they continue MAAC play, hosting Marist College. Game time is set for 1:00 p.m. at the Institute's SprinTurf Field, located directly behind Foster Stadium.
