Although it was frustrated and trailed for one of the few times this season, Franklin's boys lacrosse team is still undefeated after yesterday's come-from-behind 10-8 win over visiting Catonsville.

Jesse Headley, who had three goals and three assists, was joined by Mike Higgins (two, three) and Tommy Montanye (three, one) among Franklin's top scorers in a Baltimore County Class 4A-3A victory that kept the Indians (6-0 overall, 3-0 league) primed for Wednesday's showdown at conference champion Dulaney.

Matt Woods and David Borcik scored for the Indians, who were held to a season low in scoring by Catonsville (6-3, 5-1), whose other losses were to No. 12 Dulaney and No. 9 Friends.

"We usually stay ahead, but it was good to have to play from behind," said Montanye, who scored Franklin's fifth, sixth and eighth goals, including an over-the-shoulder, behind-the-back goal after Comets defender Gus Weinkam shut him out in the first half.

Down 5-2 midway through the third quarter, Catonsville's Matt Reymann (two goals, two assists), Ben Cohee (two, two) and Kevin Corcoran (one, two) led a four-goal run for a 6-5 lead with 1:04 left in the third quarter.

The scoring spree included goals by Josh Janney and Brian Sommers, and followed a second quarter during which Franklin's Geordy Clements (16 saves) stopped eight of 10 shots.

"At first, our defense was only giving up shots from pretty far away, so I had time to react," Clements said. "But in the third quarter, they passed well and scored a lot from the back door."
