LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) In the D3 rank, the Washington and Lee Generals had their home opener in Lexington tonight.

Washington and Lee University

The Generals hosted Claremont and it was pretty much all Washington and Lee in the first half.

It looked like the Claremont Stags might get on the board with a handoff to Matthew Orehek, but the ball pops out at the goal line, resulting in a touchback allowing Washington and Lee to take over.

The Generals quickly turned that into another touchdown, with this run by McKenna Johnson. He's loose around the right side and dives-in for the touchdown.

Claremont though, flips a switch after the break, scoring 21 unanswered points and kicking the game-winning field goal as time expires. Claremont comes-back to beat Washington and Lee 31-28 the final.
