November 08, 1992|By Paul McMullen | Paul McMullen,Staff Writer

Salisbury State spotted Johns Hopkins a goal in the first five minutes yesterday, but dominated the rest of the way to win their NCAA Division III, Region II field hockey semifinal, 2-1, at Homewood Field.

In today's (1:30 p.m.) region championship at Hopkins, the Sea Gulls (11-5-1) will meet Franklin & Marshall, which beat Eastern -- Mennonite, 2-0, in the other semifinal. The victor of what will serve as an NCAA quarterfinal will move on to the NCAA Final Four next weekend.

Hopkins (11-4), which lost in overtime, 2-1, in Salisbury Sept. 29, jumped ahead 1-0 when senior Kathy Sokolowski converted after a penalty corner.

The Sea Gulls, who had a 19-3 bulge in shots, bounced back behind Kristen Guttilla. The senior right wing got the equalizer a little more than six minutes later, and fed a wide-open Lauren Van Devisser with 14 minutes left. Van Devisser, a sophomore out of Denton who went to North Caroline High, arrived at the left post along with Guttilla's pass.

Guttilla, from Clinton, N.J., has 17 goals and four assists going into today's NCAA quarterfinal.

"Our main objective was to get the ball to Kristen on the right side," said Salisbury State coach Dawn Chamberlin. "She has phenomenal speed and stickwork. If she's not an All-American, something's wrong."
