Northeast and Easton advanced to the title game of the eighth annual James A. Griffin Lacrosse Tournament at Northeast yesterday with first-round, 7-6 wins over Glen Burnie and Chesapeake, respectively.

The day's first game went down to the wire, thanks to a surge by Chesapeake.

The Cougars were down 5-1 with 5:09 left in the third quarter when Dave Wheeloch started the comeback.

His goal was followed by one by teammate Manny Diaz with 3:47 remaining. Greg Fahraman got Easton's lead back to three with a goal, Chesapeake answered on a goal by Eric Daniels with 15 seconds to go in the third.

The Cougars' Jason Emory scored the first goal of the fourth quarter, and Daniels notched his second goal of the night at 8:47 to tie the score.

Easton prevailed, thanks to Mark Prossnor's second goal of the night, with 5:20 remaining in the game.

The second game also included a major momentum shift.

Northeast led 3-2 early in the second quarter, but then Glen Burnie got four unanswered goals by four different players.

Jason Merideth, Seth Murphy, Charlton Allen and Brian Bauer gave the Gophers a 6-3 lead going into the half.

Northeast mounted a comeback in the third, both on offense and defense.

Glen Burnie would not score again the rest of the game and the Eagles managed to tie the score at six on two goals by Eric Walters and one by Steve Louck.

Louck provided the winning goal in the fourth on a great individual effort, first beating his man, then the goalie to give the Eagles a 7-6 lead with 5:17 left.
