Tonight's Games

April 22, 1994

Johns Hopkins (5-3) at Navy (6-4)

Site: Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Annapolis

Time: 8

Outlook: Both teams are coming off dramatic wins -- Hopkins came back from a two-goal deficit in the fourth quarter to beat Maryland, 12-10, and Navy edged Towson State, 13-12. Last year against Hopkins, Navy led 6-3 at halftime, but the Blue Jays outscored the Mids 5-0 in the third quarter and went on to win, 11-8. Attackman Terry Riordan leads Hopkins with 33 points (27 goals, 6 assists), and Navy's top point-getter is A Rob Bailey (15, 16). The game will be tape-delayed on HTS at 4 p.m. Sunday.

ACC tournament semifinals

At Scott Stadium, Charlottesville, Va.

North Carolina (7-4) vs. Maryland (5-4)

Time: 6

Outlook: The Tar Heels have owned the Terps and this tournament. Second-seeded North Carolina has won all five ACC tournaments, and its 12-7 win in Chapel Hill last month was its ninth straight over Maryland. The Tar Heels are led by Ryan Wade (19, 13), a senior from Severn who was voted the top midfielder in college last season. The four losses are the most for the Tar Heels since 1990. Junior A Rob Chomo (14, 15) paces the Terps, who are nursing several injuries in the midfield.

Virginia (8-2) vs. Duke (9-3)

Time: approximately 8:30

Outlook: The Cavaliers earned the top seed by routing North Carolina, 16-6, on April 9, but their seven-game win streak was stopped by the Blue Devils on Saturday, 9-8. Both goalies, Virginia's James Ireland and Duke's Joe Kirmser, have had good seasons. The Cavaliers' steadiest player has been senior D Craig Ronald (Loyola). Duke A Scott Harrison (24, 22) is the top point-getter in the ACC. The semifinal winners advance to the title game Sunday (1 p.m., HTS) at Klockner Stadium.
