March 10, 1997|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Dan Stroka and David Maguire scored four goals apiece to lift No. 4 Ohio Wesleyan to a 13-10 win over No. 2 Salisbury State in a Division III men's lacrosse game in Salisbury yesterday.

The loss ended the Sea Gulls' NCAA-record 65-game regular-season winning streak, which dates almost five years to the day. Salisbury's last defeat was on March 8, 1992, when it fell to Roanoke, 15-10, in Baltimore.

The Battling Bishops (1-0) rallied from a four-goal deficit by outscoring Salisbury 9-2 in the second half, including 6-1 in the third quarter.

Maguire scored three times in that quarter, including twice on extra-man opportunities.

The Sea Gulls (1-1) allowed Ohio Wesleyan to score four times on man-up situations, including its first three goals of the third quarter.

The Bishops began the game by scoring the first three goals, including two by Stroka, and led 4-2 after the first quarter. Salisbury stormed back, scoring six unanswered goals to go ahead 8-4 at halftime.

Army 12, No. 8 Georgetown 9: Ross Yastrzemsky and Dan Monahan registered career highs, combining for seven goals, as Army (2-0) upset Georgetown (2-1) before 1,243 in West Point, N.Y.

Yastrzemsky had four goals and Monahan added three to give the Cadets their first win over the Hoyas in three attempts. Georgetown had beaten No. 2 Syracuse four days before.

After the Hoyas went ahead 1-0 at the 2: 32 mark on their first shot of the game, the Cadets scored four straight goals and never surrendered the lead.

Greg Hubschmann cut the Georgetown deficit to 5-4 a little over two minutes into the second half.

Army rebounded as Yastrzemsky and Greg Tily combined for three goals over a 10-minute stretch to push the lead to 8-4.

Georgetown closed to 10-9 on an unassisted goal by Dan Martin with five minutes left in the game. But Jordan Gros and Monahan scored in the final 1: 29, allowing Army to pull away.


No. 1 Maryland 13, Duke 2: Sarah Forbes scored four goals and added an assist to lead top-ranked Maryland (2-0, 2-0) over visiting Duke (2-1, 0-1) in an Atlantic Coast Conference game. Sascha Newmarch, Cathy Nelson and Christie Jenkins each scored two goals for Maryland.

The Terps, who have won 38 games in a row, also extended their national-record regular-season winning streak to 56. The Blue Devils didn't score for the first 47: 44 of the game.
