Hopkins falls

March 23, 1997|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

The biggest day of lacrosse in the area lived up to its billing.

Although there were no upsets in the five games played locally, each had its share of surprises.

Second-ranked Virginia used a 9-0, second-half run to beat No. 4 Johns Hopkins, 16-12, for its first win at Homewood Field in nine years.

"Momentum is a funny thing sometimes," Hopkins coach Tony Seaman said. "But you've got to answer."

In the closest game, Scott Hochstadt scored the game-winner 1: 49 into overtime, as No. 5 Maryland edged No. 10 North Carolina, 13-12. It's the second time in 14 meetings that the Terps have defeated the Tar Heels.

No. 11 Loyola toppled No. 15 Brown, 18-10, ending a five-game home losing streak to the Bears.

Ninth-ranked Navy raised its record to 5-1 to surpass last year's win total, as the Midshipmen downed Delaware, 18-10. And without injured leading scorer Matt Clune, Towson State hung with No. 3 Syracuse before eventually falling, 14-11.
