Goalkeeper Lou Kousouris finished with a career-high 21 saves and a career best for fewest goals allowed as Army upset 10th-ranked Hofstra, 6-2, yesterday in West Point, N.Y.

Kousouris held Hofstra scoreless for the first half and stopped all six of the Flying Dutchmen's extra-man opportunities. Army led 1-0 at halftime on a goal by Ross Yastrzemsky.

Hofstra (6-3) tied the game at 1 on Paul Judge's goal 1: 22 into the third period, but the Cadets (7-4) answered with goals by Chad Hadlock, Yastrzemsky and Tom Miller to forge ahead for good, 4-1. Brian Langtry's goal midway through the fourth quarter pulled the Flying Dutchmen within 4-2, but Army sealed it with two goals in the final minute.

Hofstra was held to two goals for the first time since 1986, and Army's six goals were the fewest it has scored in a victory since defeating Lehigh, 6-5, in April 1996.

No. 1 Princeton 19, Cornell 8: Jesse Hubbard had five goals and three assists to lead visiting Princeton its 21st straight win. Chris Massey had two goals for the Tigers (8-0), tying a school record of 28 games with at least one goal.

Hubbard got Princeton's offense going with three first-quarter goals, then added a goal in the second period and assisted on two others as the Tigers led 12-2 at intermission. The Big Red (2-10) was held scoreless in the third period, while Princeton's lead grew to 16-2 after four goals by four players.

The Tigers, whose final games are against Rutgers and Dartmouth, won 24 of 30 faceoffs and outshot Cornell 39-22.

No. 5 Georgetown 14, Hobart 9: Senior All-American Dan Martin had two goals and four assists as the visiting Hoyas won their fifth straight game. Georgetown's Greg McCavera added three goals.

Georgetown (9-2) led 6-2 at halftime, and a pair of goals by Andy Flick pushed the lead to 8-2 before Hobart scored three straight times to get within 8-5.

The Statesmen's rally was stalled when Georgetown scored five of the next seven goals.

No. 6 Syracuse 19, Penn 10: Casey Powell had five goals and Doug Jackson four for the host Orangemen (8-2). Ryan Powell added three goals and two assists and Rob Kavovit four assists for Syracuse, which outshot Penn 72-45.

Penn was within 9-5 at halftime, but the Orangemen pulled away by scoring on six of 24 shots in the third period. Casey Powell had two of those goals and assisted on another to extend Syracuse's lead to 15-7.

Syracuse had 36 shots to Penn's 22 over the final two quarters, and Peter McGill's goal with four minutes gone in the fourth period ended a 14-minute scoring drought by the Quakers.
