Chase Martin (Gilman) scored a goal with 37 seconds left in the third period to break a 6-6 tie and propel No. 15 North Carolina over second-ranked Duke, 10-9, last night in Durham, N.C.

Martin's three goals and one assist led the Tar Heels (6-5, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who ended an 11-game winless streak in ACC play. Duke's school-record nine-game winning streak was stopped.

Duke (9-1, 1-1) was held scoreless in the opening half for the first time this season, as North Carolina led 5-0 at intermission.

The Blue Devils tied the score at 6 on Jared Frood's third goal with 2: 10 left in the third quarter, but the Tar Heels scored four of the next five goals.

No. 9 Georgetown 16, No. 6 Delaware 9: Andy Flick scored two goals in a 4-0 run to open the second half as the visiting Hoyas (7-2) pounded the Fighting Blue Hens (8-1), ending the nation's longest winning streak at 11 in Newark, Del. Georgetown controlled 20 of 27 faceoffs to hold the country's highest-scoring team 7 1/2 goals below its season average.

Leading 6-5 at halftime, the Hoyas reeled off four goals in the first three minutes of the third quarter as their margin ballooned to 10-5. The Blue Hens didn't take their first shot of the second half until 4 1/2 minutes were gone and never cut the deficit below three.

"I like to see it go that way," Georgetown coach Dave Urick said. "When you don't win draws, it's like fighting an uphill battle. It gave us a real boost."

It marked the first loss by Delaware at Rullo after winning its first five at the first-year facility.

No. 14 Towson 18, Drexel 6: Kevin Sturm had four goals and Spencer Ford five assists as the host Tigers (4-4, 3-2 America East) stopped a four-game losing streak. Towson used a pair of 4-0 runs to lead 9-3 at halftime.

Ohio State 5, Notre Dame 4: Buddy Lange converted off an assist from Kevin Stephan with 10 seconds left, propelling the host Buckeyes (5-3, 1-1) to victory over the Fighting Irish (5-5, 3-1) in a Great Western League game.

Notre Dame led 4-1 with 9: 22 left in the third quarter.

Washington College 21, Haverford 5: Brain Rentch had three goals and an assist to lead the host Shoremen (9-0), who are top-ranked in Division III, to a Centennial Conference win. Jim Kalergis and John Fuller each contributed three goals.

Goucher 12, Catholic 9: Tim Asher scored three goals for the Gophers (4-9, 1-4 Capital Athletic Conference) to become their all-time leader with 118. Ashley Jones also had three goals for Goucher.

St. Mary's 11, Mary Washington 5: The Seahawks (6-4, 4-1) used a five-goal third quarter on the way to a Capital Athletic Conference win in Fredericksburg, Va. C. J. Lauer led St. Mary's with three goals and two assists.

Villa Julie 15, Messiah 6: Behind Travis Williams' six goals, the host Mustangs (5-3) won a nonconference game.
