Andrew Lucas scored his fifth goal with two minutes left in overtime to lift third-ranked Gilman over visiting Boys' Latin, 13-12, in yesterday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference first-round game.

The host and fourth seed Greyhounds (11-4), the defending tournament champs, will play top seed McDonogh (18-2) at Johns Hopkins in tomorrow's 8 p.m. semifinal. Ranked No. 1 in The Sun, McDonogh routed Gilman, 17-5, in Friday's regular-season finale.

The fifth seed Lakers (15-4), ranked second in The Sun, tied yesterday's game with one second left to force overtime.

Lucas's effort tied the career-high five goals he scored in an earlier win over Loyola. He also added an assist. Andrew Faraone and Kevin Boland scored twice with three assists and Jesse Kohler had one goal and two assists.

Keeper Jay Pfeifer had 21 saves for Gilman, and defender Damien Davis had one assist as the Greyhounds played without injured All-Metro attackman Ryan Boyle for the second straight game.

The victory marked the second time this season that Gilman required a late goal to defeat the Lakers. Boys' Latin was ranked No. 1 and coming off a one-goal overtime upset of previous No. 1 McDonogh, when Faraone's goal with 1: 24 to play secured a 15-14 win for the Greyhounds.

The Greyhound also overcame last season's Gilman coach, John Tucker, who won three league titles before taking an administrative position at Boys' Latin and is now a Lakers' assistant.

Dan Lamonica led Boys' Latin with three goals and four assists, and Brian Nee scored four times.

No. 5 Loyola 11, No. 6 St. Paul's 9: Devin Weatherley's three goals and two assists led host Loyola (13-6) past the Crusaders (13-6) in the first round of the MIAA A Conference tournament.

John Cummings and Wes Bollinger each scored twice and had one assist as third seed Loyola advanced into tomorrow's semifinal against No. 2 seed St. Mary's (10-4), ranked No. 3.

Loyola, which split earlier games with St. Paul's, led 6-4 at halftime and 8-6 after the third quarter, before St. Paul's tied the game at 8 on consecutive goals by Jay Wich and Ben Cusson. Kyle Bell put Loyola up to stay, 9-8, midway through the last period.
