March 06, 2000|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Sophomore Tom Brown had a career-high eight goals and four assists yesterday, as Western Maryland opened the season with a 27-1 nonleague win over Stevens Tech at Johns Hopkins, setting a school record for margin of victory in men's college lacrosse.

The starting attack unit combined for 17 goals, including a career-high five (with five assists) by sophomore Brett Sweeney and four (with four assists) by freshman Joe Ellis. Junior midfielder Dave Riley added a career-high four goals with two assists.

Western Maryland had its largest scoring total since it set a school record with 32 goals against Villa Julie in the 1996 opener.

Brown, a Hammond High graduate, tied for the third-highest total in Green Terror history in goals and points. Bill Hallett owns both marks with 11 goals and 15 points against Fairleigh Dickinson-Madison in 1989.

Last year Brown led Western Maryland in total points with 25 goals and 16 assists. Sweeney accounted for 15 goals and six assists.

It was the first meeting between Western Maryland and Stevens, the longest continuous college program in the nation (115th year).
