Kyle Campbell scored seven goals for the second consecutive game to help 11th-ranked Towson to a 16-12 win over 13th-ranked Hofstra in an America East game at Hofstra Stadium yesterday.

The Towson victory ended a seven-game losing streak to Hofstra dating back to 1991, and solidifies the Tigers' spot at the top of the conference. Meanwhile, the Pride fell to 4-5.

Along with Campbell's seven goals, Josh Tankersley posted a career-high four goals and Ryan Obloj and Brad Reppert added two each. Senior goalie John Horrigan also had another big week in goal, making 16 saves, including nine in the second half. Tom Kessler led the Pride, which outshot the Tigers (6-2, 2-0) 47-44, with five goals.

No. 5 UMass 16, No. 15 UMBC 10: The Minutemen (8-0, 4-6) scored the game's first five goals on their way to an Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference victory over the Retrievers.

UMass led 5-1 in the first quarter, and was never seriously threatened. The Minutemen were led by junior midfielder Don Little, who scored twice in the first 10 minutes and five times overall, and Marc Morley who scored four times. Kevin Leveille also contributed a hat trick.

No. 18 North Carolina 7, No. 3 Virginia 5: The Tar Heels (5-4, 1-2) broke a three-game losing streak overall, and a seven-game Atlantic Coast Conference losing streak in the upset victory over the Cavaliers (5-4, 1-1). Junior goalie Kris Blindenbacher frustrated the Cavaliers, making 22 saves. Jeff Sonke and Steven Will had two goals apiece for Carolina.

No. 2 Princeton 15, Brown 2: Ryan Boyle (Gilman) had three goals and an assist and Rob Torti had one goal and five assists to lead the Tigers (7-1, 3-0) over the Bears (3-4, 1-1) in an Ivy League matchup at the Class of 1952 Stadium.

Coupled with Syracuse's 14-13 loss to Loyola, the win could thrust the Tigers back into the No. 1 ranking, which they enjoyed earlier this season.

No. 8 Georgetown 11, Stony Brook 8: The Hoyas jumped out to a 6-1 lead and held on for an ECAC victory over the Seawolves. Steve Dusseau had three goals for Georgetown (8-1, 3-1), which has won 15 straight at home.

No. 19 Penn State 12, No. 20 Hobart 11: The Nittany Lions broke a two-game losing streak behind senior goalie Matt Vallone, who made 18 saves. Sophomore Marshall Feldman had three goals for Penn State.

Delaware 5, Vermont 4: The Blue Hens (3-7, 1-1) used a strong defensive effort to hold off the Catamounts for an America East win at Rullo Stadium. Dave Mullen stopped 11 shots for Delaware.

Penn 7, Dartmouth 4: Sophomore goalie Mike Gault's 27-save performance was wasted by the Big Green (3-4, 0-1), which fell to the Quakers in an Ivy League matchup. Penn attackman Scott Solow had a hat trick.

Salisbury State 9, Adelphi 8: Freshman Andy Arnold's goal with 12 seconds remaining in the third overtime gave the Sea Gulls their fourth overtime victory in five chances against the second-ranked team in Division II.

The Sea Gulls, ranked fourth in Division III, tied the game with a 3-0 fourth-quarter run. Goalie Pat Tewes held Adelphi scoreless for the final 28:46 of overtime. Steve Brianas led all scorers with four goals and an assist.

Mount St. Mary's 16, Manhattan 7: Senior attackman Nick DeFelice (Towson) had four goals and three assists to carry the host Mountaineers (4-4, 4-1) to a win over the Jaspers in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action.

Gettysburg 14, Western Maryland 10: After leading 7-6 at halftime, the Green Terror (6-3, 2-1) was outscored 4-1 in the decisive third quarter before falling to the Bullets (9-1, 3-1) in a Centennial Conference showdown in Westminster.

Pete Milliman scored twice during the third quarter and had four goals overall for the Bullets, second ranked in Division III. The Green Terror, No. 24, was led by five goals from Joe Ellis and two from All-American Brett Sweeney.

Washington College 15, Franklin & Marshall 11: The Shoremen (5-5, 2-1), ranked 13th in Division III, closed the game with five consecutive goals, two by Steve Berger, to upend the 15th-ranked Diplomats in a Centennial Conference matchup.

Washington College trailed 10-5 early in the third, but the Shoremen fought back, scoring 10 of the game's last 11 goals.

Goucher 9, Catholic 6: Junior goalie Mike Amash made eight of his 17 saves in the last quarter and the Gophers' man-down defense denied the Cardinals (6-6, 0-6) on three extra-man opportunities in the final period of the Capital Athletic Conference game. Goucher (9-2, 3-2) got two goals from Phil Anthony and Mike Harper (Calvert Hall).

Villa Julie 21, Neumann 5: Senior midfielder Greg Bardzik, junior attack Bob Rinehimer and sophomore midfielder Larry Dawson each scored three goals for the Mustangs.
