Phil Anthony scored the game-winning goal at 2:37 of the fourth quarter on a pass from Todd Litterbrandt as the visiting Goucher Gophers upset the St. Mary's Seahawks, 10-9, yesterday in men's college lacrosse.

Goucher goalie Mike Amash made 18 saves, offsetting the Seahawks' 43-29 advantage in shots.

With his sixth save, Amash became the all-time saves leader in Goucher history, eclipsing Mike Tartamella's record of 535 for a career.

The win was the first for Goucher (10-2, 4-2) over St. Mary's (8-4, 4-2) and locked up a top-three seed in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament.

Towson 23, Hartford 11: A 12-goal second quarter led the Tigers (7-2, 3-0) to the America East rout at home.

With the score tied at 2 with 2:08 left in the first quarter, Towson scored six unanswered goals - three by Ryan Obloj. Derek Suddons halted the run for Hartford (4-4, 0-2) with a goal midway through the second quarter, but Towson reeled off nine goals to take a 17-3 lead.

The win is the Tigers' fifth in a row and moves them into first place in America East.

Loyola 18, Radford 5: Gunnar Goettelmann and Brian Tempone each scored three goals as the host Greyhounds (6-2) downed the Highlanders (2-8).

Twelve Loyola players scored as the Greyhounds led 6-1 after the first quarter and 10-2 at the half.

Mount St. Mary's 18, Lehigh 5: Paul Warfield scored seven goals and added three assists as the Mountaineers (6-4, 5-1) dominated the Mountain Hawks (2-8) in a non-league matchup.

Warfield recorded his first score four seconds into the game. The Mount followed with the next four goals to take a 5-0 lead before the Mountain Hawks got on the board at the end of the first quarter.

Salisbury State 14, Mary Washington 13: Amanda Almon scored five of her game-high six goals in the second half as the Sea Gulls (10-3, 4-1) rallied for a 14-13 win over the Eagles (10-3, 3-1) in a Capital Athletic Conference game.

The Sea Gulls scored five straight in the second half to turn a three-goal deficit into an 11-9 lead with 14:22 remaining.

Mary Washington tied the game at 11 before another three-goal run by the Sea Gulls, capped by consecutive goals from Almon, pushed the margin to 14-11 at 7:05. Back-to-back goals by Briana Gervat and Pam Kramer pulled the Eagles to within one, but Salisbury goalie Dena Glisan stopped both shots in the closing three minutes to preserve the win.
