Junior Randy Tolson scored both of his team's goals as the Towson men's soccer team advanced to the America East men's championship game with a 2-1 win over host Hartford yesterday.

The third-seeded Tigers (14-4-1) will play Northeastern, a 2-1 winner over Boston, on Saturday at noon.

America East Rookie of the Year Alon Lubezky gave the second-seeded Hawks (12-6-2) a 1-0 lead with his conference-leading 21st goal in the 18th minute.

Tolson evened the score in the 26th minute, chipping a 25-yard shot over the head of Hartford goalie Chris Doyle.

The game appeared to be heading to overtime before Tolson blasted a shot from 18 yards into the upper left corner with 1:06 left.

Johns Hopkins 3, Moravian 2: Senior midfielder Ryan Kitzen scored the game-winning goal with 1:16 remaining in regulation to lead the Blue Jays over the Greyhounds in the semifinals of the ECAC Mid-Atlantic regional championships at Western Maryland.

The Blue Jays advanced to today's championship game against Franklin & Marshall, which defeated host Western Maryland, 4-2, in the first semifinal. Hopkins beat the Diplomats, 3-2, in late October.

The Greyhounds tied the match at 2 with 11:21 remaining on a goal by Daniel Samuelsson, setting the stage for Kitzen's heroics.

Franklin & Marshall 4, Western Maryland 2: Vinny Pedalino assisted on the game's first goal, setting a school mark for career assists (26), but the host Green Terror was unable to hang on.

Just 52 seconds into the second half, Ryan Tetteris redirected a Tim McCallum pass, giving Western Maryland a 2-1 lead. But the Diplomats scored three unanswered goals in the game's final 27 minutes to earn a berth in the championship game.

Field hockey

Maryland 7, Fairfield 1: Senior All-Americans Rachel Hiskins and Caroline Walter each scored two goals and junior Carissa Messimer had four assists as the second-seeded Terrapins overpowered the Stags in an NCAA first-round match in College Park.

Maryland advanced to take on visiting Syracuse today at 2 p.m.

The Terps outshot the Stags 16-0 in the opening period en route to a 4-0 halftime lead. Dina Rizzo, Autumn Welsh and Sara Silvetti also scored for the Terps.

Messimer's four assists were the most by a Terrapin in an NCAA game in the school's 14 tournament appearances, and the total is tied for third most by any player in NCAA tourney history.

Volleyball

Towson 3, Stony Brook 0: Andrea LeBlanc totaled a game-high 35 assists and Liz Goubeaux had a team-high nine kills as the Tigers (27-3, 12-1 in America East) swept the Seawolves, 30-27, 30-28, 30-26.
