Playing in their last home game, seniors Nate Watkins, Mike Mollot and Mike LaMonica carried No. 9 Maryland to a 14-8 victory over No. 13 Yale last night at Byrd Stadium.

Watkins scored a career-high six goals, Mollot netted three goals to go along with three assists and LaMonica pitched in with two goals for the Terrapins (8-4).

The Terps, who got 11 of their 14 goals from seniors, broke open the game with a six-goal third quarter. Mollot's man-up goal five seconds into the third gave Maryland the lead for good at 6-5.

Edward Britt paced the Bulldogs (9-4) with three goals. Yale goalie Eric Wenzel made 20 saves.

Washington College 12, Western Maryland 8: Craig Rentch scored four goals and Steve Berger netted two goals and had one assist as the Shoremen (11-2) avenged last week's loss to the Green Terror (12-2), by beating Western Maryland in the semifinals of the Centennial Conference championships at Gettysburg, Pa.

Washington College will meet tournament host and top-seeded Gettysburg, 7-6 winners over Franklin & Marshall in the other semifinal, in tomorrow's 1 p.m. final.
