Army's Jack Emmer became the all-time winningest coach in NCAA Division I men's lacrosse history with his 301st victory yesterday, a 17-14 win over Lehigh yesterday in West Point, N.Y.

John Ryan's five goals helped Army (4-4, 2-0 Patriot League) end a three-game skid. The Mountain Hawks are 4-5, 1-1.

Army registered three of the game's last four scores to break open a one-goal contest in the final 10 minutes. The Black Knights had opened up as much as a five-goal lead early in the second half, but Lehigh crawled back into contention.

No. 2 Princeton 12, Penn 6: Former Gilman star Ryan Boyle had five assists before injuring his hamstring, and Josh White led all scorers with three goals to lead the visiting Tigers (5-2, 2-0 Ivy League) to their fifth straight win.

"Hopefully Ryan won't be out too long," said Princeton senior Matt Trevenen, who moved from midfield to take Boyle's spot as the feeder after the injury. "He's the biggest part of our offense."

Penn fell to 4-4, 1-2.

The Tigers led 7-6 after Luke Dixson's goal with 6:17 remaining in the third quarter and held the Quakers scoreless in the final period.

Brad Dumont and Will MacColl also scored twice each for Princeton, which got nine of its goals from the midfield.

Salisbury 23, York 4: Josh Bergey and Andy Arnold combined for eight goals as the Sea Gulls (9-0, 4-0) cruised past the Panthers (3-2, 1-2) in the Capital Athletic Conference.

Mike Ricucci had three goals and Ryan Esposito added two for Salisbury.

Women

Washington College 12, Swarthmore 3: Junior Janet Studdiford scored her 100th career goal, finishing with four, as the Shorewomen outran the host Garnet Tide (3-4, 0-3) in the Centennial Conference.

The Shorewomen, already off to their best start ever at 9-0 overall and 5-0 in the conference, broke their program record for consecutive victories. The 1989 team had won eight in a row.

Junior Casey Sawma also scored four goals for Washington College and Junior Minta Sayres added two goals.

St. Mary's 18, Marymount 4: Sophomore Karli Libertini scored six goals and added three assists in leading the fourth-ranked Seahawks (10-0, 2-0) past the Saints (6-5, 0-2) in a Capital Athletic Conference game.

St. Mary's took an 8-2 advantage into the half and never looked back. Sarah Sloane and Kate Story combined for six goals for the Seahawks.

Bucknell 8, Mount St. Mary's 7: Lauran Nuss scored the game-winner with 15:40 left as the Bison (4-4) defeated the visiting Mountaineers (3-7) in a nonconference game.

After trailing 5-4 going into the break, the Mount took a 7-6 lead with 18:58 remaining but was unable to hold it down the stretch.

Kirby Day and Erin LaMotte led the Mount with two goals each.

McDaniel 16, Dickinson 7: Tracy Kessler scored five goals as the Green Terror (1-5, 1-2) got its first win of the season by defeating the Red Devils (1-5, 1-2).

McDaniel raced out to a 9-2 lead in the first half and held Dickinson to five second-half goals.

Sara Thomas added three goals for McDaniel.
