Tom Daniels had four goals and two assists and Andrew Goldstein recorded 17 saves as Dartmouth pulled off one of the biggest upsets in school history by stunning No. 3 Princeton, 13-6, yesterday at the Class of 1952 Field in Princeton, N.J.

The win, coupled with Cornell's 14-3 victory at Brown, set up the potential for a three-way tie atop the Ivy League standings among Dartmouth (10-2, 4-1), Princeton and Cornell.

Cornell, which finished its Ivy League season at 5-1, has clinched at least a share of the title.

Dartmouth will go for at least a share of its third league crown Friday when it plays host to Harvard. Princeton faces visiting Brown on Saturday.

In case of a three-way tie, the three teams will share the 2003 title, but the league's automatic NCAA bid will be determined by a drawing conducted by the Ivy League's executive director.

The win over the Tigers ended a 14-game losing streak to Princeton dating to 1988, and it was only Dartmouth's seventh win in 51 meetings.

No. 4 Massachusetts 14, No. 11 Syracuse 13: Jeff Zywicki scored at the 1:10 mark of overtime to propel the host Minutemen (12-1) to their first win over the Orangemen (7-5) in 21 meetings.

Syracuse has lost three straight for the first time since 1981.

No. 2 Virginia 11, No. 15 Penn State 10: The visiting Nittany Lions (6-6) saw their five-game winning streak end after falling behind 5-0.

Tillman Johnson (St. Mary's) made 15 saves for the Cavaliers (10-2), while Chris Garrity, his counterpart and former high school teammate, stopped 20 shots.

No. 7 Hofstra 9, No. 13 Duke 8: Tim Treubig's second goal of the game with 2:34 to play gave the surging Pride (10-4) a come-from-behind win at home over the Blue Devils (8-7).

Hofstra, which has won five straight, rallied from a 6-3 deficit in the third quarter behind goals from five different players.

No. 5 Georgetown 8, No. 7 Rutgers 4: The Hoyas (10-1, 4-1 ECAC) held the Scarlet Knights (9-4, 2-2) to their lowest goal output of the season, getting nine saves from goalie Rich D'Andrea to pick up a league win in Washington.

No. 9 North Carolina 11, Air Force 5: Freshman Scott Falatach (St. Mary's) continued his recent run of strong play, matching career highs with four goals and five points to lead the Tar Heels (7-6) past the Falcons (3-9) in Chapel Hill, N.C.

No. 14 Ohio State 14, Butler 10: The visiting Buckeyes (8-3, 4-1) clinched their first NCAA tournament berth, claiming the Great Western Lacrosse League title with the win over the Bulldogs (5-8, 1-4).
