Freshman Omar Alfonso scored twice in the final 15 minutes to propel top-seeded Loyola past Marist, 4-2, yesterday in the semifinals of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

Loyola, the two-time defending conference champion, will play third-seeded St. Peter's at noon today for the title. The Peacocks defeated No. 10 Rider, 2-0, in the other semifinal.

The Greyhounds (11-6-3) let a two-goal lead slip away before Alfonso, the MAAC Rookie and Offensive Player of the Year, scored his 16th and 17th goals of the year.

Kevin Nash and Nate Lyden also scored for Loyola.

Salisbury 3, York 1: The top- seeded Sea Gulls won their second straight Capital Athletic Conference championship and third in four years with the victory in Salisbury.

The win gave Salisbury an automatic bid to the Division III NCAA tournament. It was the 11th straight victory for the Sea Gulls (15-2-2), who got goals from David Pusinsky, Marcus Hunkeler and Christopher Mills.

Muhlenberg 2, Johns Hopkins 1: Evan Smallwood scored off a free kick in the 29th minute and the host Mules held off the Blue Jays to win the Centennial Conference title and an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III tournament.

Hopkins (15-3-1) could receive an at-large bid to the tournament tonight.

James Henshaw gave the Mules a 1-0 lead when he scored 5:37 into the match. Hopkins tied it at 1 on a header from Traver Davis at 23:45.

Lehigh 3, Navy 1: Navy's season ended with the road loss. Holy Cross' tie at Bucknell earlier in the day forced Navy to either tie or defeat Lehigh in order to clinch a spot in the Patriot League Tournament.
