Gene Tundo scored the eventual game-winner and goalie Bill Schell stopped a would-be tying goal to help the No. 9 Massachusetts men's lacrosse team upset No. 3 Georgetown, 13-12, at Garber Field in Amherst, Mass., yesterday.

The win moves the Minutemen (9-2, 4-1) into sole possession of first place in the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference.

The Hoyas (8-3, 3-1) took an early lead at 10-9 with 12:43 left in the fourth quarter, on Pete Cannon's third goal. The Minutemen answered with a 4-0 run, capped by Tundo's goal with 4:58 left for a 13-10 lead.

Cannon scored twice more in the final four minutes before his attempt to tie the game with 10 seconds left was denied by Schell. Cannon finished with a game-high five goals. Sean Morris had four for Massachusetts.

No. 2 Duke 19, No. 8 Army 9: Matt Danowski and Dan Flannery scored six goals apiece to lead the visiting Blue Devils (13-1) past the Black Knights (10-3).

The win ties the school single-season record set in 1999.

No. 6 Cornell 17, Princeton 4: Kevin Nee scored seven goals and the host Big Red (8-2, 5-0) scored four times in the first five minutes.

The loss mathematically eliminated the Tigers (3-7, 2-2) from contention in the Ivy League race, ending a run of 10 straight league championships.

Salisbury 17, Goucher 7: The two-time defending NCAA Division III champion Sea Gulls (15-0) - led by Dan Boyer with four goals and Chris Phillips with three - secured their 11th straight Capital Athletic Conference championship with the win over the visiting Gophers (10-5).

Salisbury has 44 straight wins, a national best, and earned the CAC's automatic qualifier bid to the NCAA tournament.

Penn 9, Loyola 8: The Quakers' Patrick Rogers scored the winner with 51 seconds left in regulation as the visiting Greyhounds (4-7) lost by the same score twice in one week.

Loyola fell to UMBC, 9-8, in double overtime Tuesday.

Stony Brook 10, UMBC 9: Drew Westervelt scored twice during a 5-1 run, but the late rally fell short for the visiting Retrievers (6-7, 4-1 America East).

Marist 11, Mount St. Mary's 10: Tim Iuculano's overtime goal lifted the visiting Red Foxes (5-6, 4-2 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) over the Mount (6-7, 5-1).

Mount St. Mary's rallied from a three-goal, fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime.

McDaniel 11, Ursinus 10: Steve Hoffman scored a game-high five goals, including the winner to pace the Green Terror (5-7, 2-4 Centennial Conference) over the host Bears (2-9, 0-6).

Hoffman netted the game-winning goal with 21 seconds left in the game as McDaniel ended a two-game losing streak to post its third straight win over Ursinus.

Washington College 17, Muhlenberg 7: Jon Spivey (Dulaney) matched his career high of six goals and had two assists for the host Shoremen (8-3, 5-1 Centennial).

Galen Marsh led the Mules (7-7, 0-6) with two goals.

Greensboro 16, Villa Julie 4: The Pride (8-5) - led by Ian Montgomery and Matt Perry with three goals each - ended a 3-3 first-quarter tie by going on a 5-1 run in the second.
