April 19, 2009|By From Sun staff reports

No. 7 UMBC's six-game winning streak was broken as host Hartford edged the Retrievers, 10-8, in men's lacrosse.

UMBC (9-3, 3-1 America East) can still gain the top seed in the America East tournament with a victory over Vermont on Saturday at UMBC Stadium.

The Retrievers outshot the Hawks 54-24, but freshman goalie Scott Bement made 19 saves for Hartford (2-10, 1-3).

After Hartford scored the game's first two goals, UMBC took its lone lead as junior attackman Matt Latham followed a goal by Ryan Smith with back-to-back goals, giving the Retrievers a 3-2 lead two minutes into the second quarter. But Hartford closed the quarter on a 3-0 run and led 5-3 at halftime.

The loss ended UMBC's America East regular-season winning streak at 12 and its 2009 perfect road record (4-1).

NO. 15 MARYLAND 9, PENNSYLVANIA 2:: Eight players scored as the Terps (8-5) took an early lead en route to a win over the host Quakers (3-8) in Maryland's regular-season finale. Jeremy Sieverts led the Terps with two goals, and Bryn Holmes won 10 of 13 faceoffs.

TOWSON 10, DELAWARE 8:: The Tigers (6-7, 4-2 Colonial Athletic Association) scored three straight goals in the third quarter to take control and held on to edge the host Blue Hens (5-9, 2-3). Towson, which ended a two-game skid, clinched a spot in the CAA tournament as Will Harrington and Bill McCutcheon combined for six goals, including one each in the final 2:06 as the Tigers held off a charge.

SIENA 9, MOUNT ST. MARY'S 6:: The Mount (3-8, 3-3 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) allowed six straight goals in the second half after taking a two-goal lead and fell to the host Saints (8-5, 6-0). Mount St. Mary's goalie T.C. DiBartolo was outstanding in the loss, with 13 saves in the first half and 21 for the game as the Mount flirted with the upset early.

GOUCHER 16, DREW 6:: Playing in front of the largest home crowd in their program's history, the Gophers (9-4, 4-1 Landmark) limited the Rangers (6-6, 3-2) to two goals on seven shots in the first half and cruised to victory. Brian Hoge led the Goucher offense with four goals and three assists and had a hand in all three.


No. 2 Maryland 16, Virginia Tech 6: : The Terps more than lived up to their billing as they went into Blacksburg and handled the Hokies in the regular-season finale for both teams.

Nine Terrapins netted goals as Maryland finished the regular season with a 15-0 overall record and clinched the top seed in the Atlantic Coast Conference, going 5-0 in league play.

The speedy Terrapins picked apart the Hokies' defense for four early goals, but a spirited Tech squad refused to give in. Rachel Culp put the Hokies (7-9, 1-4) on the board with an unassisted goal with 19 minutes remaining in the first half before assisting Carpenter four minutes later to cut the Terps' lead to 4-2.

Back-to-back goals by Terrapins freshman Kristy Black ended Tech's run.

LOUISVILLE 13, NO. 14 LOYOLA 12:: The Greyhounds (10-5, 3-4 Big East) let a 6-1 lead evaporate in their loss to the visiting Cardinals (9-5, 3-4).

With the Greyhounds leading 9-8, the Cardinals scored the first three goals of the second half to take the lead for good.

NAVY 8, BUCKNELL 7:: The Mids (11-4, 4-2 Patriot League) scored six consecutive goals to take the lead after falling behind 5-1 and held on to defeat the host Bison (9-7, 4-2).
