February 28, 2010|By From Sun staff reports

Matt Langan scored a career-high six points, three goals and three assists, as the visiting Loyola men's lacrosse team beat Quinnipiac, 11-5, on Saturday.

The Greyhounds (2-0, 1-0 Eastern College Athletic Conference) held the Bobcats (0-1, 0-1) to two goals in the second half.

Loyola took a 5-3 halftime lead when Patrick Fanshaw scored with seven seconds left in the first half. The Greyhounds then scored the first three goals of the second half to take control of the game.

Loyola's defense, which held Navy to seven goals Feb. 20, limited the Bobcats to just 12 shots on goal. The Greyhounds also forced eight clearing errors by Quinnipiac, forcing 26 turnovers overall.

"We were a little sloppy early, but the guys composed themselves at halftime," Loyola coach Charley Toomey said. "We played good, solid defense for 30 minutes, and that was the difference in the game.

"It was good to see Matt Langan step up. We figured their zone out in the second half, and we got good looks at the cage. We have to work at getting our shots that we think can go, and once we get them, we have to put them away."

Jake Hagelin made seven saves in goal for Loyola.

Salisbury 9, Widener 7: Sam Bradman had a hat trick as the Sea Gulls (3-0) earned their second road win of the season.

The Pride (0-2) took an early lead before Salisbury scored three straight to take a 4-2 advantage at the end of the first quarter. Salisbury stretched its 5-4 halftime lead by outscoring Widener 2-1 in the third quarter.

No. 2 Maryland 17, No. 5 Duke 4: Sarah Mollison, Katie Schwarzmann and Amanda Spinnenweber had hat tricks to power the visiting Terps (3-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) past the Blue Devils (4-1, 0-1).

Maryland took a 4-0 lead in the first half with two goals from Spinnenweber and one each by Mollison and Schwarzmann. The Terrapins' defense did not allow a goal until Sarah Bullard hit a free-position shot with 10:51 left in the first half. Maryland ended the half with a 5-0 run.

No. 9 Princeton 10, Johns Hopkins 9, OT: Kristin Morrison scored her fourth goal with 2:26 to play in overtime to lift the visiting Tigers (1-0) over the Blue Jays (1-2).

Lizzy Drumm scored her second goal with 6:34 remaining in regulation to pull the Tigers even at 8. Hopkins quickly answered as senior Erin Russell (Severn) controlled the draw for the Blue Jays.

Just 21 seconds after Drumm's goal, freshman Monica Fischer (Fallston) found sophomore Rachel Ballatori on the crease. Ballatori faked a shot high and then went low on Erin Tochihara for her second goal to give Hopkins a one-goal lead.

Barb Previ won the draw for Princeton and freshman Cosette Larash (Archbishop Spalding) came up with a stop on Morrison, but the Blue Jays failed to clear the ball. Larash came up with a second save on Morrison, but again Hopkins couldn't clear and this time Drumm made the Blue Jays pay, scoring her third of the day with 3:15 remaining to tie the score at 9.

Navy 14, Davidson 7: The Midshipmen (5-0) outscored the host Wildcats (1-2) 6-1 margin over an 8:50 span to open the second half and earn the win.

Navy captain Erin Rawlick led all scorers with nine points (six goals, three assists) and added four draw controls, and Caitlin Mandrin Hill produced her fifth straight multipoint game with three goals and one assist.

Rawlick now has a team-leading 23 goals, 13 assists and 36 points through five games (7.2 points per game).

Vanderbilt 17, UMBC 10: Hannah Clark had five goals to power the visiting Commodores (1-2) past the Retrievers (2-2).

Amanda Pappas had three goals for UMBC.
