March 14, 2010|By Todd Karpovich | Special to The Baltimore Sun

Jamie Lincoln scored five goals and had three assists to lead No. 10 Hofstra past visiting No. 7 Johns Hopkins, 14-6.

The Pride (2-1) never trailed in a game that was delayed for 14 minutes in the first quarter after the wind and rain knocked out the stadium lights. Hofstra led 6-2 at the half as the Blue Jays never managed to find any rhythm within any of their units.

The Pride scored four unanswered goals to increase its lead to five goals by the end of the third quarter. Things did not get better for the Blue Jays (4-2) in the final quarter as they continued to struggle on offense and managed only one more goal.

Tom Duerr and Steven Boyle each had two goals for the Blue Jays. Jay Card had two goals and four assists for the Pride.

No. 5 Princeton 10, No. 19 UMBC 5: Jack McBride and Rob Engelke each scored two goals and had an assist to lead the Tigers (4-0) past the visiting Retrievers (1-4) in wet and windy conditions. Kyle Wimer extended his point-scoring streak to 24 games with a goal and an assist, and midfielder Maxx Davis (Friends) had two assists for UMBC.

No. 1 Virginia 12, No. 15 Cornell 4: Chris Bocklet had two goals and two assists as the Cavaliers (6-0) handed the Big Red (4-1) its worst home loss in 12 years. Cornell's four goals tied for the fewest scored in a game by the Big Red under head coach Jeff Tambroni. Eight players scored for Virginia, which had a 40-29 advantage in shots and won the ground-ball battle 30-24.

Fairfield 10, No. 4 Notre Dame 8: Joseph Marra made a career-high 17 saves to lead the Stags (2-2) to an upset of the Fighting Irish (3-2) in the inaugural "Beating Cancer with a Stick Classic" in Houston. Fairfield scored seven of the first eight goals to build a 7-1 lead with 6:33 to play in the second quarter. Notre Dame rallied, and back-to-back man-advantage goals by Grant Krebs (St. Mary's) cut the lead to 9-7 with 8:56 remaining in the game. A goal by Fairfield's Doug Kuring with 20 seconds left sealed the victory.

No. 2 Syracuse 15, No. 9 Georgetown 12: The Orange (3-1) survived a late rally by the Hoyas (2-2) by scoring three consecutive goals late in the fourth quarter in their Big East opener. Stephen Keogh led Syracuse with five goals, and junior midfielder Josh Amidon finished with four goals and an assist. Ryan Shuler led Georgetown with three goals.

No. 2 Maryland 20, No. 15 New Hampshire 6: Karri Ellen Johnson (Broadneck) and Sarah Mollison each scored four goals to lead the Terps (6-0) past the Wildcats (4-2). Ten players scored for the Terps, who outshot New Hampshire 49-15 and forced 22 turnovers. No. 11 Towson 14, George Washington 4: Junior Jess Dunn (Fallston) scored a career-high four goals to lead the Tigers (4-0) to their fourth straight victory at Johnny Unitas Stadium. After the teams traded goals in the opening minute, the Tigers went on a 4-0 run over the next seven minutes of the first half for a 5-1 advantage.

No. 17 Loyola 11, Cornell 9: Abby Rehfuss and Meg Decker (Mount de Sales) each scored three goals to lead the Greyhounds (4-3) past the host Big Red. Grace Gavin (St. Paul's) and Emily Gibson (North Harford) scored two goals each; Mary Heneberry (Dulaney) had the other.

Navy 14, Lafayette 8: Erin Rawlick scored six goals and had a school-record tying eight draw controls and seven ground balls, as the visiting Midshipmen (8-1, 1-0) topped the Leopards (0-6, 0-1) in the Patriot League opener for both teams.
