May 08, 2010|By Sun staff reports

Emily Coady (Westminster) scored four goals in a second straight game, but the UMBC women's lacrosse team fell short, 11-10, to Boston University in the America East championship in Albany, N.Y., Saturday.

The Terriers (11-8) have won the title six straight and 10 times overall.

Traci Landy scored the first goal of the game and the eventual game-winner. Landy's second goal with 8:11 left gave Boston an 11-9 lead. Amanda Pappas (Chesapeake-AA) scored unassisted with 5:50 left to bring UMBC within 1, but no closer.

No. 1 Maryland 17, No. 10 Dartmouth 6: Julie Wadland made 10 saves and faced 37 shots as the host Terps (18-1) outscored the Big Green (11-5) 9-2 in the second half.

Caitlyn McFadden (Notre Dame Prep) led Maryland with four goals. Dartmouth's at-large resume still includes Top 10 wins over Notre Dame and Syracuse, and until Saturday, its previous four losses were by a combined six goals.

McFadden gave Maryland an early 1-0 lead at 27:16 and won the ensuing draw, but Wadland saved a free position and Kelsey Johnson pushed the ball up to the offense. Dartmouth tied things two minutes later when Dana Brisbane faked out a defender and beat the keeper one-on-one.

Maryland wasted little time getting two more goals, winning back-to-back draw controls to score 14 seconds apart for a 3-1 lead with 24:14 to play. Another Wadland save jump-started the transition game, and Kat Collins found Greta Meyer for a goal to make it 3-2 with 20 minutes on the clock.

The Terps rattled off five unanswered goals to go up 8-2 with 8:58 to play.

No. 2 Northwestern 23, No. 11 Vanderbilt 14: Shannon Smith had seven goals and three assists, and the Wildcats (17-1) won the American Lacrosse Conference championship for a sixth straight season.

Four Northwestern players scored three or more goals.

No. 3 North Carolina 13, Cornell 7: Corey Donohoe (North Harford) scored a game-high five goals to lead the host Tar Heels (15-2) past the Big Red (5-10).

North Carolina outscored Cornell, 6-2, in the second half.

No. 9 Georgetown 13, No. 12 Syracuse 11: The Hoyas (13-5) — led by tournament MVP Molly Brown with four goals — went on two 2-0 runs in the last 20 minutes of play to beat the Orange (13-6) and capture their first Big East conference championship.

Georgetown finished with a one-goal advantage in each half. Tee Ladouceur finished with a hat trick for Syracuse and Jordy Kirr had one for the Hoyas.

Orange goalie Liz Hogan made 11 saves and set a school record for most career saves with 484, beating Carla Gigon's previous record of 475 (2000-03).

Ford scored three goals in the first half and helped the Hoyas to an 8-7 lead at halftime. But in a contest with seven ties, the advantage was short-lived.

Syracuse held its first lead of the contest, 9-8, with 24:35 left in the second half as Ladouceur put home a feed from freshman Tegan Brown. Ladouceur, who was later named to the all-tournament team, totaled four points, including three goals along with two draw controls and one caused turnover.


No. 3 Maryland 18, Colgate 10: Junior Travis Reed (Boys' Latin) set a career-high seven points (five goals and two assists) to power the Terps (11-3) past the Red Raiders at the Indians Rock Day of Champions event at Manhasset (N.Y.) High.

Ryan Young returned to his alma mater and had four points on two goals and two assists. Grant Catalino and Will Yeatman each had three points on two goals and an assist apiece.

The Terps await the NCAA tournament selection show to see who they will face in the first round. Maryland is expected to be among the top four seeds in the tournament and to host a game in the first round May 15 or 16.

Stony Brook 11, Albany 7: Behind junior Kevin Crowley's three goals and senior Charlie Paar's 18 saves, top-seeded host Stony Brook claimed its first America East lacrosse championship since 2002.

The win gives the Seawolves, the sixth-ranked team in the country, an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. The Great Danes ended their season with a 5-11 record.

Tom Compitello had two goals and an assist and Jordan McBride added two goals, breaking Kevin Pall's school record of 133.

No. 1 Syracuse 15, St. John's 7: Chris Daniello had four goals and the visiting Orange (5-9, 2-4) won the Big East regular-season championship outright.

The Red Storm fell to 13-1, 6-0.

No. 4 North Carolina 19, Ohio State 13: Thomas Wood matched his career high with five goals to lead a balanced offensive attack as the host Tar Heels (12-2) beat the Buckeyes (7-8).

Both Wood (five goals, one assist) and Gavin Petracca (three goals, three assists) had six points for the Tar Heels.  Wood matched his career high for points in the win and Petracca passed the 150-point mark in his career, boosting his total to 152.
