May 18, 2011|By From Sun Staff Reports

After a little back-and-forth play in the first half, host Salisbury got down to business Wednesday. The Sea Gulls (17-2) went on a 5-0 run that covered the entire third quarter and four minutes into the fourth to beat Dickinson, 12-4, in an NCAA Division III quarterfinal.

Erik Krum finished with a game-high four goals to power Salisbury, which advances to Sunday's semifinal at M&T Bank Stadium to face Roanoke (17-2), a 13-12 winner over in-state rival Stevenson.

Krum opened the scoring at 9:10 for a 1-0 Salisbury lead. Chip Murray answered for the Red Devils (17-2) before the Sea Gulls scored twice. Krum added his second with 1:53 left in the first quarter and Corey Nowak gave Salisbury a 3-1 lead with 14:03 left in the first half.

Dickinson traded goals with Salisbury and trailed 5-2 at the half. Salisbury's offense cranked up in the third quarter as Tony Meneds started the 5-0 run with 12:35 left in the third quarter. Dickinson's final goal came with 9:52 left in the game.

Salisbury outshot Dickinson 40-25 and had a 12-8 advantage in faceoffs. The teams were even in ground balls at 31. Sea Gulls goalie Johnny Rodriguez made seven saves, and teammate Tim Swinburn had one. Dickinson's Greg Hanley finished with nine.
