No. 3 Terps fall to No. 2 UNC in field hockey

Second-ranked North Carolina (16-1, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) held No. 3 Maryland (13-3, 4-1) scoreless until Jemma Buckley's goal at the final horn and emerged with a 2-1 field hockey victory Saturday in Chapel Hill. The Tar Heels got goals from Jaclyn Gaudioso Radvany in the eighth minute and Kelsey Kolojejchick with 20:30 left to play. The Terps were held without a shot or a corner by the nation's top-ranked defense in the first half but took four penalty corners in the final seven minutes of the game. Buckley scored on the final one, but it wasn't enough. Maryland finished with eight shots. "Carolina is a strong team," Maryland coach Missy Meharg said. "It took us a little while to get into tempo. The second half was strong, but we're looking to get those two halves together."

Men's soccer: Olakunle Banjo and Phil Martinelli each scored to lead host Towson (2-10-1, 1-7-1) to its first Colonial Athletic Association victory of the season, 2-1 against UNC Wilmington (3-11-1, 1-7-1). The first-half goals gave the Tigers their first win since Sept. 20. … Host Navy (5-7-3, 2-2-1) scored twice in the first 10 minutes and held on for a 2-1 victory over Patriot League-leading American (4-1-0, 6-9-1).

Women's soccer: Junior forward Sarah Pfundstein (South River) scored two minutes into overtime as host Salisbury (11-4-2, 7-1) clinched the top seed and a first-round bye in the Capital Athletic Conference by earning a 2-1 victory over St. Mary's.

Men's lacrosse: Graduate student Eric Lusby (Severna Park), seniors J.P. Dalton (St. Mary's High) and Dylan Grimm, and junior Scott Ratliff have been named Loyola captains for the 2012 season. … Virginia coach Dom Starsia was given the F. Morris Touchstone Award as the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association's Division I Head Coach of the Year.
