No. 8 Duke women rally past No. 14 Terps

Senior Lydia Hastings got the No. 14 Maryland women's soccer team off to a promising start with a sixth-minute goal, but host No. 8 Duke (15-2-1, 7-1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) scored three times in a span of 15 minutes for a 3-1 win Sunday afternoon. The Terrapins (9-4-4, 3-4-2) finish up the regular season Thursday when they host No. 7 North Carolina at 7 p.m.

More women's soccer: Host Navy earned a 3-0 win over Holy Cross (2-12-3, 0-5-1 Patriot League). The Mids are in fourth place in the Patriot League with 10 points and will clinch a berth in the postseason tournament with a win or draw at Bucknell on Saturday in their regular-season finale. … Led by two goals and an assist from junior forward Ali Miller, Delaware (8-6-3, 4-3-2) overcame a one-goal deficit to end a four-game winless streak with a 4-2 Colonial Athletic Association victory over host Towson (9-9-0, 4-6-0). After falling behind by a 2-1 margin in the first half, the Blue Hens scored three times in the second half to spoil the Tigers' Senior Day. Entering the final week of the regular season, the Tigers are in ninth place in the CAA standings. The top six teams qualify for the conference tournament. … Katie Higgins scored on a header in the 102nd minute as host Iona (5-9-3, 4-2-1 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) topped Loyola, 1-0, in double overtime. The Greyhounds (5-11-1, 3-3-1) fell to 0-2-1 in extra sessions this season. Sophomore keeper Didi Haracic made five saves in net and held a team scoreless in regulation for the third straight match. Haracic, who has not allowed a goal in the last 310 minutes of regulation time, became the sixth keeper in Loyola history with 90-plus saves in a season. … UMBC's winless season ended with a 2-0 loss to America East rival Binghamton (6-9-1, 3-4-1). The Retrievers finished 0-14-3 overall and 0-6-2 in the conference. … Freshman Alicia Mirando had half of host Mount St. Mary's season-high four goals in a 4-1 victory over Quinnipiac (4-9-1, 3-5-0 Northeast Conference) that keeps the Mount (6-8-2, 4-4-0) in playoff contention.

Men's soccer: In its regular-season home finale, Loyola played visiting Niagara to a 1-1 double-overtime tie. Junior Kevin Curran scored for the Greyhounds (9-4-2, 4-2-1 MAAC) in the 69th minute, while Callum Willmott answered for Niagara (8-4-4, 3-2-3) in the 87th minute. … Jimmy Ockford scored with 3:27 left in the second overtime to lift host Mount St. Mary's to a 2-1 win over Quinnipiac (5-7-1, 3-3-0 Northeast Conference).
