Foxborough, Mass. -- It's not really fair to call Salisbury a Division III lacrosse dynasty. Dynasties, you see, eventually give way to other dynasties. What Sea Gulls coach Jim Berkman has built is more like an empire. And from the look of things, his program plans to rule forever. Salisbury won its second straight Division III national championship yesterday, defeating SUNY Cortland, 19-13, in front of an announced 24,317 at Gillette Stadium. It was the fifth title in the past six years for the Sea Gulls, who are 124-2 since 2004, and eighth overall.

The Fiorentino family had already planned to attend the NCAA men's lacrosse championship weekend in Foxborough, Mass., lining up hotel reservations and tickets. Now they will have a vested interest in the Division III final when senior goalkeeper Nick Fiorentino tries to help top seed Salisbury (21-0) defeat SUNY Cortland (18-1) on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at Gillette Stadium. "I'm so excited about the environment there," he said. "It's going to be so much fun to share that excitement with my teammates."

SALISBURY -- The Salisbury men's lacrosse team gave Jim Berkman a share of an NCAA record, but not without a little anxiety. Twice in the second half of yesterday's installment of the "War on the Shore" series, Washington College trimmed three-goal deficits to one, but the Sea Gulls pulled away to cement a 15-11 decision at Sea Gull Stadium. The outcome also sealed the 326th career victory for Berkman, who tied former Army coach Jack Emmer for the NCAA record for most wins in a career.

SALISBURY -- Being called a second-half team is not an insult to Salisbury men's lacrosse. That's not to say that the Sea Gulls, ranked No. 1 in Division III by Inside Lacrosse, overlook the importance of the first half. Rather, it's a recognition of the mastery of their coach, Jim Berkman. A week ago, Salisbury walked into halftime with a three-goal cushion against No. 10 Villa Julie in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament. In the locker room, Berkman adjusted the offense to feature a two-man game between senior midfielder Bruce Richardson and sophomore midfielder Mike Von Kamecke, both of whom were marked by short-stick defensive midfielders.

HOUSTON -- Craig Biggio got his 3,000th career hit last night, and Carlos Lee's grand slam in the 11th gave the Houston Astros an 8-5 win over the Colorado Rockies. Lee's shot to left field off Brian Fuentes (0-3) came on the first pitch. Biggio singled in the 11th, tying a career high with his fifth hit. Hunter Pence followed with a double before Lance Berkman was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Troy Tulowitzki's bases-empty shot off Brian Moehler (1-2) to lead off the 11th made it 5-4. The loss extends Colorado's season-high losing streak to seven games.

This time, there will be no nightmares about crossbars hit in overtime, or saves that weren't made. This time, there will be no taskmaster coach goading his team by replaying the lowlights of a historic loss on a locker room television. This time, the pertinent question for Salisbury isn't what went wrong, but something more pleasant to consider: Is this the finest Sea Gulls team ever? Coach Jim Berkman and his Salisbury dynasty made it four NCAA Division III titles in five seasons yesterday before an announced 22,778 at M&T Bank Stadium, where they fell behind early, shrugged off a third-quarter tie and hammered SUNY Cortland, 15-9.

If you think Salisbury is going to get after SUNY Cortland in the NCAA Division III men's lacrosse final this afternoon, you should have seen the Sea Gulls compete last fall. Since April 2003, the only thing between Salisbury and perfection is an overtime loss to Cortland in last season's final. They'll give championship weekend at M&T Bank Stadium a rematch this afternoon, but avenging the demise of an NCAA-record 69-game winning streak isn't behind the top-ranked Sea Gulls' 22-0 record.

If Salisbury's men's lacrosse team had to decide between relinquishing the longest current winning streak in collegiate athletics or the national championship banner, there really wouldn't be a choice. The Sea Gulls are proud of their 69-game victory streak, which dates back more than three years, but the title is what they truly seek each season. "It's definitely something we're aware of," leading scorer Dan Boyer (Mount St. Joseph) said of the team's amazing run. "And we do think about it. But it's not our main goal, which is the championship.

SALISBURY -- An hour before Salisbury's NCAA Division III men's lacrosse quarterfinal game against Eastern Shore rival and ninth-ranked Washington College yesterday, there was one thing missing for the top-ranked Sea Gulls: their coach. Salisbury coach Jim Berkman had to be rushed from Peninsula Regional Medical Center to Sea Gull Stadium in time for the game. Berkman, who recently had knee surgery, has been dealing with a staph infection for the past few days. Berkman watched the first half from the Salisbury sideline.

When a team is at the top and stays there for a while, there is always criticism and finger-pointing. With each Salisbury men's lacrosse victory and national championship, there comes more innuendo and envy. It happens all the time to teams that build dynasties. Just ask the Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Yankees and UCLA's men's basketball teams. The complaints and questions never stop for Salisbury coach Jim Berkman, whose Sea Gulls have won the past three Division III national championships and have a 54-game winning streak.
