Sometime during the second quarter of Wednesday's men's lacrosse game between No. 13 Loyola and No. 18 Towson, a storm that at times pelted Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore with rain passed and a rainbow formed over the field. That natural wonder was about the only positive for the Tigers. The host Greyhounds scored nine goals in the first quarter en route to the program's most convincing win since 2007, a 20-4 pasting of Towson. An announced 583 watched Loyola score the first 10 goals of the game and enter halftime with a decided 11-1 advantage.

COLLEGE PARK - The Maryland men's lacrosse team had almost two years to stew over its last meeting with UMBC. So after Thursday's winter storm, what was another two-hour delay, anyway? The No. 11 Terps used their pent-up frustration wisely, taking advantage of a 6-0 first half to dispose of the Retrievers, 14-3, before an announced 702 Saturday at Byrd Stadium. Senior midfielder Mike Chanenchuk had a game-high five points on two goals and three assists and freshman attackman Matt Rambo scored his second hat trick in as many games in a matchup postponed two hours from its noon start to give Maryland's grounds crew more time to clear the field of snow.

BOSTON -- Last weekend, the Washington Capitals were pondering what had gone wrong in back-to-back losses. They had pulled goalie Jim Carey twice. They had curbed the playing time of defenseman Brendan Witt, their highly paid rookie. And their record, once an enviable 4-1, was suddenly 4-3.But last night Carey and Witt came to play, and their teammates followed suit, overcoming a two-goal deficit for the second time this season -- a feat they had not managed last season -- to defeat the Boston Bruins, 4-2, before 17,137 at the brand-new FleetCenter.

City entered yesterday's girls soccer game at Western with an unbeaten league record, including a lopsided victory over a team that defeated the Doves. But Western had one thing the Knights didn't: Star power. Star Tazwell set up Tiffany Brown's opening goal midway through the first half and then, in the second half, scored twice herself, giving Western a 3-1, Baltimore City League victory. The 5-foot-6 sophomore, who has played since she was 4, used speed and skill to expose weaknesses in the Knights' defense as casually as she cracked a bright grin after her second goal.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Throughout this postseason, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks have been on a steep learning curve in playoff hockey. Last night, however, they were taken to school. The New Jersey Devils taught the Ducks a graduate course in defensive hockey in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals with a convincing 3-0 victory. Game 2 of the best-of-seven series will be in New Jersey tomorrow night before the series moves to Anaheim. "You can see [the Ducks] had a little rust on their blades," New Jersey coach Pat Burns said in reference to Anaheim's long layoff after sweeping its Western Conference final series against Minnesota.

McDonogh's Miranda McCoy said her No. 1 Eagles learned an important lesson in Monday's scare at No. 5 Century - they don't want to get off to a slow start. The Eagles applied that lesson in Thursday's clash of the area's only two undefeated girls lacrosse teams, scoring three goals in the first two and a half minutes to spark a 19-9 victory over No. 6 Marriotts Ridge for their 88 t h straight victory. Those three early goals from Megan Whittle, Casey Black and Grace Muller were the opposite of what happened Monday at Century, when the Knights scored the first three goals and the Eagles had to rally for a 10-7 win. "We came out flat mentally against Century," McCoy said.

Mount St. Joseph lacrosse coach Dave Slafkosky wasn't looking for cupcakes for his team's Easter Lax Day. Tough challenges, he thought, could only help his young squad heading into the core of its Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference schedule. The No. 13 Gaels found more than they could handle in their opener Saturday against Westminster. The Owls, who lost to South River in the Class 4A-3A state final last season, took 14 of the game's first 15 shots, getting four goals each from midfielder C.J. Nichols and attackman Ryan Drenner in a 15-7 win. "Westminster ran by us and played tougher than us in every aspect," Slafkosky said.

The Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team took all the mystery out of the program's 85th meeting with Virginia. Scoring 11 of the game's first 12 goals, the No. 12 Blue Jays dominated the Cavaliers in a 15-8 victory that wasn't nearly as close as the final score suggested during the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday. Johns Hopkins' impressive performance came after a 13-8 loss to No. 6 Syracuse on March 16. Both of the Blue Jays' losses this season have been to ranked opponents - against the Orange and to No. 11 Princeton, 11-8, on March 1. For at least one day, the Blue Jays (6-2)

For a team that has struggled with possession this season, the Loyola women's lacrosse team certainly set the right tone early in Saturday's game against James Madison. Unfortunately for the Greyhounds, they could not sustain it beyond the first half. The No. 12 Greyhounds scored the first four goals and shut out James Madison before halftime, but the Dukes seized the momentum early in the second half and dominated possession in overtime for a 9-8 victory at Loyola's Ridley Athletic Complex.

Until the Lions scored Saturday, an opponent had not put the ball in the net against Marriotts Ridge this season. "We knew we wouldn't go through the season without giving up a goal," Marriotts Ridge coach Kevin Flynn said.
