Two familiar local rivals will meet today for the fourth time this season with the National Junior College Athletic Association women's lacrosse championship the prize at Anne Arundel Community College. That was assured yesterday in the semifinals when host Anne Arundel routed Cayuga (N.Y.) CC, 24-3, and CCBC-Catonsville fought off Herkimer CC, 12-9, in a physical battle to set up a third consecutive title showdown between the Maryland schools. Two-time defending champion Catonsville was an 11-9 winner in 2004 and took last year's game, 7-6, in double overtime, but Anne Arundel has taken two of three meetings this spring, the latest in a 10-3 romp in the regional final.

CCBC-Essex picked a bad time to run into a hot goalie. The Knights' offense had been on a roll, averaging nearly 19 goals in their previous six games. But Herkimer County (N.Y.) Community College's Brett Queener's spectacular performance yesterday ended the Knights' dreams of winning a second straight national title. Queener made 20 saves, from a variety of angles and with several parts of his body, and Herkimer ran off seven consecutive second-half goals to rally for a 10-5 victory over host CCBC-Essex in the National Junior College Athletic Association title game.

To CCBC-Essex coach Tim Puls, Stew Monture was supposed to be an afterthought, a mere bump in the host Knights' road to a National Junior College Athletic Association men's lacrosse title. By halftime of yesterday's NJCAA title game, however, the Herkimer County (N.Y.) Community College freshman better resembled a brick wall, scoring six of his career-high nine goals during a 12:42 stretch in the first half, as the Generals ran out to a big lead and rolled to a 21-10 win to send Essex to its second straight title-game defeat.

Patience is not one of Jim Stagnitta's strong suits, but when he arrived at Rutgers University more than a year ago, he didn't have the luxury of rushing things. Bill Dirrigl had just left the school after one season to take the job Dave Cottle vacated at Loyola. Stagnitta, who guided Division III Washington and Lee to 12 consecutive winning seasons, jumped at the Rutgers opportunity, but time wasn't necessarily on his side. He didn't get to see many of his players until 10 days before a preseason scrimmage against Johns Hopkins.
