Since 2006, these teams have met on an annual basis, and No. 8 Lynchburg owns a slight 4-3 advantage in the series.

The offense has been paced by freshman attackman Austin Stewart, who has recorded 20 goals and two assists. No. 5 Stevenson has bounced back from a 7-6 loss to No. 6 Tufts on March 19 with back-to-back routs of Hood and Lebanon Valley. Junior attackman Chris Dashiell (12 goals and 21 assists)

Washington College's 13-6 rout of Eastern in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Wednesday unfolded despite the absence of faceoff specialist Michael Trapp, and it isn't clear whether his pulled hamstring will make the junior miss Saturday's second-round contest against Lynchburg. “He's day-to-day right now,” Shoremen coach Jeff Shirk said Friday morning. “He's getting better. We held him out of the first game, but he's been getting treatment every day. We're going to dress him on Saturday and see how it goes.” Trapp - who ranks seventh in Division III with a 69.3 faceoff percentage (226-of-326)

The ends were just as important as the starts for the Stevenson men's lacrosse team in its 13-7 victory over No. 13 Lynchburg in Wednesday night's NCAA tournament quarterfinal at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills. No. 4 Stevenson's fourth appearance in the last five national semifinals was aided by the offense's ability to score goals in the final minutes of the first and second quarters. Sophomore attackman Mark Pannenton converted a bounce pass from junior attackman Chris Dashiell with 1.1 seconds left in the first period and then scored with 38.3 and 19.7 seconds remaining in the second frame.

No. 4 Stevenson's 13-5 pasting of then-No. 8 Lynchburg on Saturday may not have been the team's easiest win of the season, but it might have been the reigning national champion's most thorough. The Mustangs (9-1) turned a slight 4-2 lead after the first quarter into a sizable 10-3 advantage at halftime, and the rout was a welcome development for coach Paul Cantabene. “I thought we played 60 minutes of lacrosse,” he said on Tuesday morning. “That's the first time all year - besides maybe the Tufts game - where we really put everything together.

Salisbury's 13-12 loss to No. 9 Lynchburg Saturday will surely result in the 10-time reigning national champion falling from its No. 1 ranking in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) preseason poll when it is eventually updated. The setback also ended a 31-game winning streak for the Sea Gulls, who had previously lost, 16-12, to Stevenson on April 16, 2011. As far as coach Jim Berkman is concerned though, the loss isn't exactly stunning considering how graduation sapped the team of six starters from last season's squad that went 23-0.

The man-up unit put the Stevenson men's lacrosse team up for good. Just 11 seconds after No. 8 Lynchburg was flagged for a slashing penalty, the No. 5 Mustangs took advantage of their extra-man opportunity when junior attackman Chris Dashiell found sophomore midfielder Michael Crowe wide open on the left side of the crease for a 12-11 win in overtime at Mustang Stadium on Saturday night. Crowe's first goal of the game, with 2:43 left in the extra four-minute period, occurred as a result of the Hornets' defensive focus on sophomore attackman Mark Pannenton, who leads Stevenson with six man-up goals.

Senior midfielder Joe Matta's unassisted goal with 2:08 remaining lifted No. 18 Lynchburg to a 13-12 upset over No. 1 Salisbury yesterday, handing the host Sea Gulls their first loss of the year. Junior Kevin Reinecke and sophomore Billy McCulloch led Lynchburg (8-3) with four goals apiece, and Scott Simmons had four to pace Salisbury. The Sea Gulls (10-1) had three chances to tie the game after Matta's go-ahead goal, but Lynchburg goalie Nick Braun (18 saves) made three saves in the final 1:32 to seal the win.

A year ago, Salisbury opened the campaign with two losses in its first three games. The team has already guaranteed that won't happen this season after winning its first two contests, but one familiar refrain continues to dog the team in 2014. The Sea Gulls - ranked fifth in the most recent United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll - have converted just 14.3 percent (2-of-14) of their extra-man opportunities thus far. That success rate is already lower than last year's 19.6 percentage (20-of-102)

Two games into the 2014 campaign, Salisbury has already improved in a department that bedeviled the team last season. With Saturday's 12-11 overtime decision against No. 11 Lynchburg, the No. 5 Sea Gulls are 1-0 in one-goal decisions. Last year, they went 1-3 in one-goal games, which contributed to a 17-6 record and one of the last remaining at-large bids to the NCAA tournament. Coach Jim Berkman said the key to Saturday's win was reminding the players to simply stick to their roles without overextending themselves.

Nikko Pontrello scored the game-winning goal 19 seconds into overtime, and No. 14 Loyola Maryland beat No. 12 Penn State, 12-11, on Saturday in a game that was moved indoors to Holuba Hall because of last week's snowstorm. The host Nittany Lions (1-1) scored the final four goals of regulation for an 11-all score and sent the game to overtime, but Graham Savio won the faceoff for the Greyhounds (1-1) to start the extra frame.

Salisbury began the season on Sunday with a 14-3 rout of Greensboro without Luke Phipps, but the senior attackman will return for Saturday's home opener against Lynchburg. Phipps, who recorded nine goals and two assists as the fourth attackman last spring, slightly sprained his knee in the preseason, and coach Jim Berkman said the team opted to rest him rather than risk further injury. Phipps is expected to start on attack with senior Rhett DePol and sophomore Brady Dashiell. “[H]
