CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Towson State University, the team that was on the playoff bubble, burst Virginia's yesterday.Towson midfielder Tony Millon, after a 50-yard run, scored his fourth goal from outside the top of the crease with 6 minutes, 7 seconds remaining to lift Towson State to a 14-13 upset of Virginia in the opening round of the National Collegiate Athletic Association lacrosse tournament at Scott Stadium.The win by 11th-seeded Towson (10-3) over No. 6 Virginia (10-4) left the crowd of 803 stunned, especially since the Cavaliers, who once were ranked No. 1 during the regular season, were picked by a few experts to win the national title, and the Tigers barely made the 12-team tournament.

IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. - The rumble continues. It's from the Bayhawks, whose runaway 20-12 triumph over the Rochester Rattlers last night gave the Baltimore team wins over every Major League Lacrosse team this season. It also came from Mark Millon, the sensational scorer who shredded the Rattlers' defense for eight goals and four assists, setting MLL single-game marks for goals and points. After an opening-game loss at home to Long Island, the Bayhawks have won five straight, four on the road.

The ball rolls sleekly along the edge of Mark Millon's lacrosse stick in a recent Warrior Lacrosse television ad. In a flashy maneuver, Millon then dribbles the ball off the stick's bottom half.But here's a little secret: It took Millon nine hours to complete the 30-second ad.Now witness Millon on the field, where the U.S. national team's top attackman needs no extra takes. It's one step and he's gone, zipping past defenders for another open shot."He's probably one of the few guys I've seen who is quick and fast," U.S. coach Bill Tierney said.

Almost three weeks ago, when Bayhawks attackman Mark Millon was preparing for the team's June 27 game against Rochester, he really didn't feel too inspired. "I didn't feel that good; I was like cruising through the warm-up," said Millon, the leading scorer in Major League Lacrosse with 28 goals and 11 assists. "All of a sudden, I got into the action real quick. I was like kick-started into the game." When his dismantling of the Rattlers was over, he had amassed a league-record eight goals and 12 points.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - It had all the makings of a typical Bayhawks-Long Island Lizards matchup: hard-fought, a lot on the line, and marred by rain. A lot of rain - enough to postpone last night's New York Mets game 15 miles away. Playing in a downpour that lasted all afternoon and through most of the game, the Bayhawks scored five of the last six goals to overcome the Lizards, 15-13, at Long Island's Mitchel Field. It was the first meeting between the teams since Long Island's overtime win in last season's Major League Lacrosse championship game.

The weather didn't cooperate, but the Bayhawks christened Ravens Stadium as a lacrosse venue, anyway, last night. The Bayhawks downed Nationals Division rival Rochester, 13-10, in front of an announced crowd of 3,625, although a driving rainstorm through much of the first half took some luster from the Major League Lacrosse opener at the NFL stadium. "The rain slowed the field down, and the sticks were affected," said attackman Mark Millon, who led the Bayhawks with three goals. "But just being out on the field, it was special.

The timing was just right for Erin Millon when Roland Park needed a new girls lacrosse coach this spring. Millon, formerly known as Erin Brown, had been a stay-at-home mom since her son Mcabe was born two years ago, but she was ready to try something new. Coaching a high school team is about the only thing she hasn't done in lacrosse. A Fallston graduate and former Maryland All-American, Millon played in two World Cups, helping the United States win championships in 1997 and 2001. She then served as the women's division director for US Lacrosse from 1998-2004.

BOSTON - The Bayhawks seemed to be in trouble early in last night's Major League Lacrosse game against the Boston Cannons. They lost the league's best faceoff man, midfielder Paul Cantabene, after he suffered a seven-stitch gash above his left eye barely four minutes into the game. Shortly thereafter, they lost midfielder Josh Sims to a hamstring injury. But Ben Defelice filled in admirably for Cantabene, winning 19 of 33 faceoffs, and Jeff Sonke stepped in for Sims and contributed five points, including one two-point goal.

What home jinx? When the Bayhawks needed to turn it on last night, they unleashed their offense and assured themselves a berth in the Major League Lacrosse playoffs by routing visiting New Jersey, 23-13. After five consecutive defeats at Johnny Unitas Stadium, the Pride, which lost an 11th consecutive game, arrived at just the right time for the Bayhawks, who scored nine second-quarter goals to take command. Following an 25-14 triumph at Boston the previous week, the Bayhawks (7-5) enter the four-team postseason tournament in high gear.

After the game, the Bayhawks contended that the presence of former coach Brian Voelker in the other team's lineup provided no extra motivation, and that facing him wasn't even mentioned during the week. Regardless, the Bayhawks did yesterday what they struggled to do at times last season under Voelker: They played near-perfect defense and put a team away when they had the opportunity. Thanks in large part to goalie Greg Cattrano, the Bayhawks forced the Boston Cannons into two long scoring droughts as they ended a two-game losing streak with a 15-7, non-divisional victory in front of 3,307 sun-drenched fans at Ravens Stadium.

LOWELL, Mass. - The Bayhawks have yet to learn to focus for an entire game, particularly away from home. Last night the Bayhawks withstood their own inconsistency and pulled out a 14-13 win over the Boston Cannons in Major League Lacrosse. "I don't know what the answer is," said Mark Millon, who led the Bayhawks (3-2) with four goals. "I think we are pretty motivated as a team, but we sure didn't look like it in the third quarter." That was when the Bayhawks seemed poised to put Boston (1-3)

BOSTON - The Bayhawks have met their greatest success this season on the road. Make that their only success. Last night, the Bayhawks completed the road portion of their schedule with a 6-0 record, turning in a thorough beating of the league-leading Boston Cannons, 25-14. With the win, the Bayhawks (6-5) became the first team in Major League Lacrosse history to win all of their road games. They're 0-5 on their home field at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson, but the team's road record has put it in position to all but clinch a playoff spot with a win there against New Jersey in its Aug. 14 season finale.
