WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. - UMBC's three-year reign as Northeast Conference women's lacrosse champion is over. The Retrievers, the only champion the NEC has known since lacrosse was instituted as a league sport in 1998, simply couldn't handle rising power Monmouth and fell in the championship game, 14-9, yesterday at Kessler Field. UMBC had beaten Monmouth in the three previous NEC title contests - 12-11 in 1998; 15-9 in 1999, and 13-12 in 2000 - but ran out of firepower this time and simply couldn't handle Monmouth's Heather Bryan.

"I'm not going to claim responsibility, this is just what's happened."Apparently, the hard knocks toughened the Mount (10-5-2) for Northeast Conference play, which it has dominated, although its nine-game winning streak ended Wednesday with a 0-0 tie against St. Francis (Pa.)

That's almost 18 more than her season's average, and the primary reason that No. 2 seed St. Francis (19-10)

EMMITSBURG -- Mount St. Mary's started with four straight losses in Northeast Conference play last season and desperately needed a win last night to avoid the prospect of doing it again.The Mount got it against St. Francis (N.Y.), but it was far from easy."This was a huge win for us because if we go 0-3 facing a road game [at Monmouth Wednesday], it could mean our confidence goes," said Mount forward Tony Hayden, who accumulated 16 points, a game-high 10 rebounds and two steals in the 79-73 victory.
