Little passing. Wild shots. And forced situations.That's exactly how the Navy men's lacrosse team played for the first half. And it might have continued if not for Midshipmen midfielder Andy Ross, who decided to take it upon himself to end this selfish play.Ross set up three goals in the fourth quarter, including the game-winner to Scott Meushaw with three seconds remaining, as Navy came from six goals down to defeat UMBC, 11-10, before 1,445 at UMBC Stadium yesterday. The Midshipmen have now beaten the Retrievers 10 straight times.

A sore ankle did not prevent Mike Chanenchuk from delivering for the Maryland men's lacrosse team. The senior attackman's goal with two seconds left in the fourth quarter propelled the seventh-seeded Terps to an 8-7 win over Cornell in an NCAA tournament first-round game at Byrd Stadium on Saturday. That score gave Maryland its first lead of the game and was enough to help the team advance to a quarterfinal at Hofstra on Saturday; it will face the winner of Sunday night's first-round contest between Bryant and second-seeded Syracuse.

In his first MLL game since June 2012, Powell had four points -- including the tying goal on a diving effort with five seconds left -- to lead the Bayhawks to a 13-12 win, their first overtime victory in four tries this season.

Mike Chanenchuk and Niko Amato saved the Maryland men's lacrosse team from what might have been a devastating blow. Chanenchuk scored the game-winning goal with 13 seconds left in regulation, and Amato turned aside a last-second shot to propel the No. 6 Terps to an 8-7 victory over No. 14 Yale before an announced crowd of 3,052 at Byrd Stadium on Saturday. Maryland (9-2) has won 10 straight against the Bulldogs, but more importantly, the Terps avoided a loss that would have been their second in a row and third in the past five games - a stretch that would have damaged their resume for the NCAA tournament.
