WASHINGTON -- Attackmen Andrew Baird and Matt McBride scored unassisted goals in the final seven minutes to lead Georgetown to a 9-7 win against Navy yesterday. But it was midfielder Christiaan Trunz who powered the Hoyas to the opening-round victory in the NCAA Division I men's tournament. Stymied by Navy faceoff specialist William Wallace in the first quarter as the Midshipmen took a 3-0 lead, Trunz dug Georgetown out of the deficit by winning 11 of the game's final 15 faceoffs, as the fifth-seeded Hoyas outscored unseeded Navy 7-3 during the final two quarters.

The English king who defeated and hanged Scottish nationalist William Wallace in 1305 was incorrectly identified in an article in yesterday's Today section. It was King Edward.The Sun regrets the error.William Wallace glares into the east over Druid Lake, his imposing broadsword, six feet or more of it, hoisted. Memorialized in 13 feet of black iron and set upon a high stone plinth, he's the very picture of a knight ready to do battle again, 692 years after his death.This Sunday, though, he'll be hopelessly outnumbered.

Neither his eyes nor half his face are blue, his hair doesn't fall below his shoulders and he doesn't look anything like Mad Max.Nevertheless, that is a statue of Scottish patriot William Wallace lording over the western shore of Druid Lake -- the very same William Wallace portrayed by Hollywood heartthrob Mel Gibson in the film "Braveheart."Rising more than 25 feet, the statue has been greeting visitors to Druid Hill Park since 1893. Cast in bronze and modeled after a figure atop Abbey Craig in Sterling, Scotland, Sir William is clad in armor, shield at his side, holding a sword aloft.

A bronze Scottish warrior garbed in medieval battle armor has guarded the western bank of Druid Lake for nearly 100 years.The man frozen in metal is William Wallace, the Scottish patriot (1272?-1305) known as the "Hammer and Scourge of England." His drawn sword points toward the heavens. He looks off across the lake. His eyes just might be fixed on the Gothic tower of Baltimore City College.The statue will be rededicated at 11 a.m. Sunday by the St. Andrew's Society of Baltimore, the Kiltie Band of York and the Clan Wallace Society.

IF YOU'RE surprised that "Braveheart" is, now and forever, the official very best flick of 1995, it can mean only one thing.You haven't seen the movie.Like many of you, I had resisted the allure of actor/director/producer/face-painter Mel Gibson in kilts. After "Rob Roy," I figured I'd done the Scottish revolutionary genre to a farethewell.But then it's late into Oscar night and everything changes. Either I'm suffering from sleep deprivation or possibly cleavage overload or they're actually giving Oscars to Gibson as best director and "Braveheart" as best picture.

Epic! Huge! Sweeping! Did we mention epic?Mel Gibson's "Braveheart" is a stouthearted, old-fashioned hero movie in which honorable Scottish underdogs fight nasty British nobles. It lacks refinement, but it's a satisfying war story (and mediocre love story) in the grand Hollywood tradition.It's the late 13th century (several hundred years before the time of the more-focused "Rob Roy," this year's other Scottish tale). This retelling of the legend of freedom fighter William Wallace (Gibson)
