DIII -- Mustangs Defeat Sea Gulls To Become CAC Champions
Congratulations to head coach Paul Cantabene and the Stevenson University Mustangs for their 10-6 win over top-ranked Salisbury Sea Gulls to win the CAC championship.
Since joining the Capital Athletic Conference three years ago, the Mustangs men's lacrosse team becomes the first sport at Stevenson to win a conference championship. For the first time in the 16-year history of the CAC men’s lacrosse championship, there is a new champion.
The third time proved to be the charm since the Mustangs (16-1) lost the last two-straight CAC championship games against the Sea Gulls in 2008 and 2009. Stevenson has also won three of the last five meetings with Salisbury, including the last two at Sea Gull Stadium after the team snapped the Sea Gulls' 105-game CAC unbeaten streak with a 12-8 victory Apr. 4, 2009.
Stevenson goalie Geoff Hebert had a big day, totaling 13 saves while eight different Mustangs managed to get the ball in the net.
DI -- Navy Stuns Johns Hopkins
The Navy Midshipmen did what they have been unable to do since 1974 -- beat the No. 17 Johns Hopkins Blue Jays. In front of a crowd of 10,000, Navy overcame an early 4-0 deficit en route to the thrilling overtime victory.
Junior attackman Andy Warner scored his only goal of the game with 10 seconds remaining in overtime to lift host Navy to a 9-8 victory over visiting Johns Hopkins at Navy Marine Corps Stadium Saturday afternoon.
The win snaps a 36-game losing streak for the Midshipmen against the Blue Jays that dated to 1974 and improves Navy’s record to 6-7 on the year. Johns Hopkins dropped its second straight and falls to 5-7.
High School -- Loyola Upsets Boys’ Latin 7-6
The Dons delivered the Lakers their first MIAA loss this season as Loyola won 7-6 over Boys’ Latin.
Loyola’s Seth Krolus scored what ended up being the game-winning goal late in the third quarter. The leading scorers for both teams were Adam Smith for Loyola, who had two goals and an assist, and Wells Stanwick for Boys' Latin who had a hat trick.
With the win over the Lakers, the Dons improve their record to 5-3 in the MIAA while Boys’ Latin falls to 11-2 in the conference.
