Colgate upends UMass

AMHERST, Mass. -- Colgate used four goals in the fourth quarter to upset Massachusetts, 13-11, Saturday in the opening round of the NCAA tournament.

UMass entered with a 15-0 record, and led, 10-9, after three quarters against the Raiders. But Colgate finished with three unanswered goals, and took its first lead with 7:12 left.

Peter Baum, the nation's leading scorer, Matt Baker, and Ryan Walsh each scored twice for Colgate (14-3).

The Minutemen stretched the lead to 7-2 thanks to three straight goals in the first half, but Colgate responded with a three-goal run of its own to close the half with just a 7-5 deficit.

The Raiders will face Duke in the NCAA quarterfinals in Philadelphia on May 20.

Loyola 17, Canisius 5

BALTIMORE -- Mike Sawyer scored five goals, and top-seeded Loyola never trailed in a 17-5 win over Canisius.

Eric Lusby added three goals, and Scott Ratliff scored twice for the Greyhounds (15-1), who will face the winner of Saturday night's Denver-North Carolina game in next Saturday's quarterfinal round at Navy.

Loyola, which won its first NCAA tournament game since 1998, pulled away from Canisius (6-8) with authority by scoring the first 13 goals of the second half. That turned a 4-3 halftime lead into a 17-3 advantage with 6:29 left in the game.

With his five goals, Sawyer increased his total to 50, tying him for the school's single-season record.

Sawyer, who scored all of his goals in the second half, got Loyola back on track after a frustrating second quarter by scoring three of the Greyhounds' first four goals of the second half, as Loyola opened up an 8-3 lead with 3:49 left in the third quarter.

Loyola took a 4-0 first-quarter lead, but Canisius rallied with a 3-0 run in the second quarter.
