Virginia coach hits milestone in opener

Virginia opened its men's lacrosse season on Saturday with a road victory and a milestone.

The No. 2 Cavaliers' 11-8 win at Drexel was Coach Dom Starsia's 200th of his career at Virginia; this season is his 18th since leaving Brown after the 1992 campaign.

He's just the second college lacrosse coach to win 100 games at one school and 200 at another, joining Georgetown's Dave Urick. And Starsia is the only coach to do it at two Division I schools.

Drexel surged to a 4-1 lead in the first quarter. In the fourth, Steele Stanwick scored all three of his goals to put the game away for Virginia. . . .

Sixth-ranked Maryland opened its season with a 12-7 win over Bellarmine in Louisville. Bellarmine scored the first quarter's only goal. But the Terps answered with three goals in the second period and never trailed again. Junior attack Grant Catalino scored two goals and assisted on four others for the Terps. . . .

Navy lost to No. 16 Loyola in overtime, 8-7, when Cooper MacDonnell scored his sixth goal of the game with nine seconds left. Senior Patrick Moran had his second straight hat trick for Navy.


Ian Poulter is in the final of the Match Play Championship for the first time after beating Sergio GarcĂ­a. He has to wait until Sunday to find out who he'll play.

Paul Casey and Camilo Villegas played 23 holes of their semifinal match until they could no longer continue because of darkness in Marana, Ariz. The match appeared to be over until Villegas missed a three-foot par putt for the victory. They will return Sunday to determine a winner. . . .

Joe Durant remained in position for his first PGA Tour win since 2006, birdieing the final two holes Saturday for 2-under 69 and a two-stroke lead in the Mayakoba Golf Classic. . . .

Tommy Armour III and Tim Simpson were tied for the lead at 13 under after the second round of the Allianz Championship. . . .
