1111small NCAA TOURNAMENT: Small-college powers flex muscles

NCAA DIVISION II MEN: Defending champion Dowling and top-ranked Northern Kentucky both moved into the quarterfinals with a pair of wins over the weekend.

Dowling's international collection of talent was too much for NYIT as the Golden Lions won the Northeast title, 4-0, with goals from Senegalese Ahmadoul Gaye, the ECC Offensive Player of the Year, Norwegian Thomas Vaaland, the ECC Defender of the Year, Junior Laurencin of St. Lucia and Swede Marcus Come.

Fifth-year senior Chris Thompson scored the game's only goal as Northern Kentucky defeated SIU-Edwardsville, 1-0, to win their second straight Great Lakes regional championship.


NCAA DIVISION III MEN: Texas (Trinity) and Loras, the only unbeaten teams in the NCAA Division III Men's Tournament advanced to the round of 16 with wins over the weekend.

Trinity improved to 20-0-0 with a 4-0 win over Principia, while Loras is 21-0-1 after beating perennial D3 power Wheaton (Ill.), 1-0.


NCAA DIVISION II WOMEN: No. 1 Grand Valley State got a scare in the second round of the NCAA Division II Women's Tournament but beat Mercyhurst, 3-0, in a shootout after their game ended in a 1-1 tie.

Kristina Nasturzio stopped a season-high five shots through 110 minutes of action and then denied Mercyhurst's Sarah Powell in the first round of the shootout to set the tone foe the Lakers, who converted all three attempt.


NCAA DIVISION III WOMEN: Powerhouses Wheaton (Ill.) and the College of New Jersey both flexed their muscles in the NCAA Division III Women's Tournament with big wins.

Wheaton is now 23-0-0 on the year and has won 41 consecutive matches after its 7-1 win over St. Scholastica Saturday at Joe Bean Stadium.

Diana DiBruno became TCNJ's all-time career leader with a goal and two assists Saturday in the Lions' 7-0 win over Farmingdale State. Their 2-0 win over Eastern on Sunday improved their record to 19-0-1.
