Without a winning season in three years under head coach Chris Norris following the retirement of longtime coach Al Albert, William & Mary has enjoyed a breakout start to the 2008 season.

The Tribe's 3-2 over Campbell on Tuesday night improved its record to 4-0-2 -- its best start since 1994.

Thomas Price's golden goal in the 103rd minute lifted William & Mary past the Camels to cap a wild finish.
 
Khalil Johnson gave Campbell the lead in the 84th minute, but the Tribe equalized less than three minutes later on 6-foot-6 Nathan Belcher's header off Nathaniel Baako's pass.

Belcher, a senior, made the first start of his career only a week ago. On Saturday, he scored the winning goal in a 2-1 victory over Elon.

William & Mary has not made the NCAA Tournament since 2002. In a period of 23 years from 1980 to 2002, the Tribe reached the NCAA Tournament 12 times.

TERPS STRIKE QUICKLY. No. 3 Maryland tuned up for Friday's showdown with No. 1 Wake Forest by winning its fifth game in a row with a 4-0 victory over American on Tuesday night.

The Terrapins scored early for the third straight game when freshman Casey Townsend scored in the third and fourth minutes.

Two other freshmen make big contributions. Matt Kassel picked up his team-high fifth assist of the season on Omar Gonzalez's goal, and Matt Oduaran closed out the scoring in the 29th minute when he registered his first career goal.

Freshman goalie Zac MacMath won his second game.

ANOTHER TCHANI DOUBLE. Move over Chris Agorsor. Tony Tchani is stealing some of the thunder from Agorsor, his Virginia teammate considered the top freshman in this fall's incoming class.

Tchani had two goals and an assist for the second game in a row as the Cavaliers trounced visiting Central Connecticut State Tuesday night at Kloeckner Stadium/
 
"We are getting more comfortable finishing our chances," Virginia head coach George Gelnovatch said. "It helps us manage the game and good things happen."

Tchani leads the Cavs with seven goals, one more than Agorsor.

BEARS CLAW BC. Senior Rhett Bernstein scored on a loose ball inside the 18-yard box to lead Brown past No. 15 Boston College, 1-0.
 
Boston College had a 20-9 advantage in shots, yet totaled three shots on Brown sophomore goalkeeper Paul Grandstrand. Eight shots were blocked by the Bear defense before reaching the goal and a ninth caromed off the post and out of bounds.

NAIA PERFORMANCE. One of the best performances of the season at any level was put in by Joel Trainer of NAIA school Indiana Wesleyan last weekend in Alabama.  He was instrumental in the Wildcats' 6-2 upset win over then-No. 1 Auburn Montgomery, scoring three goals and adding an assist.  He then followed that performance with another goal in a 2-1 victory over Mobile.
