Planning finished with six goals and an assist, and goalie Tom Carey made 15 saves.

Albany 19, No. 8 seed Cornell 10: Goalie Blaze Riorden energized the Great Danes (16-2) when he went end to end and scored the last goal of the third quarter with four seconds left.

Riorden also had 19 saves. His goal was the second of his career and first with a goalie's stick.

"Very pleased with our effort, a complete effort from start to finish," said Albany coach Scott Marr, who will lead the Great Danes into the quarterfinal round for the third time and second consecutive season. "They stayed composed early after being down 2-0, and Blaze's goal was a big momentum swing."

Albany's Lyle Thompson had three goals and six assists, the last coming with 5:27 to play to tie an NCAA career record with 221. The Great Danes' 19 goals tied for the most the Big Red (10-6) has allowed in an NCAA tournament game since 1974, when Maryland also earned a 19-10 win.

Cornell's loss ended a 20-game winning streak against America East opponents.

Albany scored 11 consecutive goals, including the first six of the second quarter, and the Big Red never was able to recover from a stretch of 26:30 without a goal. The Great Danes built an 11-2 lead before the half and led by eight at the break.

CCBC-Essex 17, Nassau 16: The Lions (13-1) managed to get a shot off during their final possession with 15 seconds left, but the potential game-tying goal was turned away by Max Edelman as time expired, and the host Knights (15-2) advanced to the National Junior College Athletic Association championship.

CCBC-Essex hosts defending champion Onondaga today at 1 p.m.

Edelman finished with 12 saves and Will Manganiello had a game-high six goals for the Knights. 1/2 minutes of the third quarter for a 12-9 advantage.
