Faceoff specialist Jake Hervada won the opening draw and scored just six seconds into the game to set the tone as Delaware (5-8, 2-1 Colonial Athletic Association) earned a 10-7 upset victory over No. 6 Towson (10-2, 2-1).
The Blue Hens, led by Paul Major with four goals, opened with a 3-0 run and never trailed. Ryan Drenner (Westminster) scored twice for the host Tigers.
Navy 11, Army 10: Casey Rees (Boys' Latin) used a fake flip to get his hands free and scored the game-winner 38 seconds into overtime to lead the No. 10 Navy men's lacrosse team to an 11-10 victory over archrival No. 20 Army West Point on Saturday.
The visiting Midshipmen (9-2, 7-1 Patriot League) have won seven games in a row for the first time since opening the 2007 season 8-0. The Black Knights fell to 8-4 and 5-2.
The win marked the Mids' second straight Star Game victory and assured Navy at least a share of the Patriot League regular-season title and the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament the week of April 25.
"It was a great battle," Navy coach Rick Sowell said."It felt like we were playing uphill for most of the game.I think we played more defense today than we have in the last two games combined. But a lot of credit goes to our guys for hanging in there and stepping up."
The teams traded goals over the opening quarter before Navy went on a 3-0 run and opened its biggest lead of the game at 4-2 with 9:39 remaining in the opening half.
Vermont 14, UMBC 10: Nate Lewnes (St. Mary's) had three goals, but the visiting Retrievers (3-8, 0-4 America East Conference) fell to the Catamounts (6-7, 2-2).

Stevenson's 4-1 first-quarter lead vanished when Albright went on a 3-0 run to open the second quarter. Matt Tompkins scored back-to-back goals with 7:09 and 4:53 left in the half to help Stevenson gain a 7-5 lead.
No. 1 Maryland 15, No. 8 Ohio State 5: Taylor Cummings (McDonogh) had five goals and two assists to power the host Terps (14-0, 3-0 Big Ten Conference) past the Buckeyes (11-2, 2-1).
