Quick Hits


Hornet Lacrosse Falls to Maritime, Husson

LYNDON CENTER -- The Lyndon State lacrosse team fell to 0-5 overall, and 0-3 in the North Atlantic Conference, with losses to Maine Maritime Academy and Husson University over the weekend. Both games were played at Lyndon Institute's Forrest Field North.

MAINE MARITIME 19, LYNDON 3: Nick Betti scored five goals, and teammate Bronson Guimond added four to lead the Mariners to victory on Sunday.

Corbet Munro had two goals for Lyndon and Robert Crupi had one. Tim Patten, Brett Lavigne and Colin Young were each credit with an assists in the contest.

Oscar Adams and James Wilgus combined to make 12 saves in the Mariners net while Matt Reynolds and James Strange had 23 saves for Lyndon.

HUSSON 22, LYNDON 4: Mitch Heaps poured in eight goals, and the foursome of Dustin Brett, Jack White, Dillon Shaw and Aaron Weinstein added to each to propel the Eagles to a win over the Hornets.

Patten scored three goals to lead Lyndon and Crupi added one off an assist from Patten. Reynolds and Strange had 32 saves for Lyndon.


HORNETS 5, GMC 4: In Poultney, a crucial second-flight doubles come-from-behind win was the difference maker in Lyndon's 5-4 victory over Green Mountain College Saturday.

GMC's Chris Donovan and Andrew O'Neill held a commanding 6-3 advantage, but were unable to close out a win as their opponents, Daniel Weiner and Chas Legge, clawed back to earn a tough 9-7 win.

Winning the third flight doubles match was the LSC duo of Weiner and Michael Desmond, who upended Chris Gaskin and Duong Vo.

Lyndon is scheduled to host Norwich today at 3:30 at the Dudley Bell Tennis Center.


Cards Slaughter California, Make Title Game

NEW ORLEANS -- Antonita Slaughter scored 18 points on six 3-pointers and Louisville clawed back from a 10-point halftime deficit to defeat California 64-57 on Sunday and advance to the NCAA championship game.

Bria Smith scored 17 on 6 of 7 shooting for the Cardinals (29-8), who were a No. 5 seed and became the first team seeded worse than fourth to win a Final Four game. They join Louisville's men's team in playing for a national championship. The men play Monday night and the women will face either Notre Dame or Connecticut on Tuesday night.

Layshia Clarendon scored 17 for Cal (32-4), which had won the Spokane Region as a second seed. Gennifer Brandon added 12 for the Golden Bears and Brittany Boyd added 10 points.


Forearm Surgery 'Very Likely' for Rob Gronkowski

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski "very likely" will require a fourth surgery on his left forearm, this one to remove the plate inserted in the arm in order to ensure an infection has been eradicated, sources told ESPN.

If another surgery is required, the estimate for a recovery would be about 10 weeks. Depending on when the surgery can be performed, which would be determined by whether the infection is completely eradicated, Gronkowski's availability for the start of next season could be affected.

Gronkowski was in California visiting friends recently, and when he woke up in the morning, his arm was swollen and he noticed some discharge. After he called the Patriots, the club quickly arranged for his cross-country return to Boston to address the issue. The timeliness was crucial to avoid any more serious complications.

Patriots spokesman Stacey James said Sunday the team doesn't expect to comment.

Gronkowski originally broke the arm Nov. 18 in a game against Indianapolis.


Sugarbush Chair Lift Mishap Strands 132

WARREN -- A broken chair lift Saturday at Sugarbush ski resort stranded more than 100 skiers who had to be evacuated from the lift.

A Sugarbush spokesman said the Heaven's Gate lift came to a halt Saturday afternoon due to a broken flange.

Patrick Brown said the Sugarbush ski patrol used a rope system to get rescue chairs up to skiers and lower people down one at a time.

The process took about two hours. Nobody was injured.

Brown said the stranded skiers will get a free day pass for their troubles.


Laird Ties Course Record With 63 To Win Texas Open

SAN ANTONIO -- Martin Laird tied the course record with a 9-under par 63 to hold off Rory McIlory to earn his first win in more than two years at the Texas Open.

Laird began Sunday four shots behind leader Billy Horschel, but posted a bogey-free round to finish 14 under overall and earn the third win of his career, his first since the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2011. The Scottish golfer entered the week having missed four of eight cuts this year.

McIlroy, the world's No. 2, began the day at 6 under before posting a 66 to finish two shots back and finish second -- his best finish of the year.

Horschel shot a 1-under 71 to finish in a tie for third with Jim Furyk and Charley Hoffman.
