A pair of Molly Hart goals led the way for Frostburg State (8-6, 2-4).

Men's lacrosse team rolls: In men's lacrosse action, when Wesley's Nate Gemmato opened the game's scoring Wednesday, it quickly lit a fire under the Spartans in their 13-6 win at home.

York (8-5, 4-1 CAC) scored eight of the game's next 10 goals, including six unanswered.

Softball squad splits with Messiah: York College did its damage early in a 3-1 softball win against Messiah in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader hosted by the Spartans.

An Ashley Lechner RBI single in the bottom of the first inning was followed by a Carleigh Ruleman two-run homer down the left-field line in the next at bat. That outburst gave the Spartans (18-10) all the offense they would need. Courtney Martin (13-8) pitched a complete-game seven-hitter to get the win.

The Falcons Becky Note went 1-for-3 and drove in Messiah's lone run. The Falcons fell to 16-7.

York was limited to only six hits by Messiah's Claressa Mees in a 3-0 loss in the opener. Jayci Cristaudo collected two of the Spartans' hits. Melissa Jurkiewicz (5-2) took the loss despite pitching a complete game and giving up just two earned runs.
