LANCASTER, Pa. — The outcome of Goucher's match against Lancaster Bible wasn't settled by the time four sets had been completed, so there was a need for a fifth set.

TOWSON, Md. — Goucher had St. Mary's (Md.) on the ropes in the first two sets of tonight's match in the Decker Sports & Recreation Center, but the Gophers will have to wait until at least next year to get another crack at ending the long winning streak the Seahawks enjoy in the series between the two in-state rivals.
