Men's Lacrosse Welcomes Quinnipiac, Hosts Bobcats This Saturday

March 31, 2004

Baltimore, Md. - The Loyola men's lacrosse team looks to bounce back from a disappointing loss at Brown last weekend when it hosts Quinnnipiac at Geppi-Aikens Field this Saturday. The Greyhounds and Bobcats face-off at 1 p.m. and all the action can be heard live right here with Live Audio .

The 'Hounds bring a 2-3 overall record and a No. 18 national ranking into the contest. All five of Loyola's games this season have been against ranked opponents and other than Quinnipiac, the remainder of the schedule could very well be against ranked teams too.

Senior Stephen Brundage leads the team in scoring with seven goals and five assists while freshman Andrew Spack, who picked up a season-best eight groundballs at Brown, leads Loyola with 27 groundballs this season.

The Greyhounds are getting their shots off and 65 percent of their shot opportunities have been on goal. In fact, Loyola has 12 more shots-on-goal that its opponents, but has failed to convert its shot and extra-man opportunities into goals. The 'Hounds are 2-0 when scoring 10 or more goals and 0-3 when failing to reach the 10-goal mark.

Quinnipiac enters at 1-6 after Tuesday night's 9-3 loss to Harvard. Sophomore Mike Stottler leads the Bobcats this season with nine goals in seven games.

Saturday's game is one of five home games left on Loyola's schedule. The Greyhounds and Bobcats can also be heard live on WNST AM 1570 beginning at 1 p.m.
