CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - For the second week in a row, and third time this season, Loyola University Maryland's Grant Limone was named the Corvias Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Week.
Limone made 17 saves on just 23 shots on goal Saturday as the Greyhounds defeated Boston University, 8-6, in conference action. Earlier in the week, the freshman made 13 saves at then-No. 3 University of Maryland to finish with 30 overall for the week.
In the two games, Limone had a .638 saves percentage and 8.50 goals against average against the team that is now ranked second in the nation and a squad that entered Saturday second in the Patriot League in goals per game.
Limone made six saves in the fourth quarter Saturday on the Terriers' home field, yielding only one goal in the period as Boston University took 15 shots. He also had three ground balls and a caused turnover in the Patriot League contest.
His 17 saves were one off his career-best of 18 set on March 14 at the U.S. Military Academy, a game after which he was honored with the League's weekly award, as well.
Overall this season, Limone has a .551 saves percentage and 9.72 goals against average in 11 games. He has started each of the last nine for the Greyhounds.
Against Patriot League opponents, he is tops in the conference in save percentage (.583) and second in goals against average (8.23).
Loyola wraps up its 2015 regular-season schedule on Friday, April 17, with a 7 o'clock game at Bucknell University.
