Box Score

BALTIMORE, MD - The Loyola women's lacrosse team overcame a 6-4 halftime score with seven straight goals in second half for a 12-7 win over No. 13 Boston Friday afternoon on Diane Geppi-Aikens Field. The No. 6 Greyhounds improve to 6-1 with the win while the Terriers fall to 2-1.

Boston's Alyssa Trudel opened scoring Friday with her unassisted goal just under two minutes into the contest. Loyola's Jaclyn Borrone answered back for Loyola when she broke away from her defender and went straight at the cage for a 1-1 score. Rachel Shuck got the Greyhounds up 2-1 with her unassisted goal 4:23 into the game. Sydney Greene went coast to coast with her goal at 10:54, beating everyone down the field and taking the goalie one-on-one for a 3-1 LC advantage. Kate McHarg finished off the Greyhound run with a goal off a pass from Shuck at 11:34 into the game for the 4-1 Loyola score.

Boston then went on a five goal run over the next 15 minutes to take a 6-4 halftime lead. Trudel had three of the five while Angie Martin had two. Three of Boston's goals in that run came off free-position attempts.

The second half was a different story, Loyola went on a seven goal run and stifled the Terriers offense. Borrone started the run with a free-position goal 33:45 into the game. Greene got her second goal of the day and tied the score at six 35:43 into the contest. Talia Shacklock put Loyola up 7-6 when she curled around from behind the net and beat the goalie one-on-one. Shuck ran virtually the same play the next time down for an 8-6 score 44:31 into the game. Shuck's goal would be the eventual game winner. The Greyhounds scored their last three goals of the run off free-positions; two by Stephanie Walker and one from Shacklock.

BU's Lindsay Lewis finally got the Terriers on the board in the second half with her goal with just under three minutes remaining in the game. Senior defender Tara Singleton scored the final goal of the game when she went from end to end with just 28 seconds remaining in the game.

Loyola's keeper's Kim Lawton and Cindy Nicolaus combined for 13 saves; five by Lawton and eight for Nicolaus. Boston's Anne Sheridan made six stops in goal.

The Greyhounds host local rival Towson on Sunday, March 21 at 1:00.
