The two squads battled it out in the second half with Loyola scoring six goals to Delaware's 5. Shacklock got her third goal of the day barely two minutes into the half, against assisted by Shuck before Shannon Kron scored for the Blue Hens for a 6-4 score.

LAST TIME VS. HOFSTRA
No. 1 Loyola started the game with a six goal scoring run before Hofstra tallied their lone goal of the first half. Sophomore Talia Shacklock started things off for the Greyhounds with a goal at 6:33 off a feed from Rachel Shuck. Korrow added her first goal exactly two minutes later when she beat her defender and found a wide open shot at the goal. Eyler nabbed her first goal at 13:35 when Shuck gave her a pass from behind the net. Freshman Sydney Greene made the score 4-0 after she dropped the ball just outside the goal but scrambled to pick it back up, turn around and find the open net at 14:12. Eyler added two more goals, one off a free-position and unassisted for the 6-0 lead.
Kathleen Mikowski scored Hofstra's first goal of the game at 23:45 by converting the free position after a foul on Loyola's Marianne Gioffre. But Loyola would close out the second half with three more goals, an unassisted from Shacklock and two from Stephanie Walker, both assisted by Shuck.
Hofstra tried their best to come back in the second half, outscoring the Greyhounds 7-5 but it was not enough to get within grasp of the No. 1 Loyola squad. Becky Thorn and Caitlin Connolly each scored two goals in the second half and Mikowski, Heather Albro and Melissa Hedrick each added one.
Korrow scored three of her four goals in the second period to keep Loyola ahead. Eyler added her fourth in the opening minutes of play. Jen Schuerholz also added a free-position goal for the Greyhounds.
