Big second half powers Hounds past BU

Make it three wins in a row for the surging Loyola Greyhounds women’s lacrosse team. On Saturday the Greyhounds trailed in the second half for the first time since joining the Patriot League, but they powered through to earn a 16-11 victory to remain unbeaten against their conferences’ opponents.

Loyola trailed 8-3 at halftime, but a quick six-goal run in the first nine minutes of the second half turned into a 10-1 run that gave them a pretty comfortable lead heading down the final stretch of the game.

Seven Greyhounds scored goals in the game while five had multi-goal games and three had hat tricks or more. Cami Whiteford led the offensive effort with four goals while Frankie Kamely and Sabrina Tabasso each had hat tricks. In goal, Kady Glynn made 12 saves to aid in the comeback.

Loyola scored the first two goals of the game as Whiteford and Kamely gave them their 2-0 lead just a second more than seven minutes into the game. However, the Terrier scored just 43 seconds after Kamely and rattled off four straight scores to take the 4-2 lead. Margaret Filippelli ended the run with a free position goal, but Boston U responded with four more goals in a row to end the first half with an 8-3 lead.

Loyola quickly figured things out in the second half and over the first eight and a half minutes they scored six goals in a row to get back ahead at 9-8. Taylor VanThof opened the second half with a goal before Whiteford scored her second free position goal and Tabasso netted back-to-back scored. Hannah Savage and Emily Clark also followed with free position goals.

Boston U was able to retie the game when Jayne Elisabeth scored on a feed from Taylor Hardison with 19:38 left in the game, but Tabasso completed her hat trick just 35 seconds later off a feed from Hannah Powers. Clark and Kamely then followed with free position goals and Filippelli scored her second of the game to make it an overall 10-1 run to put the Greyhounds ahead 13-9 with 9:09 left.

Boston U was able to get back on the board and ended the run, but there were only six minutes remaining in the game by that point. The Terrier had no room for error and the Greyhounds took advantage of three of them to continue scoring. Loyola scored three of the final four goals of the game.

Loyola held a 40-33 shot advantage and a dominant 21-6 lead on draws. They also had seven free position goals while the Terriers were just 1-for-3 on free position shots.

The Hounds will look to keep their momentum going on Wednesday when they make a trip down I-95 to play American. They will return home on Saturday to host Colgate at noon as part of a men’s and women’s lacrosse doubleheader.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
