BALTIMORE — Eighth ranked Loyola Maryland is one of the nation’s top teams, and proved just that in Friday afternoon’s 15-6 Patriot League semifinal win over against Boston University.
The Terriers (10-8, 5-4 Patriot League) could not contain a potent Greyhound (14-3, 9-0) attack which ripped off an 8-0 run spanning from 15:05 to 5:23 remaining in the first half to put the game out of reach.
Senior Caroline English, sophomore Lexi Lewis and freshman Ryann Gaffney scored two goals apiece for the Terriers.
Gaffney scored the game’s first goal on a free-position score less than two minutes into the contest. Lewis scored a goal to tie it up at two just over six minutes in before Loyola went on its run.
The Terriers fell 18-11 in the team’s regular season matchup on March 31 at Nickerson Field in Boston.
BU ends the season winning seven of nine games.
