  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Three different Loyola players scored two goals apiece as the Greyhounds built an 8-5 lead after three quarters and defeated Rutgers (3-5, 1-2 ECAC), 10-5, in men’s lacrosse action at Yurcak Field on Saturday afternoon.

    With on-and-off heavy rain and wind wreaking havoc, Loyola (4-3, 3-1 ECAC) was able to strike first when Matt Monfett scored an unassisted goal at the 7:40 mark of the first period. Rutgers counted with a goal from senior Jamie Lovejoy (Holbrook, NY) three minutes later, but the Greyhounds received another tally from Monfrett late in the first quarter (2:17) to take a 2-1 lead at the end of the opening stanza.

    Junior midfielder Devon Britts (Scottsville, VA) knotted the score at 2-2 when he took a pass from sophomore Matt Gaines (Abington, MD) at the 11:03 mark of the second quarter, but Loyola scored three consecutive goals over a three-minute span to take a 5-2 lead. The Scarlet Knights were able to cut the deficit to two, 5-3, on Lovejoy’s second goal of the game with just over two minutes to play in the first half.

    The Scarlet Knights and Greyhounds traded goals early in the third period, with freshman Nate Sanderson (Orangeville, Ontario) connecting on his 13th tally of the season, but Loyola’s Greg Leonard scored off a feed from Andrew Spack to make the score 7-4 with 9:37 remaining in the quarter.

    After Sean Battoni (Ringoes, NJ) scored to cut the gap to 7-5, Rutgers had a man-up opportunity and possession in its offensive zone in the final two minutes of the quarter, but the Scarlet Knights’ best scoring opportunity was snuffed out when a shot hit the post. In all, Rutgers had four shots that deflected off the post over the course of the game.

    Loyola’s fourth-quarter goals came from Leonard on a man-up opportunity and Jordan Rabidou. The Greyhounds held a 30-29 advantage in shots, and RU goalie Greg Havalchak (Corning, NY) made 11 saves. The Scarlet Knights also scooped up 35 ground balls and won eight-of-18 face-offs. Lovejoy (two goals) and Gaines (two assists) led Rutgers’ offensive effort.

    Rutgers returns to action on Saturday, April 9, when it hosts intra-state rival Princeton at 3:00 p.m. in Piscataway, NJ. The game will be broadcast live on CN8 television.
