The win is the Pioneers’ fifth straight and bring their overall record to 10-2 on the season, 5-0 in Eastern College Athletic Conference action.
“This was a really tough game and a great deal of the credit needs to go to Loyola, because they never gave up and battled against us right to the last second,” said head coach Bill Tierney. “I thought out team played an outstanding first half, and that Loyola played an outstanding second half. I’m proud of the way our team responded when it came time to head into overtime. Our whole team stepped up when we needed them to and that is a mark of a good team.”
Flint finished the day with four goals, his second straight four-goal game, while also finishing with three ground balls. Sophomores Eric Adamson (Anaheim Hills, Calif.) and Wesley Berg (Coquitlam, B.C.) both finished with two goals and two assists, while senior Eric Law (Centennial, Colo.) netted two goals.
Also scoring for Denver was freshman Gordie Koerber (Baltimore, Md.), senior Taylor Young (Littleton, Colo.) and sophomore Sean Cannizzaro (Cazenovia, N.Y.) with one goal each. Sophomore Garret Holst (Fishers, Ind.) recorded two assists, while senior Chase Carraro (Louisville, Ky.) finished with a season-high 16 ground balls and won a season-high 18-of 26 face-offs.
Sophomore goalie Ryan LaPlante (Fort Collins, Colo.) made a career-high 18 saves in his first complete game since the Pioneers fell to Penn State (02/17/13). LaPlante is now 7-1 on the season and has made 96 saves.
Loyola got on the board first to start the game, but the Pioneers answered with four straight goals from Young, Law Berg and Flint to end the first quarter up 4-1.
After the Greyhounds scored to open the second quarter, the Pioneers scored two straight as Flint and Berg both netted their second goals of the game to put DU up 6-2. Loyola answer with a goal from Davis Butts with 5:25 left in the second quarter, before Denver closed out the half with a goal from Flint, his third, and a goal from Law with five seconds remaining. The Pioneers took an 8-3 lead heading into the break.
After over 10 minutes of scoreless action to open the third quarter, Loyola score with 4:22 remaining as Mike Sawyer and scored off a pass from Justin Ward. Denver answered 21 seconds later as Cannizzaro scored his third goal of the season to put DU up 9-4. Loyola scored the final three goals of the quarter to cut into the Pioneers’ lead, 9-7.
Adamson and Koerber both scored within a minute of each other to open the fourth quarter and give DU an 11-7 lead. However, Loyola scored two more minutes later to make it 11-9 with 9:20 left to play. Adamson scored his 20th of the season with 8:40 left to play to give the Pioneers a three-goal cushion, but the Greyhounds scored three straight to tie the game at 12-12 as the final minutes ticked off the clock to force the game into overtime.

NCAA Lacrosse: Video Highlights Of #6 Loyola Men’s Lacrosse 13-7 Win Over Fairfield On April 6

Loyola University Maryland defensive midfielders Scott Ratliff and Josh Hawkins combined to score six goals on as many shots, and Pat Laconi added an assist, as the Greyhounds’ defensive midfield was in on almost half of their goals during a 13-7 victory Saturday afternoon over visiting Fairfield University in ECAC Lacrosse League action at Ridley Athletic Complex.

Ratliff, a long-stick midfielder, scored four, and Hawkins added two for Loyola (9-2 overall, 5-0 ECAC), which clinched a bid to the 2013 ECAC Championships that will be played May 2-4 at Hobart College in Geneva, N.Y. Ratliff also had four caused turnovers and three ground balls, and Hawkins tallied a pair off the ground and caused one Stags turnover.

Fairfield (6-5, 3-2) took an early 1-0 lead as Marshall Johnson scored on a seven-yard shot from the top at 10:32 in the first quarter, but less than two minutes later, an extra-man goal by Loyola would start a 5-0 Greyhounds run.

A Stags push gave Loyola a man advanatage, and Harry Kutner fed Kevin Ryan who hit an over-the-shoulder shot from just in front of the crease to tie the game at 1-1 with 8:44 on the first-quarter clock.

Ratliff then picked up the ground ball on the next faceoff, and he struck with a 12-yard shot from the top of the box to give Loyola its first lead, 2-1, just nine second after Ryan’s goal.

Chris Layne scored the Greyhounds’ third goal, taking a flip from Davis Butts and running left-to-right past his defender to score at 6:27. Justin Ward then scored his first of two-straight at 3:11 with a sidearm shot from just outside the crease.

Ohio State Men's Lacrosse vs Loyola

Despite a career-high tying 14 saves from junior goalie Greg Dutton, the No. 12/13-ranked Ohio State men’s lacrosse team fell to No. 5 Loyola, 9-4, Saturday in front of 1,877 fans in Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The Buckeyes fall to 6-3 on the year (1-2 ECAC), while the Greyhounds improve to 8-2 (4-0 ECAC).
“Loyola is an excellent team and did an outstanding job,” Nick Myers, Ohio State head coach, said. “Defensively, we played our scheme and Greg did a great job in goal for us. Offensively, we have to find our identity. It was a 3-3 game and I thought we were doing some positive things, then we threw the ball away several times before the half and gave them some a couple goals that way. We have to find the balance between generating quality shots and not being so reckless with the ball.”
Ohio State returns to action at noon Saturday when it hosts Hobart in an ECAC game in Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium televised by BTN.
