Boys' Latin handed Loyola, the No. 1 lacrosse team in The Evening Sun rankings, its first loss of the season yesterday, as the Lakers held on for a 7-6 victory over the defending Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference champions.
Loyola, which dropped to 3-1 in the conference and overall, trailed 6-4 and 7-5 in the second half in suffering its first loss to Boys' Latin in three years.
"The last time we beat them was in 1988, in the [A Conference] championship game," Boys' Latin coach Bob Shriver said. "Loyola is so doggone aggressive and they force you into so many mistakes, but I guess we did a little of the same today."
