March 18, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Tim O'Shea scored a career-best six goals and added an assist as No. 7 Loyola routed visiting Fairfield, 18-6, yesterday at Curley Field.

O'Shea, a junior attackman, was one of four multiple-goal scorers for the Greyhounds (3-1), who won their second game in four days. Chris Georgalas scored four goals for the second straight game, and midfielders Myles Conway and Mike Battista each added two goals apiece.

"This game allowed us to play a lot of guys," Loyola coach Dave Cottle said. "Our depth continues to grow. This game will help us in April."

Loyola jumped out to a 3-0 lead before Fairfield (1-3) scored two goals in 1 1/2 minutes to cut its deficit to a goal midway through the first quarter.

O'Shea then scored on a high shot to the right corner 45 seconds later, starting a 14-1 run for the Greyhounds.

Loyola held the Stags scoreless for 25: 48, ending its spurt by converting on three straight extra-man opportunities for a 17-3 lead late in the fourth quarter.

Loyola dominated every category, holding an edge in shots (41-23), faceoffs (17 of 26) and ground balls (47-23).
