The No. 4 Loyola men's lacrosse team scored four goals in the first 1: 59 of the third quarter to break away from a halftime tie and roll to a 21-10 victory over visiting Massachusetts yesterday.

Tim Goettelmann and Gavin Prout each scored four goals for Loyola (8-1), and the 21 goals were the highest total of the season for the Greyhounds, who rebounded from a 16-9 loss to Syracuse last weekend.

UMass (4-5) rallied from an early 2-0 deficit to knot the game at 2-2 on goals by John Madigan and Jeremy Guski. The teams traded goals in the second quarter, before the Minutemen went up 5-4 on a score by Kevin Levielle.

Loyola's David Fields scooped up a loose ball from a scrum in front of the cage and fired a behind-the-head shot to tie the score at 5 at the break.

Loyola won the opening faceoff of the second half and Peter Haas raced straight to goal, scoring just eight seconds into the quarter. Goettelmann, the Greyhounds' leading scorer, found the net just 33 seconds later, putting Loyola up 7-5.

After two more goals, UMass rallied to score two straight and pull within 9-7, but the Minutemen would not get any closer.

The Greyhounds scored four more goals in the third and took a commanding 13-8 lead. Seven unanswered goals to open the fourth put the game out of reach.
