Butler pulls fast one on Loyola, 7-6

April 14, 2002|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

INDIANAPOLIS - Rich Pavlick capped a four-goal Butler run by collecting a rebound and shoving the ball past Loyola goalie Mark Bloomquist with 1:46 left yesterday to give the Bulldogs a dramatic 7-6 victory over the sixth-ranked Greyhounds at the Butler Bowl.

It was the first-ever victory over a top 10 team for the Bulldogs, who trailed 6-3 with 12:46 left in the game after Loyola's Michael Sullivan scored his game-high third goal.

Tim O'Shea scored an extra-man goal two minutes later to pull Butler (4-5) within 6-4, and Pavlick scored less than a minute after that to cut the lead to one.

Butler then tied the game at 6 with 4:44 left when Adam Cichostepski found Kyle Tietjen in front.

Loyola (7-2) had possession for much of the last 1:30, but was unable to get a clean shot on Butler goalie Brendan Winkler, who made 16 saves.

Junior Joey Case had the last opportunity, but his shot from the left side was wide right.

Loyola 1 3 1 1 - 6

Butler 1 1 1 4 - 7

Goals: L-Sullivan 3, Brundage, Sinisgalli, Fink; B-Pavlick 3, Ruccia, O'Shea, Tietjen, O'Toole. Assists: L-Sullivan, Brundge, Roy; B-Cichostepski 2, Tietjen, Ward, O'Toole. Saves: L-Bloomquist 17; B-Winkler 16.
