The Nittany Lions (2-6) answered with two quick goals in less than 30 seconds for a 3-2 score before Loyola ended the first half with a 3-0 run taking a 7-3 lead at halftime.

Penn State came out fighting early in the second half, scoring three goals in less than three minutes to make it 7-6.

The teams exchanged goals before Penn State's Kristen Burke scored at 40:50 to tie the game at 8.

Neither team allowed a goal for nearly 14 minutes until Jaclyn Borrone added her second goal, unassisted, at 54:06 to put the Greyhounds back on top. Stephanie Walker scored two goals almost two minutes later to give the Greyhounds a 10-8 cushion.

Stephanie Curnoles then scored with 3:11 remaining to pull the Nittany Lions within one goal of Loyola for the third time, but they got not closer.

The Blazers took an early 3-2 lead after Banks scored twice and Still scored once. Gwynedd-Mercy rebounded by closing the half with three unanswered goals to take a 5-3 lead into the break.

Hood recovered to start the second half as Still tallied an unassisted goal and followed that with a free-position score with 21:36 remaining to tie the game at 5.

The Blazers trailed 7-6 midway through the second half, but the Griffins handled all the scoring from there on out.
