Cryder DiPietro scored a game-high three goals as fifth-ranked and host St. Paul's handed the top-ranked Loyola boys lacrosse team its second loss of the week in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game yesterday.

DiPietro scored the eventual game-winning goal with 2:52 left in regulation to give the Crusaders (12-1, 3-1) an 8-5 lead.

The Dons, however, came back and scored two quick goals, the last coming from Mike Kimmel with 1:05 remaining to cut the lead to 8-7, and that's the way it ended.

Chris Kunhardt had a solid game in goal for St. Paul's, finishing with 17 saves.

"They're a good team and I really felt we had them a little off balance. Our defense played very well, especially with Chris in goal," Crusaders coach Rick Brocato said.
