May 15, 2012|By Nelson Coffin

Only Mother Nature was able to slow down No. 2 Loyola against No. 3 Gilman in the second game of a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference semifinal doubleheader Tuesday night at Johnny Unitas Stadium.

With 6:57 remaining in the fourth quarter, the game was halted due to lightning with the Dons holding a 13-5 advantage.

The game will be picked up from that point on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. at Johnny Unitas Stadium.

Before the delay, Loyola’s seniors accounted for nine goals in a 10-0 opening run helping their quest to return to the final and face archrival Calvert Hall on Friday.  Calvert Hall defeated Boys’ Latin 11-10 in the other semifinal.

For the Dons, attackmen Alec Dauses and Austin Stewart and midfielder T.J. Neubauer scored two goals each while midfielders Mike Distler, Deemer Class and Kevin O’Toole and defenseman Luke Morrison notched single goals to begin the onslaught.

The senior scoring parade continued for the Dons in the third quarter as Neubauer and Distler found the net.

Gilman finally broke through early in the third quarter on the first of two goals by junior midfielder Riley DeSmit before senior midfielder Harrison McCarthy followed suit.

Junior attackman Max Greene and sophomore midfielder William McBride added goals for the Greyhounds.
