Loyola completes win against Gilman

May 16, 2012|By Nelson Coffin

A day after Loyola's bid to secure a berth in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship was interrupted by lightning Tuesday night at Johnny Unitas Stadium, the No. 2 Dons finished the job with a 13-7 victory over No. 3 Gilman on Wednesday afternoon at the same site.

Leading, 13-5, with 6:57 left in the fourth quarter when play was stopped on Tuesday, all Loyola (15-3) had to do was play keep-away against the inspired Greyhounds (12-4) to advance to the conference final against archrival No. 1 Calvert Hall (15-2) for the first time since 1989.
The final is Friday at 8 p.m. Unitas Stadium.

Meanwhile, Gilman, which had a man-advantage for the first two minutes after play resumed, did everything it could — including playing junior midfielder Jack King in the goal and calling for a stick check on a Loyola player — to derail the Dons.

Despite their best effort, the Greyhounds could only produce a pair of goals by junior attackman Max Greene to make the score more respectable.

Goals: G-DeSmit 2, McCarthy 1, Greene 3, W. McBride 1; L-Neubauer 3, Dauses 2, Stewart 2, Distler 2, Class 2, O’Toole 1, Morrison 1.
Assists: G-McCarthy 1, DeSmit 1, Matthai 1; L-Clise 2, McNamara 1, Dalton 2, Class 1, Dauses 1, Hardwick 1, Neubauer 1.
Saves: G-T. McBride 2, Moore 2, King 1; L-Thomas 10.
Half: L, 10-0
