Georgetown owns a 29-6 advantage in this series, but Loyola is enjoying a five-game winning streak. The No. 15 Greyhounds (5-2) have won three of the last four contests, including Saturday's 13-7 victory over Air Force at the Whitman Sampler Mile High Classic in Denver. Senior attackman Mike Sawyer is questionable, but freshman Zach Herreweyers scored three goals in Sawyer's place against the Falcons. The Hoyas (3-3) snapped a two-game losing skid with a 16-8 rout of previously undefeated Providence last Saturday.

Junior attackman Davey Emala's decision to transfer to North Carolina from Georgetown could be interpreted as a massive blow to the program. Or a chance for junior Jason McFadden. Hoyas coach Dave Urick said Wednesday that the Bel Air native and Calvert Hall graduate is poised to join juniors Travis Comeau and Zac Guy as starters in Friday night's season opener against No. 8 Maryland. “When the window shuts for one guy, the door opens up for somebody else,” Urick said.

Late in the fourth quarter of Mount St. Mary's' eventual 10-4 loss to Georgetown on Wednesday, goalkeeper Chris Klaiber was trying to initiate a clear, but was under heavy duress by a Hoyas player. Junior defenseman Kyle O'Brien took it upon himself to take out the player, which drew a one-minute penalty for slashing but also earned Klaiber's thanks. One might say that Klaiber warranted some assistance after the senior made a game-high 20 saves for the Mountaineers (0-2). Thirteen of those stops occurred in the first half.

But the Hoyas have fallen on difficult times, going five years without a tournament berth and ushering the dismissal of former coach Dave Urick. The task of turning the program around has been entrusted to former Maryland defensive coordinator Kevin Warne, who was part of the brain trust that guided the Terps to back-to-back national title games in 2011 and 2012.

One-score decisions continue to be unkind to the Navy men's lacrosse team. For the second time in as many contests, the Midshipmen squandered an opportunity to cement a victory in the final 30 seconds. On Sunday, that missed chance opened the door for host Georgetown to emerge with a 9-8 win in overtime before an announced attendance of 2,613 at Multi-Sport Field in Washington. Junior attackman Jeff Fountain , a Lutherville native and St. Paul's graduate, took a feed from redshirt junior midfielder Zac Guy, curled around the left post and deposited the ball behind senior goalkeeper Nolan Hickey to even the Hoyas' record at 1-1.

WASHINGTON  - Nikko Pontrello picked a good time to wake up from his mini-slumber. After being shut out in the first half, the junior attackman scored three goals in the final two quarters, including the game-winner with 51.4 seconds left to propel the No. 2 Loyola men's lacrosse team to a 10-9 victory over host Georgetown at Multi-Sport Field.
