Hounds Lacrosse Tops Towson, 15-11

The Hounds lacrosse team at Loyola took down Towson, 15-11, on the road early on Wednesday afternoon. Loyola came out hot, and went up 5-1 before Towson was able to narrow the margin. Towson got as close as 8-6, but Loyola scored again before the half to push the margin back to three. The Hounds pushed that lead to an 13-8 margin by end of the third quarter, and held on with relative ease, to win 15-11.

Plenty of players saw time on both sides as the margin increased, but the stars of the game were all playing for Loyola as Brian Sherlock, Zach Herreweyers, and Nikko Pontrello combined for 11 goals. Herreweyers had five while the other two had three (and Pontrello added two assists). Joe Seider had four goals for Towson along with an assist, and Spencer Parks scored a hat trick, while dishing out four helpers, for seven points on the day. The Loyola guys were the stars because they won, but Parks had a prolific afternoon.

Brendan Donovan and Graham Savio split face off duties for Loyola, and this helped the Hounds go 18 for 30 at the X. Four goalies played in the game (two for each team), but all four only combined to make 14 saves on the day. It was a shooter’s paradise at times, but both teams also worked for quality shots. Towson was less deliberate than Loyola overall, and seemed to rush shots during Loyola runs.

Towson got knocked with a couple face off penalties, and both squads were looking good on the man up with Loyola going 3-6, and Towson going 3-4. Loyola plays Holy Cross on February 21st, and Towson takes on Georgetown, on the road, on the same day.

Last week, I had both of these teams in my Top 10, do they both stay, or do they move? HC and Gtown games matter, but how does this result impact the standings?
