Baltimore, MD – The Loyola Greyhounds advanced to the Patriot League finals with a 12-6 victory over Colgate in the PL semifinals on Friday.
The game began under threatening skies that only grew more menacing as a heavy downpour blew through the Greyhound’s Ridley Athletic Complex. Senior Justin Ward had two goals and three assists to lead Loyola (13-1). Ward, who was one of seven Greyhounds to earn All-Patriot League honors this season, has sixty points on the season backed by 15 goals and 45 assists.
In the second Patriot League semifinal at Ridley on Friday, third-seeded Lehigh (13-4) upset the Army Black Knights (9-4), 12-11, when Reid Weber scored with just under four seconds left on the game clock. The victory sets up Sunday’s final at 1:00 pm between Loyola and Lehigh.

The Terps will close out their regular season next weekend when they face Navy (4-9) in College Park.
