Baltimore, MD – With “2014 Patriot League 2014 Champs” now on their resumé, the Loyola Greyhounds (14-1) will turn to matters nearer at hand when they face down fellow Charles Street residents, Johns Hopkins (10-3).
In 2012, Hopkins had the edge in an overtime win that proved Loyola’s only loss of their championship season.
Until 2012 the Greyhounds labored in the shadow of their better-known counterparts roughly a mile south on the city’s best-known thoroughfare. With a national title that year, along with a better record and a conference championship this year, the Greyhounds are gradually establishing themselves as the best lacrosse program on Charles Street.
Game time is noon at Loyola’s Ridley Athletic Complex.
After bowing out in the ACC tourney, the Terps are in a good position for an at-large bid to the tourney, but a loss to Navy would certainly damage that likelihood.
On Navy’s side they are increasingly being labeled as a team that does not play well on the road. A victory at College Park would be a huge step for the program, and easily their best win since upsetting Hopkins in 2012 in Annapolis.
