WASHINGTON - The No. 18 Georgetown University men's lacrosse team (4-1, 1-0 BIG EAST) heads to Baltimore, Md. to take on No. 5 Loyola on Wednesday evening with the face-off scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Ridley Athletic Complex. The meeting will be the 35th of all time between the Hoyas and Greyhounds, with GU trailing 6-28, including last year's 6-5 quadruple overtime loss.

The Hoyas enter Wednesday night's game having won its last four, including three consecutive one-goal victories over Harvard, Mount St. Mary's and Providence College. Junior midfielder Brian Casey (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Prep) has scored three goals and added three assists over his last two games, including game-winners in each of the last two, helping him earn his second BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll selection of the season. Casey leads the team with 15 points (7 goals, 8 assists).

Despite sitting out against Providence, senior midfielder Zack Angel (Park Hall, Md./St. Mary's Ryken) is GU's goal-scoring leader with 11. Angel has had hat tricks in the last three games he has played, the longest stretch of three-goal games during his career. Junior attack Jason McFadden (Bel Air, Md./Calvert Hall) has also been a difference-maker on offense, second on the team with 12 points (7 goals, 5 assists).

The Blue & Gray have received strong contributions from several different players at the face-off X this season. During the last two games it has been sophomore Chris May (McLean, Va./Gonzaga). May burst onto the scene against The Mount, winning five-of-five face-offs in a decisive fourth quarter, helping GU rally from a three-goal deficit to win 9-8. Against Providence, May won 12-of-17 face-offs to help the Hoyas control possession.

Senior goalie Matt Winter (New Haven, Conn./Choate Rosemary Hall) has won all three of his decisions this season, holding opponents to 8.17 goals per game, while maintaining a .571 save percentage. Senior defenders Bobby Boyle and Patrick Schmitz are leading the defense in caused turnovers, with 10 and seven, respectively.

 

 

LOYOLA: The Greyhounds are undefeated, behind an offense that has averaged 13.33 goals per game, a mark good for fifth in the country. Loyola has also been strong in the second half of games, outscoring opponents 46-23 through six games this season. Defensively, the Greyhounds have been one of the nation's best, holding opponents to 7.67 goals per game, the eighth best mark in Division I.
