|Loyola 16 vs. Duke 11||Loyola Recap|
College Crosse Recap.
In a highly anticipated rematch the Greyhounds took care of the Blue Devils, 16-11. While Duke was able to keep it close in the first half, Loyola was never not in control of the game. Indeed, aside from Jack Bruckner's 6 goals, Loyola contained the rest of Duke's potent offense to only 5 goals combined.
Freshman Pat Spencer demonstrated why he is one of the best players in D1, as he finished with 8 points (3 goals and 5 assists) and played a part in almost every single goal for Loyola. . Though it may too late to make a difference, Spencer showed why he should be included in any Tewaaraton Award discussion. While Spencer had a great game, his partner in crime, Zach Herreweyers, wasn't too shabby either, as he finished with a career best six goals. Additionally, Zach Spiro also contributed greatly with 2 goals and 1 assist.
While Pat and Zach were lights out, Loyola's defense deserves a ton of credit as well. Loyola's goalie Jacob Stover had a career-high 16 saves, including several that he had no business making. Additionally, the Loyola D held Deemer Class, Myles Jones, and Justin Guterding to only 3 goals and 5 assists combined.
While Duke's Jack Bruckner had an amazing game, he just didn't have enough help. Indeed, the first non-Bruckner goal for Duke didn't come until the 3rd quarter. However, after that goal by Deemer Class early in the 3rd quarter, Loyola outscored the Blue Devils 7-4 the rest of the game.
