The Game Story:
No. 3 Georgetown Stays Undefeated With 14-5 Win over Loyola

Vettoretti, Walker Score Three Goals For GU; Greyhounds Lose Third Straight

WASHINGTON, DC (April 12)--Trevor Walker and Neal Goldman each scored two goals in a 6-1 Georgetown third quarter and Mike Hammer added a goal and four assists as the No. 3 Hoyas stayed undefeated with a 14-5 win over No. 13 Loyola before 1,603 at Harbin Field Saturday afternoon.

Walker and Goldman each scored two goals in the first 10 minutes of the third quarter as the Hoyas (8-0) scored the first five goals of the quarter to extend from a 7-3 halftime lead to a 13-4 lead after three quarters. The Greyhounds (5-4) got behind 3-0 early on and never led in losing their third straight game for the first time since the 1996 season.

Georgetown, which defeated Loyola for the second straight year, led just 3-2 after Stephen Brundage scored for the Greyhounds with 3:05 elapsed in the second quarter. But the Hoyas then scored the next three goals in a three-minute span, including a goal apiece from Hammer and Jordan Vettoretti, to take a 6-2 lead with 3:58 left in the first half.

Vettoretti, Walker and Goldman all scored three goals for the Hoyas, who outshot Loyola 46-22, including 22-9 in the first half. Nick Miaritis scored twice and added an assist for Georgetown, which also won 13 of the game's 21 faceoffs and controlled 41 groundballs to just 25 for Loyola.

Brundage and Chris Summers each scored twice for Loyola, which had just 11 of its 22 shots find the goal. Mark Bloomquist had seven of his 11 saves in the second half as the Hoyas outshot the Greyhounds 24-13 in the final 30 minutes.

The Greyhounds finished just 15-for-25 on clearing attempts for the game, including 6-for-13 in the first half. Hammer's goal midway through the second quarter that made the score 5-2 came on a errant Loyola clearing pass, while Vettoretti's goal with 44 seconds on the second-quarter clock also came as a result of a failed clear.
