Loyola vs. Duke
March 9, 2002
The Game Story:
BALTIMORE - Sophomore attackman Stephen Brundage had two goals and three assists, including one of each in a 4-0 Loyola run that spanned the third and fourth quarters, as the No. 8 Greyhounds held off third-ranked Duke, 11-9, in a men's lacrosse game played at Curley Field Saturday afternoon.

Loyola (3-0), which defeated Duke for the third straight year, led 6-5 after a Duke extra-man goal with 13:21 left in the third quarter but scored the next four goals after that to take control. Jim Fink scored the first of his team-high three goals to begin the Greyhound run, and Brundage then rolled the crease for a one-on-one goal with 2:05 left in the third quarter to make the score 8-5. Fink then scored on an outside shot to give Loyola a 9-5 advantage after three quarters, and Chris Summers scored 2:21 into the fourth quarter to give the Greyhounds a five-goal lead.

Duke (2-1) stayed in the game after that, however, scoring three straight goals in a 3:20 span in the fourth quarter to cut the Greyhound lead to 10-8. Loyola earned an extra-man situation after Duke's Kevin Cassese scored with 6:33 left, however, and Joey Case scored to push the Greyhounds ahead by three goals again.

Cassese led the Blue Devils with two goals and an assist, while Matt Rewkowski and Terrence Keaney each scored two goals. Duke outshot Loyola, 46-40, including 19-5 in the fourth quarter.

Michael Sullivan added two goals and an assist for Loyola, which finished 3-for-6 on extra-man opportunities. Duke was 3-for-5 on the extra man but fell victim to a strong performance by Loyola galie Mark Bloomquist, who had 11 saves, including four in the third quarter. Duke goalie A.J. Kincel had 10 saves

The Greyhounds, under first-year head coach Bill Dirrigl, have now started the season 3-0 for the fourth straight season. Loyola plays only one home game in the next six weeks after today, a conference game against Sacred Heart.
