The Game Story:
ANN ARBOR -- The University of Michigan men's lacrosse team fell to the No. 9-ranked Loyola (Md.) Greyhounds by a 10-3 score Saturday (March 23) inside Michigan Stadium. Four different players contributed points on the afternoon for the Wolverines in the first contest inside the Big House this season.

Trailing 2-0 in the opening quarter, U-M sophomore Will Meter (Bloomfield Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) cut the Greyhound advantage in half on a roll from X, firing a top-shelf shot for the first Wolverine score of the contest.

Loyola then rattled off a trio of goals to take a 5-1 lead into the half, holding the Wolverines scoreless for the entire second quarter.

Senior Thomas Paras (Lakewood, Ohio/St. Ignatius) returned to his familiar midfield spot in the contest, and broke the 25:46 U-M scoring drought with his fifth goal of the season to cut the Greyhound advantage to 5-2 at the 13:50 mark of the third quarter.

Greyhound freshman Zach Herreweyers then scored back-to-back goals for Loyola to bring the score to 7-2, while Mike Sawyer (8:06) and Justin Ward (7:06) chipped in goals of their own to take a 9-2 advantage. Michigan's final goal of the day came from freshman Peter Kraus (New Canaan, Conn./New Canaan) on a helper from classmate Kyle Jackson (Sarnia, Ontario/The Hill School) with 5:42 left in the third stanza.

Loyola scored the final goal of the game at the 7:51 mark of the fourth, the only score for either team in the period.

Freshman goalie Gerald Logan (Wading River, N.Y./Sachem East) made 15 stops in the contest and collected seven ground balls, while the Maize & Blue were outshot, 40-26, on the afternoon. The Wolverines were 22-of-24 on clears and forced 11 Loyola turnovers. A pair of long sticks in sophomore Mack Gembis (Birmingham, Mich./Cranbrook Kingswood) and freshman Chase Brown (Serverna Park, Md./Severn) caused a pair of turnovers against the Greyhound attack.

The Wolverines continue their ECAC conference play on Saturday (March 30), when the Wolverines host the Air Force Academy from Michigan Stadium at 3 p.m. The contest will be streamed live via the Big Ten Student U Network.
