EASTON, Pa. - No. 16 Loyola outscored Lafayette 15-6 in the second half to defeat the Leopards 22-12 in a Patriot League matchup on Saturday afternoon from Fisher Stadium.

After a back-and-forth first half, the Greyhounds came out from the break and controlled play, winning 21 of the 22 draw controls in the second half and outshot the Maroon & White 20-9 in the period.

Ana White led the Leopards attack with four goals on the day while Amanda Case and Carlianne McCabe chipped in with three tallies apiece. Laura Kleiber scored two goals in the contest.

Marlee Paton and Hannah Schmitt led the Greyhounds on the attack. Paton scored six goals and dished out four assists for Loyola. Schmitt found the back of the cage five times and had three assists. Taryn VanThof picked up 15 draw controls.

Loyola jumped out to an early 3-0 lead. The Leopards fought back, however, as Case and Kleiber scored back-to-back unassisted goals two and a half minutes a part to make it 3-2. Loyola would score two more goals to push their lead back to three with 17:58 remaining.

Lafayette again responded with back-to-back tallies, this time from White and Case to cut the lead back down to one. Following a Greyhound score, White answered 11 seconds later to keep the game within a goal.

Before the break and the Maroon & White down two, McCabe found the back of the cage to make it 7-6 with 31 seconds remaining in the half. Loyola would return from the locker room with a strong second half performance to pull away from  the Leopards.

Lafayette travels to Bethlehem to face Lehigh on Wednesday night with the opening draw scheduled for 7 p.m.
