Live Video: Loyola Women Host Florida

from LaxMagazine.com Staff Reports | Twitter

After starting with back-to-back wins against nationally ranked opponents, the Loyola women's lacrosse team dropped a pair of contests last week to Johns Hopkins and James Madison - taking a tumble in the polls as a result.

Florida, on the other hand, has been on a tear since a season-opening loss at No. 1 North Carolina, most recently dismantling Stony Brook by a 14-1 score on Saturday to improve to 4-1. One of the wins in that stretch was a 21-8 drubbing of the same James Madison team that took an 8-7 win over Loyola on Saturday.

The pair meet in an early afternoon Tuesday tilt at Loyola's Ridley Athletic Complex. Live video will be provided by the Patriot League Network, powered by Campus Insiders.

The Gators are led by Shannon Gilroy, who has scored 24 times already on the season and has a team-best 31 draw controls. Sammi Burgess leads with 13 ground balls. Annie Thomas (5G, 8A) and midfielders Hannah Schmitt and Marlee Paton have 12 points each for Loyola.
