Here are a few notes that didn’t make Sunday’s article on No. 1 seed Loyola’s 10-9 decision against Denver in Saturday’s NCAA tournament quarterfinal due to space constraints.
*After getting their first 11 goals from 11 different players in a 14-13 overtime win against the Pioneers in an Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament semifinal May 2, the Greyhounds got six different scorers on Saturday.
*Fifth-year senior attackman Eric Lusby set a career high with seven points, eclipsing his previous best of six points against Bellarmine on March 3. His five goals tied a career high.

*Junior attackman Mike Sawyer finished with just one goal, but it was enough to break a tie with Tim Goettelmann for the program record for most goals in a season. Sawyer scored his 51st goal of the year, moving past Goettelmann who scored 50 in 2000.
*Junior midfielder Sean O’Sullivan has tallied at least one point in every game this season. He finished with an assist against Denver.
*Pioneers freshman Ryan LaPlante set a program record for most saves in an NCAA tournament game. His 14 stops were one better than Austin Konkel’s 13 against Maryland in 2008 and Jamie Faus’ 13 against Villanova in 2011.
