Loyola 12, Mount St. Mary's 7 -- The visiting Greyhounds held the nation's leading goal scorer, Katelyn Catanese with 54 goals, to just one in the first meeting between the schools. Grace Gavin scored four goals, all in the second half, to lead Loyola (6-7), which scored 21 goals against Louisville three days ago.

Catholic 17, Goucher 12 -- The host Cardinals (9-4, 2-0 Landmark Conference) used a 6-0 run in the second half to beat the Gophers (2-8, 1-1).

Cole scored two more times in the half to give the Gophers a 7-5 lead at the break. Goucher's lead grew to 8-5 just over two minutes into the second half on a goal by Marlo Tersigni, but the Cardinals took an 11-8 advantage with their run of six consecutive goals.
