Loyola Maryland found out its opponent in Friday's Patriot League tournament semifinal, and the identity of that team might be somewhat surprising.

Holy Cross, the No. 5 seed, upset No. 4 seed Navy, 11-7, in the first of two quarterfinals Tuesday and will play the top-seeded Greyhounds on Friday at 4:30 p.m. at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore.

In their only meeting, on March 4, Loyola (8-5) walloped Holy Cross, 16-9.

The second semifinal scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. will pit No. 2 seed Army West Point (10-3) against No. 3 seed Boston University (12-3). Courtesy of four goals and one assist from sophomore attackman James Burr, the Terriers broke a 3-3 tie at halftime to earn a 10-4 win against No. 6 seed Lehigh (7-7).

The Black Knights edged Boston University, 11-10, on April 8.
