Lacrosse roundup (May 5): Loyola women hold off Boston University to reach Patriot final

Sophomore midfielder Sabrina Tabasso was the difference-maker as the top-seeded Loyola Maryland women's lacrosse team outlasted visiting Boston University, 19-14, in a Patriot League semifinal Friday night.

Tabasso set a Patriot League tournament record with 18 draw controls and Loyola needed every possession she provided to avoid the upset.


Junior attack Frankie Kamely scored five goals and assisted on another for Loyola (11-7), which will try to secure its fourth consecutive championship on Sunday, against Navy, at Ridley Athletic Complex. Sophomore attack Hannah Powers and sophomore midfielder Lindsey Ehrhardt scored four goals apiece for the Greyhounds, who led 11-8 at halftime.

Junior midfielder Katrina Geiger had two goals and two assists for Loyola, which had a 24-11 advantage on draws. Senior attack Cami Whiteford (Severn) added two goals for the Greyhounds, who have won all 41 Patriot League games they have played since joining in 2014.


Elisabeth Jayne scored four goals for fourth-seeded Boston University (10-8), which got 12 saves from goalie Caroline Meegan (Dulaney).

"An extremely tough BU side that is very well-coached so we had our hands full for the entire 60 minutes," Loyola coach Jen Adams said. "I think some people stepped up that we haven't been seeing step up over the course of the season. To see them at tournament time take the load off some of the other players was incredible."
