Navy’s women’s lacrosse game Saturday against Loyola Maryland has been moved an hour earlier to a 1 p.m. start at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

The No. 12 Midshipmen host a rematch of last year’s Patriot League championship win over the No. 6 Greyhounds, the first loss suffered by Loyola since joining the conference in 2014. Navy went on to the NCAA semifinals for the first time in program history, where it fell to Boston College, 16-15.
