Early in the fourth quarter Saturday, Loyola Maryland senior attackman Pat Spencer took a pass near the top of the restraining box and got pushed to the left by Virginia defenseman Logan Greco.
Greco got several nice body shots on Spencer, who appeared to be past the right goal post. There was no way he would get a shot off.
And then Spencer, with the flick of his left wrist, hurled a low bounce shot by goalie Alex Rode with his off-hand. It seemed effortless on Spencer’s part, so much that a frustrated Greco walked over to his left with his hands on his hips. Then he looked up at the sky.
Yes, it was that kind of day.
