Dons drop lax opener to Canadian power Hill
The Loyola Dons opened their 2017 lacrosse season on Saturday afternoon at Blakefield as Canadian prep school power Hill Academy visited Blakefield. The Dons found themselves in a deep early hole, before they began to battle back, falling a little short in their 14-12 loss.

Hill came off the bus in fourth gear and outscored Loyola 6-0 in the opening quarter. Loyola got on track in the second quarter, scoring five times, to get back within three, 8-5, at the half.

The second half was back and forth, but the Dons still trailed by three entering the final frame. The shaved one goal off their deficit in the final quarter, but still came up two short.

Several Dons had big offensive performances with Ryan Dunn leading the way with four goals and an assist. Gavin Dambeck and Colin Clothier each scored a hat-trick and Dambeck had one assist. In addition Connor Hume had one goal and three assists.

Liam Bateman added one goal and one assist, Phil Wies had a pair of assists and Jack Koras and Alex Breschi each had one assist.

Jake Stout recorded 23 saves during a busy afternoon in the Loyola goal.

Loyola will return to action Friday when the Dons travel to Manheim Township in Pennsylvania in search of their first win.
