For the fifth straight season, the situation is the same going into the Patriot League Tournament final for women’s lacrosse. No. 2 Navy must upset top-seeded Loyola Maryland in order to capture the championship.
The Midshipmen fell short in the initial two meetings, losing to the Greyhounds in the tournament final 14-9 in 2015 then 12-8 in 2016. However, Navy has turned the tables the last two seasons, shocking Loyola on its home field in the Patriot League finals – 15-5 in 2017 and 17-10 in 2018.
Here we go again.
