#6 Hoyas Use Late Run to Edge #12 Loyola in Big East Semis

After over five minutes of scoreless action, Paton drew a charge, ran the length of the field and dodged through defenders before finding the back of the net for the go-ahead goal at 15:51.

Free position goals from the Hoyas and Paton moved the score to 11-10, while two Georgetown goals sandwiched around one from Burke knotted the score for a third time, at 12-12.

Georgetown broke the stalemate with a goal at 7:47 and the Hoyas didn't look back as they strung together five-straight scores to take a 16-12 advantage at the 3:26 mark.

VanThof and Dalton scored within 42 seconds of each other to pull the Greyhounds within two with 2:02 to play, but the Hoyas ran the clock out to hold on for the 16-14 victory.

Defensively, Paton had two ground balls and two caused turnovers, while VanThof tied a career-high with a game-high eight draw controls.

The Greyhounds will now await Sunday night's selection show to find out if they have been selected to participate in the 2013 NCAA Championships. The show is set to air on NCAA.com at 9:00 p.m.
