Stanford, Calif. - No. 15 Stanford women's lacrosse dropped a 9-4 decision to the No. 1 Loyola Greyhounds (13-0) this afternoon at Maloney Field. Stanford falls to 10-3 on the year, but all three losses have been to teams ranked in the top-three, while Loyola remains undefeated in 2003.

Both teams were scoreless for the first 15 minutes of the contest, but Loyola's Jen Schuerholz and Suzanne Eyler netted back-to-back goals for a 2-0 lead with just under 13 minutes left in the first half. Stanford's Kim Cahill (Stockton, CA/Thacer) scored the Cardinal's only goal of the first half on an assist from freshman Megan Burker (Baltimore, MD/Bryn Mawr), but the Greyhounds added two more goals for the three-point margin at the half.

Loyola came out firing in the second half, scoring three goals in the first nine minutes. Stephanie Walker tallied her first goal of the game just over one minute into the half before Sydney Greene and Eyler each added one.

The Cardinal's leading scorer sophomore Kelsey Twist (Baltimore, MD/Roland Park) took her first shot of the day and scored before junior Nina Pantano (Wayne, PA/Radnor) added her first goal of the match with 13:29 left in the game to cut the Stanford deficit to 7-3. But Loyola outscored Stanford 2-1 in the final six minutes, though, and earned the 9-4 victory.

Stanford will be back in action on Wednesday night as the Cardinal will honor its two seniors before their last regular season home game against California at 7 p.m. The match will also mark the end of the Mountain Pacific Lacrosse League regular season, but Stanford will host the conference tournament on May 3-4.
