The Tigers tried to creep closer but were down just 10-7 before a five-goal Loyola run in a span of 5:12 made the hole much bigger to climb out of at 14-7, the largest lead of the game.

Lloyd added her second and third goals but Thomas halted the run with a goal at 3:03 to make it 15-9.

Doherty would deliver the final tally, an unassisted goal with 21 seconds left.
