Bucknell stuns Loyola Maryland in OT

LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Continuing its run of dramatic victories this season, Bucknell scored two late goals in regulation, then won it 45 seconds into overtime on an open laser from Sean Doyle to stun 16th-ranked Loyola Maryland 10-9 on Friday night before an Alumni Night and Senior Night crowd of 1,850 at Christy Mathewson-Memorial Stadium. With the victory in the regular-season finale, the Bison earned the No. 3 seed for the Patriot League Tournament and will host Lehigh at 7 p.m. in a quarterfinal game on Tuesday. 

There were stars galore for both sides in a game in which Bucknell (8-5, 5-3 PL) never led until Doyle's overtime strike. David Dickson, one of nine seniors honored before the game, tallied a goal and four assists, including the right-to-left skip pass that set up the Doyle walkoff. Will Sands completed a hat trick with a dramatic tying goal with 24 seconds left in regulation. Sam Hahn played a critical role by winning 13 of 20 faceoffs against a Loyola squad that entered the night winning 56.3 percent on the season. And Ben Kellar had the defensive play of the night with a clean takeaway on Tyler Albrecht on the first possession of overtime. 

Zach Herreweyers, the Patriot League's leading goal-scorer, hit the net five times for the Greyhounds (7-7, 5-3 PL), while Brian Sherlock handed out five assists. 

Bucknell hung in there defensively against a Loyola squad that is the only team in the country with three 40-point scorers. But a 20:34 scoreless drought by the Bison offense enabled the Greyhounds to build a 7-4 lead after three periods. 

The Bucknell attack awoke at just the right time, pumping in six goals in the fourth quarter plus overtime.

College wrestling weight-by-weight power rankings for Jan. 14

Called “upsets” by many, a number of weight classes – 141, 157, 184, 197 – have had some chaotic activity so the rankings continue to change from week-to-week. This weekend’s best match-up? Maybe its Suriano and Iowa’s Austin DeSanto or perhaps Nebraska’s Tyler Berger and Penn State pinning machine Jason Nolf.
