Loyola's MacDonnell, Hagelin honored by ECAC

Loyola senior attackman Cooper MacDonnell and junior goalkeeper Jake Hagelin -- both of whom played a pivotal role in the team's 8-7 overtime win against No. 11 Navy on Saturday -- were named the Offensive and co-Defensive Players of the Week by the Eastern College Athletic Conference on Monday.

MacDonnell notched career highs in goals (six) and points (seven) and scored the game-winning goal with nine seconds left in overtime to propel the No. 10 Greyhounds to their first season-opening victory since 2004. MacDonnell was selected by the league as the Preseason Player of the Year.

Hagelin made just three saves, but two came in the waning minutes of regulation and one occurred when he stopped Midshipmen sophomore attackman Ryan O'Leary with about a minute left in overtime. Hagelin, a Havre de Grace native and Boys' Latin graduate, collected the groundball and began a clear that led to MacDonnell's heroics.

Hey Edward, where is Michael Sawyer this year for Loyola Univ.?


As I understand it, Michael is not a member of the Greyhounds lacrosse program. Not sure if that means that he's not enrolled at the school, but I know that there is no plan for him to play this season for Loyola. -- Ed
