Key Factors: The Wolfpack have had the Ramblers number this season, winning both of the contests between the two teams. So who does that benefit? St Ignatius probably has the confidence to beat Loyola after those two encounters, but playing more than once has likely given Loyola head coach Rich Schici and company plenty of time to try and figure out a way to beat the Wolfpack when it matters most. St Ignatius will look to their defense to carry them as usual, just like they did when they limited Loyola to just 11 goals in the two games earlier this year. Can the vaunted St Ignatius defense keep the Ramblers from scoring, or will the one-two punch of Brittany Wallace and Evan Swenson find a way to outscore the Wolfpack and get to the semifinal round?
