BALTIMORE – Loyola coach Charley Toomey remembers the last time he participated in a final four. He just hasn’t seen one of the more important moments from that trip in more than two decades.
Toomey was the goalie on the 1990 Loyola team that remains the only national finalist in program history. The Greyhounds advanced to the title game with a 14-13 double overtime defeat of Yale, and Toomey made 13 saves that day.
The last came in overtime. It also came in an era when television wasn’t omnipresent in the sport.
“Remember, it was [tape] delayed,” Toomey said. “To this day, I’ve never seen – our Yale game went to overtime and I want to say it went to two overtimes, and I have never had an opportunity to see my only save in overtime because it was cut. They used to have to keep it in that hour and they had to cut segments of it out, Now those things that don’t happen. If anyone has footage of that, I’d still like to see that one save from 1990.”
