A push for the Missouri Valley Conference regular season crown may be just out of reach, but it was still a great week for Loyola-Chicago.

The latest men’s Player of the Week helped get the Ramblers a pair of wins in high-scoring fashion. Junior midfielder Billy Hency had a hand in five of the six goals his team scored win wins against Bradley and Evansville.

He scored a goal and had an assist in a 3-2 overtime winner against Bradley on Wednesday, before putting in a two-goal, one-assist shift in a much more comfortable 3-0 win this past Sunday.
