• At American, Loyola snapped the Eagles’ then-212 minute shutout streak in League games, beating the preseason favorites 1-0 in Washington, D.C. Through six League games, Loyola is one of only two teams to score against American this season.

• Freshman Brian Saramago broke out for his first career hat trick in a 3-3 double-overtime tie against Boston University. He was named the Patriot League, NSCAA and NCAA Player of the Week for his play against the preseason runners up. 

• Saramago added to his hot streak against Lehigh, scoring a pair of goals in the first 16 minutes to help Loyola knock off the defending Patriot League Tournament Champions, 2-1. 

• Saramago picked up his second-straight Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week on October 17 to become the first League player with dual honors this season. 

• At Army West Point, Gabriel Carlsson scored in the 88th minute to get the Greyhounds their 2-2 tie and keep Loyola unbeaten in League play.

• In the seventh League contest, Bucknell became the first conference foe to hold Loyola scoreless this season, as the Bison also handed the Greyhounds their first League loss.
