Final Stats

BUIES CREEK, North Carolina - The Loyola University Maryland men’s soccer team dropped a 1-0 decision to Campbell Saturday night at Eakes Athletic Complex.

The Camels (2-0) took a 1-0 lead in the 38th minute when Bradley Farias drew three Greyhound defenders just inside the left corner of the box. A scramble ensued between the two teams and resulted in a simultaneous sliding shot from Farias and a clear attempt by the Greyhounds deflecting over the top transfer sophomore goalkeeper Matt Sanchez’s head and into the back of the goal.

Despite creating two corner kick opportunities early in the game, including one in the first minute of play, Loyola (1-2) didn’t have its first real scoring opportunity until the 34th minute when senior Connor Thompson went one-on-one with Campbell’s goalkeeper. Matthew Mozynski turned Thompson’s shot away though and then proceeded to keep Thompson from regaining possession of the ball, ending the play.

Throughout the game, the Camels held a 6-1 advantage in shots and a 6-3 edge in corner kicks.

In goal, Sanchez stopped two shots for the Greyhounds, while Mozynski turned back one for Campbell.

Loyola will return to action on Wednesday when it heads to Drexel for a 7 p.m., contest.
