Sept. 20, 2008

Box Score

EMMITSBURG, Md. - Loyola College junior forward Jamie Darvill scored in the game's fourth minute, a tally that would hold up as the 17th-ranked Greyhounds defeated host Mount St. Mary's, 1-0, Saturday afternoon at Waldron Family Stadium.

Darvill took a pass from Mark Jaskolski and beat The Mount's goalkeeper, Chris Davis, with a shot into the right side of the net.

Loyola (6-0-1) took only four shots in the match, two by Darvill and two from Jaskolski, who was making his first collegiate start.

The Greyhounds' defense, and goalkeeper Milos Kocic, was strong throughout the game, limiting The Mount's scoring opportunities. Kocic made five saves in his fifth shutout of the season.

Early in the first half, Mount St. Mary's had three corner kicks in the span of a minute, but the Greyhounds' defense held The Mount to only one shot, an attempt that went high by Scott Phinith.

The Mount (3-3-0) kept the offensive pressure on until late. Kocic made a save on a Vinnie Berry shot with under five minutes remaining, a shot that would be The Mount's final offensive opportunity.

Loyola's victory extended the Greyhounds' unbeaten streak to 15 games, dating back to the 2007 season.

The match was the first of consecutive road contests against in-state opponents for the Greyhounds. Loyola travels to UMBC on Saturday, September 27, 2008, for a 1 p.m. match.
