The Midshipmen (4-4-1, 1-0-0 Patriot League) scored their eventual game winner in the 70th minute when Daniel Camuti played a ball into the box. Loyola goalkeeper Matt Sanchez came out to secure the loose ball, but Daniel Kwon got to it first and chipped it over the head of Sanchez.

In the first half, Loyola had a opportunity to take a 1-0 advantage in the 23rd minute when Goldsmith played a ball out wide to Vogel. Vogel dribbled and send a cross through the box, but Morgan deflected it from trouble.
