Box Score

Loudenville, N.Y. - The Greyhounds scored two goals in the span of 100 seconds en route to a 2-nil victory over Siena in Friday's conference opener in Loudenville, N.Y. The goals, scored in the 50th and 51st minutes of play improve Loyola's mark on the season to 8-2 overall and 1-0 in the MAAC.

Sophomore Jamie Darvill struck first with the go-ahead goal at 50:10. Darvill, who got the assist from freshman Phil Bannister, tallied this third score of the season and second game-winner from the top of the box.

It was less than two minutes later that freshman Eddie Dines headed home a ball into the left corner of the goal to double the Greyhounds margin. For Dines, it was his fourth goal of the season, putting him one behind team leader Bannister.

The Greyhound defense, which earned a shutout for the fifth time this season and for the second straight game, was anchored by the play of sophomore Milos Kocic, who made five saves in the win.

Loyola continues MAAC competition on Sunday when it travels to Marist to take on the Red Foxes. Game time from Poughkeepsie is slated for 1 p.m.
