RIVERDALE, NY - Junior Chase Franklin scored his first goal as a Greyhound and sophomore Vinnie Piscopo added his second goal of the year in Loyola's 2-2 tie at Manhattan on Friday afternoon. The Greyhounds score twice in less than five minutes to earn their third tie of the season.
The Jaspers scored first and led 1-0 at halftime. Tommy Lenhardt's header gave Manhattan a lead it would hold until the 72nd minute. Loyola knotted the score at 1-1 when a restart by freshman Danny Wheelan found its way to Kevin Nash, who led Franklin for the goal.
With the score all tied up and Loyola outshooting Manhattan by a large margin, it would not be long before the Greyhounds would take the lead. Wheelan's corner kick headed in by Piscopo gave the 'Hounds a 2-1 advantage at 76:06.
The lead, however, would be short lived, and at 80:17, Manhattan's Joe Pumo knocked in a rebound in front of the cage to even the game at 2-2.
Freshman Justin Chelland, who played all 110 minutes in goal, earned his second tie of the year. The first was against Pennsylvania and that final was 2-2 as well. The freshman moves his record this season to 3-0-2.
Loyola finished the game with 20 shots, including five in overtime. Manhattan managed eight shots on the Greyhound defense, which has given up a total of two goals in Loyola's last four games.
The 'Hounds are now 7-3-3 overall and 4-1-1 in the MAAC. Loyola plays at St. Peter's on Sunday at 1 p.m.
