Men's Soccer Match With Fairfield To Be Broadcast Live On CN8

Oct. 4, 2005

Baltimore, Md. - Loyola's men's soccer match with Fairfield on Sunday, October 23 will air live on CN8. Created by Comcast Cable Communications, CN8 is one of the nation's leading regional cable networks with a reach that spans approximately 6.4 million homes across eight states.

"CN8 has done a great job of covering college soccer in the Mid-Atlantic States this season," says Loyola Coach Mark Mettrick. "Their coverage, along with national coverage from ESPN is very good for the game."

For the Greyhounds, the Fairfield match will be the third televised game thus far this season. Loyola's season opener at Princeton was televised by Patriot Media and its match with No. 18 Pennsylvania was shown tape-delay on CN8.

"We're fortunate to already have three televised games," adds Mettrick. "Having our Fairfield game shown on live TV is great exposure for the program."

The game will begin at noon and will be played at Alumnae Field. The Greyhounds have won six straight against Fairfield en route to six straight regular season MAAC titles. Fairfield was picked to finish third in this year's preseason coaches' poll while Loyola was picked at the season favorite.

CN8's coverage area includes Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Maine.
