PHILADELPHIA - The Loyola University Maryland women’s soccer team lost its third non-conference match of the season, 1-0, at Saint Joseph’s University on Friday night in Philadelphia.

Saint Josephs’ (4-1-2) Mo Hawkins scored the lone goal of the match in the 22nd minute, firing a left footed shot just past the hands of senior Didi Haracic and into the bottom right corner of the goal. Hawkins tallied her third goal of the season. 

Haracic made two saves in goal for the Greyhounds, while the Hawks’ goalkeeper Lauren Jancuska tabbed her fourth shutout of the season. 

The Greyhounds (1-3-1) were able to generate several quality chances in the first five minutes of regulation, but were unable to find the back of the goal.

Rookie Nicole Wojcik took a corner kick, which made its way to fellow classmate Nicole Wahlig. Wahlig connected for the header, but the ball made it into the hands of Jancuska. Less than 20 seconds later, sophomore Charlotte Miller had another clean opportunity to score, but the Hawks’ goalkeeper was there again for the save.  

The back four of Kelly Santangelo, Rosy Hayes, Morgan Crable, and Riley Piechnick  held the Hawks scoreless for the final 68 minutes of action.

Saint Joseph’s outshot the Greyhounds 11-10, while Loyola held a 5-4 advantage in corner kicks.

The Greyhounds will return to action on Sunday, Sept. 15, to take on the La Salle Explorers at 1 p.m.
