Buffalo, N.Y. - Courtney Arikian scored two goals and teammate Ty Glenn added another tally as the visiting Greyhounds dropped the Canisius College Golden Griffins 3-0 in MAAC women's soccer action Sunday afternoon at the Demske Sports Complex. Loyola improves to 6-4 overall and 2-0 in conference play with the victory, while the Griffs see their two-game winning streak end and fall to 2-7 overall, 1-2 in league action.
Arikian scored two times in a 1:55 span midway through the first half to give the Greyhounds a lead they would not relinquish. Loyola got on the board in the game's 34th minute after Ali Andrzejewski fired a shot that nailed the crossbar. Arikian was able to settle the rebound and then booted her own shot over the head of Canisius goalkeeper Jenna Gage into the net. Loyola took a 2-0 lead just moments later as Arikian headed in a corner kick from teammate Carolyn Kennington.
Glenn closed out the scoring in the second half on a breakaway shot that beat Gage low on the left hand side of the net. Kaitlin Klar was credited with the assist.
For the game, Loyola out shot the Griffs by an 18-9 count and held a 7-3 advantage in corner kicks.
Gage made three saves for Canisius, while Loyola's Amanda Piccirilli was forced to make one stop in 90 minutes of action.
Kennington's assist moved her into second place in Loyola's all-time record book in both points and assists. She currently has 60 points in her career (three shy of the record) and 18 assists, just one away from the record of 19 held by Jamie DeSoto.
The Greyhounds are back in action on Wednesday as they host Penn in their final non-conference match-up of the season.
