HAMILTON, N.Y. - Colgate University used three first-half goals to defeat Loyola University Maryland women's soccer, 3-0, on Saturday afternoon in Hamilton, N.Y.
Loyola (1-7-2 overall, 0-2 Patriot League) took five of its seven shots in the final 13 minutes of action, and senior Chantal Celestin accounted for the lone shot attempt in the first 45 minutes.
In the seventh minute, Colgate's Emily Manoogian put the first point on the scoreboard after a Loyola volley sent the ball sailing into the air. Jenna Panepinto continued the volley to Manoogian, who chested the pass and knocked the ball into the net from the eight-yard line.
The Raiders took two more shot attempts, before ultimately finding the back of the net in the 27th minute. The recently named Brine Patriot League Rookie of the Week, Sarah Coy, took a through ball from Lexi Panepinto and scored, despite a diving save attempt from senior Didi Haracic.
Ten minutes before both teams entered the locker room, Colgate scored its final goal of the contest. A through ball pass from Manoogian to Catherine Williams sealed the victory for Colgate (6-3, 2-0).
In goal, Haracic played all 90 minutes and tabbed four saves for the Greyhounds.
Loyola returns back to action Wednesday evening in Lewisburg, Pa., where it will face Bucknell University at 7 p.m.
