Sept. 30, 2005

Box Score

Baltimore, Md. - Loyola junior Carolyn Kennington may not have scored one of Loyola's five goals in a 5-1 win over Marist Friday but she assisted on two and that was good enough to break the Greyhounds all-time assist record. The Greyhounds improve to 8-4-0 and stay undefeated at 3-0-0 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference while the Red Foxes' fall to 3-7-1 and 2-1-0 in the conference.

Senior Ali Andrzejewski opened scoring late in the 11th minute when Ashley Kramer passed the ball off to her. Andrzejewski beat her defender and took a clean shot from the left corner that sailed into the goal.

Less than three minutes later, freshman defender Sarra Moller scored on a play that originated on a corner kick by Kennington. Junior Courtney Arikian headed the kick further towards the goal where Moller was able to get her shot past Marist goalie Anna Case for the 2-0 score. It was Moller's first collegiate goal.

Just over a minute after Moller's goal, in the 14th minute, Andrzejewski added to her tally with another goal assisted by Ashley Kramer. It was Andrzejewski's second goal of the day and it allowed her to tie Loyola's all-time goals (28) and points (63) record, both held by Becky Bieneman.

To close the half, another freshman got her first goal as Lea Day took a pass from Kennington, dribbled the ball within scoring range and got it past Case for the 4-0 halftime score. With that assist, Kennington, a Toms River, N.J. native, broke the all-time assist record of 19 held by Jamie DeSoto who played for the Greyhounds from 1995-98. Just over half way through her junior season, Kennington holds the mark at 20 assists.

The score remained 4-0 for much of the second half until the 74th minute. Marist got a tally on the scoreboard when Amanda Kulik took a header pass from Haley Hart for the 4-1 score.

The Greyhounds were able to move quickly for one more goal for the 5-1 final. In the 75th minute, junior Katelyn Woods got control of the ball during a scramble in front of the goal and was able to pass it to sophomore Ty Glenn for the score.

Amanda Piccirrilli started the game in goal for Loyola and stopped three shots in the first half until senior Kate Gilfillan entered the game in the second half. Gilfillan recorded three saves as well. For Marist, Case had one save in the first half while Caitlin Mazarechuk recorded two in the second half.

Loyola continues its home stretch with a 1:00 game on Sunday vs. Siena.
