Box Score

Baltimore, Md. - The Loyola College women's soccer team scored four goals in the second half to top Lehigh 4-1 Tuesday afternoon at Diane Geppi-Aikens Field. The Greyhounds, who had four different goal scorers, improve to 3-5-2 on the season while the Mountain Hawks fall to 5-6-0.

The teams played evenly for the first half with Loyola recording six shots to Lehigh's seven but neither was able to put a notch on the score board.

Ten minutes into the second half however, Loyola changed that. Senior Kaitlin Klar beat her defender at the top of the box and was able to pass the ball off to a waiting Theresa Ferraina on the right. Ferraina drove in and beat the keeper with a shot into the left hand corner for the 1-0 Greyhound lead.

Loyola cushioned the lead 50 seconds later when senior Carolyn Kennington drew the keeper out of the box and her long kick from 30 yards out sailed into the goal. Klar was credited with the assist for the 2-0 lead.

In the 74th minute the Greyhounds added to their lead when Lea Day's corner kick found Christina Gomez waiting in front of the goal. Gomez tapped the ball in to the left corner for the 3-0 lead.

Loyola continued to roll offensively as Day's corner in the 77th minute sailed into the box to Klar. Klar found the open feet of Sarra Moller who tapped the ball in for the 4-0 lead.

The Mountain Hawks were able to get on the board later in the second half. In the 82nd minute Lauren Fornuto drew the Loyola keeper out of the box and her kick from 20 yards out sailed into the goal for the 4-1 final. Alex Warren was credited with the assist.

The Greyhounds finished the game with a 14-9 advantage in shots, a 10-6 lead in shots on goal and a 6-2 advantage in corner kicks.

Loyola keeper Brittany Henderson was credited with five saves while Lehigh's Julie Kafka recorded six.

Loyola returns to Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play as they host Canisius on Friday. The game will be played at Diane Geppi-Aikens Field with a start time of 3:00.
