WEST POINT, N.Y. - The Loyola University Maryland women's soccer team dropped a 1-0 decision to the United States Military Academy on Saturday night at Clinton Field.
Army (5-6-1, 2-1-1 Patriot League) took the 1-0 lead in the 53rd minute when Katie Holder sent a shot into the right side of the net from 18 yards out.
Following the Black Knights' goal, Loyola (4-7-1, 0-3-1) had back-to-back scoring opportunities by juniors Brooke Kerrigan and Rosy Hayes. The two midfielders combined for three of the Greyhounds' 11 shots.
Despite trailing Army in shots during the first half, the Greyhounds returned in the final 45 minutes to lead in shots, 9-5.
“Rosy was tremendous for us,” Head Coach Naomi Meiburger said. “I thought we had a great performance tonight and deserved to get something out of the game. Credit to Army, they did a great job defending the box .”
Junior Charlotte Miller took a team-high four shots, putting three on goal. In a time span of 10 minutes, the forward recorded three of her four shots late in the second half.
In goal, senior Colleen Folan made five saves in 90 minutes of action.
Loyola closes out its two-game road trip with an evening matchup at the University of Pennsylvania on Monday. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m.
