LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. - Siena scored two goals in the second half, the final coming with less than five minutes to play in regulation and the 25th-ranked Saints defeated visiting Loyola University Maryland, 3-2 in Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference action on Friday afternoon.

Loyola (5-7-2 overall, 1-2-0 MAAC) took a 2-0 lead in the first 22 minutes of the game, but Siena (11-0-0, 3-0-0) scored the final three goals of the game.

Ashleigh Barone tied the game at 2-2 in the 55th minute, and she added the game-winner with 4:32 to go in the second half.

"We had opportunities to put the game away, but we did not take advantage of them," Head Coach Katherine Vettori said.

The Greyhounds had two corner kicks and Nichole Schiro had a shot on goal after Barone's second goal, but Loyola could not tie the score.

Gianna Mangione put Loyola on the board 9:55 into the contest after Kelly Farrell lofted a free kick into the box. Manginoe headed it home for her third goal of the season.
