Loudonville, N.Y. - Sophomore Lea Day scored twice to help the Loyola women's soccer team to a 2-1 win over Siena in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference match-up on Siena Field Friday afternoon. The Greyhounds improved to 6-5-2 overall and 4-0-0 in MAAC play. The Saints fall to 6-5-2 on the season and 3-1-1 in league action.
Day scored her first goal of the season early in the game, just under nine minutes for the 1-0 lead. Day scored when she blasted a shot from the right corner and it ricocheted off the left post and into the back of the net. Freshman Christina Gomez was credited with the assist.
At 36:30, the Saints tied the game at 1-1 when Chelsea Maguire took a pass from Amy Loughridge and got her shot past Loyola goalkeeper Brittany Henderson.
Less than a minute later Day responded with the game-winning goal. She took a pass from senior Courtney Arikian and sent another cross goal shot past the Siena keeper for the 2-1 score.
Neither team scored in the second half despite the 12 shots taken by Loyola and six by Siena.
Henderson stopped six shots while Siena's Patti Carroll recorded five saves.
The Greyhounds travel to Marist on Sunday, October 15 for a 1:00 game.
