2008 Schedule

BALTIMORE - The Loyola College women's soccer team will begin defense of its 2007 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship in August when the Greyhounds open their 17th season of competition, Head Coach Katherine Vettori announced today.

Loyola, which finished the 2007 campaign with a 10-6-5 overall record, begin the 2008 season with a rematch from the first round of last year's NCAA College Cup on August 22. The Greyhounds will return to Charlottesville, Va., to take on Virginia, which defeated Loyola, 4-1. The meeting will be the third all-time and second in the regular-season between the schools.

The Greyhounds return to Baltimore to open their home schedule on August 31 against Old Dominion.

Following a trip up Interstate 95 on September 5-7, for two games at the Villanova Tournament, the Greyhounds host Virginia Commonwealth and Indiana on September 12 and 14, respectively.

The games will be the first-ever between Loyola and the two schools, and the match versus the Hoosiers will be the Greyhounds third against a team from the Big 10 Conference. Last season, Indiana made its first trip to the third round of the NCAA College Cup where it lost to Duke, 2-0.

After a September 21 trip to Bucknell in a re-match of a 2-1 Loyola victory last season, the Greyhounds will host Villanova and American on September 26 and 28 in the Greyhounds final regular-season non-conference games of 2008.

Loyola begins MAAC play on October 3 with a home game against Iona. Siena will host the MAAC Championships in Loudonville, N.Y., November 7-9.

Game times will be posted at a later date on loyolagreyhounds.com, and all schedule information is subject to change.
