Loyola Quick Hits (3-2-1, 0-0-0)

The Greyhounds have charted the best start to a season under head coach Naomi Meiburger and the best in the program since 2012, where the Greyhounds were 3-1-2 through the first six games.
Loyola dropped its first two matches of the 2016 season last weekend, falling to Cornell and Delaware in 1-0 losses.
Lily Andres and Sumer Rahe shared time in goal in both matches last weekend. Andres ended the weekend with two saves and Rahe with three, all against Delaware.
Six of seven Loyola goals this season have come from set pieces.
Loyola looks to chart its first victory over Monmouth, a 0-4-0 series that began in 1994.
This will be the second time that the Greyhounds will face Seton Hall, the first meeting in Loyola’s inaugural season in 1992 where Seton Hall came out with the win.
