Men's Soccer Remains Unbeaten With 2-0 Win Over Campbell
Sept. 14, 2013
BALTIMORE - The Loyola University Maryland men's soccer team used goals from sophomore Larry Ndjock and senior Diego McQuestion to earn a 2-0 victory over Campbell Saturday evening at Ridley Athletic Complex.
With the win, the Greyhounds move to 4-0-1 this season, marking the sixth time in school Division I history (since 1982) that Loyola has been unbeaten through its first five contests, while the loss drops the Fighting Camels to 1-3-0.
The shutout is also Loyola's third-straight clean sheet, running senior goalkeeper Thurman Van Riper's consecutive-shutout minutes to 187.
Loyola got its first score in the 38th minute when senior Stephen Dooley beat a defender to the end line, where he kept the ball alive before sending a cross into the 6-yard box. Senior Diego McQuestion fought off a scramble and tapped the ball to Ndjock, who poked it in from close range. The goal marks Ndjock's sixth this year, while it is also the fourth-straight game he has scored in.
The Greyhounds added an insurance goal in the 56th minute when Ndjock was fouled on the right side. Dooley sailed the free kick into the box where McQuestion headed the ball into the top right corner for his third career goal, and first since 2011.
Throughout the game, Loyola outshot Campbell, 16-11, and had a 10-2 advantage in corners.
In goal, Van Riper stopped seven shots in earning his ninth full-game shutout win.
Loyola will remain home for three more games. Next week, the Greyhounds will host Princeton on Wednesday and local-rival UMBC on Saturday. Both matches are scheduled for 7 p.m.
