Goals From Saramago, Fawole Put Loyola Ahead Of Army West Point, 2-1
Sophomores Brian Saramago and Josh Fawole netted a pair of goals to push the Loyola University Maryland men’s soccer team ahead of Army West Point, 2-1, in front of a crowd of 1,324 on Saturday at Ridley Athletic Complex.
Loyola (6-4-1 overall, 3-1-0 Patriot League) took a 1-0 lead in the 33rd minute of play after Saramago headed a cross from Jake Campbell into the goal from seven yards out. Barry Sharifi had settled a throw in and touched it to Gabriel Carlsson who played it out wide to Campbell.
Sophomore Josh Fawole added to the Greyhounds’ lead late in the second half, netting the ball past Army goalkeeper Justin Stoll off a give-and-go from Sharifi.
The Black Knights (8-4-0, 2-2-0) threatened with a minute left on the clock as Zane Rojas sent a ball into the box that Alec Belcastro played off the post for a goal.
Army outshot Loyola, 11-9, and held an advantage in corner kicks, 5-4. Chase Vosvick had six saves in goal for the Greyhounds, four of which came in the first half.
The Greyhounds are back in action on Wednesday, Oct. 11 for an out-of-conference game against High Point University. The game will begin at 7 p.m. in North Carolina.
