Van Riper Posts Sixth Shutout As Loyola Wins Fifth-Straight Contest
Oct. 21, 2012
FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Junior goalkeeper Thurman Van Riper posted his sixth shutout of the season Sunday afternoon to lead the Loyola University Maryland men’s soccer team to a 3-0 win at Fairfield. Freshmen Dominic Marshall and Larry Ndjock, in addition to sophomore Joseph Cahalan, all scored for the Greyhounds to help Loyola to its fifth-straight victory.
Loyola (10-5-1, 5-1-0 MAAC) scored two quick goals early in the match, as Marshall took advantage of a misplayed ball by Fairfield’s goalkeeper, Michael O’Keeffe, and sent a shot into the empty net in the ninth minute.
Ndjock then gave the Greyhounds a 2-0 advantage in the 13th minute after sophomore Connor Thompson dribbled out of a double team and sent a pass to Ndjock, who put a shot into the back post.
The Greyhounds added another score in the 83rd minute when junior Stephen Dooley sent a pass from the left wing to Cahalan, who drove a low shot back to the near side for his first career goal.
In goal, Van Riper stopped six shots, including four in the first half, to post his third clean sheet in MAAC play.
With the win, Loyola reaches 10 wins for the 10th time under head coach Mark Mettrick and for the 39th time in program history.
The Greyhounds will look to extend their win streak next weekend as they host Saint Peter’s and Manhattan on Friday and Sunday, respectively. Sunday’s game against the Jaspers will mark the final home game of the season for Loyola with the Greyhounds’ five graduating seniors – Hector Arellano, Kevin Curran, Gerwyn Jones, Zach Tweddell and Gary Weisbaum – being honored before the start of the contest.
