Terriers Get Past Women's Soccer, 3-0, Saturday
Aug. 27, 2011
BOSTON, Mass. - Preseason America East favorite, Boston University, defeated Loyola University Maryland, 3-0, in rainy and wet conditions on Saturday afternoon at Nickerson Field in Boston, Mass.
Freshman Taylor Krebs' goal in the 24th minute of play proved to be the difference in the contest as the Terriers (3-0-1) improved to 1-0-1 all time against the Greyhounds (0-4-0).
The Terriers, who are receiving votes in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America top 25 poll, broke through against the Loyola defense when Brittany Heist lobbed a pass over the top of the Greyhound backline to Krebs, who settled the ball in the box and beat keeper Didi Haracic low to the right side.
Loyola generated opportunities to equalize late in the first half, playing the ball through reigning MAAC Co-Offensive Player of the Year, Nichole Schiro. The junior took all three shots in the game for the Greyhounds.
The start of the game was delayed 45 minutes due to lightning and poor field conditions. It continued to rain hard throughout the match, making for a slick field surface.
Loyola had a quality opportunity to score in the opening moments of the contest, when Lauren Norcia sent in a corner kick that found Schiro in the middle of the box, but her shot was blocked by a Terrier defender.
The game remained at 1-0 until Jess Luscinski, the reigning America East Striker of the Year, tacked on a second goal for the Terriers in the 68th minute. Luscinski was able to control a bouncing ball on the right side box and fire a shot with her right foot for the unassisted tally.
Brea Hewitt rounded out the scoring in the 83rd minute on an assist from Lauren Donnelly to make it 3-0.
Haracic was strong in net once again for the Greyhounds, making a season-high nine saves including six in the second half. Norcia and Kelsey Rene also played well on the defensive end. Freshman Lindsay LeSavage made her collegiate debut in the game for the Greyhounds.
Loyola returns home next weekend for a pair of contests as the Greyhounds host High Point on Friday, Sept. 2, at 7 p.m. and Saint Louis on Sunday, Sept. 4 at 1 p.m. at Ridley Athletic Complex
