Women's Soccer Falls to No. 22 Villanova, 1-0
Aug. 31, 2004
Baltimore, Md. - No. 22 Villanova scored in the first ten minutes of play to defeat Loyola 1-0 in women's soccer action on Alumnae Field Tuesday afternoon. The Greyhounds fall to 1-1 on the season with the loss while the Wildcats improve to 2-0.
Both teams played extremely physical throughout the entire 90 minutes but Villanova was able to get on the board early to seal the win. Kaley Guthrie scored 7:43 into the game after she rebound a shot by Erica Stewart. Stewart's shot was saved by Loyola keeper Erica Niemann but the ball bounced was deflected off the save, bounced off the cross bar and landed directly in front of Guthrie.
The Greyhounds, who outshot the Wildcats16-8, had several chances to score but were unable to capitalize on them. Villanova's Jillian Loyden stopped nine of Loyola's shots while Niemann played solid in the cage for the Greyhounds with five saves.
Loyola also held an advantage on corner kicks, 10-2 with eight coming in the second half.
"Today was a great effort for our team," head coach Joe Mallia said. "As a program we talk about being able to compete with top 25 teams and I felt we achieved that today. The result is unfortunate but I tip my hat to Villanova. We respect them as a program, they always find a way to get it done as they showed today."
The Greyhounds travel to the Lone Star State for their next two contests, facing Texas State on Friday, September 3 and Texas on Sunday September 5.
