Women's Soccer Drops Double-Overtime Home Opener To Temple
Sep 1, 2013
BALTIMORE - Erin Lafferty scored a goal with less than six minutes remaining in the second overtime, as Temple University edged past the Loyola University Maryland women's soccer team, 1-0, on Sunday afternoon at Ridley Athletic Complex.
The Owls (4-0) were able to end the game early in the second overtime period, as Lafferty's free kick sailed over the defense and struck the top right side of the goal post on its way into the net.
In goal, junior Colleen Folan stopped four shots, recording two in the first 45 minutes, one in the second half of regulation, and one during the first overtime.
The Greyhounds and Owls combined for 16 shots in the game, eight each, while Loyola held an 11-3 advantage in corner kicks.
Temple led the offensive effort in the first 45 minutes, recording four shots to the Greyhounds' one. Midway through the first half, sophomore Riley Piechnick headed an Owls' shot attempt out of the goal, but Paula Jurewicz was there to make a second attempt. The sophomore defender made a shot that cruised just above the cross bar.
Temple had a chance to score in the first overtime, as Taylor Trusky put an out of bounds ball into play, but Loyola's Rosy Hayes halted the scoring effort with a header 10 seconds remaining in overtime.
The Greyhounds take four days off to prepare for their next game at the University of Delaware. Loyola will take on the Blue Hens Friday, September 6, at 5:30 p.m.
