Late Goal Lifts Monarchs Past Greyhounds
Sept. 2, 2007
NORFOLK, Va. - Old Dominion University junior Shavon Knight scored two goals, including the game-winner late in the second half, to give the Monarchs a 2-1 victory over visiting Loyola College on Sunday afternoon.
Knight put Old Dominion (1-0) on the board in the 14th minute with her first goal of the season. She took a long pass through the center of the field from freshman Ashley Kukura, dribbled a few times and scored.
Loyola (0-2) scored the equalizer shortly thereafter. Junior Theresa Ferraina corralled a loose ball at the top of the box, turned and drove a shot past Monarchs goalkeeper Lauren Tupman to tie the game at 1-1.
The score remained tied until the 71st minute when Old Dominion scored off a corner kick.
Janna Pearson dropped the corner kick into the middle of the box, and Saratu Dodo knocked a header toward the goal. Knight finished it off with a header of her own to give the game its final margin.
Tupman and Loyola goalkeeper Brittany Henderson each finished with four saves, and the teams both had 12 shots.
The Greyhounds continue on the road next weekend when they travel to the Hawthorne Suites Invitational in Blacksburg, Va. Loyola will play Wake Forest on Friday, September 7, at 12:30 p.m., the take on host Virginia Tech on Sunday, September 9, at 4 p.m.
