ANNAPOLIS, Md. - After a scoreless first half, the U.S. Naval Academy scored three times in the first 11 minutes of the second half Friday night, en route to a 4-0 Patriot League victory over Loyola University Maryland women's soccer at the Glenn Warner Soccer Facility.
Sumer Rahe made six first-half saves in goal for the Greyhounds (2-7-0 overall, 0-2-0 Patriot League), but Navy (9-3-0, 2-0-0) came out strong to start the second 45 minutes.
Karli Sottung put the Midshipmen on the board at 48:03, collecting a rebound and scoring in front of the net. Ash Fairow then made it a 2-0 game 5:16 later when she headed in a goal off assists by Cadie Higginson and Clare Macadam.
Meghan Hegarty added to the Navy lead less than three minutes later, driving in a header off a Megan Rogers volley. Eleanor Pratt finished the Midshipmen’s scoring with a penalty-kick goal at 77:20.
Rahe finished with eight saves for the Greyhounds.
