Women's Soccer Closes Non-Conference Schedule With 1-1 Tie
Sept. 24, 2013
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Loyola University Maryland women’s soccer team rallied back to tie the George Washington Colonials, 1-1, Tuesday evening in Washington, D.C. The matchup marked the final non-conference game of the season for the Greyhounds.
Rookie Maddie Boccio scored for Loyola (1-6-2, 0-1 PL) in the 77nd minute, while an own goal by the Greyhounds tallied the lone point for George Washington (2-2-3).
“I’m proud of our performance today,” said Head Coach Katherine Remy Vettori. “Defensively we stayed organized, and I believe that is what helped with today’s outcome.”
In the 16th minute, George Washington took a free kick from outside the box. The ball sailed into the air and a number of players got a head on it. When the ball finally reached the turf, it bounced off a defender’s leg and rolled into the left side of the goal.
Less than two minutes later, senior Melissa Lookingland and freshman Nicole Wojcik gave Loyola back-to-back opportunities to score, but Lookingland’s shot went wide and Wojick’s shot was saved by Colonials’ goalkeeper Nicole Ulrick.
Coming back from the half, redshirt senior Katelyn McFadden gave Loyola the first opportunity to score, but both shots were unable to find the back of the net.
The Greyhounds continued to pressure offensively before they were able to break through with a goal from Boccio in the 77nd minute. The freshman forward took a pass from classmate Morgan Crable and dribbled past three Colonial defenders for her first career goal and the 1-1 tie.
Despite a combined four shots during both overtime periods, neither team was able to score in the final 20 minutes.
Throughout the game, the Colonials held a 19-8 shot advantage, while both teams recorded five shots on goal.
Didi Haracic played 110 minutes in goal for the Greyhounds, recording four saves in the final non-conference match of her career.
Loyola continues its three-game road swing on Saturday, Sept. 28. The Greyhounds will compete in their second Patriot League game of the season, taking on the Colgate Raiders at 4 p.m.
