Women's Soccer Drops 2-1 Contest At Lehigh
Oct. 12, 2013
BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Despite a season-high 17 shots, Loyola University Maryland women’s soccer dropped a 2-1 contest to Lehigh University at the Ulrich Sports Complex on Saturday evening.
For the eighth time this season, Loyola’s contest was decided by one goal, including its seventh one goal loss.
Lehigh (3-7-2, 1-4 Patriot League) put the first point on the board in the ninth minute, as Katie Centeno took a corner kick that sailed to the feet of Darby Dustin. Dustin sent a pass to Danielle Salans, who struck the ball into the top right corner of the goal.
For Loyola (1-9-3, 0-4-1), senior Melissa Lookingland found the first opportunity to score in the 24th minute, however the attempt was unable to find the back of the net.
Three minutes later, sophomore Rosy Hayes tabbed her first shot of the night, but Army’s Ashley Blanks recorded the save. Senior Chantal Celestin followed up the offensive surge with a shot that soared just above the cross bar.
To continue the offensive presence, sophomore Charlotte Miller recorder her first shot of the game, while Hayes took her second attempt of the first half.
Loyola’s defensive efforts did not go unnoticed, as Dustman took a shot attempt that was blocked by the Greyhounds’ defense in the 41st minute.
Throughout the first half, both teams recorded six shots and three on goal.
The Greyhounds began the second half with a quick offensive effort by Miller, but Blanks was there for the save. Back-to-back shots by rookies Maddie Boccio and Nicole Wahlig upped the shot count to 10 for Loyola.
In the 65th minute, Murphee Greeley’s penalty kick extended the Mountain Hawks lead by two.
After a series of Lehigh shot attempts, Miller created two-consecutive opportunities, capitalizing on the second shot and scoring the lone goal for the Greyhounds in the 78th minute.
Lehigh tried to counter the goal with its own, but senior goalkeeper Didi Haracic was there to make the final save and keep the game within one.
Haracic played all 90 minutes and recorded three saves for the Greyhounds.
Loyola held a 17-16 shot advantage, while both teams recorded two corner kicks.
The Greyhounds travel north to Massachusetts to take on fellow Patriot League-newcomer Boston University on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 2 p.m.
