Women's Soccer Blanks Rider, 1-0
Oct. 13, 2007
Baltimore, Md. - Junior Theresa Ferraina scored the game-winning goal in the 61st minute as Loyola handed Rider a 1-nil defeat at Diane Geppi-Aikens Field on Saturday afternoon. For Ferraina, it was her team-leading sixth goal of the year, while for Loyola, the Greyhounds improve to 2-0-1 in the MAAC.
After a scoreless first half of play in which Loyola outshot Rider 5-0, the Greyhounds were able to gain the advantage on a series that began with Ferraina taking a corner from the near side. Her service landed in the box and bounced around before she settled about 20-yards out. Ferraina then sent a beautiful left-footed draw into the upper left corner of the cage to score her first game-winner of the season.
Goalkeeper Brittany Henderson picked up the shutout and the win with one save, giving her two shutouts for the season. The Greyhounds, who are now 5-5-2 overall, travel to Buffalo next weekend to take on Canisius and Niagara.
