Ensor Scores First Career Goal, But Eagles Top Women's Soccer
BALTIMORE - Junior Sarah Ensor scored her first collegiate goal Wednesday night, but Loyola University Maryland women’s soccer was edged by American University, 2-1.
The Eagles (2-13-0 overall, 1-6-0 Patriot League) scored their first goal in the 23rd minute when Kiara Flaherty tapped in a cross from just in front of the goal. Kyanna Alleyne carried the ball from midfield and sent a pass to Audrey Denkler on the wide left side. Denkler crossed a ball to Flaherty for the goal
Kiara Flaherty then added to the Eagles lead seven minutes later, knocking in a loose ball from 19 yards out.
The Greyhounds (3-11-1, 0-6-1) cut their deficit to one in the 73rd minute as junior Sarah Ensor scored her first collegiate goal, finishing a rebound from a Julianna Cabrera shot at the top of the box.
“I thought we deserved more from tonight’s game,” said Head Coach Naomi Meiburger. “I thought Julianna played well tonight making things happen, and it was great for Sarah to get her first goal. Ultimately, we have to get more chances and make things happen in the 18.”
Loyola outshot American 11-9, while American held an advantage in corner kicks, 3-2. Summer Rahe had four saves in goal for the Greyhounds.
The Greyhounds return to action on Saturday, October 21, when they face the Lehigh Mountain Hawks on the road in a 5 p.m. contest.
