With the win, the Greyhounds continue on an eight game win streak for an overall record of 11-3. The Eagles fall to 11-4-1 with the loss.
"Today was a great effort all around for our team," head coach Joe Mallia said. "We came ready to play. Our possession was great, our defensive pressure was great and we did well to finish our chances."

At 12:43, junior Naomi Daniels tallied her first of two goals when her shot was deflected of an American defender and into the goal for the 2-0 lead. The Greyhounds made it 3-0 when Carolyn Kennington got a corner kick to Arikian for the goal at 24:27. Daniels tallied her second goal late in the first half when Ali Andrzejewski fed her from behind at 42:19. Loyola held a 4-0 halftime lead as well as a 13-1 advantage in shots at the half.
Arikian scored the final goal of the game, her third, in the second half on a pass from Sroka in the 78th minute.
"I give our team alot of credit right now," Mallia said. "They are very focused on game day and ready to go. With that focus we are a tough team to beat."
The Greyhounds finished with a 26-4 advantage in shots and a 11-7 lead in corner kicks.
Starting keeper Kate Gilfillan made one save beforeErica Niemann came on and stopped two shots. For American, Doyle stopped six Loyola shots before Charlotte Manetta replaced her making three saves of her own.
