Women's Soccer Falls To Marist On A Penalty Kick
Oct. 26, 2012
POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - The Loyola University Maryland women’s soccer team gave up a penalty kick in the second half of regulation Friday night, the only goal in a 1-0 loss to Marist College at Tenney Stadium.
The loss breaks the team's five-game unbeaten streak and drops the Greyhounds to 9-5-4 overall, 5-2-1 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. The Red Foxes left Friday night's game with a season record of 13-6, 7-1 MAAC.
Less than 13 minutes into the second half, Loyola was called for a handball inside the box. The Red Foxes’ Amanda Epstein took the penalty kick, posting the only goal of the evening, her sixth of the season.
“We fought a hard battle,” Katherine Remy Vettori said. “That penalty kick call was really a difficult call for us. We had a lot of chances, but I’m proud of the team’s effort.”
Defensively, the Greyhounds put up a fight and held Marist to only eight shots for the game, tying the Red Foxes’ lowest output of the year. In goal, junior Didi Haracic played all 90 minutes and finished the game with five saves.
For the game, the Greyhounds were outshot, 8-7, but they held a 6-3 advantage in corner kicks.
Loyola finishes the regular season on the road Sunday, against Siena College at 1 p.m.
