Baltimore, Md. - The Loyola women's soccer team earned its fourth tie of the season and third in MAAC competition, playing Marist to a scoreless tie on Diane Geppi-Aikens Field on Sunday afternoon. The Greyhounds, now 4-0-3 in the MAAC, have not allowed a goal in conference play this season.

The Loyola defense, behind another stellar effort from goalkeeper Brittany Henderson, earned its seventh straight shutout in the tie. Overall, the Greyhounds now have eight shutouts this season and have not allowed a goal since their 2-1 win over Bucknell in late September.

Sunday's game was an even-played match from the start. The Greyhounds, who finished with a 10-6 shot advantage, played a back-and-forth game with Marist. The Red Foxes' best scoring opportunity of the game came in the 42nd minute when Henderson was drawn out of the goal. Henderson, however, made a great save in the box to keep the teams knotted at 0-0 at the half.

Loyola had the better of scoring chances in the second half, most notably Lea Day's left-footer in the 69th minute. Her shot sailed just outside the far post. The Greyhounds finished the game with five shots on goal, while Henderson made five saves herself in the defensive zone.

The Greyhounds, who are 7-5-4 overall, will play their final two regular season matches away from home. Loyola heads to Fairfield this Friday and will play at Iona next Sunday.
