Haracic Sets Record As Women's Soccer Ties Lafayette, 3-3
Nov. 2, 2013
BALTIMORE - Senior Didi Haracic recorded her 85th save this season and became Loyola University Maryland’s all-time career saves leader, as the Greyhounds tied the Lafayette College Leopards, 3-3, in double-overtime Saturday evening for Senior Night.
Loyola ended the season 2-11-4 overall and 1-6-2 in the Patriot League. The Greyhounds finished ninth in the league, ahead of Lafayette, which closed out its season 5-10-2 and 1-7-1 in the Patriot League.
The Greyhounds recorded a season-best 18 shots against the Leopards, scoring a season high three goals in the double-overtime tie.
In the timespan of two minutes, both teams quickly put a combined three goals on the board, sparked by a Lafayette goal in the 24th minute. Allie Torru recorded the Leopard’s first goal from three yards out.
One minute later, the Greyhounds responded when Charlotte Miller found Rosy Hayes inside the box. Miller made a right wing cross to Hayes who was able to finish off the shot and put Loyola on the board.
Nearly 10 seconds later, Lafayette’s Alyssa Finelli made a pass on the far-side wing to Torru at the top of the box. Torru made a quick touch to Jaclyn Giordano, who finished off the play for the Leopard’s, 2-1, early lead.
The Greyhounds’ offense continued to push into the final minutes the first half, as freshman Maddie Boccio made a long cross to classmate Nicole Wojcik in the 45th minute. Wojcik shot the ball across her defender and the ball bounced off the post and into the back of the net. The Abingdon, Md., native recorded her first collegiate goal, as the Greyhounds tied the score entering the locker room.
Lafayette stretched its lead to 3-2, after Giordano scored her second goal of the contest. Avery Jackson passed the ball into the box, where Giordano beat both of her defenders to take a shot in the 61st minute.
Senior Katelyn McFadden scored the Greyhounds’ third goal of the night, marking the sixth and final goal of her career. Sophomore Riley Piechnick took Loyola’s throw-in in the 69th minute. McFadden chested the throw, and despite being surrounded by four Lafayette defenders, scored from the left wing 10 yards out.
That would be all the scoring in the contest, despite both teams recording a combined 11 shots in overtime.
Haracic tabbed five saves alone in the final 10 minutes of action. Her 315 saves is good enough for first in the program record books, passing Mary Clark who played for the Greyhounds from 1993-96. In her time, Clark recorded 310 saves as a Greyhound.
