Women's Soccer Tops Rider, 4-2, in MAAC Semi-Finals
Nov. 7, 2003
LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ - Loyola freshman Carolyn Kennington tied the school record for goals in a season with the game-tying goal in Friday's Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference semi-final win over Rider, 4-2. Kennington has scored 11 goals so far this season, tying Becky Bieneman's record from 1999. The Greyhounds advance to the conference championship for the fifth season in a row.
Rider got one the board quickly in Friday's game with a breakaway goal by Sarah Arytale at 9:15. But Kennington would score to even up the score at 13:36 when Jeanetta McGettigan's initial shot was saved by Rider keeper Erin Wolleon but Wolleon lost control of the ball giving Kennington an open net. Kennington created the final goal of the first half when she directed a corner kick into fellow freshman Courtney Arikian's direction at 39:13. Arikian headed the ball into the goal amidst a group of Loyola and Rider players.
In the second half, Loyola earned would eventually become the game-winner when Kennington crossed the ball directly to McGettigan's feet at 50:25 for a 3-1 score. Later in the half, Arikian would score again and again on a pass from Kennington at 64:53 for a 4-1 game. Rider's Tami Coyle attempted to rally her troops with a goal at 69:06 off a cross from Artale and Jennifer Marcella but it would not be enough to overcome their deficit.
The Greyhounds outshot the Broncs 22-8 while Loyola keeper Kate Gilfillan made two saves in goal.
Loyola (11-8-1) will face Niagara University on Sunday, Nov. 9 at 1:00 in the final round of the MAAC Championships. Loyola students are welcome to join the bus traveling to Rider's campus for Sunday's game by meeting behind Newman Towers at 10:00.
