Women's Soccer Advances to MAAC Championship Game
Nov. 9, 2007
POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. - Christina Gomez had a goal and assisted Colleen Kinealy's game-winning goal, as the Loyola College defeated Fairfield University, 2-0, in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Semifinals on Friday afternoon at Marist College.
The Greyhounds (9-5-5) advance to the MAAC Championship Game for a record 14th time. They will play the winner of Niagara University and the host Red Foxes on Sunday, November 11 at 12 p.m. The game will be broadcast live on ESPNU.
Loyola will attempt to win its MAAC-record ninth title on Sunday.
After a scoreless first half that saw Loyola outshoot the Stags, 7-4, the Greyhounds controlled the early tempo of the second half.
Lea Day then had a shot blocked by the Stags' defense in the 61st minute, but a Fairfield foul several seconds later gave the Greyhounds another offensive chance.
Gomez headed a ball to Kinealy who drove a header past Maron into the goal at the 61-minute, 35-second mark for the game's first goal.
The next several minutes saw no shots before Fairfield's Alex Caram had a shot saved by Loyola goalkeeper Brittany Henderson in the 76th minute. That shot started a sequence of two-straight corner kicks for the Stags, but they were unable to score.
After the second corner kick, Loyola won possession and took the ball into its offensive half.
Brynn McGrath took the ball from her center midfield position and fed Gomez who beat the Stags' defense and had a one-on-one opportunity against Maron.
Gomez converted the opportunity to give the Greyhounds a 2-0 advantage.
Fairfield would have three shot opportunitites from there, but two were saved by Henderson, and another was blocked by the Loyola defense.
Henderson, who on Thursday was named the 2007 MAAC Defensive Player of the Year, made four saves in the game.
