Rahe Named Patriot League Goalkeeper Of The Week
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Loyola University Maryland junior goalkeeper Sumer Rahe was named the Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Week on Monday after recording her third shutout of the season over the weekend.
Rahe led the Greyhounds to a 0-0 draw on Saturday against College of the Holy Cross, tying her career-best with eight saves in the process. She also had several other plays to pick up crosses in the box, thwarting attempts at shots by the Crusaders. Her eight saves matched the number she put up last month at the U.S. Naval Academy.
Holy Cross’ third shot of the game led to one of Rahe’s best plays in the contest. Jenna Barnes was bearing down on the goal for a one-on-one chance, but the Loyola goalkeeper came off her line to slide and deny the shot opportunity.
Rahe came up big at the end of regulation, saving a 19-yard shot from Emily George in which the Crusaders’ player had a clear look at the goal.
Early in the first overtime period, a Crusaders’ cross bounced into the box, but they could not get a shot before Rahe corralled the loose ball. She did the same thing four minutes thereafter to keep the game scoreless. With under a minute to go in the match, Holy Cross’ Ang Seslija took a 35-yard free kick that Rahe punched away.
Rahe and the Greyhounds are back in action on Monday night when they travel to face Delaware State in a 6 p.m. match at the DE Turf Sports Complex.
