Virginia Women's Soccer Downs Loyola, 2-1
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Senior midfielder Jennifer Rawlings (Fayetteville, Ga.) scored a goal and an assist as the sixth-ranked University of Virginia women's soccer team posted a 2-1 victory over Loyola (Md.) at Kloeckner Stadium. The Cavaliers outshot the Greyhounds 12-3 in the game, while holding a 9-2 advantage in corner kicks. Virginia improves to 11-1-2 on the year with the victory, while Loyola falls to 9-4-2.
The Cavaliers opened the scoring at the 32:51 mark on a goal by Rawlings. Senior forward Tania Jovanovic (Colesville, Md.) was fouled in the penalty box to give Virginia a penalty shot, which Rawlings put into the upper left corner. UVa increased the lead to 2-0 midway through the second half on a goal by freshman midfielder Katie Tracy (Richmond, Va.) at 68:33. Rawlings took a corner kick from the right side, which Tracy headed into the net from four yards out at the near post.
Loyola cut the Cavalier lead to 2-1 at the 78:48 mark. Jamie DeSoto played the ball to Maureen Hoyt above the right side of the box, where Hoyt blasted a shot into the goal from 22 yards away. The Greyhounds had two good scoring chances in the final 10 minutes, but UVa senior goalkeeper Brit Swenberg (Durham, Ga.) made a pair of saves to preserve the victory.
Virginia will return to action this Saturday, Oct. 18, when it plays host to Florida State in a 7:00 p.m. game.
