Hounds offense stymied by Terriers

While their defense played strong, the Loyola women’s soccer team’s offense couldn’t get in any sort of a rhythm on a rainy Saturday afternoon as they fell to Boston University, 1-0 in overtime.

Loyola only had two shots on goal as they struggled to find space against a stingy Boston U defense. Forward Jourdan Ziff, one of the heroes in the double-overtime victory over Navy, was left isolated as the forward, lacking support from her teammates. The team as a whole was forced to cede possession and had to stick with trying to counter-attack on their runs at the goal.

Boston U’s gameplan pressured Loyola and it led to sloppy passes by the Hounds, preventing them from building plays.

The Greyhounds’ best chances came late in the second half, but Hannah Cioleck wouldn’t be broken by the Greyhounds and as overtime went on they Hounds slowed down even more.

In the 10st minute BU’s Rachel Blauner capitalized on the passive play of the Greyhounds and rocketed a 30-yard shot into the back of the net.

Loyola will look to rebound from the loss after a week off when they host Lehigh next week at 7 pm.
