Soccer Falls to Loyola, 2-0

Youngstown, Ohio -- Loyola's Moriah Schwartz scored twice and the Youngstown State women's soccer team dropped a Horizon League match to the Ramblers, 2-0, on Sunday afternoon at Stambaugh Stadium.

The Guins fall to 7-6 overall and 2-2 in the Horizon League while Loyola improves to 7-7-2 overall and 2-2-1 in the league.

Schwartz gave the Ramblers a 1-0 lead at the 24:31 mark when a redirected ball found her and her shot found the lower-right corner of the net past a diving Jackie Podolsky.

The Penguins had a chance to tie the match early in the second half, but Loyola goalkeeper Monica Gonyo was stellar in the net.

After Gonya was called for a handball for punting outside of the penalty box, she made a leaping save of Jade Flory's direct.

On the ensuing cornerkick, Chelsey Haney's point-blank attempt was also denied by Gonyo.

Schwartz put the match away with her second goal of the match in the 72 minute. Mariah Vichich lofted a cross into the box that slipped through Podolsky's hands and Schwartz found the left side of the goal.

The Guin, who had just five shots, visit Valparaiso on Saturday, Oct. 20. The start time has been moved to 3 p.m. ET.
