MARIST WOMEN’S SOCCER FALLS IN FIRST GAME OF 2021 SEASON

Red Foxes Post 18 Shots On Goal But Can’t Score vs. Loyola (Md.)

BALTIMORE – The honor of playing the very first game of the 2021-22 sports season in the Hudson Valley Sports Report coverage area went to the Marist College women’s soccer team, which had its most shots on goal in two years.

But the Red Foxes couldn’t convert.

In both its first game in the fall and non-conference game in two years, the Marist women’s soccer program fired 18 shots but dropped a 1-0 contest to former MAAC rival Loyola Maryland on Thursday evening at the Ridley Athletic Complex.

It was the season opener for both teams.

Marist provided pressure all night, including 12 shots in the second half. However, Preseason All-Patriot League goalkeeper Paige Sim totaled six saves to keep the Red Foxes off the scoreboard.

Sophomore forward Amanda Caldarelli paced Marist with four shots, while junior forward Brooke Cergol, sophomore forward Bridget Dudziec, and freshman forward Christina Layden had three shots each.

Loyola’s Kelly Hutton came off the bench to tally the game’s lone goal, as Grace DenBleyker provided the assist.

The Red Foxes trek down Route 9 for a date with Army West Point on Thursday, August 26 at 6 p.m.
