TITANS TOP LOYOLA
Ramblers fall 2-1
CHICAGO – Detroit scored once in each half to defeat Loyola 2-1 on Saturday.
“We were down 1-0 at the half, but things started to even out in the second half as we began to step up offensively,” said Loyola head coach Brendan Eitz. “Ryan Howe and Jake Savino really pressed the Titans and we started to look a lot better, we just couldn’t finish the opportunities that were created.”
A free kick in the 26th minute set the Titans up for their first goal as Adam Bedell placed a header in the top right corner of the net to give Detroit a 1-0 lead.
Patrick Soltys powered a ball across the face of the goal and into the net to extend the Titan’s lead, 2-0, in the 61st minute.
With the Titans looking to have control over the game, Ryan Howe took possession of the ball, dribbling through Detroit’s backline and earning a penalty kick in the 68th minute. James Howe took the kick, putting the Ramblers on the board, 2-1.
The loss brings Loyola to a 1-3-2 Horizon League record. The team takes a break from conference play on Wednesday, Oct. 31, when the Ramblers host Bradley at 7 p.m. CDT.
