San Francisco, CA - Loyola Marymount got a goal from senior midfielder Amanda Shellenberger at the 55:14 mark to secure a 1-0 shutout win against USF in West Coast Conference women's soccer action Sunday at Negoesco Stadium. USF (6-6-1, 0-3 WCC) had opportunities in both halves, but could not penetrate the defense of the Lions (5-7-1, 1-1 WCC).
The Sunday afternoon game turned into a Sunday evening game when the officials failed to show up for the 1:00 p.m. game. Coaches and officials decided to push the game back to a 5:00 p.m. start to keep from having to cancel and reschedule the game.
Loyola Marymount held a 12-8 edge in shots in the contest, including a 7-2 advantage in the first half, although the Dons actually spent most of the first 45 minutes in the Lion's end. San Francisco enjoyed a slight 6-5 shots lead in the second frame, but to no avail. Junior forward Meghan Daly was the only USF player to record more than one attempt and finished the contest with a pair of shots.
Junior goalkeeper Elizabeth Skhal collected the shutout victory for the Lions and made four saves. Sophomore goalkeeper Stephanie Beall suffered the loss for San Francisco and made four saves on the evening.
The Lions return to Sullivan Field on Friday, Oct. 26, when the host Santa Clara at 3:00 p.m.
