NORFOLK, VA -- Sophomore forward Angie Loy (Loysville, PA) picked up her second weekly honor from the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) by being named the conference Player of the Week after leading the third ranked Lady Monarch field hockey to a 1-0 overtime upset victory over #1 Maryland.
Loy's goal, just less than four minutes into the overtime session, gave the Lady Monarchs its second victory of the season against the top ranked Terps this season. Maryland suffered just its third loss of the season, with two of the defeats coming at the hands of the Lady Monarchs. After receiving a pass from junior Tiffany Snow (Escondido, CA) along the right side of the Maryland net, Loy hit the game-winner through the Terrapin keeper to the left corner of the goal for Old Dominion's fourth consecutive shutout. The Lady Monarchs have recorded seven shutouts all together in 2001.
Loy also played a key part in the Old Dominion defense on the week, helping the Lady Monarch to two shutouts, including a 2-0 victory over fellow CAA member, 11th ranked William and Mary. The victory gave head coach Beth Anders her 400th career win.
On the stat sheet, Loy is currently tied as the Lady Monarch's second leading scorer with 14 points on six goal and two assists. Over the last two years the second year Lady Monarch has accumulated 24 goals and five assists for 53 points.
Loy was awarded her first CAA Player of the Week award following play during the week of September 23rd. She served as a sparkplug in the Lady Monarch's 9-0 thrashing of Temple, igniting for eight points by netting three goals and assisting on two others. The eight points amassed by Loy ties the single-game high in the CAA this season.
The Lady Monarch field hockey team (11-3, 2-0 CAA) will meet North Carolina in a rematch of last year's NCAA Championship game on Wednesday, October 17th. Following their final road game of the year in Chapel Hill, the Lady Monarchs will return to Foreman Field to close out the 2001 regular season with a four-game homestand. On the schedule for this weekend includes conference rival James Madison and former CAA member American.
