CHICAGO - In the 17th all-time meeting of the Red Line Rivalry, the DePaul women's soccer team (4-5) was edged by Loyola 2-0 on Sunday, snapping the Blue Demons' two-match winning streak.

A handball foul inside the box in the 16th minute led to Loyola's first goal of the contest.  The penalty shot taken by Jenna Szczesny landed in the right corner of the net to give the Ramblers the 1-0 lead.

In the 83rd minute, Loyola (7-3) added an insurance goal by Emily Lange to pull out the 2-0 victory.

With the win, Loyola now leads the all-time series with DePaul 9-7-1.

Head coach Erin Chastain reflected on the match, "Loyola is a good team having a good year.  They played hard and deserved the win.  We have a great opportunity to learn from the game and be ready for our BIG EAST opener against Seton Hall on Saturday."

Next, the Blue Demons return to Wish Field for a two-match homestand featuring BIG EAST rivals Seton Hall (Sept. 23) and Georgetown (Sept. 28).  Both matches will be broadcasted live on the BIG EAST Digital Network.
