LOS ANGELES, Calif. – LMU goalkeeper Allyssa Clark made
seven saves and the Lions built an early lead to shut out the
Lumberjacks, 3-0, Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. NAU dropped to
1-2-1 with the loss while Loyola Marymount improved to 2-1-0.
The home team got on the board with two goals in a three minute and 13 second span midway through the first half. In the 34th minute, Lion junior Julie Gallaudet broke down the left side and sent a cross into the Northern Arizona box. The feed found junior Gabrielle Parisella, who beat goalkeeper Tori Rocke, who was making her first start of the season, to give LMU the lead.
Just over three minutes later, the same pair of Lions connected again. This time, Gallaudet moved down the right side of the box and found Parisella six yards from the goal to extend the Loyola Marymount lead to 2-0.
The Lions didn’t let up in the second half, recording four early shots before adding an insurance goal in the 60th minute. Again it was Gallaudet setting up the score, as her lead pass found sophomore Erin Rementer for a breakaway. The forward dribbled in and beat Rocke to the far post to cement an insurmountable advantage for the Lions.
The Lumberjacks attempted two corner kicks and five shots through the remainder of regulation, but they couldn’t beat Clark as Loyola Marymount held on for the shutout.
NAU was out-shot for the third time in four games this season, posting the short end of an 18-10 shot total. Junior forward Brandy Carr led the team with three shots, putting two on goal, while Gallaudet took four shots in addition to her three assists. Rocke made five saves but allowed three goals in her season debut while Clark’s seven saves doomed the Lumberjack offense to its second blank sheet of the season. Only 10 combined fouls were called in the game, a far cry from the 24 fouls blown in NAU’s game Friday vs. Arizona.
NAU returns home to begin a five-match homestand next Friday at 7 p.m. against Oakland. The match will be part of the NAU Mountain Classic, which also welcomes Iowa and New Mexico to Flagstaff.
