This past weekend, Loyola soccer faced two tough tests, with the men playing against the number 20 team in the nation, Boston University, and the women playing their last home game of the season against Navy.
Both teams held strong, earning hard-fought ties, the men’s game ending 1-1, and the women’s game ending in a 0-0 shutout.
The ties are incredibly important for both teams, as it keeps a 4-game shutout streak alive for the women, and makes the men the first team to steal a point from Boston University in the Patriot League this season.
