The Loyola men's soccer team absorbed its first loss of the season Saturday night when UMBC secured a 3-1 victory at Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore. It was a disappointing result, but it doesn't dilute the the Greyhounds's 5-1-1 start. "I think if you look to the start of our season, you've got to say that it's been a very good start," coach Mark Mettrick said Monday. "We're 5-1-1. We played some away games in very difficult places. So, I'm pleased with the start. "I think, overall, it's been a good beginning of the season for us. We realize now that it's all about the Patriot League and getting ready for our conference games.

Jon Cole knew who he wanted to serve as his best man. The former McDonogh and Virginia soccer star, now 33, had high school pals and college teammates who floated in and out of his life, but one guy was constant. His high school coach, Steve Nichols, went from mentor to father figure to big brother to best friend over 20 years. At the time, two summers ago, Nichols joked at Cole's request: "I'm 43 years old, why me?" Cole never thought twice. "He's like the brother I never had," said Cole, who married in June 2012.

Loyola's 3-1 loss to No. 21 UMBC Saturday night was somewhat curious due to the absence of several members of the team, including the Greyhounds' starting goalkeeper. Senior Thurman Van Riper will miss the remainder of the season after suffering serious facial injuries during the team's 2-1 decision against Princeton last Wednesday. "He was in a collision with a forward from Princeton late in the second half, and he got taken to [Maryland] Shock Trauma," coach Mark Mettrick said Monday.

The success that the Loyola men's soccer team enjoyed at the start of the 2013 season has become an almost unfamiliar memory for the program. After opening 5-0-1, the Greyhounds are 0-5-1 in their past six games. The team has not won since Sept. 18 when it edged Princeton, 2-1, and is 0-3-1 in the Patriot League. The only bright spot for Loyola was getting a point from a 1-1 double overtime tie against Colgate on Oct. 5. “Obviously, we're disappointed with the results, but it's about focusing on the next game and trying to win that one and trying to get momentum,” coach Mark Mettrick said Monday.

UMBC's Pete Caringi III and Loyola's Larry Ndjock can enjoy a certain status as being among the top three in Division I men's soccer in scoring goals. Caringi, a senior, is tied with Delaware freshman midfielder Guillermo Delgado for the national lead in goals (eight), while Ndjock, a sophomore, is tied with Cal State Northridge junior forward Sagi Lev-Ari with seven goals each. The flipside, however, is that both Caringi and Ndjock are known commodities in the soccer community, and opposing defenses will spend a fair amount of time studying the forwards' strengths and weaknesses.

After graduating five seniors and introducing 13 freshmen to the rigors of Division I men's soccer, Loyola would not have been faulted for experiencing a few growing pains in 2013. Instead, the team has sprinted to a 5-0-1 start and is enjoying its best opening since 2008, while also earning votes in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll and sitting just outside the top 25. Acknowledging that winning has boosted the Greyhounds' morale, coach Mark Mettrick pointed out that the team has benefited from sizable contributions from first-year players such as midfielder David Warburton, back Ryan Tuck and midfielder Laurin Vogel -- each of whom have started six games.

After opening the season with a six-game unbeaten streak, the Loyola men's soccer team is now headed the other way. The Greyhounds have dropped their last three games, losing, 3-1, to then-No. 21 UMBC on Sept. 21; 2-1 to Holy Cross last Saturday; and 3-0 to James Madison on Wednesday. Despite the losing skid, though, coach Mark Mettrick said he is not terribly concerned about the team's morale. “UMBC obviously played very well and deserved to get that result,” he said Friday as the team traveled to Hamilton, N.Y., before a game Saturday at Patriot League rival Colgate.

Both are expected to be ready for Saturday, even if they can't take part in today's scrimmage.
