BALTIMORE, Md., Sept. 22, 2012 -- Loyola (4-3-1) scored three late goals en route to a 4-2 win over visiting James Madison (3-3-1) in men's soccer Saturday evening at Ridley Athletic Complex.

The Greyhounds ended JMU's two-game winning streak while stopping their own two-game losing streak.

With the score tied at 1-1 with under 20 minutes to play, Loyola scored three goals in a span of 6:06.  Stephen Dooley netted the first two goals, one at 73:01 and the second at 78:26, and assisted on the third, by Larry Ndjock at 79:07.

Loyola never trailed in the match, taking a 1-0 lead on a goal by Dominic Marshall off a pass from Dooley just 5:01 into the game.

The Dukes tied the game when senior Dale Robins-Bailey (Bollington, England/Tytherington) scored on a header off a corner kick by redshirt senior Christian McLaughlin (Herndon, Va./Herndon) in the 22nd minute.

JMU's second goal came in the closing minutes of the game, with senior Paul Wyatt (Modbury, England/Ivybridge) getting the score on a 10-yard shot.  McLaughlin started the play with a corner kick into the box, and sophomore Boyd Reid (Ajax, Ontario/Pickering) passed the ball to Wyatt.
