After going down 1-0 off a Haverford goal in the 11th minute, the Blue Jays answered with a penalty kick goal from Van de Loo in the 39th minute. In the second half, Van de Loo put her fifth goal of the season in the net off an assist from sophomore Maryalice McKenna to give Hopkins the 2-1 edge.

ST. LOUIS -- Senior Jessica Johnson scored a goal and had an assist to lead No. 3 Washington (Mo.) to a 2-1 win against No. 14 Carnegie Mellon on Saturday afternoon at Francis Field.
Washington improves to 11-1 overall and moves into sole possession of first place in the University Athletic Association (UAA) standings with a 2-0 mark, while Carnegie Mellon falls to 6-2-2, 0-1-1 in the UAA.
The Bears came out firing as Johnson scored on the Bears’ third shot attempt in the opening 4:10 to make it 1-0. She took a pass from sophomore Olivia Lillegraven and finished the play with a shot to the far corner for her fifth goal of the year.
It remained a one-goal game until the 43rd minute, when Johnson made a nice pass to junior Lillie Toaspern who finished with a shot to the far corner. The goal for Toaspern was her seventh of the season and 26th of her career. The Tartans answered right back with a goal just before half at when Anna Vonderhaar scored from 30 yards out that snuck over the head of sophomore goalkeeper Amy French to make it 2-1.
Washington U. outshot Carnegie Mellon 9-8 in the opening half, and French made three saves for Washington U.
The Bears wore down a tired Carnegie Mellon squad in the second half, outshooting the Tartans 12-5. Freshman Katie Chandler nearly gave the Bears a two-goal lead at the 74:54 mark when her shot from 20 yards out went off the crossbar. Just 12 seconds later, junior Anna Zambricki had a golden opportunity with an open net but her header went over the goal.
French made six saves and picked up the win in goal improving to 10-1. Anna Albi (45 minutes, two goals against, three saves) and Katie Liston (45 minutes, three saves) split time in goal for Carnegie Mellon, which had its six-game unbeaten streak snapped with the loss.
No. 5 William Smith 1, Union (N.Y.) 0
GENEVA, N.Y. -- William Smith topped visiting Union (N.Y.) 1-0 in a Liberty League match played on Cozzens Field Saturday afternoon. With their 10th consecutive win, the Herons improve to 10-1-0 and are 4-0-0 in conference play. Union falls to 6-4-0 and 4-2-0 in the Liberty League.
Junior Brenna Kincaid scored the lone goal of the game. Senior goalie Chelsea Dunay played all 90 minutes in goal for the Herons and made five saves to secure her sixth shutout this season.
At 13:42 into the game, junior Dineo Mmutla pushed a short pass to Kincaid, who then fired from about 35 yards out. Her shot went just into the top left corner of the goal. It was Kincaid's first goal this season.
The Herons came very close to scoring on a number of other occasions. William Smith held an 18-7 advantage in shots and a 4-1 lead in corners.
With 10:09 left in the first half, first-year Kara Shue banged a shot off the crossbar. With 11:37 left in the game, first-year Evie Manning sent a cross to classmate MacKenzie Smith.

No. 6 Ithaca 3, Elmira 0
ELMIRA, N.Y. -- Sixth-ranked Ithaca (10-1-0, 4-0-0 E8) defeated Elmira (3-7-1, 1-2-1 E8) on Saturday afternoon, dropping the Soaring Eagles by a score of 3-0 at Campus Field. Sophomore Kelsey King scored once for the Bombers, while senior Anna Gray added two goals in the victory.

King got the Bombers on the board first, knocking home a rebound after a shot that hit post by senior Ellyn Grant-Keane. King's goal a little more than 10 minutes into the first half marked her team-leading eighth goal of the season, giving Ithaca a 1-0 lead.
The Bombers closed out the first half with two consecutive tallies from Gray in the 31st and 40th minutes, netting both of her goals on free kicks. Gray's offensive output marked her first two-goal game since Sept. 20, 2011, a 4-1 win against Cortland.
Ithaca's three-goal outburst in the opening half would be all the Bombers would need. Elmira was held without a shot on goal in the second frame, giving the Bombers their eighth shutout of the season.
No. 7 Messiah vs. Elizabethtown - Postponed
ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. -- The game between Messiah and Elizabethtown was postponed due to weather. It has been rescheduled for Thursday, Oct. 17.
No. 8 Emory 2, Chicago 0
CHICAGO -- Emory junior Jennifer Grant scored her first goal of the season to give the team a lead in the second half, and the Eagles' defense recorded its fifth clean sheet of the campaign, as eighth-ranked Emory fought its way to a 2-0 victory at Chicago on Saturday.
With the win, Emory raised its record to 8-3-1 for the year and to 1-1-0 in University Athletic Association (UAA) matches. The Eagles now have three points in conference play, and after two games, sit in sole possession of third place, three points behind Washington (Mo.) and one back of Brandeis. Chicago, coming off a 1-1 tie against top-ranked Wheaton (Ill.) earlier in the week, dropped to 7-3-2 overall on the year and to 0-1-1 in UAA matches.
After a scoreless first half, the Eagles would finally break through in the 52nd minute, when Grant scored her first goal of the campaign. After her initial shot on goal was saved by Chicago keeper Jacinda Reid, she collected her own rebound, and placed it into the back of the net, putting Emory on top 1-0.
Emory would add to its lead in the final seconds, when sophomore Jordan Morell notched her second goal of the campaign with just six seconds left to play in the contest, off junior Karina Rodriguez's team-leading fourth assist of the year.
The Eagles outshot the Maroons 28-10 in the game, including an 11-4 edge in shots on goal during the contest.
Sophomore goalkeeper Liz Arnold played the entirety of the game in goal, recording her second shutout of the year in the process. She turned away all four shots on goal she faced during the game, improving to 7-2-1 with a 0.53 goals-against average and an .839 save percentage.
Also of note from Saturday's game was the start made by senior midfielder Clare Mullins, the 78th of her career, to break the record of former Eagle Amy Williams (1994-97). Mullins, who has started every Emory game during her career, is now just three games shy of the school record for games played. She would finish the day with a game-high eight shots, matching her single-game career best.
No. 9 Montclair State 3, Rowan 1
MONTCLAIR, N.J. -- Junior forward Francesca Gibson scored twice as No. 9 Montclair State remained unbeaten, posting its 13th consecutive win as the Red Hawks downed Rowan 3-1 at MSU Soccer Park on Saturday.
Junior Kerry Glynn had a goal for the Red Hawks, who are now 13-0 on the season, 5-0 in the NJAC as they defeated the Profs for the first time since 2004, a span of eight games. Montclair was 0-6-2 during that time, including a 2-0 loss last season in Glassboro, Montclair's only NJAC defeat of the year.
All of the scoring in the game came after halftime as Gibson put the Red Hawks on the board with the first of her two tallies. Sophomore Martina Landeka served a ball through to Gibson who banged in the pass inside the near post at the 47:54 mark giving MSU a 1-0 lead.
Glynn extended the lead to 2-0 in the 65th minute as she dribbled past two defenders before putting a shot to the far post for her fourth goal. Gibson then made it a three-goal advantage with 15:33 to play knocking in a shot from 20 yards out. It was her seventh of the year for Gibson, who registered her ninth career multi-goal contest.
Rowan would finally break through with 4:41 to play on a goal by Tiffany Kelly. It was only the second goal the Red Hawks have allowed this season and the first during regular play. MSU gave up a penalty kick goal in its win at William Paterson on September 25.
Junior Gina Policastro made one save to pick up the victory as Montclair State outshot Rowan 16-10.
No. 10 Misericordia 5, Manhattanville 0
DALLAS, Pa. -- Megan Lannigan scored a pair of goals and Misericordia used a big second half to defeat Manhattanville 5-0 on Saturday afternoon at Mangelsdorf Field.
Alyssa Mocion, Meghan Antrim and Alyssa Manno all added goals for the Cougars while Megan Mahoney, Erin McGreal and Nicolette Ruffler had assists.
Lannigan got the Cougars on the board late in the first half when Mahoney crossed a ball from the right flank and Lannigan one-timed it home 33:50. She made it 2-0 early in the second half off a feed from McGreal, who played a ball from the right wing, Lannigan settled and slotted past a diving Manhattanville goalkeeper inside the right post at 58:45. Just five minutes later, Ruffler carried the ball from midfield and found Mocion who turned and fired a shot from 20 yards out to make it 3-0.
After several close chances, Meghan Antrim found the back of the net at 75:23. Antrim collected a loose ball and ripped a shot from 25 yards out inside the left post to make it 4-0.
