“"EAST LANSING, Mich. -- The seventh-ranked Michigan State men's soccer team shut out Loyola Chicago, 1-0, on Sunday at DeMartin Stadium. Approximately 50 former Spartans were recognized at halftime for Alumni Day.

"The number of people here speaks volumes about the alumni support we have here," head coach Damon Rensing said. "To see them all come back and support Michigan State soccer and Michigan State University is special. I want to thank all of them for coming out."

The Spartans got the game's only goal when Jay Chapman headed a free kick from Jason Stacy in the 61st minute.

Zach Bennett picked up his fourth shutout of the year in five games, bringing him to 20 career shutouts, which ties him for the third-most shutouts in school history.

Michigan State began its offensive campaign early, firing five shots in the first 20 minutes, with chances from Ryan Keener, Stacy and Chapman.

The Spartans totaled eight shots during the first half with two on goal.

Just over 13 minutes into the second half, senior Fatai Alashe picked up a great chance off a corner kick from Stacy, but the shot was blocked inside the box.

"It was a gutsy performance,"Rensing said. "We had some attacking pieces missing with some injuries and everybody else stepped up."
