Stonebraker nets game winner for Loyola [Soccer]

October 31, 2013

Tricia Stonebraker

The Loyola Chicago seniors are going to the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament for the first time, thanks to Tricia Stonebraker of Anchorage.

The senior midfielder delivered the game-winning goal in a 2-0 win over Evansville, clinching the team’s postseason berth on the final day of the regular season.

Stonebraker, of Service High fame, now has nine career goals – with seven of them winning a game or tying a game.

How does Loyola spell relief?

She is one of the greatest players in school history, just missing making the top 10 on the all-time list in games [77], goals [9], assists [8] and points [26].

This is a midfielder, mind you. She also plays defense and controls the ball with deft dribbling.

Stonebraker holds the school record for the latest game winner at the 107-minute, 48-second mark against Wright State in 2010.
