Live Stats Next Game: “We didn’t put our best foot forward tonight especially conceding early in the game against a very good team,” said head coach Gareth Smith. “This is not an easy place to play and Loyola showed why they are ranked. Tonight we were exposed in areas that we need to grow and improve and will need to regroup quickly in preparation for Tuesday game against Bradley. Hopefully we can get a few of our starters back and be able to put our strongest lineup out more consistently as this will help us tighten up on some of the areas we were lacking tonight.” Drake returns to Des Moines to host Bradley on Oct. 11 with first kick scheduled for 7 p.m.Print Friendly Versionlast_img
