BALTIMORE, MD. – Larry Ndjock scored his sixth goal in five games and unbeaten Loyola defeated Campbell 2-0 Saturday night at the Ridley Athletic Complex.

Diego McQuestion added a second-half strike and set up the first goal, Stephen Dooley added two assists and the Greyhounds (4-0-1) dealt the Camels (1-3) their second-straight loss.

Dooley nearly put Loyola ahead in the sixth minute, but his shot was cleared off the Campbell goal line by Justin Franz.  Franz almost gave Campbell a 26th-minute advantage, but his header hit the cross bar.

Ndjock put Loyola ahead at 37:03 when Dooley crossed to McQuestion, who touched the ball to Ndjock in the box for what proved to be the decisive goal. 

McQuestion added a 58th-minute goal on a header off Dooley's free kick.

The hosts finished with a 16-11 edge in shots, but each team finished with 7 attempts on target.  Ethan Hall made four saves in the Camel nets and Thurman Van Riper had seven stops for the Retrievers.

Loyola ran its edge in the all-time series to 4-1-1 after a 2-0 Camel decision last year in Buies Creek.  Two years ago at Baltimore, the Greyhounds won 1-0 despite being outshot 30-5.

Ndjock, the pre-season Patriot League player of the year, scored his fourth game-winner of the season for Loyola, which has not allowed a goal in its last three outings.

The Camels return home to host second-ranked North Carolina Tuesday in a 7:00 p.m. kick-off.
