Sortgatz found the back of the net from 20 yards out through traffic to give the Ramblers the win.

Valpo got on the scoreboard first at the 39:11 mark as Lori Moore (Dyer, Ind./Lake Central H.S.) took advantage of a defensive miscue and connected on her eighth goal of the season.

The Crusaders held the advantage at intermission, but the Ramblers tied the match just 2:35 into the second half. Katie Koning lifted a shot just over Danielle Guerra (Chesterton, Ind./Chesterton H.S.) for her third tally of the year.

Loyola outshot the Crusaders 20-11 for the match, holding a 10-3 advantage on net. Guerra made eight saves for the Brown and Gold, while Erica Pedini made two saves for the Ramblers.

Valpo (5-12-1) will return to action on Friday evening when they travel to Tulsa, Okla. to face Oakland in the Mid-Continent Conference Tournament semifinals.
