MOST COMMENTED

Loyola is located in Baltimore, one of the nation's oldest soccer hotbeds, but the Greyhounds have been led in their unbeaten campaign by a trio of imports -- Serbian keeper Milos Kocic and English strikers Phil Bannister and Jamie Darvill.

Kocic, a senior, has seven shutouts for the 14-0-1 Greyhounds, who lead the nation with a 23-game unbeaten streak dating back to the 2007 season.

Kocic's youth was spent avoiding bombs dropped during the NATO bombing of Serbia. He came to the United States to attend St. John's but moved down the East Coast to Loyola, where he has thrived.

At 6-foot-4, Kocic is a dominating presence in goal and might attract some interest from MLS teams.

Bannister and Darvill are underclassmen drawn to Loyola by its English coach Mark Mettrick, the former Hartwick star.

Bannister, a sophomore, scored two goals and added an assist in Loyola's 4-2 win over Iona on Friday for his third five-point game in the team's last four matches.

Darvill, a junior, leads the Greyhounds with 10 goals and eight assist for 28 points.

Bannister and Darville are part of a U.K. contingent that includes four other starters.
