Loyola's Evans deep-sixes Gilman

April 08, 1991|By Mike Farabaugh

News and notes: "We had our sharp moments, but the offense really wasn't on course," said Loyola attackman Mike Gately, downplaying his team's 9-2 season-opening victory over Gilman.

The No. 1-ranked Dons (1-0) visit Mount St. Joseph (0-3) tomorrow at 3:45.

Sharp or not against Gilman, the Dons got six goals from Billy Evans, who passed the credit to his teammates.

"I just tried to get open and they found me," said Evans, who roamed the perimeter at will against the Greyhounds defense that jammed the crease to stop Loyola's attack.

Gately, a junior who excelled in soccer and passed up a chance to play in the national ice hockey (midget) championships to play lacrosse, added a goal, as did Mike Boyle. C.C. Legator added a goal and an assist.

* A pair of Class 4A track and field powers met in Prince George's County last Thursday, with Old Mill sweeping Eleanor Roosevelt, the boys winning 72-65 and the girls romping by a 91-46 margin. Roosevelt won both state titles indoors and is the defending outdoor champion on both sides, but the boys lost star sprinter Shante Williams, who moved to California following the indoor championships.

Old Mill is young and dangerous. Freshmen and sophomores accounted for 75 1/2 of the 91 points it scored against Roosevelt.

* The temperatures warmed, but good pitching cooled Calvert Hall's hot bats for Saturday's Christian Brothers Tournament. The host Cardinals managed only one hit in bowing to Father Judge (Pa.), 4-0, in the semifinals. Bishop Walsh topped Calvert Hall, 5-4, in the consolation.

* Aberdeen's Byron Turner, a 270-pound All-Metro defensive football tackle, planned to announce his college plans today.
