Today football games

November 28, 1991|By Sam Davis

No. 3 Loyola (7-2-1) vs. No. 5 Calvert Hall (9-1) Time: 10

Site: Memorial Stadium

Radio: WBAL (1090 AM)

Outlook: Loyola, which has won the past 2 games in the series and 5 of the past 6, leads the series, 33-30. There have been 8 ties. Both teams are 7-1 in the MSA A Conference. The winner of this game could finish tied for first-place if City (8-0 league) loses to Poly. Both teams have been led by defenses that have ranked among the area leaders all season. Loyola has allowed just 84 points in 10 games led by DBs Brad Hoag and Jeff Zielinski and DE Colin Brune. The Dons best DL, Grant Pivec who has missed 4 games with a knee injury, is questionable. Hoag is also the offensive leader. He has run for 1,144 yards and 7 TDs. QB Billy Evans has run for 279 yards and 9 TDs and thrown for 477 yards and 5 TDs.

No. 1 City (9-0) vs. No. 18 Poly (5-4) Time: 2

Site: Memorial Stadium

Radio: WBAL (1090 AM)

Outlook: Poly leads the nation's second-longest public high school football series, 50-46, and there have been 6 ties. City hasn't beaten Poly since 1988, a year after the Knights ended a 16-game losing streak to the Engineers, but City is the favorite this year. The Knights (8-0 in the league) can win the MSA A Conference outright with a victory instead of sharing the title with the Loyola-Calvert Hall winner. City last won the A Conference title in 1988. City has outscored its opponents, 268-49. QB Terrence Suber has passed for 961 yards and 12 TDs and run for 325 yards. RB Hari Lymon has 923 yards and 17 TDs behind some key blocks by FB Antonio Travers (500, 5). LBs Charles Ransom, Kenyunia Williams and DB Ron Wallace (6 interceptions) are the defensive leaders for coach George Petrides. Poly (4-4 league) is trying to avoid only its second non-winning season during Augie Waibel's 25 years as coach. The Engineers have struggled on offense throughout the season but defense has been outstanding. Poly's defense has not allowed a TD in 16 straight quarters, not including a TD in overtime against Calvert Hall. DE Steve Logan and DB Tramont Evans (7 interceptions) are the leaders. RB William Boyd and SE Ian Smith are keys when the Poly offense is clicking.
