Just for kicks, Perry Hall's Bloom remains on pace to set record @


October 19, 1994|By LEM SATTERFIELD

Jason Bloom's 44-yard field goal with 1:50 remaining not only sealed Perry Hall's 15-12 victory over Woodlawn Saturday, it also brought him within two field goals of the public school state record for a career (12) set by Old Mill's Steve Oliver in 1991.

Oliver kicked nine field goals as a senior, one shy of the single-season record held by Churchill's Eric Jacobi (1976) and Seneca Valley's John Duke (1987).

Bloom (6 foot 4, 175), who is 10-for-16 for his career (4-of-7 this year), had a career-best 45-yarder last year that has him tied for fourth on the all-time distance list.

The leader is believed to be Dunbar's Barry Hagans, who kicked a 52-yarder in 1983.

This year, Bloom had a 40-yarder against Woodlawn, a game-winning 19-yarder with eight seconds left in a 10-9 win over Parkville, and a 43-yarder in a loss to Randallstown.

Speaking of records . . .

McDonogh quarterback Bobby Sabelhaus, who has passed for 1,243 and 10 touchdowns this year, has 43 career passing touchdowns and 5,076 yards for his career -- 402 shy of the state passing yardage record set in 1969 by John Carroll graduate Al Neville.

Sabelhaus has eliminated Notre Dame from his list of colleges.

He has narrowed his choices to Boston College, Ohio State, Florida, Florida State, Clemson, Maryland, Duke and Michigan.

"[McDonogh coach Dom Damico] did a survey of the schools recruiting Bobby to see where he stands, and found that Notre Dame wants a Charlie Ward-type," said Bobby Sabelhaus Sr.

"Bobby's a drop-back, pro-style, run-and-shoot type. We want a program that wants to throw the ball a lot, so Notre Dame is out."

Slowed, but unstopped

No. 1 Patterson (6-0) and No. 2 Dunbar (5-0) remain the football teams that have allowed the state's fewest amount of points.

Patterson has outscored its opponents, 216-6, with five shutouts, and Dunbar has a 182-6 advantage with four shutouts.

Dunbar allowed its only touchdown in a 26-6 victory over No. 3 Poly (5-1).

Patterson was the state's only unscored-upon team until yielding a fourth-period touchdown in last week's 34-6 win over Carver.

Patterson's 23 shutout quarters are one shy of Coach Pete Pompey's 1992 Dunbar team, whose 24 quarters were fourth on the all-time list, and whose six straight shutouts are tied for second all-time.

Loyola scores late

Loyola's 8-3-1 soccer team has scored 12 of its 25 goals in the final five minutes of the game, including four in overtime where the Dons are 3-0-1.

The Dons' only losses have come against co-No. 1 Fallston, No. 3 Curley and No. 4 Calvert Hall.

The Dons, who visit Calvert Hall tomorrow at 4 p.m., are 6-1 in their last seven games, three of which were won in overtime with two others being won in the last five minutes of regulation.
