Unranked Loyola stuns No. 1 Mount St. Joe

November 12, 1995|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Loyola coach Joe Brune stared at the Mount St. Joseph scoreboard, sighed heavily, and muttered, "This, I can't believe."

In a 37-21 victory moments earlier, Brune had watched his sophomore quarterback Brant Hall (135 yards rushing, 113 passing) lead his unranked Dons to a season-high point total, and defensive back Tim Nicholas help hold Maryland's top-ranked team below its 45-point average.

The win, the Dons' (5-4, 3-1) fifth straight after an 0-4 start, keeps them in the hunt for the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association's A Conference crown and ended Maryland's longest winning streak at 13.

* Poly 31, City 14: Dustin Jones threw two touchdown passes, as host Poly (4-6) scored 24 unanswered points in the third quarter to rally from a 14-7 halftime deficit.

It was the 107th annual meeting between the teams. Poly has won the last three and leads the overall series, 53-48-6.

Poly scored the first of three third quarter touchdowns when Dennis Waters recovered a botched City punt at the Knights' 5-yard-line and returned it to give Poly a 15-14 lead with 8:04 remaining.
