October 07, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

With a shutout streak on the line and its coach closing in on a milestone, No. 2 Archbishop Curley left nothing to chance yesterday against John Carroll.

Danny Colosino scored two goals, freshman Santino Quaranta had a goal and three assists, and Steve Novak and Brandon Scarfield each had a goal and an assist as the Friars cruised to a 7-0 victory, establishing a school-record 10th shutout in as many games and capturing the 150th career win for 12th-year coach Pep Perrella.

Curley, ranked No. 7, nationally, improved to 7-0 in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association's A Conference, and has outscored its opponents, 44-0.

The Friars eclipsed the mark established by Perrella's 1993 championship team that was 16-0-1 with nine shutouts.

Next up for the Friars is tomorrow's rematch with No. 3 McDonogh -- an earlier 2-0 loser to Curley -- but which is 6-1 in the league, 13-2-1 overall, has nine shutouts and has won 10 straight games.

Curley's Marco Angelini scored his team-high ninth goal and Brandon Quaranta had a goal as the Friars led 5-0 at halftime.

Sweeper Steve Althoff and defenders Mike Lynch and Matt Moneymaker again were stalwarts as Perrella played both keepers, Adam Jackson and C. J. Nichols.

"Coach took most of the starters out early in the second half, but he left Althoff in to finish it off," said Novak, a stopper who &L scored his third game-winning goal.

"We asked him before the game if we could do that -- have one of us finish the game -- since it was something we'd worked all year to accomplish."

No. 3 McDonogh 2, Spalding 1: The third-ranked Eagles may have gotten caught looking past a struggling squad from Spalding (2-5, 5-7), requiring two second-half goals to break a ZTC scoreless halftime tie.

No. 1 River Hill 2, No. 5 Oakland Mills 0: Randal Brown scored the game-winner from 18 yards three minutes into the game, and Greg Hinkle padded the victory in the 46th minute as the Hawks avenged their only loss of last season.

River Hill improved to 3-0 in Howard County (8-0 overall), stretching its winning streak to 17 games. Oakland Mills slipped to 4-1, 7-1.

No. 10 Loyola 2, No. 8 Calvert Hall 1, 2OT: A second-half goal by Marcus Johnson tied the game, and Justin Januszkiewicz's team-leading ninth goal of the season won it in the second overtime as the 10th-ranked Dons overcame a first-half goal by ++ Ryan Tolson of the eighth-ranked Cardinals.

Loyola (5-2, 11-2) avenged a controversial loss from a year ago when the Cardinals used a penalty kick for a 1-0 victory.

Calvert Hall, the defending MIAA A Conference champ, is 3-3, 7-7 under first-year coach Andy Moore, whose lone returning starter is Steve Adams.
