Two of the area's elite boys' soccer teams - Calvert Hall and Loyola - won and drew, respectively, on the road against two Philadelphia-area powers in the Hummel Classic yesterday.

Brett Pearman scored in the fourth minute of the second overtime to give the second-ranked Cardinals (4-0) a 2-1 victory over Penn Charter. And the No. 5 Dons (4-2-1) and Chestnut Hill played to a 1-1 tie, with Loyola's Matt Curran scoring with 10 seconds left in regulation to send the game into overtime.

Chestnut Hill, which got on the board on Eric Burke's long strike, needed several point-blank saves from James Romano to keep the game deadlocked.

Calvert Hall's game was as dramatic. The Cardinals scored the overtime goal when midfielder Ben Pardew flicked a header to Pearman, who split two defenders and dribbled past the goalkeeper before putting the ball home.

In the first half, the Cardinals struck first with Will Bach's tally in the 22nd minute, which Penn Charter's Jake Linus answered six minutes later.

Calvert Hall will take on Chestnut Hill in today's second game, while Loyola will play Penn Charter at 11 a.m.
