Senior forward Chris Bailey scored twice to defeat Loyola, 2-0, yesterday and extend Calvert Hall's unbeaten streak to eight games.

The No. 2 Cardinals (12-2-1 overall, 9-2-1 league) had won six straight until tying Mount St. Joseph on Saturday.

Calvert Hall was wary of No. 8 Loyola (8-4-1, 6-4). The Cardinals clearly remembered their last loss on Sept. 18, when the Dons scored off a couple of wind-blown corner kicks and shut them out.

Yesterday at Blakefield, however, there was no wind.

"Loyola always brings it to us," Bailey said about the often-physical game. "It's one of our biggest games no matter where they are in the standings. They always have a big crowd, so it's a tough place to play."

A scoreless first half didn't give either team's fans much to cheer about.

But Bailey's goal in the 53rd minute further silenced the Loyola crowd. Brian Schultz slotted a ball to Bailey on the left side, and Bailey challenged Loyola goalkeeper Akira Fitzgerald, who failed to make a sliding stop on a shot to the far post that found the net.

Bailey sealed the victory in the 63rd minute when he one-touched a loose ball off a missed clear at the top and center of the 18-yard box. Fitzgerald never had a chance to stop Bailey's blast.

"Loyola only had three league losses and would have gone ahead of us in the standings had they won, so this was an important game for us," said Calvert Hall coach Andy Moore. "Plus it would have given them two wins head-to-head against us. We responded and bounced back from a bad outing [Saturday], and we had everyone healthy for the first time since Labor Day. We're playing physical again."

Calvert Hall has four remaining league games, against Gilman, St. Paul's, John Carroll and Archbishop Curley.

No. 7 Fallston 4, Bel Air 1: Led by C.J. Cover, the visiting Cougars scored four goals in the second half to top the Bobcats.

Cover finished with two goals and an assist. Brandon Fisher and Nick Huland scored the Cougars' other goals.

Bobcats goalie Scott Eaton had 11 saves.

The win keeps the Cougars undefeated at 10-0 and 5-0 in the Chesapeake Division of the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference.

St. Paul's 2, Severn 1, OT: Meriel Colglazier scored the game-winning goal on a fast break three minutes into overtime to give the visiting Gators the win.
