No. 1 Calvert Hall tops No. 4 Loyola in soccer

Fall sports

September 19, 2006|By Glenn Graham | Glenn Graham,Sun reporter

Experience at both ends proved to be the difference for Calvert Hall's top-ranked boys soccer team yesterday against No. 4 Loyola.

A diving save by senior goalie Kyle Wittman kept the pressing Dons off the scoreboard early. And then junior forward Christian Barreiro neatly found the lower right corner after receiving a timely through ball from senior midfielder Eddie Tejeda late in the first half .

The goal proved to be the difference as the Cardinals beat the Dons, 1-0, in Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference play at Goucher College.

The Cardinals improved to 4-2-1 overall and 3-0-1 in the conference, while the Dons fell to 4-3 and 3-2 in league play.

Barreiro made no mistake with his chance from 10 yards. A nice run without the ball from Matt Tyrie helped give Tejeda the space needed to thread his pass to Barreiro.

"That last touch Christian had right before he hit the shot - he hit it just far enough to draw the keeper [Tim Peitsch] so he could put it by him. That's tremendous composure with a guy right on your back when you're chasing in to goal," Calvert Hall coach Andy Moore said.
