The matchup yesterday between No. 7 Calvert Hall and No. 3 Archbishop Curley was not only crucial to the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference standings, but meant another year's bragging rights for the winner and generations of alumni.

The two teams played for what is now called the Bernard Reif Alumni Cup in honor of Curley's former coach, whose son, Chris, was an All-Metro Player of the Year and an All-American at Calvert Hall. Chris Weaver and Cesar Ramos each scored a second-half goal to lead the host Friars (4-2 overall, 1-1 MIAA) to a 2-0 victory.

"It's big. I pass on e-mails to the players that I get from alum about the game," Curley coach Barry Stitz said. The teams played a conservative, scoreless first half. Play opened up in the second half and the Friars scored when Mikias Teketele back-heeled the ball to Weaver, who scored from the top of the penalty area with 25:56 left.

The Friars had trouble finishing in their first two games of the season, but it appears they finally found their scoring touch with victories over No. 5 Perry Hall, 2-0, and Patapsco, 7-0, over the weekend,

Calvert Hall (1-1-2, 1-1-2) received three yellow cards for hard fouls. Cardinals coach Andy Moore said his team has to finish its scoring chances better.

"I felt we played well, and it's always tough over here," Moore said. "There were long stretches of the game where I felt comfortable the way we were playing. But the bottom line is, it comes down to what you do on the scoreboard."
