Matt Cooper scored nine minutes into the second half as John Carroll shocked No. 5 Loyola, 1-0, yesterday in an MIAA A Conference boys soccer game.
The Patriots (3-1-1) improved to 2-1-1 in the A Conference after not winning a league game last year. This marked the second Patriots upset of a top 10 team in 11 days. They edged No. 6 McDonogh, 1-0, on Sept. 14.
A.J. Oritz made eight saves yesterday, and defenders Brandon Hooper, Nick Quisgard, Owen Jarvis and Zack Kohadja helped preserve the shutout.
"We're defending first, and we're not too concerned with an overall attack," said Patriots first-year coach Mario Schillipoti, who returns 18 players from last season. "We're just kind of counterattacking. We're playing a zone defense, and we're being very patient."
Cooper's game-winner, from about 12 yards out, appeared too high but dipped just in time to slip under the crossbar.
North Harford 3, No. 10 Bel Air 1: Robbie Roberts scored the go-ahead goal with just over two minutes left, and Ryan Wattenschaidt added an insurance goal a minute later as the host Hawks (2-2-2, 1-0 Harford County) upset the Bobcats (4-2-1).

Aberdeen 27, No. 11 C. Milton Wright 21: The visiting Mustangs (3-1) committed three turnovers, including a key third-quarter interception, that allowed the Eagles (1-3) to pull off an upset.
The Eagles dominated the game early, building a 21-7 halftime lead behind two touchdown runs by senior quarterback Chuck Faison and one by Tristan Stanley. Faison's 17-yard run early in the second quarter broke a 7-7 tie, and his 42-yard scamper on an option play gave the Eagles a 14-point edge at intermission.
The Mustangs opened the second half with a drive to the Aberdeen 7-yard line, but the Eagles' defense turned in a 92-yard interception return, setting up Faison's third touchdown of the night, a 1-yard plunge, to make it 27-7.
William Glodek scored on two 1-yard runs to close the deficit to six, but the Mustangs fumbled away their final chance on the 50-yard line with two minutes left in the game.
