Sophomore quarterback Brady Smith scored on a 4-yard run and added a touchdown on a 22-yard return of an interception as visiting Loyola rode a dominating defensive effort to a 21-11 victory over host Urbana in Ijamsville yesterday.
Loyola improved to 2-1 in coach Brian Abbott's first season.
Urbana, which entered the season with a state-record 50-game winning streak, is now 0-3 after losses to Gilman, Park View (Va.) and now Loyola. This was the first home loss for the Hawks since 1997.
After the Dons trailed 11-7 at halftime, senior Paul Quayle opened the second half with a 99-yard kickoff return to give Loyola a 14-11 lead.
The Dons' defense allowed only a 31-yard field goal to Urbana's Eric Lenz in the first quarter. The Hawks' other points came on two Loyola special teams miscues.
