Loyola Blakefield's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference opener Tuesday against St. Mary's was an emotionally charged game for the Dons' first-year coach, Ben Rubeor.

Loyola faced the Saints, the team that Rubeor had coached for the previous three years. And last spring, he guided St. Mary's to its first league championship in 19 years.


Loyola beat the visiting Saints, 24-6, to give the No. 5 Dons their first victory over St. Mary's since 2011. The Saints dropped to 1-7.

"It was interesting getting up this morning," Rubeor said. "It's a group of boys over there I know pretty well and that I care about. I respect them for all the hard work they put in for me and all the trust they gave me. I tried to keep the emotions out of it."

Loyola scored the first eight goals and led 13-2 at halftime.

Senior attackman Cole Williams led Loyola (4-2) with four goals. Luke Hurley and Nick Goles each finished with three goals.

St. Mary's Jake Carraway had three goals.

No. 3 Boys' Latin 12, Archbishop Spalding 7: Logan Wisnauskas had seven points (five goals, two assists) to lead the Lakers (6-2, 1-0 MIAA A Conference) past the host Cavaliers (4-4, 0-1).

Boys' Latin won 15 of 22 faceoffs.

No. 6 Severn 13, Gilman 11: Michael Lamon and Doug Hill each had a hat trick to lead the Admirals (12-1, 2-0 MIAA A Conference) past the host Greyhounds (0-9, 0-2).

Gilman trailed 7-6 at the half.

No. 8 Broadneck 13, Marriotts Ridge 6: Riley McNulty and Tim Oslislo each had a hat trick to lead the host Bruins (5-0) past the Mustangs (3-4).

Broadneck outscored Marriotts Ridge 9-3 in the second half.

No. 12 Hereford 6, Towson 3: J.D. Nozemack had a hat trick and the Bulls defense gave up one goal in the second half to beat the host Generals (6-2).

Hereford improved to 7-1.

No. 14 Mount Hebron 5, Atholton 4: Jake Edmondson scored with 30 seconds left to lift the Vikings (6-1) over the Raiders (4-3).


Dylan Scheeler scored twice for Mount Hebron.

City 16, Dunbar 13: Derian Sturdivant had eight goals and three assists and Melvin Scott had three goals and two assists to lead the host Knights (5-0) past the Poets (3-1).

Nik Utz scooped up 13 ground balls and had four assists for City.

Dundalk 9, Pikesville 8, 2OT: Cooper Wildberger scored the tying goal and Darien Fisher had the winner as the host Owls (3-0) earned a come-from-behind victory over the Panthers (4-1).

Fisher finished with four goals and the Dundalk defense was led by Brad DePasquale, Kevin Perry, Cody Neiser and Angelo Carter.

Dulaney 6, Catonsville 5: Joey Wenzl and Robby Foster had two goals each and Garrett Michel had a goal and two assists for the visiting Lions (3-3).

Luke Palmisano (one goal, two assists) and Andrew Bateman (two goals) led the Comets, who pulled within one on Colin Burk's goal with four minutes remaining, but the Lions held them scoreless the rest of the way. Trenton Lazorchak had 13 saves for Catonsville (2-4) and Matthew Stidham had nine saves for the Lions.

Howard 9, South River 2: The host Lions (5-3) controlled the game throughout and never trailed the Seahawks (4-3).

Howard took a 3-0 lead into halftime. Malik Anderson and Michael Travisano scored two goals apiece and five other Lions scored, while the defense and goalie Collin McClelland (11 saves) shut off South River's offense and tempo.

"It was the possessions. Their faceoff guy did an excellent job," South River coach Michael Hicks said. "We never really had the ball very much in the second half. I thought we made some stands early, but it just wore on us getting the ball every time. He's good and they got some good ballplayers too."

River Hill 15, Wilde Lake 7: Wilde Lake (2-2) couldn't overcome an 11-goal halftime deficit against River Hill (4-1) and ultimately suffered its second straight defeat in its home opener.

"I don't know. We dug ourselves a really big hole in the beginning and we just weren't on our game," Wilde Lake coach Mike Rhodovi said. "I don't know what's happening in the last week, but we just haven't been on our game.
