Loyola 32 Waubonsie Valley 0

GAME RECAP: Loyola recorded its first shutout of the season Saturday in Aurora en route to raising its record to 7-0. Linebackers Armoni Dixon and Michael Byrne and defensive back Jack Burke led the defense, which is allowing only 7 points a game. A highlight was Dixon’s interception. The offense started slowly, but the Ramblers ran off three consecutive touchdowns in the final few minutes of the first half to take control of the game. Quarterback Jack Fallon accounted for two of the scores, running for one and throwing to Rory Boos for the other. Running back Michael Gavric, who finished with 130 yards on the ground, scored the other first-half touchdown on a 30-yard run. The running game continued to shine in the second half behind offensive linemen Dom Urukalo, Joe Nasally and Tim Schiltz. Running back Jeremy Stephens added a touchdown in the fourth quarter.

COACH’S COMMENT: “It was nice to get all of our players into the game these last two weeks,” Loyola sophomore coach Les Seitzinger said. “These last two games against Providence and Brother Rice will be your typical Catholic Blue fist fights.”
