Mount Carmel 28, Loyola 21
Game recap: The Ramblers led the Caravan in the fourth quarter Saturday, but two turnovers on consecutive possessions cost them a chance at the win.
Trailing 21-14, Mount Carmel tied the game after an interception. The Caravan then recovered a fumble on Loyola’s ensuing series and later took a 28-21 lead. The Ramblers (2-1) drove down the field and into Mount Carmel territory before another interception.
John Sullivan returned an interception for a touchdown on Mount Carmel’s first possession to stake Loyola to a 7-0 lead. Aidan Brownlee scored on a 79-yard pass from JT Thomas to make it 14-7, and the Ramblers went into the half ahead tied 14-all.
Perrion McClinton put Loyola up 21-14 with a 15-yard TD run in the fourth quarter before the Caravan took advantage of a Loyola turnover to even the score.
Jason Kusibab and Anthony Sherman were standouts on the defensive side of the field, according to Loyola head coach Greg Jacobson.
“You can’t turn the ball over late in the game against a team like Mount Carmel,” Jacobson said. “They will make you pay for it. I am proud of the way our team fought to the end.”
