Flyers can't climb out of early hole

The Loyola Flyers played their only Thursday night game of the year last night, but a slow start against Fair Park resulted in a 20-9 loss at Independence Stadium.

Turnovers by the Flyers led to the Indians scoring touchdowns on their first three possessions and put Loyola behind 20-0 in the second quarter.

But the Flyers fought back throughout the rest of the game, keeping Fair Park out of the end zone as the Loyola offense began clicking.

The Flyers got on the board on the final play of the first half as sophomore Josh Hawboldt kicked a 27-yard field goal to make it 20-3.

The Flyers took the opening kickoff of the second half and drove inside the Fair Park 10 but had to settle for another field goal, this one from 34 yards out.

Hawboldt added a 38-yard field goal on the next Flyer possession to tie a school record for most field goals in a game.

Ray Shepherd led the Flyers with 83 yards and Tamerick Gilyard had 63. Pierce Easterling caught four passes and quarterback Bishop George completed 7 of 15 passes for 55 yards.

On defense, Rodney Rollins had nine tackles and Charles Hawes had a season high eight. Hawes had four tackles behind the line – the most by a Flyer this year.

Loyola will play the final two games of the season at home when they take on North DeSoto next Friday and Woodlawn on Nov. 7.
