Flyers hoping for Thursday night magic

The Loyola football team is hoping that a change in the calendar will help change their recent results.

The Flyers will play their only Thursday game of the season when they travel to Independence Stadium to take on Fair Park at 7 o'clock.

"Playing on Thursday night is always good if you win because it gives you an extra day of rest," Loyola head coach Alan Carter said. "But if you lose, it makes for a long weekend."

The bigger challenge will be in facing the Indians, who are 5-2 overall.

"Fair Park has a lot of athletes and a lot of speed on the field," Carter said. "They will be tough to contend with."

The Flyers will be looking to put it all together against the Indians after the special teams let them down in a 25-to-10 loss against Benton at Messmer Stadium.

The Tigers ran back the opening kick, had a long punt return and recovered two botched kick offs to start the second half.

"Our offense and defense played really well against Benton," Carter said. "But we lost our chance to win because of special teams. We had four special teams plays that took us out of a chance to win the ball game.

Austin Townsend led the defense with 12 tackles and Rodney Rollins had two interceptions.
