Flyers prepare for district opener

The Loyola Flyers will begin District 1-3A play Friday hoping to reserve a trend when they meet Green Oaks Friday night at Messmer Stadium at 7 p.m.

The Flyers will go into the district season with a 2-3 overall record, but all three losses have come at home. In fact, Loyola has lost seven of its last eight home games.

Last week the Flyers played a No. 1-ranked team for the second week in a row in falling to Sterlington 41-14 at Messmer Stadium

The Panthers, the top-ranked team in Class 2A, used a strong running game as well as big plays to defeat the Flyers. Sterlington got on the board quickly with a 70-yard punt return for a touchdown and then came back with a 13-play, 77-yard drive to make it 14-0.

The Flyers came back with a big play of their own as sophomore Ethan Stansell raced 88 yards with a Bishop George pass to make it 14-7.

But on the first play of the second quarter, the Panthers came back with a 71-yard scoring strike and the Flyers coluldn't get closer.

Loyola did get another late touchdown on a 1-yard run by sophomore Gabe Thrash to close the scoring on a nine-play, 80-yard drive.

Sterlington rushed for 292 yards and had 519 yards in total offense. At one point, Sterlington had a 21-2 advantage in first downs.

Carter Windham led Loyola with 47 yards rushing and Thrash had 40. George completed 6 of 13 passes for 115 yards. Paul Mullin and Cole Easterly had two catches each.

Dean Hamiter led the defense with 10 tackles and Khalil Sumlin and Myles Mitchell had nine each.


  • The touchdown pass from George to Stansell was the fourth-longest in school history. There have been three of 91 yards each (the last in 2003).
  • The total yardage allowed is the most in a game since 2012.
  • George needs 53 yards to move into the Top 10 in career passing yards.
  • Loyola is 15-9 all time against Green Oaks but lost 20-14 a year ago.
