PARKTON, Md. – Hereford made headlines last week when it knocked off MIAA power Gilman, a rarity even for clearly one the best of the Baltimore public schools to accomplish.

But today the Bulls – ranked No. 18 by – faced another MIAA power, bowing to Loyola Blakefield, 8-4. The loss dropped the Bulls to 4-2 while Loyola improved to 5-2 with its third straight win over an out-of-league foe.

Tyler Llewellyn led the Dons with two goals and Kevin O’Toole won 11 of 15 face-offs while Acie Newton made 12 saves in goal.

Jack Adams led Hereford – the five-time Maryland 2A-3A state champions – with two goals.

“That’s a win we feel very good about,” said Loyola coach Jack Crawford. “That’s a tough win against a tough hardworking team.”

Crawford said Hereford is a team clearly capable of knocking off more than one MIAA squads.

“Their win over Gilman was no fluke,” he said. “The first thing we noticed in film was how aggressive they were on ball and how aggressive they were sliding and how quickly they spread the ball from one side of the field to the other. They have some shooters; Adams is as good a shooter you’re going to see.”

“We didn’t play well and that’s because Loyola jumped on us,” said Hereford coach Brian King. “They were dominant on face offs and controlled the offense. They were disciplined on defense and got goaltending.”
