John Tune had two goals and an assist to lead No. 14 Calvert Hall (8-3-1, 6-3-1) to a 3-1 victory over No. 7 Loyola (4-7, 3-6) at Blakefield on Saturday afternoon, in a makeup of a game which was postponed earlier this week.
Tune put the Hall up, 1-0, up early in the game before Loyola’s Elliott Adelman tied the score, 1-1, on a penalty kick for the Dons. Moments later, with 20:16 left in the first half, Michael Dunbar put the Cardinals ahead 2-1 on an assist from Tune. Tune then finished the scoring when he gave the Cards an insurance goal with 2:22 to go in regulation.
“Coach (Andy Moore) said to get shots early and keep firing,” said Tune, who is averaging a close to a goal a game for the Cardinals.
Moore said that Tune has been unbelievable for his squad this season.
“He works hard, and the other players look to him,” said Moore, whose squad now has two wins over Loyola this year.
The Hall came from behind to beat Loyola last month at Calvert Hall, 4-3, after being down 3-0 to Lee Tschantret’s competitive team.
Moore also praised keeper John Dillon for is work this season.
“John came on when we were down 3-0 in our first match with Loyola, and he has made big save after big save ever since.”
The Dons pressured Dillon all day, taking 11 shots on goal, many just missing the mark. He finished with seven saves.
Dunbar’s goal, which proved to be the winner, came from the 18.
“Their goalie missed kicked it, and I was lucky enough to be there and I chipped it in.”
Calvert Hall moved into third place in the MIAA A Conference with 19 points, while Loyola remains in sixth place, as it continues to battle for playoff spot.
