Last week in a critical MIAA A Conference win over McDonogh, Georgetown Prep’s Bobby Gribbin rushed for 226 yards and then blocked a potential game tying extra-point kick to preserve a 13-12 win.

Saturday, in a match-up with former IAC rival St. Alban’s, Gribbin again proved to be the difference in another close win, as the Little Hoyas edged the previously unbeaten Bulldogs, 15-13.

Gribbin rushed for two touchdowns, a 15-yard second quarter run and a 34-yard third quarter sprint, and finished with 185 yards on the ground.  He also added a two-point conversion run and blocked another kick, this time on a field goal attempt.  In addition, he intercepted a pass on defense.

Georgetown Prep is now 7-2 overall and has won five straight games.  It is 3-1 in the MIAA A Conference and the Little Hoyas remain in contention for their first league title.

Next Saturday the Little Hoyas will be at home to face Landon, another former IAC rival, before closing their season in two weeks, at home against Loyola.  Currently, Prep, Loyola, Gilman and Calvert Hall all have just one league loss and the title may remain unsettled until Thanksgiving when Loyola and Calvert Hall meet in the Turkey Bowl and all of the potential tie-breakers are sorted out.  Prep’s lone league loss came to Gilman, while it owns a victory over Calvert Hall.
