Calvert Hall Football

MIAA CHAMPIONS – November 20, 2021
Calvert Hall 14     McDonogh 8

In incredibly dramatic fashion, Calvert Hall’s improbable run to the MIAA Title culminated with a last second 4th down red zone defensive stop, as the Cardinals held on for a 14-8 victory, and the program’s first MIAA “A” Championship since 2010.

The Cards jumped out on top with two 2nd quarter touchdowns, and held a 14-0 halftime lead.  The Cardinals’ defense forced four McDonogh turnovers and three times stopped the Eagles on 4th down.  

Congratulations to head coach Josh Ward ’04, his coaching staff, and the talented and hard-working players on capturing the 2021 Championship.  The Cardinals, #2 in the metro area, are now 9-2 on the season.



There is still one more game remaining . . . the 101st Turkey Bowl.  The Cardinals face the Dons on Thanksgiving morning at Towson University’s Unitas Stadium.  Loyola comes into the game limping, having lost 14-5 to Concordia Prep in last night’s MIAA “B” Conference title game.
