Calvert Hall wins America's oldest Catholic prep school rivalry over Loyola Blakefield

By

One early touchdown was enough to win Maryland’s Holy War, the annual showdown between Loyola Blakefield and Calvert Hall College.

The matchup dates back 96 years and is believed to be the longest-running Catholic prep school rivalry in America.

Calvert Hall’s 6-0 win at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday is the lowest-scoring game in the series since 1939, according to The Baltimore Sun. There have been six scoreless ties, all prior to 1934.

It was the first shutout for Calvert Hall in the series since 1988. The Cardinals have won six of the past seven in the series.

“Our defense had one of its best games all season,” Calvert Hill running back TJ Massey told The Sun. “Everybody was flying to the ball. They played one of the most pivotal roles in us winning this game.”

Massey scored the lone points of the game on a 75-yard run just four minutes into the contest.
