"I think we played great team defense," said George Hypolite, who rushed 11 times for 61 yards and helped pressure Angelo from his defensive tackle position. "We had a league championship sitting right here ... we had to grasp it."
They clinched it with both hands and squeezed. The only lapse that hurt the Cubs was Chris Ramsey's 67-yard scoring run in the first quarter to tie the score, 7-7.
Loyola had plenty of offense as quarterback Scott Deke scored on runs of eight and two yards and Trason Bragg added a two-yard touchdown. Bragg rushed 21 times for 117 yards as the Cubs rushed for 217 yards and out-gained the Eagles 351-151 yards. "We're a gritty bunch of guys, but we played soft," Eagle Coach Mike Jacot said. "They pushed us around. That was disappointing."
