Look at the Gators’ losses and you’ll see three respectable scores against some of the top teams in the league. Look at their wins and you’ll see dominance. Reservoir has a Division I prospect at quarterback, size on the lines, and talent on offense and defense. Like a Gator in a swamp, they’re just waiting for a higher-ranked team — Glenelg (Oct. 14), Howard (Oct. 28) or Wilde Lake (Nov. 4) — to walk by so they can strike.

W: Marriotts Ridge (49-6), Mt. Hebron (42-0); L: River Hill (28-7), Long Reach (32-20), Atholton (24-14).
Last week: Beat Mt. Hebron, 42-0. This week: home against Centennial, Thursday at 3 p.m.

9. (9.) Mt. Hebron (2-3, 67-127)

The Vikings were flying high after beating rival Centennial on a last-second TD two weeks ago, but they took a step back against Reservoir. Meanwhile, Wilde Lake will be looking for a bounce-back performance.

W: Oakland Mills (26-0), Centennial (21-14); L: Hammond (36-13), Howard (35-7), Reservoir (42-0).
Last week: Lost to Reservoir, 42-0. This week: home against Wilde Lake, Thursday at 6 p.m.

10. (10.) Oakland Mills (1-4, 63-154)

The Scorpions have gotten much better since the season began, and I bet they’d like another shot at Mt. Hebron — which they lost to on opening night, 26-0 — because I don’t see any obvious wins coming up on their tough second-half schedule.

W: Marriotts Ridge (27-20); L: Mt. Hebron (26-0), Wilde Lake (40-7), Glenelg (41-14), Howard (27-15).
Last week: Lost to Howard, 27-15. This week: at Atholton, Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

On the bubble: Centennial (0-5, 42-172), Marriotts Ridge (0-5, 58-225).
