6. Long Reach (1-1, 69-49)
Last week: Lost to River Hill, 35-14. This week: at Reservoir.
7. Howard (1-1, 48-28)
The Lions looked pretty bad on defense allowing 28 points to Atholton in the first half, but they looked pretty good holding the Raiders scoreless in the second half!
Last week: Lost to Atholton, 28-7. This week: home against Mt. Hebron.
8. Glenelg (2-0, 34-39)
David Brookhart had a 70-yard punt return touchdown and a 35-yard touchdown reception in the first half alone on Monday! Sounds like the 5-foot-8, 135 pound (listed size) sophomore could be a blossoming playmaker, but yards will be much harder to come by against Wilde Lake.
Last week: Beat Centennial, 34-0. This week: at Wilde Lake.
9. Mt. Hebron (1-1, 39-36)
The Vikings actually led Hammond, 7-6, in the first half. One thing is certain: this team is a lot different than the one that went 1-9 and allowed a league-worst 379 points last year.
Last week: Lost to Hammond, 36-13. This week: at Howard.
10. Oakland Mills (0-2, 7-66)
The Scorpions are going to have to sort some things out on defense if they want to be competitive this year.
Last week: Lost to Wilde Lake, 40-7. This week: home against Marriotts Ridge.
On the bubble: Centennial (0-2, 0-75), Marriotts Ridge (0-2, 20-104).
