9. (9.) Centennial (3-5, 83-184)
It's been a good, but not great, year for the Eagles. They've taken care of business against the teams that they were "supposed" to beat, and they pulled off a signature upset against Hammond. I doubt they take out Glenelg on Saturday, but they have shown a penchant for spoiling teams' homecoming games. And the week ten game against Long Reach could certainly be a dogfight. Walter Fletcher (700 yards, 5 TDs) has proven to be a high-caliber running back, and he's only a junior. In fact, many of Centennial's top playmakers (QB Patrick McKinnis, QB Tyler Morris, KR Quinn Western, WR/DB Damon Reaves, RB/LB Michael Price, DB/WR Chase Conley, RB Logan Tignall, K Nicholas Cooper, P Austin Kraisser, OL/DL Conner Marcineck, OL/DL Kade Conner) are underclassmen, so there are plenty of reasons for Eagles fans to be excited about 2013 as well.
Last week: beat Marriotts Ridge (2-6), 13-0. This week: at Glenelg (5-3), Saturday at 1:30 p.m.
W: OM (20-6), Ha (14-13 OT), MR (13-0). L: WL (25-15), RH (56-0), Ho (21-7), A (25-0), Re (38-14).
10. (10.) Marriotts Ridge (2-6, 96-244)
To take a positive from last week's loss to Centennial: the Mustangs held the Eagles to only 13 points. Unfortunately, Marriotts Ridge did not score against the league's ninth ranked defense. They've got two tough games left on the schedule, but whatever happens, 2012 has been an encouraging season after a few very lean years.
Last week: lost to Centennial (3-5), 13-0. This week: home against Atholton (7-1).
W: OM (20-6), LR (28-27 OT). L: WL (25-15), RH (56-0), Ho (21-7), G (27-7), RH (62-0), C (13-0).
On the bubble: Long Reach (2-6, 159-281), Oakland Mills (0-8, 58-289).
