After falling to Mt. Hebron, 14-7, last week the Wildecats have lost three games — to Howard, Glenelg and Mt. Hebron — by eight points or less. Their defense has been strong, allowing only 14 points per game, but they're going to have trouble beating Reservoir and Hammond if they score 10 points or less, which is what they've done in four of their seven games.

Last week: lost to Mt. Hebron (2-5), 14-7. This week: home against Reservoir (5-2), Friday at 7 p.m.

W: LR (29-7), MR (28-7), A (23-12). L: Ho (13-10), G (14-6), RH (33-0), MH (14-7).

 

9. (9.) Oakland Mills (3-4, 195-249)

It has been an exciting year for the Scorpions, who have won two of their last three games and boast the league's fifth-ranked offense, just two points behind Glenelg. The defense has allowed more than 35 points per game, but Oakland Mills has proven that it can win a shootout. I could see the Scorpions knocking off Mt. Hebron and Wilde Lake down the stretch to finish 5-5.

Last week: beat Atholton (0-7), 36-35. This week: home against River Hill (6-1), Friday at 7 p.m.
