It looks as though the rankings are starting to round into form after two weeks of games. I'm not saying that this is where they'll stay for the rest of the season, but I feel as if these make more sense than they did last week.
Reeling Mt. Hebron takes a tumble this week, but I would not be surprised to see the Vikings get it together and knock off a few teams ahead of them before November. Read on to see who moved up the ladder in Mt. Hebron's wake.
This edition of the power rankings also sees the addition of the points scored and points allowed charts at the bottom.
This week marks the start of the homecoming schedule, with Long Reach at Wilde Lake and Centennial at Mt. Hebron, both on Saturday at 1 p.m.
(Last week's ranking in parentheses.)
1. (1.) River Hill (2-0, 56 points scored-3 points allowed)
The Hawks' offense got going last week, scoring 49 points against Marriotts Ridge after putting only seven on the scoreboard in Week 1. The defense has allowed only three points. At 0-2, rival Atholton is hungry to take down the Hawks.
Last week: beat Marriotts Ridge (0-2), 49-0. This week: at Atholton (0-2), Friday at 7 p.m.
Wins: G (7-3), MR (49-0). Losses: NA.
2. (2.) Glenelg (1-1, 17-13)
No reason to drop the Gladiators out of the spot where they started. They've played two close games, and this Friday night's contest at Reservoir should also be a battle.
Last week: beat Wilde Lake (0-2), 14-6. This week: at Reservoir (1-1), Friday at 7 p.m.
W: WL (14-6). L: RH (7-3).
3. (4.) Hammond (2-0, 68-8)
Through two games, Hammond has scored more points than any team except for Centennial (87) and allowed fewer than only River Hill (3). And the scoring differential of its last four games is 136-21.Last week: beat Long Reach (0-2), 41-8. This week: home against Oakland Mills (1-1), Friday at 7 p.m.
W: MH (27-0), LR (41-8). L: NA.
