5. (3.) Atholton (0-2, 51-47)

It's hard times on Freetown Road, because the Raiders found out that their Week 1 win over Marriotts Ridge would be forfeited because of a practice violation within a day of getting blown out by Howard. Things don't get any easier this week, as Atholton hosts defending state champion River Hill, which is in the midst of a 26-game winning streak. This is still a talented team capable of upsets.

Last week: lost to Howard, 40-16. This week: home against River Hill, Friday at 7 p.m.

W: NA. L: MR (FF), Ho (40-16).


6. (7.) Wilde Lake (0-2, 16-27)

The Wildecats have lost two straight close games, but should make up some ground in the scoring differential column this Saturday against homecoming opponent Long Reach.

Last week: lost to Glenelg (1-1), 14-6. This week: home against Long Reach (0-2), Saturday at 1 p.m.

W: NA. L: Ho (13-10), G (14-6).
