MIAA upsets scramble state football poll, but St. Frances remains unanimous No. 1

The weekend’s upsets by Gilman over McDonogh and Mount Saint Joseph over Archbishop Spalding scrambled the Maryland High School Football Media State Poll for Week 10, but St. Frances remains the unanimous No. 1.

Gilman’s 24-21 win over McDongh sent the Eagles tumbling seven spots to No. 10 and leaves St. Frances as the only Baltimore-area team in the top 10.

Spalding fell from No. 14 to 20 after Mount Saint Joseph’s 22-7 win. The Gaels moved up from No. 20 to 18.

No. 11 Broadneck and No. 12 Howard rose one spot each while No. 15 Calvert Hall is up two spots. River Hill dropped one spot to No. 25.

At the top of the poll, St. Frances is one of five undefeated teams in the top six with No. 2 Wise, No. 3 Damascus, No. 4 Walkersville and No. 6 North Point. Good Counsel is No. 5 at 8-2.

Five other undefeated teams, including Broadneck, Howard and River Hill, are ranked. No. 16 No. 19 North Caroline are also unbeaten.

Gilman and Westminster received votes but not enough to break into the Top 25.

This will be the final poll until after the state championships, which take place Nov. 30-Dec. 2.
