The forecast for Hurricane Irma to smash into Florida this weekend forced The Baltimore Sun’s top two high school football teams to call off their games this weekend. St. Frances could not travel to IMG in Bradenton and coaches from Bishop Moore, in Orlando, opted not to make the trip to Archbishop Spalding for fear they wouldn’t be able to get home for a while afterward.
With near-perfect weather in Baltimore for Week 2, the rest of the games went on as scheduled. A couple of MIAA A Conference teams got the better of their matchups with the Washington Catholic Athletic League as McDonogh topped Bishop McNamara and Mount Saint Joseph defeated Good Counsel. The WCAC did come away with one win over a local team as defending conference champion DeMatha rolled over last year’s Class 3A state finalist Franklin.
There were a few upsets, but seven Top 15 teams remain undefeated. Here’s a look at how they all fared and who they face next weekend. Check out the new poll in Tuesday’s Baltimore Sun and on baltimoresun.com.
