Gilman remained No. 2 behind DeMatha, the unanimous pick for No. 1.

McDonogh, with the best record in the state at 10-0, moved up a spot to No. 4 after the previous week’s No. 4, Quince Orchard, was upset by Northwest, 35-21. The Eagles defeated Archbishop Spalding, 23-12, Friday night.

Old Mill, which beat North County 59-0 Friday, also moved up to No. 6 from 8 thanks to Quince Orchard’s loss and then-No. 7 Linganore’s 42-7 loss to Middletown, now No. 5.
