At the mid-point of the season, the number of undefeated high school football teams has dwindled but the big performances keep coming.
Three quarterbacks -- Archbishop Spalding's Zach Abey, North Harford's Nic Hammer and Perry Hall's Jeff Iweh -- had particularly impressive performances in a Week Five that saw nearly all of the top teams post victories.
Here are their numbers and some other statistics that stood out from this weekend’s action:
Straight wins by Glenelg over previously-undefeated teams -- Hammond and Howard
Interceptions by Archbishop Spalding’s Zach Abey in the first half of a 35-34 win over St. Frances
Plays from scrimmage for McDonogh to take a 14-0 lead on Calvert Hall en route to a 48-13 win
Touchdowns scored by Spalding’s Zach Abey – two rushing, two passing – in the win over St. Frances
Rushing touchdowns by North Harford quarterback Nic Hammer in a 42-7 win over Havre de Grace
Remaining undefeated teams in the Baltimore area -- McDonogh, St. Paul’s, Archbishop Curley, Boys’ Latin, River Hill, Old Mill, City, Douglass, Dundalk, Fallston and North Carroll
Straight wins for Catonsville on its home turf before Perry Hall ended the streak with a 45-7 win on Friday
Yard field goal by Fallston’s Luke Reuter with six seconds left to make the difference (along with a safety after the ensuing kickoff) in a 19-14 win over Aberdeen
