Baltimore Sun’s BEST party in 2 weeks

Football games



Atholton (1-1) at Lansdowne (1-1)

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: RB Ricky Trott rushed 16 times for 146 yards and one TD, but it wasn't enough as the Raiders fell to Liberty, 41-20, last week. Liberty blitzed a lot and Atholton had only 33 yards passing. The Raiders need to stay on the ground and control the ball to win. Lansdowne, which returns all but three players from last season, defeated Colonel Richardson last week to end a 42-game losing streak.

Centennial (1-1) at North Carroll (0-2)

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Centennial sprang a 27-14 upset on South Carroll last week and should have little trouble with North Carroll, 36-14 losers to Glenelg. The Panthers have lost 21 of their last 22 games. Centennial used three interceptions, one for a 51-yard TD by John Woods, to stop South Carroll. LB George Mitroka had 10 tackles and two QB sacks. RB Scott Bross carried 18 times for 94 yards. QB John Webster completed 4 of 8 passes for 76 yards.

Frederick (1-0) at Howard (2-0)

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Lions sneaked past Edmondson, 6-0, while Frederick opened its season with a victory over Calvert Hall. QB Chris Poling completed 7 of 16 passes for 91 yards and one touchdown. Frederick has good size and can pass or run. Howard has lost three tailbacks and is struggling offensively.

Wilde Lake (1-1) at Southern-AA (0-2)

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Wildecats rallied from an 8-7 halftime deficit to beat Bladensburg, 20-8. QB Jeff Johnson threw for 114 yards and three touchdowns. RB Dain Lewis rushed for 111 yards and one touchdown. Southern lost to Severn, 41-6. Senior Bulldogs RB Bobby Procopio rushed for 1,207 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.


Carroll (1-1) at Glenelg (1-1)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: Glenelg trailed North Carroll 14-13 at halftime, but pulled away to a 32-14 victory. QB Beau Pich led Glenelg by completing 12 of 21 passes for 204 yards and three touchdowns. Jeremy Lignelli had 163 yards rushing for Glenelg. South Carroll lost to Centennial, 26-14, and its top RB, Mike Chenoweth, had to leave the game in the first quarter with a concussion. The Cavaliers can throw but were intercepted three times by Centennial.

Liberty (2-0) at Mount Hebron (2-0)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Vikings are off to a surprising start and face their toughest opponent so far. In a 20-0 victory over Patapsco, QB John Smith completed 5 of 8 passes for 104 yards and rushed eight times for 89 yards. RB Mike Machiran rushed 11 times for 70 yards. The Vikings have punted only once this season. No. 15 Liberty has a powerful wing-T running game that swamped Atholton, 41-20.

Thomas Johnson (1-1) at Oakland Mills (1-1)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: The No. 5 Scorpions didn't play well last week against Linganore and lost, 14-6. They should rebound against a Thomas Johnson squad that is not one of its best. The Frederick County team defeated Lackey, 22-14, last week, after losing its opener to Middletown, 36-6. Oakland Mills QB Irving Conwell completed 6 of 19 passes for 105 yards, one touchdown and one interception and was sacked three times. RB Fardan Carter rushed for 77 yards.

Rockville (0-2) at Hammond (2-0)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: In last week's 33-0 win over Eastern Tech, Bear QB Tim Spruill rushed nine times for 133 yards and three touchdowns, and completed 4 of 12 passes for 94 yards. Jeff Zillmer returned a kickoff 82 yards for a touchdown. LB Vince Sharps made seven tackles, recovered a fumble and caused a fumble. Rockville has a good passing attack, but lost to Kennedy, 20-14, last week, and to Walter Johnson the week before, 20-7.
