The Susquehanna Bowl, the annual football game pitting rivals Perryville (Cecil County) and Havre de Grace, was originally set for Friday but was rescheduled for 6 tonight because of the death of a Havre de Grace student.
William Lee, a sophomore JV soccer player, died Tuesday in a two-car collision in Havre de Grace. Lee was a passenger in the car of junior football player Brandon Harkins.
Harkins was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center, treated, released and is recuperating at home.
The death conjured up painful memories for Havre de Grace. A car accident two years ago killed football player Jovan Brooks, son of Warriors head coach Johnny Brooks.
"Everybody knows everybody here and when something like this happens, it affects the whole community," Johnny Brooks said. "The kid who passed away was real close to a lot of our kids. We're dedicating this season to him."
Big night in Harford
In addition to unranked Edgewood's come-from-behind 32-14 blowout of No. 14 Poly, Bel Air (1-0) upset No. 13 Dundalk, 28-6, and Aberdeen routed traditional Frederick County power Thomas Johnson, 41-0.
Carl Stokes and Avery Willie rushed for two touchdowns each, and Erin Henderson rushed and passed for scores as Aberdeen held its rival to negative rushing yards.
Bel Air linebackers Chris Mumey (nine tackles), John Jackson (17 tackles) and Pat McLhinney (one interception, one fumble recovery) sparked the Bobcats' victory, along with offensive linemen Steven Dombroskie, Griffin Stewart, Mike Mustin and Andy Meredith.
Andrew Berry threw touchdowns to twin brother Adam and Willie Bell, and Mike Gable and Anthony Hines rushed for scores.
Linebackers Justin Weston, Andrew Thomas, Damien Kinchen and Matt Vollono sparked a 26-6 win as Annapolis (1-0) ended a 35-game winning streak by three-time defending Delaware state champion Delmar, which had just 60 yards.
The alma mater of Annapolis coach Dale Castro, Southern of Anne Arundel (1-0), won, 21-8, over High Point of Prince George's County, the team Castro formerly coached. Bobby Atwell, E.J. Estep and A.J. Lee scored touchdowns as the Bulldogs rushed for 315 yards.

No. 2 Calvert Hall, No. 4 Loyola, No. 5 Gilman and Mount St. Joseph and McDonogh of the five-team Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference are a combined 1-5.
