Football glance



Patterson (2-0) at Dunbar (2-0)

Time: 3:45 p.m.

Outlook: The Clippers' Thomas Smith rushed for scores of 2, 20 and 55 yards to go with a two-point conversion last week in a 24-6 rout of Poly. The Poets got a big game from junior Nathan Irby, who scored four touchdowns, including a 70-yard punt return, and rushed for 231 yards in a 38-20 rout of City.

Walbrook (1-0) at No. 5 Edmondson (2-0)

Time: 3:45 p.m.

Outlook: Walbrook won last week's season opener, 30-0, over Carver. But Edmondson is riding a 12-game winning streak against Baltimore City rivals and outscored its first two opponents this season 66-0.

Liberty (1-1) at Century (0-2)

Time: 6 p.m.

Outlook: This matchup figures to be fairly even. Liberty QB Matt Anuszewski is 15-for-24 for 159 yards in his first two games. Century has relied primarily on RB Jason Kingan (28 carries, 123 yards). A year ago, Liberty won, 20-2, in Century's varsity debut. This year, the Knights have just 14 points in two blowout losses.

No. 12 Francis Scott Key (2-0) at Westminster (0-2)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Key's running back tandem of Josh Rutter and Layton Hersh has produced more than 500 yards and eight touchdowns in wins over North Carroll and Liberty. Eagles coach John Baugher, however, expects a difficult matchup from a physical standpoint. This is the third straight ranked opponent for Westminster, which has been outscored 89-7 by No. 13 South Carroll and Martinsburg, the top-ranked team in West Virginia.

Linganore (2-0) at No. 13 South Carroll (2-0)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: In the premier matchup in the Monocacy Valley Athletic League this week, South Carroll's prolific offense meets Linganore's stifling defense. QB T.J. Swanson (397 yards passing, 105 yards rushing, seven total touchdowns) may use a wrist protector to shield a slight fracture in his non-throwing arm. The Cavaliers also will rely on Zach Baker and Brad Mayr, who have combined to rush for nearly 200 yards. Linganore, which has opened with two non-conference victories, won last year's meeting, 22-13.

North Carroll (0-2) at Winters Mill (0-2)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: North Carroll has been outscored 54-7 in losses to No. 12 Francis Scott Key and No. 13 South Carroll, the best two teams in Carroll County. The Panthers have relied on QB David Dix (18-for-38, 179 yards). The Falcons have gotten good production from RB Joe Taylor (116 yards rushing, 2 TDs) and looked sharp for much of their season opener against Liberty.
