No. 5 Centennial @Oakland Mills
WHEN -- Tomorrow, 4 p.m.
OUTLOOK -- Defending county champ Centennial, which reached the Class 3A state title game last year and was the preseason favorite this season, is off to a 6-1 start. Senior left-handed pitcher Ben Winter, last season's coun ty Player of the Year, has carried much of the load for the Eagles while a num ber of first-year starters find their way. Oakland Mills is one of the county teams trying to catch up with the Ea gles. Senior P Jeff Randolph leads the way on the mound and at the plate, with fellow pitchers Ricky Kersey and Brian Widmayer giving coach Rod Clif ford quality options.
THE SUN'S PICK -- Centennial
Centennial @No. 7 Glenelg
WHEN -- Friday, 7 p.m.
OUTLOOK -- The teams last met in the Class 3A-2A South regional title game last year when Glenelg came away with a last-minute 9-8 win on its way to the program's first state championship. Many of the promi nent players on both sides have re turned, and a couple new ones have emerged to add to the rivalry. The Gladiators, who went into the week with a 6-0 mark, rely on senior A Chris Gotschall (two goals, three as sists in the playoff win) for offense and senior G Jon Selfridge. Centenni al has been getting consistent scoring from Mount Hebron transfer Harris on Chaires, with a stingy defense that boasts three three-year starters. Expect another game that could go down to the final minute.
THE SUN'S PICK -- Glenelg
