This Weekend In Football

September 16, 1994|By Lem Satterfield


Walbrook (1-0) at No. 1 Patterson (1-0)

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: Patterson's Clippers whipped City-League 4A rival Walbrook handily two years ago but needed a two-point conversion to win last year's game, 15-14. The Warriors, under first-year coach Kelvin Bridges and behind three-year starting QB Maurice Selby, come off an 18-0 shutout of 4A rival Southern-B. Walbrook's RB Norris Johnson (120 yards) and RB Jovan Stanley (102 yards), a 220-pounder, were the top rushers last week. Also threats are Warriors' WR Douglass Dorsey, who caught a 45-yard touchdown pass last week, and TE Damon Allen (6-5, 195). Patterson, of coach Roger Wrenn (126-75-2 over 21 seasons), hammered 4A rival Edmondson, 34-0, last week. Second-team All-City/County QB Willie McGirt completed 10-for-16 for 198 yards and a touchdown and ran for two more touchdowns. Offensively, the Clippers also have WR Tim Horky (five receptions, 124 yards) and RB Ryan Lewis (two touchdowns).

No. 7 City (1-0) at Carver (0-1)

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: This City 3A League contest could come down to a battle in the trenches: The Carver Bears' line of G Damon Davis (236 pounds), TE-DE Jason Johnson (6-foot-6, 215) and OT Kenneth Taylor (6-1, 240) goes against the Knights' line, which averages 260 pounds behind Jonathan Jones (6-2, 250). City, last year's City 3A runner-up, hammered 3A rival Douglass, 40-0, last week to win its 30th of the last 32 games. RB Taber Small (115 yards, two touchdowns) and RB Jemini Jones (two touchdowns) led the Knights. Carver enters its City-League 3A opener having blown a 7-0 second-quarter lead on a fourth-quarter touchdown interception in an 8-7 loss to Forest Park. Carver TE James Rooths, a fourth-year starter, scored the Bears' only touchdown on a 27-yard reception. His second was negated by a clipping penalty.

No. 13 C. Milton Wright (1-0) at Aberdeen (1-0)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Aberdeen's Eagles, led by Dondre Gilliam (166 yards, four touchdowns), Keith Marshall (104 yards) and third-year QB Terrance Washington, smoked Pikesville, 54-8, in their season-opener. Tonight they tackle a much tougher foe in Harford County League rival C. Milton Wright, which comes off of a 24-0 shutout of Bowie of Prince George's County. The Mustangs got John Terrill's 30-yard field goal and three extra-point kicks, as well as rushing touchdowns from Rich Juergenson (19 yards) and Corey Robinson (35 yards).

Milford Mill (1-0) at No. 10 Howard (1-0)

Time: 7:45 p.m.

Outlook: Under coach Robert Mehno, the Millers have done a complete turnaround, having gone from 0-10 in 1992 to 7-4 and a playoff berth last year. Carlos Pearson (254 yards, two touchdowns) shone in Milford Mill's season-opening, 16-0 shutout of Mount Hebron of Howard County. Next, the Millers tackle Howard County's defending champ Howard High and its preseason All-American QB-DB DaLawn Parrish. Parrish rushed for two touchdowns in the Lions' season-opening 41-8 victory over Parkville.


Pallotti (0-1) at No. 5 McDonogh (0-1)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: McDonogh was knocked from the area's top-ranking after a season-opening, 25-14 loss at Potomac of Prince George's County, which ended its winning streak at 14. The Eagles trailed, 19-0, despite linemen who average nearly 300 pounds and the presence of All-Metros Bobby Sabelhaus (QB), Dwayne Stukes (WR-DB) and Dennis Badham (WR-S). They'll try to get back on track against Pallotti, a private school in Prince George's County. Pallotti led No. 11 St. Mary's, 14-13, last week before allowing the Saints' Jason Lilly to score the winning touchdown from 18 yards away for a 19-14 win.
