This Week's Key Football Games

October 07, 1994|By Lem Satterfield and John W. Stewart

Today

Forest Park (2-1) at No. 7 City (4-0)

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: City is led by RB Taber Small (545 yards, five TDs), who ranks seventh among area rushers, along with RB Damian Beane (377, five) and RB Jemini Jones (155, three). Forest Park, trying to rebound from its loss to 2A power Cambridge, relies on RB Aaron Thompson (347, three) and RB Lonnie Byrd (122 yards). Taber's twin brother, Sharif, will start at FB for Forest Park, which lost last year's game, 16-15. "We were trailing only 13-6 against Cambridge at halftime, but we fumbled five times in the second half," Forest Park coach Obie Barnes said. "We've made some changes so it doesn't happen again."

St. Paul's (3-1) at Curley (4-0)

Time: 3:45 p.m.

Outlook: Curley, off to its best start in years, tackles the first of five straight Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference games against last year's co-champion Crusaders.

RB Don Campbell (398 yards, seven TDs), RB Mickey Glendon (205, one) and Bill Curran (191, three) represents the Friars' attack. Curran and QB Tim Asher have combined for 239 passing yards for two TDs, mostly to WR Nick Brownlee (seven catches, 152 yards, one TD). St. Paul's must find other weapons besides QB Tucker Radebaugh to regroup from last week's 54-0 loss to McDonogh.

C. Milton Wright (3-1) vs. No. 15 Randallstown (3-1)

Site: Catonsville CC

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Each team finds itself needing a victory to remain in the hunt for a 3A North Region playoff berth. Randallstown is led by 300-pound lineman Terran Crawford and RB Angelo Todd (557 yards, four TDs), the area's seventh-leading rusher. C. Milton Wright, last year's Harford County champ, has dropped only a 22-21 loss to No. 12 Aberdeen. The Mustangs, coached by Steve Harward, won last year's contest.

Edmondson (3-1) at Cambridge (4-0)

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Edmondson's Redskins, coming off last week's 20-14 upset of then-No. 8 Lake Clifton, travel to the Eastern Shore to play Cambridge. The Redskins will rely on their running attack of RB Corey Brown (453 yards, one TD), David Merritte (255, two) and Samuel Scott (88, two). Scott's 53-yard interception return for a touchdown secured last week's upset, and Merritte also has two interceptions. TE-LB Charles Wilson is the Redskins' top tackler with 37, followed by FB-LB Brian Moss with 29.

Tomorrow

No. 9 Mount St. Joseph (4-0) at No. 3 McDonogh (3-1)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: This MIAA A Conference battle should be high-scoring. Mount St. Joseph has outscored opponents, 190-43, and the Eagles have outscored their past three rivals, 123-6. McDonogh QB Bobby Sabelhaus (846 yards, six TDs) leads the area, and Gaels QB Lucas Phillips (593 yards, six TDs) ranks third. Mount St. Joseph coach Mike Working, who transferred from McDonogh last spring, goes against his former athletes, in Sabelhaus, WR Dennis Badham (29 receptions, 385 yards, four TDs), DB Jason Taylor (four interceptions) and WR-DB Dwayne Stukes, who has more than 3,000 all-purpose yards in his career. Leading the Gaels are RB Je'von Norris (519 yards, nine TDs), RB Archie Wannamaker (468, eight TDs) and WR Danny Rosewag (15 receptions, 242 yards, five TDs).

No. 8 St. Mary's (4-0) at No. 6 Gilman (2-1)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: St. Mary's sends the area's second-leading rusher, Jason Lilly (705 yards, eight TDs), QB Brad Davis (448 passing yards, three TDs) and a line that averages 230 pounds, against Gilman, which traditionally is among the area's best defenses. Gilman boasts RB R. C. Kauffman (276 yards, one TD), RB David Biddison (136, four TDs), QB Lorne Smith (193 passing yards, three TDs), James McIntyre (146 yards, two TDs) and K-P Corey Popham, who is 9-for-9 on PATs.
