This Week's Football Games

Today

Oakland Mills (1-0) at Linganore (1-0)

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Linganore's strengths are size and defense. Oakland Mills' strengths are speed and offense. Oakland Mills is expecting perhaps its toughest game of the season. Linganore defeated Oakland Mills, 16-13, a year ago. If Linganore has a weakness it is lack of speed. Oakland Mills' speed advantage is highlighted by RB Fardan Carter, whose opening-day numbers in a 27-6 win over Aberdeen included 16 carries for 125 yards and two touchdowns. FB Brian Howard carried 10 times for 57 yards. QB Irving Conwell completed 9 of 13 passes for 133 yards.

Atholton (1-0) at Liberty (1-0)

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: Atholton QB Jason Sandner ran the option well in an opening 35-0 victory over Northeast-AA. He carried seven times for 91 yards and two touchdowns. But an injured ankle ispreventing him from practicing this week, and his status is unknown until game time. The Raiders will get a boost from the return of

5-foot-10, 220-pound FB and NG Jon Sanford. Atholton expects a tough game from the Lions, who have a bunch of returning skill players, including QB Ryan Pagels and FB Bill Shaffer (136 yards, four touchdowns).

Howard (1-0) at Edmondson (1-0)

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: If Edmondson's 44-0 win over Northwestern is any indication, Howard will be in for a tough game. Corey Brown rushed for 150 yards and four touchdowns for the Redskins. But the Lions opened on a winning note by beating Southwestern, 22-6, and their optimism is high. Owen Brown rushed for 122 yards and one touchdown against Southwestern.

Tomorrow

Hammond (1-0) at Eastern Tech (0-1)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: First-year coach Nick Arminio's Mavericks dropped the opener to Edgewood, 31-6, and are expected to struggle early with youth at the skill positions and not much overall depth. Hammond ripped Dundalk, 27-6, behind FB Ron Gamble's 64 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Hammond's passing game was hampered by All-America QB Tim Spruill's injured shoulder.

North Carroll (0-1) at Glenelg (0-1)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: Glenelg lost a 19-18 thriller to Joppatowne, a team that has made the playoffs six straight years, while North Carroll was losing to Francis Scott Key, 36-0. The Gladiators, who displayed a balanced attack, had an 18-13 lead until Joppatowne staged a long drive in the final six minutes. Sophomore Glenelg QB Beau Pick completed 10 of 17 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns in his first varsity start. RB Jeremy Lignelli carried 24 times for 122 yards. Doug Gasch made five receptions for 67 yards and two touchdowns.

Patapsco (0-1) at Mount Hebron (1-0)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: Mount Hebron is soaring after breaking a 17-game losing streak last week by defeating Harford Vo-Tech, 54-0. The Vikings had 332 yards rushing, and coach Bill Winder pulled his first team early in the second quarter. RB Mike Machiran ran 10 times for 105 yards and three touchdowns, and added a fourth touchdown on an interception. Jeremy Desor returned an interception for a touchdown. Chris Varlotta rushed 11 times for 111 yards. Patapsco has only nine returnees from a 2-8 team and

lost its opener to Loch Raven, 9-0.

South Carroll (1-0) at Centennial (0-1)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Eagles lost a heart-breaker in their opener to Westlake, 26-14. They led 14-12 after three quarters, but a lack of depth caused them to wear down as Westlake rallied. Centennial made no turnovers and had just two penalties. Chip Harrison rushed 16 times for 45 yards. QB John Webster completed 5 of 15 passes for 126 yards and one touchdown. George Mitroka caught two passes for 45 yards and one touchdown, and made 12 tackles. South Carroll, led by RB Mike Chenoweth's 141 yards rushing and three touchdowns, defeated Wilde Lake, 27-12, in its opener.

Bladensburg (0-1) at Wilde Lake (0-1)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: In their openers, Bladensburg lost to Georgetown Prep, 28-13, and Wilde Lake to South Carroll, 27-12. The Wildecats used RB Dain Lewis as their workhorse (31 carries, 168 yards, two touchdowns). Wilde Lake failed to take advantage of three first-half turnovers by South Carroll, and then the Wildecats self-destructed with two turnovers and crucial penalties in the second half. Wilde Lake QB Jeff Johnson completed 4 of 13 passes for 79 yards and had two intercepted.
