Football preview

November 03, 1995|By Rick Belz


No. 14 Hammond (7-1)

at No. 5 Oakland Mills (6-2)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: This is the game everyone has been waiting for, although Hammond's 22-12 loss to Wilde Lake last week takes some of the edge off. Both teams need a win to make the playoffs. A victory would clinch a tie for the county title for Oakland Mills, the defending county champ and a 40-0 winner over Mount Hebron. Oakland Mills is unbeaten in league play. QB Irving Conwell completed 11 of 15 passes for 227 yards and three touchdowns. RB Fardan Carter gained 102 yards on 12 carries. Antiwan Jones caught four passes for 52 yards and one touchdown. Hammond was held to 108 yards by Wilde Lake, with QB Tim Spruill rushing for 65 yards.

Mount Hebron (2-6)

at Atholton (6-2)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Raiders are on a roll with three straight wins, including two shutouts, since losing to Oakland Mills, 28-6. Last week they defeated Centennial, 40-0. RB Ricky

Trott gained 120 yards on 11 carries, and FB Jon Sanford had 107 yards on two carries before injuring his ankle. Centennial failed to score five times from inside Atholton's 10-yard line. Mount Hebron lost to Oakland Mills, 40-0.

Centennial (4-4) at Glenelg (2-6)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: After two straight losses this is a chance for the Eagles to get back on the winning track. Glenelg has lost five straight, and been shut out in four of those five games while giving up 203 points. Centennial lost to Atholton, 41-0, but produced 295 yards on offense. Eagles QB John Webster completed five of 12 passes for 103 yards. George Mitroka caught four passes for 99 yards.

Howard (5-3) at Wilde Lake (5-3)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Howard defeated Glenelg last week, 36-0, for its second straight victory, while Wilde Lake ended a two-game skid by handing Hammond its first defeat, 22-12. The Lions got 120 yards rushing on 14 carries from Anthony Haywood and another 95 yards from Dedrick Colbert. Wilde Lake was led by Dain

Lewis (15 carries, 92 yards) and Sean Jefferson (17, 73).
