Weekend football matchups

September 06, 1996|By Rick Belz

Atholton (0-0) at

Northeast-AA (0-0)

When: Tonight, 7

Outlook: The Raiders defeated Northeast, 35-0, last season. Northeast has a seasoned backfield, but an inexperienced line and not much depth. Atholton is led by T Marcus Boykins, T Paul McElheny and G Ross Benson.

Glenelg (0-0) at

South Carroll (0-0)

When: Tonight, 7: 30

Outlook: After losing their starting QB Beau Pich to River Hill by redistricting, and getting their third coach in as many years, the Gladiators are in a tough spot against a bigger school. Tackle David Boteler is a key player for Glenelg.


Southwestern (0-0) at

Howard (0-0)

When: Tonight, 7: 30

Outlook: The Lions defeated Southwestern, 22-6, last season, and should have enough back to beat this Baltimore City school again. Linemen Aaron Burley and Brian Neal and QB Brian Broadus are the players to watch for Howard.

Hammond (0-0) at

Dundalk (0-0)

When: Tomorrow, 1 p.m.

Outlook: The Bears defeated Dundalk 27-6 last season, and, led by returning QB Josh Zillmer and WR Jerry Oliver, should get this season off to another good start.

Liberty (0-0) at

Centennial (0-0)

When: Tomorrow, 1 p.m.

Outlook: These teams didn't play last season when Liberty had one of the most high-powered offenses in the area. The Lions promise to be strong again, while Centennial has holes at QB, LB and DE. Lineman Aaron Perkins and TB Scott Bross are Centennial's keys.

No. 12 Aberdeen (0-0) at

Oakland Mills (0-0)

When: Tomorrow, 1 p.m.

Outlook: The defending county champion Scorpions handled Aberdeen, 27-6, last season, but have suffered heavy losses. Aberdeen returns most of its squad that finished 8-2 and ranked No. 10. RB Fardan Carter and FB Bryan Cole lead Oakland Mills.

Harford Tech (0-0) at

Mount Hebron (0-0)

When: Tomorrow, 1: 30 p.m.

Outlook: This was a 54-0 victory for the Vikings last season, and Harford Tech is not much improved while Mount Hebron looks significantly better. Players to watch for Mount Hebron are QB John Smith and TB Mike Machiran.

No. 14 Wilde Lake (0-0) at

St. Stevens/St. Agnes (0-0)

When: Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Wildecats are expecting a super season and this is a beatable opponent. TE Tony Jackson, TB Dain Lewis and FB Kyle Leibe will lead a wishbone attack against the Northern Virginia private school.

River Hill (0-0) at

Long Reach (0-0)

When: Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

Outlook: This is the first of two meetings this season between these two new schools, and Long Reach appears to have the early edge. NG Savoy Saunders and RB Clarence Reid are players to watch for Long Reach while QB Beau Pich and RB Mike Kelly will lead River Hill.
