Football matchups

November 01, 1996|By Rick Belz

Glenelg (3-5) at Centennial (5-3)

When: Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

Outlook: Centennial switched to a power-I in the second half to defeat Hammond last week, 14-0. Scott Bross rushed 13 times for 98 yards, and Keith Williams rushed 23 times for 65 yards and two touchdowns. QB Ryan Gielen completed seven of 15 for 88 yards. Chip Harrison and Jason Zolak each caught three passes. Glenelg was unable to mount a significant offense against Wilde Lake and lost, 42-0. The Gladiators are a running team that

stresses ball control. Centennial defeated Glenelg last season, 38-12.

Howard (3-5) at Atholton (5-3)

When: Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

Outlook: Atholton has won four straight. Howard has lost three straight. Atholton coach Kevin Kelly played for Howard in the 1970s. In a 34-14 win over Mount Hebron last week, Lavar Macon rushed for 62 yards one touchdown, Cian Oatts for 56 yards and Lamar Porter for 29 yards and two touchdowns. QB Sean Williams completed eight of 10 passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns. Sean Jefferson and David Whiting each caught three passes. Josh Neal and Ryan Oleszewski each made six solo tackles. Long Reach shut out Howard, 14-0. Atholton beat the Lions last season, 41-15.

Long Reach (3-5) at Hammond (4-4)

When: Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

Outlook: First-year Lightning coach Pete Hughes returns to Hammond, where he was defensive coordinator for 10 years. His team is coming off a big win over Howard, 14-0. QB Greg Matusewitch was the Lightning Player of the Game with 50 yards rushing and 80 yards passing. He completed four of nine. Hammond needs to win to guarantee a .500 season with tough Atholton ahead next week. Hammond started a new QB in last week's 14-7 loss to Centennial, sophomore Antoine Oliver, who completed five of 11 passes for 86 yards. But Hammond's rushing game was shut down.

Mount Hebron (3-5) at Oakland Mills (5-3)

When: Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

Outlook: Oakland Mills has won five straight, including two shutouts. The Scorpions rolled over River Hill, 42-0, last week, as RB Fardan Carter scored three touchdowns. It was 35-0 after one quarter. Mount Hebron's Ryan Burgess caught a 59-yard touchdown pass in last week's 34-14 loss to Atholton, a game that was 34-0 at halftime. Last season, Oakland Mills defeated Mount Hebron, 40-0.

Wilde Lake (8-0) at River Hill (0-8)

When: Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

Outlook: This is the season's biggest mismatch but should give the Wildecats ample opportunities to work on their passing game before the playoffs. In last week's 42-0 win over Glenelg, the Wildecats opened up a bit offensively. QB Derek Bell completed six of seven passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns. River Hill lost to Oakland Mills last week, 42-0.
