Featured weekend football games

September 19, 1997|By John W. Stewart

North Hagerstown (0-2) at

Francis Scott Key (0-2)

When: Tonight, 7: 30

Outlook: Key's losses were to North Carroll and Middletown, and North Hagerstown's to Urbana and Walkersville. The home team features QB Tony Mallardi, RB Jason Zinkand on offense, and DE Kevin DeCarlo and LB Jason Wiles on defense. North Hagerstown QB Hunter Cross dominates the team's offense as a running threat in addition to his passing. He was second in the State Class 2A high hurdles last spring.

Southern-AA (2-0) at

North Carroll (1-1)

When: Tonight, 7: 30.

Outlook: North Carroll has had it both ways: Struggling (five turnovers) to beat Key in overtime, then playing very well (rallying from a 20-6 deficit for a tie at 20) in a 27-20 loss to then No. 9 (now No. 8) Hereford. Now, the Panthers get a Southern-AA team that whipped Queen Anne's, 40-16, then needed a fourth-quarter touchdown on a fumble return to get past a South Carroll team that ended with 324 rushing yards.

Westminster (1-1) at

Old Mill (1-1)

When: Tonight, 7: 30.

Outlook: Westminster will be coming off an emotional victory over Severna Park that capped a celebration of the school's 50th football anniversary. Earlier, the Owls had been shut out by North County. Old Mill, a 38-0 winner over Northeast last week, will make it three Anne Arundel teams in a row for the Owls. In the Northeast victory, Everet Anderson rushed for a school-record 243 yards (he has 279 in two starts) and three touchdowns. Junior QB Craig Hall has 13 pass completions for 279 yards and three touchdowns.

Liberty (0-2) at

Georgetown Prep (1-1)

When: Tomorrow, 1.

Outlook: Liberty has surrendered 68 points in two games, including 42 against No. 2-ranked Mount St. Joseph, but the matchup with the Rockville private schools figures to be a much closer. Georgetown Prep lost to Good Counsel, 13-7, and beat Richard Montgomery, 21-0. The top RBs are Sean Gormley (167 yards) and Bill Gerish (151 yards, two touchdowns). QB Andrew Toussaint complements them with his passing (11-for-27 for 124 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions).

South Carroll (1-1) at

Rockville (1-1)

When: Tomorrow, 2.

Outlook: South Carroll will be seeking to rebound from a 12-7 loss to Southern-AA, after being ahead 7-6 in the fourth quarter. RB Jason Tourangeau has 245 rushing yards, two touchdowns, and a 39.2-yard punting average. Rockville, a Class 2A school, defeated Bethesda-Chevy Chase, then lost to Poolesville, 21-16. Jeremy Chronopoulos is 16-for-29 for 113 passing yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Speedster Kevin Harper, the team's best receiver (four receptions, 24 yards, one touchdown), has returned two kickoffs for touchdowns.
