Weekend featured football games

November 07, 1997|By John W. Stewart

Francis Scott Key (3-6) at Williamsport (6-3)

When: Tonight, 7: 30

Outlook: Jason Zinkand goes into the final game trailing leader Adam Crowl by six points (78-72) in the county scoring race. Last week, Key's senior running back ran for 138 yards and a touchdown, and kicked an 18-yard field goal and an extra point in a 48-24 loss to Catoctin, the team's third straight defeat. Williamsport comes in off a loss to Middletown (its three losses were by shutout), and features QB Chad McAllister.

Liberty (1-8) at North Carroll (2-7)

When: Tonight, 7: 30

Outlook: Liberty's Joel Denning, a senior, and Calvin Stacey, ......TC junior, ran for 200 yards, and each scored a touchdown in a 21-12 defeat by Westminster. They could be in position to do as well again against North Carroll, whose defense has given up at least three touchdowns in every game and allowed more than 40 points in three of its last five. Liberty, though, has had trouble stopping a running game in recent weeks. That sets the stage for county scoring/rushing leader Adam Crowl (a top-10 metro area rusher) and friends. They ran for more than 325 yards and scored four touchdowns (equaling a season high) last week, but much of it came in the second half after Thomas Johnson had built a 42-6 lead in what became a 49-26 victory.

Westminster (4-5) at South Carroll (3-6)

When: Tonight, 7: 30

Outlook: Westminster has alternated winning and losing for the last six weeks, but, coming off a win last week, that could change as the team seeks a .500 record. The Owls can present a solid group, having scored at least three touchdowns in each of the last three games, and a defense that has played well in two of the last three. South Carroll, 2-0 against county foes, has the "best county team" rating in its sights. The Cavaliers have improving junior QB John Luster and running back Jason Tourangeau. The game also has the county's leading receiver, the Owls' Novell Washington. Both teams have self-destructed on several occasions, so mistakes could be key.
