Football Games To Watch

September 29, 2006|By Lem Satterfield and Pat O'Malley

Baltimore City

No. 7 Dunbar (2-1) vs. No. 3 City (3-0) @ Poly

When -- Tomorrow, 7 p.m.

Outlook -- The city Division I clash matches two of the league's defending tri-champions in an early-season showdown won by Dunbar last year, 30-6. Led by sophomore running back Tavon Austin, the Poets have outscored their past two opponents, 95-8, to rebound from a season-opening 19-6 loss to No. 1 Loyola. The Knights, meanwhile, have shut down their three opponents by a combined 88-6 with two shutouts. Defensive backs Joshua Rushing and Sheldon Waller and LB Dominick Roseborough lead a defense that has forced 13 turnovers over the past two games.

No. 10 Edmondson (2-1) @ Mervo (3-0)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- Coming off its first loss entering this city Division I matchup, Edmondson (1-1 league) must stop junior Jamal Lake, who returned an interception for a 99-yard touchdown, broke up a potential game-winning pass in the end zone, and tied the game with a 41-yard scoring reception in last week's 20-6 win over Carver.

A. Arundel County

Old Mill (2-1) @ No. 5 Broadneck (3-0)

When -- Tonight, 6:30

Outlook -- After losing its season opener to Arundel, Old Mill has bounced back to win two in a row behind the passing and running of quarterback Kelian Stevens, who has four touchdowns passing and four rushing. He will need to have a big game tonight against Broadneck's defense, which held Arundel's no-huddle offense to 13 points last week.

Baltimore County

No. 11 Parkville (3-0) @ Kenwood (3-0)

When -- Tonight 7

Outlook -- Parkville (2-0 league) enters the county 4A-3A conference clash averaging 34 points behind RB Russell Winborn, but will be up against its most difficult opponent in the Bluebirds (2-0 league).

Overlea (3-0) @ Milford Mill (3-0)

When -- Tomorrow, 1 p.m.

Outlook -- During what was a topsy-turvy season of a year ago, the visiting Falcons (2-0 league) lost twice to the Millers (2-0 league), who emerged to win the county's 2A-1A crown. The Millers have outscored their past two opponents, 68-0.

Harford County

Joppatowne (2-1) @ No. 12 North Harford (2-0)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- Joppatowne won big, 41-21, last week to rebound from a season-opening Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference loss. But this Chesapeake Division opener comes against a North Harford squad that is averaging 33 points.

Howard County

Wilde Lake (2-1) @ No. 2 River Hill (3-0)

When -- Tomorrow, 1 p.m.

Outlook -- Wilde Lake may face an uphill climb after being stunned last week by its first loss ever to Centennial (17-0), a team River Hill defeated, 28-7, in its season opener.

Glenelg (2-1) @ Long Reach (2-1)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- Even though it's early, Glenelg and Long Reach must be concerned about playoff chances. RB Brandon Devers leads the visiting Gladiators, and RB Keith Richardson leads the Lightning.
