Games to watch

September 19, 2007|By GLENN GRAHAM

FIELD HOCKEY

River Hill @ Glenelg

WHEN -- Tomorrow, 3:30 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- The county title appears to be up for grabs, with a handful of teams capable of bringing home a plaque. Defending county champion Glenelg, with a talented front line led by senior Amy Thompson, won't surrender without a fight. The Gladiators' first county test will come against the Hawks, who are banking on a largely new nucleus after graduating 13 players from last year's 11-6 team.

GIRLS SOCCER

No. 5 River Hill @ No. 10 Centennial

WHEN -- Tomorrow, 5:30 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- River Hill, the county and Class 3A state champion last season, saw its 22-game winning streak come to an end with a 2-0 loss to Severna Park on Sept. 8. But don't feel sorry for the Hawks, who have plenty of talent, led by senior Erica Suter. The Eagles are one of only a couple of teams in the county who can match up with the Hawks. Senior midfielder Elsa Wu leads the way, with help from Amanda Matthews and Alyssa Vorce.

FOOTBALL

No. 14 Wilde Lake @ Marriotts Ridge

WHEN -- Friday, 3 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- After going 1-9 in their first varsity season last year, the host Mustangs are off to a 2-0 start after last week's 38-24 victory over Mount Hebron. The Wildecats also are off to a 2-0 start. The visitors will try to control the clock with a running game that grinded out 394 yards in a 28-10 win over Atholton on Friday.

BOYS SOCCER

No. 8 Mount Hebron @ Hammond

WHEN -- Monday, 5:30 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- This is a game featuring two state champions - Mount Hebron captured the Class 3A title last season, while the host Bears won the 2A crown. With the Vikings dropping to 2A this fall, these teams likely will see one another again in the regional playoffs.
