Games to watch

September 26, 2007|By PAT O'MALLEY

FIELD HOCKEY

No. 8 Chesapeake @ No. 1 Severna Park

WHEN -- Tomorrow, 5 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- The visiting Cougars, who entered this week at 5-0, will find out if they are serious contenders for the county league title along with the top Falcons (also 5-0 through last week), No. 3 South River and No. 4 Broadneck. Chesapeake hosted South River yesterday and now face the defending champs and their deep firepower. Lauren Gottleib and Megan Majerowicz will try to crack the Falcons' airtight defense, which is led by Julie Gardner and Casey Kliebel.

GIRLS SOCCER

No. 3 Severna Park @ Chesapeake

WHEN -- Tomorrow, 5 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- The Falcons were 3-0 in the county league through last week and 4-1 overall, while the Cougars were 3-0 in the county and 4-1-1 overall. Courtney Lupinek kept the Cougars unbeaten in the league with a first-half goal to edge Southern, 1-0, last Wednesday. The teams played again yesterday. Tomorrow's game will gauge whether it's going to be a two-team race in the county between Severna Park and No. 12 Arundel, or a three-team race.

FOOTBALL

No. 5 Arundel @ at Southern

WHEN -- Friday, 6:30 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- This was expected to match two undefeated teams, but the host Bulldogs (2-1) were upset, 21-20, by Northeast last week. The Wildcats (3-0) are coming off a 30-18 win over North County. Southern had trouble with Northeast quarterback Mike Tibbs, who threw for 107 yards and ran for 150, and this week it faces All-County quarterback Nick Elko and his talented teammates. The Wildcats have outscored their opponents, 92-54. Southern has outscored its opponents, 48-34.

North County @ No. 8 Broadneck

WHEN -- Friday, 6:30 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- The visiting Knights played Arundel tough for three quarters before the Wildcats pulled away in the fourth quarter Friday night. Broadneck coach Jeff Herrick won't take the Knights lightly, especially after escaping Ferndale with a 13-6 win last season against a North County team that finished 2-8. The Bruins led Glen Burnie by eight points at halftime Friday before pulling away to win, 34-6. Broadneck scored 13 points in the third quarter, starting with a 50-yard touchdown run by J.J. Hicks.
