Games to Watch

October 03, 2007|By KATHERINE DUNN AND PAT O'MALLEY

FIELD HOCKEY

No. 2 Bryn Mawr @ No. 1 South River

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

OUTLOOK -- The top ranking likely will be on the line in the third meeting in four years between these perennial powers. The Mawrtians won one-goal games in each previous meeting, and both teams were unbeaten going into yesterday. Look for strong defenses on both sides, anchored by Bryn Mawr goalie Abby Bisbee and South River goalie Virginia Jorden. Sarah Cole leads the Mawrtians with six goals and two assists, while Brooke Griffin has seven goals and five assists for the Seahawks.

FOOTBALL

No. 1 Loyola @ No. 2 McDonogh

WHEN -- Saturday, 2:30 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- The winner of this game will be in the driver's seat to win the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship, which these two and Gilman shared in 2006. Going into the conference opener for both teams, the visiting Dons (5-0) have been led by QB Leon Kinnard, RB Terence Garvin and a solid defense led by LB Bubba Harris. The Eagles (2-2) lost to a pair of top Pennsylvania prep schools in Penn Charter and Malvern Prep. Coach Dom Damico scheduled those two schools, who have 19-year olds and fifth-year seniors, to prepare his team for rigors of the A Conference. The Eagles will be looking for the kind of game they got Saturday from sophomore QB Rudy Johnson and WR Gerrard Sheppard, who hooked up for two touchdowns in a 35-6 romp at Washington's Landon.

No. 4 Dunbar vs. No. 6 Edmondson

WHEN -- Saturday, 6 p.m.

WHERE -- Poly

OUTLOOK -- This is a meeting between the defending Class 1A state champion Poets (4-0) and the defending Class 2A state champion Red Storm (3-1). The Poets, who avenged last season's loss to City with a 56-6 rout of the Knights on Friday, now have a chance for redemption against the Red Storm, a 12-0 victor over the Poets last year. Dunbar RB Tavon Austin has been unstoppable this season.
