Games to watch

October 03, 2007|By PAT O'MALLEY


No. 7 Severna Park @ No. 4 Broadneck

WHEN -- Tomorrow, 6 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- This is the renewal of the county's best volleyball rivalry. Both teams started the week at 2-0 in county league play. The winner will take a giant step toward playing in the county championship. Both teams' hitting is strong, with senior Brittany Lilley leading the Falcons (4-0) and junior Caroline Jacobs pacing the Bruins (3-0).


No. 3 Severna Park @ No. 4 Broadneck

WHEN -- Tomorrow, 7 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- Starting the week in a second-place tie with Broadneck and Chesapeake, all 4-1 in county action behind South River (5-0), the visiting and defending county champion Falcons will have to play well to avoid another league loss.


No. 2 Broadneck @ No. 7 Severna Park

WHEN -- Tomorrow, 7 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- Broadneck (4-0-1 county league) and Severna Park (5-0) trail unranked Old Mill (6-0) in the county standings. A berth in the county final on Oct. 24 at Chesapeake could be on the line.


No. 10 Broadneck @ Chesapeake

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

OUTLOOK -- The visiting Bruins (2-2) were upset, 18-16, at home by North County. The Cougars (1-3) nearly beat Severna Park in Lake Shore before losing, 14-12. Chesapeake upset South River, 12-11, in Edgewater the week before. Broadneck got its two touchdowns last week on passes from Kyle Colleran to J.J. Hicks. Cougars quarterback Rob Burton nearly pulled off the upset of Severna Park with a 15-yard scoring pass in the final minute, but his pass for a two-point conversion was broken up. Broadneck's secondary gave up three touchdown passes in its loss to North County.

Southern @ North County

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

OUTLOOK -- Southern (2-2) has dropped two in a row and hopes to get well in Ferndale this week, but it won't be easy. The Bulldogs are coming off a 45-34 loss to No. 5 Arundel. Southern led 27-24 after three quarters but couldn't stop Arundel's Nick Elko, who threw two of his five touchdowns in the fourth quarter and ran for a score. The Bulldogs' defense has to rise to the occasion against the Knights' passing game and get a big rushing game from Ryan Sullivan to win.
