Games To Watch

October 10, 2007|By PAT O'MALLEY


Severna Park @ South River

WHEN -- Friday, 6.30 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- The loser of this game between 3-2 teams will likely be knocked out of the Class 4A East playoff picture. Four teams will qualify for the regional, and a team with three losses or more doesn't figure to get in with Arundel at 5-0, Old Mill at 4-1 and four teams at 3-2. The visiting Falcons' triple-option is running smoothly under QB Pat Morrison and is more versatile than South River's run-oriented offense with QB Bobby Cooper.

Gilman @ No.11 Arch. Spalding

WHEN -- Friday, 7 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- This is a meeting between the Greyhounds (2-3) of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference and the host Cavaliers (4-1) of the B Conference. After routing St. Mary's of the B Conference, 36-0, in the season opener for both teams, Gilman lost three in a row until Saturday's 14-10 victory over Calvert Hall. Spalding lost to Mount St. Joseph, 47-14, in its opener, but it has rebounded to win four in a row. If Evan Hockel (521 yards, eight TDs) and fellow running backs Nick Whittles (366) and Nick Kuhl (289) can control the football, the Cavaliers have a chance to win.


Old Mill @ No. 8 Severna Park

WHEN -- Tuesday, 5 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- This game will likely determine which of these two teams will play in the county final Oct. 24. Broadneck, which has defeated both, is likely to be the other team in the final. The host Falcons, the defending county champions, have a lot of firepower in Michael Rose and Sean Bunoski. Old Mill's scoring threats are Kyle Arrildt and Sean Perdomo. Both teams were shut out, 1-0, by Broadneck last week and will be looking to get their offenses geared up.
