Games To Watch

October 10, 2007|By KATHERINE DUNN AND PAT O'MALLEY

BOYS SOCCER

No. 3 Calvert Hall @ No. 1 McDonogh

WHEN -- Today, 4 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- When these Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference powers met in September, the Cardinals came from behind for a 2-1 win on Joe Jones' goal in the 64th minute. McDonogh played without All-Metro striker Chris Agorsor, who has missed most of the season with a hip injury. But Agorsor is expected to be back this time. Cardinals coach Andy Moore said Jones' goal and Christian Barreiro's in the first meeting were "highlight-reel goals" and the Cardinals probably will need at least one more like them to get past a tough Eagles defense led by sweeper Jake Levin.

FOOTBALL

No. 8 Parkville @ No. 9 Hereford

WHEN -- Friday, 7 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- This Baltimore County Class 4A-3A showdown matches two 5-0 teams. Each team is 4-0 in the league and the winner could end up taking the league title. The outcome of the game looks like it will come down to how Parkville's defense does against the host Bulls' offense. The visiting Lions outscored their opponents, 148-9, while the Bulls have outscored theirs, 232-70. Before this season, Hereford dominated the county 3A-2A league, winning eight titles in 11 years under coach Steve Turnbaugh (128-21). In their reclassification to the larger-schools 3A, the Bulls have dominated the 4A-3A league along with Parkville. Bulls running backs Lonnie Liggins, Jason Fischer and Hasani Cromwell, plus outstanding place kicker Adam Yates will put a lot of pressure on the Lions. Ian Sadon, a senior running back/linebacker, leads the Lions along with quarterback Asa Laboo. Sadon and Tai-Jee Glenn-Akles roam from sideline to sideline at linebacker and that will be mandatory against the high-scoring Bulls.

Randallstown vs. No. 13 Eastern Tech

WHEN -- Friday, 7 p.m.

WHERE -- CCBC-Essex

OUTLOOK -- This is a big 3A-2A showdown with both teams at 5-0. The visiting Rams have outscored their opponents, 138-27, and the Mavericks have outscored theirs, 203-27. Randallstown is coming off a 41-7 romp over Pikesville, while Eastern Tech routed New Town, 52-6. The passing combination of Ed Perry to Derrick Flickling should concern the Mavericks' defense led by linebacker Derryck Davis and defensive backs, Andre Hall and Thomas Edwards. Perry is a mobile quarterback who can make things happen. Eastern Tech's running backs, Darian Conners, Edwards and Hall will be a load for the Rams defense.
