Games To Watch

October 17, 2007|By PAT O'MALLEY

FIELD HOCKEY

No. 1 South River @ No. 4 Severna Park

WHEN -- Tomorrow, 5 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- The visiting Seahawks are undefeated in county league play and will be looking to eliminate the defending county champion Falcons from contention. Severna Park has two losses and is in fourth place behind Broadneck and Chesapeake, which have one loss each. The Seahawks are led by defensive ace Hope Battista.

VOLLEYBALL

South River @ No. 5 Severna Park

WHEN -- Tomorrow, 6 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- This match could determine who plays in the county championship match Nov. 1 at South River. The surging Seahawks control their own destiny, with tomorrow's match and their final regular season contest at home against defending county champion Broadneck on Oct. 30. This week started with South River and Broadneck at 6-0, followed by Severna Park (6-1) and Arundel (5-1). The top two teams will play in the championship match. South River dealt Arundel its first loss, 3-0, Thursday. Junior hitters Kim Kolarik, Meliss Patterson and Sabrina Walsh lead South River. The host Falcons are led by senior setter Elizabeth Bell and senior hitters Brittany Lilley and Jennifer Haag.

FOOTBALL

Severna Park @ No. 4 Arundel

WHEN -- Friday, 6.30 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- After losing its first two games, Severna Park has won four in a row and holds fifth place in the Class 4A East region. Four teams will qualify for the playoffs, and an upset of the Wildcats would be a huge boost to Severna Park's chances. To win, the Falcons need their Sean Price-led defense to step up against the prolific no-huddle spread offense run by Wildcats QB Nick Elko, who has receivers led by Brandon Johnson-Farrell (37 receptions, 547 yards, nine touchdowns) and Alec Lemon (25-368-7).

No. 6 Old Mill @ North County

WHEN -- Friday, 6.30 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- Old Mill (5-1), which holds second place in the Class 4A East region, plays a Knights team that is 4-2 and in fourth place. The visiting Patriots' passing game, guided by junior QB Grant Enders, is the main concern for North County. The Knights need to put pressure on Enders and force turnovers, as they did Friday in an 18-7 win at Northeast. In that game, Steadman Beatty got three of the four fumbles recovered by the Knights. North County visits Severna Park next week in a crucial game.
