Week 2 proved much better than did Week 1 for The Baltimore Sun's highest-ranked high school football teams. Last week, four of the top five lost; this week, four of the top five won.

No. 1 McDonogh led the way with the Baltimore area's first major win over an out-of-state power this season. The Eagles traveled to Cincinnati, Ohio, and knocked off Elder, 24-14, which was ranked No. 25 in MaxPreps’ Xcellent 25 national rankings last week.

The only loss among the top five teams was No. 4 Calvert Hall’s 23-0 setback at Good Counsel, preventing the Cardinals from building on last week’s win over No. 6 Franklin.

Check Tuesday’s paper and for the new Top 15. In the meantime, here’s a look at how the Top 15 fared this weekend:
