Ce­cil County Foot­ball Cap­sules

No. 3 Elk­ton at Jop­pa­towne When: 7 tonight Last Meet­ing: Sept. 25, 2015 – Elk­ton won 45-0

Out­look: The Elk­ton foot­ball team will face a much dif­fer­ent test this week­end than its been ac­cus­tomed to play­ing.

Af­ter open­ing the sea­son against three non- di­vi­sional foes with a com­bined 19 wins last sea­son, the third- ranked Golden Elks is pre­par­ing to face a team tonight that won only two in 2015.

While a mis­match on pa­per, the Golden Elks ( 2- 1) must avoid let­ting down their guard against the host Mariners ( 0- 3) or risk suf­fer­ing a po­ten­tial up­set.

Look for the Ce­cil Squad to give ju­nior run­ning back Raiquon Estep early car­ries as he at­tempts to re­peat last week’s per­for­mance when he rushed for four touch­downs in a one- score win over Delaware’s Car­avel. Es­tab­lish­ing an early ground game and scoring of­ten will al­low Elk­ton to set the tone and run away with the fi­nal score.

The Elks shut out Jop­pa­towne last year to be­gin Susque­hanna Divi­sion play and there’s no rea­son not to as­sume a sim­i­lar out­come this go- around.

Per­ryville at Har­ford Tech When: 7 tonight Last Meet­ing: Sept. 25, 2015 – Per­ryville won 32-18

Out­look: A year ago, the Per­ryville foot­ball team re­sponded to an 0-3 start with a lop­sided win over vis­it­ing Har­ford Tech to kick off Susque­hanna Divi­sion com­pe­ti­tion. One sea­son later, the Pan­thers (03) find them­selves in a sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion and primed for an­other Week 4 show­down with the Co­bras (2-1).

While their records may sug­gest a mis­match on pa­per, Per­ryville opened eyes last week­end when it nearly up­set fourth-ranked Havre de Grace on the road. An­tic­i­pate the team try­ing to keep that mo­men­tum rolling into this week­end

Se­nior run­ning back Zac Zacer­ous will likely pave the way for the Pan­thers af­ter rushing for a pair of touch­downs in Week 3, while his ath­letic quar­ter­back, Do­minic Gugliotta, will at­tempt to fol­low up on a week in which he also added a run­ing score.

There’s no way to tell which way this matchup will fall, but if last year’s con­test be­tween the two squads is any in­di­ca­tion, Per­ryville will be tough to take down.

Pat­ter­son Mill at North East When: 7 tonight Last Meet­ing: Sept. 25, 2015 – Pat­ter­son Mill won 17-7

Out­look: Both the North East and Pat­ter­son Mill foot­ball teams have had their share of dif­fi­cul­ties through the first three weeks of the reg­u­lar sea­son, with both teams record­ing zero wins while be­ing outscored by a com­bined 252-35.

Des­per­a­tion not to be­gin the sea­son 0-4 will make this game com­pelling as both teams take the grid­iron hop­ing to find the win col­umn for the first time this year.

Led by first-year coach Chris Sch­le­ich, the In­di­ans hope to snap a 16-game los­ing streak. Their sce­nario is eerily sim­i­lar to their county ri­val, Ris­ing Sun, which ended their own 16-game los­ing streak in the same week last year.
