Har­ford Tech at Bohemia Manor When: 7 p.m. Fri­day Last Meet­ing: Oct. 2, 2015 – Har­ford Tech won, 26-19

Out­look: The Bohemia Manor and Har­ford Tech foot­ball teams will face off tonight hop­ing to find the win col­umn af­ter they each lost their re­spec­tive Susque­hanna Di­vi­sion open­ers a week ago.

The fo­cus for the Ea­gles (2-2 over­all, 0-1 Susque­hanna), who al­lowed 19 unan­swered sec­ond-half points in last week’s loss to Ris­ing Sun, will be to put to­gether four quar­ters of foot­ball. Against the Tigers, they led by one score at the break but suf­fered a fum­ble on the open­ing drive of the third quar­ter and never re­cov­ered.

Ex­pect Bo Manor to con­cen­trate on ball con­trol dur­ing the fi­nal 24 min­utes against Har­ford Tech (2-2, 0-1), pre­vent­ing turnovers on of­fense and dic­tat­ing the clock with a run-heavy at­tack. Mean­while, the Ea­gles de­fense must do a bet­ter job of get­ting the op­pos­ing of­fense off the field in the wake of a sec­ond half against the Tigers in which they were gashed for a 14-play, 90-yard drive that cul­mi­nated in the go-ahead touch­down.

Jop­pa­towne at North East When: 7 tonight Last Meet­ing: Oct. 2, 2015 – Jop­pa­towne won, 3512

Out­look: Fresh off their big­gest of­fen­sive out­burst in more than a decade, the North East foot­ball team will look to con­tinue light­ing up the score­board tonight when they host win­less Jop­pa­towne.

Al­though they lost, the In­di­ans (0-4 over­all, 0-1 Susque­hanna) scored 36 points against Patterson Mill last Fri­day, creat­ing plenty of mo­men­tum as they pre­pare for their sec­ond­straight home game against a team with­out a win.

Against the Huskies, North East found run­ning room on the ground en route to six trips to the end zone. Look for a sim­i­lar strat­egy tonight against the Mariners (0-4, 0-1), who al­lowed 228 rush­ing yards to run­ning back Raiquon Estep and three to­tal rush­ing touch­downs in last Fri­day’s loss to Elk­ton.

Per­ryville at Patterson Mill When: 7 tonight Last Meet­ing: Oct. 5, 2015 – Per­ryville won 28-14

Out­look: A sec­ond­straight road game to be­gin Susque­hanna Di­vi­sion play greets Per­ryville in Week 5 as it takes a bus ride to Bel Air to visit Patterson Mill.

The Pan­thers (1-3 over­all, 1-0 di­vi­sion) will need to over­come the ag­gres­sive play style of the Huskies (13, 1-0), who will try to cap­i­tal­ize on last week’s suc­cess when they scored six touch­downs in a win over North East.

A good way for Per­ryville to main­tain con­trol of the score­board will be to score early and then gen­er­ate a de­fen­sive stand on the en­su­ing Patterson Mill pos­ses­sion.

Ex­pect the Pan­thers to pound the foot­ball and cre­ate a down­field pass­ing at­tack­ing once a ground game has been es­tab­lished. The Huskies’ run de­fense proved vul­ner­a­ble against the In­di­ans, there­fore it’s likely that Per­ryville coach Chris John­son will be hop­ing to move the sticks—and find the score­board—us­ing a sim­i­lar blue­print.
