Hawks take flight, Cougars drop to 7

Cecil Whig - - SPORTS - WHIG STAFF RE­PORT

North Har­ford wins for a fourth-straight week and en­ters the Top 5 in this week’s edi­tion of the UCBAC Foot­ball Power Poll. Fall­ston drops from the elite (record and last week’s rank­ings in paren­the­ses).

1. Bel Air (5-0, 1) — The Bob­cats han­dled their fi­nal non-con­fer­ence game, mean­ing that if they’re go­ing to lose this sea­son, it will have to come against a Ch­e­sa­peake Divi­sion op­po­nent.

2. Aberdeen (3-2, 2) — An im­pres­sive win over fourth-ranked Havre de Grace will keep the Ea­gles near the top of this power poll.

3. Elk­ton (4-1, 3) — Joe Scud­eri’s in­ter­cep­tion in the red zone dur­ing the fi­nal minute pre­served the Golden Elks’ 27-20 win over vis­it­ing Ris­ing Sun on Fri­day.

4. North Har­ford (4-1, 8) — A fourth-straight win, this time over Edge­wood, has the Hawks soar­ing into the Top 5 for the first time this year.

5. Havre de Grace (4-1, 4) — The War­riors’ lop­sided loss to No. 2 Aberdeen was the team’s first de­feat of the sea­son.

6. C.M. Wright (3-2, 7) — The Mus­tangs out­lasted Fall­ston and move up a spot in the poll as a re­sult.

7. Fall­ston (2-3, 5) — Quite the tum­ble for the Cougars, who fall out of the Top 5 fol­low­ing their loss to un­ranked C.M. Wright.

8. Edge­wood (3-2, 6) — Af­ter open­ing with three wins against non-divi­sion foes, the Rams have dropped con­sec­u­tive games to Ch­e­sa­peake Divi­sion op­po­nents.

9. Ris­ing Sun (1-4, 9) — Joe Jones was a beast on Fri­day for the Tigers, re­turn­ing a pair of fum­bles for TDs and pro­duc­ing a huge kick re­turn across mid­field to set up a po­ten­tial game-ty­ing score.

10. Per­ryville (2-3, 10) — Two-straight Susque­hanna Divi­sion road games, two-straight wins for the Pan­thers, who are pre­par­ing to host re­gion ri­val Bo Manor next week­end.

11. Bo Manor (3-2, 12) — Nice bounce-back win for the Ea­gles, whose de­fense and run game pro­duced a vic­tory over Har­ford Tech.

12. Har­ford Tech (2-3, 11) — The Co­bras have dropped con­sec­u­tive games to Ce­cil County op­po­nents.

13. Jop­pa­towne (1-4, 14) — Lead­ing 6-0 at half­time, the Mariners pulled away to earn a road win over North East on Fri­day.

14. Pat­ter­son Mill (1-4, 13) — The Huskies had no an­swer for Per­ryville full­back Zac Zacer­ous, who gashed the Har­ford County team for four rush­ing touch­downs.

15. North East (0-5, 15) — The In­di­ans had a lead for a sec­ond-straight week but were un­able to find a way to win against Jop­pa­towne.
