North East at Ris­ing Sun When: 7 tonight Last Meet­ing: Oct. 10, 2015 – Ris­ing Sun won, 38-6

Out­look: Since the 2014 sea­son, per­haps no teams have gone in more dras­tic di­rec­tions than arch ri­vals Ris­ing Sun and North East.

Af­ter go­ing win­less in 2014, the Tigers re­sponded with six vic­to­ries the fol­low­ing year. Mean­while, the In­di­ans, who won three of their fi­nal six reg­u­larsea­son games in 2014, are cur­rently im­mersed in an 18-game los­ing streak.

Af­ter a pair of nearmisses the last two weeks, North East (0-5 over­all, 0-2 Susque­hanna) will look to make its long-awaited re­turn to the win col­umn tonight when it vis­its Ris­ing Sun (1-4, 1-1). Once on the grid­iron, the In­di­ans will try to take ad­van­tage of their late-game pos­ses­sions af­ter they strug­gled to find the score­board in the fi­nal min­utes of their pre­vi­ous two con­tests.

The Tigers may have dropped their last game but they ap­pear to be flex­ing their mus­cles af­ter they fol­lowed up a win over Bo Manor by nearly knock­ing off reign­ing Susque­hanna Di­vi­sion champion Elk­ton a week ago.

North East will have its hands full tonight as it at- tempts to stop the du­elthreat of­fense of the Tigers, who boast All-County quar­ter­back Nate McCul­lough and a phys­i­cal rush­ing at­tack. Mean­while on de­fense, the hosts will look to cap­i­tal­ize one week af­ter it forced a pair of turnovers, in­clud­ing a fum­ble re­cov­ery re­turned for a touch­down.

Elk­ton at Har­ford Tech When: 7 tonight Last Meet­ing: Oct. 2015 – Elk­ton won, 38-12

Out­look: The Golden Elks’ 12-game win streak against Susque­hanna Di­vi­sion op­po­nents will be on the line tonight when they travel out of the county to 9, take on Har­ford Tech.

Led by their stand­out run­ning back Raiquon Estep (three rush­ing touch­downs a week ago), ex­pect Elk­ton to take con­trol of the game early with a suf­fo­cat­ing rush­ing at­tack and a dom­i­nat­ing de­fen­sive ef­fort.

Fol­low­ing the last Elks’ road trip, coach Matt Feeney spoke of his de­sire to see his team fin­ish strong af­ter it broke out to a 28-0 lead over host Jop­pa­towne, only to win 35-14.

An­tic­i­pate Elk­ton keep­ing the pedal to the floor as it looks to break away in the race for the lower di­vi­sion race for a se­cond con­sec­u­tive year.

Vanessa Dunn scored four goals and added an as­sist and Ju­lia Mat­sen found the back of the cage twice, while Erin DePaul (three as­sists) and Mad­die Rzu­cidlo both scored once for the Golden Elks (8-0 over­all, 5-0 Susque­hanna), who re­ceived two as­sists from Ni­cole Baldino, one helper from Ke­mu­nto Okindo and two saves from Fallon Katz.

The Mariners fall to 3-7 over­all and 1-5 in the lower di­vi­sion.

Thurs­day

UCBAC Girls’ Soc­cer Bo­hemia Manor 2, Elk­ton 1

Erin Horsey and Hannah Clarke both scored and Katie O’Hare dished out two as­sists for the Ea­gles (5-2-1 over­all, 2-0-1 Susque­hanna).

The Golden Elks fall to 2-4-1 over­all and 2-1 in the lower di­vi­sion.

Tues­day

North East 3, Havre de Grace 2

The In­di­ans won by set scores of 25-21, 26-24, 1825, 17-25 and 20-18.
