Cecil Whig - - SPORTS -

A fourth-straight win cou­pled with a loss by Aberdeen re­sults in Elk­ton tak­ing over the No. 2 spot in this week’s edi­tion of the UCBAC Foot­ball Power Poll. Fall­ston re­turns to the Top 5 fol­low­ing its stun­ning win over Aberdeen (record and last week’s rank­ings in paren­the­ses).

1. Bel Air (6-0, 1) — The Bob­cats cel­e­brated their bi­cen­ten­nial by up­end­ing C.M. Wright and re­main­ing firmly en­trenched atop this power poll.

2. Elk­ton (5-1, 3) — Five first-half touch­downs by do-it-all run­ning back Raiquon Estep helped spur the Golden Elks to a fourth­straight win and a jump in the rank­ings.

3. Fall­ston (3-3, 7) — Just one week af­ter they dropped out of the Top 5, the Cougars tri­umphed over pre­vi­ously sec­ond-ranked Aberdeen to re­turn to their place among the elite.

4. Aberdeen (3-3, 2) — The Ea­gles are in dan­ger of los­ing two in a row with top-ranked Bel Air loom­ing next on the sched­ule.

5. Havre de Grace (5-1, 5) — The War­riors cel­e­brated home­com­ing in a big way Fri­day, as quar­ter­back Mike Flosser threw for three scores and rushed for an­other in a lop­sided win over ri­val North Har­ford.

6. C.M. Wright (3-3, 6) — Satur­day wasn’t an easy game for the Mus­tangs, who had the un­for­tu­nate priv­i­lege of fac­ing top-ranked Bel Air dur­ing its 200th An­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion.

7. North Har­ford (4-2, 4) — The Hawks will look to fin­ish ahead on the score­board next week af­ter see­ing their four-game win­ning streak come to an end Fri­day against Havre de Grace.

8. Edge­wood (3-3, 8) — Af­ter three con­sec­u­tive vic­to­ries to open the sea­son, the Rams have dropped their first three Ch­e­sa­peake Di­vi­sion games.

9. Ris­ing Sun (2-4, 9) — The Tigers erased a 14-point hole at half­time by scor­ing 28 unan­swered points in Fri­day’s win over ri­val North East

10. Bo Manor (4-2, 11) — Fri­day was a state­ment vic­tory for the Ea­gles, who marched one game closer to a home play­off game fol­low­ing a win over re­gion ri­val Per­ryville.

11. Per­ryville (2-4, 10) — The Pan­thers drove the ball into the red zone on their fi­nal drive of the game but couldn’t find the end zone in a heart­break­ing 19-14 loss to ri­val Bo­hemia Manor.

12. Jop­pa­towne (2-4, 13) — There’s not much to write home about af­ter a 12-6 win over Pat­ter­son Mill, but the Mariners will move up a spot with Har­ford Tech suf­fer­ing a third-straight loss.

13. Har­ford Tech (2-4, 12) — The Co­bras have dropped three-straight games against Ce­cil County op­po­nents to open Susque­hanna Di­vi­sion play. It could be four in a row as they play North East next.

14. Pat­ter­son Mill (1-5, 14) — The next three games for the Huskies will come against Ce­cil County teams.

15. North East (0-6, 15) — The Indians stunned Ris­ing Sun early by twice go­ing up by 14 points in the first half, but they couldn’t hold on en route to a 19th-straight loss.
