War­riors move into No. 2 spot

Cecil Whig - - SPORTS - WHIG STAFF RE­PORT

Havre de Grace moves into the No. 2 spot re­cently va­cated by nowranked fifth Bel Air in this week’s edi­tion of the UCBAC Foot­ball Power Poll. Both teams will meet Fri­day in a sea­son- fi­nale show­down for the Ch­e­sa­peake Di­vi­sion crown ( record and last week’s rank­ings in paren­the­ses).

1. Elk­ton ( 8- 1, 1) — The Golden Elks be­came the first team since Per­ryville from 2011- 12 to cap­ture back- to- back Susque­hanna Di­vi­sion ti­tles.

2. Havre de Grace (7-1, 3) — A win next week will give the War­riors more reg­u­lar- sea­son on- field vic­to­ries than last year, when they ad­vanced to the 1A State ti­tle game.

3. Aberdeen ( 5- 4, 5) — The Ea­gles haven’t won back- to- back games since mid-Septem­ber when they beat Havre de Grace and Edge­wood.

4. Edge­wood ( 5- 4, 7) — A win on Fri­day against C. M. Wright will give the Rams, who just beat Bel Air, three- straight vic­to­ries to close out the sea­son.

5. Bel Air (7-2, 2) — A tough test against Havre de Grace awaits the Bob­cats in the fi­nal week­end of the sea­son as they at­tempt to avoid losses in three of their fi­nal four games.

6. North Har­ford ( 6- 3, 6) — The Hawks have a chance to end the year in the Top 5 if they can pull out a vic­tory against No. 3 Aberdeen in the sea­son’s fi­nale.

7. C.M. Wright ( 4- 5, 4) — A week was all the Mus­tangs spent among the elite. Af­ter beat­ing Aberdeen to vault into the Top 5, they drop back out fol­low­ing a loss to un­ranked North Har­ford.

8. Bo Manor ( 6- 3, 9) — Ho-hum, an­other post­sea­son ap­pear­ance for the Ea­gles, who make it to the dance for a fifth- straight year fol­low­ing Fri­day’s win over North East.

9. Fall­ston ( 3- 6, 8) — The Cougars have lost five of six.

10. Perr yville ( 4- 5, 10) — The Pan­thers have a play­off berth within their sights but will need to beat ri­val Ris­ing Sun in the sea­son fi­nale to punch their ticket to the dance.

11. Har­ford Tech ( 54, 11) — A vic­tory over Pat­ter­son Mill in Week 10 will de­liver the Co­bras a win­ning sea­son.

12. Jop­pa­towne ( 3- 6, 12) — Reel­ing from their loss to Per­ryville, the Mariners will play Bo Manor to end the year as they at­tempt to avoid los­ing back- to- back games against a pair of 1A East Re­gion play­off con­tenders.

13. Pat­ter­son Mill (2-7, 13) — The Huskies’ only two wins this sea­son came against Ce­cil County pro­grams (North East and Ris­ing Sun).

14. Ris­ing Sun ( 2- 7, 14) — A lost sea­son could end on a high note if the Tigers can beat county ri­val Per­ryville in the sea­son fi­nale and keep it out of the play­offs.

15. North East (0-9, 15) — While a sec­ond-straight win­less sea­son is likely (they play 8-1 Elk­ton in the sea­son fi­nale), the In­di­ans have rou­tinely show­cased this fall that their pro­gram is steadily mov­ing in the right di­rec­tion.
