Ce­cil County Foot­ball Cap­sules

North East at Elk­ton When: 7 p.m tonight Last Meet­ing: Nov. 6, 2015 – Elk­ton won, 39-0

Out­look: While it’s al­ready clinched a play­off spot, the Elk­ton foot­ball team en­ters its sea­son fi­nale against North East un­sure who and where it will play next week.

Cur­rently the third seed in the 2A East Re­gion, the Golden Elks (8-1 over­all, 6-0 Susque­hanna) have a chance to ei­ther move into the se­cond seed and host an open­ing-round con­test, stay put or drop to the fourth seed de­pend­ing on how the other pro­jected play­off teams fare.

Re­gard­less, Elk­ton will likely need a win to re­main in con­tention for a higher seed. With post­sea­son play a week away, ex­pect all busi­ness from the Elks, who will at­tack this game head on as they pre­pare for the play­offs.

De­spite play­ing well against Bo Manor last week, the In­di­ans of­fense strug­gled to fin­ish drives. Against Elk­ton, of­fense could be even more hard to come by, as North East (0-9, 0-6) goes up against the top-ranked de­fense in the divi­sion.

While the score may be one-sided, an­tic­i­pate a well-fought game, es­pe­cially early, as North East at- tempts to build mo­men­tum head­ing into next year.

Jop­pa­towne at Bo­hemia Manor When: 7 tonight Last Meet­ing: Nov. 4, 2015 – Bo Manor won, 26-0

Out­look: With a play­off spot locked up in the 1A East Re­gion, Bo Manor will take the field tonight hop­ing to clinch home field. A win will guar­an­tee them the No. 2 seed and an open­ing round home game, while a loss by cur­rent top seed Cam­bridge-SD could re­sult in the vic­to­ri­ous Ea­gles mov­ing in the No. 1 spot.

While their records may dif­fer, Bo Manor (6-3 over­all, 4-2 Susque­hanna) faces a tough task against vis­it­ing Jop­pa­towne (3-6, 3-3). The Mariners are cur­rently the fourth seed in the 1A North Re­gion play­off race, and are cur­rently on track to play Havre de Grace in the open­ing round of the post­sea­son. While a loss could still lead to the Har­ford County school mak­ing the play­offs, a win will guar­an­tee them a spot.

Ex­pect the Ea­gles to come out swing­ing, us­ing their down-hill run­ning game and ath­letic de­fense to put away the op­po­si­tion early. Mo­men­tum can go a long way in the play­offs and Bo Manor will en­ter the se­cond sea­son on a mod­est two-game win­ning streak if it can pull out a vic­tory.
