War­riors take the top spot

Cecil Whig - - SPORTS - By WHIG STAFF REPORT

There is plenty of move­ment in this week’s edi­tion of the UCBAC Football Power Poll, in­clud­ing a shakeup of the Top 5. Havre de Grace vaults into the top spot and Per­ryville moves into the Top 10 (record and last week’s rank­ings in paren­the­ses).

1. Havre de Grace (2-0, 3) — The War­riors have outscored their op­po­nents 77-0 over their first two games. They’ll get 2-0 Per­ryville on Fri­day.

2. Bel Air (1-1, 1) — A 30-point loss to non-con­fer­ence foe Flow­ers will drop the Bob­cats from atop the poll.

3. Elk­ton (2-0, 2) — With Fri­day’s win over North East, the Golden Elks have ex­tended their win­ning streak against con­fer­ence op­po­nents to 21 games.

4. C.M. Wright (2-0, 6) — Back to back blowout wins will vault the Mus­tangs into the Top 5.

5. Aberdeen (2-0, 7) — The Eagles qui­etly climb among this rank­ing’s elite fol­low­ing a pair of im­pres­sive non-con­fer­ence wins. They’ll tan­gle with Bo Manor next.

6. North Har­ford (2-0, 4) — The Hawks will fall af­ter nearly suf­fer­ing an up­set loss to Susque­hanna op­po­nent Pat­ter­son Mill.

7. Edge­wood (1-1, 5) — One week af­ter shut­ting out Parkville, the Rams were held off the score­board by non-con­fer­ence pow­er­house Linganore.

8. Fall­ston (2-0, 9) — The Cougars have a chance to start the sea­son 3-0 Fri­day when they host North East.

9. Per­ryville (2-0, 11) — Im­pres­sive start to the cam­paign for the Pan­thers, who erased a 13-0 deficit Fri­day to beat Largo. They’ll host un­de­feated Havre de Grace next in the Susque­hanna Bowl.

10. Har­ford Tech (2-0, 10) — A Week 3 bat­tle against No. 4 C.M. Wright will show us how much the Co­bras have grown.

11. Bo Manor (0-2, 8) — Next week doesn’t get any eas­ier for the 0-2 Eagles, who host No. 5 Aberdeen in their home opener.

12. Pat­ter­son Mill (0-2, 12) — The Huskies nearly up­set pre­vi­ously-ranked North Har­ford af­ter nar­rowly fall­ing to Fall­ston. That’s a good sign for a pro­gram that won only three games a year ago.

13. Ris­ing Sun (0-2, 13) — What a bru­tal three­game stretch to open the sea­son for the Tigers. They lost their first two games against C.M. Wright and Fall­ston and host No. 3 Elk­ton on Fri­day.

14. North East (0-2, 15) — Im­pres­sive show­ing for the In­di­ans, who trailed reign­ing 2A state fi­nal­ist Elk­ton by just 12 points in the fourth quar­ter.

15. Jop­pa­towne (0-2, 14) — The Mariners will sink to the bot­tom of the rank­ings af­ter be­ing shut out by Havre de Grace.
