Perryville at North East
When: 7 tonight
Last Meeting: Oct. 26, 2018 – Perryville won, 42-7
Outlook: The Panthers are coming off of their first loss of the season while the Indians seek to make it two wins in a row.
Perryville (3-1) did not get its offense going until the second half a week ago as it fell to Rising Sun, 35-21. Senior quarterback Tyler Nasuta came alive after halftime, throwing for two touchdowns and rushing for another to twice pull the Panthers within a score.
Senior running back Jachai Graham rushed for 227 yards and a pair of touchdowns to lead the Indians to a 28-8 win over Bohemia Manor last Friday. North East (2-2) bounced back from a disappointing showing against Joppatowne a week earlier.
Perryville defeated the Mariners 28-14 in Week 2, so expect the Panthers to find a way to bounce back tonight.
Rising Sun at Fallston
When: 7 tonight
Last Met: Sept. 7, 2018 — Rising Sun won, 41-0
Outlook: The Tigers dominated the Cougars in an early-season contest a year ago. There’s little reason to suspect tonight’s game should be any different.
Rising Sun (3-1) bounced back from its first loss of the year with a 35-21 win over rival Perryville a week ago. Senior running back Ben Ehrhart returned after missing the previous two games with a wrist injury and ran for 247 yards and a pair of touchdowns against a normally impressive Panthers’ defense.
Having suffered a 35-20 loss to Perryville only two weeks ago, it seems highly unlikely Fallston (1-3) finds a way to upset the Tigers. Expect Rising Sun to improve to 4-1.
Bohemia Manor at Joppatowne
When: 6 tonight
Last Met: Sept. 28, 2018 — Bohemia Manor won, 20-0
Outlook: The Mariners, who once occupied the bottom spot in the Whig’s power poll, are one of the season’s surprise teams. Joppatowne (2-2) has won two straight games and has a strong chance for a third tonight against the winless Eagles (0-4).
The Mariners may be too talented for the Eagles to find their first win over the season tonight.
