Walter Johnson (3-0) at Paint Branch (2-1): WJ has taken big steps over the last 4 years and this is a great opportunity for the Wildcats to prove themselves and stake a claim for the top seed in the 4A North. Meanwhile PB will be looking for a statement win after falling short against Sherwood. Prediction: Paint Branch by 3
Blake (3-0) at Sherwood (3-0): Congratulations to the Bengals on starting 3-0 for the first time ever! It was a bit expected given the level of competition they’ve played so far, but also a testament to their growth under Coach Marshall. Sherwood will be a big step up for the Bengals, but this should be a good one – Blake tends to play the Warriors tough, and nearly pulled off the comeback upset last year, only to fall on a walk-off Hail Mary. However, Sherwood has exceeded expectations so far this year and based on their performances along with Blake’s not particularly impressive win over Einstein, think they show the Bengals that there’s still a ways to climb. Prediction Sherwood 28 by 11
Quince Orchard (3-0) at Churchill (3-0): After 9 years we’ll finally get former QO Coach Dave Mac vs. QO! As he returns to MoCo as the Bulldog Offensive Coordinator. Not all 3-0 records are created equal. No doubt every coach in the county is gonna be poring over the Stone Bridge tape to see if they can exploit any Cougar weaknesses, but most won’t have the horses to do it. Churchill will try with star running back David Avit. Prediction QO by 31
Watkins Mill (0-3) at Wheaton (1-2): And here’s a potentially competitive matchup. Watkins Mill is looking to win its first game since Week 9 of 2019. It has been a rough start for the ‘Rines who have yet to score a single point so far. But Wheaton is not too far above them and had a pretty close affair against Northwood. Prediction Watkins Mill by 2
