Whitman (0-1) at Walter Johnson (1-0) – The 2nd leg of The Congressional Cup for Walter Johnson is up next as they host Whitman. Look for Wildcat QB Charlie Blessing to have a breakout game.

Clarksburg (0-1) at Northwest (0-1) – The Coyotes visit The Black Hole. Northwest QB Nick Holloway should have a very productive game as the Jags look to get their first victory of the season.
Prediction: Northwest by 32
Gaithersburg (1-0) at Seneca Valley (1-0) – After several years, it looks like this classic MCPS rivalry has some fire back. Trojan RB Gideon Ituka will need to carry the load if Gaithersburg wants to upset the Screamin’ Eagles.
Prediction: Seneca Valley by 22
Damascus (1-0) at Magruder (0-1) – The Colonels defense played extremely well last week. They will need a similar effort if they wish to slow down Dillon Dunathan, Michael Cooley and the rest of the Swarmin’ Hornet run game.
Prediction: Damascus by 28
Blake (1-0) at Churchill (0-1) – Bengal QB Kirby Matson will need to replicate his performance from last week in order to take out the Bulldogs who are hungry for their first victory.
Prediction: Churchill by 7
Urbana (1-0) at Sherwood (1-0) – Warrior QB Amari Allen will need an outstanding game as the revitalized Hawks from Frederick County visit Olney. Look for Asa Virga Humza Azim to play key roles on the Sherwood defense.
Prediction: Urbana by 17
Einstein (0-1) at Blair (1-0) – The potent Blair offense got off to a slow start last week. The Blazers will need to hit the ground running as DCC rival Einstein visits.
Prediction: Blair by 6
Up County Game of the Week
Quince Orchard (1-0) at Paint Branch (1-0) – Two of the most consistent programs in the County lock up once again. Panther RB Mason Flowers will be key, as will Cougar RB Iverson Howard. Both squads boast stellar defenses.
