When: Friday, 3:45 p.m.
Outlook: A classic rivalry from the old Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference is renewed in this non-league Thursday special. No. 3 Calvert Hall has been overwhelming in its last two games (outscored opponent 83-0) including a 28-0 drubbing of then-No. 18 Mount St. Joseph in Irvington last Saturday.
Junior quarterback Thomas Stuart passed for 257 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for another. Trevor Williams caught one of Stuart’s throws (six yards) and returned a punt 55 yards for another touchdown.
Senior John Casparriello and junior Emmanuel Holder led the Cardinals’ defense with a quarterback sack each and junior Mark Rasmussen. The Cardinals’ defense, captained by UCONN-commit Adrian Amos and senior linemen Dan Yarborough, have allowed one touchdown-a late fourth quarter score by Dunbar (D.C.) Sept. 10-in its last three games.
No. 7 Poly rolled up a 22-0 halftime lead before holding on, 30-22, against then-No. 14 Patterson last Friday at Mervo’s Modell Field. Jamal Chappell’s three-yard touchdown run with 34.3 seconds remaining in regulation, and two-point pass from Darrell Milburn to Jordon Garrison was the difference for the Engineers. Milburn, a senior, threw for 123 yards and scoring passes to Donovan Riley (10 yards) and Garrison (14 yards).
