When: Friday, 7:00 p.m.
Outlook: In a rematch of last year’s MIAA B Conference title game; Boys’ Latin and Spalding are both coming off of losses a week ago. The Lakers holds a one game lead over the defending champions in the league standings.
Brandon Barnes scored on a two-yard run and Taylor Stothoff drove in a 20-yard field goal to give the Boys’ Latin a 10-6 halftime lead when it traveled to Virginia to face St. Anne’s Belfield but BL was undone by five turnovers.
The Cavaliers were shocked last week by unranked Archbishop Curley in a 17-7 upset. Spalding turned the ball over four times in the loss. Julian Washington grabbed a 40-yard touchdown pass from Donnie Abel in the fourth quarter but it was too little too late by then.
K.K. Smith and J.D. Izon, two of the Cavaliers’ top playmakers, will have to make an impact if Spalding wants to remain in the B Conference race.
Boys’ Latin bested Spalding, 20-0, in the regular season last year before losing three weeks later in the B Conference title game, 12-0. Both teams had issues with turnovers a week ago and will have to do a better job hanging on to the football.
