Outlook: The unbeaten and sixth-ranked Hawks try to lock up the UCBAC Chesapeake Division crown, and clear their final hurdle towards a perfect regular season. North Harford gobbled Joppatowne’s defense for 373 rushing yards in a 36-16 decision last Thursday.

Senior running back Brandon Bayer led the way with 206 yards and three touchdowns, all in the first half. Ben Kenley added two second half touchdowns for North Harford (7-0 overall, 4-0 Chesapeake), which has won 10 straight in UCBAC play dating back to last season.

Havre de Grace (6-1, 4-0 Chesapeake) won its fourth straight, 27-14, over Bel Air last Thursday as junior quarterback Darin Washington threw for 141 yards and two touchdowns. Trailing 14-13 in the fourth quarter, Washington threw for a 23-yard scoring strike to Monty Werts, and scored on a one-yard sneak on fourth-and-goal.

The Warriors can boost their position (currently second) in the Class 1A East Region standings with a win Friday. North Harford sits second behind No. 10 Franklin in the 3A North Region.

Last season, North Harford overcame five fumbles (lost four) to knock off the Warriors, 27-14. Cody Turner returned an interception for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, and Bayer scored on a 15-yard run, to put the game out of reach.
