Outlook: This is a critical match in the Baltimore City Division I race. Patterson handed Edmondson its first loss in league play, 16-8, last Friday in a sloppy contest on Kane Avenue.


After a scoreless first half that featured eight turnovers between the two teams, 14th-ranked Patterson got a 13-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Overton to Marcus Woodard. Overton, a senior quarterback, threw a 40-yard strike to Myrek Lee-Fowkles.

Dunbar’s defense got the best of City’s offense in a 14-6 victory at Poly’s Lumsden-Scott Stadium last Friday. The No. 16 Knights managed only 89 yards and a Steffin Wilkins’ one-yard touchdown run in the opening quarter. City was averaging 35 points in its previous four contests.

The Knights received another outstanding defensive performance with Diamante Fox recovering a fumble and interceptions by Da’Quan Smith and Charles Tapper. City is allowing a league-best 5.6 points a game.

Last season, Patterson defeated City, 28-22, at home. The Clippers have won nine of their 10 regular season games, dating back to last year.
