Weekend Blitz and Top 10: Will Week 2 bring more or fewer surprises?

0

Edward Little (1-0) at Oxford Hills (1-0)

Friday, 7 p.m.

Red Eddies have owned the series this decade, winning seven of eight since 2010.

Lewiston (0-1) at Thornton Academy (1-0)

Friday, 7 p.m.

Maybe not the best time for a crossover game with an A South powerhouse, but the Blue Devils’ immediate focus is on getting better, regardless of opponent.

Mt. Blue (1-0) at Greely (0-1)

Friday, 7 p.m.

Week 1 is always full of surprises, but probably no score raised more eyebrows than the Cougars’ 34-13 dismantling of Lawrence.

Leavitt (1-0) at Yarmouth (0-1)

Friday, 7 p.m.

Hornets showcased size in 28-0 win over MCI last week. Their speed may emerge on the Clippers’ turf field this week.

Gray-New Gloucester (0-1) at Dirigo (1-0)

Friday, 7 p.m.

Last week’s one-point win over Class C Old Town showed even though they are in Class E, the Cougars are not to be taken lightly. 

Spruce Mountain (1-0) at Lake Region (0-1)

Friday, 7 p.m.

If offense, defense and special teams can consistently contribute the way they all did last week, the Phoenix will be a force in D South.

Oak Hill (1-0) at Winthrop/Monmouth/Hall-Dale (0-1)

Friday, 7 p.m.

A quick look at the rest of September’s schedule suggests this is a critical game for both teams.

Freeport (1-0) at Poland (0-1)

Friday, 7 p.m.

Knights can build some confidence and momentum at home over the next couple of weeks, but like Dirigo, the Class E Falcons aren’t to be overlooked.

Mountain Valley (1-0) at Lisbon (1-0)

Saturday, 1:30 p.m.

Last year’s first regular-season meeting of the two storied programs was a classic. Greyhounds won 22-20 in a game that turned on a fake punt.

Telstar (0-1) at Camden Hills (1-0)

Saturday, 1:30 p.m.

Rebels will be focused on Windjammers’ senior Ethan Cayouette, who scored all four touchdowns (three rushing, one punt return) in 30-0 win over Sacopee Valley.

Sun Journal Top 10

1. Scarborough

Letting Jarrett Flaker loose in the open field is unfair.

2. Thornton Academy

Golden Trojans’ first trip to Fitzpatrick Stadium was a success (70-0 over Deering in Week 1). Do they have another trip in them?

3. Bonny Eagle

Scots’ defense did the heavy lifting as the offense worked out the kinks in 34-6 win over South Portland.

4. Portland

Bulldogs earned sweet revenge for last year’s regional final by beating Windham, 49-0. 

5. Oxford Hills

Vikings dispatched one Twin City thorn in their side with 34-0 win over Lewiston. The other, Edward Little, is up next. 

6. Marshwood

Hawks may not be seriously challenged until October.

7. Kennebunk

Like Bonny Eagle, Rams’ defense covered up for some early miscues before the offense got rolling in 62-19 win over Skowhegan.

8. Brunswick

Dragons struck a blow for the North in 27-25 crossover win over Falmouth.

9. Cheverus

Stags made statement with 53-6 win over Massabesic, but a win over intra-city rival Portland on Friday would resonate a lot more.

10. Biddeford

Tigers step on Waterhouse Field’s turf for first time with a second, and tougher, of back-to-back crossover games, against Cony.
