Northeast running back Jeff Jones
Jones played a large role in getting the Eagles their second win on Friday, rushing 14 times for 178 yards, three touchdowns and a two-point conversion in Northeast's 26-8 romp over Southern. The touchdowns, all in the first quarter, came on runs of 10, 7 and 66 yards, getting the Eagles off to a 20-0 lead. Jones also contributed on defense, nabbing an interception and batting down one pass. "Since we hit rock bottom, we've won two in a row," said Northeast Coach Mike Cotham. "It couldn't have gotten much worse than how we did against Arundel" in a 39-0 loss on Oct. 10. Tomorrow, Northeast takes on Meade, also on a winning streak, so one team will come back to Earth.
Arundel quarterback Kyle Sumpter
Sumpter was the Washington area's second-leading passer on Friday night, completing 12 of 17 throws for 256 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions as Arundel cruised to a 31-16 win over Glen Burnie. Sumpter connected with Brandon Johnson-Farrell for a 68-yard score and with Brandon Lemon for a 53-yard touchdown. Sumpter also rushed nine times for 153 yards, scoring once on a 35-yard run in the first quarter. Arundel had a season high 540 yards on the night -- 237 rushing and 303 passing -- and Sumpter accounted for 409, or 76 percent, of those yards. He has 956 yards passing through seven games this season. Lemon also had a good day receiving, catching five balls for 112 yards and a touchdown.
Glen Burnie quarterback Tim Dash
The game against Arundel actually featured two strong quarterback performances. Dash threw for 229 yards, two touchdowns and one interception on 11 of 25 passing, good enough to rank third on the Washington area passing list on Friday. Dash connected with Justin Murdock and Korey Nicholson for 73- and 37-yard touchdown passes, respectively, both coming in the fourth quarter. Dash also tossed a two-point conversion. Glen Burnie has yet to win a game this season and has a losing streak dating from Oct. 10, 2003.

Old Mill (6-1, 6-1) at Annapolis (5-2, 5-1), 7:15 p.m. Friday
They haven't met since 2002, when Old Mill running back Brashaad Mayweather scored on an eight-yard touchdown run in overtime to give the Patriots their third straight win over the Panthers. Old Mill's Kevin Barnes returned an interception 102 yards for a score. This season, Annapolis is coming off a 16-0 loss to Severna Park, while Old Mill beat South River last week, 20-13, with the Patriots engineering a 70-yard drive in the closing minutes to seal the win. Annapolis running back Damien Kinchen will compete for stats with Old Mill back Ryan Callahan, who broke 1,000 yards for the season last week after he carried the ball 24 times for 167 yards and three touchdowns. Kinchen rushed 19 times for 94 yards last week. Steve Holmes also had a good week for the Patriots, catching eight balls for 135 yards.
