Local rivals Dundalk and Patapsco can both safely call themselves undefeated after winning both of their third games this weekend.
Dundalk ended Perry Hall’s two-game winning streak on Friday, beating the team in a 14-7 game at Dundalk High that was attended by the Ravens’ Marlon Humphrey.
“I think we did what we were supposed to do, we’re happy, but I think we’re taking care of business,” Owls head coach Matt Banta said. He said the team isn’t focused on being undefeated, but is taking each game strategically.
The Dundalk Owls will next face off against the other Owls, Westminster High, this Friday at 6 p.m.
Patapsco beat Pikesville on Saturday in a 19-12 game, and will go against Loch Raven in an away game on Friday at 6 p.m. as well.
The two teams won’t see each other until the final game of the regular season, when Dundalk plays an away game at Patapsco on Oct. 29.
The two teams’ winning streaks don’t discount the Pointers’ win against Eastern Tech on Friday.
The Pointers won 21-0 against the Essex school, and will see Pikesville on Friday. They will be seeing Patapsco soon, too, facing off on Oct. 8.
The Pointers’ field hockey team lost to Dulaney 4-0 on Monday, having previously won against Eastern Tech, 5-1.
Patapsco’s team also lost on Tuesday, falling to Carver A&T who won 3-0.
Tuesday night was a big night for the area’s three boys’ soccer teams, with Sparrows Point beating Lansdowne (5-0), Dundalk losing to Catonsville (3-1) and Patapsco losing to Perry Hall (10-1).
A rivalry is about to play out tonight, when Patapsco and Dundalk’s boys’ and girls’ teams play against each other. The boys’ game will start today at 4 p.m. at Patapsco, and the girls will play at 5:15 p.m. at Dundalk.
Dundalk beat Patapsco’s volleyball team 3-2 on Friday, but Patapsco will return for more on Oct. 6, when the Patriots play the Owls again at Dundalk.
Things could be going better for the Owls’ mixed Badminton team, which lost to Sparrows Point last Monday 7-0, and to Parkville on Friday, 7-3.
The Patriots’ badminton team also lost to Eastern Tech on Friday, with the Mavericks winning 11-0.
At press time on Wednesday, the so-far undefeated Pointers were scheduled to take on Eastern Technical High School.
