Weekend Blitz: Big showdowns in 8-man football

·1 min read

Sep. 15—The Red Eddies return to Maine, where they are unbeaten this season. The Witches already have been on both sides of blowouts.

Possible offensive shootout. The Patriots have scored 26 and 40 points this year, while the Clippers have 45- and 28-point games.

The Knights, who ran for more than 200 yards last week, face the surprising Crusaders and running back Logun McMahon.

The Phoenix made a long trip to Ellsworth worth their while last week, while the Shipbuilders have shown they can win high- and low-scoring games.

It's only Week 3, but this Falcons-Black Bears showdown could set the tone for the rest of the 8-Man Small South season.

The Rams haven't scored yet and have allowed 94 points in two games. The Cougars stumbled last week but put up 50 in the opener.

The lights will be on, and pride, as always, is on the line as these two rivals try to get off the schneid.

The Vikings showed their completeness by beating the defending champ, Thornton, last week without QB Eli Soehren.

Ah, the classic six-school showdown. The Ramblers are battle-tested, having had two encounters with crunch time already.

The Cougars bounced back from a Week 1 loss to Maranacook and are still contenders to return to the regional final.

The Rebels allowed 74 points in Week 1 then scored 76 in Week 2. They'll try to keep the latter going when they face the Hawks.

The Hornets dominated Class B Portland and now face the Class A Blue Devils, who returned three kicks for TDs against Bangor.
