2018 Elite Six Rankings, Week 6

by MoCoFootball Staff on 10/02/18

2018 MOCOFB ELITE-SIX - WEEK SIX

RK TEAM PTS VOTES

1

DAMASCUS (13 1st place votes)

5-0. LW: #1, (with 12 1st place votes)

 

Damon: As expected the Swarmin Hornets have made it to the midpoint of the season with minimal challenge. Gunning for a state record 50 straight wins, I expect Damascus to ride high into the playoffs without a blemish.
JHB: Did what they're going to continue to do this season, and thrashed Poolesville. They do face a talented Clarksburg team that will be inspired by the rivalry game. Don't think it'll make much of a difference, but The Swarmin' Hornets still should be alert.
Lee: They still haven't lost and pitched a shutout against Poolesville.
Coach Owens: They don't need to score 60+ to prove anything.
Cohen: Another easy matchup for Damascus, another big win. In Week 5, Damascus shut out Poolesville 47-0. TD Ayo-Durojaiye continues to run through Montgomery County. The win streak continues to march towards the all time record.

LW: 97

2

QUINCE ORCHARD (4 1st place vote)

4-1. LW: #2, (with 5 1st place vote)

 

Damon: Despite this being a "rebuilding year" and a one score loss to IAC power Bullis, the Cougars have looked fantastic, especially on defense. Quince Orchard gets their 1st real public school test when they travel to Paint Branch.
Lee: It's hard to score 69 points and pitch a shutout. QO is beginning to click on all cylinders
JHB: In what will most certainly be the game of the week this week, the Cougars travel to Paint Branch it what will be a telling of who's really who in the county. This game on paper is going to be a heavyweight fight, but I've seen the Cougars dismantle teams before that looked like contenders.
Coach Owens: There is no way QO should be playing Kennedy (not their fault).
Cohen: The Cougars got right back on track after losing to Bullis, beating Kennedy 69-0. Marquez Cooper led the way for the Cougars offense, rolling over the Falcons. QO has a huge showdown against Paint Branch this week.

86

LW: 83

PAINT BRANCH

5-0. LW: #4

 

Lee: It's hard to score 66 points and pitch a shutout. QO vs PB on October 5 will be must watch football.
Damon: The Panthers have looked unstoppable this season giving up a measly 14 points overall. Paint Branch looks to show they are for real as the Cougars of QO come calling this week.
JHB: 4/5 Shut Outs is highly impressive, but this week is not going to be one as they are hosting Quince Orchard. It's put up or shut up time for the Panthers.
Coach Owens: Just rolling into their biggest game this year vs QO. The smarter team wins this Friday, not sure who that is yet.
Cohen: After allowing 14 points against Blair, the shutout streak is back for the Panthers. Paint Branch blew out Springbrook 66-0. In Week 6, for the first time this season, Paint Branch will get a true test. The Panthers will face QO at home in a massive matchup for both teams.

62

LW: 55

4

NORTHWEST

4-1. LW: #3

 

Lee: Northwest got steamrolled (something that isn't normally said). They were completely outmatched by WCAC's Good Counsel in the most recent Public vs Private matchup.
JHB: DEVASTATING LOSS to the Falcons of Good Counsel, but there's no time to rest or worry, because another Contender/Pretender match up is coming up as Northwest travels to Dog House of Churchill. This will also be a telltale sign of where Northwest stands after losing and how they bounce back.
Damon: No shame in taking a loss to nationally ranked Good Counsel. Besides the 4-1 Jaguars have no time to dwell, as undefeated Churchill waits in the wings.
Coach Owens: don't blame them for losing to a WCAC school like they did. That conference has 4 of the top 100 teams in the country. The Jags will get back on track this week.
Cohen: Northwest was completely outclassed by Good Counsel, but that was expected. Good Counsel is ranked in the top 25 in the country by USA Today. Northwest will have another big game coming up this week, as they'll travel to face upstart Churchill. This will be a huge game for the playoff standings.

LW: 71

5

JAMES H. BLAKE

4-1. LW: #5

 

Damon: The Bengals keep on taking care of business behind a stingy defense.
JHB: Easily thwarted what is probably going to go down as the worst Sencea Team of all time. They are tearing through their season post Week 1, and I don't foresee Northwood changing that this week.
Lee: Blake just keeps hanging around and should be a problem in the playoffs.
Coach Owens: things are setting up nicely for the Blake/Churchill game in 2 weeks. Blake is getting better every week, and they will need to!
Cohen: Blake cruised past Seneca Valley, winning 32-3. Blake has allowed the fewest points per game in Montgomery County behind Paint Branch this season. Max Tempchin leads a dominant Bengals defense. Blake should cruise again against Northwood this week.

LW: 29

6

WINSTON CHURCHILL

5-0. LW: #6

 

Lee: Churchill is for real. They are a team. Also the third team in the elite 6 to put 60+ up this week.
Damon: The surprise team at the midway point of the season. The Bulldogs high scoring offense will be put to the test as the host Northwest this Friday.
JHB: This team has the capability of truly standing out this week as they host the Jaguars this week. Momentum is on their side for certain and if Northwest doesn't play inspired to rebound, Churchill could easily see themselves move up the ranks of the Elite 6.
Coach Owens: so hard to keep them at 6, but I just can't jump them ahead of anyone yet for beating BCC. The RM win looks even better now.
Cohen: Churchill has golden opportunity to show if its undefeated start is for real. Churchill is the only undefeated team left in Montgomery County outside of Damascus. Though the Bulldogs haven't played an opponent of Northwest's caliber yet. Churchill is one of only three teams to score more than 200 total points this season, but this week will show how well Churchill stacks up against the County's elite.
