Heading into another weekend of big games, Gilman (Md.) and Stony Point (Texas) both faced questions about early-season scheduling for very different reasons. While concerns persisted that Gilman's three tough games would leave them too depleted to compete against DeMatha (Maryland's top-ranked team), some worried that Stony Point's early season slate, which featured two Mexican opponents, left them vulnerable against a battle-tested DeSoto team on the road.
By Saturday, Gilman and Stony Point had emphatically answered their critics and set the stage for more minor jumbling of the RivalsHigh 100 in the process.
• No. 91 Gilman (Md.) 35, No. 38 DeMatha (Md.) 10
Gilman quarterback Darius Jennings was almost unstoppable, leading the Greyhounds to a suprisingly one-sided upset with 270 yards and two touchdowns.
