Up to this point, both Unionville and Oxford have had disapointing seasons. After last weekend's 12-6 loss to Sun Valley, Unionville dropped to 3-7 (2-3 in Del-Val League American Conference games), while the Hornets' 13-6 loss to Interboro dropped them to 4-6 (1-4 in American Conference games). But a win in tomorrow night's game (7:30 p.m. at Oxford) will do something to salve the wounds of a losing season and give the winners something to build on for next year. Unionville won last year's contest, 32-3, and has won four of the last five meetings between the two teams.

Unionville coach Mike Duggan and Oxford's Dennis Baumgardner say they disregard season records when their teams meet. That may be a good idea for the Hornets, who have struggled all season and dropped to 2-3 in the Del-Val League's American Conference (3-5-1 overall) after last week's 14-13 loss to Academy Park. Unionville, meanwhile, is atop the American Conference with a 4-0 record (5-4 overall) after Friday's 23-0 win over Sun Valley. In Duggan's nine years at Unionville, the Indians have lost only once to Oxford - 14-0 in 1986.
