No. 4 City (4-0) at Forest Park (2-3)

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: City, Calvert Hall and Loyola have been tied for first-place in the MSA A Conference for 2 weeks. Forest Park is in sixth place at 2-2. A loss could drop the Foresters out of title contention. RB Rentate Sterrette has rushed for 572 yards and 4 TDs to lead the Foresters, who lost to Poly, 14-6, last week. City may have the conference's best offense. The Knights scored 20 points last week against a good Gilman defense. City QB Terrence Suber has passed for 598 yards and 6 TDs, but the offense is sparked by RBs Hari Lymon and Antonio Travers. The defense is the area's sixth best (7.0 ppg).

Southern-B (4-1) at No. 11 Patterson (4-1)

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: Both teams are 2-1 in the MSA B Conference, trailing Edmondson (4-0) and Northern (2-0), who also meet this week. Patterson suffered its first loss last week, to Edmondson, 8-6. Patterson's Buddy Edmond has passed for 711 yards and 4 TDs. RB William Rosenberger has 334 yards and 6 TDs. The Clippers rank among the area's top 20 in scoring (25.0 ppg) and scoring defense (8.6 ppg). Southern (11.6 ppg) ranks among the area leaders in defense. RB Chris Lewis has 655 yards and 7 TDs.

No. 17 Edmondson (4-0) at Northern (2-1)

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: Edmondson is involved for the third straight week in a showdown for first place in the MSA B Conference. The Redskins are 4-0 in the conference, and Northern is 2-0. Edmondson surprisingly ripped Northwestern, 36-8, two weeks ago; last week, the Redskins showcased their stingy defense in an 8-6 victory over Patterson. RB/CB Antwan Barmer is a key 2-way performer. He has rushed for 419 yards and 5 TDs. LB Clarence Holiday helps lead a defense that has allowed 39 points in 4 games. Northern's defense has allowed just 12 points in its 2 league games, led by S George Wilkerson and LB Pierre Foster. Option QB Darnell Stokes has passed for 1 TD and run for 1 TD.

No. 14 Gilman (3-2) at No. 15 Gibbons (3-2)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Cardinal Gibbons is in fourth place in the MSA A Conference with a 3-1 record, followed by Gilman at 3-2. Inexperienced Gilman has lost 2 straight; a third straight would likely knock the Greyhounds out of title contention. Gilman is sparked by its defense, led by LB Victor Carter-Bey and DL Samy Mir. Gibbons RB Eugene Marshall has rushed for more than 700 yards and 7 TDs.

No. 20 Perry Hall (4-2) at No. 12 South River (5-1)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Both teams have solid shots at winning their division titles. Baltimore County's Perry Hall has won 4 straight, and Anne Arundel County's South River 3 straight. QB Jake Cameron and RB Kevin Ferguson led South River's wishbone offense to 606 yards rushing in wins over Baltimore County's Randallstown (27-14) and Lansdowne (54-0). DL Bobby Schmaldienst, LB Trevor Perkins and CB Joe Messenese lead a defense that has registered 4 shutouts and allowed just 31 points. QB Dan Brown leads a Perry Hall team that ranks seventh in the area in scoring (28.0 ppg).

No. 10 Severna Park (4-2) at North County (4-2)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: The passing game should dominate, as the Falcons and the Knights meet for the first time in this key Anne Arundel County 4A game. Severna Park shares first place with Old Mill and Annapolis, all 4-1, and North County follows at 3-2. North County QB Eric Ross has thrown for 663 yards and 4 TDs. SE Damon Martin has 32 catches for 417 yards and 2 TDs. Severna Park QB Tim Bowerman has completed 15 of his past 19 passes for 298 yards and 6 TDs in 3 straight victories.

Arundel (3-3) at No. 8 Old Mill (5-1)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: The Patriots (4-1 league) hope to regroup after their 6-3 upset loss at Broadneck, but Arundel (3-2) has won 3 straight, including defeats of quality Glen Burnie and Annapolis teams. Arundel has balance with FB Matt Henson (357 yards rushing, 3 TDs) and QB George Epps (441 yards passing, 6 TDs). Old Mill has only 2 field goals in its past 8 quarters. RB Harold Peters (645 yards, 6 TDs) leads the offense; DL Billy Reese and DL Austin Johnson lead a defense that has allowed just 40 points in 6 games.

No. 13 Randallstown (4-2) vs. Woodlawn (4-2)

Site: Catonsville Community College

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: This is always a big Baltimore County game, but Woodlawn hasn't won it since 1983. Woodlawn started this season 4-0, but the Warriors have lost 2 straight, to Parkville (8-7) and Perry Hall (20-12). Last week, Randallstown bounced back from consecutive losses to Perry Hall (16-7) and South River (27-14) to hand Eastern Vo-Tech its first loss (28-8). RB Donte Boyd (775 yards, 7 TDs) and RB Haryn Singleton (467, 6) lead the Rams. LB Devalin Anderson leads a Woodlawn defense that ranks ninth in the area (8.2 ppg). RBs Omar Johnson and Bruce Brown spark the offense. Randallstown (3-1 in the league) is in third place in Baltimore County's 4A-3A Division, and Woodlawn (3-2) is in fourth.

Atholton (4-2) at Howard (5-1)

Time: 7:30 p.m.
