No. 8 Howard (5-1) at Mount Hebron (0-6)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: Lions coach John Quinn was pleased with his team's first shutout of the season, a 20-0 victory over Wilde Lake last week. Wilde Lake was held to 95 yards rushing and 55 yards passing. Howard QB DaLawn Parrish continues to do what he does best -- create big plays on crucial downs. Parrish threw touchdown passes of 23, 39 and 27 yards. RB Corey Curtis gained 72 yards on 17 carries and has 587 yards rushing. Mount Hebron continues to struggle, losing to Atholton, 38-0, last week. The Vikings made five turnovers. Among the bright spots for the Vikings were: Jeremy DeSor, eight solo tackles and six assists; Mike Machiron, four solo tackles and 10 assists; Scott Kelly, two interceptions; Mike McDaniel, three catches for 39 yards. Howard defeated Mount Hebron, 46-0, last season.

Oakland Mills (4-2) at Hammond (3-3)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: Oakland Mills clobbered Glenelg last week, 41-13, on touchdown runs of 24, 55, 27, 45 and 52 yards. The Scorpions simply had too much speed for the Glenelg secondary. Jake Daft yards, 10 touchdowns) rushed 16 times for 152 yards and three touchdowns. He could break the 1,000-yard mark this week. Paul Brown rushed three times for 87 yards and two touchdowns. Tajuan Hall rushed three times for 77 yards and one touchdown. QB Irving Conwell completed six of 12 passes for 76 yards. He's 41 of 74 for 620 yards. Oakland Mills had 354 yards rushing. The Scorpions' defense came up with four sacks and two interceptions. Hammond lost its second straight game, dropping a 22-13 decision to Centennial. The Bears couldn't stop Robbie Hauff (243 yards rushing, three TDs) and for the second straight week showed poor defense against the run. The return from an injury of 280-pound defensive tackle Joe Cullen should help. QB Tim Spruill (11-for-30, 95 yards) threw one touchdown pass. Spruill has completed 54 of 133 for 729 yards and six touchdowns. Josh Zilmer, back in the lineup after missing a game with a shoulder injury, ran 43

yards for a touchdown. Hammond defeated Oakland Mills, 14-6, last season. This is Hammond's homecoming and would be coach Joe Russo's 100th career victory.

Glenelg (2-4) at Centennial (5-1)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: Centennial has its best team since 1980 when it went 9-1 and won its only county championship. The Eagles slipped by pesky Hammond last week, 22-13, as RB Robbie Hauff broke the 1,000-yard mark with 243 yards on 34 carries. Hauff, who leads the Baltimore area in rushing and scoring (118 points), has 1,094 yards on 142 carries. He has 19 touchdowns, 16 rushing. This week Hauff should break the school record for rushing in a single season held by Don Culbreth (1,098 yards). QB Brian Dowell is 33-for-67 for 547 yards and five touchdowns. Centennial's pass defense faces QB Sean Lookingbill, the county's best passer who has completed 73 of 144 for 737 yards and three touchdowns. Brian Frederick, his favorite target, has caught 20 passes for 281 yards and one touchdown. Steve Dulaney has 14 catches for 183 yards. Last season Glenelg defeated Centennial, 27-21.

Wilde Lake (2-4) at Atholton (4-2)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: Despite a 20-0 loss to Howard last week, Wilde Lake continues to improve and has a bunch of talented sophomores. Wilde Lake's defense is hard-nosed and pursues well but needs to eliminate youthful mistakes. The offensive line is creating good holes and sophomore QB Tony Jackson gains confidence with each game. Atholton broke a two-game losing streak by defeating Mount Hebron last week, 38-0. Ricky Trott is the leading rusher with 571 yards on 94 carries. QB Jamie Burford has completed 34 of 82 passes for 540 yards. Last week Trott rushed seven times for 76 yards and two touchdowns, and Burford was 6-for-14 for 83 yards and two touchdowns. WR Greg McDonald caught one touchdown pass, played quarterback the second half and scored on an option run. J. R. Merrill made seven tackles, recovered a fumble and made an interception. Wilde Lake defeated Atholton, 49-6, last season.
