Football matchups

Williamsport (4-5) at Francis Scott Key (3-6)

When: Tonight, 7: 30

Outlook: A 4-6 finish wouldn't look bad for the Eagles after their 1-5 start this season. In last week's 20-6 win over Brunswick, the Eagles got a big night from senior QB Brad Stonesifer, who threw for 183 yards, finding TE Kevin DeCarlo (four catches for 63 yards) and WR Jesse Brossoit (three grabs for 70 yards) for scores. Senior RB Jason Zinkand added 100 yards on the ground to run his total to 833 with seven touchdowns. The Wildcats are coming off a win against Monocacy Valley Athletic League rival Catoctin.

North Carroll (6-3) at Liberty (4-5)

When: Tonight, 7: 30

Outlook: The county title is up for grabs, with both teams coming into tonight's season finale undefeated against other Carroll foes. Last year, the Lions closed out an 8-2 season with a win over North Carroll to capture the county title. This year, the Panthers (3-0 in county play) have been the big surprise. Both teams have been effective running a wing-T offense. The Lions (2-0 in the county) have piled up 2,690 yards of total offense behind the running of Josh Denning (814 yards, 12 touchdowns). The Panthers went to the air in last week's 20-14 win over Bethesda-Chevy Chase as senior QB John Etzel threw two touchdown passes to junior RB Rick Brown and another to senior WR Chad Crowl.

South Carroll (2-7) at Westminster (4-5)

When: Tonight, 7: 30

Outlook: With their 29-27 win over Frederick last Friday, the Cavaliers finally won one of those games that could have gone either way. The Owls, coming off a 42-19 loss to Linganore, are playing for a .500 season tonight. Throw away the records and expect a good football game when these two teams meet. The Cavaliers got a fourth-quarter touchdown by senior RB Daren Snyder to come back from a rough start. Snyder had 140 yards rushing. Junior QB Lee Windsor completed six of eight passes for 120 yards and a 50-yard score to senior WR Shaun O'Neill to start the Cavs comeback. Turnovers and penalties continued to haunt the Owls in their loss to Linganore, putting a damper on a great night from senior FB Brian Tozer, who rushed for 140 yards and two scores.
