Boys' Latin (1-0) at No. 6 Gilman (1-0)

Time: 3: 30 p.m.

Outlook: Gilman (4-6 last year) stunned then-No. 5 City, 17-0, last weekend. Boys' Latin routed St. James, 45-0. Two years ago, Boys' Latin won this contest, 20-0, and Gilman (of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference) finished dismally (2-7). Last year, the Greyhounds won, 11-0, but still finished at 4-6, including a loss to McDonogh -- a team the Lakers beat. Boys' Latin finished 8-2 in the MIAA B.

No. 9 Hereford (1-0) at North Carroll (1-0)

Time: 7: 30 p.m.

Outlook: Following last week's 56-20 rout of Towson, Hereford goes after its 12th straight regular-season victory. North Carroll edged Francis Scott Key, 26-20, in overtime last week. Each team runs the wing-T and similar defenses. Hereford RBs Jason Wingeart (135 yards, two touchdowns) and Jason Murphy (110, one touchdown) had good openers. North Carroll had one of its most successful seasons (6-4 last year) under coach Bill Rumbaugh (fifth year) as RBs Adam Crowl and Rick Brown combined for 1,528 yards and 15 touchdowns. QB Eric Etzel is a returning starter in the most talented backfield Hereford has faced since a 38-14 loss to Milford Mill in 1995.

Forest Park (1-0) at City (0-1)

Time: 3: 30 p.m.

Outlook: After losing its opener, City faces a Foresters team that is coming off a 28-16 win over Mervo and looking to reverse last year's 32-0 loss. Gilman limited City's All-Metro WR Warren Smith to two receptions. Forest Park will need similar results, led by WR-LB Eugene Redfern.


Eastern Tech (1-0) at No. 13 Woodlawn (1-0)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Woodlawn coach Brian Scriven (30-13 career) shared last year's Class 3A-4A League crown with Perry Hall and Dulaney and defends it against coach Nick Arminio's Mavericks (7-3 last year). Coming off last week's 24-0 victory over Archbishop Spalding, Eastern Tech has one of the area's best receivers, Anthony Lawston (6-4, 210).

Gonzaga (1-1) at No. 4 Loyola (0-0)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Loyola tries to end Gonzaga's nine-game winning streak with 6-6, 280-pound second-team All-Metro L Blake Henry, QB Brant Hall (6-1, 190), NG Keon Burley (6-0, 195), LB Pat Brannan (6-0, 190) and RB Kyle Bell. Gonzaga, ranked No. 10 in the D.C. area by The Washington Post, has DL Drew Anderson (6-3, 248), DE-TE Mike Finnerty (6-3, 225), DT-OT Marcus Washington (6-3, 225), LB J.D. Schmidt (6-3, 220) and RB Pat Veith (6-0, 190). Gonzaga scored a 24-12 win over St. Joseph's (Pa.) last week. DB-QB-K Brian Gallagher was 5-for-10 for 144 yards and a touchdown, and LB Dave Dugan had two sacks and

a 65-yard interception return for a touchdown.
