City (4-3)

at No. 13 Lake Clifton (5-2)

When: Today, 3: 30

Outlook: Lake Clifton, 2-2 in the City East Division, has lost twice in a row and must win to retain its chances of reaching the Class 4A state playoffs after being state semifinalists last season. A loss to Patterson last week may have ended City's hopes for a 3A playoff berth, but a victory by the Knights (3-1 league) -- who still must play league-leader Poly -- would keep them contenting for a division title.

No. 11 Eastern Tech (6-1)

at Perry Hall (5-2)

When: Tonight, 7, at Perry Hall Elementary

Outlook: Perry Hall has twice been shut out by No. 9 Milford Mill (16-0) and No. 10 Woodlawn (47-0), but the Gators (4-2 in Baltimore County's Class 3A-4A league) have won three straight and have never before lost to Eastern Tech (5-1 league). The Mavericks have a five-game winning streak since a 14-13 loss to Woodlawn.

Mount St. Joseph (4-3)

vs. St. Mary's (4-3)

When: Tomorrow, 2

Outlook: Ranked Nos. 1 and No. 2 respectively in the preseason, St. Mary's (0-1 in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference) and Mount St. Joseph (0-2) look to stay out of the conference cellar in this game at Anne Arundel Community College. The teams shared last year's title with Loyola (2-0 league).

No. 3 Calvert Hall (7-0)

at No. 4 Gilman (4-2)

When: Tomorrow, 1.

Outlook: Both Calvert Hall (1-0 in the MIAA A) and Gilman (1-1 league) have victories over Mount St. Joseph, which has won a share of the last three league titles. Gilman is led by sophomore QB Ryan Boyle, who has rushed for 348 yards and six touchdowns, and passed for 552 yards and four touchdowns. Calvert Hall relies on QB Jason Bungori, RB Chad Parsons (5-8, 215) and RB Greg Smoot (6-3, 225) and DL Lou Georgalas (6-3, 225).

No. 6 Hereford (7-0)

at Randallstown (6-1)

When: Tomorrow, 1

Outlook: In its third game, a 27-20 victory at North Carroll, Hereford (5-0 against Baltimore County's Class 1A-2A teams) faced what was then a most talented backfield. But Randallstown (6-0 v. 1A-2As), winner of six straight since a 14-0 loss to No. 9 Milford Mill, has area rushing leader T. J. Stallings (1,109 yards and 15 touchdowns). "We'll have our hands full with his speed," said defensive coordinator Mike Blizzard, whose Bulls are seeking their 18th straight regular-season win and their 19th in 20. Both teams are in solid position to qualify for the state playoffs -- Hereford in 1A, Randallstown in 2A. Hereford's All-Metro RB-DB Jason Wingeart (hip injury) is questionable.
