Tomorrow

No. 6 Glenelg (5-0 overall, 4-0 league) at No. 10 Centennial (5-0, 4-0)

When: 2

Outlook: Without question, the game of the week in Howard County, as the only two unbeated teams face each other. Glenelg finally got a test from River Hill last week, needing a 21-yard touchdown pass from Tim Phelps to Ryan Barnoski in the game's final minutes to pull out the 33-28 victory. However, this is first and foremost a running team behind Jay Hamilton and Kevin Ganascioli. The two have combined for over 1,100 yards already. Centennial, off to its first 5-0 start since 1980, will rely Pat Davis, who caught two touchdowns and kick two field goals in last week's win over Mount Hebron.

Howard (0-5, 0-4) at Hammond (1-4, 1-3)

When: 2

Outlook: The Lions and Bears were both shut out last week and could both use a victory to salvage disappointing seasons. Hammond has looked good on defense at times, forcing five turnovers in its 12-3 win over Mount Hebron, but has struggled offensively. The Lions are still searching for some offensive punch as well, relying on the hard-nosed running of James Coleman and sophomore Brian McGettignan.

Mount Hebron (3-2, 2-2) at Oakland Mills (2-3, 2-2)

When: 2

Outlook: The Scorpions appear to be warming up after last week's 32-0 victory over Howard. The return of lineman Andrew Croner has opened big holes for Justin Barnes, helping Oakland Mills outscore its last two opponents 73-6. Mount Hebron needs to regroup after consecutive losses to Hammond and Centennial. Quarterback Maurice Workman is expected to play despite bruising his ribs in last week's loss to the Eagles.

Wilde Lake (4-1, 3-1) at Long Reach (3-2, 2-2)

When: 2

Outlook: Long Reach ended a two-game losing streak last week, beating Hammond, 12-0, and could use a similar effort against Wilde Lake. The Wildecats looked good against Atholton last week as running back A.J. Case ran for 166 yards, the second time in three weeks he has gone over the 150 mark. As a team, Wilde Lake is averaging 268 yards rushing a game.

Atholton (0-5, 0-4) at River Hill (2-3, 2-2)

When: 2

Outlook: River Hill has looked great at times during the season, but has come up short in both of its league losses, falling in the final minutes to Long Reach in its league opener and Glenelg last week. Both teams prefer to throw the ball behind a pair of athletic quarterbacks in River Hill's Matt Hostetler and Atholton's Vyt Rivers. Hostetler has thrown for 738 yards and seven touchdowns, while Rivers has thrown for over 400.- Kevin Van Valkenburg
