Long Reach (4-2, 3-2) at Howard (0-6, 0-5)

When: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Howard is hungry for a victory after being blown out again last week, but Long Reach is coming off its first ever victory over Wilde Lake, a game in which they burned the Wildecats for three fourth-quarter touchdowns. Calvin Maragh continues to be the Lightning workhorse. He scored twice last week in the 28-7 victory.


Oakland Mills (3-3, 3-2) at Wilde Lake (4-2, 3-2)

When: 2 p.m.

Outlook: One of Howard County's best rivalries features two of its best running backs this year, as Oakland Mills Justin Barnes and Wilde Lake's A.J. Case are expected to chew up plenty of yards. The difference, however, might just come down to the two quarterbacks. Wildecats quarterback Charles Berlin was 9 of 19 last week for 145 yards in a loss to Long Reach. Greg Braukus has been effective when called upon, but his main duty is to run the Scorpions' Wing-T offense, which has powered Oakland Mills to three straight victories.

Atholton (0-6, 0-5) at Mt. Hebron (3-3, 2-3)

When: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Raiders are still struggling, getting down 33-0 last week against River Hill before putting up 20 fourth-quarter points to make things look respectable. Mount Hebron, which began the season 3-0, dropped to 0-3 and needs a win to keep its once promising playoff hopes alive. Keep an eye on the quarterbacks. The Vikings' Maurice Workman and Atholton's Vyt Rivers are both athletic and fast.

No. 11 Centennial (5-1, 4-1) at River Hill (3-3, 3-2)

When: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Eagles' pride and defense took a hit last week after Glenelg rushed for over 300 yards in a 20-0 win, Centennial's first defeat of the year. Even worse, Centennial came out of the game banged up. Still healthy, however, is Pat Davis, who should see the ball more after carrying it only nine times last week. Matt Hostelter continues to shine, and should go over the 1,000-yard mark in passing this week. The senior threw two more touchdowns last week, giving him eight on the year.

Hammond (2-4, 2-3) at No. 6 Glenelg (6-0, 5-0)

When: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Gladiators keep on rolling, pilling up 322 rushing yards in last week's win over No. 11 Centennial. Kevin Ganascioli continued his role as Glenelg's big-play threat, breaking open the game with a 90-yard touchdown run, and finishing with 178 yards on only 15 carries. The Bears looked good in a 22-0 win over Howard, highlighted by Jay Chesley's 37-yard touchdown on a pass from quarterback Anthony Hunter
