Today

Overlea (4-2) at Pikesville (5-1)

When: 7 p.m.

Outlook: It is doubtful that either of these Baltimore County 2A-1A league teams can overtake either third-ranked Hereford or Eastern Tech for one of the top two positions in the conference, but each still has a distant chance of reaching the Class 2A state playoffs. Led by area scoring leader QB Damond Malloy (962 rushing yards, 18 TDs), the host Panthers have won five straight since a season-opening 17-15 loss to Mount Hebron.

Calvert Hall (3-3) vs. No. 14 St. Mary's (5-1)

When: 7 p.m. at Anne Arundel CC.

Outlook: Visiting Calvert Hall of the MIAA A Conference has wins over then-ranked opponents Woodlawn and Mount St. Joseph, as well as Carroll County power Westminster. The Cardinals have lost to No. 4 Gilman and No. 1 McDonogh, which handed St. Mary's of the MIAA B Conference its first loss last week. The Saints appear to be in control in the B Conference with wins over Gibbons and St. Paul's, but could gain a significant confidence boost with a victory over this A Conference rival.

Tomorrow

No. 1 McDonogh (6-0) at Mount St. Joseph (5-3)

When: 1 p.m.

Outlook: This MIAA A Conference game matches McDonogh QB Joe Benson, last fall's All-Metro Offensive Player of the Year, against the Gaels' Nick Tanis, who is averaging just over two TD passes per game. The visiting Eagles, winners of four straight MIAA B Conference crowns, are 1-0 in this year's move to the A Conference. McDonogh scored an earlier 30-7 rout of Calvert Hall, which edged Mount St. Joseph two weeks ago. But the high-scoring host Gaels (0-2 league) could be difficult for McDonogh on their home field.

Milford Mill (5-1) at Woodlawn (5-1)

When: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Both teams enter this Baltimore County 4A-3A contest having won five straight league games after season-opening non-conference losses.
