No. 2 Annapolis (5-1) at Northeast (4-2)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Panthers have been on a rampage, outscoring their last two opponents 96-0 while the host Eagles have not scored a point in losing two in a row. It was encouraging for the Eagles to play No. 9 Old Mill so tough last week in a 13-0 loss, but this well-balanced Annapolis wing-T rushing attack is too much with the likes of Eric Venerable (485 yards), Demario Harris (392) and Darren Johnson (381).

Chesapeake (3-3) at No. 9 Old Mill (5-1)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: After being upset, 35-20, by Arundel last week, the Cougars now have to win three of their last four to give 14-year coach Tom Kraning his first winning season. Host Old Mill's defense will be tough for the Cougars single-wing to score on and RB Brashaad Mayweather (709 yards, 11 TDs) returns for the Patriots after missing the Northeast game.

No. 10 Meade (5-1) at South River (1-5)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The Mustangs, another hot team like Annapolis, goes after their sixth win in a row in Edgewater with QB Antwan Smith, who has passed for 507 yards and run for 150 leading the way.

Calvert Hall (3-3) vs. St. Mary's (5-1)

When: 7 p.m., at Anne Arundel Community College.

Outlook: This is another non-league game for the B Conference-leading (2-0) Saints, who were defeated, 28-14, by top-ranked, A Conference-leading McDonogh last week. If the Saints' offense shows up this week to go with their outstanding defense, they should prevail over the up-and-down Cardinals.

North County (1-5) at Arundel (1-5)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The host Wildcats are after their second win in a row against the school that their coach and Arundel grad Chuck Markiewicz once ran. Markiewicz coached North County 11 seasons before moving to his alma mater. Arundel needs another big game from senior QB and three-sport (also basketball and baseball) athlete Jason Lively, who threw four TD passes last week.

Southern-AA (2-3) at Severna Park (1-5)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Visiting Southern blew a three-TD lead in the third period and lost to Glen Burnie, 35-28, last week while Severna Park was humbled, 46-7, by Meade. The host Falcons have to win four in a row to avoid their second straight losing season.


No. 5 Broadneck (5-1) at Glen Burnie (4-2)

When: 2 p.m.

Outlook: It's homecoming at Glen Burnie with the Gophers looking to jump into the 4A East playoff picture if they can upset the Bruins. The game pits the tough Broadneck defense vs. the explosive Gophers offense led by QB Keith Williams, who has run for 712 yards and 14 TDs while passing for 642 yards and four TDs.

Cardinal Gibbons (3-3) at Severn (3-3)

When: 1 p.m.

Outlook: This MIAA B Conference matchup features two outstanding RBs in the Crusaders' Hassan Muhammad (746 yards, 12 TDs) and Sean Etter (736 yards, 7 TDs) of the host Admirals.

Archbishop Spalding (2-5) at John Carroll (3-2)

When: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Spalding travels to Harford County, hoping to end a four-game losing streak with an MIAA C Conference victory. The Cavaliers have lost five in a row to the Patriots, who won, 37-13, last year, since tying them at 14 in 1995.
