Football games

No. 9 Old Mill (6-1) at No. 10 Meade (6-1)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: If the playoffs were to start this week, both teams would be in from the 4A East, but Old Mill would be the eighth and final seed. It's a near must win for Old Mill, which appears to have a tougher schedule the last two weeks. Defense will settle this one with the edge going to Kerry Blake and the visitors.

South River (1-6) at No. 2 Annapolis (6-1)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Host coach Roy Brown has to keep his Panthers from looking ahead to next week's big game with Old Mill and avoid a letdown against the Seahawks. Of course, when you are averaging 34 points a game going against a team giving up 30 per, the big upset is unlikely.

No. 5 Broadneck (6-1) at Southern- AA (3-3)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: It's never an easy game at Harwood for the visitor and the Bruins won't be taking the well-coached Dawgs lightly. Big plays by the Matt Lewis- and Preston Pehrson-led defense may be needed again for Broadneck to hold on to its 4A East Region lead.

Archbishop Curley (5-2) vs. St. Mary's (5-2)

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

Outlook: The Saints look to go to 3-0 in the MIAA B Conference to set up a big showdown at Severn (2-0 league) the final week. Geoff Christhilf (819 yards, 7 TDs) needs to churn out the yardage while the Saints' defense has to contain Eric Spence (781-14).

Chesapeake (3-4) at Glen Burnie (4-3)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Coming off a 28-21 loss to Broadneck, the host Gophers look to get the Keith Williams' show back on track to post their first winning season since 1994 (6-4).

Archbishop Spalding (2-6) at Boys' Latin (3-3)

When: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: Spalding has lost five in a row and visits a Lakers team that upset then No. 12 Curley, 16-13, two weeks ago before evening their record with a 22-12 win over Pallotti last week behind QB Pat Mahoney.

Severna Park (1-6) at Arundel (2-5)

When: 7.15 p.m.

Outlook: The Wildcats' offense has come alive for two straight wins while the visiting Falcons have lost five in a row and are in danger of having their worse season since 1985 (2-8).


Sidwell Friends (6-1) at Severn (5-2)

When: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Admirals are hoping Sean Etter, who has run for over 200 yards in each of his last two games including a school-record 271 two weeks ago, can keep it up. The Quakers have a pretty good QB in Chris Peterson.

Northeast (4-3) at North County (1-6)

When: 1 p.m.

Outlook: It's homecoming in Ferndale, where both teams have to be exhausted after last week. The Eagles were mesmerized, 46-6, by Annapolis and its county-record 491 yards rushing while the host Knights combined with Arundel for a county-record of 1,157 total yards in a 55-32 loss to the Wildcats.-
