Football games


Dunbar (6-3) at No. 14 Forest Park (8-1)

When: 2:30 p.m.

Outlook: This game is for the city 1A title. The Poets were humbled, 42-0, by Gilman last week and could jeopardize their 1A playoff hopes with a loss. The Foresters have won seven straight games, including last week's win over Carver, which defeated Dunbar earlier in the season.

Francis Scott Key (6-3) at Williamsport (1-7)

When: 7 p.m.

Outlook: A year ago, Williamsport abruptly ended Key's hopes for a perfect season with a 23-20 overtime win in the regular-season finale. The Eagles scored 52 points last week against Catoctin, with tailback Brad Stonesifer rushing for 267 yards and four TDs, and throwing for another score.

Liberty (2-7) at North Carroll (1-8)

When: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Liberty, which won eight games a year ago, hopes to end its disappointing season on a high note. Running backs Cam Mast and Nick Sargent have rushed for nearly 1,000 yards combined, but the Lions haven't scored a touchdown in nine quarters.

Westminster (7-2) at South Carroll (5-4)

When: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Westminster not only must win this game, but must get help from other teams in order to sneak into the Class 4A playoffs. Coming off a 29-0 loss to powerful Urbana, the Owls face another test in the Cavaliers.

Severn (5-4) vs. St. Mary's (6-3)

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

Outlook: The Admirals and Saints are both 2-1 in the MIAA B Conference and the winner will finish as co-champion with Archbishop Curley (7-2, 3-1). Each team has lost a key player to injuries, St. Mary's its QB Marc Parreco and Severn, its leading rusher Sean Etter.

Glen Burnie (6-3) at No. 8 Old Mill (7-2)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Gophers' chances of a first-ever playoff berth are extremely remote if they win, but Old Mill would be in as a 4A East at-large team if it wins. Glen Burnie's Keith Williams, the second QB in the county to throw and rush for 1,000 yards in a season, can add to his county record of 2,310 total offensive yards and needs two TDs to break the county record (23) for most rushing TDs by a QB, and could become the first QB to lead the county in rushing yards.

No. 4 Meade (8-1) at Arundel (3-6)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The streaking Mustangs can wrap up the 4A East top seed and automatic home game in the state quarterfinals with a victory. It would be Meade's ninth straight win and would set a regular-season school record for wins.

No. 5 Broadneck (8-1) at North County (2-7)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Broadneck can clinch its fourth playoff berth in five years, and if Arundel upsets Meade, the Bruins could be the top seed in the 4A East.

No. 9 Annapolis (7-2) at Severna Park (1-8)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Tumbling from No. 2 to No. 9 in The Sun poll following a 20-14 loss to Old Mill, the Panthers can clinch their fifth straight playoff berth with a win over the host Falcons in the renewal of the county's oldest football rivalry. Annapolis, second in the 3A East, has won the past three and leads the series at 20-19-3.

Northeast (6-3) at Chesapeake (3-6)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Northeast can cap its best season since 1988 (7-3) by ending a nine-game losing streak to the Cougars in the 25th meeting between the two Pasadena-area schools.

South River (1-8) at Southern (4-5)

When: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The host Dawgs, who rolled, 38-0, over Great Mills in a makeup this past Monday, can finish .500 for a second straight season with their fourth straight win in the 24-year-old series.

Pallotti (1-6) at Archbishop Spalding (2-8)

When: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: With just seven seniors, Spalding has a shot at ending its seven-game losing streak.


No. 10 City (9-0) vs. Poly (6-3)

When: Noon at PSINet Stadium.

Outlook: This is the 113th meeting between the two schools, and Poly leads the series, 55-51-6. City, which could win the city 2A league crown with a win, already has clinched a 2A playoff berth and could remain the No. 1 seed. Poly is simply looking to end its season on a winning note.

No. 13 Gilman (5-4) at No. 1 McDonogh (9-0)

When: 1 p.m.

Outlook: The Greyhounds (3-1) are looking to clinch a tie for their fourth straight MIAA A Conference title against McDonogh (3-0 league), which edged Gilman, 7-0, last fall. McDonogh has a 19-game winning streak.

No. 7 Randallstown (8-1) at Milford Mill (7-2)

When: 1 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Rams (8-0 league) are looking to clinch their second straight Baltimore County 4A-3A conference crown outright. But the Millers (7-1 league) boast a potent passing game with QB Andre Brown and receivers Dayron Arnold and Quinton White.

Oakland Mills (5-4, 5-3) at Centennial (6-3, 5-3)

When: 2 p.m.
