Tomorrow

No. 13 Wilde Lake (3-0) at Oakland Mills (3-0)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Freshman quarterback Nick Finney completed 11 of 12 passes for 172 yards and two touchdowns in last week's 48-7 trouncing by the Scorpions of Cardinal Gibbons. Wilde Lake intercepted five passes in a 28-14 win over Long Reach last week. Oakland Mills beat the Wildecats last season, 28-14.

River Hill (3-0) at No. 14 Long Reach (2-1)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Long Reach defeated River Hill last season, 20-19, and this game could be just as close. The Lightning needs to rebound after losing to Wilde Lake last week. A victory for the Hawks, 38-14 winners over Atholton last week, would go a long way toward earning a playoff berth.

Howard (0-3) at Glenelg (3-0)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Glenelg, defending county champion, won its 17th straight league game by beating Hammond last week, 49-13. Tim Siders rushed for 193 yards and Kevin Ganascioli for 121 yards. Howard scored its first points of the season last week but lost to Linganore, 63-14.

Atholton (0-3) at Mount Hebron (1-2)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Vikings gave up five touchdown passes to Centennial last week and appear vulnerable in the secondary if the Raiders can mount a passing attack. Atholton scored its first points of the season in a 38-14 loss to River Hill last week, but Mount Hebron has an edge in this one.

Hammond (0-3) at Rockville (1-2)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Rockville, which runs a wing-T, has beaten Bethesda-Chevy Chase (28-14) and lost to Blake (27-0) and Wooten (21-7). The Bears have scored 48 points but allowed 116. Hammond won the only previous meeting.

Centennial (2-1) at Hickey (0-3)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Quarterback Scott Middleton has led the Eagles to two victories by completing 26 of 49 passes for seven touchdowns and 352 yards. The Eagles will go as far as he takes them.
