Lake Clifton (3-1) at No. 9 Edmondson (4-0)

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Lakers enter this nonleague Baltimore City contest after winning three straight games with two shutouts, including last week's 10-0 victory over City. Coach James Monroe has three running backs that have combined for more than 1,000 yards and five touchdowns. LB Mark Hicks anchors a defense that has allowed only a touchdown in four games with three shutouts. Edmondson's offense has scored 148 points and boasts three running backs that rank among the area's top rushers.

No. 7 Patterson (4-0) at City (3-1)

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: The high-scoring Clippers, who have outscored opponents 169-12 with two shutouts, face City in a nonleague game. RB-LB Thomas Smith leads the way for Patterson. The host Knights, who last fall gave eventual Class 2A state champion Hereford one of its most difficult games, are trying to regroup after last week's 10-0 loss at Lake Clifton.

Havre de Grace (2-2) at Aberdeen (3-0)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Harford County's two northern-most schools take center stage. QB Shane West returned last week from injury and threw three touchdown passes in Havre de Grace's 21-7 victory at Bel Air. Aberdeen edged C. Milton Wright in overtime, thanks primarily to QB-LB Erin Henderson and LB-RB Carl Stokes.


No. 3 Calvert Hall (4-0) at No. 6 Mount St. Joseph (3-2)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: After putting up major numbers in last week's 48-45 loss to top-ranked Gilman, the host Gaels (0-1 league) are looking to beat a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference opponent. Calvert Hall (1-0 league) has won the past two contests. Its defensive line averages 6 feet 1 and 240 pounds, led by Devon Douglass (6-3, 270). Its offensive line averages 6-1, 235 pounds, led by Matt Janowski (6-4, 305). Where the Gaels have QB Nick Tanis, the Cardinals have Andrew Goldbeck. Mount St. Joe has All-Metro RB Keon Lattimore, and Calvert Hall has RBs Marques Thompson and Nick Williams.

No. 1 Gilman (5-0) at Curley (3-1)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Four-time MIAA A Conference champion Gilman visits the defending B Conference co-champion. The visiting Greyhounds gave up 45 points in last week's victory over Mount St. Joseph, and the Friars are looking to catch them with RBs Jamaal Walker (491 rushing yards, four TDs) and Justin Wright (327 yards, five TDs).

Dulaney (3-1) at Dundalk (4-0)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: This one's for first place in Baltimore County's 4A-3A League. Dulaney (3-0 league) has beaten two local powers in Woodlawn and Randallstown. Dundalk (3-0 league) has beaten one power in Milford Mill. RB Eric Sogcsack (365 yards, eight TDs) leads Dulaney, and RB Jaired Rose guides Dundalk. The game could be won at the line of scrimmage, where each team has solid linemen.

Catonsville (3-1) at Overlea (3-1)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: The Comets (2-1 league) are coming off an impressive 28-21 rout of Baltimore County 2A-1A rival Owings Mills. In that game, RB Irwin Davis scored twice as they built a 28-0 first-half lead. But Overlea (3-1 league) is averaging more than 40 points in its victories. It is led by WR Antowan Bell (464 yards, four TDs) and QB Craig McIntosh (806 passing yards, 11 TDs).
