Hammond (1-3) at Century (0-4)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Golden Bears have the opportunity to win their second straight after rallying in the fourth quarter and winning in overtime against Rockville last week, 28-21. First-year Century, riddled by injuries, has been outscored 160-28, including last week's 64-13 loss to Martinsburg.

Mount Hebron (1-3) at Howard (0-4)

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Vikings seek their first county victory after a disappointing 13-7 loss to Atholton last week. Howard, which has surrendered 198 points, must improve defensively if it hopes to win its first game. The Vikings defeated the Lions last season, 28-12.

Wilde Lake (4-0) at Spingarn (0-3)

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: This should be a breather on the Wildecats' schedule as they prepare for a showdown with River Hill next week. Wilde Lake has outscored its opponents 167-21. The Wildecats got a pair of 100-plus-yard rushing efforts from A. J. Case (165) and Austen Merrills (131) in last week's 47-7 rout of Oakland Mills.


Oakland Mills (3-1) at River Hill (4-0)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Scorpions are undefeated (6-0) against River Hill and will have something to prove after last week's 47-7 thrashing by Wilde Lake. The Hawks are coming off their biggest win of the season, a 12-6 victory over Long Reach that proved they can hang with the big boys.

No. 10 Glenelg (4-0) at Atholton (1-3)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: This is Glenelg's last chance to get healthy before facing back-to-back tough weeks against Long Reach and Oakland Mills. Atholton shocked Mount Hebron last week, 13-7, breaking a 13-game losing streak. The Raiders are hoping the momentum from that victory carries over.

Long Reach (2-2) at Centennial (3-1)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Lightning made several costly mistakes in last week's 12-6 upset loss to River Hill. The Eagles, with victories over three struggling teams, face their first real test since losing to Glenelg in the opening game of the season, and will need some charity from Long Reach to stay close.
