Tomorrow

River Hill (4-1) at No. 10 Wilde Lake (5-0)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Something has to give in this game of Class 3A standouts. The Wilde Lake defense is allowing just five points a game and has two shutouts. The River Hill offense is averaging 27 points and has not been shut out. Last season, the Hawks beat the Wildecats for the first time, 12-7.

Long Reach (3-2) at No. 7 Glenelg (5-0)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Lightning can salvage some pride by playing spoiler to Glenelg's county championship and playoff hopes. The Gladiators, who have won 19 straight league games, face one of their toughest challenges. Glenelg won last year's matchup, 27-7.

Centennial (3-2) at Oakland Mills (4-1)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: After a soaring start, Centennial was brought back to earth last week by Long Reach, 36-0. Oakland Mills, meanwhile, pounded out a hard-fought victory over previously unbeaten River Hill, 14-8. The Scorpions defeated the Eagles a year ago, 32-8, and should have the edge again.

Cardinal Gibbons (0-5) at Atholton (1-4)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Michael Holley leads Atholton's offense in rushing and scoring and the defense is led by LB Brian Ringer and DE Carson Nickel. The Raiders have a shot at their second victory against a Cardinal Gibbons team that lost last week to Friends, 28-19.

Mount Hebron (1-4) at Hammond (2-3)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Can Mount Hebron regroup after last week's heartbreaking overtime loss to Howard? Can Hammond, a 43-13 winner over Century last week, capture its third straight victory as it strives for at least a .500 season? Hammond won last year, 12-3.

Severn (3-1) at Howard (1-4)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Severn, last season's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference co-champion, is led by RB Darnell Jones, who rushed for 192 yards in a 35-6 win over Spalding last week. Howard rallied to defeat Mount Hebron in overtime, 27-26.
