Edgewood (4-2) at Fallston (3-3)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Edgewood and the Cougars are among six teams tied at 2-1 in the Harford County League. Before last week's 31-28 overtime loss to Havre de Grace, Edgewood had not allowed more than 13 points in a game. Fallston, with a huge offensive line, generated nearly 300 yards in last week's come-from-behind 18-7 win at Aberdeen.

Archbishop Curley (4-2) at St. Paul's (3-3)

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Friars (1-0 league), defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference Gold Division co-champs, are led by running backs Jamaal Walker (675 yards, eight touchdowns), Justin Wright (612, six) and Josh Tracey (495, five). St. Paul's (1-1 league) is coming off a 33-6 loss to No. 3 Calvert Hall. Running back Brian McGettigan leads St. Paul's.

Pallotti (4-2) at Boys' Latin (6-0)

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: Pallotti (1-0 league) has won three straight games entering this MIAA B Conference Silver Division contest, but Boys' Latin (3-0 league) will be playing with intensity, knowing a win can lock up the division crown.

No. 15 City (5-1) at No. 9 Dunbar (6-0)

Time: 3:45 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Knights in this non-league game have won two straight by a combined 50-0. City coach George Petrides relies on offensive lineman Robert Capers (6-foot-4, 305 pounds) and running back/linebacker Durant Cephers. Dunbar is led by running back Eric Valentine (624 yards, seven touchdowns), quarterback Byron Selby (804, eight) and wide receiver/defensive back Herman Hayes (18 catches, 506 yards, nine touchdowns). The Poets are coming off a 12-0 shutout of Carver.

Pikesville (5-1) at Overlea (4-2)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Look for this Baltimore County 2A-1A League clash to be high-scoring. Leading Pikesville (3-0 league) is second-team All-Metro quarterback/defensive back Damond Malloy, who has rushed for an area-high 1,233 yards and 25 touchdowns and passed for 737 yards and 10 touchdowns. Overlea (5-1) is led by quarterback Craig McIntosh (1,007 passing yards, 12 touchdowns) and wide receiver Antowan Bell (33 catches, 618 yards, five touchdowns).


No. 1 Gilman (7-0) at No. 3 Calvert Hall (6-0)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: This MIAA A Conference game has the makings of a classic. It's Gilman coach Biff Poggi taking his alma mater against Calvert Hall coach Jay Robinson's alma mater. It's Gilman's 6-5 defensive ends Victor Abiamiri and Luke Wilson vs. Calvert Hall's Matt Janowski (6-4, 305) and a line averaging 235 pounds. It's All-Metro Gilman quarterback Ambrose Wooden (1,150 rushing yards, 16 touchdowns, 775 passing yards, nine touchdowns) against Calvert Hall quarterback Andrew Goldbeck (782 yards, seven touchdowns) and running backs Marques Thompson (1,020 yards, 10 touchdowns) and Nick Williams (534 yards, nine touchdowns). At wide receiver, Gilman's Anthony Triplin (33 catches, 505 yards, six touchdowns) will try to outdo Calvert Hall's Lamar Williams (278 yards, five touchdowns) and Dan Spriggs (400, two). Each team has a soccer-playing place-kicker with a big foot. Go early; a huge crowd is expected.
