Liberty (1-5) at South Carroll (4-2)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: South Carroll looks to rebound from consecutive losses to Central Maryland Conference powers Urbana and Linganore. Don't be fooled by records, however. Liberty has won the past four meetings, including last season's 14-7 surprise. The Cavaliers, led by quarterback Jake Mead (852 passing yards, nine touchdowns) and running back Jimmy Meetre (631 rushing yards, nine touchdowns), have scored 40 or more points three times and need to win out for a shot at the Class 3A playoffs.


Century (1-5) at River Hill (4-2)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Fresh off their first varsity win, the Knights are in for a much stiffer test this week. River Hill, coming off consecutive losses to Oakland Mills and Wilde Lake following a 4-0 start, features a balanced offense led by the rushing of Tim Morgan (490 yards, three touchdowns) and the passing of Chris Martin, whose nine touchdowns rank him among the area's leaders. Century running backs Jason Kingan and Matt Vander Veer combined for 149 rushing yards and three touchdowns in last week's win.

Bowling Brook (4-2) at Sidwell Friends (D.C.) (5-1)

When: 2:30 p.m.

Outlook: Coming off three straight wins, including a pair of shutouts, Bowling Brook should be at an emotional peak in Washington tomorrow. The Thoroughbreds will need to be, because they face one of the top private school programs in the city on Homecoming Day. Running back Jamie Donovan leads the way for the Quakers, who are coming off an overtime win against Allegany and shooting for their third straight conference title. Following two easy wins, this could be one of Bowling Brook's toughest tests this season.
