Tomorrow

Oakland Mills (5-1) at No. 7 Glenelg (6-0)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Scorpions will be looking to regain some respect after last season's 35-0 trouncing by the Gladiators. Glenelg showed it can play with anyone last week, coming from behind to defeat physically superior Long Reach, 18-14. The Gladiators also showed they can pass.

Howard (1-5) at Atholton (1-5)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: This should be a competitive game, each team seeking sweetness to improve generally sour seasons. The Raiders came close to victory last week but lost to Cardinal Gibbons, 29-21. The Lions were blanked for the third time, losing to Severn, 39-0.

No. 8 Wilde Lake (6-0) at Centennial (3-3)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Wildecats' dream of an undefeated season is inching closer to reality after a 20-16 victory over River Hill last week. The Eagles are hoping for a repeat of last season's competitive contest that the Wildecats won, 14-7. Centennial's passing game will have to be sharp.

Hammond (2-4) at Long Reach (3-3)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Golden Bears are probably still wincing after losing to Mount Hebron last week, 17-14. Long Reach lost an equally disappointing game to Glenelg, 18-14. The Lightning beat the Bears by only 12-0 last season and must summon its pride if it hopes to prevail again.

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

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Look for a victory by the Hawks over Century, a new Carroll County team that has struggled but defeated Hyde School (Washington, D.C.) on Monday. River Hill quarterback Chris Martin will play sparingly because of a collarbone bruise from last week's 20-16 loss to Wilde Lake.
