Poly (5-2) at No. 6 Edmondson (7-0)

Time: 2:30 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Engineers (0-0 league) are riding a three-game winning streak into this Baltimore City Class 2A game, having beaten their opponents by a combined 102-12 with two shutouts. The Red Storm (0-0 league) is coming off its fourth shutout of the year, 30-0, over Forest Park - a team the Engineers vanquished, 18-17, earlier this year.

Walbrook (5-2) at Lake Clifton (5-2)

Time: 2:30 p.m.

Outlook: The Warriors (1-0 league) enter this Baltimore City Class 4A game having routed their last opponent, school No. 419, by 30-6. It was Walbrook's fifth straight win since losing its first two games to No. 11 City and No. 6 Edmondson. The Lakers (1-0 league), who handed City its only loss, 10-0, have won two straight games since losing at Edmondson.

Overlea (5-2) at No. 2 Hereford (7-0)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: This Baltimore County 2A-1A game featurers the area's top passer, Overlea's Craig McIntosh (1,325 yards, 14 touchdowns), its No. 2 receiver in the Falcons' 6-5, 190-pound Antowan Bell (41 receptions, 719 yards, six touchdowns) and the area's No. 1 rusher in Hereford's Adam Goloboski (1,432 yards, 18 touchdowns). The homestanding Bulls (6-0 league) are looking for their 21st straight victory - their 39th straight regular-season win. Overlea is 5-2 in league play.

Owings Mills (4-3) at Pikesville (6-1)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: In another Baltimore County 2A-1A league contest, the Eagles (3-3 league) are seeking to avenge last fall's last-second loss. But they face second-team All-Metro Damond Malloy of Pikesville (4-0 league), who ranks second among area rushers with 1,358 yards and an area-high 27 touchdowns and is the area's fifth-best passer with 922 yards and 12 touchdowns. Owings Mills' two-pronged rushing attack features Chris Patrick (554 yards, six touchdowns) and Craig Carter (509, six).

Towson (4-3) vs. Eastern Tech (5-2)

Site: CCBC-Essex

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Generals (3-3 league) enter this county 2A-1A game having routed their past two rivals by a combined 95-26. Eastern Tech (5-1 league) is still trying to maintain its slim playoff hopes, having ripped three straight opponents by a combined 161-6, led by quarterback/running back Dietrich Wright.

Woodlawn (5-2) vs. No. 9 Dundalk (7-0)

Site: CCBC-Dundalk

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: The winner of this Baltimore County 4A-3A league contest virtually clinches the league title. Woodlawn (5-1 league) has won four straight games, including last week's 38-0 rout of a Milford Mill squad Dundalk vanquished by only 12-7. Dundalk (6-0 league), an earlier 38-20 winner over Dulaney, will have to stop Woodlawn running back Michael Dobbins (591 yards, seven touchdowns).

No. 12 Joppatowne (6-1) at Edgewood (5-2)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Both the visiting defending champion Mariners and the host Rams are 3-1 in Harford County League play. Joppatowne's only conference loss came by 30-12 against North Harford, which the Rams defeated, 8-7. Edgewood's only loss was 31-28 in overtime against Havre de Grace, which Aberdeen - a 28-18 loser last week to Joppatowne - defeated, 34-17.


No. 10 Boys' Latin (6-0) at No. 3 Calvert Hall (6-1)

When: 1 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Lakers routed Pallotti, 35-0, last week to win their first title - the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference Silver - since 1977. But will the Lakers be content with that, or will they tackle a bigger fish in MIAA A Conference power Calvert Hall? The Cardinals lost last week, 21-14, to No. 1 Gilman.
