Archbishop Spalding (5-0) at Boys' Latin (2-3)

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: In this Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association C Conference game, Spalding can match the school record for wins in a season, something that has happened only twice (1987, 1997) in 20 years. The Rutland twins, Mike and Steve, who have combined for 19 TDs, pace the offense, and the defense has given up just 59 points in five games.

No. 11 Arundel (4-1) at Southern-AA (4-1)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: This game has the potential to be a wild, high-scoring shootout in Harwood, with the no-huddle Arundel offense averaging 29.8 points and the Bulldogs 31 points. There is also little difference statistically in the defenses, with Arundel giving up 14.6 points and Southern 10.2. Arundel QB Bobby Schram leads the area in TD passes (11) and throwing yards (1,044) while Southern RBs A.J. Lee and Bobby Atwell have combined for 16 TDs.

Chesapeake (3-2) at No. 1 Old Mill (5-0)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Opponents have yet to stop Chesapeake's Gary Townes, who has rushed for 767 yards and eight TDs, while also passing out of the single wing for 629 yards and seven TDs. The Cougars, though, haven't been able to stop their foes, who are averaging 24.4 points. Old Mill is averaging 32.4 points with QB John Brown at the controls and RB Devin Bradley (651 yards, six TDs) leading the backs.

No. 4 Broadneck (5-0) at Northeast (0-5)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: After being blanked, 39-0, by Arundel last Friday, Northeast faces an even tougher defense in Broadneck, which has only given up 20 points in five games and posted a county-best three shutouts. Broadneck junior QB Tony Marino could have a big night against the Eagles' vulnerable pass defense.

Meade (0-5) at Severna Park (3-2)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: This is a must win for Severna Park, whose goal is to make the Class 3A playoffs. Coming off a bitter 28-6 loss to No. 1 Old Mill, the Falcons need to get their rushing game, led by RB Andrew Ferris, back on track.

Glen Burnie (3-2) at Annapolis (2-3)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Glen Burnie comes in with a rare three-game winning streak to face an Annapolis team that has been shut out an unprecedented three straight games. Glen Burnie's mammoth size has to control its foe's speed if the visitors are to beat the Panthers for the first time since 1995.

North County (0-5) at South River (1-4)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Host South River might be the best 1-4 team in the area. The Seahawks, with RB Mike Evans, have been in every game, all against winning teams. Their only victory came over 3-2 Glen Burnie, 27-16, and the combined record of the four teams they have lost to is 12-5. The Knights have lost 16 in a row.

St. Mary's (3-2) at Cardinal Gibbons (5-0)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: This MIAA B Conference contest could come down to whether St. Mary's RB Donte Sylve (823 yards, 10 TDs) has a bigger night than Gibbons' duo of Cory Robinson and Antwarn Jones, who have combined for 933 yards rushing and 14 TDs.


Severn (3-2) at Archbishop Curley (4-1)

Time: 1 p.m. Outlook: Severn can go to 2-0 in the five-team MIAA B Conference with big games from QB Jamal Jones and RB Deon Peters, who has 746 yards and six TDs in three straight wins. Severn's defense has to prevent the Curley RB trio of Josh Tracey, Glen Williams and Allen Fadiora, who have combined for 1,544 yards and 21 TDs rushing, from keeping the ball out of Peters' hands.
