Tomorrow

Mount Hebron (4-2) at Reservoir (0-6)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Vikings seek their fifth straight victory and are beginning to raise their hopes for their first playoff spot since 1982. A strong passing game led Mount Hebron to a 14-8 win over Hammond last week, as QB Kyle Barnett completed 14 of 21 for 162 yards. Reservoir lost to Howard, 38-6.

Centennial (0-6) at Wilde Lake (5-1)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Wildecats are coming off a euphoric 21-14 overtime win against River Hill in which QB Chris Forest rushed 27 times for 169 yards and three TDs, and Alex Gould rushed 19 times for 149 yards. Centennial has never beaten Wilde Lake and suffered a 54-28 defeat by Oakland Mills last week.

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

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The Lightning had one of the top defenses in the county until last week when Glenelg exploded for 47 points against it. Brandon Goff scored on an 89-yard kickoff return and a 73-pass catch for the Lightning in the 47-21 defeat. Hammond dropped a close one to Mount Hebron, 14-8, on a TD pass with 47 seconds left. This is the Bears' homecoming game.

Glenelg (6-0) at Oakland Mills (5-1)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Anyone that doubted Glenelg's ability this season should have been convinced by last week's 47-21 win over Long Reach that the Gladiators are for real, as county rushing leader Tim Siders carried for 241 yards and four TDs. Not to be outdone, Oakland Mills also racked up a big score, winning by 54-28 over Centennial behind C.J. King's four TDs and 229 yards rushing. Glenelg defeated Oakland Mills last season, 28-13.

Southern-Balt. (1-5) at River Hill (5-1)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: Its unbeaten season ruined last week by a 21-14 overtime loss to Wilde Lake, River Hill attempts to bounce back against Class 1A Southern of Baltimore City, which defeated Reginald Lewis last week, 19-8. The Hawks, who have three starters out with injuries, are tied with Wilde Lake for the third seed in the Class 3A East region. This is their homecoming game.
