Chesapeake (3-3) at Glen Burnie (2-4)

Time: 4 p.m.

Outlook: This game was moved to the afternoon because of a lighting problem and should allow the Gophers to see better the Cougars' blur of a spin-back in junior Gary Townes (902 yards and nine touchdowns rushing, 692 yards, seven touchdowns passing). While awaiting the hearing of their appeal on two forfeits, the Gophers hope to keep hopes of a playoff berth alive.

No. 1 Old Mill (6-0) at No. 4 Broadneck (6-0)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Featuring the county's top two defenses, this game could decide the county title and top seed in the Class 4A East region playoffs - if the two teams keep winning. Broadneck's defense, led by linebacker Tyler Moyer, has recorded three straight shutouts (and four total) and has allowed only 20 points. Old Mill has given up 46 points but has scored 30.5 points a game behind quarterback John Brown (781 yards, seven touchdowns) and rusher Devin Bradley (727 yards, six touchdowns). Quarterback Tony Marino (625 yards, six touchdowns) leads the Bruins.

No. 15 Southern (AA) (6-0) at Severna Park (4-2)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: A.J. Lee (763 yards, 10 touchdowns) and his teammates hope to spoil the Falcons' homecoming weekend. Severna Park's defense, led by linebackers Andrew Ferris and Alex Kin and linemen Rob Dooley and Chris Anthony, will be put to the task.

Northeast (0-6) at Annapolis (2-4)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The host Panthers, who got on the scoreboard last week for the first time in four games in a 16-14 loss to Glen Burnie, are in dire need of a win. Northeast hasn't been able to generate much offense but has played well defensively.

South River (2-4) at Meade (1-5)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Having its only win by forfeit, Meade is looking for its first win on the field but might have a lot of trouble stopping Hawks junior running back Mike Evans (755 yards, seven touchdowns).


Archbishop Spalding (5-1) at John Carroll (4-2)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: After missing a chance to tie the school record for most wins in a season (six) last week in a 14-13 loss at Boys' Latin, the Cavaliers face the Patriots in a key Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association C Conference game. For the Cavs, who are 1-1, this is a must-win if they're to stay alive for the league title. The Patriots are 2-1 in the conference.

Cardinal Gibbons (6-0) at Severn (3-3)

Time: 2.30 p.m.

Outlook: The injury-hampered Admirals, 1-1 in MIAA B Conference, are playing before a homecoming crowd. The Crusaders, trying for their school's first 7-0 record, are 1-0 and averaging 36.7 points a game.
