Today

Boys' Latin (5-3) at Severn (5-3)

Time: 3.30 p.m.

Outlook: The Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association C Conference Lakers should be the perfect tune-up for the host Admirals, who next week face St. Mary's with a win meaning at least a share of the B Conference title for a third straight year.

Archbishop Curley (6-2) vs. St. Mary's (3-5)

Time: 4 p.m.

Where: Weems-Whalen

Outlook: The host Saints (0-2 league) are looking for their first MIAA B Conference win and a chance at a .500 season, which would mean an upset of Severn (2-1) next week.

Lutheran (1-7) at Archbishop Spalding (6-2)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: A school-record seventh win is likely for the Cavaliers, who should get a chance to play everybody against the Saints. Lutheran isn't likely to stop running back Mike Rutland (1,132 yards, 16 touchdowns).

Chesapeake-AA (5-3) at Annapolis (3-5)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Cougars, led by Gary Townes, can clinch only the second winning season in school history, the other in 1985 (6-4), snap their 18-game losing streak with the Panthers and enhance their chances of a first postseason berth. Townes, who has run for 1,117 yards, needs 66 passing yards to become the third twin-1,000 player in county history.

South River (4-4) at No. 2 Broadneck (8-0)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Much improved South River, with its junior duo of Mike Evans and Mike Walters having combined for 1,570 yards and 15 touchdowns rushing, will shoot for an upset of the Bruins, who are giving up only 5.6 points a game.

No. 14 Arundel (6-2) at Glen Burnie (4-4)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: In position for their first playoff berth since 1995, the visiting Wildcats and their no-huddle offense - led by quarterback Bobby Schram (1,820 yards, 19 touchdowns) and speedy Justin Lee and "Dollar Bill" Johnson - are averaging a county-best 32.8 points a game and can't afford a letdown.

Severna Park (4-4) at North County (0-8)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Coming off a tough 13-12 loss at Chesapeake's homecoming last week, the Falcons need to get well in Ferndale, where the Knights have lost 19 in a row. It's a must win for the Falcons, who are trying to take the fourth playoff spot in the 3A South.

Tomorrow

No. 13 Southern (AA) (7-1) at No. 15 Old Mill (6-2)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: Two-way standout back Bobby Atwell may return this week from an ankle injury. That would add fuel to the 2A playoff-bound Bulldogs' explosive, big-play offense that is averaging 31 points a game and could ruin homecoming for the Patriots, who have lost two in a row. Old Mill is battling for a 4A East berth.

Northeast (1-7) at Meade (0-8)

Time: 1:30 p.m.

Outlook: The host Mustangs are hoping homecoming and the running of Terrance Evans (415 yards) will bring that long-awaited first win against the Eagles, who are revved up after winning their first last week, 21-15 over Glen Burnie in OT.
