Today

Edmondson (6-2) at City (6-2)

Time: 2:30 p.m.

Outlook: This Baltimore City Division I game puts the defending league champion Red Storm against City College, with each team sharing a 5-2 league record and aspirations of maintaining their fading chances at reaching the state playoffs. The game also features two of the state's winningest coaches in Edmondson's Pete Pompey and City's George Petrides.

Overlea (6-2) vs. No. 1 Eastern Tech (8-0)

Time: 7 p.m.

Where: CCBC-Essex.

Outlook: Overlea (5-0 league) enters this Baltimore County 3A-2A contest having won won five straight, and its starting defense has allowed only six points in its past four games. Eastern Tech (5-0 league) has five shutouts this year, and eight during its 14-game, regular-season winning streak. Mavericks QB Josh Hager has not experienced defeat as a high school starter - a span of 10 JV games and 14 varsity games. The winner clinches at least a tie for the league title. Eastern Tech has clinched a 2A North region playoff berth, but Overlea is on the bubble.

No. 3 Woodlawn (7-1) at Perry Hall (6-2)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Woodlawn (5-0 league) has won six straight games, clinched a berth in the 4A North region playoffs and can clinch at least a tie for its second straight Baltimore County 4A-3A crown. Perry Hall (3-2 league) can solidify a 4A North regional berth in victory, and is trying to rebound from a 23-22 loss to rival Dulaney that ended a two-game winning streak.

Tomorrow

No. 8 Loyola (5-3) at Mount St. Joseph (4-4)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Loyola (2-0 league) has won two straight games and can clinch at least a tie for its first crown since 1997 with a win in this MIAA A Conference game. But the Gaels (1-2 league) have a two-game winning streak of their own. That streak includes a 38-35 win over rival McDonogh.

W.E.B. DuBois (5-2) at Sparrows Point (3-4)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: DuBois of Baltimore City enters this game at Baltimore County's Sparrows Point with a good chance to qualify for the Class 1A South region playoffs. If successful, the second-year program will join at least two recent teams that reached the postseason in only their second year of varsity play.
