Anne Arundel

Who

No. 9 Broadneck at No. 10 Old Mill

Sport, When

Boys soccer, Friday, 7:15 p.m.

Outlook

The Bruins have been a surprise after going 5-9-1 in 2004. They're led by Brendan O'Leary, who has a team-high five goals. Old Mill, the defending county champion, is looking to bounce back after a 3-0 loss to Arundel.

Baltimore City

Who

Gibbons at Severn

Sport, Time

Football, Friday, 4 p.m.

Outlook

The Crusaders enter this Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference interdivisional game on a roll that includes a 29-0 shutout of last year's co-champ, St. Vincent Pallotti, on Sept. 23. Antwarn Jones is closing in on Gibbons' career rushing record, and running mate Kiero Small adds depth. Severn won, 39-6, last year.

Baltimore County

Who

St. Paul's at Archbishop Spalding

Sport, Time

Football, Friday, 7 p.m.

Outlook

This MIAA B Conference game features two of the league's top teams. The Crusaders of the North Division are led by Nathan Matthews, who two weeks ago threw three touch-down passes in a 35-0 rout of Severn. The Admirals compete in the South Division.

CARROLL

Who

No. 2 Liberty at No. 14 Winters Mill

Sport, When

Volleyball, Friday, 6 p.m.

Outlook

The Lions' three-year winning streak is on the line against the upstart Falcons, who have been the surprise team in the county. Liberty, the two-time defending Class 2A state champion, hasn't lost since the 2002 state semifinals. The Falcons are having their best season in school history.

HARFORD

Who

C. Milton Wright at North Harford

Sport, When

Football, Friday 7:30 p.m.

Outlook

Both teams are coming off big victories last week. C.M. Wright pulled out a 33-25 win over Aberdeen, while North Harford used its strong running game for a 22-7 win over Joppatowne. This will be a good mid-season test for both teams.

HOWARD

Who

River Hill at Wilde Lake

Sport, Time

Football, Friday, 7 p.m.

Outlook

Defending county champ River Hill - 5-0 overall and in league play - hasn't had a formidable challenge, outscoring its opponents 136-23. The Wildecats (2-1 in the league) are coming off a 42-13 win over J.M. Bennett, but are looking to bounce back in league play after a 26-7 upset loss to Howard two weeks ago.
