October 19, 2005

Baltimore City

Who

Cardinal Gibbons at St. Paul's

Sport, When

Football, Friday, 3 p.m.

Outlook

This is a crucial Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference North Division game. Cardinal Gibbons has won four of its past five. Gibbons and St. Paul's are vying with Boys' Latin to win the North Division and earn a spot in the inaugural conference title game against the South Division champion on Nov. 11 at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium.

Baltimore County

Who

Eastern Tech at Overlea

Sport, Time

Football, Friday, 7 p.m.

Outlook

Two of the best teams in Baltimore County's 2A-1A League meet in a contest that not only could lead to determining the conference champion, but which also has Class 2A North regional playoff implications. The schools are located within minutes of one another, so many of the players attended the same middle schools and played for some of the same recreation teams.

Carroll

Who

Thomas Johnson at No. 2 Liberty

Sport, When

Volleyball, Thursday, 6 p.m.

Outlook

The Lions have won 49 straight matches, a metro-area record, but extending the streak to 50 won't be easy. Frederick's Thomas Johnson entered the weekend at 9-1, including nine straight wins. Liberty coach Dave Trumbo is hoping his team will be able to shake off any rust after a 10-day layoff.

Harford

Who

Joppatowne at Bel Air

Sport, When

Football, tomorrow, 7 p.m.

Outlook

Both teams need this game to keep their postseason hopes alive. Bel Air (3-3, 1-1 Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference) is coming off a 47-22 loss to Edgewood last week. Joppatowne (5-1, 2-1) lost to Bel Air last season.

Howard

Who

No. 1 Centennial at No. 5 Glenelg

Sport, Time

Volleyball, Thursday, 5:30 p.m.

Outlook

The two teams played an exciting five-game match in their first meeting on Sept. 13, with host Centennial taking the deciding game by 27-25. The Eagles - seeking their 27th straight win - rely on setter Jen Feldmann, libero Jennifer Hilchey and a number of talented hitters, while the bigger Gladiators counter with a power game led by hitter Brooke Winterling.
