No. 4 Severna Park at No. 2 Arundel

Sport, When

Baseball, Friday, 4 p.m.

The top two contenders for the county championship meet in Gambrills in what is almost always an entertaining game. The Falcons have been getting solid pitching from Kyle Shifflette and Sammy Sheckells. The Wildcats are led by pitcher Tyler Hibbs, center fielder Corey Overholtzer, first baseman Sean Pleffner and third baseman Ricky Sillaman.

Baltimore County

Who

Franklin at No. 11 Dulaney

Sport, When

Boys lacrosse, Friday, 5:15 p.m.

Outlook

Franklin relies on a high-scoring attack led by Tommy Montanye and Matt Higgins, and is off to a blazing start. The Lions, who are the defending Class 4A-3A state champs, lost the bulk of their team to graduation. Dulaney, led by midfielder Nikk Davis and attackman Tim Purcell, has not lost to a Baltimore County rival since a 10-6 loss to Hereford in May 1999.

Baltimore City

Who

No. 3 Gilman at

No. 6 Mount St. Joseph

Sport, When

Boys lacrosse, Friday, 4 p.m.

Outlook

Entering this critical Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game, the Greyhounds lost three of their first six games. Gilman lost its league opener against No. 2 Boys' Latin on March 28. The Gaels, meanwhile, are loaded with talent and appear poised to have one of the best seasons in school history.

Howard

Who

Centennial at No. 14 Glenelg

Sport, When

Girls lacrosse, tomorrow, 4 p.m.

Outlook

Centennial has a balanced team led by senior attack Jessica Sturgill and senior defender Sara Cooper, both first-team All-County picks as juniors. Janna Faulkner anchors the midfield, with Caitlin Burr another stalwart on defense for the Eagles. The Gladiators, coming off their Class 2A-1A state title, lean on attacker Sara Marshall and midfielders Alex Mundy and Amanda Gable.

Harford

Who

C. Milton Wright at Fallston

Sport, When

Girls lacrosse, tomorrow, 7 p.m.

Outlook

The Mustangs' tough early schedule continues against a Fallston team that knocked off unbeaten Bel Air last week. C. Milton Wright's 60-game county unbeaten streak ended with a loss to North Harford on Friday, and the speedy Cougars will give the Mustangs another test.

Carroll

Who

South Carroll at Winters Mill

Sport, When

Boys lacrosse, Tuesday, 7 p.m.

Outlook

In a key early season matchup, the Cavaliers and Falcons will battle for position in the wide-open county lacrosse race. South Carroll started its season with three straight wins over defending regional champions Glenelg, Urbana and Westminster, and Winters Mill opened with close wins over Urbana and Century.
