October 06, 2006|By Lem Satterfield and Pat O'Malley


St. Mary's (5-0) @St. Paul's (4-1)

When -- Today, 3:45 p.m.

Outlook -- St. Mary's, which is 1-0 in the South Division behind 2-0 and seventh-ranked Archbishop Spalding, can clinch its first winning season since 2002 (7-2) with a victory. Dontra Peters leads St. Mary's in rushing with 563 yards and five touchdowns. Quarterback Darren Pastrana has thrown for 375 yards and four TDs. St. Paul's (1-1 in the North Division) counters with QB Brian Taaffe, who has completed 54 of 121 passes for seven TDs and running back Steve Stonesifer, who has rushed for 351 yards and four TDs.

Baltimore City

No. 8 Edmondson (3-1) @No. 11 Dunbar (2-2)

When -- Today, 3:45 p.m.

Outlook -- Can swift running back Tavon Austin of Dunbar (2-1 league) keep up with the Joneses of Edmondson (2-1 league) - RBs Sterling and Tariq Jones - in this city Division I game? Sterling (two touchdowns) and Tariq (219 yards, two TDs) led last week's 42-0 rout at Mervo, and Austin had 106 rushing yards and a touchdown in last week's loss to City.

Baltimore County

No. 12 Perry Hall (4-0) @Franklin (4-0)

When -- Tomorrow, 1 p.m.

Outlook -- Franklin (3-0 in county, 4A-3A league) is averaging 46 points with a balance of RB Scott Noble, wide receiver Rashad Blackwell, RB-DB-QB Jeromie Miller and QB-PK Josh Gibson. But the defense of the visiting Gators (3-0 league) has allowed only one team to score in double figures, and that was in last weekend's 35-14 blowout of Catonsville.

New Town (3-1) @Milford Mill (4-0)

When -- Tomorrow, 1 p.m.

Outlook -- After being humbled, 38-0, at county 2A-1A rival Hereford, the visiting Titans (2-1 league) rebounded with last week's 54-0 rout of Lansdowne, and have outscored their opponents, 95-3, with two shutouts in the games they've won. But the Millers (3-0 league) have won 15 of their past 16 county games, including eight straight.

Harford County

Fallston (4-0) @Edgewood (4-0)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- This Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference contest is between two of the three teams who lead the league's Chesapeake Division, along with North Harford (3-0, 1-0). Fallston (1-0 league) required a Sean Kelly-to-Matt Barile scoring pass to remain unbeaten with last week's 33-27 overtime win over Bel Air. The Rams (1-0 league) routed Aberdeen, 27-0.

Howard County

No. 2 River Hill (4-0) @Long Reach (3-1)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- River Hill enters the matchup of defending county co-champions having yielded an average of four points per game. Long Reach is averaging 36 points a game. The teams split their games last year.


No. 4 Gilman (1-2) @Mount St. Joseph (1-4)

When -- Tomorrow, 1 p.m.

Outlook -- Mount St. Joe (0-2 league) nearly upset No. 1 Loyola before losing, 16-14, during a game in which Jake Bohn rushed for 145 yards and two TDs, and had a fumble recovery and a sack on defense. Gilman (1-0 league) got three TDs from RB John Pagliaro in last week's 21-0 rout of Georgetown Prep.
