Football games to watch

Anne Arundel

Severna Park (5-0) @ No. 15 Old Mill (4-1)

When -- Tonight, 6:30

Outlook -- Severna Park puts its 16-game winning streak against county opponents on the line against an Old Mill team that has reeled off four in a row. QB Kelian Stevens is the Patriots' playmaker and his running (336 yards, six touchdowns) and passing (882 yards, nine TDs) will be a major concern for the Falcons. The Severna Park secondary, led by Brent Sanders, Chris Hunt, Eric Lusby and Tommy Bryant, will be tested. Old Mill's defense, which has given up only 35 points in its four wins, will face the Falcons' triple-option offense, led by junior QB Pat Morrison.

Baltimore City

No. 3 City (5-0) vs. Patterson (3-2)

When -- Tonight, 7, at Johns Hopkins

Outlook -- LB-RB Dominick Roseborough of defending city Division I champ City (4-0 league) accounted for all the points in last week's 14-0 win over Carver. Roseborough and the Knights have outscored opponents 130-18 with three shutouts. Patterson (1-2 league) has outscored its past two opponents 70-6.

Baltimore County

No. 13 Hereford (4-1) @ Overlea (4-1)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- Hereford (4-0 league) enters the county 2A-1A league game having averaged 50 points in four straight wins to rebound from a season-opening 10-7 loss to county 4A-3A power Perry Hall. The Falcons (3-1 league) are coming off a 35-0 shutout of Chesapeake-BC.

Kenwood (5-0) @ Catonsville (3-2)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- Kenwood (4-0 league) is having one of its best seasons in county 4A-3A and is in pursuit of a berth in the Class 4A North Region playoffs - its first since 1992. The Comets (2-2), who have reached the playoffs the past two years, are in a tight race in the Class 3A North Region.

Howard

No. 2 River Hill (5-0) @ Atholton (3-2)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- River Hill racked up nearly 500 all-purpose yards in last week's rout of Long Reach for sole possession of first place in the league. But the Raiders have averaged 55 points in two straight wins and their losses - to Wilde Lake, 14-7, and to Glenelg in overtime - were to teams the Hawks edged, 6-0, and, 13-9, respectively.

Long Reach (3-2) @ Wilde Lake (3-2)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- The county matchup features teams whose Class 3A East Region playoff hopes will be dashed in defeat. The visiting Lightning relies on QB-RB Keith Richardson, and the Wildecats lean on RB-LB Zach Brown.

MIAA

St. Paul's (5-1) @ No. 8 McDonogh (3-2)

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

Outlook -- LB Michael Moss is the top defender for the Crusaders of the B Conference. He had 10 tackles, six for losses, and a blocked punt in his team's 13-0 victory last week over previously unbeaten St. Mary's. WR Andrew Feinberg (five TD receptions) and the Eagles of the A Conference will be trying to avoid their second straight loss.

Cardinal Gibbons (6-1) @ No. 5 Archbishop Spalding (6-0)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- This could be a preview of the B Conference title game. Cardinal Gibbons leads the North Division and the defending champion Cavaliers are first in the South Division. Running back-linebacker Kiero Small leads the Crusaders, winners of four straight. RB-LB Jake Trantin leads the Cavaliers, who have outscored their past four opponents by a combined 167-9 with two shutouts.
