Football games to watch

October 27, 2006|By LEM SATTERFIELD AND PAT O'MALLEY

MIAA

No. 1 Loyola (7-0) @No. 4 Gilman (4-2)

When -- Today, 3:30

Outlook -- Loyola puts its eight-game winning streak on the line against the seven-time MIAA A Conference champion Greyhounds, who defeated the Dons, 14-0, last season. Each team is coming off an overtime victory. The Dons edged McDonogh, 34-28, and the Greyhounds notched their fourth straight win over Cumberland Valley, Pa., 36-35. If the Dons can secure wins over the Greyhounds and league rivals Georgetown Prep and Calvert Hall on Nov. 11 and 23, respectively, they could win their first MIAA A title since 2004.

Cardinal Gibbons (7-2) @Boys' Latin (6-1)

When -- Today, 2:30

Outlook -- RB-LB Kiero Small leads Gibbons (2-0 league) into the MIAA B Conference North Division matchup, as the Crusaders look to avenge last year's 16-13 loss. With a victory, the Crusaders could replace the Lakers (2-0 league) in the conference title game. The Lakers were title-game runners-up last season to Archbishop Spalding of the South Division.

St. Mary's (6-2) @No. 5 Spalding (8-0)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- The teams are tied for first place in the MIAA B Conference South Division at 2-0 and will have only one game left after this week. The South winner plays the North winner in the B Conference championship game on Nov. 10. Defending champion Spalding has one of the area's best rushing attacks. FB-LB Jake Trantin (904 yards, 10 TDs) leads a Cavaliers ground game that averages 342.5 yards and 37.5 points a game.

Anne Arundel

Annapolis (3-4) @No. 15 Old Mill (5-2)

When -- Tomorrow, 1:30

Outlook -- Coming off its 27-21 double-overtime upset of previously unbeaten and No. 14-ranked Severna Park (6-1), Annapolis hopes to spoil Old Mill's homecoming game. Old Mill is vying for a playoff berth in the Class 4A East region and needs a win.

Baltimore City

Dunbar (4-3) vs. Mervo (5-2)

When -- Tomorrow, 7, at Poly

Outlook -- Led by RBs Tavon Austin and Maurice Portee, Dunbar (4-2 league) has won its past two city Division I games by a combined 84-16 to rebound from a 12-0 shutout loss to No. 7 Edmondson. The Mustangs (4-2 league) shut down winless Douglass, 16-6, to bounce back from a 16-14 loss to Poly.

Baltimore County

Randallstown (5-2) @No. 13 Hereford (6-1)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- Randallstown (5-1 league), which won last year's county 2A-1A league contest, 14-6, has won five straight games by a combined 188-15. Hereford (6-1 league) has won six straight, including a 17-14 overtime victory against Overlea, which defeated Randallstown, 28-20.

Milford Mill (6-1) vs. Eastern Tech (6-1)

When -- Tonight, 7, at CCBC-Essex

Outlook -- Defending county 2A-1A league champion Milford Mill (5-1 league) and Eastern Tech (5-1 league) are in a tight battle for one of the four berths in the Class 2A North region playoffs.

Carroll County

No. 12 F.S. Key (6-1) @Middletown (6-1)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- Francis Scott Key and Middletown, each 3-0 in the league, could decide which will be the Piedmont Division champion in this Monocacy Valley Athletic Conference contest.
