Varsity Football games to watch

November 03, 2006|By Lem Satterfield and Pat O'Malley

A. Arundel County

No. 8 Broadneck (7-1) @South River (6-2)

When -- Tonight, 6:30

Outlook -- South River starts the weekend in fourth place in the Class 4A East Region with a comfortable lead over fifth-place Thomas Stone (5-3) of Charles County. The Seahawks received a forfeit victory from Meade - because of the use of an ineligible player - to enhance their chances of gaining a postseason berth for the first time since 1991. An upset of the Bruins, who are second in the 4A East by a point to No. 6 Arundel (7-1), would all but clinch a berth.

Baltimore City

No. 7 Edmondson (7-1) @Poly (6-2)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- Both Poly, which lost, 32-8, last year to Edmondson, and the visiting Red Storm are 5-1 in the city's Division I and competing for berths in the Class 2A North Region playoffs. LB Kyle Jackson, RB Tariq Jones and DB Sterling Jones lead the Red Storm, which has outscored opponents 203-21 with five shutouts during its victories. RB-LB Lee Reynolds accounted for all of the points in Poly's 14-0 shutout last week of Carver to rebound from a loss to Dunbar that ended its five-game winning streak.

Forest Park (5-3) vs. Southside (6-2)

When -- Tomorrow, 1 p.m., at Poly

Outlook -- Forest Park, which has won five straight, and Southside, which has won six in a row, are each 5-1 in the city's Division II entering the game and competing for a berth in the Class 1A South Region. It's the first meeting of the two programs.

Baltimore County

Randallstown (5-3) vs. Eastern Tech (7-1)

When -- Tonight, 7, at Kenwood

Outlook -- Both Randallstown (5-2 league) and Eastern Tech (6-1 league) of the county's 2A-1A league are in a race for one of the four berths in the Class 2A North Region, along with county rivals Hereford (7-1), Milford Mill (6-2) and Overlea (5-3) and Baltimore City's Edmondson (7-1) and Poly (6-2). Eastern Tech, a 14-7 loser last year, has won six straight games.

Parkville (6-2) @Catonsville (5-3)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- Parkville (5-2 league) is led by LB Nick Von Canon (eight sacks) entering the county 4A-3A League game, which has playoff implications for both teams. The Knights are on the bubble in Class 4A North, as is Catonsville (4-3 league) in 3A North.

No. 9 Hereford (7-1) @Milford Mill (6-2)

When -- Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

Outlook -- Hereford (7-0 league) can clinch at least a tie for the county 2A-1A title against the defending conference champion Millers (5-2), who, like the Bulls, are chasing a berth in the 2A North Region playoffs. A 35-21 winner of last year's game, the Millers were shut out by identical scores of 21-0 by New Town and Eastern Tech.

MIAA A Conference

Landon (4-4) vs. No. 3 Gilman (5-2)

When -- Tonight, 7:45, at Johnny Unitas Stadium

Outlook -- Gilman is after its sixth straight win against Landon, a 14-0 loser of last year's game. After this game, the Greyhounds can focus on winning their eighth A Conference title in the past 10 years on Nov. 11 against McDonogh.

Georgetown Prep (5-3) @No. 10 McDonogh (4-3)

When -- Tomorrow, 2:30 p.m.

Outlook -- The winner could earn a share of the A Conference crown. The visiting Little Hoyas (2-1 league) have won three straight. The Eagles (2-1 league), a 24-14 loser in last year's meeting, look to rebound from an Oct. 21 overtime loss to conference rival Loyola.
