Class 4A North

Sherwood (9-2) @No. 10 Perry Hall (10-1)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- Sherwood (Montgomery County) plays at Perry Hall for the second straight season, having blown out the Gators, 42-0, in last year's title game en route to finishing as state runner-up. Sherwood is led by QB Deontay Twyman, who threw for 181 yards and two TDs in last week's 39-7 victory over Thomas Johnson. Perry Hall QB Jason Mattison, who has 15 TD passes, rushed for his 10th and 11th scores of the year in a come-from-behind 14-10 win over Parkville last week.

Class 4A East

No. 12 Old Mill (9-2) @No. 6 Broadneck (10-1)

When -- Tonight, 6:30

Outlook -- Broadneck's only loss was a 16-3 setback to Old Mill on Sept. 29. Sophomore QB Kyle Colleran has led the Bruins' option offense to 77 points in its past two games. Chris McDermott (11 field goals) could give Broadneck an edge in a close game. Old Mill's playmaker, QB Kelian Stevens (846 yards and 11 TDs rushing; 1,491 and 10 TDs passing), will be a big concern for the Bruins' defense. Malcolm Green and Marvin Pinkney have five interceptions each for Old Mill.

Class 3A North

Franklin (9-2) vs. No. 2 City (11-0)

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

Outlook -- In its first regional title game and its first playoff since 1994, Franklin might have the most diverse offense City has faced with RB-LB Scott Noble (1,659 yards, 28 TDs), QB Josh Gibson (17 TD passes), WR Rashad Blackwell and WR-DB-QB Jeromie Miller. But City's OL-DL James Carmon (6 feet 7, 325 pounds) leads a defending regional champion that has won 21 of its past 22 games and has outscored opponents, 350-24, with eight shutouts.

Class 3A East

No. 15 Severna Park (9-2) @No. 1 River Hill (11-0)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- Severna Park plays River Hill in a rematch of last year's title game won by River Hill, 34-28. Severna Park shut down two 1,000-yard rushers in last week's 28-0 defeat of Edgewood, led by DBs Brent Sanders and Tommy Bryant, DEs Mark Hepburn and Tambua Bradford, and LB Porter Johnson. River Hill ousted North Harford, 27-7, as RB-DB Michael Campanaro scored a touchdown receiving, one rushing and one on a recovered fumble.

Class 2A North

No. 9 Hereford (10-1) vs. No. 5 Edmondson (10-1)

When -- Tonight, 7, at Poly

Outlook -- Three-time state champion Hereford is 5-0 in playoff games against Baltimore City teams, including wins of 35-8 and 35-0 over Edmondson in 2002 and 2004. Hereford has won 10 consecutive games led by RB Nick Narango, LB Jon Pugh, QB Nick Aiello, WR Christian Pavik and OL Les Delmont. Edmondson has won eight straight and is led by RB Tariq Jones, LB Kyle Jackson, DB Sterling Jones and OL-DLs Jerome Baskerville and Dujuan Smith.

Class 2A East

Southern (7-4) @Wicomico (10-0)

When -- Tonight, 7

Outlook -- Led by LB-RB Eric Foote and linebacker Justin Chura, Southern earned its fifth win in the past six games last week, defeating previously unbeaten Queen Anne's, 20-12. Wicomico, which took a 49-point scoring average into last week's game against Joppatowne, defeated the Rams, 28-13.

Class 1A North

Havre de Grace (7-4) vs. No. 11 New Town (9-1)

When -- Tomorrow, 1, at Woodlawn High

Outlook -- Havre de Grace has averaged 50 points in three straight victories and has won five of its past six led by QB Josh Appold (1,771 yards passing, 19 TDs) and WR Travis Brown (49 receptions, 972 yards, 10 TDs). New Town has won seven straight led by DE Trent Parham (11 sacks) and LB Chad Briscoe. Behind RBs Terrance Macer, Tony Savage and Tyrone McCaffity, New Town has outscored opponents, 238-19, in its nine wins.

Class 1A South

Forestville (8-3) vs. No. 14 Dunbar (8-3)

When -- Tomorrow, 6 p.m., at Poly

Outlook -- Junior QB Kevin Dickerson (2,232 passing yards, 27 TDs) leads Forestville (Prince George's County) and targets TE Devonte Campbell (nine TD catches) and WR Kevin Dorsey (12 TD receptions). Dunbar RBs Tavon Austin and Maurice Portee have combined for 32 TDs, and the three-time state champions have outscored opponents, 206-28, in six straight wins.
