Games To Watch



No. 1 St. Paul's @ No. 10 Archbishop Spalding

WHEN -- Friday, 5:15 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- In a rematch of last season's Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship, the host Cavaliers will try to maintain their dominance over the Gators. The Cavaliers won the title in a five-game match, taking the deciding game, 15-10. All-Metro 6-foot-3 hitter Bailey Webster leads the Gators. Kelly Galligan is the go-to player for the Cavaliers.


No. 3 Dunbar @ Poly

WHEN -- Tomorrow, 7 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- It's a City Division I matchup of 6-0 teams with contrasting schedules. Dunbar has beaten two ranked teams in No. 7 Edmondson and then-No. 11 City; three winning teams (4-2 each), including the two mentioned plus Prince George's Gwynn Park; and outscored its opponents 264-36. Poly has not played a ranked team but has beaten two winning teams in Mervo (4-2) and Division II Digital Harbor (5-1), and three of its wins are over 0-6 teams in Samuel Banks, Lake Clifton and Mervo. The Engineers have outscored their foes 192-40, but those opponents are a combined 11-25. Poly running back Lee Reynolds has scored 17 touchdowns and rushed for 887 yards but will be facing a strong Poets defense led by linebackers Keon Redhead and Kenyon Kinard. Meanwhile, the Engineers will be trying to stop the Poets' Tavon Austin, who has scored 16 touchdowns.

No. 1 Loyola vs. Mount St. Joseph

WHEN -- Friday, 7 p.m.

WHERE -- Johns Hopkins

Sparrows Point @ Chesapeake-BC

WHEN -- Saturday, 1 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- The winner of this game likely will win the county Class 1A League. These two teams are the only winning teams among the six in the 1A region, both overall and in the county. The visiting Pointers are 6-0 and 1-0 in the league with Friday's 30-22 victory over Western Tech (1-5, 0-1). The Bayhawks are 5-1 and 1-0, including Saturday's 30-0 rout of Owings Mills (0-6, 0-1).
