Games To Watch

October 31, 2007|By PAT O'MALLEY


South River @ North County

WHEN -- Friday, 6.30 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- Going into Monday's makeup games, the host Knights (4-3) held fourth place in the Class 4A East region, with Severna Park (4-3) close behind (the top four in each region qualify for the playoffs). South River (3-4) was sixth. A loss will eliminate the Seahawks. Arundel (7-0), Old Mill (6-1) and Broadneck (5-2) figure to clinch the top three spots in 4A East.

Chesapeake @ Southern

WHEN -- Friday, 6.30 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- The host Bulldogs (5-2 entering this week) could clinch a playoff berth in the Class 2A South region with a victory at home over the Cougars (2-5). Patuxent of Calvert County and top-ranked River Hill have all but clinched the top two spots in the region, while Southern held third place over Gwynn Park (5-2) of Prince George's County when the week started. Southern, Anne Arundel County's only 2A team, needs good games from QB Zack Hiller, RB Mike Douglas and the Chris Gray-led defense to beat Chesapeake.

St. Paul's vs. St. Mary's

WHEN -- Friday, 7 p.m.

WHERE -- Navy-Marine Corps Stadium

OUTLOOK -- These two teams and Archbishop Spalding are tied for first place in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference at 5-1. There are two games left for each in their quest for a berth in the B Conference final at Towson's Johnny Unitas Stadium on Nov. 16. The loser of this game will likely be out of the running for the championship game. Both of these teams are coming off losses, the visiting Crusaders (5-4) by 35-0 to No. 5 McDonogh of the A Conference, and the Saints (5-3) by 21-19 to Spalding. Coach Mike Clay's Saints need a big game from senior RB Dontra Peters (1,089 yards, 14 TDs) and their defense, led by Marlon Johnson, has to contain QB Brian Taafe.
