Class 3A East semifinal: Atholton @ North Harford

WHEN -- Friday, 7 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- The visiting Raiders, coming off a 48-27 victory over Hammond, earned the fourth seed in the region after a 7-3 regular season. They will be up against the top-seeded Hawks (9-1), who have averaged 26.8 points per game, led by QB Dan Griffin.

Class 2A South semifinal: McDonough @ No. 1 River Hill

WHEN -- Friday, 7 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- The Hawks (10-0) begin their quest for the program's first state championship with a home game against McDonough from Charles County. Junior RB Mike Campanaro and senior linebacker Zach Martin have been the catalysts for the Hawks, who have state title-game experience after reaching last year's Class 3A final. After a three-game losing steak put the Rams at 2-3 midway through the season, they reeled off five straight victories to finish in fourth place in the 13-team Southern Maryland Athletic Conference.

Class 3A East semifinal: Howard @ No. 15 Wilde Lake

WHEN -- Saturday, 1 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- The team's regular-season meeting - a 21-14 Howard triumph - was a tale of two halves. The Wildecats (8-2) took a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, but the Lions (7-3) came back with 21 unanswered points in the second half to win. Senior QB Jeff Kalski led the Lions on a key 13-play, 53-yard drive to start the third quarter - capped by a 10-yard touchdown pass to senior WR Jeff Javier - to begin the rally.
