When: Saturday, 1 p.m.
Coaches: Rich Holzer, Meade; Ed Shields, Suitland
Outlook: In their second state semifinal in two years, the Mustangs face a Prince George's County team that has allowed only eight points a game and held nine opponents to 7 points or fewer. In nearly all of their games, the Mustangs have had a speed advantage but the Rams' offense has great speed, with five players scoring more than seven touchdowns. Their offense averages 34.3 points per game, but they had a close call last week, beating DuVal, 18-17, in the regional final. Rams quarterback Wesley Wolfork has thrown for 2,211 yards and 25 touchdowns. The Mustangs, who are battle-tested after a tough Anne Arundel County race, have run well all season behind a solid line. Kyle Evans (pictured) leads the way with 1,909 yards and 16 touchdowns while quarterback DJ Pate has thrown for 1,226 yards and 17 touchdowns. The Mustangs are looking for their first state title. The Rams won in 2004 and 2005.
