Dundalk (2-1)

at No. 12 Milford Mill (3-0)

When: 4 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Owls (1-1 league) lost badly at home to rival Eastern Tech and will refocus against defending Baltimore County 3A-4A champ Milford Mill (2-0 league). The Millers' WR Dayron Arnold caught one of his five passes for a score in last weekend's 30-0 rout of Parkville, and DB Lamar Jones had an INT as part of a defense that has two shutouts. Dundalk racked up nearly 260 yards on the ground behind a massive line last week but could not punch the ball in and made too many errors defensively.

Lansdowne (3-0)

vs. Western Tech (2-1)

When: 7 p.m. at CCBC-Catonsville

Outlook: The Lansdowne Vikings (2-0 in Baltimore County 1A-2A) have blown out their three opponents by a combined 93-6, including an 18-6 win over an Owings Mills squad that defeated county 3A-4A stalwart Parkville. The Vikings take on a Wolverines squad that is coming off a 31-8 rout of Loch Raven and which is led by the area's No. 1 football recruit, RB-DB Domonique Foxworth, who has six touchdowns this season. Western Tech is 1-1, having lost, 14-6, to Catonsville.

Owings Mills (2-1)

at Catonsville (2-1)

When: 7 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Eagles (1-1 in county 1A-2A) rebounded from an 18-6 loss to Lansdowne with a 21-0 shutout of county league rival Franklin. Next up for the Eagles of coach Randy Pentz is a Comets squad that dropped to 1-1 in the league after absorbing a 52-6 loss at 11th-ranked, defending county champ Hereford. RB Chris Wilson (6-0, 235) and RB Josh Desmond (6-0, 215) lead the Comets, having combined for 30 points.


St. Mary's (3-0)

at St. Paul's (1-1)

When: 3:30 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Saints enter this Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference Silver Division opener led by David Donohue and Geoff Christhilf, who have scored 30, and, 12 points, respectively. St. Mary's has dropped from the A to the B Conference and is a strong contender for the crown. St. Paul's, a 21-20 victor over A Conference power Loyola, has had a week off since its 41-0 loss to No. 1 Gilman. Whether the Crusaders can pull off a win at home depends on the play of QB Brenden Gill and WR Walter Hill.

Fallston (2-1)

at Joppatowne (3-0)

When: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Defending Harford County champ Fallston is perhaps the league's hottest team. But the Mariners have polished off their first three opponents by a combined 88-3 with two shutouts. Fallston shut out Centennial, 16-0, stumbled against Elkton, 26-7, and won a track meet against Northeast-AA, 49-28.


Loyola (2-1)

at Gonzaga (D.C.) (3-1)

When: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Loyola has won two straight games since a season-opening loss to St. Paul's, hammering Westminster of Carroll County, 35-14, and John Carroll of Harford County, 29-7. But it gets a lot more difficult against Washington-area power Gonzaga, as coach Joe Brune goes after career win No. 203. Gonzaga has a three-pronged offensive backfield.
