THE BALTIMORE SUN

Today

Century (0-3) at North Carroll (1-2)

Time: 6 p.m.

Outlook: After opening the season against two ranked teams, North Carroll will be looking for its second straight win against a program in its infancy. A week ago, the Panthers beat first-year Winters Mill, 14-0. Century, in its second season at the varsity level, has yet to score more than a touchdown.

No. 13 S. Carroll (2-1) at Winters Mill (0-3)

Time: 6 p.m.

Outlook: South Carroll hopes to rebound after last week's blowout loss to Linganore. The bigger, experienced Cavaliers shredded county opponents Westminster and North Carroll in their first two games, and look to get senior QB T.J. Swanson (558 passing yards, 140 rushing yards, seven total TDs) back on track. RB Joe Taylor leads the first-year Falcons with 116 rushing yards.

Kenwood (2-1) vs. No. 10 Woodlawn(2-1)

Time: 7 p.m.

Site: Catonsville High

Outlook: In this Baltimore County 4A-3A League matchup, one of the league's premier running backs, Terrell Walston of Kenwood (0-0 county), will have to deal with second-team All-Metro OL-DL Scott Burley of Woodlawn (1-0 county). Woodlawn is coming off a 35-0 rout of Catonsville, and Kenwood, a 42-13 loss to No. 7 Eastern Tech.

Parkville (3-0) at Perry Hall (3-0)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: This battle of unbeaten Baltimore County 4A-3A League teams should separate the pretender from the contender. Parkville won, 29-12, over Pikesville, which Perry Hall edged, 7-6.

Dulaney (2-1) vs. Dundalk (2-1)

Time: 7 p.m.

Site: CCBC-Dundalk

Outlook: Ranked No. 12 in the preseason before losing to Bel Air, defending league co-champ Dundalk (2-0 county) enters this Baltimore County 4A-3A League matchup having won two straight games by a combined 49-8. Dulaney (2-0 county) rebounded from a 19-0 loss to No. 2 Hereford with a 29-8 win over Towson.

No. 12 F.S. Key (3-0) at Middletown (0-3)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Middletown, a Class 2A state finalist last season, has fallen on hard times this fall but is still dangerous. Francis Scott Key, however, has averaged nearly 32 points a game in getting off to a perfect start. Eagles RB Josh Rutter and RB Layton Hersh have shredded defenses for 910 yards and 13 rushing TDs.

Linganore (3-0) at Liberty (2-1)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Linganore comes to Eldersburg after last week's 34-6 rout of No. 13 South Carroll, in which RB Matt Castor and RB Eric Yerofshefsky helped the Lancers pile up 378 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. The Lions, however, are off to a strong start, thanks mainly to the passing of Matt Anuszewski (45-for-79, 476 yards, four TD throws) and the running of Ryan Stecher (7.3 yards a carry, two TDs).

Frederick (1-2) at Westminster (0-3)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: The Owls will again try for their first win after nearly knocking off No. 12 Francis Scott Key a week ago. TB Brandon Costley (43 carries, 257 yards) ran for 123 yards and a touchdown in that game. Frederick is coming off a 45-13 loss to powerful North Hagerstown. Westminster defeated the Cadets, 35-27, last year.

No. 3 Old Mill (3-0) at S. River (1-2)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Patriots struggled a bit in Wednesday's 25-7 victory over winless Northeast, leading 14-7 at the half, but their defense came through to save the night. The Seahawks scored 36 points and lost by eight to Chesapeake-AA. To keep it going, the Pats have to take charge early and establish their running game behind RB Devin Bradley.

No. 6 Broadneck (3-0) at Meade (0-3)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: After taking a 17-14 squeaker on a controversial missed field goal at Arundel, the Bruins visit Fort Meade to face a Mustangs team that returned several academically ineligible players last week and is in desperate need of a win.

Arundel (2-1) at Annapolis (2-1)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Al Laramore Field is the site for two teams coming off tough but contrasting losses, Arundel by 17-14 to Broadneck and Annapolis by 21-0 to Severna Park. The host Panthers were vulnerable to the pass in the Severna Park loss and have to face standout Wildcats QB Bobby Schram.

Severna Park (2-1) at Northeast (0-3)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Things don't get easier for the host Eagles, who have faced the superb Southern-AA and Old Mill defenses back-to-back and tonight meet the quick, hard-hitting Falcons crew led by LBs Andrew Ferris, Alex Kin and Ryan Budka.

Southern-AA (3-0) at Glen Burnie (1-2)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The host Gophers are feeling pretty good after notching their first win last week over Meade, but the Bulldogs, 48-0 victors over North County, have a stellar running attack with Bobby Atwell and A.J. Lee.

N. County (0-3) at Chesapeake-AA (1-2)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Outscored 135-6 in their first three games, the visiting Knights will likely spend the night chasing the Cougars' Gary Townes and suffer their 15th straight loss while rookie coach Jim Simms gets his second win.
