No. 3 Arch. Spalding @ Annapolis Area Christian School
WHEN -- Tonight, 5.30 p.m.
OUTLOOK -- This is a matchup of last year's Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference champion (Archbishop Spalding) and B Conference winner (Annapolis Area Christian). The visiting Cavaliers (2-0) have won their first two games, including a 3-1 decision over South River. Kelly Galligan, Andrea Catucci and Stephanie Howard have led Spalding. The Eagles (1-1) have gotten solid play from Amy Crout, Theresa Dark and Kate Miller.
No. 9 Old Mill @ No. 8 Broadneck
WHEN -- Friday, 6.30 p.m.
OUTLOOK -- The host Bruins, defending county and 4A Class East regional champions, can't afford another loss this early. Broadneck (0-1) lost a wild 34-28 decision at No. 5 Arundel on Friday. The Patriots, who opened with a 23-8 win at Severna Park, took a 16-3 victory over the Bruins in the regular season last year, but lost to them, 28-7, in the 4A East regional final. Junior quarterback Grant Enders threw for 169 yards and two scores in the Patriots' opener, while their defense had six sacks, including three by lineman Nigel Pierce. Like Severna Park, Broadneck also runs the triple-option, and its junior quarterback, Kyle Colleran, can expect to be chased intensely.
Bethesda-Chevy Chase @ No. 1 Severna Park
WHEN -- Saturday, 2:45 p.m.

OUTLOOK -- In one of the state's top field hockey rivalries, the Falcons will play the Barons of Montgomery County at Roland Park Country's annual Sally Nyborg Invitational Tournament, being held at Severna Park while the Reds' fields are being converted to artificial turf. Severna Park and the Barons have staged some classic state tournament games. Hayley Rausch, Allison Behringer and Kaylee Pohlmeyer lead the Falcons, while the Barons are in a rebuilding season.
