Whitman at Bethesda-Chevy Chase

Today, 6:30 p.m.

Outlook: Whitman (2-3) revived its playoff hopes with a 21-20 win over Northwest last week, during which FB Pat Lazear ran for three touchdowns and blocked an extra point attempt. Bethesda-Chevy Chase (4-1) received another strong performance from RB Coffi Amouzou (30 carries, 174 yards) in a win over Einstein. Amouzou has more than 100 yards rushing in every game this season.


Chopticon (4-1) at Northern (4-1)

Today, 7 p.m.

Outlook: Four days after its first loss, 16-13, at Thomas Stone, Chopticon faces well-rested Northern, which has allowed six points over the past 13 quarters. Fully recovered from a shoulder injury, Northern junior A.J. Brown has rushed for 485 yards and eight touchdowns the past three weeks.


No. 20 Old Mill at Severna Park

Today, 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Old Mill RB Ryan Callahan rushed for a career-high 341 yards last season during a 30-28 victory for the Patriots (5-0), and should have another big workload tonight. Severna Park has won four straight since losing its opener to Calvert Hall, and QB Greg Zingler has thrived in the Falcons' triple-option offense, rushing for 97 yards and two touchdowns in a win over North County last week.


No. 7 Douglass at

No. 14 Eleanor Roosevelt

Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

Outlook: Having already beaten the league's other top teams, Douglass can cement its place atop the league and position itself for home-field advantage with a victory. Key matchup could be Eagles WR Marcus Barnett against Roosevelt CB Travon Bellamy.


Potomac (Md.) at

No. 5 Gwynn Park

Tomorrow, 2 p.m.

Outlook: A scheduling quirk prevented these teams from playing the past two seasons. Maryland 2A defending champion Potomac had an 18-game winning streak end last week against Friendly. This week, the Wolverines will try to end the Yellow Jackets' 16-game regular season winning streak.
