The Baltimore Baseball Club, representing the Howard County Adult League, lost to the eventual champion, San Diego, in the semifinal round of the Men's Senior Baseball League World Series in Tempe, Ariz.

The team went 5-1 in the American Over-40 Division, winning it for the second straight year. The BBC then defeated defending national champion Chicago North, 5-1, in the quarterfinal round of the playoffs behind the pitching of Tom "Bear" Baron and timely hitting of Warren Scudder and Kevin Nashold.

The week of competition was highlighted by outstanding team hitting, led by Bob Maxey, Ferris Allen, Ralph Leasure, Dale Jorgenson and Scudder. Paul Stea, Mark Thome and Steve Garland delivered game-winning hits for the team, as well.

Defensively, Leasure, at shortstop, Paul Valove, at catcher, Peter Kirk, at third base and outfielders Dan Konick and Nashold all played key roles. On the mound, Baron won three games, Andy DeBenedictis, two, and Dave Prutting, one. Joe Lomoscola also pitched well.


* 11-13 -- The Columbia Bulldogs continued to roll in the Pop Warner Mid-Atlantic Regional Playoffs Saturday with a 36-30 win over host Monroe, N.J.

Running back Fardan Carter led the way, gaining over 300 yards rushing and scoring five touchdowns. He set the tone early, breaking a 65-yard touchdown run on Columbia's first play from scrimmage. The Bulldogs led 36-14 at the half.

Safety Josh Zilmer and middle linebacker Dain Lewis were big contributors on defense. Zilmer, as the last line of defense, made several touchdown-saving tackles in the secondary. Lewis did most of his damage in the Wolverines' backfield, coming up with a number of tackles and sacking the quarterback twice.

Columbia (11-0-1) is the only Maryland team remaining in the playoffs. The Bulldogs advance to Saturday's Mid-Atlantic final in Rockland, N.Y.

Girls Soccer

* 9-year-olds -- The Centennial Blue Bombers scored their 17th consecutive win last week with a 2-1 victory in their Soccer Association of Columbia season finale.

Allison Broglie scored twice in the final five minutes for the Bombers, who also had strong offensive play from Ashley Evans, Amy Shilling and Erin Nichols at halfback.

Defensively, fullback Emily Dutch and goalkeeper Melissa Boone led the way.

* 12-13 -- With a forfeit victory over Wilde Choice No. 2 last weekend, Centennial No. 2 wrapped up first place in the Soccer Association of Columbia.

Centennial No. 2 (7-0-1), finished with 15 points, two ahead of second-place King's Contrivance No. 2. Hickory Ridge and Centennial No. 1 tied for third in the 10-team league at 4-1-3 for 11 points.

Centennial moved up in the standings by defeating Long Reach, 2-0, on goals from Devon Neuworth and Kristen Dinisic. Hickory Ridge, meanwhile, played to a scoreless tie with King's Contrivance.

Boys Soccer

* 12-13 -- The final results in the Soccer Association of Columbia's A Division: Hickory Ridge (5-1-1) won the five-team division by a point over King's Contrivance Nos. 1 and 2, both 4-1-2 with 10 points. Centennial No. 1 was fourth and Centennial No. 2 rounded out the standings.

David Mast of Baltimore and Kelly Margolis of Lutherville were the big winners last weekend at the annual Toys for Tots Tennis Tournament at the Circle D club in Woodbine.

Mast took the men's singles division with a 6-1, 6-0, win over Avery Harwell of Washington, while Margolis defeated Enid Weber of Annandale, Va., 6-1, 6-0, to take the women's crown.
