* 13-15 boys -- Sunday's game at The Supreme Sports Club may have been only their second of the young season, but the Spurs and Warriors displayed nothing short of midseason form in a match with possible postseason implications.

The club's only undefeated teams engaged in a battle that went down to the wire before a missed layup helped the Spurs escape with a 42-41 victory.

The bulk of the action occurred in the paint, as Spurs forward Donald Wallace II (14 points) and Warriors center Tari Mitchell (14 points) battled for inside position.

Nick Green also scored nine points for the Spurs (2-0) and Troy Hines added 14 for the Warriors (1-1).

In the other game of the week, the Bulls picked up their first victory with a 68-45 win over the Magic.

Carl Jackson scored a game-high 24 points, Keilan Mathews added 14 and James Dulaney had 10 for the Bulls (1-1). Jeff Johnson scored 16 to lead the Magic (0-2).

* 10-12 boys -- Wintley Phipps II scored 13 points and Will Gagne added eight as the Wolverines improved to 2-0, edging the Tar Heels, 31-30, Sunday at The Supreme Sports Club. Thomas Browne had 13 points to lead the Tar Heels (0-2).

In another game, the Hoyas also improved to 2-0 with a 24-23 win over the Lobos.

Trevor Randall scored nine and Garth De Angelis eight for the victors, while Todd Yasbin scored 13 to lead the Lobos (0-2).

The Terps improved to 1-1 with a forfeit win over the Hurricanes (1-1).

* 8-9 boys -- Lopsided victories were the order of the day Sunday in The Supreme Sports Club Basketball League.

The Junior Suns improved to 1-1 with a 28-2 win over the Junior Knicks. Anthony Gaither scored eight points and Daniel Baron added six for the Suns. Wylie Gunn had the only two points for the Knicks (0-2).

In the other game, the Junior Sonics defeated the Junior Bulls, 30-8. Phillip Boccuzzi scored a game-high 12 points to lead the Sonics (2-0). Brian Thomas scored four to lead the Bulls (1-1).

Adult softball

Over-30 men -- After being defeated by the Columbia Cardinals in two previous meetings, the Gold Team turned the tables on their county rivals, routing the Cardinals, 20-1, Sunday in Howard County Masters League action at Rockburn Branch Park.

Moreno Carrasco led the hitting attack for the Gold team, going 5-for-7 with four RBI. Other big hitters for the victors were John Turney (grand slam), Larry Thompson (4-for-6, double and homer) and Jim Mouder, Tim O'Brien and Bill Owens (each with three hits).

Jeff Patton picked up the win, pitching three scoreless innings.

The Cardinals picked up their only run on Henry Wong's single in the fourth inning.

The loss dropped Columbia (9-2) a half-game out of first place behind Bethany Water Sports (9-1).

The Cardinals play the Baltimore Bees on Sunday at Rockburn Branch Park.

Swimming

The Hammond Park Stingrays closed out their second straight undefeated season last weekend with a 264-224 win over the Springdale Stars.

Twelve-year-old Kristin Trinkaus led the Stingrays, setting a pool record with a 30.20-second mark in the 11- 12-year-old 50-meter freestyle.

On the boys side, a sweep in the 11-12 50 backstroke, and the performance of first-year swimmer Jay Morgan in the 9-10 boys 200 relay contributed to the win.

Other top performers for Hammond Park were Brian Cassella, Heather Charles, Bryan Copperthite and Jill Nowacek, all of whom were named "Stingrays of the Week."

The team also said goodbye to graduating seniors Randy Bishop, Alex Hill and Bobby Greiner.

Bishop, a 1991 Amateur Athletic Union award winner in aquatics, began swimming with the Stingrays at age 7. Recently named a Francis Scott Key scholar, Bishop will attend the University of Maryland in the fall.

Hill, a team member since 1985, recently received the rank of Eagle Scout, and will also be attending Maryland.

Greiner, a five-year member of the team, is a multi-talented athlete who participated in several sports while in high school. He will attend North Carolina State in the fall.
