Baseball * Over-30 men -- A week after dropping their second game of the season, the Columbia Cardinals got back on the winning track Sunday in the Howard County Masters Baseball League.

And they used the long ball to get there.

John Canterna and Daryll Jefferson each homered twice, combining to drive in nine runs as the Cardinals defeated the

Baltimore Bees, 10-5, at Rockburn Branch Park.

Canterna had six RBI with a two-run homer, three-run homer and an RBI single. Jefferson drove in three more with a two-run homer and a bases-empty shot.

On the mound, Mike Briel picked up his first win for Columbia (10-2), allowing an unearned run in five innings of relief.

The Bees were led on offense by John Punot (2-for-4, two-run homer) and Joe Lauder (bases-empty homer).

The Cardinals go for their 11th win tomorrow night at Cedar Lane Park against Little Caesars.

Youth basketball 8-9 boys -- Would a rose smell as sweet by any other name?

That may be what some are saying about the Junior Sonics of The Supreme Sports Club Basketball League.

Prior to their game on Sunday, the Sonics voted to change their name to the Junior Spurs, in a move designed to heighten their resemblance to the NBA team with similar black uniforms.

The result?

Much the same -- the team recorded its third win in as many weeks.

This time, the victims were the Junior Suns, who fell, 23-20. Kelly Southerland and Philip Boccuzzi each scored eight points to lead the Spurs.

Anthony Gaither scored a game-high 12 points and Daniel Baron

added eight to pace the Suns (1-2).

In the other game, the Junior Knicks defeated the Junior Bulls, 8-7.

Rashida Walcott had six points to pace the Knicks (1-2) and Brian Thomas scored four to lead the Bulls (1-2).

10-12 boys -- The Hoyas remained perfect in Supreme Sports Club play on Sunday, defeating the Wolverines, 34-22.

Kevin Chrapathy scored a game-high 15 points and Garth DeAngelis added 11 to lead the Hoyas (3-0). Wintley Phipps had 10 points to pace the Wolverines (2-1).

In another game, the Lobos picked up their first win, outlasting the Terps, 35-34.

Todd Yasbin scored a game-high 18 points to lead the Lobos (1-2). Ryan Howard (17 points) and Eliot Greene (15) led the

Terps (0-3).

13-15 boys -- It was a tale of two halves for the Spurs of The Supreme Sports Club on Sunday.

After playing the Magic to a 13-13 tie at halftime, the Spurs outscored their opponents 42-18 in the second half en route to a 55-31 victory.

Nick Green scored a game-high 21 points and Donald Wallace II scored 14 to lead the Spurs (3-0). Jeff Johnson scored nine to lead the Magic (0-3).

In the other game of the week, the Bulls defeated the Warriors, 44-40. Keilan Matthews led a balanced Bulls scoring attack with 12 points, and Chris Ralph and Carl Jackson scored 11 and 10, respectively.

The Bulls improved to 2-1.

Tari Mitchell led the Warriors (1-2) with 16 points.


After three weeks of play in the Sports Palace Men's Tuesday Night League, NFC remains in the lead with a 3-0 record.

The only other team in the five-team league to have won a game is the Bundes at 2-1. Other teams are the Arsenol (0-1), the Maggots (0-1) and the Hammers (0-2).
