The Chesapeake Bay Chiefs Squirt A ice hockey team recently returned from the North American Silver Stick Championships in Sarnia, Ontario.

The Chiefs earned the right to compete in Canada by winning the East Regional Championships earlier this season in Columbia. At the Silver Stick tournament, the Chiefs finished second in their division and tied for third overall with the host team from Sarnia.

Chesapeake's victory marked the first time a Maryland team has won a game at the Silver Stick Championships. The Chiefs won two of three games and would have reached the finals if the team from Indiana would have defeated the team from Gross Point, Mich.

The Chiefs beat Columbus, Ind., 4-3, and Benoit, Wisc., 4-3, before dropping another 4-3 decision to Gross Point.

Forwards Jimmy Morrison, Andy Metzger, John James, Mike Masten, Kevin Reinecke and Mike Smith provided the offense, and defenders Chris Brune, Michael Strickland, Brian Brady and Tommy Zlockie provided solid front-line defense for goalies John Rice and Steve Smith.

The Buccaneers will take on the Jessup-Province Youth Organization at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Marley Middle.

* 14-and-under boys -- The Severna Park Green Hornets boys basketball team improved its record to 10-5 with a pair of victories last week at Crofton Middle School.

Severna Park will try to keep its winning streak alive when it takes on the undefeated Peninsula Athletic League at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Crofton Middle.

* 10-and-under boys -- Chris Sparks' last-second shot helped Crofton Red defeat UYC, 19-18, last Saturday at Southern High in Harwood.

It was the first win of the year for Crofton. Red trailed 6-5 at the half but rallied for eight points in the fourth quarter.

Sparks, whose game-winner came with two seconds remaining,

led all scorers with eight points and 11 rebounds. Nick Viola added six points and 13 rebounds and Aaron Shoots and David Erculiani each had two points.

Alex Boyd rounded out the scoring for the winners with one point. Playing well defensively for Crofton were Alex Vargo (three assists and four rebounds) and Ryan Mona.

"It was a great win and one we really needed," said Crofton coach Jay Vargo. "The kids have been working really hard and they finally got rewarded for their hard work. Now, their confidence is really soaring and they're starting to believe in themselves."

Crofton (1-2) will try to maintain it swinning ways when it takes on Galesville at 4 p.m. Saturday at Southern High School.
