Hunt lifts Bayhawks in season opener, 13-11
Midfielder Ben Hunt (Severna Park) led the way with five points as the Chesapeake Bayhawks rallied from an early deficit to defeat the host Long Island Lizards, 13-11, on Saturday night in the Major League Lacrosse season opener for both teams. Hunt scored three goals, one of which was a 2-pointer, and dished off an assist as Chesapeake won its opener for the third straight season. Bayhawks midfielders Michael Kimmel (Johns Hopkins, Loyola High) and Steven Brooks scored two goals each. "We really came together as a team tonight and established our identity," said Hunt, who was named Player of the Game. "We have a lot of new faces this season and it was great to see how well we played as a team. Everyone was really unselfish on offense. We moved the ball well and everybody contributed." T.C. DiBartolo, a rookie out of Mount St. Mary's, started in goal for Chesapeake and made 15 saves. "For a rookie starting his first professional game, I thought T.C. did a very good job. He made a huge save at the end to put an end to Long Island's comeback bid," coach Dave Cottle said.

NFL: After drafting their second quarterback in three days, the Washington Redskins released former Raven John Beck, according to multiple reports. The Redskins used the second overall pick of the draft to take Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, whom the team introduced to fans at FedEx Field on Saturday. With the 102nd pick of the draft (the seventh pick of the fourth round), Washington took Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins. It marked the first time the Redskins have taken two quarterbacks in the first four rounds of the draft. In March, the Redskins re-signed veteran Rex Grossman, who started 13 of 16 games last season. Beck, who went 0-3 as a starter last year while throwing four interceptions and only two touchdowns, remained under contract and was owed $1.35 million.
