On Saturday night, Maine drove 72 yards in 12 plays and 1 minute, 47 seconds to escape Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson with a 27-24 win. An announced crowd of of 6,031 could only watch as the Black Bears - who snapped a two-game losing skid to improve to 2-2 overall and 1-0 in the Colonial Athletic Assocation - converted three fourth downs, including a 37-yard scoring strike from sophomore quarterback Dan Collins to sophomore wide receiver Jordan Dunn with 52 seconds remaining in regulation.

The good things never change in Elkridge. Every year, you can always count on friends, family and a house full of vampires. In October, for the eighth year, the Elkridge Adult Athletic Association will put together what might be the best Halloween haunted house in Maryland in an abandoned building in Rockburn Branch Park. To keep that reputation, the planning begins two months ahead of time, costs at least $1,500 and will involve a technical and creative director. "We managed to pull the first one off in six weeks' time," said Dave Grabowski, one of the association's founding members.

Saturday's 31-20 victory over visiting North Carolina Central lifted Towson to a 2-2 record, marking their first time at .500 since the beginning of the season. The win also injected some much-needed confidence into the team, coach Rob Ambrose said Monday during his weekly conference call arranged by the Colonial Athletic Association. “These are college students with college-student problems and injuries,” he said. “Everybody's got problems. So it's about managing them as best we can and moving forward.

The Prince George's County Principals' Association will vote today on a recommendation by the county's athletic association that its high school teams not participate in state playoffs in any sport this academic year. An unexpected budget cut of 37 percent was behind the action taken by the 38-member athletic association. "Last week, 90 percent of our association [21 athletic directors and a representative head coach from each of the 17 varsity sports] voted not to play in the playoffs, to abolish our junior varsity programs and cut swimming and cheerleading," said Parkdale athletic direct Bob Graves, who also serves as president of the Prince George's County Athletic Association.

The Big Ten announced Monday morning that Penn State junior cornerback Trevor Williams, a Calvert Hall graduate, is the conference's Defensive Player of the Week.   Williams, of Baltimore, intercepted two passes in the Nittany Lions' 13-10 victory over Rutgers on Saturday night, becoming the first Penn State player to have multiple interceptions in a game since 2010. He also made five tackles. Williams is one of three former Calvert Hall players in Penn State's secondary. Senior Adrian Amos is the Nittany Lions' starting strong safety and has been an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection the last two seasons.

Towson released its first depth chart of the preseason Friday, and there were a couple notable surprises. The first entails the free safety position. Junior Christian Carpenter, an Aberdeen native and graduate who was a first-team All-Colonial Athletic Association selection last season, is second on the depth chart. Carpenter, who tied then-sophomore strong safety Donnell Lewis for the team lead in interceptions with four and ranked fourth in tackles with 98, has been leapfrogged by redshirt sophomore Jordan Mynatt.

The Towson men's lacrosse team's hopes for a win against a high-profile opponent and some momentum heading into the Colonial Athletic Association tournament fizzled in a span of 4 minutes andd 2seconds Tuesday night. That's how long it took for No. 9 Penn to turn a two-goal lead into a six-goal cushion early in the third quarter of an eventual 15-9 thumping of the Tigers on Tuesday before an announced 446 at Johnny Unitas Stadium. The game was delayed nearly two hours by lightning midway through the third quarter.

The last time the Towson men's basketball team strung together five consecutive wins was the 2000-01 campaign when the Tigers eventually finished 12-17 overall and 7-11 in America East. This year's team is hoping for a different ending after racking up five straight victories, including triumphs over Colonial Athletic Association rivals UNC Wilmington, Drexel and the College of Charleston. Coach Pat Skerry said he fully recognizes the difficulty of collecting wins in the league. “It's just the most competitive conference in the country when it comes to the percentage of close games,” he said Tuesday morning during a conference call arranged by the CAA. “The players are aware of that, and we've told them that.

The Towson football team's bid for a third straight Colonial Athletic Association title fell short, but enduring that conference has the team feeling confident about its chances in the Football Championship Subdivision tournament. The Tigers compiled a 10-2 overall record and a 6-2 league mark, and although they ended up trailing Maine (10-2, 7-1), they were awarded the No. 7 seed by the NCAA selection committee. They will play host to Fordham (12-1) Saturday at 1 p.m. at Johnny Unitas Stadium.

The Towson football team has scored 46 of 51 touchdowns via its offense and special teams, which means that those units are averaging a healthy 5.1 touchdowns this fall. That also means that the defense has scored five touchdowns. The Tigers (8-1 overall and 4-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association) demonstrated their proficiency for converting turnovers into touchdowns in last Saturday's 48-32 victory over Richmond. Sophomore free safety Christian Carpenter returned an interception 34 yards for a score in the second quarter.

The Washington Catholic Athletic Conference this fall could become the first major Baltimore-Washington private or public high school governing body to specifically ban steroid use. The WCAC, composed of 12 schools from Maryland, Virginia and Washington, discussed steroids among its principals and athletic directors in an April 13 meeting. It will do so again during a principals meeting in June and a principals and athletic directors meeting in September before "coming up with a statement" prohibiting steroid use, league commissioner Bob Hardage said yesterday.

The Towson football team's bid for at least a share of what would be the program's third Colonial Athletic Association title would appear to be on the right path with Saturday's game against an underperforming Richmond squad. But that is not the approach that the Tigers (7-1 overall and 3-1 in the conference) are taking. Yes, the Spiders - who have won three league championships, including a share of last year's crown - are 2-5 overall and 0-3 in the CAA, but all five of those losses have occurred by a combined 20 points.

In the midst of a two-game losing skid, and with his Towson women's soccer team on the outside looking in, coach Greg Paynter would not be faulted if he was anxious about the program's hopes of qualifying for the Colonial Athletic Association tournament. But after playing nine of their first 16 games on the road, the Tigers (7-8-1, 2-4 CAA) will conclude their season with three games at home. More importantly, Paynter said he senses a group of players brimming with confidence. “I think we've been battle-tested this season,” he said Tuesday afternoon.
