After a slow start on offense in Saturday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference football championship, Archbishop Spalding wanted a big second-half play to break through against Boys' Latin. The No. 14 Cavaliers got a handful of them. Among the highlights - Ryan Cochrane's 61-yard run that set up a touchdown by Scott Sharik and Zach Waller's 38-yard touchdown run off a fumble recovery. Those and several more big defensive plays fueled a 12-0 victory that avenged their only regular-season loss and spoiled the No. 8 Lakers' bid for a perfect record before a standing-room-only crowd at Mount St. Joseph.

The long diagonal run from St. Paul's senior Nate Hall started before midfield and didn't end until he got past the 18-yard mark. Most times, such an effort would finish with a goal from the All-Metro striker, but circumstances were much different this time: The Crusaders had been caught flat-footed against McDonogh earlier this season, and the No. 1 Eagles were set to cash in on a quick counter. Hall sprinted back to the defensive third to disrupt that plan. Supplying offense is Hall's primary role for No. 5 St. Paul's (7-2-1)

Despite losing to St. John's in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association C Conference semifinals the past two seasons, St. Vincent Pallotti's boys lacrosse team is eager for a new challenge in the B Conference. The Panthers, who went 4-13 in their last season in the B conference in 2011, finished 13-4 the past two seasons and won their conference division. Fourth-year coach Kris Weaver, however, thinks his young team is ready for the tougher B conference after "teaching these guys how to win" in the C conference.

Quarterback Peter Athens' fourth touchdown pass of the night, a 10-yarder to Dan Rogers with 8:42 remaining, gave St. Mary's a 26-20 victory over Archbishop Spalding for the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference championship last night at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium. It was the first appearance in the B Conference final for the Saints (8-3), while the Cavaliers (7-4) were going for their third consecutive crown. But they were held scoreless by the Marlon Johnson-led defense in the second half after holding a 20-12 halftime lead.

The presence of former Orioles shortstop Mike Bordick as a coach in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference has given it credibility, but he is the first to say that he is not the main reason for the perceived higher level of play in the league. "Just because I played with the Orioles doesn't mean I would come into the league and re-invent the wheel," said Bordick, who is in his second season as coach at Boys' Latin. "There are some really good players in this league, and it makes for great competition.

John Carroll rolled past St. Vincent Pallotti, 15-9, 15-1, 15-8, yesterday to win the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference volleyball title at Villa Julie. Setter Margaret Luppino made the defensive play of the match, a rally-saving dig in a third-game run that dug the Patriots out of a 7-1 hole and built their lead to 10-3. "Defense has been a huge factor," said Kayani Turner, a junior. "Without defense, you can't win volleyball games." Turner, a 6-foot-1 outside hitter, kicked off the run with a kill, but the momentum really swung the Patriots' way after Luppino dove after a ball headed out of bounds and kept it in play.

Last week's 42-22 rout by three-time Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B football champion McDonogh over A Conference power Mount St. Joseph renewed the call for the Eagles to move up to the A -- traditionally the stronger of the two leagues. McDonogh vacated the upper conference in 1995, after going 0-8. And its officials, despite past urgings of rivals in both conferences, had cited size and athletic disadvantages as reasons for resisting a return. But now, the Eagles (2-0)

The executive committee of the Maryland Scholastic Hockey League voted last week on a format for the upcoming playoffs. As in the past, the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference and the area's public high school teams will participate. Unlike last season, however, the MIAA B Conference champion also will earn a berth. "I think it's a great thing to have them," said MSHL commissioner Don Gensler of the B Conference teams. "It shows that we're all one big family. Now instead of saying they're the best team in a particular conference, they'll get a chance to show that they're one of the best in the state."

The regular season came to a close with some terrific high school football in the MIAA and the public schools over the weekend. McDonogh polished off a dominating season in the A Conference and St. Paul's won a thriller in the final seconds of the B Conference final.

McDonogh sophomore defender Michael DeShields had a rare opportunity he couldn't pass up in the closing seconds of Sunday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship game against St. Paul's. With time winding down in regulation and the No. 1 Eagles still needing a goal to secure the program's seventh league championship and an unprecedented unbeaten season, he worked his way to the middle of the penalty area for a corner kick. Senior midfielder George Campbell's service from the left corner came right to DeShields, whose emphatic header with 10 seconds on the clock made him an instant hero.
