Ravens rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley is learning quickly that the retaliator is the one who typically gets caught in NFL altercations. Blocked after the whistle had blown by Cleveland Browns center Alex Mack, Mosley slugged the Pro Bowl blocker with a left hook that sent Mack flailing to the ground. Mosley was flagged for unnecessary roughness while Mack wasn't penalized. Now, Mosley is bracing for a fine from the league office. The first-round draft pick from Alabama was previously fined $8,268 for a late hit on Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard in his first NFL game.

As Ocean City braces for Senior Week, the annual migration of graduating high school students to the beaches, thousands more young partyers are expected to join them. A loosely organized College Takeover Beach Week also starts this weekend, an event that surprised Virginia Beach last year when an influx of up to 40,000 visitors was accompanied by a rise in cases of violence and disorderly behavior. Ocean City officials say they won't be caught off-guard and have prepared for both Senior Week and the "takeover" with increased patrols and new boardwalk surveillance cameras that will be monitored in real time.

As nonprofits across the state brace for what could be deep cuts in federal funding and the possibility of a government shutdown, many are already taking steps to trim services, staff and hours. The Harford Community Action Agency has instituted a 20 percent reduction in staff hours that will affect its aid programs for needy families, and it will be closed on Fridays for the foreseeable future. The 23 employees at the Edgewood-based agency, which assisted more than 7,000 families last year, are now working a four-day week, all while requests for assistance are on the increase.

TORONTO - Orioles shortstop Mike Bordick is prepared to remove the brace from his right leg and accelerate the rehabilitation program he has been on since fracturing his kneecap exactly three weeks ago. After playing catch again with Tim Bishop, the club's strength and conditioning coach, Bordick stood at his locker with sweat rolling down his face. The smile said every drop was worth it. "It feels good, a lot better," he said. "There's still a little bit - very little - soreness, but it feels good."

On any warm weekend, the Chesapeake Bay from Havre de Grace to Thomas Point Light is an undulating mass of boats of all shapes and sizes. But this weekend and next, federal and state officials are bracing for an armada of sailboats, fishing boats and cabin cruisers - more vessels than any time in recent memory - all jockeying for position. In an unusual recreational confluence, the visit of the Volvo Ocean Race coincides with another sailboat race, the most popular segment of the striped bass season and the Bay Bridge Walk.

In a move that will surprise no one, Loyola Maryland defenseman Joe Fletcher has spent a considerable amount of time watching film of Albany attackman Lyle Thompson, and the Greyhounds senior knows that the tape doesn't lie. He also knows that the tape isn't entirely truthful. It can't capture the full scope of trying to shadow the Great Danes junior, who has already tied UMBC attackman Steve Marohl's single-season NCAA record of 114 points. “That's what makes him, him,” Fletcher said Wednesday afternoon.

Last season, Towson stumbled its way to a 4-5 record through the non-Colonial Athletic Association portion of its schedule before righting the ship and winning the league tournament to qualify for the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2007. This year, the Tigers are in a vastly different - and stronger - position. No. 20 Towson is 6-2, which is the program's best start since 2001, when that squad opened the season with 10 wins in 12 games. No one is equating what the current group is doing with that 2001 team, but coach Shawn Nadelen said the positive mark is an encouraging sign for the Tigers.

Boo Corrigan is torn. His parents Gene and Lena were born and raised in Baltimore, and the younger Corrigan started a sports marketing company in the city. But as the athletic director for the United States Military Academy, Corrigan is understandably wary about the Army-Navy football game returning to Charm City for 2014 and 2016. "I feel most for our cadets who have to get up that morning and take an eight-hour bus ride down," Corrigan said. "They're leaving in the military term of oh-dark-thirty to get down to Baltimore.

Although nose tackle Haloti Ngata is listed as questionable on the injury report, Harbaugh said the Pro Bowl defensive lineman is set to play Sunday. Ngata returned to practice Friday on a limited basis and appeared to have his normal mobility after being sidelined the previous two days. "He had little tweaks and strains and things like that, so we gave him a couple days," Harbaugh said. "He looked good, so he's going to play. He should be fine. " Besides Ngata, 10 other Ravens are questionable.

Republicans in the House of Representatives passed a government funding bill early Sunday that would delay the nation's health care law for one year — inching federal agencies closer to a shutdown that analysts predict would damage Maryland's economy. During a rare weekend session, GOP lawmakers advanced a series of bills to pay for government operations that would also put President Barack Obama's signature health care law on hold until 2015. The House was set to approve a separate bill to fund the military in the event of a shutdown.

UMBC's Pete Caringi III and Loyola's Larry Ndjock can enjoy a certain status as being among the top three in Division I men's soccer in scoring goals. Caringi, a senior, is tied with Delaware freshman midfielder Guillermo Delgado for the national lead in goals (eight), while Ndjock, a sophomore, is tied with Cal State Northridge junior forward Sagi Lev-Ari with seven goals each. The flipside, however, is that both Caringi and Ndjock are known commodities in the soccer community, and opposing defenses will spend a fair amount of time studying the forwards' strengths and weaknesses.

Col. Brian Foley has taken command of Fort Meade at a challenging time for the U.S. military. With the end of the war in Iraq in 2011 and the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan next year, growth in defense spending was already expected to taper. Then came the sequester, the across-the-board cuts that led the Pentagon to furlough civilian employees over the summer. Fort Meade grew rapidly in the 2005 round of the base realignment known as BRAC to became the third-largest base in the Army.

Rochester's offense has been buoyed by a pair of rookie midfielders in David Lawson and John Ranagan (Johns Hopkins)
