All season, the Poly boys lacrosse team has prided itself on playing as hard in the fourth quarter as the first, relying on conditioning to stay a step ahead of the competition in Baltimore City. In Friday's first-ever Baltimore City championship game at Northwestern, the Engineers did exactly that once again. With goalie Nicholas Kostas finishing with 22 saves and Malik Embree providing much of the timely offense with three second-half goals, Poly pulled away from Northwestern in the final minutes to capture the crown with an 8-5 win. Poly improves to 10-0 on the season, handing the Wildcats their first loss after 10 wins.

The following letter was sent to: Ken Zorbach, Director of Athletics, Harford County Public Schools and Christopher Hersl, Director of Athletics, Cecil County Public Schools. A copy was provided for publication. Recently, the Harford Tech girl's lacrosse team chose to concede the 2013 UCBAC Championship to C. Milton Wright and noted the disparity between the two divisions in choosing not to play the game. While reasonable people may disagree with Harford Tech's decision, I would suggest that it took some degree of courage and points at a basic flaw in the UCBAC setup.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. - The consensus among fans and analysts heading into Saturday's Federation of International Lacrosse World Championship final between Canada and the United states was that the Americans, dominant all tournament long, were the clear-cut favorites.  Canada, seeking its first gold since 2006, needed to win faceoffs and control possession to keep the ball away from Team USA's stacked offense, which came into the championship game...

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Tonight's NCAA women's basketball championship game is bound to make Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma a tad upset, and not just because his Huskies aren't participating.On Thursday, Auriemma delivered a brief but memorable tirade against the heft that the Southeastern Conference displays in this sport, saying that while the conference is the dominant league, there are other good teams.As if on cue, the SEC placed both finalists, Tennessee and Georgia, in tonight's contest, the second time in the 15 years of the NCAA women's tournament that the title-game participants were from the same conference.

SEATTLE -- He left the court 157 seconds into the game, his sprained right wrist dangling and obviously of no use, its limpness a perfect metaphor for UCLA's suddenly reduced chances.Unable to use Tyus Edney against Arkansas in the NCAA championship game last night, the Bruins needed to play a perfect game, or close to one, to win. They had to have a long list of things go right, no exceptions, or Arkansas would run them out of the Kingdome.It was a daunting proposition. Edney had carried the Bruins to the title game with a run of brilliant performances.

A year ago as the professional indoor soccer championship game approached, Blast officials and fans were fuming. This year they were beaming. Simply put, a change of venue made a world of difference to everyone. Saturday night, when the Blast hosts the Rockford (Ill.) Rampage at 1st Mariner Arena for the National Indoor Soccer League title, the biggest event of the indoor season is finally where they believe it belongs - at the home of the top seed and regular-season champion. That was not the case in 2008 when the Major Indoor Soccer League held its finale in Milwaukee (which had won a bidding process)

Many times after a Ravens game, I have had discussions with my son in which he complained about how an official's call cost them the victory. My answer to him always is that, regardless of the correctness of the call, the Ravens were culpable: They shouldn't have put themselves in a position where one referee's decision could tilt the game in their opponents' favor. And that's sort of my position on whether teams other than Florida and Oklahoma should be considered for college football's national championship.

For top-seeded Duke, No. 5 Denver, No. 6 Notre Dame and No. 7 Maryland, Saturday's semifinal round of the NCAA tournament at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore takes center stage in terms of preparation and focus. But for two of those teams, Monday's title game is nearly as imposing. Championship weekend presents the two programs that advance to the tournament final with the unique dilemma of going all-out in Saturday's semifinals, recovering physically on Sunday, and finding enough in the fuel tank to play in Monday's final.

As the third seed, the Blast faced the only playoff team with a losing record in the quarterfinals and dispatched the expansion New Jersey Ironmen in two straight, the second a grind-it-out game on the road. It encountered a stiffer assignment against Milwaukee in the semifinals but survived a thrilling and rugged game in Wisconsin, 14-13, when the Wave had to play without two of its stars, Marcio Leite (injury)

There was excitement and satisfaction and also a big sense of relief for the No. 1 Boys' Latin lacrosse team Friday at Towson's Johnny Unitas Stadium, an understandable mixed bag of emotions. Before that was a continuation of the excellent play the Lakers displayed all season as they overpowered No. 2 St. Paul's, 17-11, to claim the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship and complete an 18-0 season. It's the 10th league championship and fourth in the MIAA for Boys' Latin, which was the league's last team to enjoy a perfect season when it went 21-0 in 2006.
