Randallstown girls basketball coach Ron Isaacs called his team "the Cinderella team" of the state Class 2A state semifinals, but the Rams did not have a great time at the ball. Isaacs' youngsters stuck close for a while before Middletown's combination of outside shooting and inside strength overwhelmed them and powered the Knights to a 60-27 victory at UMBC's RAC Arena. The Rams (22-7) had their only leads in the first quarter. Mariah Byam's follow shot and Essence Stinnette's free throw gave them a 9-8 edge, but that would be their last lead as Middletown scored 12 straight points.

EMMITSBURG - If you like your March Madness stories improbable, this is the team for you. The Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers are a rag-tag group of transfers and unsung recruits who, two years ago, watched their previous coach resign midway through an 8-21 season. Their current coach, Jamion Christian, is all of 31 years old with two years experience heading a program. They lost their first five games of the season and stood 3-9 when the calendar turned to 2014. They trailed by eight with less than a minute to go in the opening game of the Northeast Conference tournament.

In his author's note at the beginning of "The Rough-Face Girl," Rafe Martin writes that the 1,500 or so versions of the Cinderella story have kept alive "the universal yearning for justice."Who doesn't root for good (pure-hearted Cinderella) to triumph over evil (her vain, bullying stepsisters)? It explains why it is perhaps the most popular folk tale of all time, preserved in different forms over the centuries by people of all cultures.History will show that during our blip on the screen of civilization, Walt Disney's was the definitive version.

Melancholy fits the game of baseball like a batting glove. For every moment of heroic achievement, there is one of misery and despair; for each Bobby Thomson "shot heard 'round the world" to win the 1951 National League Pennant for the New York Giants, there's a Bill Buckner error to cost the Boston Red Sox the 1986 World Series. That doesn't make baseball a bad sport, it makes it a great one. Overcoming adversity is the nature of baseball, and if adversity didn't sometimes win, it wouldn't be much of a game.

By the time Seattle Slew arrived at Pimlico for the 102nd Preakness on May 21, 1977, the fairy tale was one-third told.A modest $17,500 purchase as a yearling, Seattle Slew had starred in the rags-to-riches story of winning the Kentucky Derby. His owners -- two fun-loving couples in their 30s dubbed the "Slew Crew" -- were the darlings of American racing.The nation's sports fans watched eagerly as Seattle Slew -- this dark-brown blaze of speed so awkward as a baby that his handlers called him "Baby Huey" after the clumsy comic-strip character -- tried to do what no horse had ever done: win the Triple Crown without having lost a race.

Maybe the time has come to give the Cinderella story a rest for a while. A Cinderella Story is the third retelling this year of the beautiful-girl-finds-her-Prince Charming myth (after The Prince & Me and Ella Enchanted), and the results have been on a steady decline - culminating (for now) in this listless, charmless, humorless and resolutely non-enchanting movie that should appeal only to teen and preteen girls who desperately want to be star Hilary Duff (or who have desperate crushes on co-star Chad Michael Murphy)

It was going to happen eventually. He simply couldn't win every time he teed it up (could he?) Still, it was somewhat remarkable yesterday morning when Australia's Geoff Ogilvy officially ended Tiger Woods' winning streak by wrapping up the rain-delayed CA Championship. Ogilvy shot a 1-under-par 71 to end the somewhat absurd talk of Tiger's perfect season, finishing at 17-under, one shot better than Retief Goosen, Vijay Singh and Jim Furyk. Woods started the day five back and finished fifth.

Some people just don't crave scary movies come Halloween. Have no fear, there is a wide variety of films out there that will still set the mood for the spooky holiday, but won't leave viewers trembling under the covers into the wee hours of Nov. 1. "A Cinderella Story" (2004) -- After wooing Hilary Duff via e-mail, you finally decide to meet her face-to-face. The best place to do that? A high school dance on Halloween, of course. Heads up, parents. If you don't want your early-teen daughter to go carousing on Oct. 31, you may one day be able to convince her to rent this movie (it's not in stores just yet)

Everybody loves a Cinderella story.Changing pumpkins into golden coaches and mice into high-stepping chargers might be considered child's play for Scott Rand and Merrilyne Hendrickson, though. Even firm fairy-tale partisans might find the couple's transformation of a humble Annapolis cottage into a three-story contemporary showplace beyond the bounds of belief.As fairy godmothers are in short supply, Ms. Hendrickson and Mr. Rand had to work the "magic" themselves. While they had some help with the foundation and systems, they acted as their own designers and draftsmen and carpenters and bricklayers and landscape architects.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- All the accolades and excitement from UMBC's first NCAA tournament will still be there one day to remember. But yesterday, the Retrievers were left frustrated by a powerful, tournament-tested Georgetown team that dominated inside and advanced to the second round with a 66-47 victory. Smaller at almost every position, the 15th-seeded Retrievers were victimized by the Hoyas' defense and balanced offensive game. Eager to contain 7-foot-2 Georgetown center Roy Hibbert, UMBC sent extra defenders to the low post.

Lorenzo Charles has recent snapshots of himself standing beside Bill Clinton, Bill Gates and James Earl Jones. The three knew Charles only as a tall, friendly limousine driver who ferried them around Raleigh, N.C. But for the next few weeks, you'll see more of Charles on television than those VIPs combined. Rewind the videotape. It's the 1983 NCAA final, and North Carolina State and Houston are tied. With seconds left, the Wolfpack's Dereck Whittenburg uncorks a 35-footer that misses everything.

Opera fans have enjoyed a remarkable feast of fresh experiences so far this season served up by the Baltimore Opera Company and Washington National Opera, both presenting an appetizing assortment of works never before staged in this region. Now comes dessert, courtesy of Peabody Opera Theatre, which offers a rare staging of Massenet's Cendrillon. This endearing take on the Cinderella story had a glittering premiere in Paris in 1899 but never worked its way into the standard repertoire.

NEW YORK - If Margo Lion hadn't come down with a head cold three years ago, none of this would have happened. She was in bed, nursing the sniffles and watching videos, when it hit her: Hairspray, the 1988 movie by counterculture filmmaker John Waters, has all the makings of a classic American musical. It was a revelation, she admits. The Tony Award-winning Broadway producer and Baltimore native hadn't been a huge fan of the Waters film when it came out. Waters' only movie to earn a PG rating (much to his shock and dismay)

A movie review of "Celestial Clockwork" in yesterday's Today section misidentified music from an opera used in the film. The music was from Rossini's "La Cenerentola."The Sun regrets the error.Count "Cinderella" among the handful of stories that nodirector can really truly screw up, because its story mechanism is so perfectly wound and because its payoff is so deliciously enjoyable.Thus what is most amusing about "Celestial Clockwork," a French-Venezuelan-Belgian-Spanish (!) co-production opening today at the Charles, is the clever usage it puts to the Cinderella story.
