Never discount the power of luck. If anything could have gone wrong for Westlake in the closing seconds of Friday night's Class 3A girls basketball state semifinal game, it did. And No. 13 River Hill was the beneficiary, capitalizing with a 59-54 victory. "That was a really, really good team," River Hill coach Teresa Waters said. "We knew they were good, and luck was on our side. " Westlake's game began to crumble in the last 21 seconds, when Alyssa Fort hit a 3-pointer to pull the Wolverines within a point.

Snowy travel delayed Milford Mill's arrival at last night's Class 3A North regional final at Hereford. Once the Millers arrived, however, the No. 7 Bulls proceeded to run them off the road.

For the seniors on Marriotts Ridge's girls lacrosse team, putting their third state title in perspective wasn't all that easy. Wednesday's 18-5 Class 3A-2A title victory over Oakdale at UMBC sent the No. 4 Mustangs seniors off with the happy ending they wanted, but it was a split decision whether this championship was better than their first. "Freshman year was the best. Nothing can compare with that feeling," senior defender Alexis Zadjura said of the first girls lacrosse championship in school history.

Not much went right for the defending state champion Marriotts Ridge girls lacrosse team in the first 34 minutes of Monday's sectional final. No. 10 Century dominated possession and ran up a four-goal lead while the Mustangs were uncharacteristically sloppy with the ball and managed just five shots. The No. 4 Mustangs, however, made up for it by scoring the final five goals of the game to take an 8-7 victory in the Class 3A-2A South Section I final. Senior midfielder Taylor Hensh scored three of her five goals in the finishing run as the host Mustangs won the toughest girls lacrosse section in the state.

COLLEGE PARK -- With four minutes left in Saturday's Class 3A state title game, the City boys basketball team was beating Westlake by two points with its perfect season on the line. Coming out of a timeout, coach Daryl Wade sent out a small lineup, spread the floor and told his group to be patient. Mostly swinging the ball around the perimeter, the Knights' next two possessions ate up a good chunk of the remaining clock before senior guard Kamau Stokes found an easy path to the basket for two more points with 1:41 to play.

Speed and quickness prevailed in Saturday night's Class 3A state basketball championship, but it came down to the final seconds. Milford Mill used its transition game and perimeter defense to win its first state title since 2005, edging Damascus and 6-foot-5 forward Kelli Prange, 40-37, at Towson's SECU Arena. “It feels surreal,” Millers senior Qierra Murray said. “After the Aberdeen game [in the regional final], I had a dream that night that this was going to happen. It's still unbelievable, but it really feels good.” Prange - a senior headed for George Washington - scored 20 points and had 17 rebounds, but against the quicker Millers, the Hornets' perimeter game never got going.

COLLEGE PARK - Milford Mill coach Mike Silverman said earlier this week that his team was going to play with a "calm urgency" heading into the Class 3A semifinal Thursday at the University of Maryland's Comcast Center. The No. 4 Millers, however, ran into a Westlake team that was primed to play with a reckless abandon. Appearing in just its second state tournament, Westlake, of Waldorf, swarmed to the ball and made enough key baskets down the stretch to pull out a 71-68 victory and knock off the defending champions.

The state Class 3A football championship figured to be a high-scoring affair with Franklin and Linganore averaging more than 40 points each, but defense took over early and a touchdown pass on fourth-and-20 provided the offensive jolt. Late in the third quarter, Franklin quarterback Jacquez Adams hit Steven Smothers with a 27-yard touchdown pass on that fourth-down play to give the No. 9 Indians a 14-7 edge en route to a 20-7 victory at M&T Bank Stadium for the first state football championship in school history.

For much of the first half of its Class 3A East region semifinal against Seneca Valley, River Hill dominated but failed to capitalize on many scoring opportunities. But late in the half last night, Hawks senior midfielder Tyler Meade scored from just inside the Seneca Valley goal box. The Hawks then added three more goals in the next 24 minutes to cruise to a 4-0 victory over the Screaming Eagles (8-5-1), advancing to a fourth straight state final. For River Hill (14-1-1), composure in the box and the ability to put shots on goal were the keys to the game, Hawks coach Bill Stara said.

In the hours leading to Monday's Class 3A state semifinal, C. Milton Wright coach Janice Rhodes said she sensed an uneasiness about her top-ranked field hockey team. "We had a lot of nerves going on … on the bus ride up [and] throughout the day," Rhodes said. By early in the second half, both those nerves and the chances of a meltdown against Calvert County's Huntingtown had vanished. Jenny Eckert and Haley Matthai scored back-to-back goals in a span of 2 minutes, 11 seconds , helping the Mustangs earn their first trip to the state finals with a 3-0 win at Franklin High School.

Last year, the River Hill girls soccer team enjoyed a perfect 19-0 season with the Class 3A state crown and the area's No. 1 ranking in hand. With most of its starters back -- led by the dynamic one-two punch of Sheridan Street and Alex Hamer -- many believed the team would once again roll this season. But it wasn't that easy. The No. 5 Hawks (9-4-1) faced a number of considerable challenges in what turned out to be a deep and talented Howard County field and needed to beat Wilde Lake on the regular season's final day to successfully defend their Howard County crown.
