The Charlotte Cobras slithered into Baltimore Arena last night in search of their first victory in the Major Indoor Lacrosse League.What the Cobras found was a Baltimore team that was sympathetic to the expansion team's plight but more concerned about its own destiny.The Thunder, a team in need of a win to stay in the playoff hunt, got it in a decisive fashion as it beat the Cobras, 14-10, before 5,602 supporters.This one wasn't as close as the score would indicate. The Thunder led by eight heading into the fourth quarter and, with several of their reserves on the floor, were outscored 5-1 in the final period.

FOR A team put together primarily to hone skills for outdoor soccer, the Thunder Soccer Club's under-10 boys futsal team, the Cobras, built itself one memorable summer - indoors. Those dozen boys from mostly the western part of Howard County became, not quite accidentally, the best team in their age group in the United States in the little-known version of indoor soccer. As manager Mark Capps put it, "What began as a training exercise became a championship, a big deal" - with a mandatory side trip to Disneyland because the U.S. Futsal Federation's 18th national tournament last month was conducted in Anaheim, Calif.

Having lost some key players from last season's Class 1A state semifinalist team, Harford Tech boys soccer coach Andy Bleichfeld isn't too upset at the Cobras' 3-4 start. He is confident the team is just experiencing growing pains. "We know we have a tougher schedule this year," said Bleichfeld, whose team went 14-4-1 last year and earned the school's first trip to the state semifinals. "We know it's going to be toughening us up for the regionals. It's really going to help us." Although they lost their top scorer as well as anchors at midfield and defense, the Cobras do have experienced players in seniors Kyle Ramsel (goalie)

Hey fans, how 'bout them Baltimore Cobras?Prospective owners of new NFL franchises so far have filed trademark applications on 13 names for their teams, ranging from the Memphis Hound Dogs and Jacksonville Sharks to the St. Louis Archers.Aside from a few off-beat ideas, most borrow heavily from the tried-and-true animal kingdom. Sundays in front of the television set could soon include a few new cats, a deadly snake, an oafish dog, a work horse or even a man-eating fish.All three of the Baltimore investment groups say their first pick is to buy the Colts name from the team that moved it to Indianapolis.

The Harford Tech boys soccer team had an unforgettable season, marching to the Class 1A state final four last weekend for the first time in school history. There were plenty of heroes this season for the Cobras, but no one was happier than senior reserve forward Matt Oates. He was so excited after scoring the winning goal in a 3-2 overtime victory over Marriotts Ridge in the Class 1A North regional championship game that he ran off the field. His slightly stunned teammates followed him and piled on for a wild victory celebration in front of the Cobras' home fans in Bel Air. It just wasn't a traditional post-game middle-of-the-field party.

The loss is believed to be the first to a public school in McDonogh's 10 years under coach Pete Welch, whose Eagles are 17-4 this season to No. 3 Harford Tech's 10-0. "I edged him, 3-2, last year, but I stepped it up more tonight," said Taylor, who is ranked No. 3 at 17-2. "I wrestled my best under extreme pressure."

Harford Tech won the Harford County wrestling championship last night in Bel Air, coming from behind in the finals to edge Fallston, 184.5-179.5. For Tech coach Gary Siler and his team, the scenario was all too familiar. "It's no different from what we've been through all year," Siler said. "We're always down until the last couple of rounds, then we come back to win it. We sit back and wait." The Cobras, whose strength lies in the lighter weight classes, won five of the first eight matches of the finals, then gathered in the corner of the gym to wait for a little help from other teams in the later matches.

Michael Griffith Harford Tech Griffith has been slowly building the Harford Tech program during his four years as coach, and everything came into place this season. The Cobras won the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference title and then the region before taking second in the Class 1A state meet, losing to Smithsburg by four points. The school got an outdoor track for the first time, and Griffith said that was a big reason for the success. "It helped a ton — it really did," he said.

A Fallston-Harford Tech wrestling rivalry, defined in recent years by close matches and controversy, added another exciting chapter last night. With the score tied at 24, the No. 4 Cobras took the last three matches to capture a 39-24 victory over the host Cougars. Fallston's two-time state champion, Nathan Bachmann, had evened the match by capturing a 6-4 decision over previously undefeated Josh Taylor in the night's marquee match at 152 pounds. But the Cobras closed with a 6-0 decision by Matt Zaun over Ben Minshall at 160, and consecutive pins by Jeff Gardner and Tony Gibson at 171 and 189. Gardner's second-period pin over Dan Sullivan was the clincher for the Cobras, who improved to 5-0, 3-0 in Harford County, but not without the tussle that they have come to expect from the Cougars (4-1, 2-1)
