An early-season league win for the Boys' Latin lacrosse team normally doesn't call for the student section to rush onto the field to celebrate. But Saturday afternoon's victory against Loyola, the defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champion, was an exception. Possessing the ball for most of the second half, the No. 1 Lakers wore down the No. 4 Dons to break open a close game and claim an 11-8 win. On a picture-perfect day before an overflow crowd of more than 1,000 at Hargaden Field, Boys' Latin got two goals and three assists from Shack Stanwick, three goals from Colin Chell, strong work from Hunter Moreland on faceoffs and seven saves from goalie Jack Pezzula.

At 0-3 in the Northeast Conference and with just three league contests remaining, Mount St. Mary's knows there's no need to sugarcoat what is at stake when the team visits conference foe Bryant on Saturday. “There's no way to possibly look at it in any other way at this game,” coach Tom Gravante said Thursday afternoon. “It's a must-win to keep our playoff hopes alive. We have three left, and there is a chance that we can get there. … We can still get in there at 3-3.” That path begins when the Mountaineers (0-12 overall)

PORTLAND, Ore. - He's not scary in person. Alan Cordle is 36, pale and round with thick glasses and soft fleshy cheeks. He smiles often and speaks in a wispy voice, which suits his day job as a librarian at Portland Community College. Cordle also happens to be the most despised - some would say most feared - man in American poetry. At the very least, he is for the moment the most talked-about figure in this corner of the literary world. Major poets, some with Pulitzer Prizes and MacArthur fellowships on their resumes, call him an "attack dog," an "assassin," a "hangman" and, worst, a "brat with a major rage disorder."

WASHINGTON -- A raging internal struggle among House Democrats left Rep. Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland scrambling to prevail today in his bid to become party leader against a hard-knuckled campaign by Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi to install her ally Rep. John P. Murtha of Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, Senate Republicans chose Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky yesterday to be minority leader. They also elected Sen. Trent Lott of Mississippi - forced from the pinnacle of power four years ago over remarks perceived as racially insensitive - as the minority whip in an upset that underscores the unpredictability of intramural secret-ballot leadership contests.

Editor's Note: Jerdine Nolen shows today that life doesn't have to be a spectator sport. Do you want to play a game? Unlock a mystery? Reach the planet Pluto before anyone else? Do you want to become a millionaire? Do you have what it takes to capture a kingdom away from its king? Since the beginning of time, we have been engaged in entertaining pastimes, which speaks to our need for social interaction and intellectual stimulation. Athletic competitions, game shows and other contests are a chance to showcase what we've learned.

Prior to this season, Chris Carr had never been injured, playing in 96 consecutive games. But the Ravens cornerback sat out seven contests because of hamstring and back injuries. Carr endured another “first” as he was deactivated in the team's 20-13 victory over the Houston Texans in Sunday's AFC divisional playoff round despite being healthy for the first time in his career. Coach John Harbaugh said the decision to scratch Carr - who started all 16 games at cornerback last season - was based on the need to activate six defensive linemen against Houston running backs Arian Foster and Ben Tate.

Under Armour founder Kevin Plank was so impressed with Friday's winner of the nationwide entrepreneur competition he runs with the University of Maryland, he offered the graduate student $25,000 in exchange for a stake in his company. Disease Diagnostic Group founder John Lewandowski walked away with $105,000 in total from the Cupid's Cup Business Competition - $75,000 in first place winnings, $5,000 as the audience favorite and the sweetener from Plank. Carrie Handwerker, a spokeswoman for the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business, said Plank arranged for the equity stake to be held by his Cupid Foundation.

Homewood Field in Baltimore is one of the more tradition-rich sites for men's lacrosse, and more than one opponent challenging Johns Hopkins has felt slightly intimidated by the venue, the nine NCAA championship banners and the blue- and white-clad crowd. But after scoring a 10-9 decision against the Blue Jays at Homewood on April 5, 2013, Albany - which will pay another visit on Friday at 7 p.m. - has no qualms about entering enemy territory. “We have a lot of guys who played last year and are playing again this weekend, knowing that they can step onto that field and can play well and can compete with them,” said Great Danes coach Scott Marr, a former attackman at Johns Hopkins and former offensive coordinator at Maryland.

Johns Hopkins enjoys a 57-28-1 advantage in this series and has won the last three meetings. But prior to that, Virginia had won six straight contests, and the Cavaliers' 86 games against the Blue Jays equal the most the program has played against one opponent. No. 10 Johns Hopkins (5-1) suffered its first loss of the season when Syracuse held onto a 12-10 decision on Saturday. Drew Kennedy did what he could for the Blue Jays in that loss, setting career highs of 21 faceoff wins in 25 attempts and 15 ground balls.
