Since Fallston High School opened in 1977, its field hockey program has won 13 state championship titles, an average of one every 2.6 years for those who have a penchant for sports stats. The Cougars did it this year by knocking off the Warriors of Pocomoke City, 4-2, in a game played at Washington College. It was the second state championship for the field hockey team at Fallston under the leadership of coach Megan Grant, who was also at the helm of the 2009 team that won the school its 12th title.

COLLEGE PARK -- To find a way to end the impressive streak the Sherwood softball team has enjoyed - two straight perfect seasons and a game away from another - Chesapeake-AA knew its margin of error would have to be close to none in Saturday's Class 4A state championship game. It's an awful lot to ask when going up against a hard-hitting team that has quality pitching, sound defense and the confidence of winning 61 straight games. Simply put, it was too much to ask of the No. 4 Cougars.

For most of Saturday night's Class 2A state final at UMBC, fourth-ranked Fallston appeared to have all of the answers for the high-powered offense of No. 2 Marriotts Ridge. The Mustangs, however, kept pressing and finally broke through when Kwadwo Owusu-Boiatey headed in a corner kick from Kyle Mercer with 6:07 left in the first overtime to give Marriotts Ridge a 1-0 victory. It was the Mustangs' first state title and their 16th consecutive victory. The Mustangs have only given up five goals over that stretch.

Chesapeake's Drew Spinnenweber has pitched like the ace he is all year. Friday night was no exception. The senior worked himself out of jams in the first and fifth innings and struck out 13 batters to lead the No. 4 Cougars of Anne Arundel County to a 2-0 win over Montgomery County's Sherwood (15-8) in the Class 4A state title game at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen. Spinnenweber helped his own cause with a double to start off the third. It was the only inning the Cougars scored in, and the only extra base hit in the game.

With the loss of its entire front line from a year ago, it appeared Fallston's two-time defending state champion field hockey team might stumble this season.After all, replacing the nearly 25 goals lost would not be an easy task, considering the Cougars were starting three newcomers on attack.Then again, Fallston never has been a team short on talent and Kate Simon, Carrie Wirth and Danielle Marconi have shown unusual poise for sophomores.Led by Wirth's eight goals, one assist and Simon's seven goals and two assists, the Cougars have scored three goals in a game eight times and through Friday, No. 2 Fallston (9-0, 6-0)

"I always have hopes -- hopes and fears," says Chesapeake girls soccer coach Lin Sullivan. "This year, more of my hopes have come true than my fears."And by a wide margin.Sullivan's team has tip-toed up the metro area rankings, all the way to No. 4 and past such perennial heavyweights as Old Mill (No. 5), St. Mary's (No. 7) and Severna Park (No. 10). The Cougars and Old Mill began the week as the only undefeated county squads.Chesapeake entered the season ranked No. 13, but seven victories later, the Cougars have left other teams in their dust.

The race for the county boys soccer title could all come down to Thursday's contest between Fallston and C. Milton Wright.Defending champion Fallston and C. Milton Wright were both undefeated against county foes going into Tuesday night's games.If the Cougars can get past Edgewood and the Mustangs can knock off Joppatowne on Tuesday, they would set up a Thursday night showdownat Fallston at 6:45 p.m.The Mustangs probably face the biggest Tuesday night test, since Joppatowne beat them last year, 2-1. But even if they were to lose to Joppatowne, the Mustangs could complicate the county title race -- and maybe claim a piece of it for themselves -- by knocking off Fallston.

There was 41 years worth of ice hockey experience going into the Carroll County Cougars' first year of developmental play in the Maryland Scholastic Hockey League. It came from a total of five players.The rest of the dozen or so players who filled the roster were newcomers to the sport. Most didn't even know what offsides was.There have been other battles for coach Matt Todd and his Cougars, starting with equipment and time slots to play their games.Ice time for practice also is hard to come by, costing around $180 an hour at the closest rinks in Frederick and Columbia.

Colleen Regan pitched a complete-game shutout and Faith Kujawa delivered at the plate as No. 11 Glenelg got over its early-round postseason jitters to defeat Atholton, 4-0, in a Class 3A East region second-round softball game Monday. The Gladiators put together one of their better all-around performances of the season. "The biggest thing we talked to the girls about was that last year felt great at 20-0 [in the regular season] and no one can take that undefeated season away from them, but that one loss came at the wrong time," said Glenelg coach Ray Gerstner, whose top-seeded teams had lost in the second round of the playoffs the past two seasons.

Scoop Kelly graduated from Fallston, but he spent the last nine seasons coaching Bel Air boys lacrosse. So, when the Bobcats hosted the Cougars on Friday, the teams played in memory of the former coach, who died suddenly in February. No. 12 Bel Air did its best to honor that memory. Senior attackman Calvin Fleagle scored four goals to lead the Bobcats past Fallston, 7-4, in an Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference Chesapeake Division game. "This game always meant extra to him," Bel Air head coach Chuck Muir said.

Trailing in front of the home crowd by nine at halftime Friday night, top-seeded Fallston started the third quarter needing to make up ground on visiting fourth seed Easton. The guests had other plans and started the second half by recovering an onside kick. That inauspicious beginning could've signaled the beginning of two very rough two quarters, but the Cougars were undeterred. Fallston outscored Easton, 15-0, over the last 24 minutes, rallying for a 27-21 victory and advancing to the regional title game.

There wasn't any defining moment or quick string of goals in Wednesday's Class 4A East boys lacrosse region title game featuring defending state champion South River and its Anne Arundel County rival Chesapeake. It was more just South River doing what it does best this time of year. The No. 10 Seahawks controlled play most of the way, methodically finished off scoring chances and clamped down on defense when called upon to earn a thorough 10-3 home win over the No. 13 Cougars and return to the Class 4A-3A state semifinals.
