A number of things separated the South Carroll Cavaliers from the rest of the county this season.It took less than a quarter last night against Liberty to see the biggest, as 6-foot-4 senior center Matt McGrane scored 12 of the Cavs' first 14 points to get things started.In the second half, it was the guard play of senior Greg Mihalko, who finished with 15, including a big three-pointer in the Cavs' first possession of the half, to give them a 13-point lead.Throw in better and better balance as the season progressed and a little more experience than the rest of the field and there you have it.South Carroll's 73-60 county-clinching win over visiting Liberty featured all of those things as the Cavs ended Westminster's two-year reign as county champs.

The biggest thing the Sparrows Point girls soccer team stressed at halftime of Friday's game against No. 9 Catonsville was being sure to respond favorably if the Comets scored. So when the visitors did score a tying goal midway through the second half, the Pointers had a chance to apply what they discussed. They did so impressively. Sparrows Point came right back, getting a goal from Jamie Shiflett three minutes later and went on to claim a well-deserved, 3-1 upset win over Catonsville.

While New Town was making most of the noise in Baltimore County boys basketball this season - most notably by ending Milford Mill's 99-game league winning streak - Randallstown was efficiently going about its business.

Trailing 10 points at the half to the No. 5 Titans, Randallstown pulled close in the third quarter and took over in the fourth to come away with a resilient, 69-64, win at Towson University's SECU Arena.

The Arundel girls soccer team's priority in Tuesday's Anne Arundel County championship game against rival Broadneck was a fast start. The No. 3 Wildcats also spent extra time in practice defending corner kicks and long throws, which have been reliable sources of offense for the No. 2 Bruins throughout the season. It all paid off. With senior All-Metro forward Clarissa Kirsch-Downs providing the offense with a ninth-minute goal and the defense holding firm the rest of the way, Arundel earned a 1-0 win to capture the program's second county championship.

Entering Thursday's action, No. 9 Atholton, Oakland Mills and Reservoir each had a shot at a share of the Howard County baseball championship. The visiting Raiders defeated Wilde Lake, 6-3, to claim the title. The host Gators beat the Scorpions, 4-1, in Thursday's other county game. Had Wilde Lake beaten Atholton and Reservoir defeated Oakland Mills, all three teams would have finished with 12-5 league records. After dispatching Wilde Lake, the Raiders (13-4) only had to wait to see if Oakland Mills would beat Reservoir to clinch the other half of the title, or if Reservoir would win, giving Atholton the championship outright.
