Trailing by a goal, Columbia's Maryland Majestic players did some soul-searching at halftime. It was obvious they needed to improve on a lackluster first-half performance or the Maryland Cup would be belong to the Bethesda Force.A more intense Majestic side emerged after intermission. Abby Crumpton and Jane Williams then tallied in a two-minute span midway through the second half and defending titlist Majestic dTC had a 2-1 victory over the Force for the girls under-16 crown yesterday in the Snickers Maryland Cup championships at Carroll County Community College.

We went to Dixon's Furniture Auction on the Eastern Shore looking for a garden bench. Eight hours, $298, four lime snowballs and one sunburn later, we left with: Two garden benches ($20) Three stained-glass windows ($230) Two nightstands ($40) One wrought iron table ($5) Two blue plates (free) One glass cream and sugar set (free) Half a roasted chicken ($3) If we'd found a partridge in a pear tree, we probably would have bought that, too. That's the way it is at Dixon's, the weekly junk / furniture / whatever auction that dealers say is the best on the East Coast.

You might consider Crumpton (pop. perhaps 500) to be the town that was swallowed by an auction. The quiet riverbank hamlet in Queen Anne's County serves as a backdrop to Dixon's Furniture Inc., one of the region's liveliest -- and most comprehensive -- auctions of antiques and memorable miscellany.The daylong sale, held every Wednesday, commands a warehouse-sized barn and acres of parking lots. It draws Amish farmers from Lancaster County, furniture dealers from the Mid-Atlantic states and bargain hunters from just about everywhere.

CRUMPTON -- Everyone will gather here at Ken and Donna Hill's sprawling four-bedroom house in the country, as they always do at Thanksgiving. Donna will cook. Ken will break out the folding chairs and long tables so 20-plus people can sit down to eat in the family room. But this year, Thanksgiving will be unlike any they've known. This year, their thoughts rarely stray from their youngest, 19-year-old Lance Cpl. Jake Hill, a Marine Corps infantryman who is serving his first combat assignment in Iraq.

David Hayden first made a name for himself in the horse business by breeding champion sprinter Safely Kept.Now, the Baltimore County owner is enjoying additional success after persevering with another fast horse, Goldminer's Dream.Yesterday, the 6-year-old runner, hampered over the years by numerous injuries, stamped himself as the local horse to beat in the coming Frank J. De Francis Dash when he raced six furlongs in 1 minute, 9 3/5 seconds in Laurel Park's $78,600 Housebuster Stakes.Ron Cartwright, trainer of the more lightly-regarded Crumpton, thought the only way to beat the Hayden runner was to get the jump on him out of the gate.
