With Jay Carlson and Pat Powderly providing a precise one-two punch on attack and junior goalie Gunner Waldt firmly standing his ground in the net, the No. 3 St. Paul's lacrosse team came away with a 6-3 win over previously undefeated Calvert Hall in a cold and steady rain in Brooklandville on Tuesday. Carlson scored the Crusaders' final four goals covering two-plus quarters - Powderly providing pinpoint passes on the first three - and Waldt finished with 11 saves in the early-season Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference victory.

When the No. 1 McDonogh boys soccer team is playing rival St. Paul's and in desperate need of a goal, it knows who to turn to: junior defender Michael DeShields. With the game scoreless in the final minutes of the second overtime on Wednesday, DeShields made his way in front of the Crusaders' goal to find a corner kick sent in by Tunde Akinlosotu. DeShields got a little higher than No. 5 St. Paul's goalie Conor Brown, heading home the game-winner with 3:54 left for a 1-0 win. Sound familiar?

The long diagonal run from St. Paul's senior Nate Hall started before midfield and didn't end until he got past the 18-yard mark. Most times, such an effort would finish with a goal from the All-Metro striker, but circumstances were much different this time: The Crusaders had been caught flat-footed against McDonogh earlier this season, and the No. 1 Eagles were set to cash in on a quick counter. Hall sprinted back to the defensive third to disrupt that plan. Supplying offense is Hall's primary role for No. 5 St. Paul's (7-2-1)

Cardinal Gibbons competes on the same field where Babe Ruth once played, and the sense of history is not lost on the Crusaders.

The win also sets up what Cardinal Gibbons coach Lee Schwarzenberg said is a "David vs. Goliath" title matchup against Calvert Hall on Wednesday at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen.

Western coach Tiffany Silver stressed one thing at halftime in yesterday's game against Riverdale Baptist: cutting down on turnovers. Still the turnovers continued to hinder the No. 2 Doves as they gave the ball away 30 times - 15 in each half - in a 55-45 loss to The Washington Post's No. 1 girls team yesterday at the 13th annual Basketball Academy at Morgan State's Hill Field House.

Michael Phelps was largely forgiven for driving drunk near Salisbury University in 2004 because he was 19 years old. The charge was reduced to driving impaired, his record ultimately wiped clean by the courts. Five years later when a photo of him inhaling from a water pipe commonly used to smoke marijuana hit the Internet, he apologized again, and that incident blew over quickly as well. But what happened early Tuesday morning outside the Fort McHenry Tunnel was different. The man who possesses the most Olympic medals of any athlete in history failed a Breathalyzer test.

Johns Hopkins' football team is off to a 2-0 start for the fourth consecutive year, but this fall's beginning felt differently than in previous seasons. After an overpowering 42-3 victory over Randolph-Macon on Sept. 6, the Blue Jays merely outlasted Susquehanna, 27-20, in Saturday's Centennial Conference opener. Johns Hopkins needed an interception by senior safety Ryan Rice and a fumble caused by Rice that was recovered by junior cornerback Curtis Antrum to overcome four turnovers (two interceptions and two fumbles)

It took St. Paul's attackman Henry Riehl just 42 seconds to swing the momentum for his team against Gilman in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A conference semifinal Tuesday night. Riehl scored twice in the opening minute of the final quarter to give the No. 2 Crusaders a two-goal cushion after trailing at the half. St. Paul's then dictated play the rest of the way and came away with a 9-8 victory over the No. 4 Greyhounds at Johnny Unitas Stadium. The Crusaders, who are two years removed from winning just three games, play No. 1 Boys' Latin in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A conference championship Friday.

No. 2 St. Paul's took a big step toward securing the second seed in the upcoming Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference playoffs on Tuesday afternoon by rallying past defending champion Loyola, 14-11, in a steady rain at Hargaden Field in Towson. The Crusaders (10-5, 6-1 conference) remained a game ahead of Gilman in the standings in the chase for a first-round bye and still have a chance to grab a top seed if they beat Mount St. Joseph on Friday and knock off No. 1 and unbeaten Boys' Latin next week.

For 23 years, Penny Troutner has owned Light Street Cycles in Federal Hill. And she had seen bicycles on Baltimore's streets, for recreation and transportation, even before she opened her bike shop. But Troutner holds up 2011 as the year she noticed drivers giving cyclists in the city more room on the road. It's a year Baltimore's cycling community easily, but regrettably, recalls. In August 2011, 20-year-old Nathan Krasnopoler, the Johns Hopkins University student who suffered brain injuries after colliding with a car that had turned into his lane, died nearly seven months after losing consciousness permanently in February.

After earning a second-place regular season finish, the No. 2 Crusaders continued their impressive run Wednesday by scoring three second half goals to beat No. 6 Archbishop Curley in the conference semifinals, 3-0, in Brooklandville. Juwan Kearson led the way with two goals and an assist, and Hall added a goal and an assist for St. Paul's, which plays McDonogh for the league title Sunday at Archbishop Spalding.
