Fifth-seeded Denver had faithfully stuck to a goalie rotation, but it was a change in the cage that helped top-seeded and reigning national champion Duke emerge with a 15-12 win in an NCAA tournament semifinal at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Saturday. After sophomore Luke Aaron allowed a goal to sophomore attackman Wesley Berg that allowed the Pioneers to close the gap to 11-10 just 74 seconds into the fourth quarter, the Blue Devils countered by pulling Aaron for junior Kyle Turri.

FitzGerald Tennis Center, disrupting the Legg Mason Tennis Classic for the second time in three days last night, but this time play was able to resume and two-time defending champion Michael Chang advanced to the quarterfinals with an easy victory.The rain delay of 1 hour and 30 minutes was actually longer than Chang's third-round match.

WIMBLEDON, England -- Trapped by the incessant rains and its own intransigence, Wimbledon stumbled on yesterday with one of its worst-organized two weeks in recent years. It took four days for Andy Roddick, the lone American man remaining in the singles tournament, to get back on court, only to be rained off again when he was within a service hold of taking a two-set lead in his fourth-round match against Paul-Henri Mathieu. It has been even more aggravating for No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal, who began playing Robin Soderling on Saturday.

AVRANCHES, France - Lance Armstrong is perceived to be so invulnerable that it's startling to see him take his foot off the pedal even momentarily. Armstrong lost a little time he would rather not have lost in yesterday's stage of the Tour de France. U.S. Postal Service teammate Roberto Heras, who was in his usual position on Armstrong's back wheel, was bumped by another rider less than two miles from the end of the 109.1-mile stage and toppled into the defending champion. Heras' handlebars had to be disengaged from Armstrong's wheel spokes while the rest of the team waited.

COLLEGE PARK - Milford Mill coach Mike Silverman said earlier this week that his team was going to play with a "calm urgency" heading into the Class 3A semifinal Thursday at the University of Maryland's Comcast Center. The No. 4 Millers, however, ran into a Westlake team that was primed to play with a reckless abandon. Appearing in just its second state tournament, Westlake, of Waldorf, swarmed to the ball and made enough key baskets down the stretch to pull out a 71-68 victory and knock off the defending champions.

The biggest thing separating River Hill from the rest of Howard County's best teams this season is an offense that can strike from anywhere at any time. The No. 3 Hawks, defending county and state Class 3A champions, have proven finishers who can find the goal. On Tuesday at No. 8 Marriotts Ridge, the Hawks got perfectly placed goals from junior Alex Hamer and sophomore Jessica Hopkins, and their defense contained the pressing Mustangs in a 2-0 win. River Hill improved to 6-3 overall and 6-0 in Howard County, while Marriotts Ridge fell to 7-1-1 and 4-1-1 in the league.

There is a saying in lacrosse that to enjoy postseason success, a team has to be strong up the middle. Kip Turner is familiar with that mantra about solid play from the goalkeeper and faceoff specialist, but the Chesapeake Bayhawks goalie said he is not carrying any additional pressure as the team prepares for Saturday's start of the Major League Lacrosse playoffs. "I think the only pressure that I have is from myself, to keep doing what I've been doing all season and to make the saves that I need to make," said Turner, a Severn graduate.
