In 39 years as a head coach, Delaware's Bob Shillinglaw has seen - and consequently, prepared for - many strategies and tactics from opponents. But even he sounded mystified as to why his team failed to score a goal in the second half of Saturday night's 11-8 loss to Colonial Athletic Association rival Towson (7-2, 1-0). The Blue Hens (5-4 overall and 0-2 in the conference) took just six shots in the final two quarters and seemed to be out of sorts against the No. 20 Tigers' zone defense.

There has been recent discussion of having certain Western Maryland counties secede and become a separate state. In addition, the governor of Texas is running ads touting his state as a better place in which to live and do business. This brings to mind a recent trend that I have noticed. At least some of the people that I know are "voting with their feet. " As a retired school teacher, many of my friends and acquaintances are retired school teachers. In recent years, some of these retired school teachers have moved to Delaware.

Towson holds a 37-17 advantage in its series with Delaware and has won five of the last seven meetings with its Colonial Athletic Association foe. Eight of the last 14 contests in this rivalry have been decided by two goals or less, and the Tigers are 6-2 in those games. Delaware (5-3 overall and 0-1 in the conference) had a four-game winning streak in Saturday's 11-9 loss to Hofstra. Conor Peaks, who replaced then-junior Chris Herbert and started the final started the final seven games of 2013, has started all eight contests thus far. Peaks, a sophomore, has posted a 8.13 goals-against average and a .596 save percentage.

By the time Friday arrives we're all tired of playing in the same sandbox. We need a little freedom and creativity. A little time away from the co-worker who frequently piles up all of his dirt on your turf. Maybe if the playing field was a little bigger, say the size of a beach, we wouldn't have to draw a line in the sand. The Sandcastle Contest at Rehoboth Beach is the perfect place to test that theory — and maybe even work a bit on those team building skills. The annual event on the Delaware shore, sponsored by the Rehoboth Beach- Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce, draws hundreds of contestants and spectators and awards prizes for both adults and children.

For the first time in years, Maryland's beloved National Premium is being brewed again - in Delaware. Tim Miller, an Easton realtor, bought the naming rights to the brand last year with plans to bring it back to the market for the first time since it was discontinued in 1996. Last we'd heard from him he'd secured the original recipe and was looking to hire a contract-brewer. That still hasn't happened, but for the past several weeks, he's started brewing the beer's first test batches at Fordham Brewing Company in Dover.

My wife and I are both over 65 and we have found it too expensive to continue living in Maryland. We have purchased a new home in a 55 and over community in Delaware where the property taxes will be one-third what we pay in Baltimore County. Other costs such as car tags and license fees are also lower, and there is no state sales tax at all. We have met other people from Maryland who have bought homes in Delaware, and we all basically left or are leaving for the same reasons.

The Towson men's lacrosse team's most challenging win of 2014 may also have been its most satisfying. Trailing 5-0 in the first quarter, the No. 20 Tigers persisted and persevered as they emerged with an 11-8 win over Delaware at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson on Saturday night. Towson improved to 7-2 overall and 1-0 in the Colonial Athletic Association and extended its winning streak to six games, the program's longest winning streak since 2004 when that squad won eight straight games.

Last season, Towson stumbled its way to a 4-5 record through the non-Colonial Athletic Association portion of its schedule before righting the ship and winning the league tournament to qualify for the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2007. This year, the Tigers are in a vastly different - and stronger - position. No. 20 Towson is 6-2, which is the program's best start since 2001, when that squad opened the season with 10 wins in 12 games. No one is equating what the current group is doing with that 2001 team, but coach Shawn Nadelen said the positive mark is an encouraging sign for the Tigers.

When the Colonial Athletic Association unveiled its preseason poll in January, Penn State and Towson were atop the poll, while Delaware was bringing up the rear. That snub has resonated with the Blue Hens. “I think any team that is picked to be less successful than what they think they can be is going to play with a little chip on their shoulder,” coach Bob Shillinglaw said Wednesday. “Coming back, everybody's trying to work through the season. You're seeing some games where there are some surprises here and there, but I think this team is playing well together.

The players for both Towson and UMBC were fully prepared for another tight, physical matchup heading into their annual nonconference game on Tuesday at Johnny Unitas Stadium. There had been little separation between the rivals over the years, as nine of their past 11 meetings were decided by three goals or fewer. This game was no different, as the No. 20 Tigers received goals from Devin Grimaldi, Max Siskind and Mike Lynch in a span of two minutes late in the fourth quarter, which led to a 10-8 victory.

The Colonial Athletic Association tournament may have been short on fans, but the four-day event ended in a way organizers surely loved: with a frantic, late-game comeback and an iconic image of fans bounding onto the Baltimore Arena floor in celebration. Conference officials hope that the final scene - of Delaware celebrating its first CAA tournament title and first NCAA tournament berth since 1999 -- will be replayed and endure in the minds of Baltimoreans. They want those final images to help sell the tournament when it returns to Baltimore next season.

As Hofstra coach Joe Mihalich directed the Pride's offense in the early minutes of his team's game with top-seeded Delaware, Blue Hens coach Monte Ross looked on with dismay. The game was less than 10 minutes in, but the fans inside Baltimore Arena could already sense an upset. But in the second-half, it was Mihalich raising his voice on the sideline. Despite falling behind 28-19 10 minutes into the first half, the Blue Hens used an 11-2 run to start the second-half to fend off a pesky Hofstra squad 87-76.
