With her North team leading the South by four goals with four minutes remaining in Saturday's Girls Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic, Tatum Coffey maintained her composure as a double team rushed toward her. After tallying five goals — all unassisted — the midfielder from Toms River, N.J., sat one goal shy of tying the single game mark set last year by Kaitlyn Brosco, a tidbit she was unaware of at the time. Coffey, who would be named the game's MVP, looked up and connected with a wide-open Lindsay Toppe on the left side of the fan. Toppe drove toward the crease and pocketed the game's final goal with 3:49 left as the North team dominated second half action, outscoring the South eight to three in the last half, to capture the Classic for the fifth time in six years, 15-10, at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson.

Ann and Dominic Wiker loved life in their Federal Hill home. As a professional couple in their 30s, the neighborhood was ideal - they could walk to most attractions, shops and restaurants. It seemed there was always something fun going on outside their door. Then parenthood happened, and with it came the idea of moving to the suburbs. They would move, but they wouldn't leave Federal Hill. Nine years later, the Wikers - mom, dad, 9-year old Alex and 7-year old Tommy - have, to their delight, become a poster family for raising children in an urban environment.

AT FIRST GLANCE, computer scientists and plant researchers don't have much in common, but these days, they're both talking about the dangers of a monoculture. The term comes from the world of biology, where it refers a single species of vegetation that covers a large area. A pine forest is a monoculture; so is the "perfect" lawn, or a county planted with one type of cotton. When everything goes right, monocultures can be efficient. A farmer who grows only one crop has to buy one type of seed and fertilizer, one type of pesticide.

DETROIT -- As left-handed reliever Andrew Miller spoke to the media in the clubhouse hallway Sunday night after the Orioles' American League Division Series clincher in Detroit, he was interrupted by a bellow. "You did it, Andrew," said the excited voice. "You did it. " Miller smiled and shook hands with the giddy man to his right: Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette, who acquired Miller in a July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline deal with the Boston Red Sox. Whether you're an Orioles fan or you just happen to run the organization, it's hard not to be pumped about what Miller has done in his two-plus months in Baltimore.

QUOTATION from Defense Secretary William Perry: "During the Cold War, the U.S. had technological superiority that allowed us to maintain deterrence. But during Desert Storm we had technological dominance that allowed us to achieve a stunning victory quickly and with minimum casualties. Now that we have experienced dominance, we like it and we plan to keep it." [Italics ours.]Mr. Perry's words to the 1996 "long gray line" at West Point should come as a reality check for the "new NATO" proclaimed at a meeting of foreign ministers in Berlin last week.

IN THE RUN-UP to the much-anticipated Quadrennial Defense Review, Defense Secretary William Cohen had better be careful not to build expections beyond his capacity to deliver.There may have been nothing new in his assertion last week that "we want to dominate across the full spectrum of conflict, so that if we ever have to fight, we will win on our terms." After all, his predecessor, William Perry, had said that "now that we have experienced dominance, we like it and plan to keep it."But as a senator, Mr. Cohen developed a reputation as an innovative thinker.

There is nothing more demoralizing in pro football than when an offensive line can physically dominate a team and sustain long scoring drives. The Ravens' often maligned offensive line, consisting of tackles Jonathan Ogden, rookie Marshal Yanda, guards Jason Brown, rookie Ben Grubbs and center Mike Flynn, pounded the New England Patriots last night. And there was nothing the Patriots could do about it. The Ravens' offensive line opened huge holes for running back Willis McGahee, who had 134 rushing yards at the end of the third quarter.

CHICAGO -- Sen. Barack Obama's announcement yesterday that he has raised nearly as much money as Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton this year, bringing in $25 million for his presidential bid from a wide array of contributors, shakes up the race and makes it clear that no Democrat will attain the sort of early dominance that the former first lady had been trying to establish. Clinton, who raised $26 million in January, February and March, might re-examine her strategy for fundraising and otherwise building support, which had been based on the idea that she was the overwhelming favorite for the Democratic nomination.

Horsemen call it "heart," or "courage," or "gameness." They say it gives the best thoroughbreds the desire, the deep reserves to win. "When they're running and digging, they give you everything they've got, and you can really feel it," said Maryland jockey Mario Pino. "Their heads are straight out, their ears straight down on their heads, and you can feel it through the reins and through your body." Trainers and breeders know gameness when they see it. But it's impossible to measure and hard to teach.

John Harbaugh walked toward the back of the bench to exhort the fans, wagged four fingers in the air to signal the start of the final quarter and welcomed big defensive tackle Haloti Ngata to the sideline with a flying chest bump that left the Ravens' head coach falling backward.   Despite one of the most trying weeks in franchise history, Harbaugh told general manager Ozzie Newsome on Wednesday that he sensed his team was ready to play well and was he ever prophetic. The Ravens broke the trend of close games against their biggest rival by dominating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 26-6, in front of an announced 71,181 at M&T Bank Stadium and a prime-time television audience.

Douglass' running backs rolled up the yardage Friday afternoon, but they didn't take the credit for the 48-6 win over Northwestern in a Baltimore City Division II football game. "My offensive line is the key to this," said senior running back Maurice McFadden, who ran for two touchdowns. "We've got a lot of offensive linemen who work hard day in and day out. Hats off to them. They did this. " The host Ducks (2-0, 1-0 division) dominated the line of scrimmage and scored on seven of their nine possessions.

Police have charged two suspects in the killing of a man in East Baltimore last month. Dominic Deschamps, 31, and Che McDowell, 23, were arrested in the Aug. 5 shooting of 46-year-old Bruce Paige, police said. At least one witness told police the two suspects ran up to Paige in the 500 block of N. Monroe St., Deschamps said "kill that [expletive]," and McDowell shot him in the head and torso, according to charging documents. Detectives found blood smears and damage to a black Nissan Sentra parked at the scene, and a trail of blood down the street and a blue baseball cap where Paige had collapsed, the documents said.

I love "Breaking Bad," and even I didn't think it would win as big as it did Monday night at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. Best drama, best actor (Bryan Cranston), best supporting actor (Aaron Paul), best supporting actress (Anna Gunn) and best writing (Moira Walley-Beckett). Did show runner Vince Gilligan & Co. ever go out on a high. And it is all the more impressive when you consider the incredible level of competition for each of those awards. I picked it as best drama, and I picked Gunn and Paul as best supporting actress and actor.

Orioles starter Chris Tillman dominated the Seattle Mariners lineup again Sunday, but he wants everyone to know that it's nothing personal. Of course, Tillman came over to the Orioles in the 2008 trade with the Mariners that also brought All-Star center fielder Adam Jones and three others for left-hander Erik Bedard - a move that is widely credited for being the watershed moment in the club's return to prominence after 14 consecutive losing seasons....

The Jacksonville Jaguars arrive at PSINet Stadium today with a certain swagger, a two-year reign over the AFC Central Division, and a long-running theme of dominance over the Ravens. By nightfall, either the swagger and the dominance will be shattered, or the reign will be lodged unmistakably in the Ravens' throats. D-day - as in domination - is here with this Week 2 confrontation. But the Jaguars' eight-game winning streak over the Ravens is only part of the bigger picture. The Ravens want what the Jaguars have, and that runs all the way to their position of prominence in the AFC. "I don't think there's a statement to the league to be made," said Ravens safety Rod Woodson, "but we know if we want to win the AFC Central, get into the playoffs and be a contender, we've got to beat these guys.

WIMBLEDON, England - When Lleyton Hewitt, No. 2 men's tennis player in the world, discovered he was seeded No. 3 for the Wimbledon championships, he was less than pleased. If the reason why wasn't clear enough before his semifinal match on Centre Court yesterday, Roger Federer made it so. The Swiss, seeking his third consecutive men's title, continued his dominance over Hewitt - his dominance over the entire men's field, really - winning in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (4), in yet another Wimbledon clinic.

Orioles relief pitchers Darren O'Day and Zach Britton effectively made Wednesday night's 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels at Camden Yards a seven-inning game. Right-hander Kevin Gausman left the game after seven strong innings -- the first 4 2/3 of which were perfect -- allowing O'Day and Britton to handle the final six outs. They did so in workmanlike fashion. O'Day retired his three batters -- two by strikeout -- on just 16 pitches. Britton surrendered one hit in the ninth, but managed his 21st save of the season after another 16 pitches.

Boys' Latin junior Dominic Maggio has orally committed to play football at Wake Forest in 2016. Maggio, a kicker and punter for the Lakers, was an All-Metro first-team selection last season after he averaged 44.7 yards per punt. He placed 11 punts inside his opponents' 20-yard line and thumped a 62-yard punt in a game vs. St. Paul's. "He's so good we're going to have to change our coverage," Boys' Latin coach Ritchie Schell said last season . "Sometimes, he out-kicks our coverage.
