There's more to sport than winning. There are life lessons. There's the camaraderie. There's the fun of it all. But there's also the thrill of victory, and it's a thrill known many times this season by the girls on the Aberdeen High School basketball team, most recently over the weekend when they won the Maryland Class 3A state high school championship game. The Eagles had a spectacular season, defeating just about every opponent they faced. Their only defeat came at the hands of Riverdale Baptist, a team ranked sixth in the nation by USA Today . Even in the team's one loss there was consolation to be found as forward TK Fowlkes told the Baltimore Sun : "It's a great learning experience.

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?

River Hill All-Metro forward Alex Hamer did her part, winning the right side before sending a perfect cross to the middle with less than three minutes left at Centennial. She knew exactly who would be there to handle the rest. It was junior midfielder Jessica Hopkins who made the perfect run before emphatically heading home the difference as the No. 2 Hawks were able to withstand a considerable challenge to claim a 2-1 come-from-behind win over the Eagles in Howard County. River Hill improved to 8-2 and 7-0 in league play, while the Eagles fell to 5-4-1 and 4-3. The game was played on even terms most of the way with the Eagles taking a 1-0 lead early in the second half before Hamer and Hopkins dominated the final minutes to rally the Hawks.

RAVENS PASSING GAME: What will quarterback Joe Flacco do for an encore? A week after lighting up the Cincinnati Bengals in one of the best performances of his career, Flacco brings the Ravens' suddenly explosive offense to Lincoln Financial Field, a short drive from where he grew up. Eight players caught passes in the Ravens' opener, led by tight end Dennis Pitta. Flacco figures to get far less time to operate against a fast and aggressive Eagles defense . EAGLES PASSING GAME: Michael Vick played one of the worst games of his career against the Cleveland Browns last week, completing just 29 of 56 passes for 317 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.

Posters in the locker room, stricter guidelines on the field, investments in research — all of those are good things. But if the NFL wants to be taken seriously on the issue of treating concussions, it has to do more. Namely, no more Philadelphia-type fiascos. A look back to Sunday: In the second quarter against the Packers, two Eagles suffered concussions in rapid-fire succession. First, quarterback Kevin Kolb was sacked from behind and his head was driven into the turf.

Kevin Cowherd Ravens 24, Eagles 19 First away game is always tough. And Philly crowds are as warm and fuzzy as the exercise yard at San Quentin. But Joe Flacco and the new-look Ravens' offense will prevail. Edward Lee Eagles 27, Ravens 21 The Ravens' offensive line will face its toughest challenge with the Eagles' depth in their defensive front, disrupting Joe Flacco's timing with his receivers. And the defense will miss outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, who would have contained quarterback Michael Vick.

The Philadelphia Eagles have claimed D.J. Jones off waivers from the Ravens, who waived the undrafted rookie offensive tackle from Nebraska before their win over the Houston Texans in the AFC divisional round. Jones was waived on Jan. 14 so the Ravens could promote linebacker Josh Bynes from their practice squad. Jones, 23, a 6-foot-5, 315-pound tackle, was signed by the Miami Dolphins before the 2011 season. After the Dolphins waived him from their practice squad on Oct. 17, the Ravens signed him to theirs two days later.

An early goal by No. 4 Loyola Blakefield's Gavin Barger put top-ranked McDonogh in the unfamiliar position of playing from behind for the first time this season. The Eagles responded by dominating possession and then scoring a goal in each half for a 2-1 victory in a key Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game. Nicolas Brown had a goal and an assist for McDonogh, which has been scored on just three times in nine games this season. "We talked all year how there was going to be difficult situations in this league this year," Eagles coach Brandon Quaranta said.

Players on the McDonogh field hockey team say they never openly talked about last year's overtime loss to Archbishop Spalding in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference final. In Thursday's rematch, however, the Eagles left little doubt that it was on the top of their minds. Led by a goal and assist by junior Brindi Griffin, No. 2 McDonogh stormed out of the gate to build a three-goal lead early in the second half, then held off a furious comeback attempt by top-ranked Spalding to preserve a 3-2 win, ending the Cavaliers' 17-game winning streak.

Every season, the No. 1 McDonogh boys soccer team has a senior primed to take command of the middle of the field. He's expected to provide leadership, be the settling influence and also make game-changing plays. An All-Metro first-team midfielder as a junior, Connor Smith has taken on the lead role with last year's All-Metro Player of the Year George Campbell now at Maryland. So far, so good. In Wednesday's showdown at No. 4 St. Paul's - a rematch of last year's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title game - Smith's dynamic play was the difference as he scored two goals and added an assist to lead the defending champions to a 3-1 win over the Crusaders.

Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring" alerted the nation decades ago to the depredations of DDT on the nation's songbird and eagle populations. But DDT is not the only killer of birds.Carbofuran, made by the FMC Corp. and sold commercially as Furadan, has replaced DDT as the chief chemical threat to eagles and migratory birds since the 1972 banning of DDT. The poison is intended for pests, but some birds mistake its granules for food. Eagles and larger avian predators don't make that mistake, but meet the same end when they consume prey that has ingested carbofuran.
