One of the reasons Seth Walker wanted to come to Calvert Hall was because of the school's spirited rivalry with Loyola Blakefield. Walker, who was home-schooled last year, not only got his first opportunity to play against the Dons on Wednesday, he also scored one of the biggest goals in the No. 7 Cardinals' young season. The sophomore got the game-winner in No. 7 Calvert Hall's 1-0 victory over No. 3 Loyola in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference matchup.

For the first time in 2014, Seahawk Stadium will play host to something other than snow. No. 18 St. Mary's (3-4) will tangle with Albright (2-3) on Saturday in what will be the team's home opener in St. Mary's City. The Seahawks were scheduled to play host to Muhlenberg on March 8, which would have been their first home contest after four consecutive games on the road. But a storm that dumped 5 inches made Seahawk Stadium unplayable, and both schools agreed to play the game at Muhlenberg.

The UMBC men's basketball team has protected its turf at RAC Arena, winning four of five games this season in Catonsville. On the flipside, however, the Retrievers are winless away from home, going 0-8 en route to a 4-9 record. Coach Aki Thomas knows that if UMBC harbors any hope of advancing deep into the America East tournament, the team must begin winning on the road. “It's important,” he said Tuesday. “I'm glad that we're able to take care of home for the most part, but we're going to have to steal a few on the road.

What the Ravens will try to accomplish over the next eight weeks is neither unprecedented nor all that uncommon. Since 1990, the year the NFL went to the 12-team playoff format, nine teams have made the playoffs after starting the season 3-5, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Washington Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals both did it last year, each winning seven of their final eight regular-season games to head into the postseason at 10-6. The Ravens have shown little in recent weeks to suggest that they are capable of a similar turnaround.

The Navy men's soccer team last finished with a winning regular-season record in 2010. Before that, it was 2005. With four games left before postseason play, the Midshipmen (9-3-2, 5-0-0 Patriot League) have already ensured that they will finish north of .500. And a good portion of the team's success traces back to the defense. Senior goalkeeper Gavin Snyder (Severna Park) leads Division I in goals-against average (0.25 per game) and save percentage (.933). Junior center back Joseph Greenspan, sophomore center back Derek Vogel and senior defensemen Nick Dubee and Blake Busse have joined Snyder to help Navy outscore opponents 17-2 during the team's current eight-game winning streak.

Rob Guida ended an eight-game absence from an unspecified injury by resuming his starting role in No. 15 Johns Hopkins' 7-4 victory over No. 4 Maryland at Byrd Stadium in College Park on Saturday. But there was a price he paid. By returning, the junior midfielder eliminated the idea of sitting out the remainder of the season and applying for a medical redshirt, which would have added another year of eligibility. Instead, he will finish out the three remaining games on the schedule and then have a final year of eligibility in 2014.

Ray Rice knifed through the heart of the New England Patriots defense, into the end zone and into our collective memories, his 83-yard touchdown run in the 2009 playoffs quickly becoming one of the most unforgettable plays in Ravens history and in his young career. On that frigid afternoon in Foxborough, Rice rushed for 159 yards and two touchdowns, carrying the Ravens offense and their hobbled quarterback, Joe Flacco, to a stunning wild-card win. It was the only time in eight career playoff games that Rice topped 70 rushing yards, and his two fumbles in Sunday's win over the Indianapolis Colts gave him five for his postseason career.

Now that the Ravens have officially finished up the first half of their schedule, let's take a look at the snap counts for their players over the first eight games of the season -- and since we last checked on these totals a month ago -- to see which new trends are developing.
