Damascus, playing behind almost from the outset, took a one-point lead in the final three minutes and used the confidence borne of success to put away a homestanding Liberty team that is still working on that phase of its game.Favored Damascus (19-5) did not expect to have to climb out of an early 17-6 deficit, but the Hornets were there at the end for a 39-36 victory over the Lions (13-10) in the first Class 3A, West Region action for both teams.The Lions must be wondering how their shooting touches could have collectively evaporated, going from 70 percent in the first quarter to practically zero for the last eight minutes.

The Catonsville girls soccer team spent most of Saturday's Class 4A state title game valiantly defending against talented Walt Whitman's persistent attack. Eventually, it became too big a burden. For more than 70 minutes, the No. 5 Comets turned away everything the Vikings from Montgomery County sent their way, protecting their goal with stubborn determination and poise. But Walt Whitman finally broke through with two goals in the final eight minutes - both on headers by senior forward Anna Gurney - to come away with a 2-0 win over Catonsville at UMBC Stadium.

Anxiety is written across their faces, yet these singles are doing their best not to let it show. An attractive blond discreetly fixes her makeup near the bar, while a shy businessman self-consciously nurses his beer. At least two people, the couple curled up on the leather sofa, seem to be hitting it off. They've each paid the $28.88 registration fee, put on their nametags and discreetly checked out the crowd. All that's left to do is wait. "It's time to try something new," says Debbie Caler, 28, a marketing coordinator from Columbia.

One day, not long from now, this season will seem like nothing more than a foggy unpleasant memory to the Towson basketball team. With a highly touted recruiting class on the way and a state-of-the-art arena in the pipeline this program's better days surely lie ahead. For now, however, the nightmare that is the 2011-12 season continues to fester, and the latest example was Wednesday's 66-49 loss to unheralded William & Mary before a small gathering at the Towson Center. The Tigers (0-17, 0-5 Colonial Athletic Association)

At least three days a week, right around noon, Joanne Milani parks her Chevy Astro in downtown Catonsville and takes care of a quick bit of business. Picks up dry cleaning? Gets cash from the ATM? Nope. She squeezes in a workout. Really squeezes: It takes her less than 10 minutes to complete a full-body routine. And that's with the clock running from car door to gym floor and back again. "I put a nickel in the parking meter every time I go, and the meter has never expired on me," says Milani, a 35-year-old, typically harried mother of four.

All season long, the Arundel Wildcats lived by the pass. Last night in the Class 4A state championship game at M&T Bank Stadium, they died by the pass in a 36-30 loss to Quince Orchard of Montgomery County. The Cougars won their second state championship, with the other in 1991. The Wildcats, who won a state title in 1975, were playing in their first final since 1979. Quince Orchard quarterback Jaron Morrison connected with Travis Hawkins on a 78-yard touchdown pass with 1:30 remaining to give the Cougars a 30-23 lead and cap a 16-point comeback in the fourth quarter.

Catonsville's field hockey team used a little bit of offense and a whole lot of defense to orchestrate a 1-0 victory over No. 10 Towson yesterday in a battle of teams unbeaten in Baltimore County league play. Shelby Polk scored on a crossing pass from Abby Sneeringer early in the second half. Then the Comets took a staunch defensive stand in the final eight minutes when Towson, which managed just one shot in the first 52 minutes, maintained nearly constant pressure on their scoring circle.

Home has been where the wins reside for the Navy basketball team. That point was driven home again last night when the Midshipmen concluded a perfect three-game Alumni Hall stand with a 90-71 victory over Coastal Carolina before 1,530. Navy's only loss in six games in Annapolis was to a strong Ohio University team; otherwise the team is 0-7. "It helped to have this team get back here and regroup after three losses in Hawaii," Navy coach Don DeVoe said. "It makes all the difference in terms of confidence.

ATLANTA -- Michigan State made like a vampire against Gonzaga last night. The Spartans bit into the Bulldogs and sucked the life right out of them. Gonzaga, the little Jesuit school from Spokane, Wash., that has defied the odds to become a Sweet 16 regular, led defending national champion Michigan State after 25 minutes in their South Regional semifinal at the Georgia Dome. Spurred on by coach Tom Izzo's jibe that they were playing like "wimps," the top-seeded Spartans denied the Bulldogs a basket for eight minutes and went on a 13-2 run to pull away to a 77-62 victory.

U.S. coach April Heinrichs called it "the perfect tuneup match for the Olympics." Russian coach Yuri Bystritsky, whose young, inexperienced team had just gotten hammered, 7-1, by the Americans at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, said, "I think we saw future Olympic champions here." The romp before 21,278 provided evidence that the veteran U.S. women's soccer team, formalized in Annapolis just last week, is approaching the emotional and physical peak last seen a year ago at the Women's World Cup. Heinrichs, who insisted afterward that she is "still eight or nine players away" from choosing an opening lineup in Sydney, saw 10 of the 18 players she picked figure in the scoring, including the team's oldest and youngest players.
