Rescuers plucked nine people from the sea near Ocean City Saturday morning after their boat sank, according to the Coast Guard.

BOWIE -- Failing to cash in on golden opportunities last JTC season haunted the Bowie State football program all summer, and coach Sherman Wood had vowed during the preseason to find a remedy.Had the Bulldogs found the cure, they never would have suffered a 12-7 loss yesterday in a homecoming game against Elizabeth City State. Bowie State found itself inside the Vikings' 10-yard line four times, but mustered only one touchdown -- a 3-yard run by Tyrone Bruton with 7: 54 left in the game."We had so many opportunities to score points," said Wood, whose team fell to 2-4 overall and 1-2 in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

Towson (3-5) @ Maine (2-6) Time -- Noon Site -- Alfond Stadium, Orono, Maine Radio -- 1570 AM Outlook -- Turnovers have been one of the major reasons Towson fell to 3-5 after a 2-0 start, with a minus seven turnover ratio spelling a lot of the doom for the team. The Tigers are coming off a bye week and have turned the ball over 20 times, leading to 78 points for their opponents. But the other part of that turnover equation, which has Towson scoring just 16 points off 13 turnovers, is equally as distressing for a team that entered the season with high hopes in the Colonial Athletic Association.
