Two new synthetic turf fields unveiled this week at Kinder Farm Park will transform the Millersvillle facility into the new home of Severna Park High School athletics - at least for the foreseeable future. Community leaders, school officials and student athletes gathered at the complex Monday to dedicate the fields, which along with four additional grass surfaces will accommodate many of the Falcons' fall and spring sports teams while construction is underway on the new Severna Park High School.

Opportunistic on offense and dogged on defense, the Broadneck boys soccer team accomplished something against Severna Park on Thursday that no other team has since 2012. The No. 11 Bruins got a goal from junior midfielder Ford Murphy midway through the second half and sturdy work on defense the rest of the way to earn a 2-1 win over the defending Class 4A state champion Falcons, ending Severna Park's 27-game unbeaten streak. Severna Park went 17-0-2 last season. The No. 2 Falcons, now 7-1-1 and 5-1-1 in Anne Arundel, finally found their match Thursday at Kinder Farm Park as the Bruins improved to 8-1-1 and stayed undefeated in county play at 7-0. Senior defender Will Hankins, assigned to mark the Falcons' All-Metro senior forward Daniel Kwon, was understandably tired following the game.

1. Falcons running back Michael Turner runs wild. The Ravens have had trouble with power running backs in the past. Turner has been on a tear, gaining 100 yards in three of his past four games. 2. Ravens can't stop Atlanta in red zone. In their past two games, the Falcons have scored seven touchdowns in eight trips inside the 20-yard line. The Ravens have the NFL's fourth-best red-zone defense. 3. Ravens get into an early hole. The Falcons, who have averaged 30.7 points in four home games this season, are dangerous with a lead.

Falcons could run table Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times Were they to play each other, I'd give the Texans the edge over the Falcons. But Atlanta will hang on to its unblemished record longer, particularly with Texans linebacker Brian Cushing out for the year. The Texans have a tougher remaining schedule, with games they could lose Sunday against the Packers, Nov. 11 at Chicago and Dec. 10 at New England. Of course, there's also the possibility of another team pulling off an upset, the way the Colts rode a wave of emotion and knocked off the Packers.

Severna Park junior Madison Thomas seemed almost to be dancing, as she weaved down the field in the 27th minute of the first half of the Falcons' Maryland Public Secondary School Athletic Association's Class 4A state semifinal match against No. 13 Dulaney on Monday night.. Dulaney's Lions had held their ground and played tough for the first 15 minutes, but then Thomas had broken through, and with the Falcons now leading by three goals, No. 3 Severna Park was well on its way to a 5-0 victory and a 24th appearance in the state championship finals.

Kevin Cowherd Ravens 24, Falcons 21: Ravens coaches overcome short week of preparation by buying 16 cases of Red Bull at Sam's Club. Jamison Hensley Falcons 21-10: The power running of Michael Turner and the home dominance of Matt Ryan (he's 17-1 at the Georgia Dome) are too much for the Ravens to overcome. Edward Lee Falcons 23, Ravens 20: The Ravens should remain competitive for a majority of the game, but a physical win against the Miami Dolphins and a short week of recovery will be enough for the host Falcons to escape with a narrow decision.

They'd just won a game against a team that arrived being billed -- actually, billing itself -- as the NFC's best. And yet Mike Smith, the head coach, characterized the Falcons' mood thusly: "We're 6-2, but there's some guys in that locker room who are ticked off because they know we haven't put together 60 minutes of football. " The good news is that the Falcons lead the NFC South and hold the best record in their conference. The better news is that they've done this much while working hard not to make the opponent feel bad about itself.

When Good Counsel visited No. 1 McDonogh in a highly anticipated girls soccer showdown Monday, some of the state's top talent was on display. With that, it only took a four-minute stretch in the first half for the home team's dynamic scoring tandem - juniors Bridgette Andrzejewski and Kia Rankin - to stand out. Andrzejewski found Rankin for the opening goal with 18 minutes left before intermission and, soon after, Rankin set up Andrzejewski for...

In Severna Park's season-opening win earlier this week, Falcons coach Tim Dunbar didn't like the way his players were executing. He decided to go back to the basics: passing, blocking and playing defense. The emphasis paid off big time for the fifth-ranked Falcons, as they out-hit and out-defensed top-ranked and visiting St. Paul's (0-2), 25-11, 25-16, 25-14, in a nonleague game. The Falcons (2-0) were led by junior setter Morgan Kline, who contributed 29 assists, 10 digs, and two aces.

Severna Park cruised to a 33-point victory over North County in a regular-season game in January, but the Falcons faced a much tougher battle when the two teams met again in a Class 4A East Region Section I playoff on Wednesday night.

Severna Park improved to 22-2 and stretched its winning streak to 15 with the victory.

Thursday's wrestling match was a good measuring stick for Winters Mill and host Owings Mills. For one, it was a step in the right direction. For another, maybe a little hiccup. The visiting Falcons (1-3) fell behind early but rallied to win 11 consecutive matches to defeat the No. 11 Eagles (3-2), 49-24. Both teams dropped matches to Leonardtown (14-1) before facing each other. "What you saw tonight were two historically strong teams in a rebuilding mode," said Winters Mill coach John Lowe, whose team won the Class 2A-1A state title last year.

Runner Of Year Ryan Forsyth Severna Park, senior Top-ranked Severna Park proved to be one of the most dominant teams in recent years, and Forsyth led the way. Forsyth was the Falcons' top runner throughout the season. His consistency was impressive as he broke five course records, even twice setting a new mark at Chaptico Regional Park this season. He kept getting better throughout the fall, ending the season on a strong note by pulling off the tough feat of winning the Anne Arundel County Class 4A East region and then the Class 4A state title.

For 48 minutes, Severna Park forward Daniel Kwon found himself constantly trailed by a Blake defender, with little space to create scoring chances in Friday night's Class 4A state championship game at UMBC. Kwon, however, found a seam early in the second half, took a short cross from Griffin Kowalewski and drove the ball with his left foot into the center of the goal to provide the No. 3 Falcons with a 1-0 victory and third state title in program history. "Griffin played a really good ball down the middle, I just faked it with my right and then put it away with my left foot," Kwon said about the goal.
