- Alex Lachman hit a 43-yard field goal with no time left on the clock to lift visiting Johns Hopkins over Thomas More, 31-29, in the second round of the NCAA Division III playoffs Saturday. "I could tell by the sound it was good," Hopkins freshman long snapper Reid Vanderlinden said. "I looked up as it went past the line and knew it was going through." The win marks Hopkins' second upset of a previously undefeated team. The Blue Jays (10-2) handed Hampden Sydney (10-1) a 23-7 loss in the opening round Nov. 21 and moved beyond the first round for the first time in school history.

The 56 points kicker Chris Moller posted last season to lead Morgan State included 10 field goals in 16 attempts. This fall has been a more trying time for the redshirt sophomore. Moller has converted just 4-of-10 field goals thus far for the Bears (3-3 overall and 2-1 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), but three of those attempts were blocked, a deficiency in the blocking that worries coach Lee Hull. “It concerns me a lot because you can't pinpoint just one area,” he said Tuesday during his weekly conference call arranged by the league.

Chris Moller made a 38-yard field goal with 28 seconds left in the game to lift Morgan State (2-2, 1-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) to a 38-35 victory over Howard (1-3, 0-1) in the New York Urban League Football Classic on Saturday in East Rutherford, N.J. Morgan State opened a 14-0 lead, but Howard rallied with two scoring drives, including a 1-yard run by quarterback Greg McGhee with 5:04 left in the first half. The Bears broke the 14-all halftime tie by adding three touchdowns in the third quarter, two by Herb Walker Jr. But the Bison had one scoring drive in the third and two touchdowns in the fourth to tie the game at 35 with 2:27 left.

Like many of his teammates in Towson's 27-24 stunning loss to Maine in the Colonial Athletic Association opener for both teams Saturday night, Sam Hurwitz had an unsteady performance. The junior kicker converted all three of his extra-point attempts and easily nailed a 25-yard field goal in the first quarter. But he also had a 45-yard try that went outside the right upright in the fourth quarter that preceded the Black Bears' eventual game-winning touchdown. Hurwitz, who has connected on four of six field goals this season, converted a career-long 39-yard field goal in the Tigers' 31-20 victory over North Carolina Central on Sept.

This time, the late game heartbreak belonged to the New England Patriots and wide left turned into just right. Rookie kicker Justin Tucker barely kept a 27-yard field goal inside the right upright as time expired to give the Ravens a frantic 31-30 comeback victory Sunday night in front of an announced 71,269 at M&T Bank Stadium. “What would be a better story than the one you saw?,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.  Trailing by nine points with seven minutes, 29 seconds to play, Joe Flacco threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Torrey Smith with 4:01 left, and the Ravens' fifth-year quarterback then led another drive in the final two minutes to set up Tucker for the game winner.

Redemption, and admittedly a little bit of relief, found Navy placekicker Nick Sloan Saturday afternoon in Annapolis. Looking at a potential game-winning 30-yard field goal attempt with a second left on the clock at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Sloan did his best to erase the memory of missing an extra point in the second overtime last week at Toledo, as well as dismissing what a few of the coaches on the Pittsburgh sideline were saying about...

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker clutched the football Sunday afternoon as he headed up the tunnel into the locker room. It was worth keeping after Tucker delivered the game-winning field goal on a 46-yard kick to seal the Ravens' 20-17 overtime victory Sunday over the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium. Long snapper Morgan Cox sprinted over to secure the ball for Tucker after it sailed through the uprights. "That was the fastest I've ever seen Morgan run," Tucker said.

Foregoing conventional wisdom in wet conditions, the Metro squad adopted a pass-first approach Saturday in the 18th annual Baltimore Touchdown Club Senior All-Star game. That decision, plus the accurate leg of River Hill kicker Alex Potocko, led the Metro team to a 15-7 win over the Baltimore group. The victory extends the Metro squad's series lead to 10-8, after losing the first three matchups from 1996 to 1998. "It's a passing game. You've got talented skill kids," said Metro head coach Steve Turnbaugh, of Hereford.

A second straight fourth-quarter comeback gave Morgan State a second straight win Saturday. But this one came down even closer to the wire. A week after a Bears touchdown with 26 seconds remaining secured a narrow win over Hampton, kicker Chris Moller made a go-ahead 27-yard field goal with 1.9 seconds left for a thrilling 24-23 victory over North Carolina A&T. Trailing the Aggies (5-4, 2-4 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) led 23-14 in the fourth quarter, Morgan (4-6, 4-2) stormed back before an announced 6,478 at Hughes Stadium.

Lee Hull didn't need any convincing that his Morgan State defense was physical. What he had been waiting for was proof that the unit could stop opposing offenses. Hull got what he wanted in the Bears' 28-3 rout of Bowie State at Hughes Stadium on Saturday. A defense that had surrendered a combined 60 points and 53 first downs in back-to-back losses allowed just a first-quarter field goal and 19 first downs overall. After the Bulldogs (0-2) went 69 yards on their first drive to convert a 37-yard field goal, they had only one longer series, and that ended in a fumble Morgan State (1-2)

The Morgan State men's basketball program has led the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in scoring in three of the past five seasons. And the team has assumed that familiar position this winter. Four games into the league schedule, the Bears (6-10 overall and 4-0 in the conference) have averaged a MEAC-best 81.8 points and 15.8 assists per game and shot a league-high 48.6 percent on 121 of 249 shooting. Coach Todd Bozeman credits an evolving comfort level among the players for the offense's emergence.

Something highly unusual happened Sunday involving Ravens kicker Justin Tucker . He missed a field-goal attempt for the first time in months. Tucker's 37-yard try sailed wide left during the fourth quarter of the Ravens' 41-7 loss to the New England Patriots at M&T Bank Stadium, ending the NFL's longest active streak at 33 consecutive field goals. This marks the first time that Tucker has missed a kick since misfiring twice during a Sept. 15 home game against the Cleveland Browns.

Ravens fans giddy from Justin Tucker's stunning last-minute, third-longest-game-winning field goal in the history of the NFL got a treat while on the road last week. Billboards along Interstates 95, 895 and 83 proclaim "Legatron > Megatron" and "In Tucker we Trust" in celebration of the Ravens' 18-16 victory over the Detroit Lions. Clear Channel Outdoor posted the messages Tuesday morning to the electronic billboards they own. FYI, for those who aren't football fans, "Legatron" is a nickname that honors Tucker's powerful kicking skills.

When you look back on the way the Ravens won their last three games, it's hard not to start thinking in cosmic terms. This invariably leads to the use of words like "destiny" and "karma" to explain the strange and wonderful confluence of events that saved this season - at least so far. The players and coaches prefer the word "faith," though more in the context of confidence in each other than divine providence. No one is running around proclaiming that God is a Ravens fan, but you still get the feeling there is a team-wide belief that good things will happen to those who have trust in whatever it is that keeps pulling them back from the brink.

When running back Ray Rice plunged into the middle of the line on third-and-10 for a gain of 2 yards just before Tucker's dramatic boot, it didn't seem particularly significant. But given that kucker Justin Tucker's kick narrowly cleared the crossbar by a few yards, every bit of Rice's yardage was necessary. "I ain't going to take no credit for the kick, but my 2 yards probably helped out a little bit," Rice said of the longest kick in a dome in NFL history. "I think it was a good call, a safe call.

It seems improbable, but the Ravens are more than willing to let Justin Tucker kick them all the way to the playoffs. Tucker's sixth field goal of the night, this one from 61 yards with 38 seconds to play, pushed the Ravens to their biggest victory of the season, an 18-16 win over the Detroit Lions in front of a raucous and shocked crowd of 64,742 at Ford Field on Monday night. The longest field goal in Ravens' history - and the longest ever in NFL history indoors - secured the Ravens' fourth straight victory and keeps them in control of their playoff future.
