A Westminster volleyball player shown returning a spike was incorrectly identified in a photo caption in the Friday, Oct. 9 Carroll edition. The correct name of the player should have been Jody Van Doren.Michele Crouse came away from a post-game team talk and threw her hands in the air. It was as if she were saying she couldn't explain what she had just witnessed.The Westminster coach had seen her team, seemingly on its way to an easy three-game sweep of visiting, winless Frederick, have to pull off a late rally to escape with a 15-5, 15-0, 10-15, 10-15, 15-12 victory last night.

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.

In a move that is scheduled to begin for the 2006 season, the two top-ranked teams in NCAA Division I-A college football will play the national championship game a week or so after the four major bowls are completed. The added game will rotate annually among the sites of the four Bowl Championship Series games. The four BCS games currently are the Fiesta Bowl, in Tempe, Ariz.; the Sugar Bowl, in New Orleans, the Orange Bowl, in Miami, and the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. Other cities had applied to play host to the fifth bowl but were rejected.

This volleyball match was something like survival of the fittest.North Carroll and Thomas Johnson punched andcounter-punched and scratched and clawed their way through a five-game marathon before the Panthers emerged with a 15-7, 16-14, 11-15, 7-15, 15-13 victory over the Patriots.After dueling for two hours and 20 minutes at North Carroll yesterday, the Central Maryland Conference match came down to a hard Kandi Lippy serve off Erin Grimes' hands for a 14-13 North Carroll lead in the fifth game and a Katy Wilhelm kill for the winning point.

When last night's volleyball match between Western and Poly reached a fifth game, Poly setter Joi Upton said it all came down to which team's desire to win would overcome fatigue. "We wanted it more. We were so mad that we had to take it five games," Upton said. "We were tired, but we kept going. I didn't let my tiredness get to me, because that's how bad I wanted it." The Engineers gritted out a win in the final game to upend the defending Baltimore City-champion Doves, 17-25, 25-12, 28-26, 28-30, 15-11, in a grueling, non-division match that lasted nearly 2 1/2 hours in Poly's toasty gym. Elisha Clayton had five kills and Upton had four as well as 21 assists as the host Engineers (5-0)

Catch Julie Allen in the right mood on the volleyball court and she will put on a show anybody would enjoy watching.Except the opposition.The Severna Park senior can hit the ball so hard that it is sometimes dangerous for the players on the other side of the net."There are certain times in a match when I say to myself on every ball 'This one's going down,' " said Allen. "The most exciting thing about playing the game is pounding the ball on the floor. I kind of grunt when I hit the ball and that adds a little to it."

Orioles right fielder Chris Davis continued his recent tear at the plate Monday night in the Orioles' 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. Davis' two-run homer in the ninth off Rays reliever Kyle Farnsworth, his career-high 32nd of the season, was his sixth homer in five games. He's now homered in five consecutive games, the first Oriole to accomplish the feat since Melvin Mora on Sept. 30, 2005 to April 5, 2006. It's also largest consecutive-game homer streak in the same season since Reggie Jackson homered in six straight games on July 18-23, 1976.

Turnovers, rushed shots, foul trouble and a kidney stone. Maryland coach Mark Turgeon endured it all during one harrowing Sunday in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off that ended with the coach blasting players for repeatedly not running plays correctly and for "a lack of commitment there to what we're trying to do. " Turgeon felt ill enough that he had to cancel a media session the day before the game, and it was questionable whether he'd be on the sideline Sunday...

First-place Monterrey La RaZa scored 16 of the game's first 18 points and handed the visiting Blast its fifth consecutive Major Indoor Soccer League loss, 25-10.

Monterrey's Angel Hernandez and Baltimore's Sagu were ejected in the fourth quarter for their parts in a post-goal altercation.

Four starts into what some might call a solid rookie season, Marshal Yanda is still searching for the perfect performance. "I'd say I still have a long, long way to go to be the player I want to be," the right offensive tackle said yesterday. "I've got a lot of learning to do. There's still stuff out there that I'm not 100 percent completely down with. I've just got to keep on improving, and it's going to be a long road. I need to get better every day. That's pretty much my goal." It's the kind of statement that the Ravens have come to expect from the modest Yanda, who a year ago could barely contemplate making an NFL roster.

The Orioles got pretty much what they expected last night from the major league debut of Radhames Liz. There were moments of great promise, such as the hard slider that he struck out Michael Cuddyer with in the second inning, or the high 97 mph fastball that he threw past Torii Hunter in the fourth inning. But there were also plenty of times where Liz reminded the Orioles that he was just a 24-year-old kid, pitching above Double-A for the first time in his career. Liz made a few too many mistakes and his offense gave him little support as the Orioles dropped their fifth straight game, falling 8-1 to the Minnesota Twins in front of an announced 28,700 that braved a nearly two-hour rain delay.

COLLEGE PARK -- After wining the first two games of yesterday's state Class 2A volleyball final at Ritchie Coliseum, the No. 2 Reservoir Gators got a little ahead of themselves.
