As the second half of Tuesday's boys soccer game between perennial state powers Fallston and visiting River Hill wore on, it became more and more apparent that a deciding goal would have to be earned through hard work and making the most of an opportunity. River Hill senior midfielder Tony Riso, whose tireless play in the middle epitomized the effort of both teams, proved to be the right player for the job in the game's closing minutes. With a free kick sent in by Jason Plumhoff lingering near Fallston's goal, Riso headed home the game-winner from a tough angle in close with less than four minutes to play, giving the No. 6 Hawks a hard-earned 2-1 win over the No. 5 Cougars.

Top-ranked Maryland went to its bag of tricks to pull out a narrow win over visiting Villanova on Friday night. The Terps employed a zone defense a few times during their 12-10 decision over the Wildcats at Byrd Stadium in College Park, and the tactic was especially welcoming in the final minutes of regulation. Sophomore midfielder Jack Curran's goal off a pass from sophomore attackman Tim Mulrenan with 5:02 left in the fourth quarter capped a 4-0 Villanova run in an 8:21 span, and the team needed just two goals to extend the game into overtime.

SILVER SPRING -- It was a battle of unbeatens, one of the Baltimore area's best against one of the Washington area's best.It was the experience and talent of Westminster, ranked 13th in the Baltimore metro area, against the quickness and size of Montgomery Blair, ranked 13th in the Washington metro poll.The result was a 63-51 victory for Westminster (10-0) over Blair (8-1) in a game that looked to be almost over in the final minutes of the third quarter when the Owls ran off to a 44-25 lead with 1:47 left.

Bryn Mawr's attackers put together one of the most accurate performances of this girls lacrosse season yesterday, shooting 13 of 19 to beat neighborhood rival Roland Park, 13-8. The No. 7 Mawrtians (8-2-1) scored on nine straight shots to run their lead as high as 13-5 midway through the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference non-league game at Bryn Mawr. "We're starting to really get to know each other and we're finding each other in the 8-meter [arc]," said senior Megan Burker, who led the Mawrtians with five goals.

PHILADELPHIA -- These are the ones that drive Wes Unseld crazy.It's one thing to put an inferior team on the court and get blown away by a championship caliber team. It's completely another to go into an opponent's building and play solid basketball for 42 minutes only to give the game away in the final six with sloppy play and poor decisions.Last night at the Spectrum, the Washington Bullets let one slip out of their hands in a 108-100 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers."They outworked us down the stretch," said Unseld, after his team squandered leads of nine and 13 after the third quarter.

If the Florida A&M basketball team is on the verge of life support, where does Morgan State stand after coming unglued in the final minutes yesterday and losing a 66-63 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference decision at Hill Field House? Morgan coach Chris Fuller didn't hang around to answer that question. But he could have pulled out a tape-recording of his post-game interview two weeks ago after a 68-65 setback to North Carolina A&T and it would have told the story. Morgan did little right in the final 8: 12 after senior guard Jimmy Fields gave his teammates hope for a second straight victory with a three-point jumper on a fast break, pushing the Bears (4-8, 4-18)

Zachery Peacock made the go-ahead shot with 25.7 seconds left to rescue No. 20 Georgia Tech, which blew a 20-point first-half lead before holding on to beat No. 12 North Carolina, 73-71, on Saturday. Iman Shumpert finished with a career-high 30 points to lead the Yellow Jackets (13-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who figured out a way to pull out a win after falling behind in the wild final minutes. Peacock managed just six points, but his shot in the lane that rolled around the rim before dropping through ended up being the biggest play of Georgia Tech's first win in Chapel Hill since 1996.

Navy faced a rival Army squad with the same record and no conference losses Saturday. The host Mids won, 75-64. Kelsey Minato posted a game-high 25points for the Black Knights (11-4, 3-1 Patriot League), and Jade Geif scored a team-high 24 points for Navy (12-3, 4-0). During halftime, former Navy player Becky Dowling Calders (1994-1998) had her jersey, No. 32, retired. She is the first female Mid to be so honored.

Bobby Kough can still remember the moment Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds got away. "Somebody tried to cut [block] me. I was right there to tackle him," Kough, a junior defensive end for Army, said earlier this week. "I didn't have any force or power in my legs, so it was just my upper body. He kind of ran opposite of me, and I slid off of him. He strung it out to the sideline and our guys couldn't get to him. " The next thing Kough (pronounced Co) saw, Reynolds was in the end zone after an 8-yard touchdown run, one that gave the Midshipmen the lead with 4:41 remaining in last year's game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

The stars did their share in Wednesday's boys basketball showdown between No. 1 Mount St. Joseph and No. 3 St. Frances. Mount St. Joseph senior guard Phil Booth helped the visiting Gaels build an 11-point advantage in the third quarter, and St. Frances senior Dwayne Morgan made big shots to get the Panthers back in the game shortly after. In the closing minutes, however, it was St. Frances sophomore guard Daquan Bracey who made the difference. Bracey scored seven of his 17 points in the final two minutes - two free throws, a pivotal three-point play and two more from the foul line - to give the host Panthers a character-building 60-51 win over the Gaels.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Maryland returned to the Barclays Center a year older and maybe a year wiser, but the Terps seemed to follow the same script against No. 18 Connecticut on Friday night that they did in a three-point loss to No. 3 Kentucky in last season's opener. Seemingly as nervous as they were against the Wildcats, the Terps fell behind early and by a lot - 12 at halftime, 17 early in the second half - before staging a furious comeback that, again, fell short. Junior point guard Dez Wells missed two shots in the closing seconds and Maryland lost, 78-77, before a pro-Terps crowd of 12,867.

Even before Saturday night's pivotal Colonial Athletic Association showdown with No. 7 Towson, Delaware appeared to be fighting an uphill battle. Not only were the Tigers playing in the friendly confines of Johnny Unitas Stadium, but the No. 21 Blue Hens would also have to pull off the upset without starting junior quarterback Trent Hurley, who was injured in the team's 35-13 rout of Rhode Island a week ago. But Delaware did the unthinkable, scoring 22 unanswered points in the last 12 minutes of the fourth quarter to stun Towson, 32-31, before an announced 8,741.

Ray Rice had welts on his forehead and upper right arm. He needed to douse his eyes with drops to clear them of dirt and sweat. After more than three hours of playing in stifling heat and humidity, the Ravens diminutive running back looked like a man who needed a shower followed by a long nap. Rice's afternoon mirrored that of the Ravens, who were able to exhale only after Miami Dolphins kicker Caleb Sturgis sent a 57-yard field-goal attempt wide...

After one quarter, at the half, through three periods and well into the fourth quarter of last night's Baltimore Catholic League tournament semifinal at Goucher College, the St. Frances Panthers were firmly believing this would finally be their turn against Archbishop Spalding. Then came a clumsy couple of minutes. Four turnovers and bad aim at the foul line in the final two-plus minutes overshadowed an otherwise strong performance from the No. 4 Panthers, giving Spalding forward Rudy Gay a chance to be the hero.

Purkey wants the Bruins to take chances and keep the pressure on -- she calls it "no-fear hockey."And it seemed to put a scare into Friends.Kara Keith took a perfect lead pass from Kris Heard to score early in the second half, and the defense of No. 14 Park made it stand up for a 1-0 victory over host and No. 13 Friends in an Association of Independent Schools A Division matchup yesterday.Although much of the game was played in the middle of the field -- only five shots were taken overall -- Park (2-0)

UMBC coach Don Zimmerman has been in the game long enough not to get too excited about one victory over another or get frustrated by one loss versus another. But Zimmerman, who recently wrapped up his 27th season as a head coach, conceded that the Retrievers' come-from-behind 15-13 victory over Hartford on May 2 in an America East tournament semifinal at Stony Brook was one that still resonated with him weeks after that outcome. “I wish I could bottle that last six minutes as far as what we did on the field and what we did on the sideline and as far as that team being determined to do whatever they could do to help us win that game,” Zimmerman said, referring to the team's 6-0 run in the final 5 minutes, 46 seconds of that contest.

The ends were just as important as the starts for the Stevenson men's lacrosse team in its 13-7 victory over No. 13 Lynchburg in Wednesday night's NCAA tournament quarterfinal at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills. No. 4 Stevenson's fourth appearance in the last five national semifinals was aided by the offense's ability to score goals in the final minutes of the first and second quarters. Sophomore attackman Mark Pannenton converted a bounce pass from junior attackman Chris Dashiell with 1.1 seconds left in the first period and then scored with 38.3 and 19.7 seconds remaining in the second frame.
