With a nine-point lead with seven minutes remaining in the 2A South Region title game last night, host Mount Hebron had Fairmont Heights reeling. But when the net-cutting began, it was the No. 4-ranked Vikings girls basketball team that finally hit the ground hard. Its hopes of a trip to UMBC for the state semifinal was shockingly halted by the Prince George's County school that stormed back for a 58-49 victory. Martina Wheeler led Fairmont Heights (16-8) with 18 points while sophomore point guard Mia Glover scored 11 of her 17 points in the final period.

In opening the season with nine consecutive victories, No. 8 Loyola had accomplished many things, but had avoided trailing in the fourth quarter. That changed Saturday when No. 19 Fairfield embarked on a five-goal spurt to assume a 6-4 advantage 3:01 into the final period. But the Greyhounds answered eight seconds later with a Davis Butts-to-J.P. Dalton goal off the faceoff, and that kick-started a four-goal run to propel them to their first 10-0 season since 1999. While preferring to avoid falling behind in the final 15 minutes of regulation, coach Charley Toomey appreciated the determination that the players showed against the Stags.

MILWAUKEE - If early indications mean anything, then this rematch is shaping up as a mismatch. In the opener of the Major Indoor Soccer League Finals, the second-seeded Blast moved one step closer to repeating as champion with a convincing, 12-3 win over the top-seeded Milwaukee Wave at U.S. Cellular Arena last night. The loss was the worst in postseason play in Milwaukee franchise history. The win was the Blast's third straight over the Wave, which is making its sixth appearance in the championship round in seven years.

Junior attackman Chase Cullison supplied the needed fourth-quarter offense and No. 11 Winters Mill's defense more than held its own at the other end to defeat host Westminster, 9-6, in Carroll County play Thursday. With the game tied at 6 going into the fourth quarter, Cullison scored the go-ahead goal and an insurance tally. Fellow junior attackman Ryan Ackerman scored four goals, and senior midfielder Jason Kreimer added two as the Falcons improved to 3-0 on the season. Westminster, which got two goals and two assists from junior attackman Ryan Drenner, fell to 2-1. Winters Mill coach Sal Picataggi didn't hesitate when asked what the difference was in the game.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- When the Baltimore Thunder players look back on the 1994 Major Indoor Lacrosse League season, it won't be difficult to figure out why the team finished in last place.The Thunder played very little defense all season and it showed in last night's season finale against the New York Saints at the Nassau Coliseum. The Thunder lost, 15-11, before 7,529 fans."We had a difficult time clearing the ball and our defense had no cohesion," said Thunder coach Skip Lichtfuss. "Hey, the Saints deserve some credit.

Mount Hebron's sixth-ranked girls basketball team allowed an opponent to score more than nine first-half points for the first time this season when 18th-ranked Centennial put up 17 in last night's league game at Mount Hebron. The second half, however, was a different story as the Vikings limited the Eagles to nine points - three in the final period - en route to a 49-26 victory. "We really stepped it up defensively in the second half," said Mount Hebron coach Scott Robinson. "We played a lot smarter."

Simply put, No. 19 Atholton was nearly perfect in the fourth quarter of last night's game with visiting Long Reach. Atholton made all 14 of its free throws, went 5-for-6 from the field and took control in the final period to hold off a Long Reach rally and pull out a 65-59 victory in a Howard County game. The Raiders had little trouble early, making seven of their first 14 shots and jumping to a 17-6 first-quarter lead. But Atholton (7-3, 7-1) went cold for most of the second and third quarters while Long Reach (7-3, 6-2)

LARGO - So close. "It was there," said River Hill girls basketball coach Teresa Waters. "But it slipped away." The Hawks, the Baltimore area's top-ranked girls basketball team, gave everything they had last night against Riverdale Baptist, the Washington area's No. 1 team, before losing, 50-48, in a semifinal game of the IAABO Invitational Christmas Tournament at Prince George's Community College. River Hill (5-1) took a 16-15 lead with six minutes left in the second quarter and held it until Riverdale Baptist's Ashley Whisonant made a driving layup to give the Crusaders a 47-46 lead with 1:34 left in the game.

McDonogh coach Matt MacMullan had a tough time dealing with his host and No. 8 Eagles' 53-44 loss to No. 6 Archbishop Spalding yesterday in a key Baltimore Catholic League/Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game. "I was frustrated with the way we lost, because I felt we had some shots we should make and didn't make," said MacMullan, whose Eagles shot just 2-for-16 (12.5 percent) from the field in the third period, 6-for-27 (22 percent) in the second half and 16-for-55 (29 percent)

For all of his documented troubles regarding field-goal attempts of 50 yards or more, Billy Cundiff can take solace in the knowledge that he has been quite productive in the fourth quarter. Since 2010, the Ravens kicker has connected on all 14 field goals he has made in the final period. He added to that streak with a 39-yarder with 3:10 left in an eventual 16-6 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving night. Cundiff, who made all three field goals that he attempted Thursday night, said he understands that the onus is on him to convert field goals, especially in fourth quarters.

Joppatowne stayed close throughout most of last night's game at North Harford. But when the Mariners began making mistakes, North Harford converted those miscues into points that turned a nail-biter into a rout. Quarterback Dan Griffin and running back Bryan Woolson sparked a 23-point fourth quarter that helped No. 12 North Harford pull away for a 37-12 victory over Joppatowne in an Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference game. Griffin completed seven of 10 passes for 141 yards and three touchdowns.

As the top-ranked Mount St. Joseph Gaels go about their business on the basketball court, they always look the same, emotionally and physically. Their emotional mannerisms and their facial expressions do not reveal whether they are up or down in a given game. Physically, they are also constant - they make all the plays, especially at nitty-gritty time. Last night in their latest of 32 consecutive wins, the Gaels' poise and talent overcame an inspired DaJuan Summers-led effort to outlast McDonogh, 53-49, in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference semifinals played at St. Paul's.

WASHINGTON - In recent years, staying close to the reigning world champions deep into the fourth quarter might have been considered a step in the right direction for the Washington Wizards. Since the Wizards have been one of the biggest surprises in the NBA and one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference this season, last night's 105-96 defeat to the Detroit Pistons at MCI Center would not qualify as anything but a disappointment. After turning a five-point halftime deficit into a five-point lead going into the fourth quarter, the Wizards reverted to their role as wanna-bes and the Pistons played with the confidence that came from taking home the trophy last season.

Long Reach's Eugene Lightfoot was hungry for playing time. Starved. So when he finally got his chance last night in the Class 3A East region quarterfinals against Douglass of Prince George's County, he was determined to stay on the court as long as he could. It turned out to be almost three quarters. His presence paid off with a 73-65 victory for the host Lightning, which had lost to Douglass in the playoffs four years ago and had never beaten a Prince George's team in the playoffs. "My mind was racing, saying: I have to rebound; I have to box out; I have to play defense; and I can't mess up or I'll be back on the bench.

Calvin Dotson, among three seniors on the Dunbar Poets, said he's been "hearing it all year that we can't get it done." "People have questioned everything about us, from we don't have any heart to we're too young," Dotson said. "We've heard we're the eighth-best team in the city. We've been the talk of the town that way." But with a come-from-behind, non-divisional, 70-64 upset victory over fourth-ranked Southern (9-4) in a Baltimore City League game yesterday, the seventh-ranked Poets (8-4)
