Hammond moved closer to its third straight Howard County dual-meet championship by downing Oakland Mills yesterday, 44-15.The visiting Bears (10-0 overall, 6-0 league) dominated with four pins and two major decisions against the Scorpions (8-2, 5-2), whose only prior loss was to unbeaten River Hill."We needed to overachieve and we underachieved," Oakland Mills coach Brian Chadwick said. "We came out up, but cooled off too fast. They were the better team."The match began on a high note for Hammond with Jason Freiert's upset 103-pound victory over Zach Notes, but hit a low note when 112-pound Paul Nguyen pinned Tim Carter in 1: 52.That was the only time Hammond trailed, however.

The player who dropped a pass made Steve Turnbaugh angry, but the one who missed a block made him furious. "I don't know why we can't run this simple belly play," Turnbaugh told assistants John Walter and Scott Harmon, who flanked the Hereford High football coach as he waved a laminated copy of offensive plays in frustration. "Let's line them up again and just do it again and get it right." "He's just the same old coach - worrying about this, worrying about that," said junior lineman Joe Akers.

A much-hyped McDonogh team, one with only three seniors, was host for yesterday's 27th-annual Ray Oliver wrestling tournament, and the No. 1-ranked Eagles showed they may be even better than advertised. Individual champions Chet Naylor (119), Zak Johns (130), Ricky Tippett (135), Ryan Davis (140) and Geoff Miller (171) paced McDonogh (274 points) to its third straight tournament title over runner-up North Carroll (212). "We want to be No. 1 at the end. It's what drives us, pushes us to be the best," said Johns, a junior who was a runner-up in last winter's National Preps tournament.

Westminster, sparked by four pins and a sparkling overtime victory, ran off 37 straight points and went on to defeat visiting Frederick last night, 43-22.The loss was Frederick's first to a county school in some 10 years of dual-meet competition. But for the unbeaten Owls, it was the seventh dual-meet win in their first action since winning the Damascus tournament 12 days ago.Bobby Biden (119), Kyle Burger (135), Tim Sharkey (140), and Eric Westervelt (189) collected the pins, but it was a 2-1 victory by Dave Spicer over previously unbeaten Kevin Ferraro at 145 fTC pounds that proved to be the match highhlight.

The last time Tyrone Eaton moved up to 160 from his regular 152 pounds, he lost a close decision during Northeast's one-point loss to Meade.But since then, No. 14 Northeast (4-2, 2-1) has won five of its last six matches, including a 39-27 upset of No. 11 South Carroll.A more confident Eaton (9-1, four pins) bumped to 160 in last night's 61-12 Anne Arundel County league victory over North County (1-2, 1-1), this time scoring five takedowns in a 10-4 win over Brian Balonis."Confidence was the big difference.
