UMBC has enjoyed some memorable comebacks wins during Don Zimmerman's tenure. Just a couple that come to mind include a five-goal rally to edge Maryland, 8-7, on March 6, 2012 and a 5-1 fourth quarter to nip Albany, 14-13, in an America East tournament final on May 3, 2008. But the longtime coach said that the Retrievers' six-goal explosion in Thursday's 15-13 decision over Hartford in a conference tournament semifinal at Stony Brook may have been one of best he witnessed. “That was a special comeback, especially against a team like Hartford in a championship setting,” Zimmerman said Friday morning.

After last Saturday's 8-4 victory over No. 13 Johns Hopkins, No. 5 Loyola was thought to be a lock for an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament if the reigning national champion did not repeat as Eastern College Athletic Conference tournament champions this week. Few expected the Greyhounds to fall to No. 8 Ohio State in a conference tournament semifinal, but that is what happened as the Buckeyes pulled off an 18-11 upset at Hobart in Geneva, N.Y., Thursday night. Now Loyola's tournament profile is in question, and it is an unsettling situation for the players and coach Charley Toomey as they await to hear their fate Sunday night when the NCAA selection committee unveils the 16-team field.

Venture capitalists poured $286.3 million into 30 deals in Maryland, Washington and Northern Virginia during the first quarter, compared with $219.7 million invested in 45 deals a year ago, according to the MoneyTree Report by PricewaterhouseCoopers. Much of the quarter's increase, though, was attributed to $110 million in venture funding for Washington-based LivingSocial Inc., a daily deal website. Unlike the country overall, the region that includes Maryland saw an increase in investment dollars from the fourth quarter, said Brad Phillips, director of PricewaterhouseCoopers' emerging company services.

The end of Washington College's drought against Salisbury started to sink in as the Shoremen took a victory lap. Past the grandstand. Past hundreds of students who reveled on a hill overlooking Roy Kirby Jr. Stadium well after the game. Wednesday's 7-6 victory didn't erase a dozen straight losses in the "War on the Shore. " But it was another sign of how far Washington College has come in the past couple of years. "To me, it's a culmination of everything - highs and lows," senior attackman Bennett Cord said.

Midfielder Cameron Flint sprinted 40 yards down the field off a faceoff and scored on a low shot 16 seconds into overtime as No. 1 Denver defeated No. 8 Loyola, 13-12, before an announced 2,478 Saturday at Ridley Field. The goal spoiled a furious comeback by Loyola (9-3, 5-1 ECAC) which trailed 8-3 at the half and had tied the game on a goal from senior midfielder Sean O'Sullivan from 15 yards out with 2:39 left in regulation. After Flint connected in the sudden-death OT, he was swarmed by teammates near the back of the goal as the Pioneers (10-2, 5-0)

The man-up unit put the Stevenson men's lacrosse team up for good. Just 11 seconds after No. 8 Lynchburg was flagged for a slashing penalty, the No. 5 Mustangs took advantage of their extra-man opportunity when junior attackman Chris Dashiell found sophomore midfielder Michael Crowe wide open on the left side of the crease for a 12-11 win in overtime at Mustang Stadium on Saturday night. Crowe's first goal of the game, with 2:43 left in the extra four-minute period, occurred as a result of the Hornets' defensive focus on sophomore attackman Mark Pannenton, who leads Stevenson with six man-up goals.

The Randallstown boys basketball team had the ultimate fourth-quarter test of character. The Rams saw their 15-point lead dwindle to nothing with five minutes to play in Tuesday's Class 2A North region semifinal. The opponent was No. 13 Lake Clifton, defending state champions and the same Lakers who rallied past them earlier in the season. Instead of folding, Randallstown stayed poised. The Rams executed on offense and clamped down on defense, scoring the next eight points to restore order and claim a hard-fought 59-55 win on their home court.

Central Maryland's rate of homeownership, the proportion of households that are owner-occupied, was slightly lower in the fourth quarter of 2012 than during the same time a year earlier, according to data recently released by the U.S. Census Bureau. Just over 65 percent of occupied homes in Baltimore and six surrounding counties - Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, Howard and Queen Anne's - were owned by someone who lived there, the Census Bureau reported. In the fourth quarter of 2011, the homeownership rate in the region was 67.5 percent.
