Randallstown forward Ravin Chase scored just eight points last night, but the last six gave the No. 6 Rams the biggest win of the senior's career. In the final three minutes of the game, Chase hit two layups and two free throws to lift the Rams to a 48-47 victory over No. 15 and five-time defending Baltimore County champion Milford Mill. The Millers had not lost a game in the county league in five years. Early in a physical county Division I battle, the visiting Rams (8-1, 5-0) managed little with their inside game as Millers Timmena Wilkins, Tamika Rogers and Folake Adeyemo covered 6-foot-1 Chase and 6-3 Teresa Fallin.

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved rules changes in men's lacrosse Wednesday regarding stalling rules and faceoff tactics. Starting in 2015, a visible clock can be used to time the 30-second stalling segment in facilities capable of displaying the clocks. Division I men's lacrosse programs will be required to have the clocks displayed by 2016, and Division II and Division III will be required to have visible clocks by 2017. The panel also supported the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Rules Committee recommendation that two clocks be used, one at each end of the field.

The Maryland football team knew all about Marshall's gaudy statistics - the 43 points and 502.3 yards per-game averages engineered by prolific, elusive quarterback Rakeem Cato and his spread offense. If they were going to win their first bowl game in three years, the Terps understood the risk of getting into a shootout. So Maryland tried to run the ball, control the clock and keep Cato on the sideline throughout the Military Bowl at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. But ultimately, the Terps couldn't stop Cato from hoisting the bowl's Most Valuable Player trophy over his head in the early-evening chill after a 31-20 loss before an announced 30,163 in Annapolis.

The person with the most difficult job in baseball might be Steve Palermo. The former American League umpire recently was appointed to lead a study to crack the mystery of why baseball games are getting longer. Palermo has gathered information for six weeks and expects to present his findings to baseball club owners. He spoke recently with The Sun's Mark Hyman.Q: One of baseball's main selling points has been that there's no game clock. Why the big concern about games that stretch on for three hours or longer?

Goodwin Chen's team clung to a slim four-point lead as the game clock ticked down below 20 seconds. With the poise of a Michael Jordan, he nailed one two-pointer and then another to clinch a 46-38 victory for his team.Basketball? Hardly. It was something much more fulfilling than basketball and more exciting than the annual turkey called the Super Bowl. It was a semi-final game of Baltimore's National Academic League competition. Chen, a 13-year-old 8th eighth-grader and the captain of Roland Park Middle School's team, correctly answered "mammals" when asked what is the only class of animals to have an outer ear. The game clock showed 13 seconds left.

The Washington Bullets, who drew criticism from visiting teams and the NBA for repeated technical glitches at the Baltimore Arena last season, have vowed to rectify the problems when they return to play four games as part of their 1991-92 schedule announced yesterday.The Charlotte Hornets will play at the Arena on Dec. 28, followed by the Philadelphia 76ers on Jan. 18, the Atlanta Hawks on Feb. 17 and the Milwaukee Bucks on March 7."Our main problem last season," said Bullets president Susan O'Malley, "was that we did not treat the homes games in ZTC Baltimore the same as the ones at the Capital Centre.

Lil Shelton, the long-time coach of the No. 2 Severna Park field hockey team, doesn't like being ahead by one goal late in a game. "It makes me nervous," she said. But Monday, with sophomore Liz Matta in goal, she didn't have to worry. Under pressure, Matta, who made 11 saves — at least five of them in the last nine minutes — was exhilarated by the challenge being brought by a determined Garrison Forrest squad, and held on to lead the visiting Falcons to a 2-1 victory. The win improves Severna Park's record to 3-0, while No. 3 Garrison Forest drops to 2-1. Adding to the excitement was the fact the game matched two long-time successful programs.

Considering what Navy's Keenan Reynolds had done to Hawaii the week before, the South Alabama football team couldn't be blamed for focusing its defensive efforts on the sophomore quarterback Saturday. But the Jaguars forgot to account for Darius Staten. The senior slotback had seven carries for a career-high 127 yards and one touchdown to propel the Midshipmen to a 42-14 rout before an announced 33,086 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Navy scored 32 unanswered points over the final three quarters as a defense missing three starters shut out South Alabama for nearly 40 minutes.

The Morgan State football team found its rhythm on offense in the first and fourth quarters of its Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference opener against Norfolk State. It was the middle stretch that proved to be the Bears' undoing Saturday. The offense had minus-1 yard in the second and third quarters combined, and the Spartans took advantage with 20 unanswered points en route to a 27-21 win before an announced 856 at Hughes Stadium in Baltimore. Morgan State, which has lost its first five games of the season for the first time since 2000, racked up 234 yards and three touchdowns in the opening and final quarters but could not overcome its own crippling play in between.

The Bel Air boys lacrosse team had nearly 20 hours to think about its playoff life and just over seven minutes of game clock to do something about it Tuesday afternoon. Trailing Harford County rival Fallston by two goals when lightning suspended play with 7:11 remaining in Monday's Class 3A-2A North regional semifinal, the No. 15 Bobcats knew they would have to execute precisely when play resumed Tuesday. When Jay Butler took a short pass from Joey Creaghan and bounced home the game-winner with 1:51 to play — the third unanswered goal since play had resumed — the host Bobcats (14-2)

With only two minutes remaining on the game clock, UMBC and New Hampshire were tied at 54. For New Hampshire, it would be a huge upset on the road, a couple of hours in the making. For the Retrievers, with a conference title possibly just two minutes away, we were watching school history, several years in the making. For me, though, tired and dazed, with that eau de locker room smell emanating from my pores, it had been a long day of basketball - eight hours in the making, in fact. The stars had lined up perfectly yesterday, and in Baltimore, we had five area schools hosting games.

HOLLYWOOD -- Friday Night Lights was supposed to be tasting the thrill of victory right now. Industry veterans figured that the acclaimed but little-watched TV drama about a football-obsessed small town in Texas would grab a clutch of major Emmy nominations. And that brilliant showing would in turn abet NBC's efforts to boost the show's audience beyond a small but enthusiastic fan base. Such an outcome might have made for a satisfying dramatic arc. But life ain't a TV show. Friday Night Lights wound up several yards short of a first down, with a complete shutout in the major Emmy categories (although it did get two nods overall)

Todd Heap made a rookie mistake, but he also displayed the talent and potential that led the Ravens to make him their first-round selection in the 2001 draft. The 21-year-old tight end out of Arizona State, who was featured on the HBO series Hard Knocks, had five catches for 57 yards in the Ravens' 17-6 win over the Chicago Bears yesterday. Most of the receptions came when coach Brian Billick made use of a two-tight end formation and lined up Heap opposite his mentor, Shannon Sharpe. "He had a good opening game for us," Billick said of Heap.
