The return of a first midfield that combined for 70 goals and 19 assists in 2013 was expected to be the foundation for a St. Mary's team that graduated All-Everything attackman Patrick Mull, and the unit has not disappointed. Junior Matt Tarrant (eight goals and one assist in 2014), junior Will Lerch (6, 2) and senior Gordy Long (6, 1) rank 1-2-3 in points, and have helped the No. 14 Seahawks improve to 2-1, which includes a season-opening 12-8 win against then-No. 8 Roanoke. “They're a handful, and it's great because they're all very different styles,” coach Chris Hasbrouck said Monday morning of the starting midfield.

Even very little children, who might appreciate the novelty of a "talking pig," will be bored to distraction with Mark Lewis' "Gordy," an exercise in sentimentalized junk and reckless incoherence.Handily the most irritating family-type movie since Dallas filmmaker Gordon McLendon befouled the screen with "My Dog Buddy" 35 years ago, "Gordy" starts promisingly enough with a barnyard ruckus: A family of porkers is loaded up for shipment to market, but one piglet escapes; this must be Gordy, who now undertakes a road trip to learn what has become of his folks.

A day after escaping the death penalty for the fatal stabbing of Kimberly Spicer, Joseph "Tiny" Metheny was sentenced yesterday to spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole.Metheny, 43, a confessed serial killer who claims he has killed as many as 10 people, sat stone-faced as Baltimore Circuit Judge Clifton J. Gordy pronounced the sentence. He told Metheny the sentence will be consecutive to a 50-year term he is serving for kidnapping and sexually abusing another woman.

It might not have been law school, but city prosecutors got a refresher course in basic courtroom etiquette yesterday -- on topics ranging from how to properly address judges and conduct themselves in front of jurors to making sure their shoes are polished. Circuit Court Judge Clifton J. Gordy led the 90-minute session, and while there were lighter moments, the gist of his comments was serious. Attendance for prosecutors was mandatory, and a sign-up sheet was circulated throughout Gordy's chambers on the fifth floor of Courthouse East.

Maybe you'd like to come down the hallway of the junior high school I attended - we called it the Intermediate School - to meet Mr. Gordon T. "Gordie" Ross, a barrel-chested man stuffed into a plaid sport coat, his thick neck trapped by the tab collar of a white shirt and striped tie. He's moon-jawed and pie-faced, with thick brown hair, and as serious as granite block about teaching biology to 7th graders, tolerating no foolishness from the wise...

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- Towson pressured one of the top quarterbacks in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision into his worst game of the season, nearly quadrupled its rushing average despite not having its starting tailback and was within one pass of pulling out a win in the closing seconds. But when Tigers receiver Demetrius Harrison slipped on his route and couldn't connect with Sean Schaefer on a fourth-down pass into the end zone, it meant the Tigers had lost again to William and Mary.

By the time Judge Joseph P. McCurdy stepped off the bench and packed up his robe Thursday, the Baltimore Circuit Court had shed 64 years of experience in less than two months. McCurdy, a judge for 15 years, was the third of three prominent senior city judges to retire this fall. Chief Judge Joseph H.H. Kaplan left Oct. 1, taking with him nearly 29 years, and Chief Judge Clifton T. Gordy left Nov. 7 with 21 years. By state law, judges must retire at age 70. These three retired earlier.

Defense lawyers for Joseph "Tiny" Metheny called a surprise witness yesterday in an effort to help their client avoid a possible death sentence -- the lead homicide detective who investigated the gruesome killing.The lawyers are trying to show that the former Baltimore forklift operator does not deserve the death penalty because he did not commit an aggravating crime, such as sexual assault, when he allegedly killed Kimberly Spicer in 1996 when she was 23.The defense called the detective to try to make a bizarre but important point: that Metheny, 43, preferred to have sex with dead women and necrophilia is not considered a crime in Maryland.

Judge Joseph H.H. Kaplan has been on the city Circuit Court bench since 1977; Judge Clifton J. Gordy since 1985. Both planned to retire within a year. But Kaplan, Baltimore's longest-serving and perhaps most prolific judge, disclosed yesterday that he will step down from the bench a few months early so that Gordy, his friend and colleague, can briefly serve as chief judge -- a ceremonial title given to the judge with the most seniority. "This is one of the most gracious things I've ever seen or heard of one colleague doing for another," Gordy said.
