For most of the game, the Liberty girls basketball team refused to let Gwynn Park pull away. In the end, however, the Lions gave it away. The Lions weren't used to dealing with the smothering defensive pressure applied by the Yellow Jackets, and they committed 31 turnovers en route to a 64-51 loss in a Class 2A state semifinal Friday at UMBC's RAC Arena. Liberty (21-6), making its first state semifinal appearance since 1983, stayed close until the final five minutes, when the Prince George's County team forced eight turnovers.

It was no mistake when the public address announcer at Comcast Center introduced defending state champion City College as starting two centers in Saturday's Class 2A state final. On a night when the Knights played far from their best basketball, they used their imposing height in the paint, led by 6-foot-8 Jordan Latham and 6-foot-7 Aron Nwankwo, to frustrate opposing Gwynn Park all night, holding the Prince George's team to 29 percent shooting in a 56-45 win. "I wanted to put our size out there," said City coach Mike Daniel, who has started dual centers for the past handful of games.

Do you remember Gwynn Oak Junction? Then you may have gone to the movies at what was the Ambassador Theatre, bought your groceries at Schreiber's, purchased your very first Halloween costume at Read's, spent your allowance at Ben Franklin, and gotten your hair styled at Dorothy's Beauty Parlor. You surely then will remember Gwynn Oak Park, just short hop down Gwynn Oak Avenue, to the corner of Gwyndale, through which ran the Gwynn Falls Creek. Once you got past ticket booth with the nasty smiling-clown's face on it , you knew you were in for an afternoon of great fun - and perhaps a little adventure.

The opening minutes of Friday's Class 2A state semifinal gave the North Carroll boys basketball team an early indication of what it was up against in dealing with talented Gwynn Park. The Yellow Jackets from Prince George's County showed quickness with an immediate steal, strength and athleticism underneath the basket and good aim from the perimeter. For the Panthers, who played hard and never backed down, it was simply too much. Mike Hemsley scored 16 points and Brandon Ford added 15 as the Yellow Jackets rolled to Saturday's title game with a 69-36 win over the Panthers.

Down in the southernmost part of Prince George's County, maybe 20 miles below Washington, the confrontation is known as "The Battle of [Route] 301," Gwynn Park and Douglass high schools getting together each autumn to play a football game the likes of which Jock Sutherland, Amos Alonzo Stagg and Walter Camp might have stuck around to see."Truck-stop football," is the way one spectator at Saturday's game described it, which was most appropriate. Imagine a bunch of truckers, on layover, going out for a no-holds-barred exercise.

Glenelg earned its first playoff football victory since 2003, defeating visiting Gwynn Park, 17-14, Friday night. Gwynn Park (8-3) scored first, on a 4-yard touchdown pass from Jay Adams to Brandon Banks with 26 seconds left in the first half. But Glenelg (9-2) answered on the ensuing kickoff when Ryan Perry fielded the ball inside Glenelg's 20 and handed off to sophomore David Brookhart, who ran up the home sideline for a go-ahead touchdown after Alex Paul's extra point.

BRANDYWINE - Dunbar's players and coaches knew their long winning streak would end at some point. They just didn't expect it to end like this. The top-ranked Poets turned in a mistake-riddled performance in yesterday's season opener against Gwynn Park. Dunbar committed 15 penalties, blew a 10-point halftime lead and gave up 27 second-half points as Gwynn Park rallied for a 33-32 victory. That win ended Dunbar's two-year, 25-game winning streak. The Poets last lost in the 2006 season against Edmondson and have won two state titles along the way. Coach Lawrence Smith gave his team a clear message afterward: The streak is over, and it's time to move on. "There was a lot of pressure on them, [but]
