WASHINGTON -- Mia Hamm was a good bet to be the story going into yesterday's U.S. Women's Cup championship game at RFK Stadium, and, true to form, she ended it. But there was more.Unlike the Americans' two preceding games in this four-nation, friendly tournament, this was no blowout, although the U.S. team dominated the offensive statistics. Unlike Canada and Australia, which the Americans pummeled with 13 goals, Italy (also 2-0 going for the title) knows defense.So the U.S. women's national team won by 2-0 -- the second goal not going in until the last minute -- to push its unbeaten streak to 30 games before 11,208.

For the second time in less than seven months, the Baltimore Police Department is investigating an alleged sex offense involving a female suspect at a district station house. Police Commissioner Leonard D. Hamm provided sketchy details about the incident last night during a news conference at police headquarters. He said the incident occurred while a 40-year-old detective interviewed a 16-year-old girl at the Southeastern District station house. The girl had an outstanding warrant on a prostitution charge.

Baltimore police Commissioner Leonard D. Hamm yesterday tapped a 25-year veteran to be his top deputy to run the day-to-day operations of the 3,000- member force. Col. Frederick H. Bealefeld III, 44, was named deputy commissioner of operations, replacing Marcus Brown, who is leaving next month to head the Maryland Transportation Authority's police force, the department said. For the past year, Bealefeld has served as chief of the Criminal Investigation Division, overseeing 300 detectives and other staff involved in investigating cases of violence, property crime, sex offenses, missing persons and other crimes.

A former city police major, who is chief of Morgan State University's force, will take over next month as the No. 2 commander of the Baltimore Police Department. Leonard Hamm said he met yesterday with Commissioner Kevin P. Clark and agreed to accept the job of deputy commissioner of operations. The 55-year-old Baltimore native said he hopes to help stop the rumored decline in morale within the department. He said he has seen too many experienced officers depart. "Everybody can't leave," Hamm said.

With the city on pace to reach 300 homicides this year, only one in four residents say Police Commissioner Leonard D. Hamm is an effective leader, according to a new poll conducted for The Sun. Nearly 40 percent say Hamm, who has been on the job for 2 1/2 years, is an ineffective police chief. "How can I describe Hamm? He is untrustworthy," said Jeanette Ishway, a 64-year-old resident of Old Town who was interviewed for the poll. "He and [Mayor] Sheila [Dixon] got their heads together, and the murder rate is rising.

Several City Council members are vowing that acting Police Commissioner Leonard D. Hamm will not slip through the confirmation process as easily as his predecessor did. Though council members say they have enormous respect for Hamm -- a familiar face in city law enforcement -- they fault themselves for not diligently looking into former Commissioner Kevin P. Clark's history before approving his appointment. "We will expect more information from the administration on his background," said Council President Sheila Dixon, who added that she will issue written guidelines about background checks.

PHILADELPHIA - So North Korea is next for the U.S. women's soccer team. But this isn't politics, and the really dangerous confrontation for the Americans may be over now that they've survived last night's Women's World Cup slugfest against rough-and-tumble Nigeria, 5-0. With several of their players wearing earrings and green bows in their hair, the Nigerians looked like The Supremes, but they played like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, mixing a generous amount...

Towson University coach Pat Kennedy promised a smart, disciplined, defensive-minded brand of basketball when he was hired last spring to rebuild the program, and the Tigers delivered it last night in their home opener with a 69-58 victory over Norfolk State before 2,039 at the Towson Center. Four players scored in double figures for Towson (2-1), which combined an effective, matchup zone defense with solid rebounding and the leadership of junior point guard Cantrell Fletcher. Fletcher, the 5-foot-8 transfer from Cecil Community College, exposed the Spartans' defense early with his shooting and passing, and led an offense that protected the ball well enough to hold off tiring Norfolk State (0-1)

Acting Police Commissioner Leonard Hamm's 1997 bankruptcy filing is not "necessarily a disqualifier" for the city's top police job, despite questions about whether Hamm understated his income to escape credit card debt, Mayor Martin O'Malley said yesterday. The mayor also said it was premature to talk about whether he would nominate Hamm for the permanent position, saying the city is reviewing Hamm's background. "This will probably be more in-depth than other background checks have been on police commissioners," O'Malley said.
