As they quietly filed out of the Harford Tech gymnasium, many Eastern Tech fans shook their heads in disbelief. For their Mavericks, the loss nearly defied description. But the scoreboard told the story: No. 4 Harford Tech 54, No. 10 Eastern Tech 9. "It was a really bad night," said a nearly speechless Chris Clark, a former state runner-up who was taken down with 26 seconds left in his 5-3 loss to unbeaten Josh Taylor. "They came with a lot of intensity," said Clark, ranked sixth at 152 pounds.

Loyola controlled the early part of last night's NCAA second-round game against visiting North Carolina Greensboro, and a first-half goal by Phil Bannister appeared to be the start of another dominant performance by the Greyhounds. After getting the lead, however, Loyola appeared to become conservative and the Spartans took control, scoring the tying the goal in the 73rd minute. Corey Maret, a second-half substitute, then got the game-winner 2:11 into overtime to give UNC Greensboro a 2-1 victory and a date with the winner of the Harvard-South Florida game in the round of 16. "They've won so many one-goal games, I think they contributed a bit to their downfall by sitting back," UNC Greensboro coach Michael Parker said.

Jeff Gardner had waited a year to avenge his two losses to Chesapeake's Jake Couch. Last night, the Harford Tech junior's patience paid off. Down by three points early in the first period, Gardner rallied to win seven of the next eight in an 8-5 decision over the two-time Anne Arundel County champion in a 171-pound match. Gardner's victory came during a six-bout sweep in a 55-24, season-opening rout of the 10th-ranked Cougars. State runner-up Josh Taylor (160 pounds), Perry Hall transfer Matt Kahl (152)

When Loyola teammates Tennant McVea and Jamie Darvill first met in early 2006, they were sitting in a London airport waiting for their flight to the United States. McVea, from Northern Ireland, and Darvill, from England, had each agreed to play for the Greyhounds, part of an incoming freshman class coach Mark Mettrick hoped would propel the team to new heights. Nearly three years later, the duo, roommates who are friends off the field, has Loyola poised to make a run in the NCAA College Cup. The action continues today when the ninth-seeded Greyhounds (18-1-1)

Harford Tech wrestler Mike Long is nicknamed Harry Potter for his likeness to the popular child wizard of book and movie fame. "It doesn't bother me," said Long, who was born in Hollywood, has a toothy smile and a crescent-shaped scar on his forehead in an area similar to Potter's. "It's a compliment. Hey, at times in matches, I wish I had a magic wand." The freshman's efforts in yesterday's bout had more to do with skill than magic as he won a possible preview of the 103-pound Harford County title matchup, 5-3, on an overtime takedown against last year's runner-up Eric Brown (4-2)

COLLEGE PARK - Hammond coach Pedro Barbosa stood in the center of his wrestlers on Thursday and asked them for one more weekend of excellence. The Golden Bears (26-0) had already won county, region and state duals titles, along with county and region tournament titles. But they carried with them injuries and illness. "Gentlemen, we have faced adversity before and we have overcome it," Barbosa said at the end of a hard practice. "Just give me one more great performance this weekend, one more time."

Paced by consecutive pins by A.J. Smith and Adam Blake at 152 and 160 pounds, No. 2 Hammond won a battle of Class 2A-1A state title contenders last night in a tri-meet at Harford Tech. The pins by Smith, Blake and sophomore Ryan McKevitt (140) came in a 38-31 win over injury-ravaged and No. 10 Harford Tech. Smith later keyed a 33-31 victory over Calvert Hall, pinning Matt Cunningham, to turn a three-point deficit into a three-point lead with three bouts left. Hammond is now 20-0; Calvert Hall is 13-4; and Harford Tech, a 36-34 loser to Calvert Hall, is 7-3. "Harford Tech wasn't at full strength, but the middle of our lineup always steps up the most, as it did tonight," said Smith, who flattened the Cobras' Jonathan Woods for an insurmountable 32-19 lead.

The 2A-1A North regional duals wrestling title - between Maryland's two top-ranked public school teams - went down to one bout last night. Harford Tech's state finalist Mike Taylor needed to pin Owings Mills' Ryan Nash at 130 pounds. If he did, the Cobras would claim their first regional duals title. If he didn't, it would be just another year of host Owings Mills' dominance. Taylor won, 3-2, but by avoiding the pin in a scrappy bout, Nash preserved a 29-27 victory for Owings Mills and the school's ninth regional title.

COLLEGE PARK - Rob Cooper repeated his winning ways in the 119-pound weight class, and teammate Sasha Binder's title at 140 made up for lost time as the seniors led Owings Mills to its second straight Class 2A-1A state tournament championship, and its sixth overall, last night at Cole Field House. Cooper (38-2) scored eight takedowns in a showdown of state champions with D.J. Scarponi (34-7), and his 18-6 victory was his fourth over the Hereford wrestler. Binder (37-0) earned his third win of the season over Harford Tech's Brad Dreyer (32-4)

LA PLATA - Hammond junior Adam Blake was in danger of being pinned by South Carroll's Anthony Winfield when Mary Blake passed out in the stands from excitement. When Adam's mother was revived with an oxygen mask by paramedics 10 minutes later, she awoke to a celebration. Blake's 171-pound decision led a 35-27 Class 2A-1A state duals victory at La Plata High by the No. 2 Bears (26-0), whose third crown tied a state record by Owings Mills, and whose single-season win total is a school record.

What was supposed to be a matchup of Harford County's premier wrestling teams quickly turned into a blowout for host Harford Tech yesterday. Harford Tech's first wrestler got pinned, but the Cobras won nine of the next 10 bouts, six by pins, and finished with a 49-19 rout of visiting Fallston. It was the fourth straight dual-meet win for Harford Tech over the Cougars (2-1 county and overall) - and by far the most dominant of the series. The Cobras' ambitious schedule includes eight teams that have been ranked by The Sun at some point already this season.

With two games left, Francis Scott Key appears to be not only closing in on the postseason berth that has eluded it since 2000, but also on titles in both the Carroll County League and in the Piedmont Division of the Monocacy Valley Athletic League, said third-year coach John Baugher. Last weekend's 32-28 win over Tuscarora of Frederick County moved the Eagles to 5-0 in the Piedmont, and 7-1 overall. A win over county rival Winters Mill in the season finale would clinch an unbeaten Piedmont record, along with a 6-1 county mark that would clinch that title as well.

COLLEGE PARK - Owings Mills moved a school-record seven wrestlers into today's semifinals of the Class 2A-1A tournament at the University of Maryland and seems well on its way to winning its sixth state championship. By moving Rob Cooper (119), Eric Vinores (125), Ryan Nash (130), Jon Demchick (135), Sasha Binder (140), Mike Kessler (145) and Eric Fishel (171) forward, the Eagles lead second place South Carroll, 67.5-44.5. Cooper is seeking his second straight state title. "We had one goal all year, and that's to win a team state championship and a bunch of individual ones," said Fishel, a third-place finisher last year.
