In college lacrosse, there is no substitute for offense. Salisbury learned that lesson Sunday as Tufts scored 11 goals throughout the second and third quarters to emerge with a 12-9 victory in the NCAA Division III men's lacrosse championship before an announced 22,219 at M&T Bank Stadium. The Jumbos (21-2) ended their season with a 14-game winning streak and are now 2-1 in title games, with all three matchups against the Sea Gulls. Tufts defeated Salisbury, 9-6, for the 2010 championship, but the Sea Gulls returned the favor in 2011 with a 19-7 rout.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - More than 1,500 jumbo squid - common to South America - have washed onto Orange County beaches over the past few days, leaving marine experts perplexed as to why so many of these torpedo-shaped mollusks have traveled so far north. "We've known that there's something peculiar going on with those species," said John McGowan, professor emeritus at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego. Dotting Crystal Cove State Park beach up to Newport Beach, the creatures with their elongated, gooey-looking tentacles and oversized heads have caught beachgoers off-guard, said Eric Bauer, Newport Beach lifeguard captain.

The two sides have met just twice, with Tufts capturing the 2010 national championship with a 9-6 win and Salisbury returning the favor the following year in a 19-7 rout. This is the Jumbos' third appearance in the NCAA tournament final, while the Sea Gulls have advanced to their 14th title game. Tufts (20-2) is riding a 13-game winning streak since losing, 15-8, to Williams on April 1. The team has matched the program's previous season high in wins, set by the 2010 squad that went 20-1.

Is a smaller egg commercially available? It seems chicken eggs have gone from large to super jumbo over the years. I'm not asking for quail eggs, just a smaller alternative. Eggs are classed in sizes based on weight by the dozen: peewee, small, medium, large, extra-large and jumbo. Peewee, small and jumbo rarely show up in supermarkets, but medium, large and extra-large are usually available. Medium might be what you need. The size of a chicken's egg is affected by its age, the breed and environmental factors, such as heat and stress.

Two weeks ago, its creditors approved a plan that will allow Pro Set to emerge from Chapter 11.That clears the way for Pro Set to be sold to Power Entertainment, a new company formed by Chadwick, Chambers & Associates of Houston, later this month."The challenge is to re-establish credibility with collectors," said Pro Set's vice president of sales Ken Parlini, who was in Baltimore last weekend for Diamond Comic Distributors' annual retail seminar.

Through the first six games, No. 5 Stevenson had won five games but had yet to demonstrate the killer instinct that Paul Cantabene was looking for. On Tuesday night, the coach finally saw what he had been waiting for in the reigning national champion Mustangs' 15-9 upset of No. 3 Tufts at Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills. Stevenson (6-1) never trailed against the Jumbos (4-1) as the offense scored the contest's first three goals. On two occasions - once in the first quarter and once in the second - Tufts narrowed the gap to one goal, but the Mustangs regained sizable cushions.

If the Stevenson men's lacrosse team was looking for a signature win of the 2014 season, it got one Tuesday night. In a matchup of programs that have captured NCAA championships, the No. 5 Mustangs never trailed in a 15-9 win against No. 3 Tufts before an announced 351 at Mustang Stadium. Stevenson (6-1), the reigning Division III national champion, had lost to then-No. 2 Rochester Institute of Technology in a rematch of last year's NCAA title game and beaten then-No. 11 Western New England, but Tuesday night's victory was the kind of result that can alter the course of a season.

Stevenson's home contest against No. 8 Lynchburg will be the No. 5 Mustangs' first against a ranked opponent since a 7-6 loss to No. 6 Tufts on March 19. Since that setback, Stevenson walloped Hood and Lebanon Valley by respective scores of 22-3 and 19-4, but coach Paul Cantabene is eager to see how the team will respond to the challenge that the Hornets pose. “It'll be nice to see,” he said Thursday. “I think they did a good job of playing much better and more consistent in games.

The university's decision to suspend 27 Tufts players for using sexist and racist comments during a women's volleyball game may have cost the Jumbos a pair of losses to New England Small College Athletic Conference opponents. But coach Mike Daly said he stood behind the penalty. “No regrets whatsoever,” he said Monday morning prior to Tufts practicing at Stevenson's Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills in preparation for Tuesday night's game against the No. 2 Mustangs. “We've got great kids, we've got a great university, and we've got a great lacrosse program.

Baltimore Comptroller Joan M. Pratt brought a jumbo check to the city's Board of Estimates meeting Wednesday to represent the $400,000 she says the city is wasting per month on its outdated, expensive phone system. "We are losing $400,000 a month until this is implemented, fully," Pratt said of the conversion to a more-modern phone system. "We need to move beyond this. I am asking, 'Madam Mayor, let's not continue to be stuck in the mud.'" Pratt said her comments were a response to claims made by Chris Tonjes, the mayor's new IT director.

Marylanders looking to pile their picnic tables with crabs for one last send-off to summer this Labor Day will likely have to do so with a less-than-jumbo variety of the state's favorite crustacean, thanks to Hurricane Isaac. The storm that tore through Louisiana last week did significant damage to Gulf Coast docks and roads, disrupting a regular supply to Maryland — and elsewhere — of the jumbo and large crabs that, for a variety of reasons, aren't being harvested locally this season.

Regarding your article on New York City's ban on jumbo sugary drinks, it's good that the government is pushing for healthier choices, but will this really be in consumers' best interest? ("Md. leaders watching New York's soda ban," June 1). In this economy, we must ask whether people can afford a tax hike on the sugary beverages that serve as a cheap alternative to low-income families. We will have to wait and see how the tax in NYC goes before we make a decision here. It's understandable why Gov.Martin O'Malleywants to push for healthier diets, but it's not clear that this is the right choice for Maryland.
