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.

ATLANTA - -The Washington Capitals won their sixth game in a row and earned two points on the road against a Southeast Division opponent Thursday night. But you wouldn't have known it after seeing the scowl on coach Bruce Boudreau's face as he emerged from the visitors' dressing room, his hands stuffed in his pockets. Boudreau had just watched his team build a three-goal lead against the Atlanta Thrashers, let up late in the second period, then hang on for a frantic 4-3 victory that got much too close for comfort.

Mobley's Eagles put it all together for a big season on various levels. Aberdeen won both the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference Susquehanna Division title and the conference championship. After that, the Eagles won the Class 3A North region title before finishing third in the state meet. The team broke five school records and stepped up in the bigger meets in the second half of the season. Mobley said he was very proud of what his girls showed this season. "This group of young ladies was the most talented team I've coached since being at Aberdeen," Mobley said.

THE RAVENS DON'T deserve to go to the playoffs because they don't have that killer instinct yet. In the NFL, when it's playoff time, good teams make big plays in the final two minutes of a game. Yesterday, the Ravens' final two minutes were a disaster, and it wasn't the young players who cost the team in a 14-13 loss to the Cleveland Browns. It was veterans like running back Jamal Lewis, selfish cornerback Chris McAlister and defensive end Adalius Thomas. And the coaches need to take some blame, too. They stayed in a zone defense too long in the closing minutes, and need to learn better clock management offensively late in games.

LOS ANGELES -- It is clear that, with five wins in their past six games, the Washington Bullets are becoming a good team. But Harvey Grant, who has played with some very good teams in Portland, believes there's still a step the Bullets must take."

After John Carroll's girls lacrosse team rallied from a three-goal halftime deficit to win its season opener Tuesday, the No. 6 Patriots weren't about to let No. 7 Roland Park do the same to them. The Patriots dominated possession and jumped out to seven-goal lead, but they had to hold off the Reds' second-half surge to take a 12-9 victory in an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference game yesterday.

The Ravens reached the midway point of the 2006 season with a 6-2 record and a two-game lead in the AFC North. The next step is to develop a killer instinct, because right now it's definitely lacking. They've dominated opponents early the past two weeks, but yesterday the Ravens almost blew a 17-point first-half lead before holding on for a 26-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals certainly have a high-octane offense, but the game shouldn't have been that close. A good team playing at home with that big of a lead shouldn't be sweating it out until the last play of the game.

After all of the previous postseason disappointments, this spring was supposed to be the one that ended differently for the Washington Capitals. Wednesday night, though, there would be no furious comeback, no heroics from the star-studded lineup to match the Tampa Bay Lightning's killer instinct. There would be no win in the second round, either. The Lightning captured a 5-3 win in Game 4 at the St.Pete Times Forum to complete a tidy four-game sweep of the Capitals in the Eastern Conference semifinals that took all of six days.

In 1924, two brilliant teen-agers, Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, planned and committed a murder as an intellectual game. Their case popularized the use of the phrase "thrill killers" and inspired several movies, most famously Compulsion (1959), starring Bradford Dillman, Dean Stockwell and Diane Varsi as a sympathetic girl. With Ryan Gosling, Michael Pitt and Agnes Bruckner in parallel roles, Murder By Numbers is a new-millennial California update. The killers here are high-school students, not college grads, but like Leopold and Loeb they want to pull a perfect crime to prove they're superior to society.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The enigma that is Maryland forward Terence Morris was on full display last week. The Terps began their NCAA tournament drive in Boise, Idaho, by nearly losing to heavy underdog George Mason, on a day when Morris barely posted. The 6-foot-9 senior did not even take a shot in the first half, rode the bench for a nine-minute stretch in the second half, then finished by tying his season low in scoring with four points. Two days later against Georgia State, Morris played with anger and passion.
