The North and South squads entered Saturday afternoon's Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Classic tied at 4 wins all-time. Maybe it was only fitting, then, that the ninth edition went to overtime. The South, which trailed by as many as seven goals at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium, didn't lead for a single second of regulation Saturday, but it got a goal from Sykesville's Mikey Wynne just 49 seconds into the extra frame to seal the 17-16 comeback win.

While it's likely that the title game July 19 will be another U.S.-Canada matchup -- the teams have played in every gold-medal contest since 1998 -- a couple of squads could challenge them.  First and foremost are the Iroquois, who are led by five members of the Thompson family.

For proof of the expanding reach of lacrosse around the globe, look no further than the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships, which begin Thursday night in the Denver suburbs.

Under Armour All-Americans Taylor Hensh and Tianna Wallpher have never played lacrosse together, but that doesn't mean they're not familiar with each other's games.

The two battled for Howard County titles and regional championships throughout their careers. Hensh's Mustangs won four of the seven meetings and won three state championships, although Mount Hebron knocked them out in the 2012 regional playoffs.
