With first place in the Carroll County on the line at home against North Carroll, the Liberty football program was more than up for the challenge. Thanks to an offensive attack that did what it had to, as well as shutdown defense in the second half, the Lions ended the Panthers' undefeated start Thursday night, 22-13. "I'm feeling pretty pumped right now," said Liberty quarterback Austin Bode, who threw for two touchdowns in the win. "I thought this was a great battle throughout the entire game.

Before Tuesday's showdown at Carroll County rival Liberty, Century girls soccer coach Sara Figuly rattled off a number of things her No. 5 Knights would have to do to come away with a win. Of utmost importance: playing hard and together for 80 minutes. Century, the two-time defending county champions and last year's Class 2A state winner, had to do just that to fend off a difficult challenge from the Lions. After Liberty tied the game with 16 minutes left in regulation, the Knights stayed poised and persistent - answering with two goals to come away with a 4-2 win that typifies their recent success.

After a game like Sunday's, all you can do is keep it in perspective. Baltimore fans should not book any travel to Miami or make any hotel reservations. No one should think about hiring a baby sitter for the first week of February yet because there is still so much football left. Take a few deep breaths and repeat: It was only the Lions. It was only the Lions. It was only the Lions. Don't get me wrong. There were some good things to come out of Sunday's beat down of Detroit, but the best thing is that the Ravens spanked the Lions.

Every time I put out one of my mock drafts, readers tell me they think things would play out differently (chances are we'll both end up being wrong). Well, now you get a chance to play GM in my first-ever reader NFL mock draft. Here's how it works. I'll post a daily poll where you can vote to decide what the team that's on the clock should do with its pick. To keep it simple, I'll give you five options for each pick. If you think I missed somebody, let me know in the comments section.

Addressing the annual American Legion convention in Charlotte last week, President Obama sugar-coated his defense of selective use of military force by reciting what's been done to cope with the Department of Veterans Affairs' failures to deliver promised benefits to returning troops. To only mild applause, the president cited efforts to deal with the backup of claims at various VA facilities around the county, a beefing up of mental illness care, access to more non-VA doctors, greater efforts to reduce veterans' homelessness and easing transition to civilian life.

Manchester Valley girls lacrosse coach Shelly Brezicki wore a headband emblazoned with the team motto, "Believe Big," for the Mavericks' first trip to the state semifinals Friday night. The No. 13 Mavericks kept telling themselves that as they showed their resilience. They took a quick two-goal punch from Queen Anne's then rallied with six straight goals. When that lead disappeared, they won key draws late in the game, including one by Haile Houck to set up Lizzie Colson's game-winner with 1:23 left.

The Ravens and Baltimore Orioles have long since moved on from their scheduling conflict last September that prevented the Ravens from hosting the regular-season opening game, an honor reserved for the reigning Super Bowl champions. However, the situation is back in the news again after the Detroit Tigers today moved the first pitch of their originally scheduled 7:10 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 8 against the Kansas City Royals to 4:08 p.m. to accommodate the Lions' "Monday Night Football" opener on the same night against the New York Giants.

Penn State football coach James Franklin paused Wednesday and - in an exaggerated deadpan manner - shouted a question to a member of his staff. "Hey, Lauren, do we have Maryland on the schedule this year?" the former two-time Terps assistant inquired. "Yeah, we do? Somewhere back there," Franklin said without the hint of a smile. Franklin - once in line to become Maryland's head coach - knows full well that the Terps will travel to Penn State on Nov. 1 as part of Maryland's inaugural Big Ten season.

Four lion cubs were born at the National Zoo in Washington on Sunday, less than two weeks after the first lion cubs born at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore made their public debut. The cubs, who have not yet been named, were born to 9-year-old African lion Shera after a seven-hour delivery, National Zoo officials said. The cubs and their mother appear to be healthy, and zoo staff are giving them space to bond. The litter was Shera's second and the fifth for the cubs' father, 8-year-old Luke.
