By the middle of the fourth quarter of Morgan State's 28-3 win over Bowie State at Hughes Stadium on Saturday, running back Herb Walker Jr. had gained 118 yards, marking the third straight game in which the team had a 100-yard rusher. But with 3:27 left, the redshirt sophomore was stripped of the football by Bulldogs junior linebacker Robert Burke, and redshirt junior outside linebacker Jonathan Harris pounced on the loose ball at the Bears' 41-yard line. Normally, that might have been the end of the day for Walker as he had nothing left to prove and there seemed to be no point in putting him back in at risk of injury with Morgan State holding a 14-3 advantage.

A lackluster offensive display against the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday night notwithstanding, John Harbaugh and the Ravens have been sharp when it comes to overturning plays this season. Harbaugh improved to 5-of-6 in challenging officials' rulings. He won two against the Jaguars. On first down-and-goal from the Ravens' 3-yard line in the first quarter, Harbaugh successfully challenged an initial ruling that Maurice Jones-Drew was down by contact at the 1 prior to the Jaguars running back getting stripped by free safety Ed Reed . After review, the Ravens were awarded the ball at the 1. Inside linebacker Jameel McClain recovered the fumble.

With 29 goals in 14 career starts - including a pair of behind-the-back tallies and one over-the-shoulder flip - Maryland's Jay Carlson has developed a reputation as a goal scorer. But the junior attackman has developed an aspect of his game that few have noticed this season. Carlson ranks second in ground balls among the No. 1 Terps (4-0) who are not junior faceoff specialist Charlie Raffa. His 14 ground balls are second only to senior long-stick midfielder Michael Ehrhardt's 15, and as coach John Tillman pointed out, Ehrhardt plays the wing on faceoffs.

WASHINGTON -- The Mount St. Mary's men's lacrosse team had a better showing Wednesday against Georgetown than it did in a loss to No. 11 Maryland last Saturday. But it still didn't produce a win. The Mountaineers scored four goals, one more than their output in a 16-3 loss to the Terps, but lost 10-4 to the host Hoyas before an announced 453 at Multi-Sport Field. Junior midfielder Clayton Wainer scored two goals and junior attackman Christian Durham and fifth-year senior midfielder Greg Mulvaney each scored once for Mount St. Mary's (0-2)

Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs joked that rookie cornerback Jimmy Smith finally earned the Ravens emblem on his helmet. Smith, the team's first-round pick in April, finished with three tackles, one pass breakup and one interception that led to a Ray Rice touchdown in the Ravens' 31-24 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday. It was quite a showing for Smith, who got more snaps as the third defensive back in the team's nickel package. "It felt amazing to be out there and contribute to the team after such a long time of being out," said Smith, who had missed four games after suffering a high left ankle sprain in the season opener on Sept.

Whether the goal of an NFL franchise is worth the price to state and city governments was debated before a national television audience early today, with a football-hungry Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke among the participants and a local naysayer bumped from the lineup.Speaking on the ABC show "Nightline," Mr. Schmoke said ... ... TC football team is part of the "glue" holding a community together. "You have to have a balance. You have to have many things to make a livable community," he said, particularly for a city that had its team "snatched away."

It was a combination of hard work and an abundance of scoring.Loyola scored on powerful dodges, off crisp passes in transition and on extra-man situations. But Loyola's relentless offense wouldn't have occurred if it hadn't dominated possession by winning the ground-ball battle and faceoffs.Behind four goals by Chris Purpura and Mike Morris, No. 4 Loyola stomped visiting No. 8 Severn, 16-5, yesterday in an MIAA Conference game. It's the highest goal total for Loyola against a conference opponent this year.

I recently purchased three balled and burlapped trees at a local garden center. When they delivered the trees, the balls were wet and loose. I went ahead and planted the trees. Should I be concerned? When purchasing trees, it is very important to examine the root balls that are supporting the trees. Trees with large, solid root balls are more likely to have strong, healthy roots than those with small, loose balls; and they are more likely to survive. Unfortunately, most consumers look only at the trunks and branches and then select the trees with the straightest trunks and most uniform tops.

When No. 10 Washington College and No. 2 Dickinson meet in Wednesday night's Centennial Conference tournament semifinal, it will be a rematch of the April 13 regular-season meeting in which the Shoremen suffered a 15-10 setback in Chestertown. If Washington (12-3) harbors any hope of pulling off the upset and tagging the Red Devils (15-0) with their first loss of the season, the Shoremen must avoid surrendering runs that plagued them in the first contest. Dickinson scored all five goals of the second quarter to turn a 3-2 deficit into a 7-3 advantage, embarked on a 4-0 spurt in a span of 1 minute, 46 seconds of the third period to take a 12-6 lead, and then scored three unanswered goals in 2:03 of the fourth quarter to assume a 15-9 advantage.

The score was tied with a little more than 11 minutes to go in Monday night's 3A semifinal between No. 6 Westminster and No. 12 North Harford when Maddy Walsh, on the attack, carried the ball into the circle, stumbled and fell. "It was like everyone stopped playing, waiting for a whistle," said Westminster's Meghan Macera. "The ball was there and I just knocked it into the net. " That play made all the difference at Franklin High. The goal stood, and No. 6 Westminster won, 2-1, to return to the state finals.

LOS ANGELES - The ball came to him like a bounce pass in a pre-game drill, into Robert Horry's warm hands, 24 feet from the rim. Catch and shoot, just like practice. All Vlade Divac had wanted to do was kill the clock, get out of this hostile arena and live to tell about knocking off the Los Angeles Lakers twice in less than 48 hours on their home floor. But when Divac, the Sacramento Kings' center, slapped the ball away from the basket with nothing but good intentions, one of the game's great playoff clutch shooters suddenly had Game 4 - not to mention the series - in his sights.
