The last time the Havre de Grace field hockey team won a game, some of the players on this year's roster were toddlers. By beating winless Aberdeen 1-0 on Wednesday, the Warriors ended a losing streak that stretches back at least to 2002, and perhaps further. "That's all we wanted," said Chelsea Loveland, the team's second-year coach. "We just wanted the one. " Havre de Grace senior Marissa Diaz scored off an assist from fellow senior Colleen McCormick and goalie Kateri Peters had one save.

One of the reasons Seth Walker wanted to come to Calvert Hall was because of the school's spirited rivalry with Loyola Blakefield. Walker, who was home-schooled last year, not only got his first opportunity to play against the Dons on Wednesday, he also scored one of the biggest goals in the No. 7 Cardinals' young season. The sophomore got the game-winner in No. 7 Calvert Hall's 1-0 victory over No. 3 Loyola in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference matchup.

OK, so the Orioles have lost five straight , but it's not time to panic. Not yet. Last year's team had just one losing streak over three games, a six-game skid from May 26 to June 1.  But just four of those losses came on the road, as opposed to the five straight home losses that make up the team's current losing streak. That's not that big a deal, because we know the Orioles play well on the road. But during that six-game streak last year, Orioles manager Buck Showalter called a rare team meeting in Toronto to rally his players, to remind them that they were better than the losses showed and that staying consistent in their approach would pay off. That talk obviously worked.

The Orioles figured out a simple way Monday night to bust out of an offensive skid that cost them three games at Wrigley Field over the weekend. Get home -- and start homering. And keep homering, in consecutive at-bats, if possible, until you've beaten the opposition into submission and set a little franchise history. In a 9-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night, the Orioles had 14 hits -- including five home runs by five different players -- to snap their three-game losing streak.

Two of the area's most prominent women's lacrosse programs took the field Wednesday, each searching for a way to end an unfamiliar losing streak. On a stormy night at Loyola Maryland, the No. 17 Greyhounds used an impressive defensive effort, holding No. 18 Towson to one goal in the final 38 minutes, 53 seconds and two shots in the second half in a 7-6 come-from-behind win. Trailing 5-3 late in the first half, Loyola (3-4) scored four of the last five goals, including Sydney Thomas' game-winner on a move from behind the net with 15:44 left, to snap its four-game losing streak.

The UMBC men's basketball team is mired in a three-game losing streak, which would be more than enough to depress players and coaches alike. But that attitude has not set in just yet, according to coach Aki Thomas. “I'd say that the mood has been not bad,” he said Wednesday morning. “It's been pretty good actually. Usually, after a three-game losing streak or any losing streak, you'll get guys maybe putting down their heads a little bit. But our guys have responded with some really competitive practices and really focusing on getting better and improving.

The Orioles quietly packed their belongings late Sunday afternoon and dispersed to various parts of the country, carrying more baggage into the All-Star break than they could have possibly imagined. After an ejection-marred 8-6 loss to the Boston Red Sox, the Orioles' losing streak stands at seven games. They've won just six of their past 27 contests after a four-game winning streak had brought them within a game of .500 on June 10. They went just 1-9 on their first-half-ending road trip, their worst stretch away from Camden Yards in almost two years, and were outscored 75-33 in the process.

LANDOVER -- Disgusted with losing, Chris Webber came out and made a bold prediction prior to last night's game: The Washington Bullets would beat the Milwaukee Bucks. Then Webber and rookie forward Juwan Howard loaded the rest of the team on their backs, and took them on a ride that ended weeks of frustration.In probably the best game that the two have played side-by-side since joining the Bullets, Webber came two assists shy of a triple-double with 29 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists and Howard tied a career-high with 31 points as Washington defeated the Bucks, 114-110, last night before a sellout crowd of 18,756 at USAir Arena.

When quarterback Keith Randall completed a 7-yard touchdown pass Friday to Jordan Bledsoe in the second quarter, Owings Mills was on its way to breaking a 53-game losing streak in football that dates five years. "We led 6-0 at the half, and our kids could really feel the win," Owings Mills coach Steve Lurz said. "We knew we had to keep our composure in the second half." Abe Tadros added a 6-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, and the host Eagles (1-3) went on to beat Loch Raven, 12-0.

I'm not the only one that has thought this; it's not exactly a novel concept. But these Orioles remind me so much of the 2012 team that made the playoffs and snapped the 14-year losing streak. And this club is better. It's so much more experienced. They are excelling in extra-inning games (12-3) and are pretty good in one-run games (20-16). These players think they can win against anyone, which is exceptionally important. And I don't think they have played their best baseball yet. They haven't really gone on a run where their offense, defense and pitching is clicking at the same time.

HOUSTON - The Orioles' offense didn't exactly erupt against the Houston Astros on Saturday afternoon, but it was productive enough to finally scrape out a much-needed win three days into their trip to Texas. These Orioles have drawn their share of criticism for being overly aggressive at the plate, complaints only compounded by two frustrating games here in which they scored just one run each night. But this time, they allowed patience to guide them to victory. They received their third straight quality start and this time took advantage of a well-timed strong outing from struggling ace Chris Tillman in a 4-1 win over the Astros before an announced 29,609 at Minute Maid Park.

With just under two minutes to play and his team clinging to a one-goal lead, Calvert Hall junior Timmy Kelly dodged around a couple of Gilman defenders and deftly shot the ball into the corner of the goal. Kelly swung his arms in jubilation as his teammates erupted on the sidelines. Just one minute earlier, sophomore Michael Fanshaw had given the No. 6 Cardinals their first lead of the second half and they were ready to put a three-game losing streak to conference foes behind them.

Johns Hopkins has enjoyed a 10-2 advantage in its series with Albany, but the Great Danes pulled off a 10-9 upset last spring. The Blue Jays, who are 3-2 at Homewood Field this season, are trying to avoid three home losses for the first time since 1996. No. 19 Albany (4-4) has alternated wins and losses in its last five games, but is still considered the favorite to capture the America East tournament for the second year in a row. While much of the national attention has centered on the starting attack of seniors Miles and Ty Thompson and junior Lyle Thompson , the offense has gotten contributions from a midfield that includes sophomore John Maloney (13 goals and two assists)

Archbishop Spalding's varsity football team still is waiting to see if it has the metro area's longest losing streak. The Cavaliers' 6-0 overtime loss to Douglass of Baltimore City on Sept. 14 could be overturned.Because of a Maryland Scholastic Association C Conference rule, games ending in a tie are not to be decided by any tie-breaking procedures or overtime periods. However, because both coaches agreed, an overtime period was conducted at Douglass."It surprised me when the refs said that we'd play overtime," said Spalding head coach Greg Furhman.

COLLEGE PARK  -- When the Maryland men's basketball team got back to campus after Sunday's double-overtime loss at Clemson, one of the first places the Terps headed was to the training room for ice baths to help with their recovery. What also helped Maryland was that the Atlantic Coast Conference's last-place team was in town. It took nearly until the end of the first half - and the banishment of sophomore forward Charles Mitchell from the team's bench by coach Mark Turgeon - for the Terps to find a spark in a 64-47 victory over Virginia Tech at Comcast Center.
