Old Mill just couldn't find a way to stop Meade quarterback Marcus Smith in Friday's Class 4A East Region final. Smith's running sparked the visiting Mustangs on offense throughout the night, especially on the team's final drive. That's when he ran for 65 of his 144 yards and scored on a 6-yard touchdown run with 22 seconds left to give No. 7 Meade a 28-21 victory over No. 6 Old Mill, the defending state champion. Meade (10-2) has won tough road playoff games in consecutive weeks.

Marcus Smith had six receptions for 116 yards and three touchdowns to lead No. 8 Meade past No. 4 Broadneck, 41-31, in a Class 4A East Regional semifinal Friday night. The Bruins (8-3) led 17-14 in the third quarter before the host Mustangs (9-2) put together the next three scoring drives to pull away. No. 13 Dunbar 44, Carver 0: Coleman Blackston scored the first two touchdowns, both rushing, and the host Poets (9-2) shut out the Bears (8-3) in a Class 2A North regional semifinal.

Ravens wide receiver Marcus Smith is out for the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, his agent confirmed Friday. Smith, who was vying for one of the top four wide receiver spots, injured his knee in the second quarter of Thursday's 23-0 win over the Washington Redskins. There is no timetable for Smith's surgery, but it could be performed in the next week if the swelling goes down. "He was having a good camp and had an opportunity for a lot of reps," said Kevin Omell, Smith's agent.

Few high school football games are so meaningful this early in the season, but No. 4 Old Mill's 30-20 win at No. 3 Meade Friday night gives the Patriots a considerable edge on their top county competition. The visiting Patriots used big plays to power their victory and avenge last season's loss in the regional final. Noah Fitzgerald had an interception and a fumble recovery, Devin Salisbury returned a punt for a 60-yard touchdown and Marcus Hicks ran for touchdowns of 35 and 44 yards.

Marcus Smith has stood out in training camp for his acrobatic catches and great hands. The rookie wide receiver stands out among his teammates for a different reason. Q: Did you ever have a nickname that stood out for better or for worse? A: Guys call me "Bullethead." I've been called "Bullethead" since college. These guys don't know me from college, but they still call me the same name. I don't know how it translates to me, though. Maybe my head's not shaped normal, I guess. It's nothing I can control.

REVIEWING THE RECEIVERS: : No one had a very good morning. Demetrius Williams dropped two passes, and Justin Harper also dropped a couple. Marcus Smith dropped a pass and was flagged for pass interference when he pulled on cornerback Frank Walker's jersey before catching a 30-yard bomb from quarterback Troy Smith. Play picked up in the afternoon when Harper made two eye-opening grabs over Walker, Williams ripped away a pass from cornerback Fabian Washington and Mark Clayton caught a perfectly lofted pass from Joe Flacco in the right rear corner of the end zone.

If the question is depth at wide receiver, the Ravens will plug in their reserves and crank out the answers this week in St. Louis. Because starters are generally excused from the preseason finale, and because Mark Clayton and Donte' Stallworth are hurt, Thursday night's game against the Rams will be a tale of survival. Of all the wide-outs who might play at the Edward Jones Dome -- and that could be as many as five -- only one figures to make the Ravens' 53-man roster. Will it be Demetrius Williams, the star-crossed, fifth-year veteran who has yet to live up to his big-play potential?

— Players and coaches often say that one play — whether made or missed — does not define a team or determine an outcome. What about two or three plays? That's the thought that will likely trail the Ravens into the offseason after falling to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-24, in an AFC divisional playoff game at Heinz Field on Saturday evening. From a holding penalty that wiped out Lardarius Webb's 55-yard punt return for a touchdown to Anquan Boldin's dropped catch in the end zone to T.J. Houshmandzadeh's fourth-down drop on the potential game-tying drive, the Ravens will be haunted by plays that could have changed the result and their destinations for next weekend.

Billy Cundiff's stay in Baltimore will last a little longer. The 30-year-old journeyman who ended last season as the Ravens' kicker will begin this season in the same role as Cundiff beat out 32-year-old Shayne Graham, who was cut by the team Saturday. Cundiff converted 15-of-20 field goals in 14 regular-season and playoff games last year, but the incumbent was thought to be the underdog against Graham, the fourth-most accurate kicker in NFL history who had been unceremoniously released by the Cincinnati Bengals in the offseason.

Saddled with an uncertain future, Marcus Smith made sure he addressed the past. Playing in his first game at M&T Bank Stadium since suffering a major knee injury that cost him last season, the wide receiver managed to avoid a similar outcome in the Ravens' 17-12 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. Perhaps surprisingly, Smith said his trepidation over returning to the site where he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee didn't occur Thursday night.
