Middletown (13-2) of Frederick County scored two first-hald goals and beat top-seeded Patapsco (12-2), 2-0, in the state Class 1A-2A championship game yesterday at Arundel High.Five minutes into the game, junior midfielder Kari Hoffman scored, after a brilliant save by Patapsco keeper Teresa Wrzosek.With seven minutes remaining in the half, sophomore striker Rachel Levine pounded a shot into the right corner, after causing Wrzosek to commit.At 11 minutes, 52 seconds in the second half, Patapsco's Brandi Van Meter apparently has scored off of a loose ball in front of the Knights net, however, the goal was nulified, as officials ruled that the whistle had blown for a stoppage of play after goalie Amy Lowe was inadvertenly kicked during the fracas.

MIDDLETOWN -- The Francis Scott Key Eagles traveled to Middletown believing they could beat the undefeated Knights.That fact alone shows just how far the program has come this season.And there the Eagles were, lining up for the tying extra point with 5:11 left in regulation.The Eagles instead went for the win with holder and backup quarterback Brad Stonesifer faking and looking across the middle in the end zone, but his pass through traffic went in and out of the hands of Mitch Plank.Middletown nailed down the win after it got the ball back.

With a little more than five minutes left in yesterday's 2A state championship game at UMBC, defending state titlist Hammond couldn't have asked for a better scenario.The Bears had just completed a 7-0 run to take a 43-37 lead over Middletown, Hammond's biggest lead of the game. And the Bears had done it while several starters had watched from the bench in foul trouble. All signs pointed to another championship.Middletown had other ideas. First, the Knights charged back with eight unanswered points to take a 45-43 lead with 1:24 left.

Middletown quarterback Sean Ganley completed just five of 17 passes against No. 3 Overlea last night, but he made them count.In a game where neither team could establish much of a running game -- thanks in part to swamp-like field conditions -- Ganley was the difference, leading the fifth-seeded Knights to a 17-7 victory over the top-seeded Falcons (11-1) in a state Class 2A quarterfinal at Dundalk Community College.Middletown (11-1) will meet the winner of today's Allegany-Wicomico game in the championship game at College Park next weekend.
