Greg Mihalko and many Carroll County football fans probably will never forget the last game he played for South Carroll.There was so much triumph, joy, sadness, irony and possible tragedy surrounding that final game it would take a novel to describe it all.But the bottom line is that Mihalko escaped serious injury on what turned out to be the last play of his celebrated career for the Cavaliers last Friday night at Westminster.For 20 minutes, a stadium full of fans watched in silence as Mihalko lay on the field and was attended to by doctors and trainers after he took a clean hit in the head from Eric Zepp's shoulder pad on a 3-yard run at midfield.

It was Greg Mihalko left, Greg Mihalko right and Greg Mihalko up the middle last night as South Carroll bullied neighborhood rival Liberty into submission, 26-6, at South Carroll.Mihalko and the Cavaliers established their superiority on the ground early and built a 26-0 lead at halftime.Mihalko, the 1993 Carroll County Offensive Player of the Year, carried the ball 21 times for 107 yards and one touchdown in the first half.South Carroll coach Gene Brown gave Mihalko most of the second half off and went to his second- and third-string players midway through the fourth quarter.

The South Carroll Cavaliers were in dire need of a spark when coach Jim Carnes called timeout with 3:12 left in the third quarter last night against visiting Linganore.Shortly after, senior guard Greg Mihalko provided the boost.Mihalko hit two three-pointers late in the third to give the Cavaliers life and they went on to a 52-43 win over Linganore in a game that featured as many turnovers and missed shots as points.Mihalko's first three -- coming with three minutes remaining in the third -- were the first points for the Cavaliers in the second half and got them within six of the Lancers at 35-29.

South Carroll won this neighborhood football tussle by quickly establishing how it was going to run the ball at the Liberty Lions.The Cavaliers came out and pounded Liberty with running backs Chris Lyerly and Greg Mihalko one play after another to set the mood for the evening.It was Lyerly up the middle and Mihalko running outside, making life miserable for Liberty (0-4).In a little more than seven minutes, South Carroll (3-1) had already rambled to a 13-0 lead. The Cavaliers held off the charging Lions in the fourth quarter for a 28-14 victory.

South Carroll quarterback Tom Luster kept his word last night to fallen teammate Greg Mihalko.Moments before Mihalko, who had carried the ball 36 times for 207 yards and two touchdowns, left the field in an ambulance with a neck injury, Luster leaned over to Mihalko and told him: "I love you Greg. We're going to win this game for you."Mihalko reached out and squeezed Luster's hand in an emotional scene in the middle of the field before the door closed on the ambulance.A teary-eyed Luster went back into the huddle with his team, facing a second-and-seven at the Westminster 47-yard line with four minutes left in the game and the score tied at 21.Luster took charge and five plays later, he tossed a 25-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Esworthy to lift the Cavaliers to a 27-21 victory and the 1994 Carroll County championship at Westminster last night.

COACH OF THE YEAR* Jim Carnes, South Carroll -- Once again this season, Carnes found himself coaching a team that wasn't blessed with an abundance of talent. But he found a way to coax a 9-13 record out of the Cavaliers and win the county championship with a 6-0 mark. The 9-13 overall record also turned out to be tops in the county when fast-starting Francis Scott Key faded badly to finish at 8-12. Carnes was aiming at least for a .500 record after finishing 10-10 last year. That became difficult when standout guard Greg Mihalko suffered a neck injury in the final football RTC game of the season and didn't fully recover until more than halfway through the season.

The entire scenario at South Carroll last night was too much for Westminster to overcome.The pre-game music on the stage was loud, the Cavaliers' fans were into the game in a big way and South Carroll played with more emotion in the first half than it has all season.The Cavaliers created a lot of problems for the Owls by switching defenses a lot in the first half, and South Carroll senior guard Greg Mihalko was pumped up.With the festive atmosphere surrounding him, Mihalko scored 23 points to lead South Carroll to a 57-52 victory over the Owls that clinched at least a tie for the Carroll County championship for the Cavaliers.

PLAYERS OF THE YEAR OFFENSE -- Greg Mihalko, South Carroll, RB, Jr. -- When a football player thinks like Mihalko does, he's bound to be a lot of trouble for the opposition no matter how small he is. "I like to think I punish the tacklers when they try to stop me," said Mihalko (5 feet 9, 170 pounds). It was this mentality that made the versatile Mihalko a force for the Cavaliers on offense. He carried the ball 111 times for 628 yards, had 16 catches for 129 yards, scored nine touchdowns and a two-point conversion that beat Wilde Lake, 15-14, in the season opener, returned a kickoff 75 yards and a punt 80 yards for touchdowns.
