The Light (like in Kurt) is back on at Arundel.Arundel started the season ranked No. 1, lost 4-2 to Old Mill and April 4 was ripped 13-4 at No. 7 Severna Park with ace Kurt Light injuring his arm in that game. But the wishful thinkers had better beware because Light is back and so are the Wildcats.After pitching just five innings in the last nine days, Light returned to the mound for No. 6 Arundel yesterday in Millersville and showed why he is a two-time All-Metro pitcher.Light (3-1) used three pitches -- a heavy fast ball, slider and straight change -- to baffle top-ranked Old Mill, 4-0, on a two-hitter played in just one hour and 30 minutes.

Kurt Light said he loves his team's chances of repeating as champions at this week's Continental Amateur Baseball Association 18-and-under World Series in Columbus, Ohio. But, like the rest of his teammates on Gunther's Little Orioles, the hard-throwing right-hander is well aware of the tough road that is ahead."We'll have to face every team's ace because we're the defending champs," said Light, a two-time All-Metro performer from Arundel High who will have to leave the tournament after the round-robin round to attend the Adidas Area Code Games in Long Beach, Calif.

A coach not afraid to make moves usually wins more close games than he loses and Chesapeake coach Jim Simms is one of them.Yesterday in Millersville, Simms ordered a batter intentionally walked, loading the bases and putting the winning run on second with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. Jared Vogt then retired the final batter to give the No. 6 Cougars a 3-2 victory over top-ranked Old Mill.The result leaves Chesapeake (13-4, 12-2) a half-game ahead (16-game schedule) of Old Mill (15-2, 11-2)

It's a Sunday sports smorgasbrowse.What was supposed to be a pitching showdown Friday between No. 10 Severna Park's Pat Boucher and No. 4 Arundel's Kurt Light turned into a lopsided affair. The Falcons knocked Light out early en rout to a 13-4 victory over the Wildcats in a South Division showdown. Boucher went the route for Severna Park, striking out seven and walking two.Tomorrow, No. 3 Old Mill travels to No. 2 Chesapeake in another potential classic pitching matchup, this time in the North.

It was as close to a replay as it gets when No. 7-ranked Old Mill used a three-run first inning and the pitching of Mike Ziegler to stop top-ranked Arundel, 4-2, in Gambrills yesterday.Ziegler spun a six-hitter with five strikeouts and one walk almost to duplicate last year's initial meeting between the two Anne Arundel County powers.Last year, Ziegler pitched a five-hitter with five strikeouts and one walk for a 3-2 Old Mill (2-0) victory over the Wildcats (1-1) in their March meeting.Even more oddly, the 6-3, 225-pound Ziegler threw the same number of pitches, 86, yesterday as he did in last year's victory.
