Speed and quickness prevailed in Saturday night's Class 3A state basketball championship, but it came down to the final seconds. Milford Mill used its transition game and perimeter defense to win its first state title since 2005, edging Damascus and 6-foot-5 forward Kelli Prange, 40-37, at Towson's SECU Arena. “It feels surreal,” Millers senior Qierra Murray said. “After the Aberdeen game [in the regional final], I had a dream that night that this was going to happen. It's still unbelievable, but it really feels good.” Prange - a senior headed for George Washington - scored 20 points and had 17 rebounds, but against the quicker Millers, the Hornets' perimeter game never got going.

Old Mill's girls soccer team (6-2), ranked No. 10, had to forfeit Tuesday's 2-1 win over Arundel because it mistakingly used an ineligible player, said coach Bruce Sponsler.Sponsler said the player had received a red card during last Friday's game and should have sat out the next game. A new state rule says that a player receiving a red card for any reason must miss the next game. In the past, that only applied to players ejected for fighting.Sponsler said in a statement yesterday: "I accept full responsibility for our forfeit loss to Arundel.

Long before Patterson Mill's girls basketball team made its third straight state tournament, junior point guard Sam Herman made a bold prediction. “I've been saying all season, 'The third time is the charm,'” Herman said. “'We're coming out and we're winning it all.'” The No. 10 Huskies backed up that statement on Saturday, winning their first state championship. Using stellar defense and a late 10-point run, Patterson Mill rallied to dethrone three-time defending champion Calvert, 33-30, for the Class 2A title at Towson's SECU Arena.

It was the first time that she did.Chaney stopped a shot from Old Mill's Michelle Salmon in the second round of last night's shootout, and Severna Park's Stephanie Roberts followed with the game-winner, as the second-seeded Falcons defeated third-seeded Old Mill, 3-2, in the 3A-4A Region II girls soccer semifinals.The teams had played to a 2-2 tie in regulation, and neither side scored in two 10-minute overtimes.

Watching the fourth quarter of Wednesday's girls basketball game between No. 11 Old Mill and Severna Park, it sure looked as if the Patriots were trying to catch up. Visiting Old Mill had the lead, but they rushed their offense so much that it played right into the Falcons' catch-up plan. Severna Park cut the Patriots' 13-point third-quarter lead to two with about a minute left in the game before Old Mill finally slowed it down and managed to hold on for a 51-44 victory. "That's the youth," said Patriots coach Rick Smith Sr., who starts a freshman point guard and two sophomores.
