HOUSTON - - For all of the euphoria felt by Navy's players after last week's heart-stopping overtime victory over Air Force, those on the offensive side of the ball also felt frustration. The Midshipmen struggled to move the ball against a rival that is intimately familiar with their triple-option offense, and it bothered them. They won't have that feeling after overwhelming Rice in a 63-14 victory Saturday. Navy's offense held the ball for 40 minutes, 36 seconds; scored touchdowns on nine of its 11 possessions; and amassed 537 yards, its highest total since the 2008 season opener against Football Championship Subdivision opponent Towson.

Long Reach's best chance at toppling top-ranked River Hill last night was to do what no football team had done this season, contain the Hawks' dynamic attack and find a weakness in their fearsome defense. The host Lightning forced three turnovers, but it was not nearly enough, as River Hill's defense and special teams combined for four touchdowns en route to a 50-7 victory. River Hill, the defending Class 2A state champion, has outscored its opponents 264-22 in five games. "We did some good things, but overall, it was our worst effort of the year," River Hill coach Brian Van Deusen said.

1 Protect the ball. It's unlikely the Browns will be able to move the ball to get good field position, except on turnovers by the Ravens. Cleveland has the worst offense in the NFL.2 Be aggressive, which means blitzing and punishing rookie QB Tim Couch early. The Ravens' cornerbacks also need to press up on the receivers at the line of scrimmage.3 Score early. The longer a team stays around, the more confidence it gains. The Ravens need to take away the Browns' will to survive early.

The all-new, all-exciting North Carroll football team got blindsided yesterday by much bigger and much stronger Linganore, which thrived on the soggy turf in Hampstead. Yesterday's action completed a game that lightning halted in the second quarter Friday night.The Lancers outweighed the Panthers on both the offensive and defensive lines by an average of 35 pounds a man, allowing Linganore's junior running back, Mike Cleveland, to move the ball easily through the mud on the way to a 41-0 victory in a Central Maryland Conference game.

WASHINGTON - It's bad enough that the Washington Wizards can't seem to play well enough long enough to put together a nice long winning streak or even a sustained period of good play. But after last night's 87-82 loss to the Detroit Pistons, the Wizards couldn't even agree on why they weren't able to win, and what's worse was that all of the reasons were valid. From head coach Doug Collins came the complaint that his team (12-16) stopped moving the ball, a complaint that stirs from time to time around the Washington locker room.

Having a powerful offense is nothing new for Hereford and coach Steve Turnbaugh. The Bulls (12-0), who will play in the Class 3A state semifinals this weekend, have scored 555 points this season and are averaging 46.25 points per game. In 1997, Turnbaugh led the Bulls to the state championship and set state records for points scored in a season (602) and average points per game (46.31). Scoring points is the only similarity those two offenses have, however. "This team is a completely different style than the '97 team," Turnbaugh said.

College Park -- After his team's 31-14 loss to No. 4 West Virginia last week, Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen addressed his players in the locker room and spoke of the need to execute more big plays - an exciting aspect of the game that has been lacking this season in the Terps' rather pedestrian offense. That could change this weekend, when Maryland travels to Winston-Salem, N.C., to play Wake Forest, the defending Atlantic Coast Conference champion.

There can be no doubt that I have established some kind of mystic bond with the Ravens that allows me to predict with amazing accuracy what they are going to do from week to week. Did anybody else say last week that Steve McNair and the Ravens would "carve up" the New Orleans Saints at the Louisiana Superdome? Is anybody else 6-1 against the spread picking games involving our beloved local NFL franchise? It's almost eerie how I know what's going to happen before it does, unless you count the World Series and my performance against the spread in the other 13 NFL games last week.

Something different happens when a soccer ball finds its way to the feet of St. Vincent Pallotti senior striker Annesia Faulkner. Opposing defenders go on high alert. The Panthers' sideline supporters stop chatting and completely turn their attention to the field. And teammates and coaches alike expect to see something away from the norm. When Faulkner turns on a ball - precise, explosive and mesmerizing - a show begins down the left side. The ending is often a goal. "When Annesia decides she wants to score, she scores," said Pallotti coach Mike Vawter, who has coached Faulkner for seven years, including club ball.

LOS ANGELES -- During my unplanned work week in Southern California, it dawned on me that Los Angeles and Baltimore have something in common. They don't play professional football here, either. I suppose that was a cheap shot, but it's pretty discouraging when you realize that you're 50 and overweight and you've got a better chance of scoring on the road than the Ravens. Three points? The Ravens celebrated the return of quarterback Kyle Boller by scoring a field goal on their first possession of the game and then apparently decided that being one of the first teams up in next year's draft might not be such a bad thing after all. Of course, this isn't just about Boller, who has played in just two of the team's seven losses.

CHICAGO -- The first one is always the hardest, so when Anthony Wright converted a third-and-three with a 4-yard scramble up the middle, he figured the Ravens were well on their way to an exhilarating fourth-quarter comeback victory. As it turned out, a storybook ending was replaced by the facts of life in this season gone awry. Penalties and sacks define this offense more than precision and execution - needed in any comeback - and the Ravens were penalized and sacked right into a 10-6 loss to the Chicago Bears yesterday at Soldier Field.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Washington Wizards nearly pulled off the ultimate in Houdini acts last night, but couldn't pull an ugly win out of their hats over the defending Eastern Conference champion New Jersey Nets. The Wizards shaved a 16-point first-half deficit down to two in the fourth quarter, but just couldn't overcome their horrid shooting as the Nets seized a 79-65 win. The 65 points were an all-time low in the 41-year history of the Washington franchise. Afterward, Washington coach Doug Collins looked forlorn, searching for some kind of combination that will bring life to his frustrated team.

The Bayhawks and Lizards will vie for the crown for the fourth time in five years starting at 1:05 p.m. today on the fast, artificial surface of Boston University's Nickerson Field, While it's been a safe bet for some time that the Bayhawks (11-2) would be contending for their second title (first since 2002), Long Island's final berth was not nearly so predictable.
