Take the 6-feet-wide lacrosse goals of today and widen them a few miles. Strip away the painted boundary lines and plant a tree or a stone somewhere far away, maybe where the next country starts. Multiply the number of team members from 10 to 1,000, and you've got lacrosse the way it was originally played -- back in 1636.The Native-American way."We lived by what the Creator had given us, and lacrosse was one of them," says Wes Patterson, founder and director of the Iroquois National Team, which will be competing in this week's 1998 International Lacrosse Federation World Championship at Johns Hopkins University.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Even if the Orioles end up losing to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series this week, there's a sense that the experience itself will help the club going forward - especially for the younger players who didn't participate in the 2012 postseason. "It's huge, especially because I hope we are back here next year and the near future, and hopefully I am starting one of these games," rookie right-hander Kevin Gausman said. "Any time you have success in the postseason, it definitely helps, not only yourself but your confidence level and also says a lot about your career.

For Ravens center Jeremy Zuttah, it was a strange feeling to return to Tampa for the first time since being traded to the Ravens in March in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2015. Zuttah had played and started for the Buccaneers for six years before the offseason transaction. “There was a time when I was bitter,” said Zuttah, who was signed to a five-year, $18 million contract extension after the trade. “Once I got to Baltimore, that was out the window. I'm just happy to be a part of this organization.” On Sunday, Zuttah had to adjust to lining up on the opponents' sideline and getting dressed in the visitors' locker room.

GAGS AND ZANY comedy are the high notes for three nights of laughs and slapstick humor as Manchester's firefighters produce their 58th annual play in the theater above the firehouse.Since January, their funny bones have been at work to weave quirky elements into a comedy already tipsy with overripe characters and a murder to solve. "Love is Murder," a mystery, was written by Tim Kelly."It's about a bunch of romance writers who get together for a television special and then a dead body shows up," said Gary Eppley, who plays Leon Ketchem, a befuddled television producer.

Pilling couldn't jam with the best of them.He could wail his saxophone for the most raucous version of "You Are My Sunshine" one moment, then tone it down the next to a somber rendition of "Harlem Nocturne."

Archbishop Spalding midfielder Marissa Brown sent a perfect cross to the middle in the closing minutes of the game against visiting Catonsville on Monday, and forward Sarah Ensor one-timed a shot that was headed on goal. But Comets defender Lauren Vogelpohl was where she needed to be - between Ensor and the goal - to block the shot. The ball was cleared immediately after. If there was one play that depicted the solid 80 minutes of play from both sides, it was that one. Both teams had scoring chances, and both simply played better defense as No. 4 Spalding and No. 13 Catonsville played to a 0-0 draw.

When the Detroit Tigers last came to Baltimore in May, right fielder Torii Hunter left firmly ensconced as the chief villain in road grays. Miguel Cabrera, the two-time reigning American League MVP, took up that mantel during the ALDS. Cabrera, the reigning two-time American League Most Valuable Player, had a hand in nearly every play - good and bad - on either team's ledger Friday, as his Tigers fell 7-6 with another eighth-inning bullpen implosion. The 2012 Triple Crown winner, who homered in the eighth inning of Game 1 and took his time rounding the bases, opened the Tigers' attack with a two-out single in the first inning Friday.

It seems like Delmon Young has been in the major leagues for more than nine years. Maybe that's because he came to the majors so young, or maybe because he's in the postseason every year. His bat has always earned him a job. Throughout years ragged by injuries, off-the-field issues and even weight clauses in his contract, hitting has always been the easy part. After his three-run, pinch-hit double Friday afternoon led the Orioles to a 7-6 comeback win over the Detroit Tigers in Game 2 of the American League Division Series, Young was asked whether he had ice in his veins.

In August, Lee Hull put all of his eggs in Robert Council's basket when the rookie head coach tabbed the redshirt senior as Morgan State's starting quarterback, and not even a poor showing in Saturday's 15-14 loss to Norfolk State has changed Hull's opinion. Council had his worst performance as a passer on Saturday, failing to complete 15 of his 19 attempts and gaining just 38 yards. He also lost a fumble on the Spartans' 1-yard line after a 12-yard run on the opening drive of the game for the Bears (2-3, 1-1 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference)

In Johns Hopkins' 33-14 rout of Moravian on Sept. 20, senior quarterback Braden Anderson posted career highs in passing yards (218) and completion percentage (73.5). It took Anderson only one week to surpass those totals, throwing for 359 yards and connecting on 76.3 percent of his passes in Saturday's 42-26 victory over Centennial Conference foe Muhlenberg. Add a career-best four touchdowns, and it's easy to see why Blue Jays coach Jim Margraff called Anderson's performance the best of his career.

According to coach Ed Hottle, Stevenson's best start in school history has been a long time coming. It's also a product of inspired play by the defense. Through four games, no opponent has scored more than 19 points in a single game against the Mustangs, who are tied for 12th in Division III in points allowed (9.8), rank 18th in yards surrendered (247.8), are tied for fourth in interceptions (nine) and eighth in takeaways (12). So how does a defense that in 2013 allowed 24.2 points and 370.2 yards per game and collected 11 interceptions among their 17 takeaways improve so dramatically?
