Shelby Mercer and her Century field hockey teammates needed only the motivation of a county championship to refocus Monday as they came off a loss that ended a nine-game winning streak. Knocking off No. 10 Westminster, which had won the past two county titles and six of seven overall, took precedence over everything else. So the No. 9 Knights started with a high level of intensity and held it throughout most of the game, beating the Owls, 2-1, to clinch the county title. Century (10-2-1, 6-0 county)

As Manchester Valley closed out the team's 26-7 win over rival North Carroll on Friday night, the PA announcer thanked fans for their support during the season and congratulated the Mavericks on posting a winning record this year. But that winning season isn't over. The Mavericks' win over North Carroll in the annual "Battle of the Bypass" game, combined with Northwestern-Baltimore High School's loss to Reginald Lewis High School earlier on Friday, clinched the first-ever playoff spot for the four-year-old Maverick football program.

Whether it's hosting "Inside the NBA" or calling a Major League Baseball playoff series, Ernie Johnson makes sports broadcasting seem easy. There has not been much joy for Orioles fans with the Birds losing the first two games of the American League Championship Series to the Kansas City Royals, and TBS delivering lackluster telecasts. The delay of the first pitch on opening night in Baltimore because super-bright TV lights on the set of the TBS pre-game show in center field were left on was an unforgivable gaffe.

The Ravens' starters that did suit up for Sunday's regular-season finale, began heading to the sidelines about midway through the first quarter. Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice went first, pulling on a winter cap and a black jacket. Quarterback Joe Flacco followed him a couple of minutes later after playing two uneventful series. By the early stages of the second quarter, they were joined by wide receiver Torrey Smith, center Matt Birk, cornerback Cary Williams and safety Ed Reed. With an AFC North title and a home playoff game next weekend already secured, the Ravens treated their regular-season finale at Paul Brown Stadium like a preseason game.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - In the days before last month's crucial meeting with the St. Louis Rams, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia characterized the game as the biggest of his NFL career. He wound up playing miserably in the 27-14 loss to the Rams, and to a degree, he says now he was dragged down by the pressure he so readily heaped on himself before the season-worst 13-for-36 passing performance and 25.9 efficiency rating in the Dec. 9 game. It won't happen again in today's first-round playoff game against the Green Bay Packers, Garcia said, because he has learned from his biggest mistake of the season.

As a Houston Texans fan, I went to the playoff game against the Ravens and I loved my game-day experience in Baltimore. The fans were both knowledgeable and willing to credit Houston's defense rather than criticize the Ravens' offense. We were treated to an exciting game that could have gone either way. But the best part of the experience was how friendly everyone was toward us Texans fans. Daniel Schein, Houston, Texas

The Orioles starting rotation had a 3.61 ERA in the regular season, the fifth-best mark in the American League. But in the postseason, the club's starters have struggled. Right-hander Bud Norris lasted just 4 1/3 innings in Saturday's Game 2 of the American League Championship Series, allowing four runs and nine hits. Norris struck out three batters and walked none. In five postseason games, four of the five Orioles starters have failed to go more than five innings. The exception was Norris' ALDS Game 3 outing, in which he tossed 6 1/3 shutout innings against the Detroit Tigers, allowing just two hits with six strikeouts and two walks.

When the American League Division Series started, I definitely felt like we were getting the second string team from TBS for the Orioles and Detroit Tigers. But after spending three games with them, I will take Brian Anderson, Joe Simpson, Dennis Eckersley, Jaime Maggio and the production team for this series anytime TBS wants them to call another O's game. With the O's winning 2-1 on Sunday and advancing to the American League Championship Series, sure there's a tendency to feel good about everything related to Sunday's game.

There's no secret: America's favorite past time is made even more past time-y with a cold beer (or two). In that spirit, we're offering a drinking game as you watch the Orioles start their momentous post-season run. This game can work for the Detroit games, starting Thursday, and beyond. Necessary disclaimer: Drinking in excess is bad, mmkay? Don't drink and drive, don't drink and operate heavy machinery, don't drink and start bar fights, don't drink and adopt animals. Take a sip ... • For every visible bubblegum bubble Adam Jones blows.

For all that's gone wrong lately in sports, there's Sean Smith. The outfielder for the York Revolution of the independent Atlantic League has played in the minor leagues for 14 seasons. He's 32. He'll likely never play in the major leagues. But on Friday night he became an Internet sensation. Smith hit a game-tying home run in the eighth inning of the Revolution's playoff game against Sugar Land, but as he hit first base he slipped, tearing his right ACL, according to reports.

NEW YORK -- Over the past two decades, there probably has been no player who has caused the Orioles more heartbreak than Derek Jeter. And in his final game at Yankee Stadium, he found a way to beat them one last time. This wasn't the infamous "Jeffrey Maier home run" in the 1996 American League Championship Series or those 14 straight losing seasons in which Jeter and the New York Yankees used the Orioles as a division punching bag. Times have changed. When the teams took the field for Jeter's final game wearing pinstripes at Yankee Stadium on Thursday night, it was the newly-crowned AL East champion Orioles -- not the Yankees -- who were playing with something at stake.

NEW ORLEANS -- The New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles will try to exorcise first-round postseason demons today when they meet in an NFC wild-card game in the Superdome.The Eagles (11-5) have been bounced out in the first round in their last three trips to the playoffs in 1988, 1989 and 1990. The Saints (12-4) were knocked out in the first round in 1987, 1990 and last year.Who's more frustrated?"I guess each town is frustrated," said Saints linebacker Sam Mills.

There wasn't much unpacking of the Ravens Week 1 loss to Cincinnati, given the Ray Rice story's explosion the following day. But the farther the team gets from that season-opening loss to the now 3-0 Bengals, the better it looks. I don't want to spoil my Week 3 Power Rankings, but Cincinnati might be the best team in the NFL. If I had a contract, it would obligate me to preface any mention of quarterback Andy Dalton by saying he hasn't won a playoff game. Now that I've said that, I'll add that he's still being Andy Dalton, with 240 yards passing per game and two touchdowns.
