The biggest thing the Sparrows Point girls soccer team stressed at halftime of Friday's game against No. 9 Catonsville was being sure to respond favorably if the Comets scored. So when the visitors did score a tying goal midway through the second half, the Pointers had a chance to apply what they discussed. They did so impressively. Sparrows Point came right back, getting a goal from Jamie Shiflett three minutes later and went on to claim a well-deserved, 3-1 upset win over Catonsville.

In last weekend's regional football semifinal, Pikesville probably faced the most highly motivated team in the entire state tournament bracket: Sparrows Point. A week earlier, the Pointers had a chance to beat Pikesville on the last play of the regular-season finale, but Panthers linebacker Nolan Hart tipped the ball away from a Sparrows Point player in the end zone to seal a 35-28 Pikesville win. That brought up Part Two for the Baltimore County rivals: the Class 1A North region opener.

In a season full of stellar performances, Smithsburg starting pitcher Josh Miller saved his best for last. The senior tossed a complete game shutout and struck out 10 to lift the Leopards of Washington County to the Class 1A state championship, defeating Sparrows Point 9-0 at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen. Pointers senior ace Josh Icenrode started despite a broken finger that sidelined him for two weeks. The injury appeared to affect his control; after walking only eight batters all season, Icenrode walked 10 against Smithsburg.

Will Marshall was a frail freshman starter for Sparrows Point the year the Pointers went 0-20 and earned a region basketball playoff berth by defeating Catoctin in a coin toss.His physical stature hadn't changed much the next year when Marshall and his teammates scraped their way to a 3-17 record.His 6-foot-5, 170-pound frame was as slim and trim as ever last season when the Pointers turned things around and finished 15-5.But though Marshall's physique hasn't undergone any drastic changes during the past four years, his skills and contributions have, much to the delight of Sparrows Point coach Russ Lingner.

"Oh, baby. Oh, baby. It's over. The monkey's off our backs," screamed Russ Lingner, running up and down the Pointers sideline.For host Sparrows Point, the 20-6 win over Milford Mill was something to scream about. The victory was the team's first since Nov. 2, 1989, and broke a string of 30 consecutive losses.

If you're packing for the Memorial Day weekend in Ocean City, leave the laser pointer at home - as usual - and don't even think about buying another. On Monday, the city council voted unanimously to ban the sale of laser pointers in Ocean City, including the boardwalk. The ordinance also bans the sale of "assisted-opening" knives or switchblades. Both bans are effective immediately. Not only can you not purchase the laser pointers, but the ban forbids having them in your possession when on public property.

The Town of Ocean City is taking multiple steps to increase safety on the boardwalk this summer, police officials said. Visitors on Memorial Day will notice increased surveillance cameras placed in strategic locations along the boardwalk. The city has always had a few cameras in position but those were mostly used for tourism purposes, said Lindsay O'Neal, spokeswoman for the Ocean City Police Department. "We will have dozen or so cameras total on the boardwalk - and we will have one of our employees monitoring the cameras," said O'Neal, adding that in the past the cameras were not generally used for policing purposes.

Advocates of the new three-point rule are getting their wish. Three-point goals in the National Professional Soccer League are up.In an attempt to increase scoring, the league's rules committee changed the minimum distance for a three-point goal from a 50-foot line to a 45-foot arc, making it a much easier shot from the sides in particular.NPSL teams have scored 91 three-point goals in 61 games, compared with 161 in 240 games all last season.The Spirit is prospering from the change. With 14 three-point goals in 12 games entering tonight's meeting with the Buffalo Blizzard at the Baltimore Arena, the Spirit is second in that category to the Dayton Dynamo, which has 15.The season was only a month old when, on Nov. 19, the Spirit tied the club season record of 11 set in 1992-93.

The 3-point shot can easily and quickly turn the tide of a basketball game. For Coppin State, however, 3-pointers have been a rare commodity. As of Sunday, the Eagles (5-11, 2-1 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) ranked 262nd among 345 Division I teams in 3-point accuracy, connecting on just 31.0 percent (104 of 336) of their attempts from deep. They have converted less than 31 percent of their 3-pointers in eight games this season, and coach Fang Mitchell said the team's shooting woes should hint to players that other options might be more effective.

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but in this space this year, we will provide a look ahead, rather than back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what coach Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to watch as the Terps get ready to play Notre Dame at Comcast Center on Wednesday night.
