During each of the past two seasons, Poolesville of Montgomery County has vanquished one Baltimore City team only to have its unbeaten season end a week later in Baltimore at the hands of Dunbar. In 2003, the Falcons defeated W.E.B. DuBois at home only to lose to Dunbar, 30-22, on a touchdown with 23 seconds left in regulation. And in 2004, the Falcons again edged W.E.B. DuBois only to be thwarted by Dunbar, 34-14. The difference in both instances was the Poets' Nathan Irby, The Sun's 2004 All-Metro Offensive Player of the Year, who combined for 708 rushing yards and four touchdowns in the two wins over Poolesville.

Poolesville. -- Fittingly, the highway into Poolesville is named for a long-time town commissioner. These days it seems that the five-member town commission is about all people talk about here. It is the vortex of a classic growth vs. slow growth controversy fueled by the deep pockets of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Washington.The issue, which has embittered activists on both sides, demonstrates the severe pangs that can convulse small communities in Maryland as the urban world the residents sought to escape inexorably catches up.Incorporated in 1867, Poolesville was a crossroads in the farmland of northwestern Montgomery County until around 1970.

This fall, Glenelg (17-1) went into the field hockey season without Alyssa Parker, one of just two girls to ever finish a high school career in the nation with more than 100 goals and 100 assists, and captain Mary Kate Olson. Together they accounted for most of Glenelg's scoring in back-to-back championships over the past two years, whether it was scoring the goals or assisting on others. In the Class 2A title game Saturday, five different players scored as the Gladiators continued their run by winning a third straight title, 5-1, over Poolesville.

With just three weeks left in the regular season, a lot of things can change in the regional football playoff standings as teams jostle for the four post-season berths in each region. Seven local teams top their regions, including the Baltimore area's three remaining unbeaten teams - Arundel, Westminster and River Hill. Quite a few teams, however, need critical wins down the stretch to keep their seasons going into mid-November. The standings are not based only on win-loss records but on point averages. Teams get more points for beating opponents with good records than for beating teams with poor records.

CHESTERTOWN - After seeing her team ranked No. 1, Ginger Kincaid worried all season that the only place Glenelg could go was down. It turned out Kincaid didn't need to worry much. Her Gladiators returned to Washington College Saturday and repeated as Class 2A state champions with a 3-0 win over Poolesville. "The first time was really new to us. We'd never won before," said Glenelg's Meagan Guthrie, who scored the team's Gladiators' first and last goals. "To come back this time, the odds were against us, but we were able to pull it off," said fellow senior Alyssa Parker, who beat five defenders to score on a length-of-the-field run and also assisted on Guthrie's second goal.
