Isaiah Black threw a go-ahead 24-yard touchdown pass to Micah Till with 2 minutes, 14 seconds left, and Wise's defense held off a furious late drive by Quince Orchard to capture its first Class 4A football state championship with a 12-7 victory Friday night at M&T Bank Stadium. Black did not attempt a pass in the first half as the Pumas (13-0) from Upper Marlboro stuck to their run-heavy offensive script, but the junior took over at just the right time in a game controlled by two dominant defenses.

With both C. Milton Wright and Quince Orchard unwilling to give ground on defense, the deciding factor in last night's Class 4A girls soccer championship was which team had the poise to put home penalty kicks.

It's the first time the Maryland public schools have gone to penalty kicks to decide a state crown.
