As a four-year starter for the No. 2 River Hill girls soccer team, All-Metro forward Alex Hamer has scored more than her share of big goals. The one she put in Thursday against Atholton was right up there. The Hawks were celebrating Senior Night with a chance to wrap up their fourth straight Howard County championship and Hamer made it happen. Finding space between defenders, she ran on to a pass from Lauren Hessler and buried a shot from 14 yards away with 18 minutes left, giving River Hill a 1-0 win over the visiting Raiders.

RAVENS PASSING GAME: The big play has been mostly absent lately from the Ravens' passing game with Joe Flacco completing only nine passes of 20 or more yards over the last four games. Speedy wide receiver Jacoby Jones has just four catches during that span and tight end Dennis Pitta has also seen his production decrease. However, Flacco has been a different quarterback at home, averaging 317.8 passing yards per game and throwing seven touchdowns to two interceptions. RAIDERS PASSING GAME: While the Ravens have said otherwise, Carson Palmer probably isn't the quarterback that he was when he used to torment the Ravens as a Cincinnati Bengal, beating them nine times in 13 games.

You might have heard that the Harbaugh brothers had no time to discuss the potential for fights at the Ravens' and San Francisco 49ers' joint practices last weekend. Ravens coach John Harbaugh said it was a bit of an indictment on the media that all anyone could focus on when two NFL teams got together was how often they would fight, and his brother, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, accused the media of practically salivating over a negative moment to broadcast. The teams made it three days with nary a skirmish -- wide receiver Steve Smith won the locker room pool -- and we were all left to ponder whether the brothers Harbaugh had helped the NFL turn over a new leaf on fight-free joint practices.

1 Run Ray Rice. It's stating the obvious, but the Raiders rank 29th against the run and have given up 21 rushing touchdowns. 2 Stop the Raiders' ground game. With the second-worst passing attack in the NFL, Oakland can only win by running the ball. 3 Finish off Oakland. The Raiders have outscored teams 136-80 in the second half this season. - Jamison Hensley

The Ravens' defensive intensity has been amazing in the postseason. Two tough, physical games and a cross-country flight could take a toll. But this team -- and especially this defense -- won't be denied. Ken Murray's prediction: Ravens, 14-12. When the Ravens have the ball The Ravens' offense has been hit-and-miss for a month now, struggling for points perhaps even more than in October's five-game touchdown drought. Back then, it produced field goals. The Ravens are averaging 78.3 rushing yards per game over the last three games, and just 104 passing yards over the last four.

LOS ANGELES -- Jeff Hostetler now wants the reputation to go with the ring.Even though he quarterbacked the New York Giants to a Super Bowl victory over the Buffalo Bills three years ago while filling in for Phil Simms, Hostetler has yet to be ranked among the game's top quarterbacks.But Hostetler took a step toward getting the respect he wants yesterday, when he bombed the Denver Broncos for 294 yards and three touchdowns to give the Los Angeles Raiders a 42-24, AFC wild-card playoff victory before 65,314 fans at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

Ravens quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson spent a third straight day in Oakland interviewing with the Raiders for a coaching position Thursday. Despite media reports that Raiders owner Al Davis has recently been interviewing candidates for an assistant coaching position, it should not come as a surprise if Raiders coach Tom Cable is fired and Jackson replaces him, according to a source. The Raiders could not be reached for comment. The Raiders like Jackson, 45, because he played a major part in the development of Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer, and Oakland also likes what he has done working with Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco the past two seasons.

Atholton sophomore Matt Sklar first picked up a tennis racquet when he was 5 years old and started playing competitively when he was 10. But when he came to Atholton last year, he saw tennis differently. He has enjoyed and thrived in the team atmosphere and loves the support he receives and gives to teammates. After reaching the state tournament playing doubles with partner George Mao last year - they finished 24-2 - Sklar moved to No. 1 singles this season and has excelled. After capturing the Howard County singles title and leading the Raiders to their third straight Howard County Cup team crown on Saturday, he took an 18-1 mark into District 5 region play on Thursday.

Any chance of Colgate pulling an upset disappeared in a 92-second span early in the fourth quarter as No. 1 Loyola Maryland defeated the Raiders, 12-6, in a Patriot League tournament semifinal Friday at Ridley Athletic Complex. Colgate (9-6 overall, 4-5 Patriot League) had managed to pull within 7-4 with two goals in the closing minute of the third period, but the Greyhounds opened the final quarter with three straight goals, stunning the Raiders and turning the momentum.

Colgate coach Mike Murphy sees a lot of similarities when he looks at Loyola Maryland and the Raiders' last opponent, Cornell, especially in their respective ability to pounce on transition opportunities and turn them into goals. He said his team's ability to understand and account for that will go a long way to determining the outcome against the Greyhounds on Saturday in Hamilton, N.Y. "I think as you look at this team you have to be great in transition," Murphy said. "They are lethal six-on-six on offense but may be one of best transition teams with [midfielder]

Middle Tennessee State linebacker Roderic Blunt issued a public apology Tuesday for his role in an incident during Navy's 24-6 win Monday in the Armed Forces Bowl in which Blunt was seen reaching into Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds' face mask after he was down and poking his eye. Blunt, who was not penalized after the third-quater play, was later ejected after his second of two unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties. Reynolds missed three plays while Navy staffers installed an emergency visor on his face mask.

Michael Huff spent his final season with the Oakland Raiders last year primarily lining up at cornerback, forced to cover some of the top receivers in the game. Although Huff didn't embarrass himself as he started all but two games on the outside because of injuries in the secondary, it wasn't his natural position. It's an altogether different situation for Huff with the Ravens after he signed a three-year, $6 million contract this offseason to replace Pro Bowl free safety Ed Reed.
