Chesapeake Bayhawks entered Saturday's Major League Lacrosse game in dire need of a confidence boost. They found just what they were looking for in Rochester. Facing a winless foe that was playing for the first time since replacing its head coach, the Bayhawks jumped to an early four-goal lead, then held on in the second half for a 13-11 win before an announced 8,410 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Brian Phipps, a rookie out of Maryland who tallied a career-high 21 saves, said the effort came after a team meeting about commitment following last weekend's lopsided loss to Boston.

An 8-7 double-overtime loss to the Rochester Rattlers a week ago left the Chesapeake Bayhawks with their fifth defeat in six games. But the play of the defense planted a few seeds for hope. The unit allowed a season low in goals and also limited a Rochester offense that had scored 18 goals in a rout of the Florida Launch on June 1. Chesapeake goalkeeper Kip Turner, an Annapolis native and Severn School graduate, made a season-high 18 saves. “Rochester scored 18 goals the week before, and we held them to seven through overtime,” Bayhawks coach Dave Cottle said during a league-wide conference call on Wednesday.

Morgan State was hoping to take a step last night toward a respectable finish to a rough season, but the Florida A&M Rattlers, led by sophomore quarterback Albert Chester II and senior running back Rashard Pompey, refused to let that happen. Chester produced 202 net yards of offense, completed 14 of 16 passes and rushed for two touchdowns, while Pompey rushed for 101 yards and a score, as the Rattlers put away Morgan State, 27-16, last night before 3,429 at Hughes Stadium.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - There was no hiding the fact that Florida A&M was having a hard time putting its Gulf Coast Offense into gear. For 29 of the 30 minutes in the first half against Morgan State last night, the Rattlers' offense was clearly out of sync. "Give Morgan State credit," said FAMU head coach Billy Joe. "They played a nearly flawless game and we struggled," though, in the end, the Rattlers earned a 21-12 win. Dropped passes, overthrown balls, two turnovers and just 66 yards of offense by FAMU helped Morgan State (0-2)

With Morgan State winless after five games and 0-1 in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play, Florida A&M seemingly would be favored to win Saturday's game at Hughes Stadium in Baltimore. That, however, is not the approach Rattlers coach Earl Holmes is taking. After all, Florida A&M is only 1-3 and has dropped its past three games, most recently a 76-0 loss to then-No. 4 Ohio State on Sept. 21. So the idea that the Rattlers are catching the Bears at the right time was preposterous to Holmes.

IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. - The rumble continues. It's from the Bayhawks, whose runaway 20-12 triumph over the Rochester Rattlers last night gave the Baltimore team wins over every Major League Lacrosse team this season. It also came from Mark Millon, the sensational scorer who shredded the Rattlers' defense for eight goals and four assists, setting MLL single-game marks for goals and points. After an opening-game loss at home to Long Island, the Bayhawks have won five straight, four on the road.

Guard Justin Black said the memory of last season's Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship-game loss fueled Morgan State all season and that the Bears are determined to make it over the final hurdle this year. Black took matters into his own hands in Morgan State's tournament opener Thursday night, making his first six shots from the field in the second half and finishing with a game-high 29 points as the third-seeded Bears blitzed No. 6 seed Florida A&M, 81-68, in the quarterfinals at Scope Arena in Norfolk, Va. "I just got into a rhythm," said Black, a first-team All-MEAC selection who scored 14 points and hit two 3-pointers during his second-half barrage as the Bears expanded a two-point halftime lead to 19 with less than 11 minutes left.

Morgan State and Florida A&M have taken different paths to Saturday's game at Hughes Stadium in Baltimore. The Bears have dropped their first five games of the season and are 0-1 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference after Saturday's 27-21 loss to Norfolk State . The Rattlers (1-3) have yet to play a league contest and have lost their past three. But they are coming off a bye week. So does the bye week give Florida A&M an advantage? Morgan State coach Donald Hill-Eley thinks so. “This game is all about preparation,” he said Tuesday.

I'd love to be an invisible presence in the room the next time Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin sit down for a chat. The high stakes drama of the Cold War is gone, but the Russian president is the American president's nemesis on everything from sarin gas attacks in Syria to gay rights in Russia. To see them spar would be enlightening entertainment. After intelligence specialist Edward Snowden leaked information about U.S. cyberspying earlier this year, he went on the lam and found refuge in Moscow.

The Bayhawks' first film session of the year may not be the team's last if they continue to play the way they did against the Rochester Rattlers on Saturday night. Chesapeake found a rhythm on offense early and often en route to a 12-8 victory before an announced 6,129 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. With the win, the reigning Major League Lacrosse champions improved to 8-5 and clinched a berth in the upcoming playoffs for the fourth straight year, with one regular-season game remaining.

Despite a no-goal outing from Mikey Powell, the Bayhawks' balanced offense used a fourth-quarter spurt to beat the Rochester Rattlers, 22-13, at Johnny Unitas Stadium yesterday. After an assist on the first goal, Powell was held scoreless. Rattlers defender Michael Howley marked Powell, frustrating the crafty attacker into committing five turnovers and sending five shots wide. But with Howley focused on Powell, the Rattlers' zone was compromised, creating wide-open opportunities for the Bayhawks' midfielders.

The big question entering last night's Major League Lacrosse game at Homewood Field was which Bayhawks team would show up against the Rochester Rattlers. Would it be the team that dominated all phases of the game in its season-opening 16-13 win over Long Island, or the team that stumbled to consecutive road losses last weekend? The 4,762 fans in attendance saw both versions. While the Bayhawks struggled during a couple of stretches, they were at their best when it mattered most as they registered a come-from-behind 13-12 win over the Rattlers (1-2)

Since 2006, the Chesapeake Bayhawks have won eight of 12 meetings with the Rochester Rattlers, including a 17-14 victory on April 27. But that game was the season opener for both teams, and Rochester has changed drastically since then. After a 1-3 start, the Rattlers have split their last eight meetings and - with a 5-7 record - are among five teams battling for the final two berths in Major League Lacrosse's four-team playoff. Rochester's offense has been buoyed by a pair of rookie midfielders in David Lawson and John Ranagan (Johns Hopkins)
