The Reservoir boys soccer team pushed forward immediately at Marriotts Ridge on Thursday. Goals soon followed. Quinton Simmons opened the scoring midway through the first half, and then Serigne Gueye and Stephen Bork scored three minutes apart early in the second to send the No. 9 Gators to a 3-1 win over the Mustangs. Reservoir, which got two assists and a dominating performance in the middle from senior Kyle Saunderson, improves to 4-1 overall and 3-1 in Howard County play.  After seeing a couple of quality chances go for naught in the early minutes, Simmons settled a long pass from Saunderson and then turned and fired a left-footed shot from 12 yards. The Gators put the game away early in the second half with two more quality finishes.

For the seniors on Marriotts Ridge's girls lacrosse team, putting their third state title in perspective wasn't all that easy. Wednesday's 18-5 Class 3A-2A title victory over Oakdale at UMBC sent the No. 4 Mustangs seniors off with the happy ending they wanted, but it was a split decision whether this championship was better than their first. "Freshman year was the best. Nothing can compare with that feeling," senior defender Alexis Zadjura said of the first girls lacrosse championship in school history.

Not much went right for the defending state champion Marriotts Ridge girls lacrosse team in the first 34 minutes of Monday's sectional final. No. 10 Century dominated possession and ran up a four-goal lead while the Mustangs were uncharacteristically sloppy with the ball and managed just five shots. The No. 4 Mustangs, however, made up for it by scoring the final five goals of the game to take an 8-7 victory in the Class 3A-2A South Section I final. Senior midfielder Taylor Hensh scored three of her five goals in the finishing run as the host Mustangs won the toughest girls lacrosse section in the state.

Marriotts Ridge High School senior Tianhao Gao approached taking the SAT with one primary objective: score well enough to prevent needing to take it a second time. To say she accomplished that goal is an understatement. The Ellicott City resident, who also goes by Tina, scored a 2370, just 30 points from an overall perfect score and including perfect scores (800 each) in the math and reading categories. Her efforts were enough to draw the attention of the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars, appointed by the president to annually award students with one of the nation's highest honors for academic or artistic achievement.

From: California Price: $16 Serve with: Thai cuisine, fried chicken This is a wonderfully spring-like wine — dry but also very fresh, fruity and lively. There are hints of pears, apples, tropical fruit and citrus. It would match up well with spicy foods but also is perfect for outdoor drinking on an April or May spring day. Unlike some of the more hard-to-find wines praised here, this one is in wide distribution. -- Michael Dresser , The Baltimore Sun
