Perfection - once again - is one game away for the No. 1 Boys' Latin lacrosse team. The Lakers started fast in Tuesday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference semifinal against No. 3 McDonogh. And then, every time the Eagles came with a push, they had resourceful responses in coming away with a 16-10 win at Johnny Unitas Stadium. The win puts the Lakers at 17-0 on the season and in a familiar position: One win away from a perfect season and the MIAA crown.

McDonogh midfielder Brinton Valis set the tone in the first minute of the Eagles' playoff game against St. Mary's on Friday. He made a sharp fake to get past a defender and then took a direct path to goal, neatly placing a shot up high for the game's opening score. No. 3 McDonogh made sure to stay focused throughout, always staying a step ahead of the No. 4 Saints to come away with an 11-6 win in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference quarterfinals. Valis and Bobby Austin each scored three times and Jackson Morrill added two goals and three assists as the Eagles improved to 15-4.

"Love Among the Ruins," by Robert Clark. W.W. Norton. 333 pages. $24.95. Lately, I'll be reading a book, come across a bogus line of dialogue, an improbable turn of plot unpersuasively written, an interior monologue that stinks of unprocessed journal entry, and I'll have to stop reading the book. I'll try to get back into the narrative, but no matter what psychological game I play with myself, I just can't do it. It's as if the book has broken in my hands. The spell is weak. The book doesn't work.

Forty people from 23 countries took the oath of allegiance Thursday in the garden of the William Paca House, not far from Maryland's Capitol. It was one of more than 100 naturalization ceremonies planned for this week in special locations, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
