When Salisbury hosts York in Capital Athletic Conference tournament final Saturday at 2 p.m. at Sea Gull Stadium, it will be the first time the league foes have met since March 22, when the Sea Gulls won, 11-8. Salisbury coach Jim Berkman has had his eye on the Spartans ever since. “I've seen every game they've played since they played us,” he said Thursday afternoon. “So whatever they've changed, I've seen. We know who their guys are, and we know who we've got to stop, and we know who we've got to match up with, and we know what their tendencies are, and we've got to limit those tendencies.

Salisbury's 11-9 win over Stevenson on Saturday offered a little clarity into its postseason picture. If the No. 3 Sea Gulls (16-1) can close out the regular season with no losses and a Capital Athletic Conference tournament championship, they likely will be the top seed in the South Region of the Division III tournament. “Stevenson-Salisbury is always a big game to win,” senior attackman Luke Phipps (John Carroll) said. “We lost two [meetings] last year, so that was disappointing.

The founder of 1st Mariner launched the Baltimore bank as an alternative to big, faceless, out-of-state institutions at a time when banks based elsewhere had rapidly gobbled up 30 percent of the Maryland market. Now - 19 years and many acquisitions later - out-of-state banks control 80 percent of the pie. That change hasn't dampened the enthusiasm 1st Mariner's new owners feel for the bank. Just the opposite. The purchasing group with local ties, approved as the bank's winning bidder Tuesday by a federal bankruptcy judge, makes the same argument now that founder Edwin F. Hale Sr. offered in 1995: Baltimore needs this bank.

Ten-time national champion Salisbury owns a 10-6 advantage in this series, but reigning Division III national titlist Stevenson has won six of 13 matchups dating back to 2009. The Mustangs have won 20 consecutive games at Mustang Stadium and are 35-2 since its opening, while the Sea Gulls are 7-1 on the road this season. No. 3 Salisbury (15-1) has won five straight contests since a surprising 8-7 overtime setback to Capital Athletic Conference foe Christopher Newport on April 2. The defense ranks 23rd in the country after surrendering just 6.5 goals per game this spring.

Saturday's showdown between No. 2 Stevenson and No. 3 Salisbury is a prime opportunity for both sides. For the Mustangs (13-1), a win would extend their winning streak to 13 games and reaffirm their status as the reigning Division III national champion. For the Sea Gulls (15-1), a victory would serve as a vivid reminder that the program that has captured 10 NCAA championships is getting closer to adding No. 11 to the trophy case. For both teams, a victory would likely mean the top seed in the South Region of the NCAA tournament.

Saturday's matchup between No. 2 Stevenson and No. 3 Salisbury will almost certainly draw national attention and looms as a pivotal game for both teams as they jockey for position for the top seed in the South Region when the NCAA tournament opens May 7. The reigning Division III national champion Mustangs (12-1 overall and 5-0 in the Commonwealth Conference) welcome Widener (7-4, 5-0) to Owings Mills on Wednesday night for a key league battle that could determine the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament.

Passengers boarding the Grandeur of the Seas arrived Saturday at the port of Baltimore carrying their luggage, hopes for a relaxing vacation and, in some cases, extra vitamins to ward off illnesses that have plagued the ship's last two voyages. "We're very concerned, especially because it's been onboard twice," said Gwen Rivera of Millersville, Pa., who planned to make her 13-year-old son, Brock, swallow some Vitamin C as soon as they boarded the Royal Caribbean cruiseliner. Her apprehension was shared by many passengers after learning that the Grandeur of the Seas had been struck by a second outbreak of a gastrointestinal illness in the past two voyages.

Salisbury coach Jim Berkman is as candid as any coach in lacrosse. That honesty came through as he discussed the No. 2 Sea Gulls' surprising 8-7 overtime loss to Capital Athletic Conference foe Christopher Newport on Wednesday. “We didn't get it done on Wednesday,” Berkman said Friday morning. “We just weren't sharp. We weren't passing and catching well. We talked about a trap game all week, and we didn't play well. We threw numerous balls out of bounds playing catch with guys next to us on Wednesday that we hadn't done all season.

Brady Dashiell and Jesse Rabishaw got a few minutes and a few runs in No. 5 Salisbury's 13-7 victory over Ohio Wesleyan at the Landon School in Bethesda, but that was enough to satisfy - for now - a pair of former starters returning from injury. Dashiell, a sophomore, had missed two games because of injuries to his arch and ankle. Rabishaw, a junior, also sat out two contests due to a sprained ankle. While they didn't regain their starting jobs, they did contribute in the win for the Sea Gulls (6-0)

While Disney Cruise Line sailed to 13 first-place finishes in the 2014 Cruise Critic Cruisers' Choice Awards, Baltimore-based ships also cruised to Top 10 finishes in a number of categories.

The recently renovated ship, which returned to the port of Baltimore last May after undergoing $48 million in upgrades, also scored among the 10 best midsize ships for dining, embarkation, entertainment, fitness, public rooms, service and shore excursions.
