As City standout senior guard Kamau Stokes hobbled off Edmondson's court on Friday, his arms draped over teammates on both sides, it looked as if the No. 1 Knights survived as much as won. In a physical and intense game played in front of a highly-charged crowd, City started fast and maintained its focus throughout to stay on course for a resilient, 65-57, win over the No. 6 Red Storm. Stokes, who banged his knee in the closing minutes but was able to return, scored a game-high 20 points.

The Lake Clifton boys basketball team doesn't have the flashy player who can pour in points. And the No. 10 Lakers often give up size any time they go up against the other top teams in Baltimore City. To make up for any shortcomings, they work hard in practice, play smart and tenacious team defense and, most importantly, believe in each other. After falling behind by a point at No. 7 Edmondson in the closing seconds of overtime on Tuesday, Lake Clifton was confident it would find a way to win. Senior Stephon Brown, a 5-foot-5 guard, made sure, hitting a jumper with nine seconds left in overtime to give the Lakers a grind-it-out, 43-42 win over the host Red Storm.

By Glenn Graham ,The Baltimore Sun The Edmondson boys basketball team has a largely different cast from last year's Class 2A state title team, but the new Red Storm certainly appear to have many of the same qualities. This year's team plays the same scrappy defense, shares the basketball on offense and has a knack for finding ways to win games. More proof came Friday at No. 5 Poly, where No. 6 Edmondson started fast and was able to maintain a safe margin throughout a 73-61 win over the Engineers.

HARTFORD, Conn. -- It turned out to be an entertaining night for Hartford's hometown fans, and though the game between the Whalers and the visiting Washington Capitals ended in a 1-1 overtime tie, both teams had reasons to be happy.Before the game, the streets were jumping outside the Hartford Civic Center. Kids were dancing as they crossed the street on their way to the game. Fans were standing on street corners trying to buy tickets: "Forty bucks. I have 40 bucks. Anyone got a ticket? One ticket?"

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals turned into philosophers last night after letting a point escape in a game in which they outplayed the Phoenix Coyotes from start to finish - or almost to the finish. The Caps took a second-period lead on a 5-on-3 power-play goal by Sergei Gonchar and held it until about seven minutes into the third period, before Ladislav Nagy tied the game and Tony Amonte, who was playing in his 900th career game, won it 1:20 into overtime, beating Caps goalie Olie Kolzig (12 saves)
