When the best game that almost every Ravens' player had ever been a part of was finally over, Joe Flacco threw his hands in the air, Justin Tucker emphatically pumped his fist and Ray Lewis dropped to his knees, reduced to tears. Tucker's 47-yard field goal 1 minute and 42 seconds into the second overtime ended a thrilling and exhausting divisional round playoff game and sent the Ravens into the AFC championship game for the second straight year. The 38-35 victory over the Denver Broncos earns the Ravens a date with the winner of Sunday's game between the New England Patriots and Houston Texans.

COLLEGE PARK - Recent weather problems have prompted Boys' Latin lacrosse coach Bob Shriver to jokingly call this the "spring of having to handle things." The Lakers had another unusual thing to handle yesterday - a 10 a.m. game start. Top-ranked Boys' Latin took awhile to awaken, struggling throughout the first quarter. But a three-minute illegal stick penalty against No. 5 St. Mary's helped the Lakers to a five-goal second period, and they rolled to a 9-7 victory over the Saints in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference opener for both teams.

Megan Frazer helped break a few Tar Heels' hearts when she scored with 2:10 left in the second period of sudden-death overtime to give No. 1 Maryland a 3-2, come-from-behind victory over No. 2 North Carolina at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex.

Philadelphia - Despite not having its leading scorer for most of the game, the Baltimore Blast (6-1) bounced back from its only loss of the season with a convincing 18-6 victory over the Philadelphia KiXX (3-5) last night in front of an announced 6,759 at the Wachovia Spectrum. After scoring the Blast's first goal, Machel Millwood left in the first quarter with an ankle injury. Teammates Denison Cabral, Billy Nelson and Giuliano Celenza filled the void by scoring two goals each. Although the Blast took an early 6-2 lead on goals by Millwood, Nelson and Cabral, the loss of its leading scorer seemed to slow the team temporarily because it wouldn't score another goal until the end of third period.

Orlando, Fla. -- Going into last night's game against the expansion Orlando Sharks, Blast coach Danny Kelly made sure his team would not have a letdown after starting the season 2-0. "Detroit showed us last year that an expansion team is capable of making it to the finals. We were not going to take Orlando lightly," he said. His team clearly got the message, routing the Sharks, 17-6, in a Major Indoor Soccer League game. The Blast set the pace early with Jamaican native Machel Millwood giving Baltimore a 2-0 lead.

The Blast controlled play at both ends and never trailed while breaking a four-game losing streak. The second present came after the game when the team spent several minutes signing a ball to give to its new leader after his first victory as a coach. Kelly took over after the suspension of Tim Wittman last week, and the Blast lost in his first game Friday.
