JEFFERSON CITY, Mont. - Sgt. Charles Horgan noticed immediately that real war happened without a soundtrack. Of course he knew this on some level, but he didn't realize how quiet it could be, there, in the desert of southern Iraq. He couldn't even hear the wind, standing in the turret of a Humvee with his fingers wrapped around the grips of a .50-caliber machine gun. He was ready to fight. He'd trained more than three years for this moment. He'd watched his favorite war movies over and over, memorizing scenes of heroism played out to the sounds of an epic score.

It was seven-plus minutes the North County football team will look back on when it comes to its 2008 season. And the tough decision at the end turned out not to be that tough at all. The No. 8 Knights (6-1) put together a memorable 14-play, 77-yard drive in the fourth quarter of their 22-21 win over previously undefeated and then-No. 4 Old Mill on Friday. After senior running back Dino Stevens scored from 1 yard out to cut the Patriots' lead to 21-20 with 5:09 to play, there was no question the Knights would go for two points and the lead.

For the Mount Hebron boys soccer team to claim the program's third state title and complete its first unbeaten season, the No. 3 Vikings needed a first from midfielder Zach Barnett and the usual from striker Mike Napolitano - all coming in the final eight minutes of yesterday's Class 3A final against No. 11 North Carroll. Barnett, a senior standout more accustomed to controlling the middle and distributing the ball, scored his first goal of the season with 7:33 left and Napolitano scored his 25th a few minutes later as the Vikings overcame a stubborn Panthers' defense for a resilient 2-1 win at UMBC Stadium.

With the game tied late, Morgan State freshman Timothy Mathis stole the ball from Chris Markwood, drove it down the lane and laid it in to give the Bears the lead with 1:11 left, and they were able to hold on for a 71-63 win over Maine last night before 2,372 at Hill Field House. "I didn't want to let my team down," Mathis said. "I didn't want to force anything, but whatever opportunity came up, I wanted to step up. The kid just put the ball out there and I took it." He was an unlikely hero for Morgan State, but that was the theme of the night.

COLLEGE PARK - No. 13 Duke scored a pair of goals just seven minutes apart in the second half and held off a furious offensive rally by No. 1 Maryland for a 2-1 win last night before 4,165 at Ludwig Field. It was the second loss for the Terps since taking over the top spot in the National Soccer Coaches Association poll last week. They lost in double overtime to William and Mary on Wednesday, 1-0. The Terps (5-2-1, 0-1-1 ACC) held a commanding 24-8 lead in shots, but were unable to convert several scoring chances.

ARLINGTON, Va. - Last week, Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry returned to Sept. 11, 2001. The senator criticized President Bush for remaining in an elementary school classroom seven minutes after the president had been told a plane had struck the second World Trade Center tower. Mr. Kerry said that had he been president at the time, "I would have told those kids very politely and nicely that the president of the United States had something that he needed to attend to." Mr. Kerry's actual decision-making ability, however, was exposed by Mr. Kerry himself July 8 during an appearance on CNN's Larry King Live.

LANDOVER - Leads are never safe around the Washington Redskins. For the third time in four games, Washington squandered a sizable advantage - 17 points this time - but managed to hold off the New England Patriots, 20-17, before 83,632 at FedEx Field yesterday. New England scored 14 unanswered points in the second half and had the final possession in Redskins territory with less than a minute left, but strong safety Ifeanyi Ohalete knocked away Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's pass to tight end Daniel Graham on fourth-and-three to give Washington a 3-1 record.

WASHINGTON - It's not often that a guy who plays only seven minutes and scores only two points draws the lion's share of attention after a game, but then, Charles Oakley isn't just any basketball player. Last night, Oakley's experience and knowledge were just what the Washington Wizards needed to pull out an emotional, 105-102 win over the Utah Jazz at MCI Center. Oakley, 38, in his 17th NBA season, had been largely an afterthought for the Wizards (5-4) this year, playing just nine minutes in Washington's season opener in Toronto on Oct. 30. But in a game in which experience was sprinkled heavily on the court, Oakley was the ace in the hole, entering in the last seven minutes, with the Wizards trailing by seven.

With each soccer game, the Centennial girls are putting their early season finishing troubles further and further behind them. Yesterday against county rival Mount Hebron, the visiting Eagles scored three times in the first 17 minutes, with forward Mandy Paizs having a hand in each of them. The speedy sophomore assisted freshman Brittany Kelley on the game's first two goals and then scored two of her own in the first half as the No. 3 Eagles parlayed a quick start into a commanding 4-1 victory over the No. 14 Vikings.
