T he Ravens and New England Patriots are basically old school. They believe a great defense and a run-oriented offense have been the keys to winning Super Bowls, but both are preparing for a possible shootout Sunday. The winner will be the team that can provide the most pressure and the quarterback who can make the proper adjustments. New England has steady veteran Tom Brady. The Ravens have second-year upstart Joe Flacco, who has played well overall but has struggled in the past two games against blitzes.

Rivals Severna Park and host Broadneck stayed focused on keeping eight or nine players behind the ball in Tuesday night's Class 4A East regional final, as neither team wanted their season to end because of a defensive lapse or miscue. The tight defense led to 100 minutes of scoreless soccer, forcing penalty kicks to decide the winner. In the shootout, the 10th-ranked Falcons scored on all five of their attempts and goalie Brent Jones came up with a big stop to win the shootout, 5-3. "Once again, we come up against Broadneck and we knew they were going to be a difficult opponent," Severna Park coach Roy Dunshee said.

Baltimore prosecutors have dropped attempted murder charges against a 28-year-old man accused of initiating a movie-worthy shootout and car chase with three detectives in August in East Baltimore. Prosecutors never sought an indictment. Instead, on May 5, they offered Wayne Brown of the 4100 block of Chatford Ave. a plea to time served for stealing a car, a misdemeanor, after homicide detectives and prosecutors uncovered a host of problems, according to Brown's attorney. According to charging documents, three undercover detectives in the Violent Crimes Impact Division noticed a 1991 Lincoln Town Car in the 1700 block of Bradford St. that "appeared to get their attention."

The confidence that comes from being there before factored in big for the defending Class 4A state champion South River girls soccer team in Friday's playoff game at Broadneck. After 100 quality minutes of soccer ended with the teams tied at 2, the Class 4A East Section I final was decided on penalty kicks. The No. 8 Seahawks, who knocked off Bethesda-Chevy Chase to win last year's championship in a penalty kick shootout, felt right at home. After Madison Koenig, Kelly Longo and Alyssa Hill all scored on their chances and goalie Emily Proctor made a diving save on one of Broadneck's kicks, junior Katie Berkowitz neatly placed her shot to the right side - giving the Seahawks a 4-2 shootout win over the No. 3 Bruins.
