This season, the Towson football team had encountered its fair share of struggles in the first quarter, allowing opponents to score first in five of its last six games. That concern has now flipped to the final period. After surrendering 22 consecutive points -- including 15 in a 29-second span in the final minute of regulation -- in Saturday's 32-31 loss to No. 21 Delaware, the Tigers are questioning how they failed to protect a 31-10 lead early in the fourth quarter. Coach Rob Ambrose said Monday morning during a conference call arranged by the Colonial Athletic Association that the team has to develop a killer instinct.

Arundel coach Chuck Markiewicz thought his team seemed a bit nervous in the first part of Friday night's game at Old Mill. But once the Wildcats settled down, they took command. No. 6 Old Mill jumped out to a 14-point lead midway through the second quarter. That's when Arundel quarterback Jack Gordon and wide receiver Tyler Young helped the Wildcats make numerous big plays and score 40 consecutive points en route to a 66-34 rout which ended the Patriots' 19-game winning streak. That streak was the Baltimore area's longest active one, and Old Mill (5-1)

The No. 2 Reservoir volleyball team was in dire need of a spark. The Lady Gators had just been picked apart by River Hill outside hitter Maddi Lee and were down 1-0 in games in the Hawks gymnasium. Reservoir captain Jamie Huffman huddled the team together, and yelled, "Ladies, we have all the momentum!" She was right, as the team reeled off three straight games to win, 3-1 (21-25, 25-15, 25-15, 25-19). "It was only one game, there's still four more to play if we needed to," Huffman said.

Bel Air wanted to keep the ball out of Aberdeen guard Kashif Brown's hands last night. The plan worked nicely - for the first three quarters. Brown took command in the fourth quarter, scoring 19 of his game-high 28 points to help No. 9 Aberdeen rally for a 72-66 victory over host Bel Air in an Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference game. The 6-foot, 160-pound Brown was able to get into the lane in the fourth period much more than earlier. Brown often tried to create for 7-foot center Robbie Jackson (16 points, 14 rebounds)

After winning the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference girls basketball title last season, some of Archbishop Spalding's veterans figured it wouldn't be too hard to repeat - until McDonogh showed them otherwise just before Christmas. The No. 4 Cavaliers learned a valuable lesson with that loss, and the change of attitude fostered success in their next conference game as they rolled over No. 8 Roland Park, 84-48, Wednesday night. "That changed everything," Cavaliers senior Camille Calhoun said of the 56-39 home-court loss to No. 3 McDonogh on Dec. 15. "We needed that because we were thinking we were too good for everyone.

After Arundel quarterback Cooper Hibbs used a no-huddle offense to put together scoring drives on his team's first two possessions Thursday night, third-ranked Old Mill adjusted by getting out of its zone defense and using multiple blitz packages to lock him down. The Patriots then put the ball in the hands of their best playmaker, Rob Chesson, and took control, scoring seven consecutive touchdowns en route to a 47-10 victory before an estimated 3,000 at No. 5 Arundel. Chesson had 233 yards on 34 carries with five touchdowns as Old Mill solidified its top spot in the Class 4A East rankings and made itself the lone undefeated team in Anne Arundel County.

College Park -- Before yesterday's game against Miami, Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen led his team in a private prayer. They prayed for Miami, and for the friends and family of defensive tackle Bryan Pata, who was fatally shot Tuesday night after practice. They also prayed for themselves, and when it came down to explaining the 14-13 win that followed, the only answer everyone seemed to agree on was "faith."

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Not even a concrete wall could quell the bedlam resonating from the visiting team's locker room yesterday at Scott Stadium. Although his words were muffled, the emotion in coach Ralph Friedgen's voice was clear, and his post-game victory speech was soon replaced by booming baritones singing the Maryland "Victory Song." The players and coaches barked out "M-A-R-Y-L-A-N-D" in unison, the finale to a celebration of their 28-26 come-from-behind win at Virginia - the program's first victory here since 1990.
