No. 6 McDonogh beat No. 3 Archbishop Spalding on the Cavaliers' home mat Wednesday night, but the Eagles had plenty of help from their host. Spalding forfeited three matches - at 112, 189 and 215 pounds - giving McDonogh 18 points, but still challenged the Eagles before they pulled out a 36-35 victory with a decision in the final match of the night, a 4-1 win by freshman Travis Wood (152). "It's at the point in the season where both our teams have injuries and sicknesses," McDonogh coach Pete Welch said.

Here's betting that the Dallas Cowboys will beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl. By at least two touchdowns.And here's betting that Cowboys coach Barry Switzer won't follow up the big win by writing a self-help business book detailing his management style and how to apply it in the business world.A lot of sports figures are writing such books these days. Even marginal NFL coaches such as Minnesota's Dennis Green have published their advice to CEOs. Heaven help the stockholders.

Maybe Jerry Jones is trying to give the Fox Network its money's worth.The network is expected to lose big money on the $1.58 billion deal it made to take the NFC package away from CBS, but the Dallas Cowboys owner is giving the network a lot of entertainment value.The Cowboys' drive for their third straight Super Bowl next season should have almost as much intrigue as Tonya and Nancy.Jones' move last week in paying off coach Jimmy Johnson and then hiring Barry Switzer could have been a plot for one of those wacky Fox shows.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Switzer steadied a can of root beer in his hand so as to avoid spillage, then reached for stage props."This is all I did," said Switzer, banging his left hip into an innocent bystander. "I'm looking for flags, and there are none. So I went up to the official and demonstrated what happened. Comical. It was comical."Alas, that's how it ends for world champions. With their rookie coach doing curtain calls before strangers in a soggy, losing dressing room. Switzer's right.

Barry Switzer insists that it's easier to coach in the NFL than in college."It'd take two hours to talk about that," the Dallas Cowboys coach said last week. "I'd first start with [dealing with] the NCAA. I can start with 120 players vs. 50. I can start with every crisis and personal problem an athlete has [in college], he comes to see me. He doesn't walk through my door to say, 'Coach, I made an A on my test, or how's your day going.' He comes in there with a problem I've got to deal with."

On the first nice spring day of 2004, David Brown of Severn went to nearby Provinces Park for a walk. So did an 18-year-old who Assistant State's Attorney Kelly Poma said was looking to kill someone, anyone, for the thrill, according to Anne Arundel County prosecutors. "I went to the park to shoot someone," Terry Cooks Jr. told police, according to Poma. Cooks, now 19, went on trial yesterday on charges of first-degree murder and related counts stemming from the April 7, 2004, shooting of Brown, 52, who died five months later of his injuries.

The sorrow of two mothers over the fates of their only children -- one convicted of killing the other -- led to an emotionally high-pitched sentencing yesterday in an Anne Arundel County courtroom. Marjorie Johnson, the mother of slain teenager Doray D. Jones, collapsed in tears and had to be carried from the courtroom as Stephanie Sloan, the mother of Jones' killer, pleaded for her forgiveness and for leniency from Circuit Judge Michael E. Loney. Loney sentenced Anthony Deyonko Switzer to serve 40 years in prison for the murder of Jones and the attempted murder of two women loading their children into a car in what Switzer's friends told police was Switzer's desire to "catch a body" with a shotgun he had helped to steal.

Anne Arundel County prosecutors will seek a sentence of life without parole for Anthony Deyonko Switzer, who was 16 on Aug. 20 when he shot and killed Doray Delonte Jones, 18, of Glen Burnie as Jones drove to his father's nearby home after dark.

The Glendening administration is expected today to throw its support behind a bill that would create a $35 million energy conservation program funded by a surcharge on business and residential customers' utility bills. The legislation, opposed by Maryland utilities, seeks to reactivate some of the energy-saving programs that were left stranded when the General Assembly passed a landmark electric industry deregulation bill two years ago. Frederick H. Hoover Jr., director of the Maryland Energy Administration, is to deliver Gov. Parris N. Glendening's endorsement at a press conference today with the bill's chief sponsors, Sen. Brian E. Frosh, a Montgomery County Democrat, and Del. Brian K. McHale, a Baltimore Democrat.
