North Carroll softball coach Rich Harvey isn't one to make excuses, but he could have come up with a couple to justify yesterday's 15-3 loss to visiting Thomas Johnson if he wanted to.The No. 15 Panthers were without their senior co-captains -- shortstop Christina Crouse and second baseman Kathleen Tunney -- and looked lost without them."

River Hill's season didn't start off that well at 2-2, but it certainly ended well -- with a 10-game winning streak culminating in the state Class 3A football championship Saturday night. In winning their third state title, 41-13 over Thomas Johnson at M&T Bank Stadium, the No. 5 Hawks relied on the two things that had gotten them this far, their running game and a stingy defense -- plus more than a little help from the Patriots. Thomas Johnson turned the ball over nine times in the game and twice on their first three plays.

A Baltimore City firefighter received probation before judgment last week in a 2010 drunken-driving crash that left a woman and her son hospitalized. Christopher Kyle Johnson, 30, was placed on two years of supervised probation for a traffic violation, while five counts of second-degree assault charges were dropped. His attorney, Bruce Robinson, said Johnson had no previous arrests or offenses, and he did not have any points on his license. He participated in a 13-week outpatient alcohol treatment program, he said.

Milton Wright by two points in its opener, Centennial took a powerful Thomas Johnson squad to the wire yesterday before losing, 59-54.Centennial rallied in the second half after trailing by as many as 11 points in the first half.

This one might have been over the day Phil Williams moved to Frederick and enrolled at Thomas Johnson High three years ago.Williams, 6 feet 8, 265 pounds, was just too much of an intimidator for the much smaller Westminster Owls to overcome last night in a Central Maryland Conference basketball game at Thomas Johnson.The final score -- Thomas Johnson 87, Westminster 70 -- was no surprise.Williams, who has been given a full basketball scholarship to Penn State, not only took up a lot of space, but he also prompted the slender Owls' big man, 6-7 Russell DeMont, to foul out with less than two minutes gone in the third quarter.

With his team trailing by a goal in the final seconds in Friday night's Class 4A-3A state semifinals at Arundel, C. Milton Wright's Scott Showalter picked up a loose ball and fired a shot past Wootton goalie Bobby Riso as the final horn sounded. The referee, however, waved off the goal, saying the shot did not beat the clock, and the Patriots held on for an 11-10 victory. The scrappy play of C.Milton Wright helped pave the way for the strong playoff run, but the Mustangs fell just short of reaching the state finals for the first time in program history.

To Patterson linebacker Allister Jones, Friday night's regional playoff opener against Woodlawn was all about making defensive stops and building momentum. That strategy played to perfection early on. The visiting Clippers did not allow the Warriors a first down in the first quarter while revving up their own running game and taking advantage of Woodlawn's mistakes. The Clippers scored all of their points in the first 14 minutes of the game en route to a 37-0 victory in a Class 4A North regional semifinal.
