Things didn't go as well as Liberty quarterback Austin Bode would have liked Saturday night when his Lions fell behind Westminster 35-0 and ended up losing 35-14. Bode completed 13 of 19 passes for 135 yards, but he didn't score a touchdown, while Owls quarterback Duke Etchison was 17-for-21 for 292 yards and three touchdowns. Bode, however, came back to get the best of his second showdown with Etchison on Sunday afternoon in the Ravens' High School Quarterback Challenge at halftime of the Ravens-Packers game at M&T Bank Stadium.

No. 6 Maryland's 9-6 victory over No. 7 Virginia on Sunday not only helped the Terps rebound from their first loss of the season to North Carolina, but it appears to have also have sealed them a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. The win helped Maryland improve to 8-1 overall and 3-1 in the league, which is the best mark in the ACC. Even if the Terps were to fall at No. 9 Notre Dame on April 19, they would finish with a 3-2 record in the conference. The Cavaliers (8-3, 1-2)

Having gone three consecutive years without an appearance in the Patriot League tournament, Navy is close to ending that streak. A pair of wins against Lafayette (11-3 on March 7) and Boston University (13-7 on Saturday) means that the Midshipmen (4-5 overall and 3-3 in the conference) own head-to-head tiebreakers over the Leopards (1-7, 1-4) and Terriers (1-8, 1-4). Those tiebreakers could be significant for Navy, which currently sits in sixth place in the league. The top six teams qualify for the Patriot League tournament, which runs from April 22 to 27. “We're certainly in the driver's seat, if you will,” coach Rick Sowell said Tuesday morning.

From the beginning of the volleyball season, last night's showdown between No. 7 Towson and No. 12 Dulaney appeared destined to determine who would win Baltimore County's Class 4A-3A Division and advance to the county title match. After all, Towson won the last three county crowns, and the Lions had won the four before that. A playoff atmosphere surrounded last night's regular-season finale as visiting Towson pulled off a 25-22, 25-15, 25-16 sweep. Still, that wasn't enough to boost the Generals into next week's county final.

LANDOVER - Washington Redskins fullback Larry Centers, suffering from a sprained knee, joked about playing on crutches if he has to. Receiver Albert Connell said he plans to play the whole game despite a bum knee. Running back Stephen Davis will strap a brace on one of his forearms, which is healing from a hairline fracture, and follow Connell's lead. All this because the Redskins (7-5) have, as Centers put it, used up all their sick days and now find themselves in a virtual must-win game with the New York Giants (8-4)

McDonogh's Alex Sidney lay on his stomach near the net, writhing in pain from cramps that attacked both of his legs and rendered them useless. He was playing a tiebreaker in the final set of a championship match and didn't want it to end like this. Michael Katz of Gilman stood quietly at the net and could barely look at Sidney. The two are close friends who play tennis together frequently, and Katz didn't want the match to end like this either. But Sidney couldn't get up and had to retire, giving Katz the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference No. 1 singles title, 7-5, 4-6, 6-6 (ret.

The top-ranked Chesapeake softball team (17-3) will play in tomorrow's county championship game after finishing in first place with a 14-2 mark. Who the Cougars will play is still up in the air. It could be No. 4 Severna Park (17-3, 13-3 in the county) or No. 6 North County (14-4, 13-3) and it depends on whether No. 2 Northeast (14-4), 12-3) will get its make-up game in at Southern today. If the game is played and the Eagles win, a three-way tie will take place and Severna Park will advance on a second tiebreaker of more overall wins.

With the Orioles nearing the end of the season in the hunt for the American League East title and one of two wild-card positions, here's a primer on what happens in the case of a tie. In the simplest terms, if two teams tie for a division title or the final wild-card spot, a one-game tiebreaker will be played. At this point, if the Orioles and Yankees were to tie for the division, the O's would host the tiebreaker game by the virtue of their better record in division games.

The Blast made more than a statement Sunday night; it gave a speech to the rest of the Major Indoor Soccer League. With perhaps its most impressive team effort of the season, the Blast dominated the second-place Milwaukee Wave, 20-9, at 1st Mariner Arena , clinched a berth in the playoffs and took a giant step toward finishing first and gaining a first-round bye and the home floor for the championship game. It was the seventh consecutive victory for Baltimore (13-3), which has not lost since Jan. 16, and ensured the team would hold the tiebreaker for first place should it come to that at the end of the season.

EASTON, Pa. -- Lafayette pounded Navy so badly in the Patriot League tournament final yesterday that the Midshipmen can't blame the loss on the home-court controversy that shadowed the tournament and worked against them. "They beat us in every possible way," Navy coach Don DeVoe said after the 87-61 loss at Lafayette's Allan P. Kirby Center. "They pounded us into oblivion." Still, the Mids will spend the summer wondering what might have happened if they had played the game on their home floor, where they put a 28-point beating on Lafayette last month.

After her opponent, top-seeded Rika Fujiwara, hit a forehand volley wide, Manisha Malhotra walked to her chair on the sideline up 5-2 in the third set of the finals of the USTA Women's Satellite Tournament of Baltimore yesterday at Druid Hill Park. The situation was eerily familiar. Malhorta, the No. 2 seed, led 5-2 in the second set only to blow three match points, drop the next four games and lose in a tiebreaker. "I was like, `OK, you just need to go for it, and if you don't get it this time, you have another service game,' " said Malhorta, a native of India who played collegiately at Tennessee.

Kuegler pinned Gochar, helping Bel Air hold on for a 32-23 win despite a late charge from the Gladiators.
