One minute and 46 seconds were left in the game when Albany delivered another magic moment. Attackman Miles Thompson threw a quick pass to younger brother Lyle, who hurled a pass across the crease to cousin Ty Thompson, who flicked in a goal. And then there was one final trick: Unseeded Albany made No. 3 seed Loyola Maryland disappear from the NCAA Division I lacrosse tournament. The Thompson trio accounted for 11 goals and seven assists, and getting 13 saves from goalie Blaze Riorden, the Great Danes upset Loyola, 13-6, in the first round of tournament play Saturday at Ridley Athletic Complex.

Charlie Blake won a $10,000 prize yesterday for rolling a perfect 300 game in tournament play -- in a Baltimore County courtroom, not at the bowling alley.The pins flew for him on May 7, 1989, in a perfect game that helped him to a third-place finish in the tournament worth $200. The Amateur Bowlers Tour competition was in Dundalk.But Charles Hansen Blake, 59, of the 400 block of Anglesea Street in Baltimore, believed that his perfect game during championship play was also to be rewarded by a special $10,000 prize, according to papers filed in a breach-of-contract lawsuit against the Baltimore division of the Amateur Bowlers Tour and two former franchise holders.

With an 8-6 record and one final regular-season contest at No. 11 Maryland, Colgate has not been mathematically eliminated from consideration for an at-large berth in the NCAA tournament. But unlike last year when the team went 13-3 in the regular season and garnered only the program's second tournament appearance, coach Mike Murphy is not holding out for another at-large spot when the 16-team bracket is unveiled Sunday night. “I'm sure there's probably some sort of mathematical substance to that, but we're 29th in the RPI, and I don't know that a team outside of the top 17 or 18 in the RPI has ever made it to the NCAA tournament that wasn't an automatic qualifier,” he said Tuesday.

A favorable decision on a controversial golfing boundary, just over the Carroll County line, could spring professional Jimmy Hayes back into area competition.After Hayes accepted the head pro position at the new Quail Valley course in Littlestown, Pa., it was feared he had eliminated himself from tournament play in the PGA's Middle Atlantic Section. The MAPGA defines its northern area membership as stopping at Carroll County.Among other things, the territorial change would force a travel hardship for Hayes, 38. Under the prevailing circumstances he will have to belong to the Philadelphia PGA Section to continue tournament play.

The recent snow may have curtailed outdoor practices and scrimmages, but it did nothing to change the opinion among county coaches that the Howard Lions are the team to beat this season.While some squads are going through a youth movement -- Centennial and Wilde Lake each have eight sophomores, and River Hill has three sophomores and three freshmen -- the Lions return eight starters from last season's third-place county finisher.Howard's strength starts with its battery. Pitcher Kelly O'Neill and catcher Stacey Swiney, first-team All-County selections for two and three years, respectively, are among the Baltimore area's best.

Pat Skerry has spent the past 30 minutes pacing the perimeter of the court, tossing out gentle pointers in his New England-inflected patter. One of his Towson Tigers fires an ill-conceived pass that ends up rattling among the seats at SECU Arena. The third-year coach abruptly morphs into a different animal. "Instead of acting like little kids, let's execute 'Hook' correctly," he bellows, referring to one of his team's plays. "Guard!" he barks after a subsequent defensive lapse.

At Stevenson, playing defensive midfield is almost as much about athleticism as it is about defensive commitment. A unit composed of long-stick midfielders Chad Williams, Ryan Rubenstein and Warren Pumphrey and short-stick midfielders Connor Curro, Dylan Muti, Marcellus Preston and Peter Green must keep an opponent's midfielders at bay and turn defense into instant offense. “You've got to get your best athletes out there, and that's what we have,” said Williams, a freshman. “We have a bunch of athletes that are willing to put 110 percent as a team and play good team defense.” Added Curro: “We stress on it a lot, getting up and down the field and clearing and transition.

- The Atlantic Coast Conference tournament has a familiar feel for the second-seeded Maryland Terrapins. After all, they have played each of the participants this season and could find themselves playing at least one team for a third time. At the same time, the tournament is very different - the schedule is more compressed - than the regular season. Preparing for it requires a new set of procedures. About the only thing like it for No. 19 Maryland this season was the Maui Invitational, in which the Terps played three games in three days in November, losing two. The team could have a similar schedule at Greensboro Coliseum if it wins tonight and Saturday to advance to Sunday's final.

Patterson Mill football coach Josh Mason and his players knew their first season of varsity play was going to be tough. That's why they are looking at the big picture and not getting too frustrated after a 0-2 start. "They know we're building a program and not many kids get to do this," Mason said. "They see the long-term picture here. Our goal is really to make a run in 2009. We have a very talented junior class." The Huskies started their season with losses to Northwestern (26-6) and Elkton Christian (28-13)
