In pre-game warm-ups, Corey Donohoe was the most lighthearted athlete on the lacrosse field, just as likely to poke fun at her teammates as stretch her legs. Donohoe even joked with one of the officials during stick checks, prompting a playful pat on the head from a referee who had watched the recent North Harford graduate throughout her lacrosse career. "I just wanted to stay calm. I didn't want to get too nervous for the game and be off my game," Donohoe said of her pre-game antics.

On a Maryland squad that can run as many as nine midfielders, Landon Carr doesn't garner much attention. But the junior short-stick defensive midfielder has been a sparkplug for the No. 10 Terps' transition game, recording four goals and two assists thus far. Carr has posted three goals and two assists in the team's past three contests. He has taken just six shots this season and is 11-of-15 in his last two years. Carr's contributions did not escape the attention of coach John Tillman, who said he and his staff reviewed Carr's numbers recently.

In order for No. 7 Mount St. Joseph to upset No. 3 Loyola in lacrosse yesterday, the Gaels had to do several things well: capitalize on their opportunities, control the tempo and play solid transition defense. They couldn't manage any of the above. After missing several early point-blank scoring opportunities, Mount St. Joseph couldn't prevent the visiting Loyola midfielders from pushing the ball up field, finding the open man and rolling to a 14-6 victory. "We showed in the first couple minutes that we could play with them," Gaels attackman Brian Gargan said.

During the 2011 season, he led the team with 95 ground balls and ranked second in caused turnovers with 23. The defensive standout has 232 ground balls and 31 points during his three-year college career.

There will come a time early this season when Brian Billick will face the biggest temptation of his Ravens coaching tenure. Should he ride new quarterback Elvis Grbac's arm until it falls off? Or does he rely on the running game, field position and defense, an old-fashioned philosophy that garnered the Ravens a Super Bowl title? Here's one suggestion: If Grbac gets hot, Billick could just let it fly. "That's not a bad idea," Billick said, laughing. If this season's offensive options put Billick in a good mood, it may be because it's such a welcome change.

Still, the MSA stars survived a late surge by the Metro team and held on for a 17-14 win.Although the MSA team controlled the action for most of the game, a late scoring spree by the Metro team briefly gave rise to thoughts of an upset.

There's a Facebook poll asking fans of the Maryland men's lacrosse team to pick their favorite goal by fifth-year senior long-stick midfielder Brian Farrell: a one-hander against Johns Hopkins in 2008 or a diving tally against Navy a week ago. Farrell, who was unaware of the poll, said he would vote for his goal against Navy because his score against the Blue Jays in 2008 was part of a 10-4 loss. "Everyone remembers that one-handed goal, but no one remembers that we got blown out in that game," Farrell said.

After the No. 8 Hoyas took an early three-goal lead, Maryland kicked in that transition game and scored five straight goals to take the lead for good en route to a 20-11 victory at Maryland's Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex. The Hoyas (2-3) won most of the early draws and scored three goals before the Terps (7-0)

Reservoir's girls soccer team will play in the Class 3A state final today for the first time in the school's eight-year history. At midfield will be Katlyn Axenfeld, a 16-year-old junior who is the team's Most Valuable Player. "We're really talented in a lot of spots," said Reservoir coach Josh Sullivan, whose team is 15-3-1 going into its 5 p.m. game against Tuscarora at UMBC. "But we'd be really searching for answers if we took Katlyn out of the lineup." Axenfeld is a team leader, with poise and confidence, and she is the player others look to "as a calming influence" when games start heating up, Sullivan said.

Once heralded as "The Jewish Jordan," Tamir Goodman never lived up to the hype. A national celebrity at 17 as a junior at the Talmudical Academy in Pikesville, Goodman faded out of the spotlight by the time he turned 20. Without his disappointments in basketball, Goodman said in an interview this week, he would not be as prepared for the end of his professional playing career in Israel and the beginning of a new one.

Boston, who had a game-high 35 points, including nine threes, scored 20 of his points in the final period, 18 of them on threes.

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah - They played angry, and they played hurt. They played for pride, and they played to shut up their legion of doubters. But most importantly, the members of Team Canada played last night like tomorrow was just a rumor, fighting and clawing their way to every puck, scrapping their way to an emotional, 2-1 victory over Finland in the Olympic quarterfinals. "As each game goes on, the intensity grows and the passion to win grows," said Canada forward Steve Yzerman, who scored the winning goal off an assist from Mario Lemieux.

St. Frances guard Shatyra Hawkes knew she was playing a good team last night. She also knew that if the Panthers turned up the defense, the second half belonged to them. They did, and it did. The second-ranked Panthers (3-0) used a combination of tough man-to-man defense and a supercharged transition game to upset St. John the Baptist (West Islip, N.Y.), 56-35, in the Breezy Bishop Classic last night at Western. St. John (5-1) entered the game ranked No. 1 on Long Island in Newsday, and No. 6 in the country in the USA Today poll.
