Never discount the power of luck. If anything could have gone wrong for Westlake in the closing seconds of Friday night's Class 3A girls basketball state semifinal game, it did. And No. 13 River Hill was the beneficiary, capitalizing with a 59-54 victory. "That was a really, really good team," River Hill coach Teresa Waters said. "We knew they were good, and luck was on our side. " Westlake's game began to crumble in the last 21 seconds, when Alyssa Fort hit a 3-pointer to pull the Wolverines within a point.

Milford Mill guard Dionna White put on a show in Thursday's Class 3A state semifinal. White helped the No. 4 Millers take command early and picked them up when they faded late, finishing with a game-high 32 points in a 75-53 victory over Westlake at Towson University's SECU Arena. Milford Mill has won 13 straight and will make its first trip to the finals in eight years when they play Damascus Saturday at 8 p.m. The Millers are hoping to improve their championship game luck - they won a title in 2005, but lost their other seven appearances in the finals.

COLLEGE PARK -- Westlake's defense proved one of the state's stingiest this season, allowing only 55 points and shutting out four opponents during the regular season.But Chad Bradley and Damascus proved a little too much for the Wolverines, from Waldorf in Charles County. Bradley ran for 296 yards on 41 carries and scored four touchdowns as the northern Montgomery County team rolled to a 41-12 victory over Westlake in the Class 3A state championship last night at Byrd Stadium.Bradley's four touchdowns gave him 42 in one season and set a state record.

COLLEGE PARK - Milford Mill coach Mike Silverman said earlier this week that his team was going to play with a "calm urgency" heading into the Class 3A semifinal Thursday at the University of Maryland's Comcast Center. The No. 4 Millers, however, ran into a Westlake team that was primed to play with a reckless abandon. Appearing in just its second state tournament, Westlake, of Waldorf, swarmed to the ball and made enough key baskets down the stretch to pull out a 71-68 victory and knock off the defending champions.

Looking for proof that Hammond has a young, inexperienced team this season?Search no farther than yesterday's opening 2-1 overtime victory over Westlake of Charles County.Neither junior midfielder Jason Decker, who scored the winning goal in the first minute of overtime, nor sophomore striker Rory Peters, who scored the first goal in the third minute of regulation, had scored before during their high-school careers, including JV competition.Despite the Bears' inexperience, the victory against a competitive Westlake team that was equally young and matched up well with Hammond in skills and speed, had to be encouraging for Hammond coach Rich Corkran.

Eric Brown was tough when he had to be and No. 4-ranked Northeast used some old-fashioned, inside baseball to spark its offense in posting the Pasadena school's fourth state baseball title, 6-2, over Westlake of Charles County yesterday at Joe Cannon Stadium in Harmans. It was a Maryland record 20th state title for Anne Arundel County. The Class 3A championship was the first for the Eagles fourth-year coach Marshal Kawecki, and the school's first since 1992 under the late Harry Lentz, who won three.

Many years ago, Doug DuVall handed a football trophy to a kid. Last night, that kid took away what could have been DuVall's last trophy. In DuVall's final game as Wilde Lake coach after 36 years, his Wildecats fell to Westlake, 13-0, in the Class 3A state championship game at M&T Bank Stadium. The title was the first for Westlake and coach Dominic Zaccarelli, who recalled that first meeting with DuVall. "I was 8 or 9 years old and went to Thunder Hill Elementary School in Columbia," said Zaccarelli, who has coached Westlake for 17 years.

LANDOVER -- Fallston coach Dave Fender stood in the corner of the track at the Prince George's Sports & Learning Complex with about two hours left in the Class 3A-2A state championship meet and furiously scribbled numbers and drew up possibilities that even he couldn't believe. Fender and distance coach Jimmy Grant looked at numerous scenarios and kept shaking their heads and grinning in disbelief. But the disbelief turned into reality a little later when No. 4 Fallston finished the improbable upset by edging No. 5 Mervo for the girls state crown yesterday.

At the conclusion of the Class 3A state track and field championships at Morgan State University, well-wishers approached Western coach Jerry Molyneaux and tried to console him on his team's second-place outing by noting the youth of his squad. Molyneaux didn't buy it. "I don't even want to look at that," Molyneaux said after his No. 1 Doves fell to Westlake by 16 points. "I look at them as athletes, not as freshmen and sophomores. We can't say that's the reason why we did not do well."
