Going into Friday night's final regular-season game, Westminster's football team figured to hold only a slim hope of making the regional playoffs. Now, the Owls may have no chance at all. Westminster may have to forfeit last week's 57-7 win over Manchester Valley for using an ineligible player - a junior varsity player Owls coach Brad Wilson said was approved to play by the Carroll County supervisor of athletics. Wilson said he used a quarterback who had also played in that week's JV game for three snaps in the second half of the Manchester Valley game, which is a violation of the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletics Association rule prohibiting football players from participating in more than one game in a single week.

Nicole Spencer played one of her best games last night, leading eighth-ranked South Carroll to a 62-42 victory over 13th-ranked Westminster at South Carroll.She scored 33 points and had 15 rebounds and four steals.Spencer did it against a strong Westminster team (10-2) that features two 5-foot-11 3/4 players inside, Beth Lister and Jill Ibex, and another 5-9 player, Cassandra Conklin.Lister and Ibex were plagued by foul problems most of the second half, but Lister refused to use that as an alibi for their failure to stop Spencer and the Cavaliers (12-1)

The last high school baseball team that Westminster's Bryan Harman coaches might be his best. The fourth-ranked Owls surged through the regular season undefeated, earning the top seed in Class 4A North. Harman, who spent 12 years at Liberty and 10 at Westminster, wants to spend more time watching his sons play college baseball next season. His oldest son, Brett, is a senior at Maryland and was the Terrapins' top pitcher before undergoing Tommy John elbow ligament-replacement surgery before the season.

The stage is set for the latest edition of what's fast becoming one of the area's top boys lacrosse rivalries. Dulaney's Jeff Santo picked up a loose ball in front of the net and scored with 3:47 left, lifting the No. 10 Lions to a 10-9 win over Westminster in a Class 4A-3A state semifinal at Annapolis High yesterday, and setting up a clash with No. 8 Severna Park in the final. It will mark the fifth time the teams have met in the final since 2000. Dulaney has won all four previous matchups - including two that went to double-overtime - by a combined five goals.

Senior shooting guard Dan Radford is expected to be one of the leading scorers for a Westminster team that enters the season with high expectations. Radford, 6 feet 1, is comfortable ranging outside to shoot three-pointers but scores mostly from inside the lane. He averaged 10 points a game last season. How does it feel to have high expectations put on you entering this season? It feels pretty good. I'm pretty much just working with my teammates and getting better. What do you like most about this team after it finished with a .500 record last year?

The Dulaney field hockey team never had much of a chance yesterday in its opening game of the season.The Lions ran into an angry Westminster team that dominated play all day for an impressive 3-1 victory at Dulaney.The 10th-ranked Owls, still stinging from a surprising 2-1 loss to Centennial last Friday, had a major edge in every offensive category and could have scored at least eight goals with a little more luck.Westminster outshot the 14th-ranked Lions, 12-3, had an 11-2 bulge in penalty corners, controlled the ball 52 of the 60 minutes in the game and just missed by inches of scoring at least five more goals in the second half after bolting to a 3-1 advantage at halftime.

When two good teams -- evenly matched and big rivals -- get together to play some ball, the game usually comes down to which one wants it more.That was the case last night in Winfield with the No. 14 Westminster Owls visiting No. 12 South Carroll.The evidence was spread out throughout the night, but most apparent on a single possession underneath the South Carroll basket midway through the fourth quarter.Cavaliers senior point guard Lindsey Vosloh grabbed a teammate's missed free throw, put up a shot and missed, kept it alive twice more before senior center Ce Wagener tapped it in.It was the Cavaliers who got to all the loose balls, grabbed all the big rebounds and played the aggressive defense to come away with a solid 45-35 win against a Westminster team that looked puzzled most of the night.

A late-season slide against the two toughest teams on the schedule could have spoiled the enthusiasm and confidence of a young and talented Westminster field hockey team that had ideas of a Class 3A state championship after starting with eight shutouts and eight wins. However, the Owls (10-2-1) are still standing after taking back-to-back losses from Century and North Carroll and ending the regular season with a 1-1 tie against South Carroll. Westminster beat Tuscarora, 3-0, in a Class 3A West quarterfinal on Thursday.

Following a tumultuous season a year ago, the Westminster girls basketball team finally appears to be putting all the pieces together. Visiting Linganore found out firsthand last night, when the host No. 8 Owls got 15 points from Jennifer Walkling and 13 from fellow frontcourt standout Emily Bollinger in a 60-54 win over the Monocacy Valley Athletic League, Chesapeake Conference power. For a team that's gone through some rough times in the past - including the suspension of nine players last season following an off-the-court infraction - Owls players say they've never been closer, on or off the court.

Katie Stephan expects to be sprinting when the Baltimore Ravens open their training camp today in Westminster. No, Stephan is not on the team, nor is she a cheerleader. She works as a waitress at Baugher's Restaurant, a popular establishment across the street from the hotel where the players will stay. Baugher's has prepared for this week, ordering more eggs, potatoes and ham than usual to feed breakfast to the up to 70,000 fans expected to descend on the town. "It's mad," said John Jordan, a Baugher's manager.

Player of the Year Emily Chamelin, Westminster: Chamelin's rise from a good player to the best was nothing short of meteoric. Overlooked as a critical cog in an Owls squad that advanced to the state semifinals last season, Chamelin continued to anchor a Westminster team that made it to the final four again and earned the area's No. 6 ranking. The junior allowed just 14 goals, registered 74 saves, and posted nine shutouts. An aggressive keeper not content to wait for the ball to come to her, Chamelin allowed only one goal in Central Maryland Conference play.

Scott Carnegie was not satisfied that the Westminster football team finished 6-4 last year -- the school's first winning season since 1990.And he's not content with the squad's current 4-1 record and the probable prospect of gaining its first playoff berth since 1981.No, Carnegie has bigger goals in mind."I'm talking states. I'm talking Byrd Stadium [the site of the state football playoffs]," the senior quarterback said. "I know we can do it."And who can blame Carnegie for his youthful optimism?
