The South River boys lacrosse team showed an uncanny ability to turn it on when it counted most Friday at Arundel. Down two goals to the host Wildcats early in the third quarter, the No. 15 Seahawks put on the clamps defensively and scored the game's last eight goals to come away with an impressive 13-7 win in Anne Arundel County play. Senior Nick Pappas led the way offensively with four goals and an assist, freshman Ben Chisolm scored two pivotal goals to start the take-charge fourth quarter and coach Paul Noone couldn't stop praising the collective effort on defense that shut down the Wildcats for all but the first 24 seconds of the second half.

Maryland's high-powered offense took a little while to heat up in Friday night's NCAA Division I women's lacrosse semifinal, but once it did, the No. 1 Terps kept rolling into the title game. No. 5 Northwestern managed to slow the Terps offense in the first half, but Maryland used a 7-1 run through the middle of the game to power a 9-6 victory before an announced 8,256 at Towson's Johnny Unitas Stadium. Brooke Griffin  (South River) had two goals and two assists and Kelly McPartland had three goals and an assist, but the Maryland defense stifled the Wildcats in stretches, holding them without a shot for more than 10 minutes through the middle of the first half.

Morgan State watched Bethune-Cookman start to unravel early in the second quarter of Saturday's Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference matchup even though the Wildcats had a three-point lead at the time. After defensive back Dion Hanks was ejected for striking a Morgan State player, Wildcats coach Brian Jenkins was also kicked out of the game seconds later for berating the officials. The NCAA does not officially track ejections, but at least three NCAA representatives said Jenkins could be the first head football coach ever ejected from a game.

PASADENA, Calif. -- So, they didn't win. Lost it late in the fourth quarter.Big deal.The Northwestern Wildcats didn't need to beat Southern Cal yesterday in the Rose Bowl.Wildcats players, coaches and alumni will howl in disagreement, of course. They wanted to win. That would have been a lot more fun than watching USC receiver Keyshawn Johnson run so wild that he set a Rose Bowl record for receiving yards in the first 39 minutes of USC's 41-32 victory.But hey, you can't have everything. Especially when you're Northwestern.

LOS ANGELES -- Arizona doesn't have Duke's pedigree, but it does have the nation's best backcourt.The Wildcats won't give you Forty Minutes of Hell, but their defense has burned opponents.Coach Lute Olson doesn't have a underdog like the East is going to send to the Final Four, but after first-round losses the past two years, postseason expectations for his team weren't exactly high, either.Forget the nicknames and reputations. Yesterday Arizona completed a blitz of the West Regional with a 92-72 rout of top-seeded Missouri before 15,517 at the Los Angeles Sports Arena, and now the most dominant team of this NCAA tournament will try to prove that it's also the best.

A goal by Villanova freshman midfielder Devin McNamara (Boys' Latin) and a one-minute penalty on Johns Hopkins junior long-stick midfielder Michael Pellegrino 77 seconds into the third quarter not only helped the Wildcats close the gap to 7-6, but also appeared to give them a prime opportunity to tie the score. But sophomore Craig Madarasz - filling in for an ineffective Drew Kennedy - won the ensuing faceoff (one in his 7-of-9 night) and the No. 5 Blue Jays eventually pulled away with a 13-7 victory at Homewood Field in Baltimore on Wednesday night.

Johns Hopkins has won all six meetings in its series with Villanova, which is resuming for the first time since 2002. The Blue Jays have outscored their opponents, 82-61, while going 5-2 at home, while Villanova has outscored its opponents, 69-67, in its 3-4 record on the road. The Wildcats (5-7) have won four of their last six games, but an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament seems unlikely. They do have the Big East tournament AQ as a means to NCAAs. Senior long-stick midfielder John LoCascio has recorded four goals and 12 assists this season and is ranked fifth in Division I in caused turnovers per game (2.3)

Arundel outfielder Syeed Mahdi was very frustrated with his last at bat for in the bottom of the sixth for Arundel. As it turned out, his pop-up was just the trick. Mahdi's seeing-eye single found a hole between three Chesapeake (10-1, 9-1) players, allowing two runs to score, and giving the No. 4 Wildcats a 5-4 victory over the No. 5 Cougars in a key Anne Arundel County League game. Mahdi led Arundel (10-0, 9-0) with a triple and two singles. Michael Hinely pitched the final two innings to get the win. "It landed, and that's all that matters," said Mahdi, a senior.

State regulators gave the final go-ahead Tuesday to Old Dominion Electric Cooperative to start building a new $675 million power plant in Cecil County. The new Wildcat Point Generation Facility, fueled by natural gas, will help Old Dominion meet the region's growing demand for electricity, CEO Jackson Reasor said. The plant, located next to the cooperative's existing property in Conowingo, is expected to generate 1,000 megawatts of electricity each year, power for roughly 390,000 homes.

It was all too familiar Friday night: Arundel senior midfielder Aaron Snyder with the ball in his stick and the Wildcats playing their biggest rival, South River, in overtime. Snyder scooped up a ground ball in the middle and put a shot past Seahawks goalie Charlie Palandati with 3.6 seconds left in the four-minute extra period to give No. 11 Arundel another thrilling, 7-6 win over the No. 14 Seahawks. The last time the teams met, in last year's Anne Arundel County championship game, Snyder was the overtime hero and the final score was also 7-6. "It feels amazing," Snyder said with a big grin.

Apparently Lee Rogers and his No. 10-ranked Arundel Wildcats (7-2) don't intend to follow the script and, because they're so young, simply be the third-best county public school team.In fact, Rogers and his Wildcats have made it their goal to get to UMBC for the state playoffs this year, possibly a year early.No. 4 Annapolis (7-2) and No. 8 Meade (7-3) are the more experienced teams with more seniors than Arundel, which has only two, and the Panthers and Wildcats were last year's top two. Meade upset Annapolis to win the county championship, but the latter copped the Class 4A East region to earn the right to go to the final four at UMBC.

Sturgis had five goals and one assist, while Sanders had two goals and an assist. The Nittany Lions never trailed. Notre Dame's surge began when Fighting Irish goalie Conor Kelly made a save and found Tyler Brenneman, who streaked down the field and fed Matt Kavanagh for his second of three goals in the game.
