After watching sophomore quarterback John Robertson's scintillating offensive display in No. 15 Villanova's 45-35 upset of No. 3 Towson on Saturday night at Johnny Unitas Stadium, Tigers coach Rob Ambrose did not hide his admiration for Robertson's performance. “How good was John Robertson? Why don't you ask me how good-looking Charlize Theron is?” he quipped. “He's amazing. He's not good, he's amazing. … He extended plays, we couldn't tackle him, and when we boxed him in, he found a way out. If you want to be really good and have a chance to make a run at the playoffs, you've got to have a great signal caller, and he's not good, he's great.” Robertson was indeed at the top of his game against Towson.

Most football coaches would be troubled if their teams fell into deep, first-quarter holes in back-to-back games. Rob Ambrose is clearly not like most coaches. No. 3 Towson has scored 35-21 and 44-28 victories over Stony Brook and No. 19 New Hampshire in the past two weeks, but neither came easily. The Tigers (6-0 overall, 2-0 Colonial Athletic Association) had to overcome first-quarter deficits of 14-0 to the Seawolves (2-3, 1-2) and 20-3 to the Wildcats (1-3, 0-1). That might seem distressing, but Ambrose hardly sounded concerned after the team beat New Hampshire.

The offense got many of the headlines, and rightfully so, in helping No. 3 Towson rally from a 20-3 deficit and cruise to a 44-28 thumping of No. 19 New Hampshire on Saturday. But the defense had a significant hand in the team getting out to a 6-0 overall start and a 2-0 record in Colonial Athletic Association play. After allowing three touchdowns and 162 yards in the first quarter, the Tigers limited the Wildcats to one score and 283 yards for the rest of the game - an average of 94.3 yards per remaining quarter.

Sean McDonnell must be quite the film aficionado. How else do you explain the New Hampshire coach's seemingly perfect description of Towson junior running back Terrance West's mesmerizing performance in the No. 3 Tigers' 44-28 victory over the No. 19 Wildcats at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson Saturday? For the third time in three meetings against New Hampshire, West gashed his Colonial Athletic Association rivals for more than 200 rushing yards and multiple touchdowns. During his postgame press conference, McDonnell offered this assessment of West's production.

When the Towson football team captured a share of last year's Colonial Athletic Association title, the offense was helmed by dual-threat quarterback Grant Enders. This fall, the program - ranked No. 3 in the latest Football Championship Subdivision poll by The Sports Network - is off to a 5-0 start and a 1-0 record in the conference with an offense guided by Peter Athens, who is more of a traditional pocket passer. To Sean McDonnell, the difference between Enders in 2012 and Athens in 2013 is only stylistic.

As the New Hampshire football team prepares for its Colonial Athletic Association opener against No. 3 Towson on Saturday at Johnny Unitas Stadium, the Wildcats will probably take some time studying the 13th-ranked defense in the Football Championship Subdivision, junior defensive end Ryan Delaire's 6½ sacks, and the 11th-ranked scoring offense in the country. One of the biggest priorities for New Hampshire is Tigers junior running back Terrance West. The Baltimore native and Northwestern graduate has carried the ball 126 times for 648 yards, and his 12 touchdowns are the most in the FCS. “Terrance West has picked up right where he left off,” Wildcats coach Sean McDonnell said of the back who gained 1,051 yards and 14 touchdowns on 195 rushes last season.

When South River and Arundel play in girls soccer, skill, intensity and drama are expected. The past of couple seasons, overtime also has been featured more times than not. In the teams' first meeting this season at South River on Wednesday, all the criteria were once again met. And it was the host Seahawks who had the hero in the end. Senior forward Katherine Wray pounded home a rebound in front less than three minutes into overtime to...

Marcus Hicks and his Old Mill football teammates have been teasing senior defensive back Aqeel Mooring recently that he can't catch, but Mooring proved them wrong Friday afternoon. After No. 11 Arundel pulled within 17-14 of the No. 4 Patriots with 2:42 left in their Anne Arundel County league game, the Wildcats booted an onside kick. Mooring never broke stride as he scooped it off the turf and took it to the Wildcats' 29-yard line. Two plays later, Hicks ran 25 yards for a touchdown to all but seal the host Patriots' 24-14 victory over one of their toughest county rivals.

During one sequence in the second half of Friday afternoon's Arundel-Old Mill football game, the Patriots' training staff got quite the work out. Old Mill players kept hitting the turf when the whistle blew. Training staff responded by sprinting onto the field, but after running multiple repeats switched to something more like a jog. Over a span of several mintues, it looked like a cramping epidemic had broken out on a breezy, 70-degree afternoon in Millersville. Five Patriot defenders went down during a long Wildcats drive that concluded when Arundel scored its second touchdown of the game.
