THURMONT, Md. - A decided underdog, the Smithsburg football team didn't need any help falling to Catoctin. The Leopards managed that quite nicely by committing six turnovers. But that's not what had Smithsburg coach Buddy Orndorff so upset after the 33-6 thrashing his club endured in Monday's MVAL Antietam contest. "I thought the penalties were extremely timely," said Orndorff, "but it's like that over here every time we play. Then when (the Cougars) are up 33-0, things start evening out. " Of Smithsburg's five penalties, four went for 15 yards each.

koelble@herald-mail.com SEVERN, Md. - For Catoctin junior Ashley Lenhart, moving to the left has turned out all right. Lenhart, a natural right-handed hitter who switched to the left side of the plate last year, had three hits to spark a 13-hit attack as the Cougars blanked North Caroline 10-0 in the Maryland Class 1A softball semifinals Tuesday at Randazzo Park. Catoctin (20-2) advances to face Beall, a 12-7 winner over Perryville, in the state final, which is likely to be played Thursday at the University of Maryland.

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - Jefferson boys basketball coach Bob Starkey admitted before Saturday's game that he knew "nothing" about North Marion - which entered the contest coming off a 30-point rout of Elkins in its opener Tuesday. As it turned out, what Starkey didn't know couldn't hurt him. The Cougars wasted little time wasting the Huskies, rolling to a 22-6 lead after the first quarter en route to an easy 90-56 victory. Jefferson (2-0) scored in every way imaginable - with slashing drives to the basket, post-up moves, offensive rebounds, 3-pointers and transition layups - using almost every player on the roster.

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - What Jefferson did Friday night was the same thing it did in its seven losses this season: Turn the football over. So, it's obviously Hedgesville's fault that the Cougars won only their second game of the season, 27-14. The Eagles simply didn't take advantage of Jefferson's errors. "We had some turnovers, but we didn't have the turnovers at critical times," said Cougars coach Donnie Tucker. "We were able to overcome our turnovers tonight. " A prime example came in the fourth period when trailing by the eventual final score, Hedgesville (3-5)

WILLIAMSPORT - MVAL Antietam football teams know what is coming at them when Catoctin lines up in its tight double-wing offense. Stopping the Cougars when they start running that offense is quite another. Williamsport discovered that Saturday afternoon as the Cougars gained nearly 400 yards and scored on six straight possessions on their way to a 40-0 victory over the Wildcats in the conference opener for both teams. "We had a good week of scouting. We knew what they were going to do," Williamsport coach Adrian Custer said.

bobp@herald-mail.com SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - Tradition, history, disciplined play. Those are the principles the University High football program is built on. On Friday, Jefferson busted through like the hurricane du jour and blew the perennial powerhouse from Morgantown off its very foundation. The No. 6 Cougars continued their revitalization program, playing hard and fast while making two first-half touchdowns off big running plays stand up to notch a 14-7 victory, almost announcing to West Virginia's Class AAA scene that they have arrived.

WILLIAMSPORT - To say that Catoctin's girls basketball team had revenge on its mind would be a gross understatement. After losing to Williamsport on their home floor earlier in the season, the Cougars wanted badly to win Tuesday's rematch. And it showed, as Catoctin's tenacious pressure defense sparked a 60-30 drubbing of the Wildcats in a Monocacy Valley Athletic League contest. "(The loss at Catoctin) just really fired us up," said Catoctin's leading scorer, Emily Balogh, who finished with 20 points on 9 of 12 shooting.

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Jefferson continued its recent domination of Martinsburg on the baseball diamond Tuesday night. The footnote to this chapter of the rivalry, though, is the generosity the Bulldogs bestowed upon the Cougars. No. 1-ranked Jefferson had 14 hits, but Martinsburg's pitching helped the Cougars with 19 free trips to first base - with 12 walks and seven hit batsmen - leading to a 20-5 victory and the home-field advantage in next week's West Virginia sectional tournament.

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - That whole holiday giving thing almost got the Jefferson girls basketball team into trouble Tuesday night. Eventually, the Cougars figured out the its-better-to-give-than-to-receive axiom doesn't apply to basketball games, and claimed a 54-44 Apple Valley League game over Berkeley Springs. After enjoying a double-digit lead for nearly 12 minutes, Jefferson stood by as the Indians pulled to within three, 42-39, before coming back to life to secure the win. "The girls had the lead and thought everything was OK," said Cougars coach Cheryl Roberts.
