Every great ride has to come to an end sooner or later. The Boonsboro football team would have preferred later to Friday night. The Warriors struck first against highly touted Fort Hill on its home field, but Garrett Clay took the game over in the second quarter, rushing for 269 yards and three touchdowns to lift the top-seeded Sentinels to a 26-7 victory over Boonsboro in the Maryland Class 1A West final at Greenway Avenue Stadium. Fort Hill (12-0) will host a state semifinal game next weekend.

SMITHSBURG -- Smithsburg's undefeated volleyball team saved its best match of the season for its biggest test to date. In doing so, the Leopards turned the Maryland Class 1A West final against Fort Hill into their own showcase. What was expected to be a close contest was no contest. The Leopards outplayed the Sentinels in every phase of the match in front of hundreds of their fans in a packed gym, and won their first regional title since 2001 with a 25-12, 25-14, 25-19 sweep. "Everyone played up to their potential and played a great match," said Smithsburg junior Taylor Belella, who directed the demolition with 31 assists.

CUMBERLAND, Md. - Williamsport sophomore Cayla Broadwater was not the best player on Fort Hill's court during Wednesday night's Maryland Class 1A West volleyball semifinal. But she was the best player when it mattered most. After winning the first two games, the third-seeded and four-time defending Class 1A state champion Wildcats' usual aggressive style vanished in a sea of errors, while the second-seeded Sentinels elevated their own attack to win Game 3 and take the lead in Game 4. With the outcome suddenly in doubt, Broadwater lit a fuse from her middle-hitter position with four kills down the stretch, and Brittany Horn finished the match with the last of her nine kills as the Wildcats escaped with a 25-23, 25-18, 18-25, 25-23 victory.

In the eyes of Mawdo Sallah, the finish of Monday's boys basketball game might have been a fitting conclusion, considering the way it started for the 6-foot-7 senior. Saddled with three personal fouls just minutes into the second period, Sallah came back to play a flawless second half and scored the winning bucket with 1 second remaining to give Broadfording Christian a 60-58 victory over Fort Hill. Down 37-26 at halftime and looking like a team from nowhere, the Lions (17-5) rallied with 10 minutes of solid basketball from a 49-31 deficit with two minutes left in the third period.

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - On the fifth play from scrimmage, Jefferson's Ryland Newman bolted 55 yards for a touchdown and the No. 2 Cougars appeared to be at the top of their game offensively.

The unbeaten Sentinels (5-0, 3-0) responded with a 15-play, 74-yard drive capped on Scott Rice's 9-yard run. However, the Cougars still had a 7-6 lead following a missed extra point.

The North Hagerstown basketball team saved its best for last. The Hubs played their best game of the season, but it ended up being their last one, too. No matter how well North played, Fort Hill was just that much better as Jamie Kline poured in 39 points Monday to lead the Sentinels to a 78-72 victory in a Maryland Class 2A West quarterfinal game. "It's probably, even in a losing effort, the best ballgame we've played all year," North coach Tim McNamee said. "You have to give Fort Hill credit.
