kauffman@herald-mail.com FREDERICK, Md. - More than a few teams would have panicked Tuesday after falling behind 2-0 early in the Class 1A semifinals. Not Catoctin. Not with seniors Justus Yocum and Chad Wolfe. Not with Will Delawter - a junior who pitched in the 4A final for Thomas Johnson last season. And not after last year's run to the state title game. Determined to get back to the final again, Yocum had two doubles and two RBI, Delawter tripled, singled and drove in two and Wolfe settled down after early trouble to strike out eight as the Cougars earned a return trip to the championship game with a 5-2 victory over Elkton at McCurdy Field.

Post 211 cruises through By DAN KAUFFMAN / Staff Writer FREDERICK, Md. - In the end, Funkstown Post 211 got everything it wanted out of its opening game in the American Legion Maryland State Tournament. It got a big early lead thanks to a couple clutch hits and several Garrett miscues. It got to rest ace pitcher P.J. Hiser and give Ryan Wingerd and Josh Carter a couple low-stress innings of work. Most of all, it got an easy 10-2 victory over Garrett at McCurdy Field on Friday, the kind that allowed Funkstown to breathe easy before facing stiffer competition over the next couple of days.

Post 211 can't rally twice Funkstown falls in semifinals of state tourney By DAN KAUFFMAN / Staff Writer FREDERICK, Md. - At first glance, it seemed pretty ironic that a Funk - Severna Park's Jason Funk - hit the game-winning three-run double that doomed Funkstown on Saturday in the Maryland American Legion tournament winner's bracket semifinal. But while Funk's two-out drive to the right-filed gap with the bases loaded in the seventh inning sparked Severna Park to the 8-6 victory at McCurdy Field, it was the error and two walks preceding his at-bat that ruined what had been a thrilling Funkstown comeback.

The kids did a marvelous job. " The Warriors (16-6) had their chances against the Eagles (20-4) and played well overall, but they never got the key hit they needed after Snow Hill's five-run second inning for a 6-3 lead.
