Wednesday night ended Hagerstown Community College women's basektball coach Marlys Palmer's stay in front of the home bench at HCC athletic complex. That was tough enough. But unfortunately, it also signaled the end of the Hawks' 16-game win streak. The evening of celebration and good memories from Palmer's 33 years of leading the Hawks ended with one black mark as Prince George's scratched out a 63-56 Maryland JuCo Conference victory, handing HCC its first loss since Nov. 28, 2011.

PHILADELPHIA A few days off were enough motivation for Maryland. Mario Merrills ran for three touchdowns, leading the Terrapins to a 38-7 victory over winless Temple on Saturday. Sam Hollenbach passed for 228 yards and ran for a score as Maryland (4-2) overcame a sluggish start and handed Temple (0-6) its fifth loss of more than 25 points. Umar Ferguson scored Temple's only TD. The Terrapins' next game against Virginia Tech isn't until Oct. 20, so coach Ralph Friedgen made sure that his players had plenty of incentive to bounce back after a lackluster first half.

PHILADELPHIA - Mardy Collins saw a charge coming he wasn't willing to take. With a frenzied Temple student section storming the court in celebration Saturday after a 91-85 victory over No. 18 Maryland, Collins deftly avoided the rush and scooted near press row. Let the students party, he had to stay healthy. "I was kind of nervous," he said. "I didn't want anyone to step on my ankle. But if they stepped on my foot from celebrating, I guess that's fine. " Collins scored 25 points and had 12 assists and Dustin Salisbery had 23 points for Temple, which went on a 17-2 run late in the game.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - The wind was light, the sky dark - prime conditions for catching little owls. The Lamb's Knoll banding station, along the Appalachian Trail, was ideal for tracking the Northern Saw-whet, an owl as tall and wide as a human hand, and much cuddlier. The station, in South Mountain State Park, sits 1,758 feet above sea level, the right elevation for attracting owls as they fly south from Canada, Project Owlnet found David F. Brinker said. Above all, Brinker said, the birds are drawn to a mating call of the wild: an MP3 recording of a 100-plus-decibel staccato whine that sounds like it needs a spritz of WD-40.

The surprise Cokey Robertson received Tuesday night was one he neither wanted nor expected. "They just completely intimidated our kids," said the St. Maria Goretti boys basketball coach after watching Towson Catholic's resounding 97-58 win in a Baltimore Catholic League game. "I thought we would do a better job. " The short-handed Gaels (9-12, 2-6) watched Towson reel off 15 unanswered points to open the contest and roll to the easy win. "We don't have the luxury of a lot of depth," said Robertson.

If the Hagerstown Community College men's basketball team could learn how to play the percentages, things might be going much better. That is, if the Hawks could learn how to play the last 20 percent of the game 100 percent of the time, they would probably win 90 percent of their games. HCC waited to the final minutes to mount a massive comeback only to come up short on Thursday in an 87-81 Maryland JuCo conference loss to Prince George's at the HCC athletic complex.

A great horned owl was released into the wild on Sept. 19 after being rehabilitated by Blue Ridge Wildlife Center for five months after being found in mid-April under a tree near the Saint James School campus. The owl, named Clark after Dick Clark, who died on the same day in April, was taken to the wildlife center in Millwood, Va., where it was provided with veterinary and rehabilitation care. Dr. Belinda Burwell brought Clark and a companion owl, which was rescued in Richmond, Va., to the campus in mid-September.

Chisholm scored 12 points in the final 12 minutes - including three on a key six-point possession with 2:04 remaining - to help the Hawks survive in a 106-103 win over the Owls in a Maryland JuCo Conference game at the HCC athletic complex.

Officers of the Hagerstown Owl's Club at 25 W. Antietam St. appeared before the Washington County liquor board Wednesday to answer allegations that two women were assaulted at the club during an incident in August. The hearing was scheduled after former Owl's Club member Linda Stevens complained to the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County earlier this month that she and a friend were pushed and threatened when they visited the club for drinks. "They started pushing us," Stevens told the liquor board during her portion of the testimony.
