kauffman@herald-mail.com SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - Jefferson senior Mike Myers may not be the international man of mystery - like the actor with the same name - but his pitches sure had Thomas Johnson's players shaking their heads Thursday. Myers blended his fastball and slider into his second victory of the season, allowing two runs on four hits in six-plus innings while striking out nine to lead the Cougars to a 6-2 triumph over the Patriots. "I thought he was throwing well.

Please excuse the Northwest-Shoals (Ala.) Community College women's basketball team if it seems to have an identity problem when it comes to what sport its playing. You see, this particular basketball season has really been more about clearing hurdles than scoring points. And you can bet the Patriots are enjoying every leap. Northwest-Shoals cut loose with a frenzy in the second half to run Kankakee (Ill.) Community College off the floor in a convincing 86-62 win Wednesday in the opening round of the NJCAA Women's Division II Championships at Hagerstown Community College's athletic complex.

With almost half the season of football over, things begin to heat up. Teams begin to play harder to get into the playoffs. For others, it's just for pride. There are only nine weeks before the post-season and the unbeaten and winless are still out there. The best game this week was Jacksonville at Tampa Bay. The Jaguars came in 4-2 while the Buccaneers came in 4-3. Tampa Bay quarterback Jeff Garcia had not thrown an interception this season until halfway through the second quarter.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- His team's home debut probably didn't go as well as Washington football coach Mark Hash had hoped, but it probably went about like he'd expected. The Patriots were outclassed in their first-ever home game, losing 55-8 Friday night to a Martinsburg team seeking redemption after two early-season losses. The Bulldogs lost last week to Urbana, 29-28. "They're one of the top three or four programs in the state of West Virginia," Hash said. "They had something to prove tonight, and they proved it. " Martinsburg (2-2)

EMMITSBURG, Md. - Eight feet can hardly be considered long distance. But over the course of a 32-minute high school basketball game, an additional eight feet on the length of the court can feel like miles to the players involved. That's what led Thomas Johnson coach Tom Dickman to Knott Arena on the Mount St. Mary's campus Wednesday for the Patriots' final practice before today's Class 3A state semifinal game against Aberdeen. [cont. from sports page ] Why practice at Knott Arena and not in their own gym at the high school?

MIDDLETOWN, Md. - The silver anniversary season of Middletown High School football began on a sour note Friday night. The rest of the evening, however, was simply sterling for the Knights. No. 3 Thomas Johnson scored on the first play from scrimmage, but Middletown gave the Patriots little room to run afterward as the No. 1 Knights went on to a 33-14 win in the season opener for both teams. Patrick Truxillo went 68 yards on a reverse on TJ's first play to stake the Patriots to a quick 7-0 lead.

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. - No matter the outcome of Friday's game, it was sure to be a night of firsts for the Washington High School football team. The squad representing the new Jefferson County school would be playing its first game, gaining its first yards and, hopefully, scoring its first points. The first that mattered most to the Patriots, however, was the first win. Washington got that out of the way, too, getting several big defensive stops and solid running from Dylan Nick to beat Hedgesville 14-6 at Mumaw Field.

Smithsburg's boys lacrosse team will be happy to see someone other than Thomas Johnson's Nick Sponyoe between the pipes the rest of this season. The Leopards outshot the Patriots 52-20 and, thanks to Travis Leopold, won 16 of 20 faceoffs. But Sponyoe made 23 saves and Thomas Johnson left Coach Carroll Reid Field with a stunning 8-7 victory. “He had a good night, and our shooting was to his liking,” Smithsburg coach Joe Dietrich said. “We were going low, and he was very good getting down quick.
