The Martinsburg football team is like a time bomb. And about all the Washington Patriots could do was stick their fingers in their ears and hope for the best. Hope wasn't enough. Six, five, four, three, two, one …. Boom. It was over as quickly as it started. The Bulldogs used their superior talent and exceptional quickness to burn the fuse and ignite a 60-0 victory on Friday's Homecoming at Cobourn Field. It made West Virginia's defending Class AAA champions 6-0, including five wins by shutout.

The Williamsport volleyball team is 10-0 for the first time since 2004, although they just about gave coach Emily Crabtree a heart attack getting there Thursday night. The Wildcats raced to big leads in the first two games on the way to a 2-0 lead over Thomas Johnson, then had to withstand the Patriots' comeback attempt, only pulling out a 25-21, 26-24, 20-25, 24-26, 15-11 victory when junior Stacey Christy took charge at the end of Game 5. Christy - who finished with 24 kills and eight blocks - had five kills and a block in the Game 5 race to 15. She had two kills and a block in a three-point sequence that got Williamsport to match point at 14-9, then put away the final kill three points later.

After giving up three quick touchdowns to Thomas Johnson in the first quarter Friday night, the South Hagerstown defense buckled down a bit. The Rebels shut down TJ in the second quarter, forcing a punt, a fumble and an interception and giving the team a boost going into halftime. One run in the third quarter turned the tide back the way of the Patriots for good. Brandan Berney's third touchdown of the game was easily his most impressive, an 80-yard run in which he broke through or fought off five would-be tacklers, and the Patriots went on to defeat South 35-7 at School Stadium.

Last year, David Sword of Clear Spring felt compelled to do something to honor U.S. veterans. He rallied community support, and the eventual result was a veterans memorial at Clear Spring Park. This year, area veterans asked Sword, 47, how he planned to follow up. Sword's answer came in the form of a gathering of about 250 people Saturday afternoon, despite the rainy weather, for a picnic and concert honoring veterans. The celebration began outside of Clear Spring Park. Firetrucks and military jeeps escorted a bus carrying soldiers from Fort Belvoir, Va., who had been invited to the event through the Wounded Warrior Project.
