North Hagerstown’s softball team scored seven runs in the first inning and cruised to a five-inning 10-0 victory over Rockville in a Maryland Class 2A West first-round playoff game. “We jumped out in the first inning and got a nice comfortable lead,” Hubs coach Amanda Fleming said. “We have been focusing on hitting in practice lately. A few of our girls had been in a slump. But I think today we got a nice offensive effort with hits and good base running.” North (12-7)

bobp@herald-mail.com HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. - There was only one thing tougher for Brandon Kearns to do than running the kickoff back 81 yards to give Hedgesville a go-ahead touchdown. That is catching the kickoff to run it back 81 yards for the go-ahead touchdown. On a night when penalty flags were on the ground as often as the ball, Kearns got his hands on the elusive pigskin Thursday and made the play Hedgesville needed for a 14-9 win over Rockville. Hedgesville fumbled seven times - four on botched punt snaps - and lost three to hand Rockville all of its points.

koelble@herald-mail.com WALKERSVILLE, Md. - Rockville would probably like to file a harassment charge against Walkersville, just like the Lions' previous 22 victims from the regular season. The Rams jumped off the bus from Montgomery County and immediately ran into the defensive-minded Lions as Walkersville opened defense of its Maryland Class 2A state championship with a 43-20 victory in the West region quarterfinals. The top-ranked Lions (23-0) threw double- and triple-team traps all over the floor that forced 37 Rockville turnovers, 23 in the opening half.

Exactly one month ago, Hagerstown Community College women's basketball coach Maryls Palmer questioned whether her team could finish the season with a winning record.

Eight goals in the first 4:10 of Saturday's Maryland Class 3A/2A West girls lacrosse quarterfinal against Rockville put smiles on all the North Hagerstown players' faces. A few short minutes later, those smiles were erased. No, it wasn't caused by a Rockville comeback - that wasn't in the cards as the Hubs advanced with a 20-4 victory at Mike Callas Stadium. But with 16:54 left in the first half, Leah Peterson crumpled to the turf with a right knee injury as she scored her fourth goal of the game to give the Hubs an 11-1 lead.
