kauffman@herald-mail.com It might have come two days after the Fourth of July, but the fireworks show put on by National Little League in Wednesday's District 1 9-10 Tournament was a first-class production. It started slow and built up to an impressive grand finale. What started out looking like a pitching duel with American Little League in the winners' bracket final at American's Brandenburg Memorial Park turned into a spectacular showcase for National in a five-inning, 10-0 victory that gave it a spot in Monday's championship game.

What started as a pitchers' duel turned into a rout on Monday night, as a seven-run seventh inning led Boonsboro's baseball team to a 9-2 MVAL Antietam victory over South Hagerstown. Coming into the seventh inning tied at 2, Boonsboro (4-6, 1-6) started the frame with a walk and a single before Brad Enfield hit a grounder to South shortstop Colby Johnson, who threw home, but the ball was dropped as Ethan Foster scored, chasing Rebels starter Airin Martin. “That was a touchy decision for me,” said Boonsboro coach Ronnie Stewart.

North Hagerstown's boys basketball team turned a scant 19-18 halftime lead into a runaway 61-39 MVAL Antietam victory over Boonsboro on Friday night. Boonsboro's Justin Jardeleza gave the Warriors an 18-16 lead by making two free throws with five seconds to go in the second quarter. However, North (14-4, 10-2) went into the break ahead thanks to a running 3-pointer by Nick Karlen at the buzzer. The Hubs couldn't find the mark in the first half - shooting 9-for-28 from the field - and were led by Kenny McCrary's eight points.

Skip Chambers is hoping it doesn't take four more years for his Boonsboro boys basketball team to win another playoff game. While the 41-33 win over Manchester Valley in the Maryland Class 1A West region East sectional quarterfinal Tuesday night wasn't a thing of beauty, the Warriors coach sees it as a step in the right direction, snapping a playoff losing streak that dates back to 2009. “It's been a while since we've won a playoff game,” said Chambers. “We're getting better.

The Smithsburg Leopards seemingly have put their disappointing 9-13 regular season behind them. After getting a bye in the first round, Smithsburg opened playoff action in the second round by eliminating the Boonsboro Warriors 69-58 on Thursday night in a Maryland Class 1A West Region East Section boys basketball semifinal. Smithsburg (10-13) will play at Brunswick on Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the East Section championship game. The Leopards are one win away from repeating as East Section champions and two wins away from repeating as West Region champions and advancing to a second straight Maryland state tournament.

There were pivotal errors during Monday's baseball game, but none were more pivotal - or decisive - than North Hagerstown's second miscue of the seventh inning. A two-out throwing error capped a five-run outburst to give Boonsboro an 8-7 MVAL Antietam victory over North. North (2-1, 1-1) had taken a 6-1 lead in the top of the sixth on two hits, a walk and error, before Dustin Gregory nicked North pitcher J.T. Root for a two-run double in the bottom of the inning. After North scored an unearned run in the top of the seventh for a 7-3 lead, coach Drew Crawford called on John Britton to close out the game, just as he had done last week against Williamsport.

Most high school basketball players push to get into the starting lineup. Che Swayne and Drequan Johnson seem to be pushing to be the sixth man on South Hagerstown's boys team. After starting the first few games of the season, Swayne took the role of bench player on Friday. And he ran with it, leading all scorers with 19 points to lead the Rebels to an 84-39 win over Boonsboro in an MVAL Antietam game at South. “Swayne had been starting for us, but Johnson played a nice game off the bench last game, so we gave him the start tonight,” said South coach Kevin Naylor.

Boonsboro's boys basketball team notched its fifth win of the season on Wednesday with a 57-28 MVAL Antietam victory over Catoctin. The Warriors (5-4, 3-1) set the tone from the tip with a 9-2 run, en route to a 13-4 lead by the end of the first quarter. Dylan Coulter and Scott Bennett each drained four points and Chad Cowden added three in the quarter to pace Boonsboro. Cowden and Bennett began to fire at will in the second quarter. Cowden scored six points in Boonsboro's eight-point run that started the period.

Boonsboro's baseball team climbed back to .500 with another strong pitching effort in a 6-1 victory over South Hagerstown in an MVAL Antietam contest. One month after the Warriors were last at .500 at 3-3, Friday's win evened their mark at 9-9 (7-6 Antietam) heading into today's game at Catoctin. Good pitching has been the therapy, as the Warriors have allowed just one run in three of their last four wins. Brian Cibula was the latest to deliver a sharp outing, as he continues to throw well in the latter stages of the season.

Those were the best four words to describe the six newest members of the Washington County Sports Hall of Fame, inducted at Saturday's banquet at Elks Lodge No. 378. But the big theme of the night seemed to be “Pay it forward.” “Anybody who's achieved anything of course owes it in part to their own skill, but its also because someone had an impact on them,” said inductee Jim Schlossnagle....
