IJAMSVILLE, Md. -- For a few moments, South Hagerstown had Urbana right where it wanted. Both teams opened with scoring drives and South Hagerstown trailed 7-6 with 7:23 left in the first quarter. Then the Hawks began to unload their full arsenal, and by night's end they rocked to a 55-19 victory over the Rebels in Urbana's home opener. Even Nick Stubbs' prolific effort wasn't enough for the Rebels (1-1). The senior ran 16 times for 204 yards and two touchdowns and had 145 yards in kickoff returns, but South's defense couldn't keep the Hawks in their nest.

Glenn Cross knows the mystery that is the game of football can sometimes be summed up in one tried and true expression. Things are not always as they seem. How true those words were for the Hubs Friday night as they opened the 1998 football season against Urbana. In a most improbable and frustrating first half, the Hubs found themselves statistically outplaying the Hawks as they ran a whopping 40 offensive plays to only 15 for Urbana. Hub running back Seth Staley cracked the tough Hawk defensive front for 51 of his game high 107 yards and North's defense created some early excitement as it stonewalled Urbana's running game on a fourth down-and-inches.

HAGERSTOWN -- The way coach Greg Kellick sees it, the South Hagerstown football team was taught a valuable lesson Friday night at School Stadium. "We got punched in the face and we had to fight tonight," Kellick said after the Rebels' 27-0 loss to Urbana. "I hope what we learned is that it's much better to throw the first punch. " The Rebels got hit hardest by Urbana's ground attack, surrendering 315 yards -- the majority coming from the 1-2 punch of Zach Herman and Wes Garey.

Too big. Too strong. Too fast. Too skilled. Simply put, Urbana's girls soccer team was too much for South Hagerstown in Wednesday's Maryland Class 3A West quarterfinals at Mike Callas Stadium. Six different Hawks found the back of the net as Urbana scored three times in each half and outshot the Rebels 31-2 in a 6-0 shutout. About the only bright spot for South (3-11-1) was the play of sophomore goalie Alanna Thompson, who made 16 saves. She made Urbana (8-7) - the defending 3A West champion - earn its goals, as none of them were cheap.

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - Kevin Wilkes seemed to experience some memory loss on one of his more memorable nights as Urbana's running back. "He's dinged in the head a little bit," Urbana coach Joe Polce joked after watching Wilkes score the Hawks' only two touchdowns in a 13-12 win over Jefferson on Thursday. Wilkes can only remember running a certain off-tackle play three times - scoring a touchdown twice and slipping once. Polce said the real count was around 12. "He might be trying to recover from getting hit by 51 (Martinsburg's Scott Stump)

North Hagerstown's undersized boys basketball team played with all the toughness, determination and heart it could muster on Friday night. But in the end, Urbana was simply better. Much better.

"We just ran into a shooting machine," North coach Tim McNamee said. "We didn't get out on them early, but then when we did get out on them, they still hit. " A.J.

One thing is for certain in 2013: There will be a new Herald-Mail Washington County Golfer of the Year when it comes time for postseason awards. Gone from the county's prep golf scene is three-time player of the year Aaron Staley, a North Hagerstown graduate now at McDaniel College. A couple of golfers are likely candidates for the honors as the season begins. That said, there are not many players returning who earned all-county first team or honorable mention honors in 2012. North Hagerstown senior Drew Miguel is the lone individual on last year's first team returning in 2013, and he'll be the top Hub as the team attempts to earn a trip to the Maryland Class 4A/3A state finals.

Senior Tyler Shindle did not figure to be a major cog in the North Hagerstown pitching staff when the season began. He was ticketed for late-inning work, possibly in save situations. But that's not what he has done lately as a starter for the Hubs. On Wednesday, Shindle scattered three hits and fought off a major seventh-inning threat to lead North Hagerstown to a 4-1 win over Urbana in the Maryland Class 3A West semfinals. The Hubs (18-3) now wait until Friday, when they'll have a final home game against the survivor of today's South Hagerstown-Seneca Valley game.
