Rebels run, gun past Walkersville By CURT HORNBECKER / Staff Correspondent Like an uninvited guest at a party, the Walkersville boys basketball team insisted on hanging around until it was forcibly evicted. With just a 12-point lead early in the final period, No. 4 South Hagerstown scored 10 unanswered points in just over two minutes to whip the Lions 70-42 and remain undefeated on the season. "We played hard the whole game, we just weren't converting the whole time," Rebels coach Bob Starkey said.

If practice makes perfect, North Hagerstown's girls may want to try coming from behind in every game. It worked against Century on Jan. 8 -- when the No. 2 Hubs rallied from seven points down in the fourth quarter with a 15-1 run. And it worked again Saturday, when North used a 16-0 run spanning the third and fourth quarters to erase a 44-35 Walkersville lead and claim a 69-57 victory over the Lions in a key MVAL Piedmont matchup. "We had to just hang in there," Hubs coach Barry Brown said.

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.

Walkersville outscores South on gridiron By BOB PARASILITI / Staff Writer WALKERSVILLE, Md. - Walkersville had the chance to enjoy the post-Homecoming fireworks show on Friday. It's only because the Lions dropped the bomb just five minutes earlier. Walkersville avoided near a catastrophe of squandering a 21-point lead in a 12-minute span when quarterback Jeremy Fellows hit Shawn Kirmani with a 23-yard scoring pass with 1 minute, 37 seconds remaining to lift the Lions to a 27-22 victory over South Hagerstown.

WALKERSVILLE, Md. (AP) -- It could be another week before residents of Walkersville can safely drink their tap water without boiling it. Frederick County officials say tests of untreated water collected over the weekend from the water supply show high levels of bacteria and E. coli. Although the water was acceptable after it was treated, officials say some bacteria may be resistant to treatment. Test results on individual wells are pending. The boil advisory was issued after a pipe broke Friday in a manure lagoon on a farm in northern Walkersville.

kauffman@herald-mail.com WALKERSVILLE, Md. - What on paper looked like a close boys basketball matchup between Walkersville and Fort Hill Tuesday turned into the Lions' chance to serve notice to the rest of Class 2A West that they won't be eliminated without a fight. In every way, Walkersville turned Tuesday's region quarterfinal into a one-sided affair, forcing 23 Fort Hill turnovers while commiting only four and shooting 48 percent to the Sentinels' 27 percent in a stunning 68-36 blowout of the defending 2A West champions.
