HANCOCK - Friday wasn't one of the better nights for the Hancock football team. Westmar outplayed the Panthers in several different phases of the game helping the Wildcats to a 30-16 win. "I can't say enough about the intensity that our kids played with tonight," Westmar coach Shawn Swisher said. "I think that my coaches did a nice job of preparing our kids for tonight's game. At 1-4, it is tough to get the kids ready mentally. That's why I am very pleased. Our kids persevered.

HANCOCK - Saturday's Class 1A West first round boys basketball game between Hancock and Westmar included NBA-range 3-pointers, monstrous blocked shots, ankle-breaking crossover dribbles and a raucous crowd. In the end, however, it all came down to simple fundamentals. Westmar overcame a sluggish first half and finally wrested the lead from Hancock with just under 30 seconds to play in the third quarter as the Wildcats hung on for a 54-47 victory. Hancock, who led the game for more than 23 minutes, would never regain the lead, but did fight to within 48-47 with a minute to play.

CLEAR SPRING - On Friday night, the Clear Spring Blazers played their first home football game since 1917. But the night did not produce many good memories for the Blazers, who lost four fumbles and had three passes intercepted as Westmar took advantage of the seven turnovers to beat Clear Spring, 40-14. Blazers coach John Wilson tried to look at the bright side of things. "We had fun tonight for a while," Wilson said. "This town waited 87 years for a home game and the kids were pretty excited.

Staff Correspondent BOONSBORO - A high-tension May for the Boonsboro baseball team looked to continue against Westmar on Wednesday in the Class 1A West semifinals. The Warriors were already down two runs after the first inning, and another nailbiter seemed to be a guarantee. Then pitcher Craig Henson set down 12 in a row, and his teammates found their bats in a hurry, erupting for 13 runs in the next three innings for a 13-2 laugher that sent the third-seeded Warriors into Friday's region final.

HANCOCK - On the way to its most successful regular season in almost four decades, the Hancock boys basketball team played by a simple set of rules. Tuesday night in its Class 1A West playoff opener, it saw no reason to change things. Hancock used its tried-and-true strengths - perimeter shooting, dogged defense and constant focus - to wear down another foe, beating hot-shooting Westmar 90-81 in front of a standing-room-only crowd. "We challenged our kids and they came through," Hancock coach Jeff Spielman said.

By CURT HORNBECKER Staff Correspondent CUMBERLAND, Md. - During the regular season, Williamsport's boys' basketball team could win by accomplishing just two out of three team goals. But that didn't work Wednesday night, as Westmar upset the Wildcats, 39-34, in the Class 1A West region semifinals at Allegany High School. The loss snapped Williamsport's 18-game winning streak. "I felt like there were three things we needed to do to win," a disappointed Wildcats coach Kevin Murphy said.

Sophomore pitcher Jamie Fowler led South Hagerstown to a 12-0 five-inning win over Westmar in the first round of the Class 1A West playoffs on Monday. Fowler struck out 11 while allowing one hit and four walks in a complete-game effort. Westmar threatened in the first inning with two runners in scoring position, but Fowler got out of the inning with a pair of strikeouts. "Jamie moved the ball around well," said South coach Sabrina McCoy. "She was on today. " While South's pitcher controlled the game, Westmar's couldn't find the plate.

WILLIAMSPORT Despite a two-goal halftime lead, Williamsport boys soccer coach Carlos Reyes still didn't feel comfortable. Reyes said he talked about maintaining intensity in the second half, and his fourth-seeded Wildcats apparently listened. The response was a stifling defense and enough offense to secure a 5-0 victory over fifth-seeded Westmar in the Maryland Class 1A West quarterfinals Tuesday night. The win propels Williamsport into the semifinal round at top-seeded Boonsboro on Friday at 7:30 p.m. What concerned Reyes after the first 40 minutes was that his club seemed to lose focus after scoring two early goals.

bobp@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSPORT - When dealing with the unknown, rely on something you know. It's not exactly rocket science, but it works in volleyball circles ... just ask the Williamsport Wildcats. Normal styles and tendencies went out the window for Williamsport when it faced Westmar on Monday in the Maryland Class 1A West quarterfinals. There was a very small comfort zone for the Wildcats in their 25-10, 25-4, 25-9 victory. But at least there was one. "We just played our game," said Williamsport senior Lacie Johnson.
