No. 24 Swarthmore Handles St. Mary’s 5-1 Swarthmore, Pa. – For the second time in three games, the Swarthmore College men’s soccer team scored five goals against their opponent as the No. 24 Garnet notched a 5-1 victory over St. Mary’s College of Maryland Sunday afternoon in non-conference action. Swarthmore (2-0-1) fired off four goals in the second half to blow wide open its 1-0 halftime lead. St. Mary’s (1-2-1) avoided the shutout when freshman midfielder Matt Grady headed in sophomore defender Amir Reda’s pass at 77:03. The Seahawks will look to return to their winning ways next Saturday, Sept. 13 when St. Mary’s travels to Dover, Del. to take on Wesley College in the Capital Athletic Conference opener for both squads.

Craig Hawkins of Northern High School ran for five touchdowns as the Patriots cruised to a 50-0 victory over Great Mills Friday Night.
Patriot Games Not in Hornets’ Favor Northern Running Back Scores Five TDs in Rout By Chris Stevens Staff Writer GREAT MILLS – Despite heavy rain and whipping winds during the game, there was a positive atmosphere surrounding the Great Mills football team’s home opener Friday Night. Then Northern High School really rained on the parade. Led by senior running back Craig Hawkins’ five first-half rushing touchdowns, the Patriots spoiled the Hornets’ 2008 debut, handing Great Mills a soggy 50-0 loss at Hornets stadium. The loss was a painful reminder of how 2007 went for the Hornets, and head coach Bill Griffith, noticeably displeased afterwards, saw it for himself. “They came to play football, our guys didn’t,” Griffith said. “They smacked us in the mouth and we

didn’t smack back.” The disappointing loss is Great Mills’ 11th in a row, dating back to the beginning of last season. Their last win came in the 2006 regular season finale against Chopticon High School. Northern used their effective running style to end the game before it really began, scoring touchdowns on all seven of their first half possessions. Five of those scores belonged to Hawkins, a 5’9, 160 pound speedster that ran around and past the Hornets for touchdown runs from 20, 50, 4, 18 and 31 yards away in the first half. “That’s what we’ve done for the last eight years,” Patriots coach A.J. Berbarian said of his team’s rushing efforts. “We move the ball, and we move it fast.” The Patriots, aside from Hawkins’ efforts, got a 37 yard touchdown scamper from junior Keith Rawlings and a one-yard burst from Dijion Clayton that made the score

Just Us Grinds Out Sweep With Bats Silent, Pitchers Shut Down SWAT By Chris Stevens Staff Writer

Audi Queen’s RBI single proved to be the winning hit.
GREAT MILLS – With their usually potent bats idling in Sunday afternoon’s women’s softball league quarterfinal game, Just Us got solid pitching from Aggie and Denise Lloyd to finish off their sweep of SWAT, 9-5 at the Brass Rail. “That’s what we’re counting on; those two pitching to get us through games when we don’t hit,” said manager Lamont Saxon. “They are two great pitchers with two different styles, and they did a good job.” Just Us opened the series by defeating SWAT 26-7 at Chancellor’s Run Park last Wednesday evening, but needed solid pitching to put this series behind them on Sunday. Denise Lloyd pitched the first four frames for Just Us, allowing just three runs on eight hits – all of which came in SWAT’s first turn at bat. It looked as though Just Us would escape the bottom half of the first inning unscathed when SWAT’s Beth Woodburn grounded to Just Us second baseman Anita Nelson with
one out and the bases loaded. Nelson appeared to tag Amanda Johnston before she reached second base and threw out Woodburn, but Johnston was ruled safe and pitcher Kara Jones scored for SWAT. The next hitter, first baseman Denise Ocasio, lined a double into left center that scored Lex Gray and Johnston to give SWAT a 3-0 lead. SWAT did not score in the last three frames that Denise Lloyd pitched, and could only muster up two runs against Aggie Lloyd in her three-inning stint. The Just Us offense, meanwhile, started to show some life with a fiverun fourth inning that put them ahead to stay. With Angelita King leading off the inning with a walk, Karen Camp blasted a two-run homer to left center to open up the scoring. Shortstop Audi Queen’s solid single scored Deevie Yates, who reached on an error by Kara Jones, with the go-ahead run. Jones snagged a one-hopper by Yates and mistakenly threw to second base, figuring See Just Us Softball page B-

St. Mary’s (Md.) Remains Unbeaten with 1-1 Draw at Gettysburg Gettysburg, Pa. – The St. Mary’s College of Maryland women’s soccer team battled with Gettysburg College, ranked 10th in the Middle Atlantic region, to a 1-1 double overtime draw in non-conference action on a very rainy Saturday afternoon.
Following a scoreless first half, the Seahawks (20-1) struck first just 38 seconds into the second half when junior forward Sophia Esparza broke away from the defense and chipped in a shot from just outside the box for a 1-0 St. Mary’s lead. Gettysburg (1-0-2), who finished with its second consecutive 1-1 tie, forced overtime with less than seven minutes remaining in regulation. Following a corner kick that had been cleared out of the box, freshman midfielder Jenna Sickle collected the loose ball and directed it back to the middle of the box where sophomore defender Sarah Yeager headed the ball to sophomore forward Mara Dold for the equalizer and Dold’s first career tally. Overtime was pretty tame as the water-logged, exhausted squads managed only shot each. St. Mary’s managed to edge the Bullets in all categories as the Seahawks posted a 16-12 margin in shots and a 4-2 advantage in corner kicks. The Bullets’ goal ended senior Marie Oben’s shutout streak at 265:39 minutes. The last time that Oben and the Seahawk defense gave up a goal was in the 89th minute of the 2007 Capital Athletic Conference Quarterfinal against Wesley College Oct. 28, 2007. She made three saves in today’s contest with all three coming in the first half. Senior Danielle St. Pierre registered four stops, including three in the second half.

From The Sports Desk Brady’s Injury Highlights Wild Week 1 in the NFL By Chris Stevens Staff Writer The New England Patriots’ quest to atone for February’s Super Letdown against the New York Giants may be wrecked along with Tom Brady’s knee. The Pats’ signal caller, who set a National Football League record with 50 touchdown passes last season, took a hit to the knee early in Sunday’s regular-season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs, and it is unknown how long he will be out, although early predictions have Brady missing the remainder of the season. If he is indeed out of commission, the chase for the Super Bowl just opened up considerably, with at least 20 of the league’s 32 teams having a legitimate shot at playing in Tampa Bay Feb. 1 for the right to call them-
selves champions. However, we have about 18 weeks to go before we can even start identifying possible contenders, so let’s just start with some of the surprises week 1 has dealt so far. Obviously, aside from Brady’s injury, another quarterback took center stage in his debut for a new team. The much-maligned (especially within the confines of this column) Brett Favre had a successful debut in green and white, as the New York Jets spoiled the debut of Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano, beating the Fins 20-14 at Dolphins Stadium. Favre was an efficient 15of-22 for 194 yards and threw two scoring strikes, but it took a Darrelle Revis INT in the end zone to preserve the Jets’ first win with their new and legendary quarterback. One has to think the Jets are now the favorites in the AFC East,
especially if Brady’s injury is as serious as it is thought to be. Another heavily critiqued man under center who had a breakout Week 1 was the Philadelphia Eagles’ Donovan McNabb. With the pressure on him to stay healthy and lead the Eagles back to respectability, McNabb threw for 361 yards and three scores as Philadelphia mollywhopped the St. Louis Rams 38-3 at Lincoln Financial Field. With starting wide-outs Kevin Curtis and Reggie Brown sidelined with injuries, McNabb may have found a new and exciting target in rookie DeSean Jackson. The fleet of foot Jackson, a second round pick out of Cal, caught six passes for 106 yards and also peeled off a 60-yard punt return in his NFL debut. That type of explosiveness, one that has been missing from
Section B -
the Eagles’ offense and special teams for years, is what will be key if Philly is to overtake the Dallas Cowboys for the NFC East title. Speaking of the Cowboys, they marched into Cleveland and stifled the Browns 28-10, exposing the Browns’ lack of depth in the secondary and raising questions if this is the same Cleveland Browns team that won 10 games a season ago and missed the playoffs by virtue of a tiebreaker with Tennessee. Only time will tell for Cleveland. Meanwhile, Adam “don’t call me ‘Pac-Man’” Jones made his Cowboys debut and defended generally well, save for a pass interference penalty that set up the Browns’ only touchdown of the game. As long as he’s clean off the field, he can mess up a time or two on it – his talent for covering receivers and returning punts is something the Cowboys will benefit from as the season progresses. A moment of silence for Redskins fans, please. Thank you. Thursday Night’s 16-7 loss to the weakened Super Bowl champion Giants underscores that the problems the ‘Skins face were a lot bigger than Joe Gibbs and will be much bigger than new head coach Jim Zorn. Jason Campbell is not the answer at quarterback, and Clinton Portis is overworked. The biggest problem of all however, is the fact the Skins are still missing Sean Taylor. That kind of loss of professional talent, and more importantly, human life is so very difficult to overcome. The NFC South division is kind of like the pickup bar where the less than desirable
folks hang out – somebody has to take them home. The New Orleans Saints got off to a good start in division play by edging the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home, while the Carolina Panthers were able to outlast the high-powered San Diego Chargers without all-world wide receiver Steve Smith. Smith was suspended for the first two games of this season for a training camp incident in which he clocked the Panthers’ newest acquisition, cornerback Ken Lucas. Lucas and Smith had a personal rivalry dating back to Lucas’ days with the Seattle Seahawks, and well… once rivals, always rivals apparently. The Atlanta Falcons started fresh once again, with rookie quarterback Matt Ryan orchestrating a 34-21 victory over the hapless Detroit Lions. With three of the four teams in the division winning Sunday, this might be the only time that happens all season, as they will more than likely beat the dog snot out of each other to see who wins the South with a 9-7 or 10-6 record. Meanwhile, the Lions continue to cement their reputation as the NFL’s longestrunning comedy act. Last week, the Lions released running back Tatum Bell to make room for former Bengals back Rudi Johnson, who had been cut by Cincinnati a couple of days before. While Johnson was meeting with team president and general manager Matt Millen to iron out the details of his contract, his luggage, with all of his identification and a couple hundred dollars were stolen from the lobby
of the team’s headquarters in Highland Park, Mich. Who is the presumed culprit? Tatum Bell. Johnson was shown security camera footage of Bell making off with the bags and was, of course, very upset. Bell, for his part, contends that his mistakenly picked up Johnson’s bags, as he thought they belonged to another teammate who was cut by the Lions, saying that he, “ain’t no thief.” While being caught on camera and claiming that it was not you worked for R. Kelly, I doubt Mr. Bell has the same kind of success in this case. As far as surprises go, count the Chicago Bears’ 2913 spanking of the Indianapolis Colts as the biggest one of the weekend. The Bears, a team with a spectacular defense but a limited – and I do mean LIMITED – offense, took the fight to the Colts, who while just getting Peyton Manning back were thought to win this game going away. Turned out to be the other way around. The Bears looked as though they are gearing up for an NFC North title run, which should be a little easier without Brett Favre in the way. All in all, pro football is back, and not a moment too soon. If Week 1 is any indication, these next four and a half months should prove to be full of surprises as we slowly find out who the contenders and the pretenders are for Super Bowl XLIII.

Meanwhile, the Hornets’ offense struggled to find a rhythm on the slick track caused by early rains from Tropical Storm Hanna. The Hornets turned the ball over two times on fumbles and twice more on interceptions. Great Mills totaled just 71 yards of offense for the entire game, and only crossed over into Patriots territory three times for the length of the contest.

Conversely, Northern rolled up 442 yards of total offense, 355 of those yards coming in the decisive first half. “I don’t know if it’s something we did or something they didn’t do,” Griffith said, “but it’s back to the drawing board for next week. They got out here and were like deer in headlights.” Game Notes: Junior quarterback Brian Jenner and freshman running back Aaron Wilkerson both left the game in the second half for the Hornets. Jenner was experiencing cramps while Griffith seemed less optimistic about Wilkerson’s departure. “He took a direct hit on his right wrist,” Griffith said solemnly. “I’m very concerned about him right now…” Northern sat all of their starters on offense and defense in the second half, as a running clock was used after the Patriots went ahead by a considerable margin… Great Mills defensive tackle Derrick Pettet recorded one sack – and three carries for 16 yards as a fullback on offense in the third and fourth quarters. Great Mills will host La Plata this Friday night at 7 p.m.

Heightened Awareness of Deer Requested
Be Prepared for WeatherRelated Outages
Citizens are reminded that they need to heighten their awareness of deer during the fall breeding season. Deer typically do not stop and look both ways when they cross a highway. Collisions between deer and automobiles result in a substantial cost, including damage to vehicles, the loss of a valuable wildlife resource and human injuries or fatalities. Although between 2006 and 2007, the total number of deer/vehicle collisions reported in St. Mary’s County only increased from 72 to 74; as population continues to grow, this danger becomes greater. Most of these accidents occur between dusk and dawn. Watch for deer where roads pass through wooded or rural areas. The most important thing drivers can do to reduce the chances of an accident with a deer is to drive the speed limit. At night, reduce speeds below the limit, especially in rain, snow or fog. Here are some other tips to keep in mind as a driver: · Deer usually travel in groups and generally maintain a home range of about one (1) square mile. If you see a deer cross the road, slow down and use caution. Additional deer may be out of view and more are likely to follow. · A deer standing calmly in a field may suddenly jump into the road. Anticipate the potential for this rapid change in posture. · Elevate your deer awareness at locations with deer crossing signs. Deer crossing signs indicate areas where heavily used deer trails cross roadways. Slow down and watch for the eye-shine of deer near the roadway edges. · Be especially aware during the morning and afternoon. Deer tend to be more active during the early
Principal Susie Fowler, this is the first time a St. Mary’s County program has been featured in the book. “Tellin Stories” was organized by Ms. Karyn Timmons, a Lexington Park Elementary School parent liaison, and brought together a diverse group of parents who spent an hour or two together each month to uniquely share stories of their heritage, their lives, and their hopes for their family’s future.
As Tropical Storms Ike and Josephine churn in the Atlantic, it’s a good time to refresh area residents with the important steps in preparing for a storm and responding to stormrelated outages. Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO) is monitoring weather forecasts, and co-op crews are prepared to restore power when outages occur. SMECO’s outage restoration policy is to make repairs that will restore service to the most people in the least amount of time. Transmission lines and substations are repaired first, followed by distribution lines that feed neighborhoods; tap lines and individual service lines are then repaired to restore power to customers who may still be without electricity. Customers can view a two-minute video, “Preparing for a Power Outage” to help them take steps to get ready in case an outage occurs. Customers can see the video on the co-op’s Web site at www.smeco. coop. The video is also available on Comcast cable television’s video-ondemand channel 888 and Metrocast cable television’s channel 999, under Home Improvement or Real Estate, Energy Companies. The following is a list of steps customers can take to prepare for power interruptions: • If someone in your household depends on electricity to operate life support systems, make plans for alternate sources of power or alternate lodging. Call our special needs information number: 1-866-524-9402. In addition, you can check with your local fire department, which may offer temporary shelter. • Keep flashlights and fresh batteries on hand. • Stock nonperishable foods and

If your power goes out: • Call SMECO’s Outage Hotline at 1-877-74SMECO or 1-877-747-6326. • Turn off all the major appliances in your home, especially the heat pump. This will prevent damage to the appliances once the power is restored. Then, try not to turn everything back on at once; turn on appliances gradually so the electric demand does not jump suddenly. • Make sure the oven and stove are off to prevent fires if the power comes back on while you’re away. • Open the freezer and refrigerator as little as possible. This will help food stay fresh longer. • Never touch downed power lines or attempt to remove trees from power lines. Contact with live lines may result in serious injury or death. Let qualified SMECO crews handle the clearing and repair work. Please report downed power lines to SMECO immediately by calling 1-888-440-3311.

bag and detected a strong odor of marijuana. There were several empty sandwich bags and a silver “Chefmate” digital scale contained in the gray bag. The gray bag also contained suspected marijuana residue. Douglas was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and possession of controlled dangerous substance paraphernalia.
