Raiders’ Slow Start Tough to Overcome

Raiders Outlast Hornets Stone’s 22 Points Boost Leonardtown to 2-0 By Chris Stevens Staff Writer

Photo By Chris Stevens

LEONARDTOWN – Long on experience and short on frustration, the Leonardtown boys’ basketball team handled Great Mills 65-49 Friday in the latest installment of the county’s most-heated high school sports rivalry. “We knew the way they were shooting the ball,” said Moe Stone, who led all scorers with 22 points, “they weren’t going to keep shooting like that all game.” Stone’s premonition was right on the money as the Hornets (1-2 overall, 0-1 in SMAC games) failed to drive to the rim, something that coach Frank Peck hopes to change during the course of the season. “This team has a jump shotfirst mentality, and we’re struggling in trying to change that,” Peck explained. “As a team, we need to start attacking the basket more. Hopefully, we can keep working on it.” In the early going, Great Mills was bombs away, as two Tarez Jones three-point shots opened up a 13-4 lead just 3:44 into the contest. The Raiders began working their way back into the contest, and overtook Great Mills for good with two minutes left in the first half. The Hornet lead, which stood at 2922 just a few minutes earlier, disappeared when junior guard Ryan

Moe Stone’s 22 points led the Raiders to a 65-49 victory over county rival Great Mills Friday night.

Rapid-Fire Patriots Hold on to Division Lead By Chris Stevens Staff Writer WALDORF – By the time the Leonardtown Ice Hockey team was able to get on the board, Northern High School had already done its damage in an 8-2 MSHL Southern Division victory Friday night at the Capital Clubhouse Ice Rink. Or, as acting head coach Gordy Bonnel, Sr. saw it, the Raiders had done the damage to themselves. “We spent the entire second period in the penalty box,” Bonnel said of the period that saw LHS (2-2 on the season) rack up 24 penalty minutes, which helped the Southern Division-leading Patriots expand their tenuous 2-0 lead to a comfortable 4-0 advantage. “We spent that entire period killing penalties and we were tired on offense.” Northern started the scoring just 43 seconds into the game, when Andrew Turgeon took a loose puck and deposited it behind goalie Sean Urlocker for the game’s first goal. It would be another 12 minutes before Drew Lantz scored to open up a 2-0 lead after the first period. The young Raiders continued to plug away, but the second period proved to be their undoing as they were short-handed for most, if not all, of the period. Killing penalties took away See Ice Hockey page B-

No. 14 St. Mary’s (Md.) Suffers First Loss at Baruch New York, N.Y. – The Baruch College men’s basketball team used a 16-7 run at the start of the second half to overcome a seven-point halftime deficit and hand No. 14 St. Mary’s College of Maryland a 73-54 setback Saturday afternoon for the Seahawks first loss of the season. Baruch’s sophomore guard Lionel Hilaire (Far Rockaway, N.Y./Archbishop Molloy) poured in a game-high 19 points in the second half alone to extend the Bearcats’ win streak to six straight games.

MORGANZA – In the game of basketball, momentum can either make or break a team’s chances to win on any given night. Last Wednesday night, it victimized the Chopticon girls’ basketball team as an early 10-0 third quarter scoring run by La Plata sent the Braves to a 56-36 loss in their home opener. “We started off kind of slow, and we wanted to come out of the locker room with a run of our own,” first-year head coach Judy Evans said. “But [La Plata] had the run.” Already flying high from a 29-18 lead after the first half, the Warriors (1-1 on the season) scored the first 10 points of the third quarter and coasted the rest of the way to their first victory of the season. “We talked about keeping the pressure on so we can feel See Girls Hoops page B-

ter two periods. “A lot of the guys were worn out from killing penalties,” Bonnel, who subbed for head coach Rob Barthelemes (traffic issues), said. “We got back to 4-2 in the third, but by then, we were starting to break down.” Gordy Bonnel and Charlie Yates continued their torrid pace, as they scored within 26 seconds of each other in the third to make a game of it briefly. Bonnel took a pass from Yates and beat Northern goaltender Stephen Horak just 1:39 into the third to break the ice. At the 2:05 mark, Yates took a face-off from his own end and scurried down ice, putting another shot past Horak and leaving the Raiders just two goals from a brand new game. However, The Patriots got two more goals from Turgeon, as well as scores from Wes Caparratto and Kyle Richnafsky to put the game away. Northern registered 40 shots on goal, with Urlocker stopping 21 through two periods and sophomore Brett Kibler turning aside 11 in the third period. The Raiders could only muster 12 shots the entire game, with all but two stopped by Horak. With Gordy, Jr. and Yates doing most of the scoring for Leonardtown, Gordy Bonnel, Sr. hopes that as the season progresses (the Raiders will have three weeks off from action before facing La Plata Jan. 7) the dynamic duo can learn to trust their teammates. “Once again tonight, Gordy and Charlie

A View From The Bleachers A Mirror Doesn’t Distort By Ronald N. Guy Jr. Contributing Writer I have a bone to pick with the NBA. In these difficult economic times, it’s even easier to get turned off by spoiled, millionaire athletes griping about how many shots or catches they get and boo-hooing over their multiyear/multi-million dollar contracts that don’t do their abundant skills justice. Oh to have such problems. Nevertheless, sports have a significant place in difficult times. During World War II, with many of its stars serving in the military, Major League Baseball continued to play citing the social importance of the national pastime. More recently, who can forget the resumption of baseball and football games after 9/11? And when trying to conjure up thoughts of simpler, nobler times, Paul Simon tapped a sports reference in his famous song Mrs. Robinson when he mused, “Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?…a nation turns its lonely eyes to you.” So yes, we need sports (and the accompanying selfish millionaires) when times are tough. They remind us of good times past and offer hope of good times to come. They snatch us away, ever so briefly, from difficult circumstances and give us something to cheer for – unless you’re a fan of the New York Knicks. For Knicks fans, good times may await, but you’ll have to wait until 2010. 2010? Heck, the economy may have rebounded by then. The financial structures of the major sports are unique and ridiculously complicated; yet they share the humble goal of promoting good competition and the financial health of the league’s franchises and players. One can certainly argue over the extent to which MLB, the NFL and NBA have achieved those goals.

MLB’s system is the closest to free-market, unrestrained capitalism. MLB, unlike the NBA or NFL, lacks a salary cap. What that yields is a bizarre product where a star player in New York (say one that’s courting an 80’s pop queen…allegedly) makes more than the entire payroll of another franchise. Some MLB teams are regular participants in free agency while other clubs function like quasi-minor league teams by embracing a cycle where young, cheap talent arrives, develops and eventually leaves as… you guessed it, a high-priced free agent. It’s flawed, but I guess it works at some level when you have teams like the Tampa Bay Rays finishing ahead of the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. Of course the Rays of today will be tomorrow’s Yankees, Mets, and Red Sox. The NFL’s system, which for my money is the best from a fan’s perspective, is based on a soft salary cap and revenue sharing. While there is a total value that yearly salaries cannot exceed, there are countless ways a team can manipulate its books to stay within the cap. Revenue sharing, a concept unique to the NFL, acts as a financial leveler by providing similar financial resources to small and large market teams. Still, the loopholed filled soft-cap allows flexibility for large-market, deep-pocketed owners like Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder (too bad the NFL doesn’t protect these owners from themselves) to chase coveted free agents. So if the NFL is good, MLB is bad, then what’s left is the ugly: the NBA. The NBA structure isn’t kind to mediocre teams or teams with little cap space. It is system that lacks flexibility and often forces teams to purposefully regress in the short-term in an effort to im-

prove over time. The only alternative for team’s lacking cap space is to trade players under long-term deals for players with expiring contracts. The contract status of a player is often more important than that player’s basketball talent: case in point those aforementioned New York Knicks. The Knicks, one of the NBA’s flagship franchises (heck, the NBA is headquartered in NYC), has been in complete disarray for several years. This off-season brought yet another General Manager and Head Coach; and with them a strategy for the future that basically has the team doing time over the next two seasons. The new regime has made a few bizarre trades that, on paper, do not improve this year’s team. What the trades do is create cap space for what appears to be an attractive 2010 free agent class led by some young man named LeBron James. And who can begrudge them? As the saying goes, “don’t hate the player, hate the game.” The Knicks are playing the hand they’ve been dealt by the NBA’s financial system. These moves do little for the Knicks this year or next, but they could look brilliant in the summer of 2010. With the basic goal of winning a championship and the constraints of the collective bargaining agreement, the organization’s approach makes absolute sense. But if you take a 50,000 ft (or bleacher) view of this situation, it is very troubling. One of the reasons sports fan deal with the “I am the center of the universe” nonsense of today’s pro athletes, is the promise of top-notch athletic competition where anything can happen, and just might, when we’re tuning in. The Knicks appear to be compromising that fundamental aspect of competition. If you’ve played competitive

Section B - 

sports, chances are you’ve been on a bad team or at least been confronted with circumstances where, on paper, your team was out-matched. In these situations, it’s at least sustaining, often inspiring, to think of real-world examples of David’s burying a slingshot stone right between the eyes of a perceived Goliath. But here we have the Knicks basically waving the white flag on the next two seasons (to the players credit the team has been surprisingly competitive…better than the Wizards so far). That’s just not right and it sends the wrong message. To use a hybrid word, it’s a travesshame-mockery!!! What’s to prevent a local high-school team full of talented underclassmen from basically going through the motions this year because next year seems so promising? Games, teams and seasons should matter - every one of them. Apparently the next two really don’t for the Knicks. We’re quick to point the finger at athletes that don’t give 100%. In this case the fingers should be pointing at the Knicks organization and the NBA. Extra Point: If you’ve somehow missed Stephen Curry’s rise to prominence in college basketball, you’ve missed a heck of a story. Curry, as an unheralded high school player from Charlotte, NC, flew under the radar of the “name” schools like Duke and North Carolina and landed at tiny Davidson College. Over the last three years, Curry has blossomed into a legitimate Player of the Year candidate and Davidson, once barely a blip on college basketball’s radar, is nationally ranked. In his and his school’s coming out party last year, Davidson came within a bucket of the Final Four, losing by two to eventual national champion Kansas in the regional finals. In this his junior year, Curry has been spectacular averaging an amazing 30 points per game. But on November 25th against Loyola, MD, Curry didn’t score a single point. Not one. Loyola employed an old gimmick defense - the

triangle and two. The concept of the triangle and two is to play zone with three players (the triangle) while the other two defenders play man-to-man defense. Only Loyola didn’t man-up on two Davidson players, they double-teamed Curry. So how did Curry respond? He spent the game selflessly occupying the two defenders; completely content on letting his four teammates dissect the

York, Pa. – St. Mary’s College of Maryland’s Rachel Hotchko (Yakima, Wash./ A.C. Davis) became the second Seahawk swimmer to earn Capital Athletic Conference Female Swimmer-ofthe-Week honors this season as announced by conference commissioner Tom Byrnes last Tuesday. Brie McDowell won the honor for the weeks of Nov. 11 and 18 for the Seahawks. The junior butterfly/freestyle specialist helped the Seahawks post a fourth-place finish at the annual Franklin & Marshall College Invitational this past weekend as Hotchko captured two events and registered an NCAA ‘B’ cut. Hotchko captured the 100 fly with her winning time of 58.00, just .04 seconds off the school record set by Beth Dobson in 2006 (57.96), and her time was also an NCAA provisional cut. She also won the 200 fly in 2:12.61. Hotchko tied her teammate, Eleanor Koerner, for fourth place in the 50 free as both swam a 25.26. She was also part of the winning 200 free relay (1:40.02), while helping St. Mary’s second-place finishes in the 400-medley relay

(4:03.12), 200-medley relay (1:50.83), and the 400 free relay (3:40.43). Story Courtesy of the St. Mary’s College Department of Sports Information.

“We held off the storm in the first half,” Wettengel said. “This was a big win for us, it’s Leonardtown and Great Mills on a Friday night, the place is always hopping.” “I thought that when were down by 10 or 11, we worked harder in several areas,” head coach Jake Heibel said. “We just got into a flow offensively; we got into a flow with our substitutions and we were able to limit their second chance shots.” The second half proved to be more of the same, as the Raiders outscored Great Mills 35-20 over the final two quarters. “I told the kids, the first

The Warriors got 12 points from Corrine Arnold and nine from Jameya Thomas, while Kirsten Norris led Chopticon (0-2) with eight points. Soph-

omores Myla Somerville and Bree Brown added seven and six points respectively. For a young team with a first year coach, the Braves, who fell in their first game at Reservoir High School the previous Friday, are working through their inexperience, something Evans hopes she and her players can overcome sooner rather than later. “There’s definitely a lot to work on, and this is a young team, a lot of this is new to them,” Evans said of starting and playing several underclassmen this season. “At the same time, we can’t use that as an excuse. We need to do a better job of putting the ball in the basket and we have to do a better of job of knowing who we have to guard on defense.” She believes that cutting

Baruch never looked back and led by as much as 20 (67-47) at 2:25. Farid finished the game for the Bearcats in double figures as well with 10 points and four assists. Irmer was 5-of-6 from the floor to contribute 10 points to the Seahawk offense, while sophomore forward Mike Fitzpatrick (Bethesda, Md./ Walt Whitman) added a ca-

three minutes of the second half were crucial,” Heibel expressed. “We were looking for some momentum to close the game.” “Coach wanted us to rebound better and keep it going in the second half,” Shingles said. “We were able to do that and we got that win.” Stone and Shingles were the only two players for Leonardtown in double figures, but the Raiders did have balance, as evidenced by eight points from center Zachary Maier along with Wettengel and Tyler Gladu scoring six points apiece. Jones led Great Mills with 13 points, while Basil Moye joined him in double

figures with 10 points, and Moe Queen and Darnell Mason added eight and seven points respectively. Peck hopes Friday night’s setback is a lesson for the Hornets, who field virtually a whole new team for the second consecutive season. “[The lack of varsity experience] is huge,” Peck said of dealing with the task of coaching a whole new group of kids once again. “We’ve talked about the difference of experience at the varsity level, but we can compete with a lot of teams. “We just didn’t adjust when they had a run tonight.”

down on mental mistakes, along with the proverbial trial by fire, will help the Braves get better as they learn each other as teammates, and learn their coach. “Improvement comes with game experience,” Evans explained. “A lot of it right now is just mental errors, knowing who you have to pick up on defense.” For Evans, also Chopticon’s girls’ lacrosse coach, taking over for Glenn Larnerd, Jr. as the girls’ hoops coach has been a learning experience, but one she looks forward to continuing, as well as helping the young Braves improve as the season progresses. “We’re doing fine; it’s not the start we wanted,” she admitted, “but we’ll go back to the drawing board and

get ready for Northern next week.”

Mystery Mammal By Theresa Morr

Meet one of the world’s most unusual creatures. Is it a zebra? Or is it a giraffe? Could it be a kind of horse? Well, it’s none of those animals. So, what is this curiouslooking fellow with the striking zebralike stripes on its hind quarters and upper legs; white “stockings” on its ankles; a giraffe-like head; and a body resembling a small horse? This mysterious mammal is the okapi (oh-COP-ee) and the only living relative of the giraffe. And like the giraffe, okapis have large, upright ears and males have short skin-covered “horns” atop their heads. Now add a long, black 12-inch prehensile tongue that the animal wraps around a tree branch and strips its leaves away. Okapis also use their incredible tongues as a grooming tool for cleaning ears inside and out, along with eyelid cleaning, too. Wow! So “giraffey.” Okapis have beautiful velvety reddishbrown oily coats, so water slides right off keeping the animal dry even when it’s raining. And if you could get close enough to touch its fur, your handprint would leave an impression! Adult males are about five feet tall and weigh around 450 pounds, while females are a bit taller and heavier. Females usually give birth to one calf, weighing about 35 pounds. The newborn can stand up within a half hour of birth and nurse shortly thereafter. And guess what? The youngster doesn’t poop for the first time until it’s between four and eight weeks of age. This adaptation helps to keep predators from sniffing out the little guy so it has time to grow and gain strength. In just two months, the calf triples in size and reaches adulthood in three years. These secretive, solitary forest dwell-

ers were discovered by scientists around 1900. Okapis are hard to find and observe in their habitat, the tropical Ituri Rainforest in the upper Congo River Basin in central Africa (once called Zaire). Their zebra-like stripes are a great camouflage when hiding in partial sunlight that filters through the forest. The stripes also help okapi youngsters to stay close to their mothers.You may wonder why these animals aren’t tall like their giraffe relatives that roam the African plains. Their rainforest home is dense with many kinds of trees with branches and vines hanging down, along with roots, and other entangling stuff. It would be hard for the animal to escape from predators, like leopards and human beings if it had long legs and a long neck. So, Mother Nature adapted this unique creature to its special habitat. Okapis are herbivores or plant eaters and browse on grasses, leaves, twigs, fruits, ferns, and fungi --- some of which are poisonous to humans. They communicate with each other mainly through urine marking and by scent glands located on each foot. As they walk through the forest, the glands emit a sticky, tar-like substance, marking their territory. Other okapi can tell if another has passed through just be checking the ground. Older okapis do not vocalize much but younger ones are known to cough, bleat, and make whistling sounds. But older females are very vocal when ready to mate. These unique animals are not on the endangered species list, but they are threatened by habitat destruction and poaching. A large section of Africa’s Ituri Rainforest is dedicated to threatened species of primates, birds, and about 5,000 okapi. Another estimated 25,000 okapi live in unprotected areas in the wild. The San Diego Zoo, along with other zoos and conservation organizations, support this Reserve. (Note: I could not confirm if the Washington National Zoo has okapis.)
