DeMatha surges past Good Counsel in the fourth quarter to return to the WCAC title game At the start of the season, DeMatha’s coaches preached for their players to give 12 weeks of sacrifice. That’s how long the Stags would need to focus in order to win a fourth consecutive Washington Catholic Athletic Conference championship. In the postgame huddle Friday night, after the Stags had polished off a 28-13 victory over rival Good Counsel in a conference semifinal in Hyattsville, the coaches reminded the players of their promise.

Toews, Kane and Nick Schmaltz didn’t have a shot on goal for most of the night, and it was just Kane who ultimately managed to put a puck on net, tallying three shots on goal in the Blackhawks’ third-period push. “We did a really good job,” Capitals Coach Barry Trotz said. “I thought some of the most effective chances they had...

Cincinnati’s best player, wideout A.J. Green, is out with a hamstring injury. Green has torched the Ravens, averaging 120 yards receiving ...
