Broadneck girls lacrosse top Urbana for the Maryland 4A title

OWINGS MILLS, Md. – The Broadneck and Urbana girls lacrosse teams repeated the same dance at Thursday’s 4A state championship, with the former building a lead only to see the latter shrink.

Time and time again, the Bruins clawed ahead and seemed to seize control. And time and time again, the Hawks reintroduced uncertainty. But there was a familiar sight at the end of the night: Broadneck players jumping up and down with the state trophy – the fourth time in a row – after a 10-9 win at Stevenson University’s Mustang Stadium.

The Louisville Bats lost 9-8 in 11. Box Score

Game notes

The Bats trailed 7-1 after the top of the 5th inning. They trailed 8-3 after the top of the 7th inning, but they scored a run in the 8th and four in the bottom of the 9th to send the game into extra innings. They wouldn’t score in the 10th or 11th, and in the 11th Toledo was able to push their free runner across and hold on for the win.

Levi Jordan was a hit machine in 2024, but on Thursday he picked up his first 4-hit game of the year and fell three short in the cycle. He is now hitting .356/.442/.519 on the season through 29 games.

Michael Trautwein extended his hit streak to five games. Three of those five games were multi-hit games. He had hits in eight of his nine games in May and hit .324/.342/.676 for the month after hitting just .123 in April.

Zach Maxwell made his Triple-A debut and pitched a perfect 10th inning, striking out two batters and needing just nine pitches.

The Bats were scheduled to play a doubleheader, but the second game was postponed due to rain. They will attempt another doubleheader on Friday afternoon.

The Chattanooga Lookouts lost 8-5. Box score

Game notes

It was another very tough outing for Rhett Lowder on Thursday evening. He allowed seven runs in 4.2 innings in his second start at Chattanooga, but in his third start he allowed five runs in just 1.2 innings while giving up five hits and a walk. Things accelerated in the 2nd inning when he loaded the bases on a bloop hit, a line drive single and a walk. He then hung up a pitch that hit the center wall for a 3-run double. After a strikeout, another line drive single came through, which led to another run. He was going to ground out at that point, but his pitch count for the inning rose there – he threw 32 pitches in the 2nd – and Chattanooga went to the bullpen at that point.

Through three starts with Chattanooga and has now allowed 15 runs on 20 hits, a hit batter and four walks in 11.2 innings. He retired 12 of the 57 batters he faced for the Lookouts.

Dominic Pitelli is off to a good start since being called up three days ago. He is 4-10 with a double, triple, two walks, three runs scored, three runs batted in and two stolen bases.

Francisco Urbaez is 4-11 since arriving in Chattanooga three days ago and three of his hits have been doubles.

Carson Rudd lowered his ERA to 1.46. He threw 24.2 innings for Chattanooga this season, didn’t give up a home run and struck out 30. However, he had some trouble throwing strikes, as he struck out two batters and walked 18 batters.

The Dayton Dragons won 6-1. Box score

Game notes

Javi Rivera got off to his best start as a pro on Thursday night, giving up just one hit in 6.0 shutout innings and striking out 11 batters. His previous career high was nine strikeouts in a game, which happened on July 6, 2022 with Daytona. Over his last two starts, he threw 11.0 innings of 3-hit shutout baseball with two walks and 19 strikeouts. After a rough start to the year, his ERA has dropped from 10.00 after his first six starts to 6.21.

Yan Contreras did not start the game, but he came off the bench to bat for Jay Allen II and serve as the designated hitter after the first inning. Contreras was 3-44 this season, but came through with two doubles on Thursday night.

After going 0-9 in three games against Great Lakes, Hector Rodriguez had two goals in each of the first three games in the series against Quad Cities.

Sal Stewart extended his hitting streak to six games. Thursday was the first game of the hit streak in which he scored multiple hits.

Cade Hunter extended his hit streak to five games and his on-base streak to 13.

Ricardo Cabrera picked up an extra-base hit for his third consecutive game. He scored five goals in the last two games.

Alfredo Duno had a three-hit game. His double came in the bottom of the 9th inning and went right into the middle of the wall, missing a home run by a few feet. He scored a few pitches later on Almonte’s walk-off hit.

Esmith Pineda had a two-hit day. It’s his first multi-hit game since the first game of the season. Between the two he played 26 games.

The ACL Reds lost 6-5. Box score

Game notes

Trio propels UCLA to an 8-0 victory in six innings over Georgia in Los Angeles Super Regional

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Leadoff hitter Mia Brady hit two solo home runs, Jordan Woolery added a three-run shot and sixth-seeded UCLA cruised to an 8-0 victory in six innings over No. 11 seed Georgia in the first game of the Los Angeles Super Regional on Thursday night.

UCLA (41-10) can eliminate Georgia (43-18) with a win on Friday.

Kaitlyn Terry, the Pac-12 Conference Freshman of the Year, ran her record to 21-1 with six shutout innings on the mound. Terry allowed four hits and three walks while striking out five.

Brady homered to start the bottom of the first inning in the Bruins’ wire-to-wire win. Brady doubled and scored on Jadelyn Alchin’s two-out single in the third to lift the lead to 2-0.

Brady homered to open the fifth inning and Woolery hit the ball over the center-field fence to cap a four-run inning. UCLA walked away with the mercy-rule victory on a two-out, two-run single by Savannah Pola. Brady has 17 home runs this season and 71 in her career.

Lilli Backes (18-7) took the loss for the Bulldogs. She allowed six runs on six hits and two walks, pitching 4 1/3 innings. Shelby Waters relieved the team and yielded two runs on two singles and a walk, retiring four batters in a row.

McDavid scores in double overtime, Oilers take 1-0 lead in Western Conference finals

Open this photo in the gallery:

Connor McDavid scored 32 seconds into double overtime as the Edmonton Oilers defeated the Dallas Stars 3-2 in Game 1 of the NHL’s Western Conference finals on Thursday.

The superstar captain took a pass from Evan Bouchard and redirected his third goal of the playoffs from the slot to Stars netminder Jake Oettinger.

Zach Hyman, with a goal and an assist, and Leon Draisaitl also scored for Edmonton. Stuart Skinner made 31 saves. McDavid also had an assist for a two-point night.

Tyler Seguin answered with two goals for Dallas, which got 35 stops from Oettinger.

Game 2 of the best-of-seven series takes place Saturday at the American Airlines Center. The game shifts to Rogers Place in Alberta’s capital on Monday and Wednesday.

McDavid joined Wayne Gretzky as the only two players in NHL history to record 20 assists in thirteen or fewer games in a postseason multiple times after setting up Hyman’s second-period goal.

Draisaitl, meanwhile, became the fifth different player of all time to open a postseason with a 13-game streak.

Edmonton killed a four-minute McDavid penalty for high-balling the opening faceoff of OT — Jason Robertson hit both of Skinner’s posts in quick succession on the ensuing power play — when center clipped Matt Duchene in the mouth.

McDavid then almost won it later in the first extra period when he tried to out-muscle Oettinger up front only to see goalkeeper and defenseman Chris Tanev combine to get in the way with their sticks and deny the golden opportunity.

The Stars dispatched the Colorado Avalanche with a double OT victory in Game 6 to advance to the third round, while the Oilers went the distance to get past the Vancouver Canucks.

Dallas lost to the Vegas Golden Knights in the conference finals last year. Edmonton was swept by Colorado at the same stage in 2022. Both the Golden Knights, who also eliminated the Oilers twelve months ago, and Avalanche went on to win the Stanley Cup.

Edmonton opened Thursday’s scoring 58 seconds into the second, when Brett Kulak’s partially blocked shot fell kindly to Draisaitl, forcing him to bury his ninth.

Skinner made a big stop on Esa Lindell a few minutes later before Edmonton headed the other way. McDavid’s initial rush chance was thwarted, but Hyman outwitted both Lindell and Tanev to slot home his fourth at 4:17.

McDavid also had 20 assists in 13 playoff games in 2022. Gretzky accomplished the feat in 11 games in 1983 and 1985, and in 13 games in 1987.

Kulak gifted Dallas, which reached the Cup final in the pandemic-necessitated 2020 bubble, the opening at 6:11 when he fanned on a pass picked up by Jamie Benn. The Stars captain moved the puck through the crease with Skinner down and out for Seguin to tap in his fourth.

Skinner, who lost and regained the Oilers’ crease against Vancouver, held down the fort late in the period as Dallas pressed.

The Stars tied the score with 3:23 left when Robertson’s shot hit Evgenii Dadonov in front and bounced right to Seguin for his second of the night.

Oettinger moments later made a huge save on Dylan Holloway on a breakaway to force OT.

Hint is

Stars No. 1 center Roope Hintz missed a third straight game with an upper-body injury. Head coach Pete DeBoer said he is hopeful the 27-year-old will be available for Game 2.

Post-season reunion

The Oilers and Stars met six times in seven playoffs between 1997 and 2003, but had not met since. Edmonton won the first series in dramatic fashion before Dallas took the next five.

Playoff fever

The NBA’s Dallas Mavericks are up 1-0 in the Western Conference finals after Major League Baseball’s Texas Rangers won the World Series in the fall.

“The city is buzzing,” Benn said. “We’re excited to see the Mavs continue and do so well. We support them as they support us. It’s a great time to be a sports fan here in Dallas.

“Hopefully good things will continue to come here.”
