In a game that lasted three-plus hours and had 81 points scored, it was a play by the Northeast Lauderdale defense that finally settled the cross-county feud here at the Trojan Field before a capacity crowd on Friday night. Defensive end Marcus Brown sacked West Lauderdale's C.J. Fountain for a 10-yard loss on a fourth down on the Trojan 12 with four seconds left. The play preserved Northeast's 44-37 win over the Knights. The bitterly fought contest handed the victors a 3-0 record. West Lauderdale falls to 2-1.
LOUISVILLE Once Meridian and Louisville got into the flow Friday night, they turned in a pretty decent performance at R.E. Hinze Stadium with the Wildcats taking a 21-13 victory. Both traditional powers entered the contest with uncharacteristic 0-2 records and showed why in the early going. Louisville shut Meridian down completely in the first quarter as the M-Cats managed just 12 yards on six plays. Louisville fared only a little better as 16 plays netted 54 yards. Both teams finally got going late in the second quarter.

Robert Sanford needed every ounce of his four-stroke edge heading into the final round of the Briarwood Men's Club Championships Sunday afternoon. Sanford, who struggled for much of the day, managed to hold off a strong closing bid by Joey Mabry to win the title by one stroke. Incredibly, he had only two birdies the entire round, while Mabry had a hot hand and finished shooting a 33 on the back nine to end 2-under -par for the day. Sanford finished the championship at 4-under-par 140 after Sunday's final round of 1-over 73.

CLEVELAND Very few quarterbacks can make you nervous when they're three points down, 84 yards away, with a minute left in the game. Joe Montana comes to mind. John Elway. And of course, Dan Marino. After the Miami Dolphins blew a 20-3 fourth-quarter lead Monday night, Marino hit four quick passes on an 84-yard, 68-second drive that beat the Cleveland Browns 27-23. Mark Higgs finished it off by diving over from 1 yard out with seven second remaining. It the 19th time Marino had brought the Dolphins back from a fourth-quarter deficit.
