ESPN airing Good Counsel, Gilman game in August

When Good Counsel and Gilman play Aug. 23, the game will be nationally televised. The 8:30 p.m. game at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium will be broadcast on ESPNews. In the last Baltimore Sun poll of the 2012 season, Gilman was ranked No. 1. Good Counsel, the 2012 Washington Catholic Athletic Conference champion, is ranked No. 19 in the nation by MaxPreps. Good Counsel won the last meeting between the two teams, 20-19 in overtime, a game the Falcons hosted Aug. 31, though the casts this year will look much different. Falcons running back Dorian O'Daniel, who's heading to Clemson, ran for two touchdowns. Receiver Kendall Fuller, who will be at Virginia Tech, caught another. Gilman quarterback Shane Cockerille (Maryland) passed for 175 yards and a touchdown, but was sacked four times. Next month's contest is part of ESPN's 13-game High School Kickoff series that weekend.

NHL: Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby and defensemen Mike Green and Karl Alzner are among the 47 invitees to Hockey Canada's orientation camp ahead of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia. For Green, it's a second chance to fulfill his dream of suiting up for Canada in the Olympics after missing the cut for the Vancouver Games in 2010. Canada's camp will be held Aug.25 to 28 in Calgary, Alberta. Fellow Capitals defenseman John Carlson is among 48 invitees to the U.S. team orientation camp from Aug. 26 to 27, at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va. Russia also announced its 35-player preliminary roster, which includes Olympic ambassador Alex Ovechkin, along with top prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov. Former Capitals Semyon Varlamov, Alexander Semin and Sergei Gonchar will also attend Russia's camp in Sochi on Aug. 23 to 24. USA Hockey hasn't announced its roster for camp — despite the fact that there will be no on-ice practices because of the need to insure NHL contracts. Also, the Capitals have re-signed forward Nicolas Deschamps to a one-year, two-way contract. Terms were not disclosed.

Horse racing: Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas will have Preakness winner Oxbow on the Monmouth Park grounds late Friday afternoon as the classic-winning colt is set to go postward in Sunday's Grade I $1 million William Hill Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park. Lukas sent Oxbow out on the Oklahoma training track at Saratoga on July 15 to work, but not for an official session recorded by the clockers. Oxbow's last official work was at Churchill Downs on July 6, when he breezed five furlongs in 1 minute, 2 seconds. Gary Stevens, who was in the irons for all three of Oxbow's Triple Crown efforts, keeps the call and will jet in from Del Mar, Calif. The Haskell has an estimated post time of 6:20 p.m. "He worked here and he's doing very well," Lukas said from Saratoga. "He went five-eighths, but I let him breeze through the stretch here last Monday. I thought that 97- degree heat might cook him. The thing is, he puts so much into his works in the morning that I backed off. I didn't work him in the heat. I'm not going to. He'll just gallop up to the race."
