* Over-30 men -- Even the rain couldn't stop the surging Columbia Cardinals on Saturday.

Despite a driving rainstorm that shortened their game against host Broadneck to five innings, the Cardinals squeezed out a 5-4 victory to raise their record to 3-0 in the Chesapeake Men's Senior Baseball League.

Columbia jumped on top early, scoring four runs in the second. Player-manager Joe Lomascolo looped a double to right to drive in two runs, and Mike Briel followed with a triple to right-center to drive in two more as the Cardinals took a 4-0 lead.

After Broadneck fought back to tie the game in the top of the fifth, the Cardinals rallied for the winning run in the bottom of the inning.

With one out, Lomascolo walked, and Briel followed with a single that was misplayed by the center fielder, allowing the runners to take second and third.

Later in the inning, Lomascolo came home on a wild pitch for the game-winner.

Columbia starter Lou Caracci hurled the complete game, allowing two runs and three hits while striking out seven. Caracci picked up the win in all three games.

* Under-12 boys -- Precision passing paced the Columbia Soccer Club Santos to a 9-1 win over the Bowie Bison this past weekend.

David Jaques led the scoring with five goals, followed by three by Zach Herrera and a goal and two assists by Georgio Phillips. Also sparking the offense with assists were Jason Freiert and Daniel Triman (two each) and Landry Honza.

Columbia goalie Brett Rajala had little to worry about as his defense, led by Max Markotic, James Graham, Mike Malloy and Kalil Hall, thwarted most of the Bisons' scoring chances.

Also contributing to the win were Rory Peters, Richie Jankiewicz and Andrew Essey.

* Under-13 girls -- The Columbia Connection struggled over the weekend with a 9-0 loss to the Soccer Club of Baltimore Strikers and a 3-1 loss to Glyndon.

Kristen Dinisio scored the lone Connection goal against Glyndon off an assist from Michelle Jenkins. Goalie Liz Fisher made more than a dozen saves in the two games.

Jamie Beale also contributed on defense for Columbia.


K.A.O.S. continues to wreak havoc in the Sunday B Division of the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks Fall Basketball League.

After Sunday's play, K.A.O.S. stands alone in first place at 3-0, followed by Knudson Homes and Fred Frank Bailbonds (both 2-1), The Fitness Formula and Running Rebs (both 1-2) and the Whalers (0-3).

There's more of a dogfight in the Sunday C Division, where West End Service and the Cowboys are both 2-0, and Milts and James Buch and Son each trail by a game at 1-1.

The story's much the same in the Tuesday C Division, where Team Ugly and The Unknown are 2-0, followed by Bode Floors and Information Management Services, Inc., (both 1-0), and the Rainmen (1-1).

In the smallest of the divisions, Wednesday C, Three Peat (2-0), Amore (2-0) and Thonk (2-1) all vie for the lead.


Parity is the name of the game in the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks Co-Rec Volleyball leagues.

Through the early weeks of the season, no fewer than a dozen teams in the three divisions are positioned to challenge for first place.

In the A Division, Happy Jack leads the way at 7-2, followed by the Flesheaters (6-3) and TTGBITN (5-4).

Even more teams challenge for the lead in the B Division, The TRC Mallers stand alone in first place at 7-2, but are being pursued by 30-Plus (6-3), The Butler Did It (6-3) and Cricket Passers (5-4).

Three other teams, Woodland Village, Foul Play and the No Neds, all stand just three games out at 4-5.

The widest margin for a first-place team can be found in the C Division, where the Chain Gang (9-3) leads Team 2 and K's Team (both 5-4) by 2 1/2 games, and Laidlaw Environmental (6-6) by three.
