The Knicks were led by Neil Adler (17 points), and the trio of Chris Corbett, Dan Adler and Josh Frederick, each with 12. Antwan Brown scored 21 to pace the Bullets.


9-11 boys -- One half was enough for the Columbia Bulldogs over the weekend. The Bulldogs scored all their points in the first half en route to a 19-0 victory over the West Baltimore Christian Warriors.

They opened the scoring in the first quarter, taking a 7-0 lead on halfback J. C. Porter's 25-yard touchdown run and Aaron Dennis' extra-point run.

Halfback Jim Kinniry and fullback Aaron Dennis then added second-quarter touchdown runs of 5 and 2 yards, respectively, to extend the lead to 19-0.

The Bulldogs' Green team again played well. Members of the team include guards Cory Lockett and Harrison Goodman, and tackles Aaron and Asen Jones.

Youth soccer

Under-14 boys -- Goalkeeper Dave Kellogg made two stops during a shootout and blocked a penalty kick in overtime, as FC Columbia took the championship of the Delco Columbus Day Tournament in Pennsylvania.

Ryan Pflugrad and Stuart Kessler converted kicks during the shootout, after the final against Yorktown (N.Y.) ended 1-1 in regulation.

Pflugrad also had kicked the ball in the net on a free kick as the game ended, but officials, after conferring, ruled that time had run out. Mehr Dhillon scored during regulation on an assist from Matt Shapiro.

The close final was in contrast to the three preliminary games, in which FC Columbia scored 15 goals and did not allow any. Jesse McDonough, Lars Berg, Kasty Jamaris and Eric Folkemer led a defense that produced three straight shutouts.

Sam Salganik set the tone early, scoring three goals in the opener. Robbie Curtis and Nick Parypinski added goals in the 5-0 win over the West Chester Wings. Tim Kaufman, Shapiro and Dhillon had assists.

In the second game Saturday, Kessler and Kaufman each had a goal and an assist, and Matt Hewitt also scored in a 3-0 victory over the Greater Chester Valley Gunners.

FC Columbia locked up a spot in the final with a 7-0 win over the Cecil Rebels. Kessler got the team's second hat trick of the tournament, and Pflugrad scored twice and Parypinski and Dhillon once each. Hewitt and Billy Allen had assists.

Under-15 1/2 girls -- The Columbia Courage used a little bit of defense to gain a lot of respect over the weekend.

Allowing just one goal in three games, the Columbia team took first place at the Wall Fall Classic in New Jersey.

The team took 1-0 decisions over the Back Mountain Dragons (Scranton, Pa.) and the Wall Brats, dropping their only other game by a 1-0 score to the Old Bridge (N.J.) Unicorns.

Stephanie Wu and Christina Eberhart scored goals to lead the Courage offense, and sweeper Shanti Smith and goalie Nyesha Ford led the defense. Columbia's Brooke James was named Tournament Most Valuable Player.

Under-10 girls -- The Soccer Association of Columbia Dynamo lost one game and tied two over the weekend in the Washington Area Girls Soccer League 1993 Rael Vodika Memorial Tournament.

The Dynamo's only goal of the tournament came in a 1-1 tie against the Springfield Strikers. Kaitlin Porter scored unassisted.

Against the Southwest Aces, Columbia dominated but couldn't find the net in a scoreless tie. Rebecca Valle and Ashley Pollock led the offense.

The team's only setback was a 2-0 loss to the Prince William Sparklers. Jennifer Bostwick, Caitlin Jenkins and Carolyn Schmid provided solid defense in the loss.
