An early goal from Matt Liska and a 14-save performance from goalkeeper Stephen King sent the No. 6 Archbishop Curley boys soccer team past top-ranked McDonogh, 1-0, yesterday.

Liska provided all the offense for the Friars in the third minute. King made several brilliant saves, including one diving to his right late to turn away a shot from Jonathan Ports.

Curley (17-5) is 13-2 in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association's A Conference. McDonogh, coming off Friday's 3-1 win over New Jersey's St. Benedict's, ranked No. 10 nationally, is 17-2-2 overall and 13-2 in league play.

"I was happy with the effort: We were just out of gas," said McDonogh coach Steve Nichols. "You have to give Curley credit - they got an early goal and did what they had to do to keep it."
