Top-ranked McDonogh and No. 3 Calvert Hall played to a 1-1 overtime draw in boys soccer yesterday, and when it was over, it was apparent the teams had different views of the outcome.

While the visiting Cardinals somehow found enough energy to pat goalkeeper Mike Brashears on the back for a job well done, the Eagles went to the bench with empty looks.

Brashears turned aside 15 shots - six from point-blank range in the closing minutes of regulation plus the 20 overtime minutes - to cause the home team's frustration.

The Cardinals go to 9-5-2 overall and 7-2-2 in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference, with McDonogh (14-1-2) now 8-1-2 in league play. The Eagles' only loss came on the road against the Cardinals, who rallied for a 2-1 win Sept. 4.

Calvert Hall coach Andy Moore talked about the gutsy effort of his Cardinals - battling injuries coming into the game and during - and the fine performance from his senior goalkeeper.

"Mike did his job. As a goalkeeper, sometimes you've got to have a big day and save your team," Moore said. "And he did that time and again with some point-blank shots and some really dangerous balls they put through the box. He handled it."

Senior Christian Barreiro gave the Cardinals a 1-0 lead with 23 minutes left in regulation, scoring on a half-volley from 10 yards out on a ball sent in by Matt Bauer.

The Eagles answered less than three minutes later when Chris Agorsor scored inside the far post from 8 yards out on the left.

Brashears took over from there - quickly reacting to a number of shots that came his way to keep the score tied.

"I think after we scored, they definitely got a sense of urgency. I was just trying to stay loose on my toes, reacting to the ball and just somehow get a finger or a toe on the ball," Brashears
