Columbia's Brian West (Centennial, Virginia), who was unexpectedly cut a couple of weeks ago from the U.S. Olympic men's soccer team, was named yesterday to the country's full national team for its friendly match April 26 against Russia in Moscow. West, 21, an emerging midfielder for Major League Soccer's Columbus Crew, was one of three U.S.-based pros added to coach Bruce Arena's team for the first game ever for the American men in Russia. He set up the Crew's winning goal against the Metro-Stars last weekend.

Ben Olsen, D.C. United's flashy, wunderkind midfielder, made the papers and TV for his winning goal in last Sunday's 2-1 victory over the Columbus Crew in Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference playoffs.Brian West, who learned soccer in Columbia and has seen Olsen's fancy step-overs and related trickery more closely than most, was replaced at RFK Stadium by a Crew substitute in the 63rd minute, tired, unsung, hardly a factor offensively. Funny, only nine days earlier, his heroics had plopped his picture in the paper.

EMMITSBURG -- To Brian Leslie West, a snake was a beautiful creature that didn't deserve its sinister reputation, a belief he maintained even while he was dying from a cobra's bite.Bitten by a king Indian cobra early yesterday and infected with venom he knew would kill him, Mr. West told a friend, "It bit me on the foot . . . We've got to catch the animal and put it in its cage before the paramedics get here, so no one else gets hurt."Five minutes later, the 25-year-old expert and collector of more than 50 snakes went into cardiac arrest and never awoke.

Play is starting this week in America's oldest soccer tournament, the 84th annual U.S. Open Cup, which, in theory, any team, professional or amateur, can win.Baltimore isn't represented, because no amateur club or the third-division Baltimore Bays qualified. The Bays were 1-3 in D3 Pro League qualifiers.But pros in this part of country, who have done well in recent years in the 32-team tournament, are very much alive again. D3's Philadelphia Freedom won a first-round berth, and in second-round play that begins early next month, the second-division A-League's Hershey Wildcats and Richmond Kickers -- both D.C. United affiliates -- enter, too. The Kickers, then a third-division squad, won the 1995 Open.

If nothing else, Centennial's 4-0 victory over Glenelg that clinched the Howard County championship offered a contrast in coaching styles.No. 1 Centennial (10-0-2 overall, 7-0 league), which won its fourth straight county title, is led by Bill Stara, who is not afraid to bark across the field at his players to let them know he's displeased with their performance.No. 13 Glenelg (7-4, 4-3) is led by soft-spoken John Bouman, who rarely castigates a player publicly, and on those occasions when he shows displeasure, his voice never would be mistaken for a bark.
