Diamonds and the Maryland men's soccer team have a lot in common. As coach Sasho Cirovski explains, his team has been forged by pressure, preparation and expectations. Cirovski doesn't compare Maryland to the jewel for just those three reasons, however, but also because he expects his team's final product to be tough and high-quality. “We've worked hard to make ourselves the biggest bull's-eye in college soccer,” he said Tuesday as his team prepared for today's NCAA College Cup semifinal against Georgetown in Hoover, Ala. “I don't mind putting pressure on our team and our players, because we feel that that makes us better.

COLLEGE PARK - There are no commemorative T-shirts worn at practice to remind Sasho Cirovski and his Maryland men's soccer team of their controversial loss to Notre Dame in the final of last year's College Cup.

As the Indiana players hooted and hollered at midfield, celebrating a 1-0 victory over Georgetown on Sunday for their eighth NCAA men's soccer championship, the Hoyas began to come to terms with the end of a wondrous season. Goalkeeper Tomas Gomez fell face-first, not a soul within 30 yards. Defender Tommy Muller sat on the field, running through his mind the last-minute header that had struck the intersection of the crossbar and right post. Brian Wiese, who had guided a middling program to a record number of victories and its first College Cup appearance, consoled his players, one by one, from sideline to penalty area.

Amid the old Terps jerseys and the "Daddy's Girls" picture frame and the College Cup posters in Sasho Cirovski's office sit the Maryland soccer coach's two bookcases. They're packed, he says, with "every coaching book you can imagine. " One book in particular stands out: the autobiography of Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson, who before his 2013 retirement won 13 English Premier League titles, 19 domestic cups and two Champions League crowns. He is, in short, probably soccer's most successful manager of all time - and by far its most legendary.

Last August, as is their custom, Loyola's Gigi Mangione and her father spent an afternoon in their backyard in Parkville, kicking the ball and talking soccer. They do it every summer - a casual bonding between a dad, who once played for the Blast, and his daughter, a former high school All-American and one of the area's brightest stars. "We practice shooting and trapping, and just chat about stuff," said Nick Mangione, 54, a midfielder whose four years with the Blast produced 53 goals and the MISL championship in 1984.

In the aftermath of a loss to Georgetown in the semifinals of last year's NCAA men's soccer tournament -- a game that was settled on penalty kicks -- Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski could have been forgiven for his outburst that the team would return to the College Cup next season. Fortunately for Cirovski, the No. 5-seeded Terps backed up their coach's promise with a 2-1 upset of No. 4 seed California in Saturday's quarterfinals, sending the program to its 13th College Cup and eighth during Cirovski's tenure.

From an outsider's perspective, the top-ranked University of Maryland men's soccer team has a lot to prove today when it takes on Southern Methodist in the College Cup NCAA semifinals in Cary, N.C. Three straight times before this season, the Terps have made it this far, and three straight times, their season has ended in disappointment. The final - a place Maryland hasn't been since 1968 - has remained just out of reach, which would seem to place an even heavier burden on this year's team.

Ian Rodway has a new license to travel. The senior on the Maryland men's soccer team is losing part of his defensive tag and starting to attack more. "It's fun," said the midfielder and defender of the new role he gained through graduation losses in the midfield. "I just need to improve my fitness so I can get upfield quicker." The 5-foot-9, 165-pound Wilde Lake High graduate has already registered two assists and taken two shots in the Terps' 2-0 start this season. That's charging out of the gate for a player who had four goals and four assists in the first three years of his career.

The Maryland men's soccer program will appear in its 13th overall College Cup and eighth in coach Sasho Cirovski's tenure, and as a reward, the team will tangle with Virginia for the third time this season on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. at PPL Park in Chester, Pa. The Atlantic Coast Conference rivals drew to a 3-3 tie in their first meeting on Oct. 11 before the Terps (16-3-5) scored a 1-0 decision over the Cavaliers in the ACC tournament final on Nov. 17. Maryland has faced an opponent three times in one year twice in the last five autumns.

Freshman Michael Sauers (Archbishop Curley) scored the winning goal in the 86th minute to give No. 5 seed Maryland a 2-1 victory at No. 4 seed California on Saturday in the quarterfinals of the NCAA men's soccer championship. Sauers found the back of the net from 25 yards after Mikias Eticha passed him the ball in space for Maryland's (16-3-5) 10th consecutive victory. The win avenges a September loss to the Bears. Junior Alex Shinsky also scored for the Terps, who advance to their 13th College Cup. “Our goal in the beginning of the year was to return to the College Cup," coach Sasho Cirovski said.

For the second time in three years, the UMBC men's soccer team has won the America East title and will represent the conference in the NCAA men's soccer College Cup. The second-seeded Retrievers and fifth-seeded New Hampshire Wildcats played to a 0-0 double-overtime draw Saturday night, but host UMBC advanced to the championships by prevailing, 4-2, in penalty kicks. UMBC junior goalkeeper Phil Saunders (Perry Hall) was named the championship's Most Outstanding Player. Saunders made five saves, including a point-blank stop in the second overtime, and stopped a pair of UNH attempts in the penalty-kick shootout.

When he was 13 years old, Sunny Jane decided to leave his home country of Lesotho and move to the United States to advance his soccer career. Last Sunday, Jane took another step along that path as he contributed two goals and an assist as the second-seeded Terps cruised to a 5-1 victory over Coastal Carolina in the NCAA tournament. The win secured a trip to the quarterfinals and a rematch against Louisville on Saturday at 5 p.m. in College Park. The matchup with the Cardinals is particularly interesting for Jane because his first trip to the College Cup hinges on beating a college from Kentucky, the state in which he settled after coming to the country.
