The No. 14 Archbishop Spalding boys soccer team put together a 2-0 run to take a one-goal lead in the second half, but visiting top-ranked McDonogh answered with a 2-0 run of its own and won, 3-2, Friday. The Eagles stayed perfect at 11-0, and the Cavaliers fell to 5-5-1. The teams traded goals in the first half. Spalding broke the 1-all halftime deadlock when Nick Asbeck scored on an assist from Hunter Alchin in the 44th minute. McDonogh's Connor Smith scored in the 64th minute, and Noah Wax had the game-winner assisted by Nicolas Brown in the 66th minute.

Every season, the No. 1 McDonogh boys soccer team has a senior primed to take command of the middle of the field. He's expected to provide leadership, be the settling influence and also make game-changing plays. An All-Metro first-team midfielder as a junior, Connor Smith has taken on the lead role with last year's All-Metro Player of the Year George Campbell now at Maryland. So far, so good. In Wednesday's showdown at No. 4 St. Paul's - a rematch of last year's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title game - Smith's dynamic play was the difference as he scored two goals and added an assist to lead the defending champions to a 3-1 win over the Crusaders.

To write it has been an impressive start for the boys and girls soccer teams at McDonogh is a huge understatement. Both teams won their respective conference championships last season -- the boys winning the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference and the girls winning the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference -- and both left last season and started this season as the area's No. 1 teams. Both teams are constant targets -- knock off McDonogh and a season can be made.

The No. 1 McDonogh boys soccer team (19-0-1) was on a roll when a slight opening came about Monday at No. 2 St. Paul's. The Eagles were two games away from completing a perfect regular season when the home team Crusaders (13-3-1) battled them to a 3-3 draw. For McDonogh, the tie and missed opportunity at a perfect season was sheer disappointment. For St. Paul's -- and the other four teams that are competing in the upcoming Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference with McDonogh -- it represented hope.

The McDonogh boys soccer team finds itself in a familiar spot, ranked No. 1 in The Baltimore Sun's Top 15 preseason poll. This season, the defending Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champions have another talented team, led by All-Metro senior midfielder Connor Smith. But there's one big difference: Longtime head coach Steve Nichols moved on to coach his alma mater, Loyola Maryland, leaving assistant Brandon Quaranta in charge of one of the country's most prominent programs.

An early goal by No. 4 Loyola Blakefield's Gavin Barger put top-ranked McDonogh in the unfamiliar position of playing from behind for the first time this season. The Eagles responded by dominating possession and then scoring a goal in each half for a 2-1 victory in a key Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game. Nicolas Brown had a goal and an assist for McDonogh, which has been scored on just three times in nine games this season. "We talked all year how there was going to be difficult situations in this league this year," Eagles coach Brandon Quaranta said.

An established power with six Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championships already won, the McDonogh boys soccer program has had many quality teams and remarkable players. But the 2013 Eagles have a chance to be special. With a 4-0 home win over No. 5 Gilman in Wednesday's MIAA A semifinals, the Eagles improved to 20-0-1 and kept alive their chance to go undefeated for the first time. That decisive comes on Sunday, when McDonogh plays No. 2 St. Paul's - a 3-0 winner over Archbishop Curley in Wednesday's other semifinal - for the conference championship.
