One corner kick made the difference between McDonogh and the fourth-ranked girls soccer team in the nation yesterday. Jessica Golibart's header in the 56th minute gave Good Counsel a 2-1 victory at McDonogh, The Sun's No. 4 team. Eagles goalkeeper Mariel Wilner punched Danielle Malagari's corner kick off the crossbar, but Golibart was in perfect position to head in the rebound. Golibart's goal gave the Falcons a 2-0 lead before Eagles midfielder Mary Beth Creed, working the give-and-go with Jeanetta McGettigan, nailed a 25-yarder to cut the margin to 2-1 in the 61st minute.

When the No. 1 McDonogh boys soccer team is playing rival St. Paul's and in desperate need of a goal, it knows who to turn to: junior defender Michael DeShields. With the game scoreless in the final minutes of the second overtime on Wednesday, DeShields made his way in front of the Crusaders' goal to find a corner kick sent in by Tunde Akinlosotu. DeShields got a little higher than No. 5 St. Paul's goalie Conor Brown, heading home the game-winner with 3:54 left for a 1-0 win. Sound familiar?

Oakland Mills stopper Chris Miller stood on the sidelines and smiled as the game wound down against No. 11 Wilde Lake.He seemed to like the fact that his shirt had been ripped apart at the left shoulder. A badge of courage. On a team noted for its physical, black-and-blue style, he is one of the more physical players.But Miller never had experienced a game quite as personally satisfying as this one.His No. 4 senior-dominated team finally wore down a sophomore-dominated Wilde Lake (3-2-2, overall, 0-1-1 league)

When the ball was moving up and down the field, No. 6-ranked Glenelg was doing just fine staying on even terms with top-ranked River Hill. It was when the ball was being put back into play - restarts - that the smaller Gladiators simply couldn't match up. Two long throws and a corner kick produced three headers and a 3-0 win for the visiting Hawks at Glenelg yesterday. Sophomore defender Megan Buescher continued to double as a prime offensive weapon. She was in on all three River Hill goals, assisting on two with her long throw strikes and scoring on another off a Shannon Jackson corner kick.

Mike Giuffrida had a goal and two assists, as No. 3 Fallston (8-0, 4-0) stopped visiting North Harford, 4-1, in a bruising boys soccer game on a cool, rainy evening last night.Fallston's win, coupled with C. Milton Wright's 3-0 victory over Bel Air in the afternoon, kept the two unbeatens in the Harford County League on a collision course toward their meeting at Fallston next Thursday. In between Fallston goes to Aberdeen and C. Milton is at Edgewood on Tuesday.North Harford (4-2-1, 2-2), which had not played well in a 4-1 loss to Wright last week, was much more intense in this one and within a goal until the 54th minute.

For the the third time in four years, the UMBC men's soccer team experienced the heart break of having their season end on penalty kicks in the NCAA tournament. The loss Sunday to Connecticut in the second round was especially painful because the Retrievers had twice fought back from deficits to force overtime. The loss also ended one of the most successful seasons in program history. With the game tied 2-2 at the end of the second overtime and temperatures dipping below 29 degrees, the Huskies prevailed 4-2 in the shootout and will play the winner of top-seeded UCLA and Elon on Sunday.

Surrendering the game's first goal on a big rival's home field can cause some teams to panic. For the Century girls soccer team, which was visiting Carroll County foe Westminster on Tuesday, it meant digging in. The Knights' response to the early deficit was two goals 10 minutes apart starting midway in the first half, giving them the necessary push to come away with a 4-2 upset of the No. 11 Owls. Forward Jaci Buteau provided much of the offense, tying the score and adding her second goal and an assist for the Knights (8-2-2, 5-0-1 Carroll)
