Mount St. Joseph senior midfielder Geaton Caltabiano constantly spends extra time working on free kicks. Friday's game against Archbishop Curley is precisely why. In the 55th minute of the No. 3 Gaels' Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference quarterfinal, Caltabiano was able to bend in a free kick from 20 yards - over the Friars' four-man wall, out of reach of goalie Taylor Bechtel - to send Mount St. Joseph to the semifinals with...

Laurel Park $100,000 Sprint more likely for Ben's Cat Owner-trainer King Leatherbury said Saturday that he is leaning toward entering Ben's Cat in the $100,000 Sprint at next Saturday's Jim McKay Maryland Million but won't make a decision until he handicaps both the Sprint and $125,000 Turf. Ben's Cat, who could become the first horse to win four Maryland Million races, is pre-entered in both races. Leatherbury, 81, says that if his decision is clear-cut, he will not cross-enter the horse, as he did last year.

The top-ranked McDonogh girls soccer team visited primary rival and No. 3 Archbishop Spalding on Monday, and they had a new role. It all changed last season when the Eagles were finally able to beat Spalding with an overtime win in the Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title game, ending the Cavaliers' run of consecutive crowns. As the new team to beat this fall, McDonogh was able to pass a stern test with an efficient 2-0 win over the Cavaliers. All-Metro Player of the Year Ashley Spivey scored on a blistering free kick from 25 yards out seven minutes into play, and All-Metro forward Taylor Cummings added an insurance goal late as the Eagles improved to 6-1 overall and 2-0 in the IAAM.

The only thing that came easy for the No. 8 Calvert Hall soccer team in its 3-2 season-opening win at rival Archbishop Curley Friday was the game-winning goal. Sophomore forward Ben Alexander was right where he needed to be on the goal line, ready to tap it home. The score, which came with 15:30 left and answered a tying goal from the No. 9 Friars just two minutes earlier, was a deserved reward for all the hard work that preceded it. The Cardinals earned a free kick just outside the penalty area that Brady O'Connor sent to the middle.

The Blast took a giant step toward clinching a Major Indoor Soccer League division title Saturday night at 1st Mariner Arena . Before an announced 6,473, Baltimore staved off the second-place team in the East, the Rochester Lancers, 8-7, and now needs only one victory with seven games left in the regular season. Even if Rochester wins out, the Blast (13-4) could go 1-6 and still take the top seed for the playoffs by virtue of a four-game season sweep of the Lancers. The Blast can nail down their No. 1 seeding Wednesday by beating the last-place Norfolk SharX, a team it has mostly dominated.

For the second time this season, No. 8 Perry Hall and Hereford got together to play a boys soccer game and couldn't get anything decided. In Wednesday's Baltimore County championship game, the stakes were higher but the result - a 2-2 tie - was the same, as the teams were forced to share the county title. Hereford junior midfielder Alex Feeney scored on a free kick with 5:20 left in regulation and then both goalkeepers - Perry Hall's Cody Phillips and the Bulls' Dan Staab - each made an impressive reaction save in 20 minutes of extra time to keep the game tied.

With his team trailing No. 2 McDonogh by a goal in the final two minutes of regulation, No. 3 Archbishop Curley's Mike Sauers hit a masterful free kick into the top corner of the goal to send the game into overtime. The two teams then traded chances in the two extra periods before settling for a 1-1 tie in an important Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference matchup in Owings Mills. The teams are jockeying with top-ranked Loyola and No. 5 Gilman for home field advantage in the playoffs, so the stakes have become increasingly higher heading into the final stretch of the season.

Just 14 minutes into Thursday's Class 3A state championship at UMBC Stadium, No. 9 Reservoir was caught off guard when Urbana's Austin Thames quickly scored off a direct kick before the Gators could set their wall of defenders. Reservoir, however, entered the game battle-tested, having avenged regular-season losses to Howard County foes Centennial and River Hill in the playoffs, so there was no panic after the early goal. The Gators eventually scored twice to take the lead, but Urbana answered with less than seven minutes remaining in regulation to send the game into overtime.

Let me be clear that I love soccer, and have for a long time. It was the 1966 World Cup final, England's overtime victory over Germany, that turned a serious flirtation into a committed relationship. I didn't miss World Cup finals after that, even when it meant buying a ticket to a smoky auditorium for a blurry closed-circuit broadcast. With the World Cup final approaching this weekend, I should be at the heights of ecstasy. But right now I'm feeling a bit broken-hearted. Instead of succumbing to the allure of David Villa and Wesley Sneijder as I watch this year's tournament, I find myself thinking more and more about J. P. Hayes.

FOXBORO, Mass. - Sweden came into the Women's World Cup considered a title threat but was run off the field by the United States in the first half of its opening match. Aside from those 45 minutes, when the Swedes fell behind 2-0 in a 3-1 loss, they have lived up to expectations. By beating 1999 bronze medalist Brazil, 2-1, in a quarterfinal yesterday at Gillette Stadium, the Swedes moved into the semifinals against the winner of today's China-Canada match in Portland, Ore.

THESSALONIKI, Greece - The United States swept into the semifinals of the Olympic women's soccer tournament last night with a convincing 2-1 victory over Japan at Kaftanzoglio Stadium. Less convincing were the explanations given for the legitimate, but controversial, winning goal by Abby Wambach in the 59th minute. It came off a free kick by Mia Hamm, who sent the ball in from the left flank. The Japanese defenders moved forward on the kick to try to catch the Americans offside, and Kristine Lilly, Julie Foudy and Wambach all were caught by the maneuver.
