COLLEGE PARK -- Michelle Salmon lies face down on the ground beside a teammate, waiting for the loose-ball drill to begin. The ball is tossed 5 yards ahead, and the battle for control commences.Salmon trails by a few steps at the beginning. She doesn't have a good angle at the ball, either.But she keeps sprinting and poking and eventually comes away with the ball."Tactically, they might be better than me," said Salmon, an Old Mill alumna and a 5-foot-4 sophomore midfielder for the Maryland women's soccer team.

Century's Katie Schwarzmann has become one of the leaders on the soccer team despite being a sophomore. The forward-midfielder scored eight goals and had one assist this season, leading the Knights to a 9-6 record. Schwarzmann likes to push the ball upfield and has been a team leader in soccer, basketball, and lacrosse since she began playing the sports as a freshman. How does it feel to have the respect and admiration of your teammates as a sophomore? Last year I played with a lot of girls I looked up to. And so I learned a lot of the game from them.

SHEFFIELD, England -- The Baltimore Blast will remember a Wednesday night in Sheffield for a long while. Not only because it scored an 8-3 victory yesterday against the Sheffield Wednesday club, one of England's best, but also because of the manner in which it was achieved."

The United States just became very isolated from the rest of the world. It's not because of the war in Iraq or differences over the policy toward Iran. It's because of soccer. In almost every other country on the globe, the next month will be a semi-vacation. Rather than going about their quotidian tasks, people will be huddled around TVs and radios, paying close attention to every game of soccer's quadrennial World Cup - and then spending endless hours afterward analyzing the various nuances of the contests.

The game of soccer played a little trick on the Archbishop Spalding girls team last night, and South River's defense was in on it. There was no other explanation for the No. 4 Cavaliers scoring eight goals in two games - wins over No. 9 Severna Park and always-tough Arundel - over the weekend and then coming up dry after 100 minutes in a scoreless, but exciting tie with the No. 11 Seahawks. "It's soccer and that's the way it goes sometimes," said Spalding coach Bob Dieterle. "We just couldn't put anything in, but you also have to credit their defense in that, too."

Negotiations are under way to bring the 1992 Major Soccer League All-Star Game to Baltimore.During league meetings last February in San Diego, the Blast was told it could not bid for the 1992 game because it had already been promised to Cleveland several years earlier.But now, it has been learned, a deal is in the works that would bring the game here in '92 in exchange for the Blast giving up its three-year agreement to host the College All-Star Game and draft in July."I'm not in a position to comment on any of that," MSL commissioner Earl Foreman said yesterday.

IF YOU'RE anything of an old-line soccer fan, chances are that contrived, summertime promotions such as the 2005 McDonald's McSoccerfest conducted in Howard County this past weekend make you want to grind your teeth. You know, international merchandiser of high-cal fast food to kids of all ages throws around some money and gets its name printed and broadcast for free, riding the wave of popularity that continues in youth soccer. But this kind of event -- last year it was the Got Milk?

Nothing comes close to the "beautiful game" -- soccer played outdoors on a patch of grass measuring 120 yards by 75 yards -- for sheer artistry and enjoyment. But when temperatures drop, the elements grow foul and the game must move indoors, the Thunder Soccer Club has a message for its constituents: No walls! The western Howard County youth club has embraced futsal, the international version of indoor soccer, which -- though little known even to many soccer enthusiasts in this country -- has state, regional and national championships in the United States, as well as its own World Cup. It's a game that contrasts sharply with the style of indoor soccer played by the Baltimore Blast and in other cities of the Major Indoor Soccer League on hockey rinks surfaced with synthetic turf.

The numbers, as staggering as they are, have never been a big thing with former North Carroll boys soccer coach Ed Powelson.He'll discuss them -- only when urged -- and when he does, everything is mostly rounded off to his best estimations. He would much rather talk about the players that have come and gone, his longtime assistant, Charlie Hook, and how the game of soccer has changed in the 34 years he coached at North Carroll."When I first came here, the kids played with steel toes in their shoes.

Thanks to the new open playoff format for girls soccer, Old Mill has gone from a bubble team to a benefactor.In danger of not qualifying for the Class 3A-4A East Region tournament under the old system, the Patriots now are three wins away from being in the final. And among the teams standing in their way are two weaker squads from Baltimore, including today's opponent, the City Knights.Should Old Mill (8-4) get past City, it would meet the Patterson Clippers, with the winner playing either Glen Burnie or North County.

His first name was Frank, he was a Brit, and nobody played harder at the game of soccer than this guy.He once said, "A lot of the Europeans coming here view this as TC paid vacation, and they play that way. But I've got a wife and three little kids and I'm hanging on [in England's first division] by my fingernails. I improve here and earn my keep, and it'll buy me another season."

A prime tenet of sports is wrapped up in the expression: "To each his own."You enjoy lacrosse? Fine, good luck to you, Skip, Chipper and Buffy. And if football is your passion, rush right out to 33rd Street and scream "Colts" every time the public address announcer screams, "Your CFL. . .
