FIGURE ON some kind of soccer being played this coming spring at the new Covenant Park, but just not as much as the new facility's owners were hoping and planning for - initially, anyway. The Soccer Association of Columbia/Howard County reluctantly decided last week to put off sodding most of the eight fields it has under construction there, as well as three at Howard Community College, until winter weather begins to break, we hope, in early March. Reason? No guesswork needed here. The ground is just too saturated for heavy equipment to be used, as has been the case for too many days and even weeks since work began in late May on the complex off Centennial Lane, opposite Centennial Park.

The Crofton Hot Shots, the under-14 girls soccer team that was suspended from a Washington-area league when the players' parents were accused of threatening a referee, are back in the game. Whether they make it onto the field, though, is unclear. The team might have earned a commutation of sorts this week, when the Maryland State Youth Soccer Association's disciplinary committee ordered the Hot Shots be "immediately reinstated," albeit on probation and on the condition that the fans take sportsmanship classes.

The council that governs youth sports in Crofton disbanded yesterday the Crofton Hot Shots, the girls soccer team that was suspended from a Washington-area league after a teen-age referee complained that parents had cursed and threatened her. Doug Cahill, the team's head coach, resigned from the Crofton Athletic Council's board and agreed not to coach soccer during the fall season, said Jeff Shackelford, the organization's president. Although the decision means some girls on the under-14 travel team could be sidelined this fall, Shackelford said the need to break up this group of parents outweighed that concern.
