Veteran Blast goalkeeper Sagu, a member of three championship teams in his eight seasons playing in Baltimore, announced he would not be returning to the team Monday. After being named the Major Indoor Soccer League's Goalkeeper of the Year for a second straight season, Sagu, 39, had planned to play one more season for the Blast. But the native of Brazil will instead step down now to pursue an assistant college coaching job in Dallas, where he began his professional career in the United States.

UMBC dived into the 2014 campaign without four potential starters, but all four are on pace to rejoin the team for next season. The Retrievers went 8-7 overall and 3-2 in the America East despite losing senior midfielder Conor Finch (Boys' Latin) and freshman defenseman Pat Dignan to torn anterior cruciate ligaments, junior goalkeeper Wes DiRito to foot surgery and senior long-stick midfielder Nathan Klein to a broken neck. Coach Don Zimmerman said all four players are progressing well in their rehabilitation.

Each week, The Sun publishes a Q&A with an area college lacrosse player to get you more acquainted with the player and his/her team. Today's guest is Salisbury senior goalkeeper Johnny Rodriguez, a Gambrills native and Mount St. Joseph graduate who ranks sixth in Division III with a 5.99 goals-against average. Although he pulled you in favor of senior Tim Swinburn in the second quarter of the team's eventual 16-14 win against Stevenson in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament final, coach Jim Berkman said you are still the starting goalkeeper.

Each week, The Baltimore Sun will publish a Q&A with a college lacrosse player or coach to get you more acquainted with the player and his/her team. Today's guest is Maryland junior goalkeeper Niko Amato, who has anchored a defense that is surrendering the fifth-fewest goals per game (6.8) in Division I this season. Amato, who is listed at 5 feet 8 and 185 pounds, made a season-best 12 saves in the Terps ' 12-10 upset of reigning national champion and then-No. 1 Loyola on Feb. 23. How does it feel to be ranked in the top five nationally in both goals-against average (fourth, 6.50)

Frostburg State's season opener against Catholic is 16 days away, and that delayed start may actually benefit the team. That's because the competition to designate a starting goalkeeper is too close to call. Junior Tyler Haines and freshmen Taylor Schmitz, Mack Schwarz and Tom Kraemer have yet to create any room from the others, making it more interesting - and potentially more difficult - for coach Tommy Pearce and his staff. “We've got three freshman goalies that are good,” he said.

Jack Runkel has made the last five starts in the net for No. 8 Loyola, but the sophomore still isn't sure that his play has tightened his grip as the team's goalkeeper of the future. “There's a battle going on between [junior] Mike Bonitatibus and I, and it's still going on now,” said Runkel, who made a career-best 13 saves in Saturday night's 13-5 victory over UMBC. “I may seem like the starter, but in practice, it's both of us. We're both battling it out. I guess the comfort level comes in the game.

The love affair with Josh Gursky continues at Liberty High.It began last winter on the basketball court, continued last spring on the baseball diamond and has intensified this fall on the soccer field.Everybody, it seems, has been captivated by this talented athlete -- on the playing field and in the hallways and classrooms at the school."Josh has a bubbly personality," said Liberty soccer coach Lee Kestler Sr. "It's like the kid doesn't have a care in the world.

Loyola's 3-1 loss to No. 21 UMBC Saturday night was somewhat curious due to the absence of several members of the team, including the Greyhounds' starting goalkeeper. Senior Thurman Van Riper will miss the remainder of the season after suffering serious facial injuries during the team's 2-1 decision against Princeton last Wednesday. "He was in a collision with a forward from Princeton late in the second half, and he got taken to [Maryland] Shock Trauma," coach Mark Mettrick said Monday.

Fifth-seeded Denver had faithfully stuck to a goalie rotation, but it was a change in the cage that helped top-seeded and reigning national champion Duke emerge with a 15-12 win in an NCAA tournament semifinal at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Saturday. After sophomore Luke Aaron allowed a goal to sophomore attackman Wesley Berg that allowed the Pioneers to close the gap to 11-10 just 74 seconds into the fourth quarter, the Blue Devils countered by pulling Aaron for junior Kyle Turri.

By the time Salisbury goalie Ashton Wheatley had finished her junior year, she already had more hardware in her trophy case than most players could hope to collect in a career. Her stellar performance in leading the Sea Gulls to the Division III national championship last May earned tournament Most Valuable Player honors, the perfect complement to her second straight Division III Goalkeeper of the Year award. As they aim to repeat as champs, the No. 2 Sea Gulls are 19-1 heading into Saturday's home game vs. undefeated Augustana (Ill.)

Blast goalkeeper William Vanzela, who sat out Friday night's first game of the Major Indoor Soccer League championship series at Missouri due to a nagging elbow injury, will return to the net when the series continues in Baltimore on Sunday. The defending league champion Blast lost, 15-8, to the Comets and will have to win the second game - set for 5:05 p.m. at Baltimore Arena - to force a deciding, 15-minute mini game in a bid to reclaim its league title. Vanzela, who was named the MISL Goalkeeper of the Year last week, has a 5.57 points-against average and .833 save percentage - both league bests by a wide margin.

Late in the fourth quarter of Mount St. Mary's' eventual 10-4 loss to Georgetown on Wednesday, goalkeeper Chris Klaiber was trying to initiate a clear, but was under heavy duress by a Hoyas player. Junior defenseman Kyle O'Brien took it upon himself to take out the player, which drew a one-minute penalty for slashing but also earned Klaiber's thanks. One might say that Klaiber warranted some assistance after the senior made a game-high 20 saves for the Mountaineers (0-2). Thirteen of those stops occurred in the first half.

The loss of five starters almost guaranteed that UMBC would feature several new faces at key positions in 2014. Two of those faces will belong to freshmen. Coach Don Zimmerman announced Tuesday that redshirt freshman Connor Gordon will start at goalie when the Retrievers open the season at No. 11 Maryland on Saturday at 12 p.m. at Byrd Stadium in College Park. Junior James Maxwell and freshman Ruston Souder were also competing for the right to replace junior Wes DiRito, who will sit this season to recover from foot surgery.

When Princeton's 2012 campaign ended with a 6-5 loss to Virginia in the first round of the NCAA tournament, one of the biggest questions looming was how the program would replace goalkeeper Tyler Fiorito, a four-time All American who was the Ivy League Player of the Year. Matt O'Connor has provided the answer. The freshman has surrendered just 15 goals in two starts and made a game-high 10 saves in the No. 14 Tigers' 11-8 upset of No. 5 Johns Hopkins Friday night. O'Connor anchored a defense that limited the Blue Jays to their lowest output of the season.

Even though he's played soccer since the third grade, Centennial goalkeeper Dan Christine is considered a relative newcomer in Columbia soccer circles.That's because he spent most of those years playing on neighborhood teams instead of at the more competitive traveling-team level. As a result, Christine's road to a high-profile position on one of the top county high school teams has been a winding one."He's only gotten serious about soccer in the last two years, so his name is not a household word," Centennial coach Bill Stara said.

In hindsight, the saves that Eric Schneider made against Ohio State sophomore attackman Carter Brown (Calvert Hall) on a curl around the right post with about two minutes left in the fourth quarter, junior attackman Turner Evans with less than one minute left in the first overtime, and then sophomore midfielder Charlie Schnider from 12 yards away with less than a minute left in the second extra session were momentum-turning plays that played a role...

With four saves in a 1-0 overtime loss to Lafayette on Sept. 25, Lauren Kadet became the all-time leader in saves for the UMBC women's soccer team. The journey there has been just as memorable for the senior goalkeeper. In her first three years, the Retrievers limped their way through losing campaigns, going 2-14-1 in 2010, 0-14-3 in 2011 and 1-11-5 in 2012. This season, however, the team is 5-4-2, and Kadet can now look back at the program's struggles with a smile. "It's pretty meaningful," Kadet said of her 348 saves, which surpassed Nadine Henchcliffe's 339 stops.
