Before last season, the Blast front office was scrambling to find a starting goalkeeper. Veteran star Sagu decided to retire earlier than planned and backup Akira Fitzgerald left to pursue a career in outdoor soccer. To the rescue came William Vanzela, a native of Brazil who was in Italy establishing himself as one of the top goalkeepers in futsal, another indoor game, played on a smaller field without the turf and sideboards. After helping the Blast win the Major Indoor Soccer League title last year, he has emerged as the league's top goalie in his second season as the team is one win away from a repeat trip to the championship series.

If the Washington Capitals' meeting with the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night truly represented a measuring stick of their progress under coach Dale Hunter, as players billed it in the hours leading up to the game, then they came up far short. Washington fell, 5-1, at Verizon Center in a game in which its offense fell dormant for stretches, the defensive zone coverage eroded and the goaltending allowed soft goals. The Capitals are 3-4 under Hunter and have lost six of their past nine.

Rookie Brian Phipps turned in an improbable performance between the pipes in the first half of the Chesapeake Bayhawks' game against Boston last Saturday. A Maryland and Severn graduate, Phipps stopped 11 shots, holding the Cannons to a lone goal in the first quarter and propelling his team to a 7-6 halftime advantage. Unfortunately for Phipps, Boston responded with an equally unlikely second-half surge. The Cannons reeled off 11 goals in the game's final 28 minutes while holding the Bayhawks to just two. Phipps finished the day with 16 saves, a new personal best and the most stops by a Chesapeake netminder this year.

The Washington Capitals signed unrestricted free-agent goaltender Dany Sabourin, 29, to a one-year contract. Sabourin has played 57 games for the Calgary Flames, Pittsburgh Penguins and Vancouver Canucks. He spent 2009-10 with the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League, going 28-27-0 with a 2.67 goals-against average, a .915 save percentage and three shutouts. José Theodore, the Capitals' starter for much of 2009-10, is a free agent and is not expected to be retained. That leaves Washington with two 22-year-olds, Semyon Varlamov and Michal Neuvirth, likely to get most of the starts.

Jon Selfridge had visions of glory while sleeping Tuesday night. "I dreamed I'd come up big right at the end," the Glenelg junior goalie said. "Then I'd throw both arms in the air, look into the cheering crowd, and they'd be screaming that we're the new state champs." Selfridge made his dream a reality yesterday at UMBC Stadium, making 10 of his 15 saves in the fourth quarter of a 6-3 victory over 11th-ranked Fallston (18-2) in the Class 3A-2A final. Coach Josh Hatmaker also credited defenders Andy Curley, Nick Lawson, Mike McCabe and Ryan Dougherty for "taking away the skip-shot Fallston does so well."

For St. Paul's Adam Johnston, it seemed to take forever for the Crusaders to score on McDonogh's 6-foot, 205-pound Tyler Fiorito. "We came out shooting high, and he made some great saves," said Johnston, referring to Fiorito's 10 stops during a scoreless first quarter. "So then, we tried shooting from far out, low and away. In the end, finally, there were some unsettled plays." One of those led to Johnston scoring his game-winning second goal with 4:23 to play off a pass from Cliff Larkin, lifting the visiting, top-ranked Crusaders to their sixth straight win, 3-2, over last year's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference runners-up.
