Here is the fifth installment of a series that checks in with the eight Division III programs in the state to give a glimpse into the past and the future. Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. Monday's visit was with Frostburg State. Tuesday's visit is with Goucher. REVIEW The good: Few teams endured what the Gophers went through after sophomore midfielder Matthew Gabriel was killed in a hit-and-run incident on April 14. The tragedy rocked the players and coaches, but the Gabriel family encouraged the team to continue the season, and the players responded by advancing to the Landmark Conference tournament final.

Glen Burnie (6-2) has had a rough week as the metro area's No. 1 softball team. The Gophers lost, 11-6, to unranked Northeast on Tuesday, and host No. 8 Broadneck put together a five-run rally in the fourth Thursday to beat them, 5-1. Eagles right-hander Emilee Pslueger (4-3) gave up one unearned run in the first inning before settling down. She gave up six hits and two walks and struck out three. Broadneck's Nicole Blackwell hit an RBI double in the five-run fourth-inning rally.

Goucher's season could have ended literally and metaphorically on April 14 when sophomore midfielder Matthew Gabriel died of injuries he suffered during a hit-and-run the day before. But once he had the backing of the Gabriel family, coach Brian Kelly knew the campaign would go on. What he was uncertain of was whether the same could be said about the team. “Immediately following with the Catholic game [on April 17], we were purely playing off of emotion and energy,” he recalled.

It took about five minutes for the Goucher College men's lacrosse team to rid itself of big-stage jitters in Saturday's Landmark Conference final. Once the Gophers settled into their game, however, visiting Catholic never had a chance. Playing before the largest home crowd in school history, they held the Cardinals scoreless for a mid-game stretch of more than 27 minutes, scoring seven straight goals in an 11-4 win. Goucher (14-3) earned an automatic bid to the 23-team NCAA Division III tournament and expects to learn its seeding and first-round opponent late today.

The Glen Burnie volleyball team usually doesn't take long to establish its rhythm.Once the Gophers do establish a rhythm -- like they did in disposing of Old Mill in a three-game, 45-minute span in Wednesday's regional playoff opener -- they usually don't take long to finish an opponent.The pattern had been similar all season to the tune of 45 straight games until the Gophers ran into Broadneck in Friday's Class 4A Region IV finals.Glen Burnie (16-0) finally won the title, 17-19, 15-7, 15-7, 15-3, but not before losing its first game of the season and getting a scare from the Bruins (13-3)

Severna Park coach Tim Dunbar has ignored the preseason litany that swept the league concerning the inexperience of Glen Burnie's volleyball program.Basically, it went like this: "Glen Burnie's gonna get pummeled this year, because no starters return from last year's 18-0 Class 4A state champion volleyball squad, and Coach Juanita Milani is starting three freshmen.""I know they're starting from scratch, but from Juanita, they're learning the game right," said Dunbar, whose Falcons defeated the visiting Gophers, 15-2, 15-5, 16-14, Friday to improve to 8-0 overall, 6-0 against the county.

Glen Burnie's Melani Scharf broke an ankle two days before the state volleyball playoffs in 1988. She anguished on the sidelines as the Gophers bowed to six-time state Class 4A champion Thomas Wootton.Wootton wasn't around Saturday at Catonsville Community College, but Scharf was. The Gophers' senior captain helped her team to its first state title for coach Juanita Murdock-Milani. The Gophers defeated Oxon Hill, 16-14, 15-9, 15-6."I don't know if it was nerves, or what," said Scharf, trying to explain her team's first-game rally from a 13-2 deficit.

In the span of four days, Goucher went from absorbing the disappointment of losing to Landmark Conference rival Scranton to having the last word. After an 8-7 setback to the Royals on Saturday that prevented the Gophers from capturing the regular-season championship and the top seed in the league tournament, they returned the favor by knocking off Scranton, 8-4, in a tournament semifinal Wednesday night. The biggest difference, according to Goucher coach Brian Kelly, was the team's improved effort on defense.

In a nip-and-tuck game that wasn't decided until the final seconds, Goucher dropped a frustrating 8-7 decision to Landmark Conference rival Scranton on Saturday at Gopher Stadium in Towson. The reward for both teams is that they will meet in three days in a league tournament semifinal on Wednesday. The difference is that the Gophers (6-7 overall and 4-2 in the conference) will be the away team as they take to the road against the Royals (10-6, 5-1). Goucher went from potentially capturing its sixth consecutive regular-season title and the top seed to the No. 3 seed, but coach Brian Kelly pointed out that the team still has a chance to extend its season.

Goucher owns a slight 5-4 edge in its series against Landmark Conference rival Scranton and has won the last two meetings. The Gophers have won four consecutive games at home after dropping their first two, while the Royals are 4-3 on the road but have lost two of their last three away from Fitzpatrick Field in Scranton, Pa. Scranton (9-6 overall and 4-1 in the league) have lost two of their last three contests. The defense has been anchored by sophomore goalkeeper Nicholas McKaba, who ranks 16th in Division III with a 6.58 goals-against average and has recorded a .569 save percentage.

Goucher's five-year reign as the Landmark Conference regular-season men's lacrosse champion came to an end when the Gophers fell to visiting Scranton, 8-7, at Gopher Stadium in Towson on Saturday. The loss was doubly damaging for Goucher (6-7 overall, 4-2 Landmark), which went from potentially being the top seed in the conference tournament to finishing as the No. 3 seed. Susquehanna (9-7, 5-1) — which claimed last year's tournament crown and edged Catholic, 7-6, in overtime Saturday — captured the regular-season title for the first time in school history and will have home-field advantage in the tourney.

There was some question as to whether the Goucher men's lacrosse team's home game against Catholic would even be played Thursday, three days after the death of sophomore midfielder Matt Gabriel of Austin, Texas, who was struck by a car. But the Gabriel family encouraged coach Brian Kelly and the team to play, and the host Gophers opened with a 4-0 run and beat the Cardinals, 14-5. The win clinched a playoff berth for the Gophers (6-6, 4-1 Landmark Conference). Catholic fell to 7-6, 2-3. Sam Morgan finished with a game-high four goals for Goucher.

Despite - or perhaps because of - the death of sophomore midfielder Matthew Gabriel on Monday morning, Goucher will play host to Landmark Conference rival Catholic at Gopher Stadium in Towson on Thursday. Coach Brian Kelly said the Gabriel family has encouraged the team to play the game as originally scheduled. "They're so strong in their faith that they believe there's a plan for Matthew and that he is with God now,” Kelly said on Tuesday night. “Their words to me directly were, 'Matthew would have wanted you to continue to play the game that he loved, and he would want his teammates to continue to play the game that he loved and to continue to do what you do, and that's life, to live life because he lived his life to the fullest.' He's always been a selfless human being, and he will be terribly missed physically.

It wasn't the same team he had been watching in practice the past couple weeks, but Glen Burnie coach Terry Bogle sure liked the way his Gophers looked in upsetting No. 4 Annapolis, 92-81, last night.Shawn Mahaney's 4-for-4 three-point shooting in the fourth quarter and point guard William Brown's steady play throughout enabled the Gophers to take their home and season opener. It was the second straight win for the Gophers over the Panthers (1-1) at Glen Burnie."They surprised the heck out of me with all those shaved heads and white head bands," said Bogle.

Desmond Dailey "is like watching time stand still, like a rerun 17 years apart," said Max Powers, who has been Glen Burnie High's public address announcer for 19 years.Powers, a native of Indiana and die-hard Hoosier fan, watched Desmond's father, Tony Dailey, roam the court for the Gophers in the late '70s."Desmond has total awareness on the court just like his dad, and it's an innate trait that can't be coached and learned," said Powers. "Great athletes are born with it."Tony Dailey, a 1977 grad of Glen Burnie, was one of the top players Terry Bogle has coached in his 27 years at Glen Burnie.

After opening the season with four consecutive losses, Goucher has bounced back to .500 with a 5-5 overall record and a 3-1 mark in the Landmark Conference. Even though the Gophers -- who have won the last five regular-season league championships -- are in sole possession of second place in the conference, coach Brian Kelly said the team can't afford to be content about its standing in the race. “It's a pretty balanced conference and if we don't perform in our last two games against Catholic and Scranton, there's a chance we don't make the playoffs,” he said on Monday morning.

Coach Brian Kelly knows he won't know if the problems that No. 8 Washington College exposed in Saturday's 16-7 rout against Goucher will be solved until the Gophers take Beldon Field in Towson on Wednesday against No. 19 Gettysburg. But one area he won't have to fret about is the identity of the starter in the cage. Junior Karl Wiszumerski made a game-high 12 saves against the Shoremen in his first career start. He was credited with zero turnovers and was a plus in the clearing game, which is usually a shaky area for first-time goalkeepers.
