Devin Barclay likes the fit, and why not? The Annapolis native, 18, now gets to play for Major League Soccer's defending champion San Jose Earthquakes, and the surfing in California speaks for itself. Kyle Beckerman, 19, back from a broken leg , is healthy and smiling these days, too. In swapping the Miami beaches for the mountains near Denver, the Arundel High grad says he's looking forward to a big snowstorm and a fresh start with the Colorado Rapids. The recent dissolution of Barclay's Tampa Bay Mutiny and Beckerman's Miami Fusion by Major League Soccer has the two teen-agers on the move again, with the 2002 season starting March 28. Soccer has provided the two players with a surplus of global experiences, and they have recently completed two more.

Even minus three starters, DeMatha of Hyattsville, the state's No. 1-ranked team, was too much for a youthful Old Mill squad last night.The metro area's 11th-ranked Patriots (6-1) enjoyed early leads, the last 18-16, but the Stags won the last six bouts for a 37-18 decision. Old Mill's four victories came on decisions by Eric Hill (103, 14-5), county champ Rich Sampson (135, 16-4), a pin by No. 5 Gary Serago (140, 10-3) and a DeMatha forfeit at 119."Basically, we just wanted to let it all hang out. We wanted to give it everything we had, maybe hang with them, but we knew we had nothing to lose," said Sampson, a junior.

I pulled a five-and-dive last night in Bowie to get to hockey, but no one at Camden Yards had the opportunity to leave early last night. If you were there, or up late watching, you probably could use a pick-me-up. That the Coffee Companion, where we recap the local sports headlines every weekday, exists for you is just a bonus. - The Orioles lost, 8-7, in 13 innings Thursday against Cleveland, who pushed two across in the final frame against Troy Patton. Earlier in the game, Preston Guilmet, a former Indian, threw 2 1/3 perfect innings , and Manny Machado left with groin stiffness . - In Bowie, Eduardo Rodriguez looked strong , if not a little tired, in his return from the DL Thursday night.

Kyle Beckerman, one of the top American youth players, has picked a pro career in the United States rather than play in college or overseas. The 18-year-old attacking midfielder from Crofton and Arundel High has signed a 4 1/2 -year contract with Major League Soccer that, with performance bonuses, could pay as much as $40,000 a year. Beckerman has been allocated to Project 40, a league program for young players that includes a team in the A-League, and will be selected by an MLS team later this week in a lottery draft.
