In the aftermath of No. 5 seed Maryland's 1-0 win against No. 12 seed UC-Irvine in a third-round game of the NCAA men's soccer tournament on Sunday night, several Terps were asked about Saturday's quarterfinal meeting with No. 4 seed California. A Cheshire-like grin crossed the face of senior forward Patrick Mullins before he answered. “This is exactly what we wanted,” he said. “That's what we said after the game in our hotel room,” freshman goalkeeper Zack Steffen chimed in. “We wanted them at the end of the year, and now we've got them.” Giving some bulletin-board material to a Golden Bears squad that went 14-4-2 might be a recipe for disaster, but Maryland (15-5-3)

Maryland men's soccer coach Sasho Cirovski has been suspended one game by the Big Ten for actions after the team's loss to Northwestern on Sunday that were in violation of the conference's sportsmanship policy. As part of the penalty, the school has also been fined $10,000. Cirovski will incur the total cost of the fine, according to a team spokeswoman. Cirovski will serve the suspension Wednesday night against Virginia Commonwealth. According to a story in The Diamondback , Maryland's student paper, Cirovski "tried pushing his way toward the officials, his arms flailing and his voice booming" after the 3-2 overtime loss at Northwestern.

COLLEGE PARK -- When he was recruiting Abe Thompson from nearby W.T. Woodson High School in Fairfax, Va., Maryland soccer coach Sasho Cirovski considered the striker a "must have" commodity. Cirovski envisioned Thompson and Taylor Twellman, a third-team All-American, as a productive combination that would make life miserable for opposing defenses. That plan went askew when Twellman turned professional and Sumed Ibrahim, another major offensive threat from the midfield, took a medical redshirt because of a stress fracture in his right foot.

SOCCER MOMS are everywhere. We see them driving the kids to practice, volunteering at concession stands and carrying sports equipment. They keep the uniforms clean, tend to the bruises and always make sure the players arrive on time. That's a lot of work. But why should the kids have all the fun? All work and no play could make a soccer mom very unhappy. That's why Maryland Soccer Moms is making sure that soccer moms, and their nonsoccer-mom friends, no longer have to sit on the sidelines.

When Franklin High School soccer coach Ian Reid plays soccer around the house with his 4-year-old son, Alex, and his wife yells, Reid has flashbacks. "I don't exactly remember when I started playing, but when that happens, I remember the same thing happening to me when I was a boy," said Reid, one of six men who will be inducted into the Maryland Soccer Hall of Fame tomorrow night. "My family moved here when I was 12, and my dad, a Scot, was a huge soccer fan. He loved the game, loved to play and always told great stories."

The Sun reports that Towson University Athletic Director Mike Waddell is recommending the elimination of the baseball and soccer programs ("Baseball, men's soccer target of cuts," Oct. 3). By cutting baseball and soccer, Mr. Waddell would save about $800,000. Clearly, the label "bean counter" should be placed on Mr. Waddell. The label allows Mr. Waddell to ignore logic, courage, tradition, integrity, and wisdom as factors in the decision. I am proud to say that I played soccer for another athletic director at Towson by the name of Dr. Donald "Doc" Minnegan.

Diamonds and the Maryland men's soccer team have a lot in common. As coach Sasho Cirovski explains, his team has been forged by pressure, preparation and expectations. Cirovski doesn't compare Maryland to the jewel for just those three reasons, however, but also because he expects his team's final product to be tough and high-quality. “We've worked hard to make ourselves the biggest bull's-eye in college soccer,” he said Tuesday as his team prepared for today's NCAA College Cup semifinal against Georgetown in Hoover, Ala. “I don't mind putting pressure on our team and our players, because we feel that that makes us better.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland shut down the nation's leading goal scorer for more than 100 minutes of last night's third-round game in the NCAA men's soccer tournament. But that was not long enough. Notre Dame forward Joseph Lapira failed to find the net during 90 minutes of regulation and the majority of two overtimes. Then, in the 107th minute, he broke through and beat the Terps. Lapira scored the game-winner in sudden death when he took a low shot to the right of diving Maryland goalkeeper Chris Seitz, eliminating the Terps, 1-0, in front of 2,769 at Ludwig Field.

For the first seven games of his college soccer career at Maryland, freshman Michael Sauers came off the bench as a reserve, and that suited him just fine. "It's funny, because I wasn't really expecting to play at a big-time school like Maryland,” the Glen Arm native and Archbishop Curley graduate said. “But once they recruited me, I was like, 'Wow, I'm going to take advantage of this.' The first thought that came to mine and my parents' heads were, 'How much playing time am I going to get?

The Maryland men's soccer program will appear in its 13th overall College Cup and eighth in coach Sasho Cirovski's tenure, and as a reward, the team will tangle with Virginia for the third time this season on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. at PPL Park in Chester, Pa. The Atlantic Coast Conference rivals drew to a 3-3 tie in their first meeting on Oct. 11 before the Terps (16-3-5) scored a 1-0 decision over the Cavaliers in the ACC tournament final on Nov. 17. Maryland has faced an opponent three times in one year twice in the last five autumns.

In the aftermath of a loss to Georgetown in the semifinals of last year's NCAA men's soccer tournament -- a game that was settled on penalty kicks -- Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski could have been forgiven for his outburst that the team would return to the College Cup next season. Fortunately for Cirovski, the No. 5-seeded Terps backed up their coach's promise with a 2-1 upset of No. 4 seed California in Saturday's quarterfinals, sending the program to its 13th College Cup and eighth during Cirovski's tenure.

Minutes after watching his No. 12 seed UC Irvine team fall, 1-0, to No. 5 seed Maryland in the third round of the NCAA men's soccer tournament Sunday night at Ludwig Field, coach George Kuntz had one wish, and it had to do with freshman goalkeeper Zack Steffen. “I wish he was a senior, because we may have to see him sometime again,” Kuntz said admiringly. “He's good. Even the DVDs we have on that guy don't give him credit. Those saves, you saw with your own eyes. Not only those things, but just the simple things.
