It was three years ago when the Taneytown Cardinals ended the Littlestown Dodgers' 12-year dynasty as "kings" of the South Penn League.Since then, the Cardinals have ruled the roost in the SPL with two straight titles and, at 32-4 this season, seeming geared to a third one.It only seems fitting that the last team in the Cardinals' way is Littlestown.The Cardinals will host Littlestown at 7 p.m. tomorrow in the opening game of the best-of-five championship series.Both teams are coming off impressive semifinal sweeps over the weekend.

UNTIL YOU buy your first home, the concept of paying property taxes always seems abstract. Then, that first tax bill gives the concept new relevance. Property taxes take a chunk out of any budget. So it was last year with the Soccer Association of Columbia-Howard County. The state's second-largest youth soccer group was focused mainly on getting its new eight-field complex off Centennial Lane, called Northrop Fields at Covenant Park, open when the local tax bill arrived. And the club paid -- about $40,000.

In 32 years, Howard County has seen a lot of changes from physical, social and economic standpoints. But athletically, one of the constants has been the Howard County Men's Soccer League. Founded in 1970 by foreign nationals living in Columbia, the league has become an arena for adult players throughout the metro area - most of them home-grown these days. What started as a group of teams representing Columbia's neighborhoods has blossomed into an umbrella league that offers competition in three divisions, determined by skill level and won-lost records.
