After opening the season with a six-game unbeaten streak, the Loyola men's soccer team is now headed the other way. The Greyhounds have dropped their last three games, losing, 3-1, to then-No. 21 UMBC on Sept. 21; 2-1 to Holy Cross last Saturday; and 3-0 to James Madison on Wednesday. Despite the losing skid, though, coach Mark Mettrick said he is not terribly concerned about the team's morale. “UMBC obviously played very well and deserved to get that result,” he said Friday as the team traveled to Hamilton, N.Y., before a game Saturday at Patriot League rival Colgate.

Bodies and words were flying last night. Neither the Blast nor the Wichita Wings wanted to let this one get away. Especially not the Blast.Only last Sunday, Baltimore had played with composure and intensity against this same team. But last Sunday, the Blast lost, 5-4, in double overtime."This time we wanted to make sure there were no excuses," said Blast forward Domenic Mobilio. "This is a great feeling. We turned in a solid performance. We used our speed and caught them on counterattacks.

No one plays defense in the Major Soccer League better than the Blast's Bruce Savage. He can shut out Tatu, the league's leading scorer, with regularity. He can shut down Preki, the second-leading goal scorer, almost at will.But tomorrow, he runs up against his Achilles' heel: San Diego midfielder Branko Segota.At the moment, Segota is everyone's nightmare. One of the hottest players on one of the hottest teams in the MSL, he has six goals and nine assists in his last 15 games. It is power soccer on a power team.

No one has to tell Mark Mettrick how priorities can change.As a single parent and first-year coach of a Division I soccer program, Mettrick has had to shift his primary focus from scoring goals to striving to reach long-term ones.When Mettrick declined the Spirit's offer to play for the club during this National Professional Soccer League season, it wasn't because there was any love lost for the game. The former Blast standout still craves the competition; he just didn't want it to imperil his newest passion -- coaching.

For six British members of the Loyola College men's soccer team, tonight's World Football Challenge at M&T Bank Stadium is a delicious slice of home. "For a lot of us British guys here, we haven't seen a top-quality game live like this in a long time," Tennant McVea, an All-America defender from Belfast, Northern Ireland, said this week. "It's great for me personally, because I miss football back home, I miss getting that atmosphere." The atmosphere will be decidedly international when Chelsea FC and AC Milan, two of the most famous soccer teams in the world, represent Britain and Italy in a unique exhibition match.

If there were such a thing as a quarterback in soccer, Niall Lepper would be taking the snaps at Loyola College. From the sweeper position, Lepper calls the signals, instructs his young teammates where to move and frequently makes long-range passes that turn into scores. He is the backbone of an 11-4-3 Greyhounds team that enters the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament at Rider tomorrow as the top seed and favorite for a return trip to the NCAA tournament, where it reached the round of 16 last season, defeating Maryland along the way. "He really deserves to be an All-American," said Loyola coach Mark Mettrick.

Loyola junior goalkeeper Reb Beatty admits he becomes a different person when he steps onto the soccer field. "Off the field, a lot of people are surprised by my demeanor, because I can be very reserved," Beatty said. "But, on the field, I have always been the same way: very loud, very vocal and very into the game." Mark Mettrick, the second-year coach of the Greyhounds, has a different take on it. "In terms of personality, some of our guys think he is a little mad at times, but that's OK," Mettrick said.

Niall Lepper was back home in Scotland during last Christmas break when he heard the news. Mark Mettrick, the Mount St. Mary's coach who had recruited Lepper to play collegiate soccer in the United States, was leaving Emmitsburg after Lepper's freshman season to become the new soccer coach at Loyola College. "He was the main reason I came to the states in the first place, because he took care of the British boys," said Lepper, a Glasgow native. "The next three years of college life, I thought I would be with Coach Mettrick and Mount St. Mary's, and for that to suddenly end, it was a bombshell.

In about 2.2 seconds, Loyola could have found its replacement for Bill Sento as its men's soccer coach. Mark Mettrick was local, mobile and talented -- a coach who was 45 minutes away at Mount St. Mary's, ready and eager to move on to a bigger program and good enough that his teams put scares into nationally ranked teams this season. But 2.2 seconds turned into two months before Father Harold Ridley, Loyola's president, and Joseph Boylan, the athletic director, finally announced Mettrick's hiring on Tuesday.

After a 1-5-1 start against opponents like Virginia, William and Mary and Georgetown, Mount St. Mary's men's soccer coach Mark Mettrick could have panicked with five freshmen in his starting lineup. And he almost did."I didn't know if that would work in our favor or against us," Mettrick said, looking back to the stretch that preceded a 10-game unbeaten streak. "I'm not going to claim responsibility, this is just what's happened."Apparently, the hard knocks toughened the Mount (10-5-2) for Northeast Conference play, which it has dominated, although its nine-game winning streak ended Wednesday with a 0-0 tie against St. Francis (Pa.)

Mark Mettrick was nothing more than a lean rookie out of soccer-rich Hartwick College when fabled Major Soccer League scoring star Branko Segota tried to intimidate him."What have you done for the game?" screamed Segota at Mettrick after the Baltimore Blast midfielder/defender had kicked him and was called for a foul."What have you done?" shouted Mettrick right back without hesitation."I've won eight championships [11 now]," said Segota, then a midfielder for the San Diego Sockers during the 1988-89 season.

This was the greatest moment of Mark Mettrick's four seasons with the Baltimore Blast, and all he could do was lower his head, smile a little and walk to the bench.Maybe Mettrick needs a little practice on how to react to the lead role.That was the pleasant predicament Mettrick faced last night after he scored three goals for the first time in his Major Soccer League career, leading the Blast to a 9-4 victory over the Dallas Sidekicks at the Baltimore Arena before 10,090.Mettrick was mobbed by his happy teammates 7 minutes, 43 seconds into the fourth quarter when he completed the hat trick with a flip shot from the left side of the penalty box for an 8-3 lead.
