TACOMA, Wash. -- The book on the Baltimore Blast coming to the Tacoma Dome has been remarkably consistent of late: Four visits stretching over parts of the past two seasons had resulted in four one-goal losses -- three in overtime.Baltimore would have none of that last night before 5,942 fans, as the Blast rallied to post a 6-4 victory -- thanks to two goals each by Rusty Troy, Joe Koziol and rookie Kris Kelderman. Thus, the Blast broke a three-game losing streak and evened its record at 8-8.Down by 3-2 at halftime, Baltimore limited Tacoma to three shots in the third quarter to build a 4-3 lead.

For most of Saturday night's Class 2A state final at UMBC, fourth-ranked Fallston appeared to have all of the answers for the high-powered offense of No. 2 Marriotts Ridge. The Mustangs, however, kept pressing and finally broke through when Kwadwo Owusu-Boiatey headed in a corner kick from Kyle Mercer with 6:07 left in the first overtime to give Marriotts Ridge a 1-0 victory. It was the Mustangs' first state title and their 16th consecutive victory. The Mustangs have only given up five goals over that stretch.

In her first season as a starter, the junior goalkeeper led the Huskies to a 2-0 upset win over then-No. 3 John Carroll in Friday's season opener. In her second season on varsity, Ehly dominated the penalty area to keep the persistent Patriots frustrated for all 80 minutes, finishing with 17 saves. Patterson Mill coach Mike Parker said Ehly was particularly strong in the opening five minutes when the Patriots dominated play. She also was smart and aggressive when leaving her goal line to snare a number of crosses.

Last season, Poly's boys soccer team ended Patterson's run of four straight Baltimore city championships by defeating the Clippers twice. Yesterday afternoon, Patterson took the title back when junior forward Bobby Oxendine scored his second goal of the game in the 80th minute to lift the Clippers to a 3-2 home victory, its second one-goal win over Poly this season. Oxendine scored the game-winner after he received a 20-yard feed from sophomore midfielder Josh Robinson on a counterattack and broke in alone on Poly junior goalkeeper Brian Cothern.

After the opening minutes of yesterday's Class 1A state title game against Pocomoke, Sparrows Point boys soccer coach George Bischoff began to get the feeling that his Pointers matched up well with the defending champions. He partly attributed that to the wide field at UMBC Stadium that helped Sparrows Point's ball-handlers control the tempo for much of the game and create chances with some deft passing around the Warriors' penalty area. Although the Pointers' confidence continued to build as the match wore on, they could not find the winning goal in a 1-1, double-overtime tie. The draw gave Pocomoke its second straight state championship and gave Sparrows Point its first state title in 31 years.

An early statement was made last night at Old Mill, and it took visiting Glen Burnie only a few minutes worth of offense and a nerve-racking last stand on defense to make it. Striker Sean Ajifowobaje provided the tying goal in the 69th minute, defender Aaron Wright supplied a lead in the 73rd minute and goalkeeper Andrew Evans helped ensure the Gophers' soccer team would leave Millersville with a surprising 2-1 win over the defending county champion Old...

Towson and Hereford played creative, wide-open soccer in Tuesday night's Class 3A North Regional final, and in the end, the host Bulls had a bit more scoring punch to pull out the 3-2 victory. Evan Anderson and David Endres each scored first-half goals, and Eric Endres scored an early second-half goal for Hereford. The Bulls play Atholton, which upset No. 12 Mount Hebron, in the state semifinals at CCBC-Essex on Saturday. Hereford (11-2-1) last reached the state semifinals in 2005, and is looking for its first state title since 1989, the last of three consecutive championships.

Everything appeared to have fallen into place for No. 10 Calvert Hall in its Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference soccer semifinal Thursday night against No. 3 Mount St. Joseph. The Cardinals were playing under the lights on their campus for the first time in 164 years and had the lead in the game's final minute. Just as the student body was about to storm the field, the Gaels' Jalen Robinson scored with 15 seconds left to send the game to overtime. After neither team scored, Mount St. Joseph won the penalty-kick shootout, 3-2, to advance to the championship against top-ranked McDonogh on Monday at Johns Hopkins.

In the closing minutes of the first half against host Towson on Tuesday, No. 14 Loch Raven's Seth Moses collected a loose ball just outside the penalty area with his back to the goal, pushed it slightly into space and then fired a shot just under the crossbar. With a two-goal lead, Moses then moved to sweeper and made several crucial clearances as the Raiders held on for a 3-2 victory. Moses' versatility could be a huge factor as Loch Raven tries to advance to a state championship game for the sixth time in seven years.

The only blemish on top-ranked McDonogh's record in the past two years is a loss to No. 4 Perry Hall early last season. The teams met again Saturday in the McDonogh Challenge, and this time, the Eagles showed their mettle by scoring two second-half goals for a hard-fought 2-0 victory in a steady rain at Loyola College. McDonogh is 6-0, having beaten two nationally ranked teams and two teams ranked in the top five of The Baltimore Sun poll. "I think Perry Hall is a good team," McDonogh coach Steve Nichols said.

It was a moment Jake Pace had dreamed about his entire life. In the first overtime of last year's Class 2A state championship game against Loch Raven, the River Hill midfielder knew he had positioned himself perfectly just inside the penalty area as teammate Tony Riso lined up a corner kick. As the ball curled toward the near post, Pace timed his run through the box to meet it. The Loch Raven defenders tried to clog the penalty area, but they were left helpless as Pace jumped and fiercely headed the ball into the bottom corner of the net. Pace is one of several players in the metro area who has a reputation for making a difference when the game is on the line.

The NCAA men's soccer tournament first-round matchup between Liberty and Loyola was delayed briefly yesterday because the Flames couldn't find their jerseys. When the game started, Liberty, like most of the Greyhounds' opponents this season, couldn't find the back of the net as host Loyola prevailed, 2-0, at Diane Geppi-Aikens Field. It was the Greyhounds' 16th shutout in 22 games this season, and they remain No. 1 in the nation in team shutout percentage. Loyola coach Mark Mettrick reminded his team during the week about the "giant-killers" in every NCAA tournament and that there is no reason the Greyhounds couldn't adopt that role.
