PORTLAND, Ore. -- Midfielder Tab Ramos kissed away 10 months of frustration yesterday when his 22-yard scoring smash lifted the U.S. soccer team over a major hurdle in World Cup qualifying.The goal gave the United States a 1-0 victory over closest rival Costa Rica and virtually guaranteed the Americans a third straight Cup appearance.Ramos was playing his first game for the United States since tearing a knee ligament last November and had helped set up several failed opportunities for his clearly dominant mates.

Blast defender Emil Dragicevic's best friend is St. Louis Storm offensive star Preki. They are both from Yugoslavia. They played together for two years in St. Louis before Dragicevic joined the Blast.When the Blast is in St. Louis, Preki invites Dragicevic to his home and Dragicevic returns the favor in Baltimore. Many nights, such as Tuesday, they go out to dinner together -- Dragicevic, Preki and their good friend Branko Segota, who is also Preki's teammate.The conversation is usually about home in Yugoslavia, about the civil war there, about family and friends.

After 14 hours of travel Monday, about three hours of practice since, and then 83 minutes of cautious play last night, Ecuador seemed an unlikely winner at Memorial Stadium.But a breakaway goal with about seven minutes remaining, one that the U.S. team unanimously called an off-side play, resulted in a 1-0 exhibition victory for Ecuador.On- or off-side, however, no whistle blew, and 13,629 fans at the first international match in Baltimore in 25 years went almost silent as the ball rolled into the net -- against the grain of play.

If your name was Predrag Radosavljevic, you'd want to be called Preki, too.That's certainly more flattering than what the Blast's Billy Ronson was calling Preki after the St. Louis Storm midfielder allegedly spat on Ronson during a preseason game two weeks ago in Springfield, Mass."

ST. LOUIS -- After winning three of four games at home, the Blast was looking forward to an important showdown with the Wichita Wings tomorrow.Perhaps the Blast was looking too far ahead.

The Blast remains tied for third in the Major Soccer League with the Wings, who also lost last night, but Baltimore missed a chance to move into third all alone.Ted Eck and Branko Segota also scored twice, and George Pastor scored once for St. Louis.
