Johns Hopkins junior midfielder Paul Rabil does not rank high among the nation's Division I scoring leaders, but where would the sixth-ranked Blue Jays be without the reigning first-team All-American? Rabil has scored game-winning goals against three top 10 teams. He became the first player in school history to produce two overtime goals in the same season. Those goals beat Princeton on March 3 and Maryland on April 14. Then, Saturday against visiting Navy, Rabil again was the difference.

EMMITSBURG -- Growing up playing the fast-paced sport of Canadian box lacrosse, UMBC's Jeff Ratcliffe is no stranger to scoring goals in bunches. Recently, however, the sophomore has begun to make a habit of it.Entering yesterday's game against host Mount St. Mary's ranked second in the nation in goals per game, Ratcliffe scored a career-high seven, all in the first 42 minutes, in leading the Retrievers to a 14-8 win over the Mountaineers.For the Coquitlam, British Columbia native, who has now scored at least three goals in seven of his team's nine games, this season has seemed just like old times.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - It isn't a mainstream life but it's the right life, the compassionate life. Animals are worth going to prison for, worth risking death for. A life for a life. All lives are equal, Dawn Ratcliffe says.A roach on the kitchen counter? Go, be free. Huge spider in the bathroom? Live long and prosper. Even a gnat feels pain. Oysters, clams, they can't scream, but that doesn't mean they can't feel. Who knows whether clams feel pain? You'd have to be a clam.Ratcliffe sighs. She is a young woman, 24. When she's not working in the recycling center at the University of North Carolina Charlotte, she travels all over to demonstrate for animal rights.

Jeff Ratcliffe's 3,000-mile trip from British Columbia to UMBC two years ago was a journey that will go down as one of the most productive recruiting ventures in the history of the university's lacrosse program.Once Ratcliffe arrived on campus from the small island of Coquitlam, near Vancouver, a quick connection took place between the 20-year-old box lacrosse specialist and Retrievers coach Don Zimmerman."Five minutes was all it took for me to know I wanted this guy to play for me," Zimmerman said.

COLLEGE PARK -- UMBC coach Don Zimmerman was an assistant coach at North Carolina and P.J. Kimener, his 27-year-old midfielder by way of the U.S. Navy, was an infant the last time the Retrievers won a game in the NCAA tournament. Zimmerman, Kimener and everyone associated with UMBC and its men's lacrosse team enjoyed a victory for the ages last night at Byrd Stadium, where the Retrievers handled seventh-seeded Maryland, 13-9. It was UMBC's first NCAA win since 1980, when it took the Division II title for coach Dick Watts.

Last Sunday, UMBC seniors Andy Gallagher and Drew Westervelt were hoping, and praying, that the lords of lacrosse would allow them to play at least one more game together in the NCAA Division I tournament. "It was not a good time, not a good time at all," said Gallagher, still shaking his head in disbelief. "I was just hoping that the committee saw we were playing well, 6-1 in the last seven games. We took Albany, a very good team, to a one-goal game. I was hoping they knew we were playing very good lacrosse, and we could continue to play that way in the tournament."

UMBC goalie Jeremy Blevins needs no motivation when he plays Towson University. His twin brother, Phil, is a reserve midfielder for the Tigers. "I definitely circled this one," Blevins said. "It's always good to go against your brother and come out on top." Blevins, all 5-foot-6 and 130 pounds of him, came up huge in the Retrievers' 11-9 victory last night at UMBC Stadium. The Tigers pumped out five goals in the first 20 minutes, but scored just two over the next 30 and got their only scores in the final 10 when Blevins was working a man down.
