Alexa Quaranta was recruited by the UMBC women's soccer team as a back. So seeing her play the forward position sometimes causes a double take. And Quaranta, a sophomore, is still surprised at the position switch. “I started off as a defender,” the Baltimore native and Perry Hall graduate said. “I was not expecting to be pushed forward, but you've just got to do whatever your team needs you to do. It's exciting to see us winning games and just to be scoring.” Scoring has rapidly become Quaranta's forte.

After a fall in which the UMBC men's soccer team won its first America East Conference regular-season title since 2003 and its third conference tournament championship in the past four years, the program seemed poised to make a serious run in the postseason. But the No. 16-seed Retrievers (16-1-3) were bounced from the second round of the NCAA tournament as Connecticut prevailed, 4-2, in a penalty-kick shootout Sunday night at Retriever Soccer Park in Catonsville. The sudden exit, after a 2-2 tie in regulation, is still difficult for UMBC to absorb.

Having outlasted No. 5 seed Albany, 2-1, in double overtime in Wednesday night's America East tournament semifinal at Retriever Soccer Park in Catonsville, the top-seeded UMBC men's soccer team can take aim at its third tournament championship in the past four years. But even if the Retrievers fall short in Saturday night's title game against No. 3 seed Hartford at 7 p.m. at Retriever Soccer Park, they may have already cemented a spot in the NCAA tournament's field of 64. UMBC - the America East regular-season champion - is 15-1-2, is ranked sixth in the most recent National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll, and boasts the No. 6 RPI in Division I. That resume might be enough for the selection committee to invite the team to the NCAA tournament, but coach Pete Caringi Jr. tried to tap the brakes on that train of thought.

Tuesday night's men's soccer game between UMBC and Delaware at Retriever Soccer Park could be an entertaining show for fans -- and an exhaustive exercise for the goalkeepers. The two teams are ranked in the top four in Division I in goals per game this season. The Blue Hens, who are 7-1-0 and got votes in the most recent Continental Tire/National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll, are tied for first in the country with a 2.9 goal-per-game average, while the No. 11 Retrievers (9-0-0)

As the No. 1 seed in the America East tournament, the UMBC women's soccer team enjoys the luxury of getting a first-round bye and waiting until Sunday to meet either No. 3 seed Hartford (10-5-3 overall and 5-3-0 in the conference) or No. 6 seed Vermont (6-8-3, 3-3-2) in a semifinal at Retriever Soccer Park in Catonsville. The layoff is one that coach Leslie Wray said the team is looking forward to. “I feel like it's well-needed. We need to rest,” she said Monday. “We don't have a very deep bench, and we're asking a lot of all the players to put in a lot of minutes, hard minutes and stressful minutes.

As the No. 1 seed in the America East tournament, the UMBC women's soccer team has worked hard to reap the rewards of that status, capturing the program's first regular-season conference title, earning home-field advantage in the semifinals and final, and enjoying a first-round bye in the quarterfinals. At the same time, however, the expectation is that the Retrievers (11-5-2 overall and 6-2-0 in the league) are the favorites to take home their first tournament championship. And history would appear to be on their side.

Sunday's double-overtime loss to America East foe UMass Lowell did not help, but ultimately, it did not hurt the UMBC women's soccer team, either. That's because Vermont lost, 2-0, to Hartford, which paved the way for the Retrievers to clinch a spot in the six-team America East tournament, the program's first postseason berth since 2005. UMBC (9-5-2, 4-2) is tied with Stony Brook (9-5-1, 4-2) for third place in the conference with 12 points and can finish no worse than sixth.
