Will hosting the World Cup in 1994 make soccer go in the United States?Nick Kropfelder, who will enter the State of Maryland Athletic Hall of Fame next Monday in a ceremony at Martin's West, has spent his whole life (68 years) in soccer as player, coach and official. You can't know much more about the game than him.Kropfelder is convinced World Cup will come and go and soccer in the United States will remain just about as it is today."I hope World Cup draws a lot of people and I hope we support it well," says Kropfelder, "but in the end it won't have that much effect on the U.S."

The distinguished looking octogenarian watching from the Carrier Dome press box as Johns Hopkins knocked off Syracuse, 18-12, in lacrosse Saturday night had the right perspective.It was Roy Simmons Sr., who came to Syracuse University as a student in 1923 and is still there.Roy Sr. coached the Orange from 1931 to 1970 and since then his son, Roy Jr., has been in charge of the lacrosse department, winning the last three NCAA championships.Roy Sr. has seen it all. Unlike the spoiled members of the crowd of 10,936 who booed as Syracuse lost at home for the first time in 27 games, Roy Sr. understands that nothing lasts forever.

It's a goalkeeper's dream: a one-goal NCAA tournament game. A dream which could prove to be a reality for many goalies over the next three weeks."Goalkeepers can make more of a difference than anyone else on the field," Johns Hopkins coach Tony Seaman said. "Goalies win a lot of games, win a lot of championships. I really don't know if there are any [Maryland's Brian] Dougherty's or [Hopkins' Quint] Kessenich's out there now. If there are, just don't let them play against me."The first round includes three rematches in Loyola-Notre Dame, Duke-Brown, Hofstra-Massachusetts, all of which were decided by one goal.

COLLEGE PARK -- The old man was here at the Final Four last year. Not many outsiders realized it, though.Roy Simmons Sr. was 93 years old. He had lost his wife a year before that. Things were never going to be the same. They had been married 67 years.So the day before the Syracuse lacrosse team left by bus for the University of Maryland and the NCAA Final Four, the old man went to his son, Roy Jr., to ask a favor."Do you think there'd be room on the bus for me?" asked Roy Sr."Of course there's room for you," said the son, who was surprised but pleased that his dad wanted to accompany the team.

No team likes to play Syracuse at the Carrier Dome. The loudspeakers blare high-decibel rock music, the surface is artificial and there is no air-conditioning, not to mention that the Orangemen are virtually unbeatable in the place with an 86-6 record.But one of those losses came Tuesday when the Orangemen were routed, yes routed, 15-7, by Virginia.Now, No. 2 Johns Hopkins (3-0) has to play the No. 1 Orangemen (2-1) in the Dome tomorrow in one of the sports' greatest rivalries. Between them, Syracuse and Johns Hopkins have combined to win 12 of the 24 NCAA Division I men's lacrosse titles.
