UMBC's Jeremy Blevins is the little goalie who comes up big in big games. He isn't flashy and doesn't make daring dashes down the field. He isn't spectacular in the goal, but solid. But at crunch time, there isn't a better goalie in the country. "It's not his save percentage that wows you; it's the important saves he makes at the most important times that are the most impressive to me," Maryland coach Dave Cottle said. Cottle should know. Blevins had 11 saves in UMBC's 9-8 triple-overtime win over Maryland on March 14. The Terps had a fast-break opportunity on Blevins in the first overtime, and Blevins made the save.

When walking off the field last year after the NCAA championship game at M&T Bank Stadium, Duke goalie Dan Loftus didn't think as much about the loss to Johns Hopkins as he did about his teammates. "I thought about having played with some of the greatest players ever at the highest level," Loftus said. "It was a great experience, and I had no idea we were coming back." Top seed Duke (18-1) is back again, and so is Loftus, as the Blue Devils prepare to meet No. 5 Johns Hopkins (10-5) today in the national semifinals.

BOSTON -- Suddenly you understand why Kevin Kennedy told the media two weeks ago how much he wanted to manage the Boston Red Sox in 1995.It is because the Red Sox could be putting themselves into a position where they will go from doormats to the prime contender in the American League East when the the baseball strike finally ends.Barring unforeseen circumstances, the Red Sox will wind up with Kansas City Royals right-hander Kevin Appier, Montreal Expos closer John Wetteland and Chicago Cubs right fielder Sammy Sosa, the Boston Globe reported yesterday, citing anonymous sources.

At the start of the season, the question was asked: Do veteran goalies Grant Fuhr, Patrick Roy and Ron Hextall still have it?The answer in all three cases appears to be yes, and each is doing it his way.In St. Louis, Fuhr has astounded everyone, except perhaps Blues coach and general manager Mike Keenan, by playing in every game and playing well: 21-20-9 record, 2.88 goals-against average, .903 save percentage.Fuhr has gone from being considered nearly washed up, from being suspended for a week after reporting to training camp 20 pounds overweight, to being the only NHL goalie to start every game this season.

If you think Loyola goalkeeper Jim Brown never displays panic, take a peek at his mother, Jeanne. Uh, if you can find her.At home games, she'll stand outside Curley Field, anxiously peering through the fence before looking away. After a seven-hour drive for a game in Syracuse, N.Y., his father, Jim, watched inside the Carrier Dome while his mother sat outside in the car and listened to the game on the radio, turning the volume down whenever the Greyhounds went on defense."I can't sit still," said Brown's mother, who has yet to watch her son play a full collegiate game.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- When they signed Norm Charlton last December, the Orioles called the move a low-risk investment. Three months later, their manager is growing anxious for a return.In trying to reform the game's tightest bullpen of 1997, Ray Miller hoped to distribute the closer role abandoned by Randy Myers among several relievers.Charlton, a hard-throwing left-hander who has ranked among the game's most intimidating forces during his nine-year career, was to be one. Now, Miller has reason for pause.

The Hart Trophy ballot is here, which means the question must be answered: Which NHL player is the most valuable to his team?Only four names come to mind: Florida Panthers goalie John Vanbiesbrouck, Buffalo Sabres goalie Dominik Hasek, Detroit Red Wings center Sergei Fedorov and Boston Bruins defenseman Ray Bourque.The NHL Hockey Writers Association ballot says vote for three.Vanbiesbrouck, with his .925 save percentage (second in the league) and his 2.53 goals-against average for the expansion Panthers, seems a clear choice, especially if he gets Florida into the playoffs.

At times earlier this season, the Blast allowed too many opponents to run free and get into good scoring positions from the box. At other times, the offense faltered, failing to finish on numerous chances. But one segment of the team's play has been generally consistent and successful - the last line of defense. Starter Sagu and backup Brian Rowland have been an effective duo in goal, a strong signal that the defending Major Indoor Soccer League champions will be a force again if they qualify for the playoffs.

As the shots kept mounting, the Skipjacks were getting more and more nervous.Despite holding an enormous advantage in opportunities -- at one point the shots read 38-8 -- the Jacks were trailing the Capital District Islanders, 5-4, two minutes into the final period last night at the Arena.The baby Isles weren't getting many chances, but they were quite opportunistic when they did, beating Jacks goalie Olaf Kolzig on three of their first five shots.But the patience and persistence of the Jacks paid off late in the game, when the Isles' backup goalie Dave Lorentz faltered, allowing two soft shots to go between his legs as the Jacks backed into a 7-5 victory.
