At 6 feet 4, Arundel senior forward Justin Kondos is hard to miss on a soccer field. It's more than just his slender build, though, that warrants notice. He's fast and smooth and displays a poised confidence when he's on the ball, whether it's at his feet or in the air. And he always has company - one defender by his side with others often close by. As one of the county's most dynamic offensive players, Kondos can score, assist or simply draw attention to free up teammates for chances - always doing something that gives defenses fits and helps the Wildcats win. "He's someone you just worry about because he's so versatile," said Broadneck coach Sean Tettemer.

Severn's defense, goalkeeping and the timely scoring of Eddy Shoop have helped the girls soccer team get off to a quick start this season. That same formula helped the No. 4 Admirals win again on Wednesday. Shoop scored late in the game and the Severn defense was strong once again in front of Alayah Hightower in a 1-0 Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference victory over No. 12 Notre Dame Prep. The Admirals won their second straight game and sixth in seven tries.

COLLEGE PARK -- There is a rap, if it can be called that, against Maryland attackman Rob Wurzburger that almost defies belief.Terps coach Dick Edell has heard the rap, and it goes like this: All Rob Wurzburger can do is score goals.That's all? That's not enough? Isn't that the idea, to score goals?When Wurzburger was omitted from All-America mention after scoring a team-high 31 goals as a sophomore two years ago, Edell rated it as one of the major disappointments of his coaching career. Now a senior, Wurzburger still is waiting for that first call as an All-America, even honorable mention.

Before Tuesday's showdown at Carroll County rival Liberty, Century girls soccer coach Sara Figuly rattled off a number of things her No. 5 Knights would have to do to come away with a win. Of utmost importance: playing hard and together for 80 minutes. Century, the two-time defending county champions and last year's Class 2A state winner, had to do just that to fend off a difficult challenge from the Lions. After Liberty tied the game with 16 minutes left in regulation, the Knights stayed poised and persistent - answering with two goals to come away with a 4-2 win that typifies their recent success.

Maggie, my daughter, was deftly dribbling the soccer ball down the sideline. "In the middle, Maggie," I yelled, intending for her to pass the ball in front of the goal for a teammate to slam home. "In the middle."With that, Maggie, my seven-year-old, went racing to the middle of the field, leaving the ball behind like a chunk of radioactive matter. For a moment, all the other players stood clear of the ball, too, as if they were waiting for some brilliant strategy to unfold. When none did, the kids all shook themselves back into frenetic activity and the trouncing of our team resumed.

Gilman's lacrosse team arrived at Weems Whalen Field in Annapolis one hour before yesterday's game against St. Mary's "so we could get the long bus ride off our legs," coach John Tucker said.What the Greyhounds couldn't do, at least for one quarter, was get St. Paul's off their minds.Tucker thought his players were looking ahead to Tuesday's showdown with the No. 1 Crusaders when they fell behind 4-0. But the second-ranked Greyhounds rallied behind the scoring of Michael Allan to defeat No. 4 St. Mary's, 10-7, in a Maryland Scholastic Association Armstrong A Conference game.

During the long, hot summer months, Kenny Cooper studied game films, training routines, game strategy and players' work habits in an attempt "to find that little bit of an edge," he said, that could help the Baltimore Blast win a second Major Soccer League championship.The 11th-year Blast coach said that this season he will substitute more freely -- using a three-line rotation that he hopes will keep his players fresher and prevent injuries.A three-line rotation has forwards and midfielders playing two minutes and sitting four, instead of playing two minutes and sitting two. Most MSL teams use a two-line rotation.

LANDOVER -- Rod Langway had a headache and a beat-up nose last night. He played only one period, but that was all he was needed."I can't see any flaws in our game," said the Washington Capitals defenseman, who was hit in the head Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. "And when that happens, you're going to win games."Washington isn't just winning games, it is embarrassing a lot of supposedly good teams in the NHL.This time, the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins got thrashed, 6-2, before a sellout crowd of 18,130 at the Capital Centre.

Sophomore Ben McCarty has started in the midfield for Towson in the past two games, and coach Shawn Nadelen confirmed that the South Carroll graduate will open Wednesday's Colonial Athletic Association semifinal at No. 17 Drexel with junior midfielders Justin Mabus and Greg Cuccinello. Nadelen said the coaches bumped McCarty up to the first line and moved freshman Ryan Drenner (Westminster) down to the second unit to give the offense more options. McCarty has scored one goal on seven shots in his two starts, while Drenner has scored two goals on four shots.

Don Zimmerman can't imagine where the UMBC offense would be if attackman Matt Gregoire had decided to not return for a fifth year of eligibility. "I don't think I'd want to do that," Zimmerman said with a chuckle on Monday morning. Gregoire, a South River graduate, has broken several records for the Retrievers (7-6, 3-2), who - as the No. 3 seed - will meet second-seeded Binghamton (7-7, 4-1) in the America East semifinals at Stony Brook on Thursday. His 41 goals in 2014 are the most by a UMBC player in a season since Cayle Ratcliffe scored 42 in 2007.

Navy's offense is mired in a bit of a dry spell. After scoring 32 goals in a pair of routs of Patriot League foes Holy Cross on March 1 and Lafayette on March 7, the Midshipmen (3-4 overall and 2-2 in the conference) scored just one goal in the first half of an eventual 14-9 loss to Towson on March 11 and twice in a 13-2 thumping by No. 19 Lehigh on Saturday. The sample size is just two games, which may be why coach Rick Sowell did not seem distressed about the offensive woes.
