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.

The win is the second ever for the Orange (13-1, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) against the top team in the nation and ties Syracuse with the Tar Heels (12-2, 5-1) for first place in the conference. The Orange beat then-No. 1 Florida, 14-13, in double overtime in the semifinals of the 2012 NCAA tournament. "I thought our players performed excellent against the No. 1 team in the country," Syracuse coach Gary Gait said.

He was left without a team when he wasn't offered a contract by the Spirit.

After suffering an 8-7 overtime loss to Capital Athletic Conference newcomer Christopher Newport on Wednesday, Salisbury bounced back with an 11-6 victory over St. Mary's on Saturday. The Sea Gulls (11-1 overall and 4-1 in the league) also welcomed back senior faceoff specialist Chris Biank, who sat out five consecutive games because of a separated shoulder. After playing sparingly and winning just 37.5 percent (3 of 8) of his faceoffs in that loss to the Captains (9-2, 3-1), Biank won 70 percent (14 of 20)

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.

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.

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.

LANDOVER -- When the Washington Capitals traded for Joe Juneau in March 1994, they traded for a superb setup man while hoping they were getting a major goal scorer.For two seasons, Juneau wrestled with the disparity. This season, he came in committed to shooting more. Friday night, his determination produced his first three-goal game as a Capital. Combined with a brilliant 39-save performance by Olie Kolzig, it produced a 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.Defenseman Sergei Gonchar scored Washington's fourth goal.

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.

UMBC's defense picked an inopportune time to play its worst game of the season. The Retrievers surrendered a season-worst 17 goals in a two-goal defeat at High Point on Saturday. It was the biggest offensive display for the Panthers (6-2) in their two-year history as a Division I program. UMBC coach Don Zimmerman said the defense didn't seem to have the ability to match the energy demonstrated by High Point. “We looked tired, lethargic, flat, whatever you want to call it,” he said Monday morning.

The return of Clayton Wainer gave Mount St. Mary's a shot in the arm, but was it temporary? After being shelved for three games with a concussion suffered before a 15-5 loss to Delaware on Feb. 22, the junior midfielder made his customary start Sunday and scored one goal on eight shots in the team's 8-7 loss to Manhattan. “He looked strong,” coach Tom Gravante said of Wainer on Thursday. “He was aggressive. But as the game wore on, so did his body. His body got worn down a bit. We pretty much kept him out of practice throughout the week.

Following the lead of classmates Matt Rambo and Connor Cannizzaro, freshman Tim Rotanz made quite an impression for No. 1 Maryland. In his first game and first start of 2014, the attackman scored two goals on two shots and picked up two ground balls for the Terps (5-0) in Saturday's 11-8 win over Stony Brook. Rotanz, a native of Wading River, N.Y., and the No. 3 college freshman in Inside Lacrosse's Power 100, had sat out the team's first four contests because of an undisclosed injury, but was tabbed to leapfrog junior Kevin Forster on the depth chart and start alongside Rambo and junior Jay Carlson (St. Paul's)

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.

But through the first four games of the current season, the No. 13 Greyhounds (3-1 overall and 1-0 in the Patriot League) are one of the most productive teams in Division I. Thus far, they rank fourth in the country with 15.3 goals per game. Senior Brian Schultz has recorded seven goals and six assists as the third attackman, and the first midfield has consisted of redshirt freshman Brian Sherlock (six goals and four assists)
