Less than two hours before Wednesday's game, manager Dave Trembley summoned the Orioles' 13 position players into his office for a quick talk. Fed up with his team's recent play, Trembley gave a brief and stern lecture that focused on playing hard and smart, but most importantly, playing team baseball. The Orioles then went out and proved why such a talk was needed. Finding different ways to squander scoring chances and getting another uneven start from rookie Jason Berken, the Orioles were beaten, 6-3, by the Oakland Athletics in front of an announced 19,128 Wednesday at Camden Yards.

Like professional athletes who get ready for their respective seasons in training camp, weekend golfers prep their games in the offseason. Some work out feverishly doing golf-specific exercises. Others take lessons to hone their swings. And more than a few simply go out and take their whacks on the driving range. Jim Kardash, who has owned and operated the Arundel Golf Park in Glen Burnie since 2004, said golfers run the gamut when it comes to conditioning their bodies - and their minds - for a game that takes its toll physically and mentally.

Throughout the early part of the season, Centennial soccer coach Mike Senisi has grown increasingly weary about his team's inability to finish its scoring chances. Yesterday, the Eagles didn't give him a chance to fret. The No. 5 Eagles converted their first three scoring opportunities en route to a dominating 5-1 victory over No. 11 Fallston yesterday at Centennial. Sophomore midfielder Hayley Siegel had two goals and two assists, senior midfielder Beth Foley scored twice, and sophomore forward Mandy Paizs contributed a goal and two assists, as Centennial (2-0-1)

The Westminster girls soccer team didn't generate much offense last night against visiting North Carroll. But the defense proved tough enough to give the Owls another shutout victory. Samantha Stone scored midway through the first half, and the Westminster defense made it stand up, turning away several scoring chances to post its fifth shutout with a 1-0 win. Westminster coach Terry Molloy says his team is better suited to playing a defensive style, working hard in its own end and counter-attacking.

ST. LOUIS - The Blast ran into a buzz saw last night. The St. Louis Steamers didn't miss a beat against the Blast, working hard the entire game and combining with some missed Blast scoring chances in the first half to defeat the Blast, 6-3. "They worked hard again," said Blast coach Tim Wittman, referring to an earlier meeting with the Steamers. "You just have to keep on playing and try and get out of the hole." The Blast (6-9) tried to get back into the game in the fourth quarter when it pulled goalie Sagu with 5:33 remaining, trailing 6-2. With a man advantage, Giuliano Celenza beat goalie Brett Phillips to cut the lead to 6-3. Celeneza had two scoring chances minutes later, but Phillips managed to get a hand on both shots.

Fallston last night showed host Liberty that scoring without the ball can be a rather difficult task.The No. 15 Cougars kept possession for much of the second half, and got goals from Nicole McNeill, Fran Amasia and Jen Schuerholz during a nine-minute stretch while blanking No. 14 Liberty after the break for a 9-6 victory.The game was tied 6-6 at halftime, but Fallston coach Gina Hormes told the Cougars to work harder on the mechanics of passing and catching. Even though Fallston (4-0) scored six times in the opening half, the Cougars were inconsistent.

Fallston coach Christopher Hoover didn't hesitate. Moments after the final horn sounded in last night's boys soccer game, he yelled a suggestion to C. Milton Wright coach Brian Gunter. "Hey, coach, one more?" Hoover said with a smile. The question was understandable as No. 5 Fallston and No. 11 C.M. Wright battled to a 0-0 tie in an Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference game. The host Mustangs and visiting Fallston played 100 minutes in a game filled with strong play. C.M. Wright (8-2-1, 2-1-1)

Centennial's Randy Collins is one of those highly skilled and elusive forwards who possesses an uncanny knack for being in the right place and for scoring the big goal. After scoring both goals for No. 10 Centennial (2-0) last week in a season-opening victory, the senior striker came through again yesterday against No. 12-ranked Fallston by scoring the game's lone goal in the 50th minute at Fallston. Guarded closely by a defender and running at full speed into the 18-yard box, Collins took a through ball from teammate Ryan Oates and booted the ball off the outside of his right foot.

Nothing is coming easy to the Blast in its quest for a Major Indoor Soccer League playoff berth. Apparently headed toward a postseason spot after an eight-game winning streak, the quest remains in doubt after the team dropped its third straight start, 12-4, to the Chicago Storm last night at 1st Mariner Arena. A sputtering offense continued to be a drawback for the Blast, which hasn't scored in double figures since beating the California Cougars here on March 3. Despite numerous opportunities, the Blast (15-12)

It took quick feet, even quicker thinking and a poised finish from Centennial senior forward Lily Boleyn yesterday for the No. 2 Glenelg girls soccer team to finally surrender a goal this season. Boleyn scored her fifth goal of the year with just under five minutes to play in the second half to lead the No. 8 Eagles to an impressive 1-0 win that not only handed the Gladiators their first loss in eight games this season, but also ended their string of seven shutouts. The Gladiators went more than 636 minutes without allowing a goal to start the season.

As Maryland heads into its 21st NCAA tournament, the Terrapins have suffered untimely injuries to two of their top scorers, Annie Collins and Acacia Walker. That has opened the door for a handful of youngsters to prove they can handle the job on the attacking end and in the midfield as the Terrapins (12-6) won five of their last six games. Freshmen Kelly Kasper and Casey Magor and sophomores Katie Doolittle and Krista Pellizzi have combined for 27 goals and 11 assists during the past four games.

Century was curious about meeting Seton Keough yesterday in the McDonogh Tournament. The Knights, who have been routing most of their opponents since beginning varsity play last year, jumped to a 4-0 start this spring and wanted to see how they'd fare against a tough opponent. That's why there weren't too many long faces on the Knights' bench after No. 13 Seton Keough rallied to pull out a 9-8 victory over No. 9 Century. The Knights gave Seton Keough all it could handle at both ends of the field.

South Carroll coach Erin Soulen delivered a baby boy Saturday, and the Cavaliers gave her the perfect present last night at Francis Scott Key. Kerrie Wuenschel scored on a shot from just inside the circle 7:05 into sudden-death overtime to give No. 5 South Carroll an emotional 2-1 field hockey victory over No. 11 Francis Scott Key. Soulen will likely be out for the next few weeks with Melisa Gray stepping in to coach. Gray and the Cavaliers players desperately wanted to give Soulen a win to celebrate the birth of her son Jake in the team's first game without her. "They wanted to win this game for her and [Jake]
