Yesterday's Class 2A girls soccer final at UMBC between Centennial and Bethesda-Chevy Chase had nearly all the ingredients necessary for a championship clash: great defense, perfect passing, an exceptionally skilled midfielder and an emotional finish. Only one thing was missing. Goals. Over 80 minutes of regulation and two 10-minute overtimes, neither team could get one. So, in accordance with Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association rules, the 0-0 tie meant the Eagles and Barons were co-champions.

Among the issues that caught the attention of Towson coach Shawn Nadelen while reviewing Saturday's 9-7 loss to Colonial Athletic Association rival Hofstra, perhaps the most glaring was the offense's shooting woes. Of the 29 shots the team took, only 10 were on goal. That meant that Pride junior goalkeeper Chris Selva needed to make just three saves. “Not putting the ball on goal is a big issue,” Nadelen said Thursday morning. “When you can generate shots, you need to put them on cage to give yourself a chance to score.

At game's end, Kyle Kauffman scooped up the soccer ball at his feet at midfield, trotted over to the grandstand and, with a stage actor's aplomb, bowed to the crowd. Five hundred people, including Kauffman's parents, stood and cheered the college senior, who had fought through a lifelong neurological and physical disability - cerebral palsy - to play 18 long minutes in Stevenson's 2-0 victory over visiting Hood (3-10-2, 0-8 Middle Atlantic Conference) on Tuesday night. "This is something I will always remember," Kauffman said.

As the Bandits climbed off the bus from Hershey, Pa., after a big overtime victory against the Bears on Saturday night, coach Walt Kyle warned, "Don't sleep all morning, guys. Get up and move around. We don't want a bunch of 'bedheads' out there today against Rochester."Maybe somebody was listening, but you couldn't prove it by watching the Bandits' performance at the Arena yesterday against the Americans.Combining what looked like a relaxed pre-game skate with two periods of somnambulism, Baltimore fell behind four goals, which made recovery all but impossible.

SEATTLE - It wasn't an unusual goal that ended Maryland's season after the Terps reached the NCAA round of 16 for the first time since 1996. Instead, it was a Washington score that was called back about seven minutes earlier that sent Maryland into an emotional tailspin from which it never recovered. The Huskies' Katy Dowling sent the ball across the line but an offsides call quickly followed. The Terps had just one, weak shot on goal as they couldn't find any rhythm in absorbing a 1-0 loss to the Huskies last night in the tournament's third round.

The past few weeks, McDonogh boys soccer coach Steve Nichols has made sure to get defender Marquez Fernandez some minutes at forward when the No. 1 Eagles needed a spark up front. It proved to be time well spent. The standout junior looked right at home in the final minute of yesterday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference semifinal against visiting Archbishop Curley.

LANDOVER - Hardly a surprise, D.C. United came to FedEx Field with an extra dose of motivation last night, while fans - 31,473 strong and plenty noisy - were both curious and cautiously optimistic. After all, how often comes the chance to see how you compare with one of the world's finest clubs, last night's being Chelsea, the English Premier League champ? United, the defending Major Soccer League champion, had more than its share of moments and put some doubt in Chelsea's 2-1 victory.

Homewood Field remained a scene of heartache for the Navy lacrosse team. Despite dictating the tempo and imposing their game plan yesterday, the Midshipmen still bowed late to Virginia, 10-8, before 6,504 in an NCAA quarterfinal game. Drew Thompson broke an 8-8 tie by scoring his only goal with 5:21 left in the game and Ben Rubeor added an insurance goal nearly four minutes later as Virginia was able to finally put away a pesky Navy team.

KINGSTON, R.I. - Matt Beckman had nothing to do with his Soccer Club of Baltimore 88 Bays team allowing a goal that tied the U.S. Youth Soccer Region I U-12 semifinal late yesterday. Still, he felt he had to do something about it. Two minutes later and a couple of minutes from completion, Beckman scored the game-winner that sent the Bays into the U-12 boys final. The Bays beatWestern United of Massachusetts, 2-1. Beckman started his run on the left flank and, by the time he dribbled into the left corner of the box with a defender on his left shoulder, he knew what he had to do. "I was looking for the far post," said the striker from Dundalk.

One of the primary strategies this season for Notre Dame Prep's girls soccer team has been to strike quickly. Yesterday, All-Metro striker Beth Koloup scored on a pass from Caitlyn McFadden in the second minute and the No. 2 Blazers went on to a 2-0 victory over No. 13 Institute of Notre Dame in an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference game. While the host Blazers (6-1, 3-0 conference) are still adjusting to graduating All-Metro midfielders Zoey Bouchelle and Kayce Blandford and a few other top players from last season's A Conference championship team, the holes seem to be filling quickly.
