The Bel Air girls soccer team came at C. Milton Wright's defense with persistent pressure that came from everywhere in the first half. Freshman forward Alexcia Kraemer made sure the hard work paid dividends for the No. 5 Bobcats as she scored two goals before halftime to send Bel Air to a 3-0 home win over the No. 8 Mustangs. "Very early on, we had to adjust to the wet field," Bel Air coach Josh Clemmer said. "We kind of mishit a couple balls and that was almost a wake-up call for us. … As soon as they figured out to strike the ball solid and play the skip on the field, they pressured up. " The win helped the Bobcats move a big step closer to clinching the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference's Chesapeake division.

Defending Howard County champion: No. 2 River Hill The Howard County picture is clear going into the season: It's River Hill and then the rest.  The Hawks, led by the dynamite one-two scoring punch of 2012 All-Metro forwards Sheridan Street (first team) and Alex Hamer (second team), return the brunt of last year's 19-0 team that captured the program's eight state title. Reservoir coach Josh Sullivan recently put it best: “To beat River Hill, you're going to have to bring your absolute best and hope to catch them off their game some.” There are plenty of quality teams to provide a push.

The Sun reports that Towson University Athletic Director Mike Waddell is recommending the elimination of the baseball and soccer programs ("Baseball, men's soccer target of cuts," Oct. 3). By cutting baseball and soccer, Mr. Waddell would save about $800,000. Clearly, the label "bean counter" should be placed on Mr. Waddell. The label allows Mr. Waddell to ignore logic, courage, tradition, integrity, and wisdom as factors in the decision. I am proud to say that I played soccer for another athletic director at Towson by the name of Dr. Donald "Doc" Minnegan.

The Hawks were celebrating Senior Night with a chance to wrap up their fourth straight Howard County championship and Hamer made it happen.
