KINGSTON, R.I. - Moments after the Soccer Club of Baltimore Bays won the under-12 boys championship for the northeastern United States yesterday, Matt Beckman grabbed a Maryland flag and led teammates around the University of Rhode Island. There was no better flag bearer after the Bays' 2-0 win over Connecticut's Oakwood Soccer Club for the U.S. Youth Soccer Association's Region I championship. Beckman, who also hit the semifinal game-winner, scored both goals in the last 10 minutes. The first, ripped into the upper-right corner, came in the 50th minute off a flick-on from Wade McHugh at the top of the box. He secured the win in the 57th minute, chipping a stolen ball just over the charging Oakwood goalkeeper's head from about 18 yards.

WHAT with all the talk about the record-smashing Baltimore Orioles and the white-knuckle business of waiting for a football franchise, many think that Baltimore is a baseball or football town. "No way," says Eugene Ringsdorf. "Going way back, Baltimore always was, and still is, a soccer town."By that Mr. Ringsdorf means that in his view more Baltimore kids play soccer than play either baseball or football -- always have, probably always will. It's hard to know for sure, of course, but Mr. Ringsdorf makes a case.
