The Soccer Association of Columbia/Howard County was looking to do something simple when starting the Central Maryland Short-Sided League in 1998. The goal was to take the seven-players-per-team format that the club had been using for years for young girls and turn it into a travel league. The club wanted children to compete against other seven-a-side teams in other places. "We had no grandiose plans at all," said Jim Carlan, a longtime coach who is now SAC/HC's chief operating officer and also administers the league, which includes teams from Western and Southern Maryland.

NO MATTER what sport they prefer, what season, or what size their club, leaders in every single Howard County youth sports group express admiration at one point or another for the Soccer Association of Columbia/Howard County. On April 16, that club will offer a unique opportunity for every one of those leaders - certainly an opportunity that is unique in recent years. They're being invited to share, with the SAC/HC top leaders, thoughts about any topic related to youth sports that might be of mutual interest.

TWO SOCCER clubs that serve western Howard County are talking with the Department of Recreation and Parks about possible business arrangements that could lead to five or more soccer fields being built at a county-owned farm in West Friendship. Gary J. Arthur, who heads the department, said the agency is willing to listen and, if possible, work with the groups. Western Howard County Youth Soccer, which operates recreation-level leagues that serve well over 2,000 players each fall, and the Thunder Soccer Club, a smaller, more specialized travel-level club, broached the subject at a recent meeting of the rec department's advisory board.

THE HOLIDAY spirit is building and no doubt will prevail in this corner in the next few days, but not before we get something topical off our chests. Folks in amateur sports here should feel delighted, it would seem, that an oral, out-of-court deal was announced last week apparently settling the nuisance lawsuit that has hung up the Soccer Association of Columbia/Howard County's proposed, 10-field Covenant Park way too long. SAC/HC and the spokesman for the three guys who filed the suit wanted us to believe they are happy, judging from Wednesday's article in this paper.

Norwegian soccer team Harstad Sports Club takes the term "paid customers" literally. The club team from Harstad, a town of 23,000 people located 155 miles north of the Arctic Circle, is giving spectators $1.39 each to show up for a match against second division rival Staalkameratene. "For our recent games, less than 100 people have shown up, and we want to attract more," said Gunnar Berg, a member of the club's board. "Second division soccer is not exactly what draws the big crowds." The fans are to be paid by five local sponsors, including Berg's furniture store.

The Thunder Soccer Club has begun seeking land on which to build as many as 10 playing fields for exclusive use by its teams, the western Howard County's group's president says. "We're looking for, probably, about 20 acres," said David Gould, a Baltimore County printing company owner who became the club's president this year. "What we're really looking for is practice space." The club, which has more than 300 players, fielded 22 youth teams this spring and expects to have as many as 35 teams when fall competition begins, Gould said.

Conceding one goal in five games is a superlative performance for most defenses, but when that one score creates a deficit in the championship game to an elite team, the results are not often favorable. Fortunately for the Soccer Club of Baltimore Bays, Kwaku Boateng is healthy and hungry. The Hammond High product scored twice and assisted David Glaudemans' game-winner as the Bays stormed past the Philadelphia-area Delco Arsenal, 3-1, yesterday to capture the 27th Annual Columbia Invitation under-19 boys championship at Centennial High School.

ARGUMENTS before the Howard County Board of Appeals over Covenant Park, the 10-field complex the Soccer Association of Columbia/Howard County wants to build, aren't finished yet. They'll continue on two more evenings this month. After a second four-hour session of debate Thursday night, the five-member board - whose decision will determine whether construction can begin - still must hear from perhaps two more SAC/HC witnesses being called back to reply to opponents' assertions, mainly concerning traffic, as well as concluding statements.
