For the the third time in four years, the UMBC men's soccer team experienced the heart break of having their season end on penalty kicks in the NCAA tournament. The loss Sunday to Connecticut in the second round was especially painful because the Retrievers had twice fought back from deficits to force overtime. The loss also ended one of the most successful seasons in program history. With the game tied 2-2 at the end of the second overtime and temperatures dipping below 29 degrees, the Huskies prevailed 4-2 in the shootout and will play the winner of top-seeded UCLA and Elon on Sunday.

Minutes after watching his No. 12 seed UC Irvine team fall, 1-0, to No. 5 seed Maryland in the third round of the NCAA men's soccer tournament Sunday night at Ludwig Field, coach George Kuntz had one wish, and it had to do with freshman goalkeeper Zack Steffen. “I wish he was a senior, because we may have to see him sometime again,” Kuntz said admiringly. “He's good. Even the DVDs we have on that guy don't give him credit. Those saves, you saw with your own eyes. Not only those things, but just the simple things.

WITH ALL the rain that continues to play havoc with youth sports schedules, it seems hardly possible that next weekend is Memorial Day weekend. And that means another Columbia Invitational Soccer Tournament, which is now a tradition here. A total of 172 youth teams - about 90 of them for girls from ages 9 to 19 - from up and down the East Coast, and a few from beyond, are registered to compete in the 28th annual tournament. The event, by the way, has been downsized this spring by about 50 teams because of, frankly, a lack of quality fields.

This year's traditional Memorial Day weekend soccer tournament, a three-day fixture in Columbia and other parts of Howard County for 27 years, was canceled yesterday because heavy rain has left playing fields saturated and more rain is predicted throughout the holiday weekend. Gary J. Arthur, director of Howard County's Department of Recreation and Parks, was first to decide to close his agency's fields. But the county school system was not far behind, also closing the fields it controls - leaving 175 youth teams from mostly the East Coast with no place to play.

One of the benefits of earning a seed in the NCAA men's soccer tournament is a first-round bye. So while 32 teams battle in Thursday's first round, the other 16 teams can sit back and rest. It is a reward that No. 5 seed Maryland (13-3-5) intends to take full advantage of. After defeating Boston College, Clemson and Virginia in a span of six days to capture their second straight Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championship and their third in the last five years, the Terps are looking forward to replenishing their energy reserves and getting ready for Sunday's second-round game against either Providence (12-5-3)
