In the dim interior of Old St. Paul's, the oldest congregation in Baltimore — whose members included Revolutionary War figures John Eager Howard and Samuel Chase — Schaefer weighed how to deal with his personal thorns.

And his 40-foot prayer slipped through a stunned defense and a screened goalie, finding the back of the net at the buzzer to give the host Owls a 5-4 victory and keep them unbeaten and atop the Central Maryland Conference. "I really wasn't looking at the goal. I just turned around and fired, and hoped for the best," Duke said.
