Nobody had to remind Archbishop Curley's Chris Shanahan about the scoring abilities of All-Metro forward Steve Matcuk before yesterday's game at rainy Mount St. Joseph.It was Shanahan who two years ago drew the assignment to guard the 6-foot-2 scoring machine in the Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference semifinals. Then, Matcuk beat the sophomore badly, scoring twice to give Mount St. Joe a victory.Yesterday, however, Matcuk was a marked man.Thanks largely to Shanahan's close marking, Matcuk, the 1992 All-City Player of the Year, rarely touched the ball, and visiting and No. 3 Curley (3-0, 2-0)

Archbishop Curley senior Anthony Celenza says this year's Friars are a team rather than a group of individual players.In yesterday's 5-2 win over visiting Cardinal Gibbons (11-5-2) in the Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference semifinals, Celenza was a team all by himself.Celenza scored four goals to lead the third-ranked Friars (17-1) to the championship game, where they will face No. 2 Calvert Hall on Monday at 3:15 p.m. at Essex Community College. Calvert Hall beat Mount St. Joseph, 4-1, in yesterday's other semifinal.

If you ask Curley striker Antonio Celenza, there's sometimes a price to be paid for being a good soccer player.Celenza scored the Friars' second goal in yesterday's 3-0 victory -- his 14th goal of the season -- as fourth-ranked Curley (13-1, 12-0) blanked Division II rival Friends (9-6-1, 4-6).Greg Loftus, who scored the Friars' final goal 13 minutes into the second half, also assisted on the first goal, Mike Gizzi's ninth, 18 minutes into the game.The Friars earned their 10th shutout in dominant fashion, holding a 25-12 shots-on-goal advantage, including 16-4 in the second half, against its Maryland Scholastic Association A Conference nemesis.

The "Dog Pound" retired as a winner yesterday.Archbishop Curley High School's athletic grounds are scheduled for a rearrangement, and the quaint soccer field where the Friars have been almost invincible (31-0-1 over four years) will be no more next season."We call it the Dog Pound because people come in here to get pounded," said senior midfielder Mike Bailey.Top-seeded Curley's sendoff was a 2-0 victory over fourth-seeded Gilman in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association semifinals that advanced the Friars into tomorrow's final at UMBC.

I am fond of skateboarders. One of my sons used to be one. When our young skater used to slip away from home, my wife and I knew chances were good that he was either at "the statue" in front of the Lyric Opera House or at "the bowl" in Lansdowne, working on his tricks. In those years, I learned that although many skaters looked "hard," they were good souls. But until I visited Johnny Rad's , I did not know that skaters were so fond of vegetables. Johnny Rad's, named after a character in a skateboard movie, sits in the 2100 block of Eastern Ave., next door to a firehouse and across the street from a duckpin bowling alley.

The players have come and gone during his 25 years, but the rhetoric remains the same for Calvert Hall soccer coach Bill Karpovich.There are times, though, when he picks it up a notch to ensure the attention of his players.That was the case yesterday, as the No. 7 Cardinals (3-0-1) had first-half problems with No. 12 John Carroll (2-2) in Bel Air.The speech will go unrecorded, but it obviously accomplished its purpose as the more skilled visitors overwhelmed the Patriots with four second-half goals for a 5-1 Maryland Scholastic Association victory.

Archbishop Curley coach Pep Perrella said when a goalkeeper plays like Ryan Beaumont of Cardinal Gibbons did yesterday, you need to be perfect to score.Giuliano Celenza was perfect for Curley. In fact, he was perfect twice, enough for the Friars to clinch the Maryland Scholastic Association Armstrong A Conference Division II regular-season title.Celenza scored twice, with assists from Mike Bailey both times, including the game-winner on a 10-yard shot in the 74th minute to give No. 4 Archbishop Curley a 2-1 victory over visiting Cardinal Gibbons.

Yesterday's Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference showdown between No. 3 Calvert Hall and No. 2 Archbishop Curley had all the makings of a boys soccer classic.From the opening whistle, the teams went at it with the intensity of a playoff game, fighting for every ball and debating every call as an overflow crowd -- lining the perimeter of the field, two and three deep in places -- hung on every kick.There was only one thing missing -- a goal.After 80 minutes of regulation and 10 of overtime, neither the Cardinals nor the host Friars could put the ball in the net, and the game ended in a scoreless tie.For Curley (15-1-1 overall, 15-0-1 league)

Before the soccer season started, most Baltimore-area boys soccer coaches -- from public and private schools alike -- were voicing their support for the changes made in the off-season.More than a majority of the public-school coaches are for the open postseason tournament, saying it will help sustain the interest of more teams as the season progresses and help build a greater following of the sport.The Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association, formerly the MSA, shuffled teams from its two conferences, raising the B Conference membership from five to 10 teams while strengthening an already highly competitive A Conference.
