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.

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.
