The long diagonal run from St. Paul's senior Nate Hall started before midfield and didn't end until he got past the 18-yard mark. Most times, such an effort would finish with a goal from the All-Metro striker, but circumstances were much different this time: The Crusaders had been caught flat-footed against McDonogh earlier this season, and the No. 1 Eagles were set to cash in on a quick counter. Hall sprinted back to the defensive third to disrupt that plan. Supplying offense is Hall's primary role for No. 5 St. Paul's (7-2-1)

Turning away from a sold-out crowd in Santa Clara, Calif., Taylor Twellman put down the mic and picked up the phone. "I appreciate the opportunity," he told ESPN's producers that day in July 2010. "I apologize for that being one of the worst games ever called. " The former Maryland striker had thought he knew the media well. For nine seasons, before a severe concussion ended his professional soccer career in 2008, he had been a star for Major League Soccer's New England Revolution - and when you score a lot of goals, you get a lot of interviews.

When Jerry Tobin lost his all-state goalkeeper before the season, the St. Mary's soccer coach never even whimpered.No wonder, because, instead, he got a high-scoring striker.Such was the transformation of junior Erin Hon, who, Tobin noted last month, was a goalie who "does it all." She displayed good moves and judgment, an ability to dive parallel to the ground and the leadership to direct the defense.So, why did Hon open the season as a striker? One who accumulated six goals and an assist in St. Mary's first two games and was saluted as The Baltimore Sun's Female Metro Athlete of the Week?

Severna Park's Brian Peterson is a marked man on the soccer field.In his third season as the Falcons' midfielder last year, Peterson scored 11 goals with four assists. This year, Coach Don Gregg has moved him to striker, where he's even more dangerous."His best place on the team is up front," said Peterson's goal-keeping teammate, Jason Zaks. "He could attack from the midfield last year, but up there, he's a real weapon. Everything revolves around him."Peterson enters tonight's game against visiting Broadneck with 32 career goals and 12 assists, and he's going to draw a lot of attention from Bruins' coach Kevin McMullen.

Soccer has long been known for its one-name goal scorers. Fifty years ago, it was a brilliant Brazilian star everyone called Pele. Today, it's an Argentine artist named Lionel but now known by his last name: Messi. Just saying their names evokes images of magic and trickery. And then there is Wondo. Chris Wondolowski does not elicit the same response from even the most die-hard fan - if they know him at all. He is more mechanic than maestro, a player who was expected to spend his career on the fringes, if not on the bench, until he emerged as a goal-scoring machine.

Vintage Civil War era "base ball" exhibition introduced fans to some new terms, but in many ways the game is the same. In base ball — as in the vintage circa 1865-style, two-word version of the all-American pastime — you not only have the exhilarating crack of the narrow bat hitting a slow, underhand-"hurled" (pitched), straw-filled ball. You also have the sharp smack — as in "ouch!" — of a sharply hit "stinger" (line drive) rocketing into a "ballist's" (fielder's)

Growing bored with kickball in gym class back in fourth grade, Jamie Dubyoski set his sights on an added challenge. So instead of just clobbering the ball off the gym's back wall and racing around the bases for yet another home run, he looked up at the basketball hoop at the same far end. Dubyoski had a strong right leg, but what about good aim? "Yeah," he said with a smile. "I hit the backboard a few times over the years. " Now a junior at Loyola Blakefield, Dubyoski is putting his right leg and much more to good use in a couple ways.

Landon Donovan got the goal. Jozy Altidore got the cuts and bruises. On Thursday, the day after the most memorable victory in decades for U.S. soccer, both players were holding court near the American team's rural base in Irene. For obvious reasons, the larger media crowd was gathered around three-time World Cup veteran Donovan. The argument could easily be made, however, that Altidore was just as responsible for beating Algeria. Certainly, Algeria was responsible for beating him. As the main U.S. target man up front, Altidore was constantly hacked, kicked, tripped, shoved and generally roughed up during the 1-0 win — as much as anyone can rough up a player of his size and strength.
