College soccer team concedes goal, restarts the match, scores from midfield

The first half had gone terribly wrong and, after conceding the third goal Tuesday, the George Washington Colonials marched back to the center circle to restart their NCAA non-conference match against seventh-ranked North Carolina. With halftime 79 seconds away, GW would’ve been happy getting to intermission without falling into a deeper deficit. Instead of killing […]

Maryland is No. 1 in college soccer thanks in part to a quick rebuild on defense

At the dawn of a new season, Sasho Cirovski wasn’t very concerned about the capacity of his Maryland men’s soccer team to score goals.

Chicago Fire hands D.C. United a second straight loss, 3-0

D.C. United’s visit to Chicago on Saturday followed a familiar script: unfulfilled opportunity, an own goal (this one to United’s detriment), defensive errors and, ultimately and predictably, another defeat. Ian Harkes placed the ball into his own net midway through the first half, and the rest transpired without disruption as United dropped a 3-0 result […]

D.C. United can’t take advantage of late chances in loss to Orlando City

D.C. United has grown markedly better since making several roster moves last month. What continues to torment the organization, though, is the inability to complete scoring opportunities.

U.S. soccer team boosts World Cup hopes by salvaging draw against Honduras

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras — Since 1990, when a band of former college stars took the U.S. national team to the World Cup in Italy, American soccer has been among a handful of countries to participate in the sport’s planet-mesmerizing spectacle every four years, even performing well enough to advance to the knockout stages semi-regularly.
