For almost the entire time that Jurgen Klinsmann has been part of the American soccer landscape, he has yearned for the kind of occasion that Lincoln Financial Field hosted on Saturday. And not just since he took the helm of the U.S. men's soccer team five years ago.

As the game clock neared zero, Tufts attack John Uppgren fired the tying shot toward the net. Colin Reymann snatched it, the buzzer sounded, and his teammates sprinted toward the Salisbury goalie in celebration. "I'm not sure who had the ball. It happened so fast. . . . I just kept my hands high," said Reymann, who was named the game's most outstanding player. "Next thing I knew, it was in my stick.
