Aram Keshgegian and Eric Jackman looked at each other and both started counting with their fingers. Keshgegian and Jackman, teammates on St. Joseph's men's rugby team who also went to St. Joseph's Prep, couldn't remember which of their former high school teammates are playing in the Collegiate Rugby Championship at PPL Park this weekend. St. Joe's Prep will be well-represented in the 20-team rugby sevens tournament that starts with pool play at 9 a.m. on Saturday - with Keshgegian and Jackman both on the Hawks, Ryan McNulty playing for Penn State, and Dan Conmy for Notre Dame.

The Penn State women's rugby team didn't have much time to celebrate its fourth straight national championship. Soon after beating Central Washington in the title game on May 9, the Nittany Lions jumped into a retooled training regimen with a reshaped roster. The sevens season - a quicker brand of rugby played with seven players a side instead of the traditional 15 - was only a week away. "It's a lot to ask for people to stay and practice and do sevens," PSU team president Katie Meuller said.

Every time a Maryland player ran at the empty net, the crowd noise crescendoed. But the Terrapins didn't want to score. Instead each player passed up surefire goals to drain the last 3 minutes, 2 seconds off the clock and beat North Carolina, 9-8, in the national championship at PPL Park on Sunday night. After the Terrapins ran the Tar Heels ragged for the last three minutes, their reserves and coaches streamed onto the field to celebrate the program's second straight NCAA title, and its 12th all-time.

When Cortland goalie Jaclyn Beshlian wasn't making saves, she paced back and forth in the crease as if she were trapped inside the chalk semicircle. But when the final buzzer made Cortland a national champion in women's lacrosse Sunday at PPL Park, Beshlian raised her stick in the air and sprinted toward her teammates, who mobbed her from all angles. Behind eight Beshlian saves and an unrelenting attack, Cortland beat Trinity, 17-6, to capture the first NCAA Division III title in program history.

Once again, the Union are looking for a head of soccer operations. The team's CEO and operating partner, Nick Sakiewicz, said Monday that Rene Meulensteen's six-month term as consultant will end this month and will not be extended. Meulensteen is leaving for personal reasons, Sakiewicz said. Jim Curtin is the Union's head coach and Chris Albright is technical director, directly involved in player management and movement in addition to coaching decisions. Sakiewicz has been the object of recent fan derision.

IN THE MIDST of yet another season of struggle on the field for the Union, fans' frustrations with the team's perennial struggles finally boiled over last night at PPL Park. And at the very last minute, those same fans finally got a much-needed reason to celebrate. Just days after narrowly being cut from the U.S. national team for the upcoming under-20 World Cup, Zach Pfeffer scored in the 93rd minute to give the Union a 1-0 win over D.C. United. It was just the team's second victory in 12 games this season.

Sometimes it just isn't your night. That became apparent for Episcopal Academy early in the fourth quarter of its 9-5 loss to the Hun School of Princeton in the semifinals of the Inter-Ac Challenge at PPL Park in Chester. Trailing by two goals, the Churchmen controlled the ball in the Hun School zone and whistled three shots off the post during the possession. The undefeated Raiders (18-0) recovered the final miss, rushed downfield and ripped home a momentum-stealing goal.

The Union have unofficially solved their goalie situation by agreeing to extend the short-term loan to keeper Brian Sylvestre for eight weeks. The 22-year-old Sylvestre, who joined the team last Saturday and played in the Union's 3-0 Major League Soccer loss at Vancouver, is on loan from the Carolina RailHawks of the North American Soccer League. In exchange, the Union have agreed to loan forward Dzenan Catic for the eight weeks to Carolina. While the two sides have agreed to the deal, it has yet to be approved by MLS, holding up any official announcement.

The Union's struggling offense has another obstacle to overcome. Leading scorer Fernando Aristeguieta will miss the game against D.C. United on Sunday at PPL Park because of a national team commitment. Aristeguieta has been named to the preliminary roster for the Venezuelan national team ahead of the Copa America tournament. The Union (1-7-3) have lost four in a row. They host a D.C. United team that took a 5-1-3 record into a home game Wednesday against Orlando City. Aristeguieta, 23, is the only Union player with more than one goal.
