After two seasons of futility, victory is sweet for Edgewood

When Edgewood defeated Harford Tech, 11-0, in boys soccer last week, it marked the Rams' first win since 1990.

Craig Jester had four goals and two assists and Dan Lose had two goals and three assists.


The Rams followed successive 5-7 seasons in 1989 and 1990 with successive winless seasons in 1991 and 1992. They also lost the first three games of this season.

Around the colleges


Sophomore Damon Bomar (Edgewood) is a starting defensive end who is turning into a "big-play" man, and former high school teammates Brian Johnson and Lawrence Worthington are on the Liberty football squad.

In four games (3-1), the 6-foot, 220-pound Bomar has 19 tackles, two sacks, three tackles for losses, forced one fumble and recovered another.

One of his sacks took Appalachian State out of scoring range in a 20-14 Liberty win, and his fumble recovery against Southwest Texas State helped save a 17-14 win.

Johnson (5-10, 165) is a defensive back who has seen duty on special teams in three games, and Worthington has yet to see action.
