Sandy Spring Friends School has hired former University of Wisconsin coach Jeff Rohrman to lead the boys varsity soccer team for the 2013-2014 school year, Athletic Director Steve Powers announced Thursday. Rohrman replaces Andrew Eden, who coached the team for the past three seasons.

Rohrman led the Badgers to a 61-63-12 record in his seven years as coach at Wisconsin from 2002-2008, including a runner-up finish in the Big Ten in 2006. He also served as an assistant coach at the University of Maryland from 1995-2002. Rohrman played professionally for the Milwaukee Wave of the American Indoor Soccer Association from 1986-1987 and for Real Santa Barbara of the Western Soccer League in 1989.

Last season, Sandy Spring lost the Potomac Valley Athletic Conference Division A final game, 1-0, to Washington International.

Girls Soccer Playoffs: B-CC Tops Sherwood In PK Shootout

ROCKVILLE, Md. — The Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School girls soccer team was locked in a scoreless tie in its MPSSAA Class 4A semifinal matchup with Sherwood through regulation time and two periods of overtime at Richard Montgomery High School on Saturday, but Denali Minnick’s goal in the sixth round of the penalty kick shootout gave the Barons the win and sent them back to the state championship game.

The Warriors held a 3-2 advantage after four rounds of the shootout and needed either a goal or a stop in round five to win. But Zoe Mesirow scored for B-CC to lead off the fifth round and Barons goalkeeper Angela White made a diving stop on Kelly Flamand’s attempt to send the shootout to round six.

After Sherwood goalkeeper Nikki Steiner couldn’t stop Minnick’s shot leading off the sixth round, Christina Romas sent her attempt wide to give B-CC the victory.

The Barons (13-2), winners of four consecutive state titles, will face South River (17-2) in the 2012 Class 4A State Championship Game.

Boys Soccer Playoffs: Northwest Penalty Kick Goal Waved Off In Overtime

With the score tied at one goal apiece two minutes into the first overtime period of the MPSSAA 4A West boys soccer regional semifinal game between Northwest High School and Walter Johnson on Saturday, the Wildcats were called for a foul in the penalty area in front of their own net. Walter Johnson’s players and coaches were livid at the officials over the call, earning coach Mike Williams a red card and senior Mateo Arenas a yellow.

Jaguars senior Curtis Wynne scored on the ensuing penalty kick, sending his Northwest teammates into a celebratory frenzy and seemingly ending the game. Seconds later, however, it became apparent that the goal had been waved off as the officials ruled that Northwest had encroached on the penalty area before the ball was kicked. On the re-kick, Walter Johnson goalie Ben Meyers stopped Wynne’s shot and play continued through two scoreless overtime periods.
