Two Takoma Park goalkeepers, who started out in the local soccer league, were stars for their teams in championship matches of the Maryland Cup in June.
Sam Howard (right) was perfect in goal for his team, the Cougars, who won the U17 finals, 2-0, advancing to the regionals in West Virginia.

Seth MacMillan (above) also had a stellar game, but his team, Pachuca, lost a 1-0 heartbreaker in the U18 finals.
Seth, however, had won the championship last year with the same team
and is off this fall to Princeton on a soccer scholarship, while Sam is
pondering his choice of colleges.
