Estancia football Coach John Liebengood was somewhat surprised when sophomore tailback Christian Gomez wanted to quit the team at the start of the season. But even more surprising was his reason--impending parenthood. Gomez, 16, and his 18-year-old wife, Alejandra, are expecting a baby boy in early November. Saddled with the financial burden and time demands of an expectant father, Gomez told his coach that he had to quit football, and possibly school, and find a job.

Christian Gomez scored in the 86th minute Sunday to give D.C. United a 1-1 tie with the New York Red Bulls, advancing United to the Eastern Conference finals in Major League Soccer. D.C. United was outshot and often outhustled by the Red Bulls, but Gomez's goal and another solid game from MLS goalkeeper of the year Troy Perkins were enough to preserve the advantage gained in last week's 1-0 victory at Giants Stadium in the first leg of the home-and-home, total-goals series.
