Anne Arundel Community College men's soccer coach Ken Wolf has had his beard almost as long as he has coached at the school - 33 years.But thanks to a deal made with his players, he'll soon need some aftershave.
In a 1-1 overtime decision decided on penalty kicks, the Pioneers advanced to the NJCAA National Semifinals in Herkimer, N.Y., on Benito Barbosa's game winning kick, defeating County College of Morris (N.J.) at AACC's Siegert Stadium.
"I had the players over for dinner this week, and they joked that if we advanced to nationals, I should shave off my beard," said Wolf
"I assumed it would come down to penalty shots," said Wolf
, "These regional and national match-ups are usually played pretty evenly."
The win gave the Pioneers the NJCAA Division III District IV title, and advanced the team to the national semifinals for the first time since 1995.At that time eight teams advanced instead of the now established four-team championship.
Next Saturday the Pioneers will face either No. 1 seed and host Herkimer, or No. 2 Richland (Texas), with the winner advancing to next Sunday's title game.
"This win belongs to all of the players I have coached over the years," said Wolf
, who was still shaking from a Gatorade shower given to him by Matthew Conlon and Patrick McGuire.
"At that point I just wanted the time to expire, and to give positive reinforcement to my team," said Wolf

After a successful season that saw the Pioneers fall just short of capturing the Region XX championship, long-time Anne Arundel Community College men's soccer coach Ken Wolf must replace the bulk of his defense and hope his offense picks up steam.
That will not necessarily be the case this season," Wolf
The midfield position is the team's strength, as depth is a luxury that Wolf
will have in this spot.Bulgarian Pavel Raynov and South River product Jordan Palmer will play on the wings and Wolf
is looking for both to serve as catalysts capable of jump-starting the offense as well as legitimate goal-scoring threats.
"All of the guys in the middle have good skills and Jordan and Tyler have speed that will help them get to the outside and make breaks to the goal," Wolf
...Wolf, who says that assistant coach Nick Cosentino has been a valuable resource with the new squad, hopes it is the start of another journey to a region championship.
