Crystal Palace Baltimore Replaces One Goalkeeper With Two

Crystal Palace Baltimore of the USSF Division II League announced Thursday the signings of goalkeepers Chase Harrison and Evan Bush to replace Brian Rowlands, who has retired to become assistant men's soccer coach at the University of Maryland.

Harrison spent four seasons at Virginia Tech (2002-05) and had a 1.12 goals against average in 79 career games with the Hokies.

He also played in offseasons for the West Virginia Chaos in the United Soccer Leagues Premier Development League.

Drafted in the third round of the 2006 Major League Soccer Supplemental Draft by Real Salt Lake, he would eventually be loaned to the USL First Division's Virginia Beach Mariners for two games before RSL would waive him.

He played in USL1 for the Rochester Rhinos (18 games in 2007), Portland Timbers (six games in 2008) and the USL Second Division's Harrisburg City Islanders.

Bush was a three-time All-Missouri Valley Conference First Team, the 2005 MAC Newcomer of the Year and a Freshman All-America selection with the University of Akron.

He holds career conference records in wins (62), shutouts (48) and goals against average (0.60).

Bush played in the USL PDL for the Chicago Fire Premier, Cleveland Internationals and the Cape Cod Crusaders and was named to the PDL's All-Central Conference team in 2006.

He had seven appearances last season in USL1 with the Cleveland City Stars.
