ORLANDO - If he had to lose, Soul receiver Tiger Jones would rather get blown out than lose like his team did to Arizona in Saturday's ArenaBowl. A disappointing day continued the Soul's frustrations against the Rattlers, as Arizona won, 48-39, before an Amway Center crowd of 12,039 and a national TV audience. The big play eluded the Soul all day. The sequence that symbolized the afternoon came in the final minute, when it looked as if the Soul might pull off a heart-stopping comeback.

THE SOUL-ARIZONA Rattlers series isn't so much a rivalry as it is a sibling relationship. And Arizona is the big brother. For the Soul to make it a legitimate rivalry, Philadelphia is going to have to beat the Rattlers one of these days. They get their next crack on Saturday at ArenaBowl 26 in Orlando. "They're a good football team," head coach Clint Dolezel said, "but we feel like we can play with them. No doubt about it. " The Soul advanced to their third ArenaBowl with Saturday's 75-59 win at Jacksonville in the American Conference Championship.

PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. - On a day filled with speeches from dignitaries including the vice president, the words of the lone survivor of a fire crew overrun by flames resonated deepest in an arena packed with firefighters from around the nation. A stone-faced Brendan McDonough filed onto the stage at the end of the service Tuesday and offered what's called "The Hot Shot's Prayer," calmly reciting the words: "For if this day on the line I should answer death's call, Lord, bless my Hotshot crew, my family, one and all. " He concluded by telling the crowd: "Thank you, and I miss my brothers.

PRESCOTT, Ariz. - They remembered the Fourth but also the 19. At Bistro St. Michael on Whiskey Row in this Old West town, 19 candles burned beneath red, white, and blue bunting, one for each firefighter killed last weekend battling a wildfire not far from the place they called home. In a quiet neighborhood near the high school, which at least five of them attended, 19 miniature U.S. flags were planted in front yards, each pole tied with the purple ribbon that commemorates fallen firefighters.

YARNELL, Ariz. - A fast-moving wildfire killed 19 firefighters Sunday afternoon after the blaze raced through an Arizona community, a state forestry official told the Associated Press. Forestry spokesman Art Morrison said the firefighters were caught by the fire near the central Arizona town of Yarnell, about 85 miles northwest of Phoenix. He said the firefighters were forced to deploy their fire shelters, tent-like structures meant to shield firefighters from flames and heat. Earlier Sunday, the 2,000-acre wildfire prompted evacuations of 50 homes in several communities.

Despite entering this year's USA Sevens Collegiate Rugby Championships with back-to-back titles, Dartmouth didn't let itself get too confident. So when the Big Green fell behind late Saturday against Arizona - a rematch of last year's title game - panic didn't settle in. "You're never comfortable," Dartmouth senior Pat Flynn said. To cap a possession late in the second half, Dartmouth captain Madison Hughes shoveled a pass to teammate Kevin Clark, who scored an uncontested try to tie the game.
