After a dominating first half, the Union couldn't match the effort in the final 45 minutes Sunday and saw their modest unbeaten string snapped. Allowing players to roam freely near the goal, the Union squandered a 1-0 halftime lead in a 2-1 Major League Soccer loss to the New England Revolution at PPL Park. The Union, 1-0-1 in their previous two games, lowered their record to 1-4-3. "It was a very disappointing result," Union coach Jim Curtin said. "We let a huge opportunity slip through our fingers.

U.S. soccer fans had expected last night's final World Cup qualifying match to be a celebration after their team clinched a spot in next year's World Cup with a 3-2 win at Honduras on Saturday. They got their party, but not until the very end. In the final seconds of stoppage time in the second half, U.S. defender Jonathan Bornstein redirected a corner kick for a 2-2 tie with Costa Rica at RFK Stadium. Forward Bryan Ruiz had given the visitors a 2-0 lead with two goals midway through the first half.

WASHINGTON - When the final whistle blew in the U.S. soccer team's 3-2 win at Honduras on Saturday that clinched a berth in the World Cup, their fans back home expected tonight's final World Cup qualifying match to be a celebration. But the mood turned sour early Tuesday morning, when star U.S. forward Charlie Davies was seriously injured in a car crash on a highway near the team's hotel. Both players and fans arrived at RFK Stadium with heavy hearts. The task at hand, however, was the same as it was before: A win or tie against Costa Rica would clinch first place outright in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying standings for the first time ever.

Tony Parker was cleared to play on the French national basketball team in the London Olympics after suffering an eye injury as a bystander to a nightclub brawl in New York, the team said in a statement Saturday. Parker, a guard for the San Antonio Spurs, underwent surgery after a shard of glass penetrated his left eye when the entourages of hip-hop artists Drake and Chris Brown clashed last month in Manhattan. A four-time all-star and three-time NBA champion, Parker has averaged 16.8 points and 5.9 assists per game in his 11-year career, spent entirely with the Spurs.

The biggest names in United States soccer are not playing in the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup, but U.S. players in tomorrow's quarterfinal match against Panama at Lincoln Financial Field still could have a chance of making next summer's World Cup roster. Just ask Jimmy Conrad. Conrad, a 32-year-old defender, captained the U.S. Gold Cup team in last week's 2-2 tie against Haiti. He had no international appearances - or "caps", as they are called in soccer - before the Gold Cup in 2005.

The NCAA's Board of Directors is evaluating a proposal that would require incoming freshmen men's basketball players in need of academic help to take six credit hours in summer school. The player would have to pass three hours to be able to play. The Basketball Academic Enhancement Group also recommended allowing players that take summer classes to participate in 8 hours per week of athletic activities. Schools would be required to set the criteria and assess the athlete's ability to perform in the classroom.

IT WOULD have been a challenge for the Union to face New England's dynamic attack at any time during the season. Lee Nguyen, Kelyn Rowe, Juan Agudelo and Charlie Davies form one of Major League Soccer's most fearsome arsenals. For the Revolution to be the Union's third game in a 9-day stretch, though, was especially tough. Union manager Jim Curtin didn't back down from it. He started all four of his best attacking players as well: Zach Pfeffer and Cristian Maidana in midfield, and C.J. Sapong and Fernando Aristeguieta on the forward line.

An anti-doping arbitration panel has suspended agent and coach Mark Block for 10 years after finding he trafficked in drugs supplied by BALCO and gave them to his wife, sprinter Zhanna Block. In hearings last December, the arbitration panel heard testimony from Jeff Novitzky, a key investigator into the doping scandal at the Bay Area Lab Co-Operative that landed a number of athletes in trouble, including Barry Bonds, who goes on trial next week for perjury. The arbitrators' ruling, announced yesterday by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, said Block tried to mislead them about his involvement with BALCO and its founder, Victor Conte.

The eternally half-full glass that is the United States men's national soccer program had another occasionally interesting run through the World Cup. It was certainly more interesting than four years before, when the team was dismissed with hardly a whimper, but still fell far short of the promise made in 2002, when the U.S. team advanced to the quarterfinal round. As usual, it is difficult to tell if the team - and more broadly, the level of the sport - is still going steadily forward in this country after it was bounced in the second round of the finals by a Ghana squad that is talented but hardly among the game's elite.
