Penn State put on a powerful display of precision soccer yesterday, routing Southern Methodist, 5-0, in the third round of the NCAA women's soccer tournament in State College, Pa. The victory pushed the streaking Nittany Lions (20-3-1) into the quarterfinals, where they will host surprising Hartford (18-4-2) on Saturday. In reaching the Elite Eight, Hartford shocked defending national champion Florida, 1-0, in Gainesville, and 16th-ranked Virginia, 3-2 in overtime, in Charlottesville.

The standard route to the Final Four of the NCAA soccer championships is to recruit a gaggle of hotshots who've toured the country playing youth soccer since they were about 4 years old. Princeton has done it another way. The Tigers, who face top-ranked Virginia today in Davidson, N.C., in the NCAA semifinals, start a defender who began playing lightweight football at Princeton before switching to soccer, plus a forward who competed for...

Heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe is having second thoughts about a plan to defend his newly won title against George Foreman in Beijing, according to his manager, Rock Newman. Instead, Newman said, he's thinking about a title defense Jan. 31 at the Convention Center in Washington, D.C., during halftime of the Super Bowl, the Washington Post reported. The fight would be televised on the Fox network, which scored significant success during last year's Super Bowl halftime with its Halftime Party show.

Philadelphia Textile lost a second-round NCAA soccer tournament game to Howard University yesterday, but the manner in which the Rams fell made the defeat even more difficult for them to accept. Howard goalie Shaka Hislop scored on a penalty kick to defeat the Rams, 2-1, and send the Bison into the quarterfinals against Virginia, a 1-0 winner over Fairleigh Dickinson. For Textile, the loss ended a 17-game unbeaten streak. Howard, meanwhile, extended its unbeaten streak to 23 games.

On her way to setting a Delaware Valley Girls Track Coaches Association record in the 1,000 meters on Saturday, Downingtown East's Marie Thompson nearly had a collision that would have cost her the mark. She was well ahead of the field on the indoor track at Lehigh when noncompeting runners crossed the track, apparently not realizing she was in a race. "I was doing my race when I almost ran into four girls," said Thompson, who set an association record of 3 minutes, 6/10ths of a second for the 1,000.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - When the time came for the Union to make their first-round selection in the Major League Soccer SuperDraft, the club's brass didn't have to think too hard. They simply took the best player available. That player was UCLA junior Chandler Hoffman, a dynamic forward with one of the top pedigrees at his position in college soccer. "Chandler was the best option available, and we didn't hesitate," Union manager Peter Nowak said. Even though the Union are already well-stocked at forward, drafting Hoffman became even more appealing because of his Generation Adidas early-entry status.

Jason Garey scored two goals in an NCAA soccer tournament-record 15-second span, and top-seeded Maryland beat SMU, 4-1, yesterday to advance to the championship game of the NCAA College Cup, in Cary, N.C. Garey's goals came less than two minutes into the second half. Robbie Rogers found room along the left wing and sent a cross to the back post, where A.J. Godbolt headed the ball down for Garey, who scored at 46 minutes, 41 seconds. Seconds after the ensuing restart, a pass intended to lead Garey on a run toward the SMU goal caromed off the heel of Mustangs defender Mynor Gonzalez, and Garey beat goalkeeper Matt Wideman at 46:56.

If only Drexel had played the first 85 minutes of its NCAA soccer tournament play-in game yesterday the same way it played the final five. "It would have been a different game," senior defender Rob Gottschalk said solemnly. Steve Jackson netted a pair of goals and Scott Fanning added another as Rider downed the Dragons, 3-1, at Drexel Field. The victory gave the Broncs (13-7-1), newly crowned champions of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, their second straight berth in the NCAA tournament.

Thirteen-year-old soccer prodigy Freddy Adu, a native of Ghana, agreed to a $1 million contract with Nike, the Washington Post reported yesterday. Adu, already an offensive star on the U.S. under-17 national team, also has agreed to be represented by SportsNet, LLC. The Post said Adu is not likely to sign a pro contract for at least a year. He would become ineligible for NCAA soccer, but he does not plan to play in college. Auto racing Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus received five-year contract extensions from Hendrick Motorsports yesterday, a day after completing an impressive two-race sweep at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C. Terms were not disclosed.

West Chester native Andrew O'Malley enjoyed the homecoming of a lifetime. O'Malley's header off a Harrison Shipp free kick in the 60th minute provided the difference in Notre Dame's 2-1 win over Maryland in the NCAA College Cup final on Sunday at PPL Park in Chester. "It's kind of how anybody would have wanted to end his senior year," said O'Malley, a defender who attended the Salesianum School in Delaware and was named to the all-tournament team. Maryland keeper Zack Steffen, a freshman from Downingtown West who was named the most outstanding defensive player of the tournament, had little chance to make the save.

Notre Dame sophomore midfielder Patrick Hodan has been on a certified late-season roll that extended during his and the Fighting Irish's first-ever College Cup appearance. Hodan scored two goals as third-seeded Notre Dame beat No. 7 New Mexico, 2-0, in an NCAA semifinal soccer win at PPL Park in Chester on Friday. Notre Dame (16-1-6) will face Maryland, 2-1 winners over Virginia in Friday's second semifinal, in the College Cup championship game at 3 p.m. Sunday, in what will be an all-Atlantic Coast Conference final.

It's a formula that has produced staggering success during the last four seasons for Maryland's soccer team. When senior Patrick Mullins scores at least one goal, the Terrapins usually win. Mullins scored twice as Maryland defeated rival Virginia, 2-1, in Friday's NCAA tournament semifinal at PPL Park. The fifth-seeded Terrapins (17-3-5) will meet ACC foe Notre Dame in the College Cup championship at 3 p.m. Sunday. No. 8 Virginia ended its season at 13-6-5. Mullins has 46 career goals at Maryland, which is second on the school's all-time list.

PENN AND DREXEL were ousted in the first round of the NCAA men's soccer tournament last night. Penn lost to visiting Providence, 3-1, on penalty kicks. Old Dominion defeated visiting Drexel, 5-1, in Norfolk, Va. Penn's Alec Neumann opened the scoring at 9 minutes of the first half, but Wilder Arboleda tied it up 12 minutes later and the score remained knotted through two overtimes. The Quakers took a 1-0 lead on Duke Lacroix's penalty kick. But, Providence (13-5-3) got goals from Julian Gressel, Anthony Baumann and Markus Naglestad to advance to a second-round game at fifth-seeded Maryland on Sunday.

When Drexel and Penn got together early last month to play soccer, the coaches also got together - after the Quakers came away with a 3-2 victory. "I don't think either of us believed we'd be here at this point," Drexel coach Doug Hess said. Here was a Tuesday luncheon at a restaurant on Walnut Street in West Philadelphia, border territory for the two schools, where the coaches celebrated their teams' qualifying for the NCAA men's soccer tournament. That victory against Drexel had broken a six-game losing streak for the Quakers, who took off and won the Ivy League, clinching an automatic berth.

Saturday's nontitle welterweight bout between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez has all the makings of a classic as the two fighters prepare to meet for a fourth and, almost certainly, final time in the ring. Their previous three encounters were gripping, all-action affairs between Filipino Pacquiao, probably the greatest offensive fighter of his generation, and Mexican Marquez, one of the best counterpunchers in recent memory. Adding further spice to the mix is the fact that both men have a lot to prove when they square up at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for their heavily anticipated showdown.

The first thing that is surprising about Mandy Moraca is her age. Only 23, she has traveled far in a literal and figurative sense in the soccer world. She's gone from Mantua to North Carolina, to Northern California, to Buffalo, and now to Alabama. Mixed in were two college national championships, one professional title, the beginning of a coaching career - and a handful of knee surgeries. The travels will take Moraca back to her roots when the former high school all-American from Gloucester Catholic is inducted into the South Jersey Soccer Hall of Fame.
