Katie Barnes scored the game-winning goal 16 minutes into the second half to lift the San Jose CyberRays to a 2-1 victory over the Charge yesterday at Spartan Stadium. The Charge - 3-10-4 for 13 points - remain in last place in the eight-team WUSA standings. San Jose - 6-8-2 for 20 points - ended a three-game winless skid (0-2-1) to win for just the second time in nine games. Melanie Hoffmann scored the lone goal for the Charge, who have lost four in a row for the second time this season.

The Charge completed a successful weekend by earning home-field advantage for the Women's United Soccer Association semifinals yesterday without even playing a game. After Saturday's 3-1 victory over San Diego, the Charge needed Washington to tie or beat Atlanta yesterday to get a home playoff game. When the Freedom defeated Atlanta, 3-2, the Charge was assured of being at home for the first round. Their playoff opener will take place Aug. 17 at Villanova Stadium. The WUSA has not announced the game time, but it's highly possible that there will be two playoff games that day, with one at 1:30 and another at 4. "It's great to have home field," Charge coach Mark Krikorian said last night while driving home from the game in Washington.

Charge coach Mark Krikorian said yesterday that there is no definitive word on the status of leading scorer Kelly Smith, but the prognosis isn't optimistic. Smith was taken off in a stretcher during the 72d minute of Saturday's scoreless tie against the San Jose CyberRays. Despite having no contact with a CyberRays player, Smith injured her right knee while making a pass to Zhao Lihong. Smith's knee twisted after making the pass, and she was in noticeable pain on the synthetic playing surface at Villanova Stadium.

The guy playing quarterback for Villanova on Saturday afternoon wore a black ski mask under his helmet. And as he scrambled into the end zone to briefly give the Wildcats a late lead, you had to look up the sideline to confirm it actually was backup Chris Polony out there and not John Robertson in disguise. Robertson stood off to the side in street clothes, with a headset on. Villanova's star quarterback, and the favorite for the Walter Payton Award, was scratched before the game with a concussion.

A LOSS tomorrow at 13th-ranked Richmond (6-2, 3-1 CAA) obviously wouldn't end No. 4 Villanova's (7-1, 4-0) season. But a win could go a real long way toward enhancing the Wildcats' postseason prospects. Much of the time in FCS it's about putting yourself into the most conducive position. Because the last thing you want to have to do is take your team on the road in December. Nobody understands that better than coach Andy Talley, who's experienced both sides of that equation. So he knows precisely how much is at stake this week, in terms of long-range perspective.

When John Robertson needed shoulder surgery in the offseason, it allowed him to spend some time on the sidelines last spring and watch his Villanova teammates closer than ever before. "I got a different perspective," Robertson said. "I was pretty much able to watch the offense from the outside. I saw so many different things that I hadn't seen playing. I was like, 'alright, this is what I have to do.' " Whatever it was that Robinson saw, it's paying dividends. Set to lead the fifth-ranked Wildcats (6-1)

Watching the same game as everyone else at Villanova Stadium, Maine coach Jack Cosgrove summed up the afternoon perfectly. "Their guy's hard to tackle," Cosgrove said, referring to Villanova quarterback John Robertson, who ran 22 times for 214 yards and four touchdowns, becoming the first Villanova player in history to go over 200 yards two weeks in a row. Maine's coach continued his sentence, saying his own QB throws the ball as well as...

Penn starting offensive guard Sean McGinn says Saturday's 5 p.m. game at Villanova carries extra special meaning, especially considering his local roots. McGinn is from West Chester and attended Philadelphia's St. Joseph's Prep. And this rivalry, which dates back to 1905 but had long gaps where the teams didn't play each other, is one McGinn was long familiar with before attending Penn. "It's absolutely a great rivalry," McGinn said earlier this week following practice at Franklin Field.

A year after leading the Colonial Athletic Association in rushing, Villanova junior running back Kevin Monangai isn't getting as much work, but he remains confident that regardless of his role, he can be a major contributor for the Wildcats. Monangai rushed for 1,210 yards on 212 carries (5.7 average) and 11 touchdowns in earning first-team all-CAA honors last season. He averaged 17.7 carries per game. In the Wildcats' first three games, the 5-foot-8, 210-pound Monangai is averaging nine carries (27 carries, 128 yards, one touchdown)

The best running attack in the Colonial Athletic Association was the trademark of Villanova's four-game winning streak. But against a talented Richmond team on Saturday night at Villanova Stadium, after the Wildcats couldn't establish the running game, costly turnovers and ill-timed penalties led to their demise. Four turnovers and a blocked punt proved crucial in Villanova's 28-17 loss, its first defeat since the Mayor's Cup loss at Temple on Aug. 31. Redshirt freshman quarterback John Robertson accounted for 425 of Villanova's 460 yards of offense but also committed each of the turnovers.
