Mustangs crowned champs Cummings' kick in shootout puts Madeira on top; CVCA shut out

What: St. Ursula (13-4-5) vs. Strongsville (17 -3-2) When: 3 p.m. today Where: Crew Stadium, Columbus What to watch: Ranked fifth in the nation by the Soccer Coaches Association, Strongsville poses a major obstacle for an unranked St. Ursula team that wasn't expected to reach the championship game. Anchored by midfielder Jessica Roberts, the Mustangs have amassed 81 goals and allowed only nine. Senior goalie Ginni Bondi recorded a school-record 17 shutouts this season. "The Roberts girl in the middle is the player to watch," St. Ursula coach Danielle Newman said. "(Striker) Tiffany Horvath stepped up big scoring in the tournament and is another player we must stop." St Ursula and Strongsville have one common opponent, McAuley. Both teams lost to the Mohawks 2-1. "The turning point in the season was the loss to McAuley," Newman said. "We outplayed them, and the girls knew they should have won." In the middle of the season, the Bulldogs struggled with injuries. Goalie Katie Barnes broke her thumb and midfielder Monica Naltner hurt her knee. Since both players returned and freshmen sweeper Lauren Fader and striker Ashley Scheidt were elevated to varsity, St. Ursula has been a different team. The Bulldogs won 12 of the last 13 games and tied the other. St. Ursula reached the championship game with a 1-0 victory over No. 5-ranked Columbus DeSales; Strongsville defeated Walsh Jesuit 3-1. The Bulldogs won the state championship in 1991 and 1993 and will make their third finals appearance. Strongsville claimed the 1998 state title.

COLCMBUS -Jimmy Cummings' pressure-packed penalty kick handed Madeira the Division III boys soccer state championship in a 1-0 victory over Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy on Friday at Crew Stadium. After 100 minutes of scoreless play (80 regulation, 20 overtime), the game went into a shootout. Five players from each team wen.· given an opportunity to shoot against the opposing goalie from 12 yards out. The first three players from both teams scored before CVCA's Angelo Finelli shot over the net. Goalie Kevin Gilligan took Madeira's fourth shot and scored, but CVCA's No.5 man.JonathanTavlor, tied it at 4-4, putting the heat on Cummings. "I tried not to let the little dance by thrir goali<· (Stephen Tipton) bother me," Cummings said. "I shot the ball where I always shoot penalty kicks, and that's to the upper-left comer." Cummings' kick hit the back of the net after Tipton guessed wrong and lunged in the oppositt· direction. Gilligan was as proud of his own penalty-kick goal as the shutout. his 15th this season. ':A lot of the guys didn't think I could kick because I've always played in goal,'' Gilligan said. "A lot of days after practice, I took penalty kicks to show them I could do it." Brad Darter, Sean Hassman and Javier Ibarra also scored in the shootout for the Mustangs. David McMullen, Kai Kasiguran and Michael Pertz tallied for CVCA (17-4-2). "I picked the players for the shootout who I thought had a good chance to score," Madt'ira coach Jon C'nger said. "Most of these kids are in other sports and have performed in state tournament games.'' The field dimensions (115 yards long, 73 yards wide) could have been a factor, but the Mus-

Buckeyes shun BCS talk Focused on beating Purdue in Big Ten game today The Associated Press

WESTIAFAYETfE, Ind. - Ohio State understands how close it is to playing for a national title. The third-ranked Buckeyes just aren't discuss· ing the possibility. For Ohio State All·Ameri· can safety Mike Doss, winning a Big Ten Conference championship is the immediate goal. He won't even say where he thinks the Buckeyes (10-0, 5-0 Big Ten) rank among the nation's elite teams. "I just feel that we're pretty good in the Big Ten right now," Doss said. "We're undefeated and we're working hard, and we're just trying to get better. All that stuff doesn't matter until the final game." There are three unbeaten

teams atop the Bowl Champi· onship Series standings Oklahoma, Ohio State and Miami. The BCS will determine who plays in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 3. Ohio State is No. 2 in the latest rankings - a jump from No. 6 two weeks ago. Oklahoma is No.1 and Miami is third. One slip in the final three weeks could eliminate the Buckeyes from contention. Plus, Ohio State still isn't as· sured of winning the Big Ten. Hthe Buckeyes lose and No.6 Iowa (9-1, ().()) wins out, the Hawkeyes win the league title. Thafs why Ohio State coach Jim Tressel hasn't talked to his team about the Fi· esta Bowl. He wants them focused on beating Purdue (4-5, 2-3) today.

Big Ten race Team Conf. Overall 9-1 Iowa 6-0 5-0 10-0 Ohio St. Michigan 4-1 7-2 Minnesota 3-2 7-2 - - - - - - - -- .. ·---"I would say the best thing we should do is elaborate on Purdue and not elaborate on the BCS rankings," he said. A victory would give the Buckeyes their fourth 11-0 start, joining the 1975, 1979 and 1995 teams. Immediate contributions from freshmen and sophomores have led Ohio State's turnaround from a 7-5 finish a year ago. 'This is one of the better football teams we've seen in

the Big Ten since we've been in the Big Ten, if not the best," said Joe Tiller, who has coached at Purdue since 1997. The Boilermakers, once nicknamed the "Spoilermakers" for upsets of Top 25 teams, have a seven-game los· ing streak against ranked teams. The last time Purdue beat a ranked team was two years ago against No. 12 Ohio State, when a 31-27 victory landed the Boilermakers their first Rose Bowl appearance in 34 years and knocked the Buck· •eyes out of the conference title picture. Purdue hopes to do it again. "We want to go out and get our name out and get attention," Boilermakers defensive tackle Kevin Nesfield said. "We want to show we're capa· ble of competing and beating teams such as Ohio State."

Bearcats stay in bowl derby By Bill Koch Tlu Cincinnati Enquirer

The University of Cincinnati's victory over Louisville on Thursday night might have been a season-saver. 1bree weeks ago, the Bearcats were 2-5 and staring at their first losing season in three years. But after their 24-14 deci· sion over the Cardinals, UC (4-5, 3-2) is back in the bowl picture. And there's still an outside chance the Bearcats could share the Conference USA championship and secure a Uberty Bowl bid. HUC wins its final three C. USA games- at home against Houston and UAB, and at East Carolina - it will finish 7-5 overall and 6-2 in conference. That could be enough to tie the Bearcats for first place with TCU, currently 4-1, if someone else can knock off the Homed Frogs. Hthere's a tie for the league title, Uberty Bowl officials can choose which team they want. The Bearcats recovered from a sloppy, scoreless first haH against Louisville to score 24 unanswered points.
