Wolves: League win CONTINUED FROM B1 He hit the free throw, and Sequim led 43-40 going into the final period. Carter scored 15 points in the game. Brocklesby only managed seven, but found other ways to help the Wolves win, including blocking Kingston’s KT Deam’s layup that would have cut Sequim’s lead to one point with less than a minute to play.

“[Brocklesby] played a very solid game,� Glasser said. “You can be solid without scoring a lot of points.� Even the players who only played a few minutes, such as Donovan Lee and Dylan Eekhoff received praise from the Sequim coaches for the impact they made on the game. With the win, the Wolves move to 2-2 on the season and 2-1 in league play. “It was a big win,� Glasser said.

Youkilis, Yankees reportedly agree to a one-year contract THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ered several options as a stopgap at third, including Jeff Keppinger and Mark Reynolds, but both accepted deals with other teams. Youkilis played third base and first base last season for the Red Sox and Chicago White Sox. He was traded to the White Sox last June as Boston’s new management reshaped the Red Sox roster. There was friction from the start of the season, when first-year manager Bobby Valentine questioned Youkilis’ commitment — Dustin Pedroia publicly stood up for his longtime teammate, yet it seemed clear Youkilis’ days in Boston were numbered.

NEW ORLEANS — In a sharp rebuke to his successor’s handling of the NFL’s bounty investigation, former Commissioner Paul Tagliabue overturned the suspensions of four current and former New Orleans Saints players in a case that has preoccupied the league for almost a year. Tagliabue, who was appointed by Commissioner Roger Goodell to handle the appeals, still found that three of the players engaged in conduct detrimental to the league. He said they participated in a performance pool that rewarded key plays — including hard tackles — that could merit fines. But he stressed that the team’s coaches were very much involved. “My affirmation of Commissioner Goodell’s findings could certainly justify the issuance of fines. However, this entire case has been contaminated by the coaches and others in the Saints’ organization,� the ruling said. Tagliabue oversaw a second round of player appeals to the league in connection with the cash-for-hits program run by former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams from 2009-2011. The players initially opposed his appointment.

Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma had been given a full-season suspension, while defensive end Will Smith, Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove each received shorter suspensions. Tagliabue cleared Fujita of conduct detrimental to the league. Saints quarterback Drew Brees offered his thoughts on Twitter: “Congratulations to our players for having the suspensions vacated. “Unfortunately, there are some things that can never be taken back.� None of the players sat out any games because of suspensions. “They have been allowed to play while appeals are pending, though Fujita is on injured reserve and Hargrove is not with a team. Shortly before the regular season, the initial suspensions were thrown out by an appeals panel created by the league’s collective bargaining agreement. Goodell then reissued them, with some changes,

and now those have been dismissed. Now, with the player suspensions overturned, the end could be near for a nearly 10-month dispute over how the NFL handled an investigation that covered three seasons and gathered about 50,000 pages of documents.

NFL’s response “We respect Mr. Tagliabue’s decision, which underscores the due process afforded players in NFL disciplinary matters,� the NFL said in a statement. “The decisions have made clear that the Saints operated a bounty program in violation of league rules for three years, that the program endangered player safety, and that the commissioner has the authority under the [NFL’s collective bargaining agreement] to impose discipline for those actions as conduct detrimental to the league. “Strong action was taken in this matter to protect player safety and ensure that bounties would be eliminated from football.�

NEW YORK — Kevin Youkilis is about to get a different look at the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry. The hard-nosed Youkilis, who helped personify Boston’s championship teams over the past decade, on Tuesday became the latest former Red Sox star to switch sides and land in Bronx. The free agent reached a deal that filled New York’s immediate need for a third baseman to fill in for injured Alex Rodriguez. The one-year contract for $12 million is pending a physical. A person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press about the agreement under condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made. Youkilis, who turns 34 in March, is expected to play third base while Rodriguez recovers from hip surgery. A-Rod plans to have the operation in mid-January and could be sidelined until the All-Star break or beyond. A three-time All-Star, Youkilis will get an early look at his old club. The Red

Sox are set to open next season at Yankee Stadium on April 1. Johnny Damon, Roger Clemens and Wade Boggs are among the Boston stars who wound up in pinstripes in recent times. Of course, the most famous player to make that move was Babe Ruth. For years, Youkilis was among the more popular players at Fenway Park — scruffy and intense, Boston fans loved how he battled the Yankees. Youkilis and Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain had their own feud that exemplified the ill will between the clubs — the inside fastballs that caused the trouble between them tapered off in recent seasons and now they’re set to become teammates. Minus Rodriguez for several months, the Yankees tried to find a fill-in. They made the offer to Youkilis last week at the baseball winter meetings. The agreement was first reported by Fox Sports. Eric Chavez, A-Rod’s backup for most of last season, joined Arizona last week. The Yankees consid-

game, with each scoring 10 points. Irina Lyons scored eight and Enani Rubio contributed six points to the Redskins’ win. Port Townsend (2-2, 3-2) will try for another league win tonight when it hosts Klahowya (0-3, 3-3).
