Soggy field keeps semifinals delayed

Wet field conditions Thursday postponed the semifinals of the Class 3 District 10 boys soccer tournament at Cosmopolitan Park for the second straight day.

Rock Bridge will play Jefferson City at 5:30 p. m. today and Hickman will play Helias at 7. The winners play in the championship game, which is set for 6 p.m. Saturday.


The Tigers lost in the opening round of the Big 12 Tournament Wednesday in San Antonio, falling 2-1 to Colorado.

Colorado midfielder Fran Munnelly scored the winning goal on a penalty kick in overtime, ending the Tigers’ season.

After MU midfielder Amber Swinehart scored to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead 10 minutes into the second half, the Buffaloes scored on a deflected shot with eight seconds left to send the game into overtime.

The Tigers finish the season with a 9-10-1 record.


Pitcher Woody Williams filed for free agency Thursday after the team told his agent it will decline his $8 million option and pay him a $900,000 buyout.

Williams, 38, went 11-8 with a 4.18 ERA last season, helping St. Louis to the best regular-season record in the major leagues and the NL pennant before the Boston Red Sox swept the Cardinals in the World Series.

Williams, a right-hander, had the fewest wins of any member of the rotation during the regular season, but he wound up being St. Louis’ No. 1 starter in the postseason because of Chris Carpenter’s arm injury and Matt Morris’ inconsistency.

The Cardinals won 16 of Williams’ final 19 regular-season starts in 2004. He won twice in the playoffs but lost Game 1 of the World Series. He had a 2.53 ERA in 17 starts in 2002, then went 18-9 with a 3.87 ERA in 2003.


If Steve Spurrier decides to coach again, it won’t be at his alma mater.

Spurrier withdrew his name from consideration Thursday to replace Ron Zook, saying his time at Florida has passed.
