  • North-South bittersweet for some

    Many of the North-South All-Stars lining up for the basketball or football games this weekend acknowledge that it’ll be a bittersweet moment for them.

    Some may go on to play on the college level in 2011-12. Most will take part in at least some type of organized competition in the future. But at the very least, the North-South games mean the end of one major chapter in their lives.

    TAOS — While Las Vegas Little League’s 11-12 All-Stars softball team celebrates its newly won District 4 championship (and ticket to state), the LVLL and La Plaza 11-12 baseball teams were on track for a shot at their own title.

    The LVLL 11-12 girls, managed by Ramon Vialpando, defeated Taos 13-3 on Tuesday for their second win over the hometown favorites in the tournament.

    MOENCHENGLADBACH, Germany — Abby Wambach sure knows how to deliver.

    A goal, a promise and soon, she hopes, a World Cup title.

    The U.S. women had fans on edge once again until Wambach broke a tense tie with her header off a corner kick in the 79th minute Wednesday. Alex Morgan scored three minutes later to seal a 3-1 semifinal victory over France, and the Americans let loose with a party that carried all the way across the Atlantic Ocean.

  • Shootout thriller: U.S. tops...

    DRESDEN, Germany  — Any time she caught a teammate’s eye, Abby Wambach held up one finger. It had nothing to do with the shrinking numbers on the clock.

    “I kept saying, ‘All it takes is one chance. It takes one second to score a goal,’” Wambach said.
    Regulation. Overtime. Stoppage time. Penalty kicks. Through it all, the Americans never lost faith they’d pull it out.
    Did they ever.
