Ching's goal enough for Dynamo
HOUSTON » Kamehameha graduate Brian Ching scored his third goal of the season to lead the Houston Dynamo to a 1-0 win over the New York Red Bulls last night.
Ching scored in the 68th minute, and Tony Caig made the lead stand up with three saves to earn his first career MLS shutout.
Houston (3-3-5, 14) has rebounded from an 0-2-3 start to go 3-1-2 in its last six games. New York (3-3-3, 9 points) has lost two in a row after a five-game unbeaten streak. The Red Bulls had two chances to tie late, but Danleigh Borman's shot in the 89th minute went wide left, and Chris Leitch's header in the 93rd minute went high.
Kaufman, Weaver sixth
Hawaii's Amber Kaufman and Meghan Weaver placed sixth in their events at the NCAA West Regional Track and Field Championships yesterday in Northridge, Calif.
Kaufman cleared 5 feet, 91/4 inches to tie for sixth in the high jump. Teammate Emily Sheppard placed ninth after clearing 5-71/4.
Weaver posted her best finish in four regional appearances in the shot put with a throw of 51-21/4.
Annett Wichmann finished ninth in the javelin at 151-8.
UH tallied 7.5 points, good for 18th in the team standings.
Wichmann has already qualified for the NCAA Championships in the heptathlon. Kaufman is also likely headed to the meet set for June 11-14 in Des Moines, Iowa, thanks to her gold-medal performance at the Western Athletic Conference championships.
Combine draws 271 athletes
From near and far they came on a Saturday morning, football players prepared - in most cases - to show the world what they can do.
The seventh annual Pacific Islands Athletic Alliance football combine drew 271 athletes to Saint Louis' athletic complex. From Division I prospects to little-known underclassmen, they hit the weight room and the field as combine officials wielded stopwatches and clipboards.
Two athletes who didn't participate, Punahou's Manti Te'o and Dalton Hilliard, were able volunteers. So were recent graduates Solomon Koehler (Castle) and Mykenna Ikehara (Kamehameha).
Te'o already has 29 scholarship offers. Hilliard, at last count, has nine.
