As soon as the kick left his foot, La Puente Bishop Amat kicker Alexander Ragsdale said he knew the extra-point attempt was going through the uprights. And when it did, the Lancers swarmed the field Friday at Kiefer Stadium. The extra point secured a 24-23 overtime victory over No. 4 St. Bonaventure, a feat Coach Steve Hagerty had said earlier in the week would compare to the "Miracle on Ice." The win ends St. Bonaventure's (4-1) 14-game winning streak that extends to last season and gives the Lancers (4-0)

In a game that featured six lead changes and four ties, No. 3 Ventura St. Bonaventure prevailed, 42-41, in overtime against No. 17 Encino Crespi -- an outcome that wasn't decided until the last kick.

On the previous possession, Crespi running back Rhasheed Johnson ran in for a one-yard touchdown, but Patrick McDonough 's extra-point attempt sailed wide left.

The knee of Troy Polamalu folded the wrong way, and the normally sure hands of Hines Ward lost their grip. But the Pittsburgh Steelers were not without options Thursday in the NFL opener. They still had the poise of Ben Roethlisberger and the foot of Jeff Reed. After Roethlisberger drove the Steelers into position, Reed clinched a 13-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans with a 33-yard field goal with 10 minutes 28 seconds remaining in overtime. In a bruising and often sloppy debut -- one that could cost the Steelers star safety Polamalu for three weeks or longer -- Pittsburgh's quarterback showed flashes of the composure he displayed in last season's Super Bowl.

It's not really news when a bill fails to become a law in Sacramento. In this age of partisan gridlock, plenty of good ideas are never enacted. Still, one bill that made it to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's desk last week, only to be killed by his veto, is worth looking at for what it tells us about how hard it is to clean out even antiquated moral rot, so long as powerful interests profit from it. The bill, written by San Joaquin Valley Democratic...

Robert Hughes scored on a one-yard run in overtime, safeties Harrison Smith and Kyle McCarthy jarred the ball loose from Washington receiver D'Andre Goodwin near the goal line on fourth and 19, and Notre Dame defeated Washington, 37-30, Saturday. It was the fourth consecutive game decided in the last 60 seconds for the Fighting Irish, the last three of which were victories. The Irish (4-1) stayed in it with two goal-line stands in the second half. The first was late in the third quarter when the Irish stopped the Huskies (2-3)

I agree with Erik J. Madsen (TV Times, Feb. 14) when he wrote about the hour delay of the golf tournament because of the basketball game going into overtime on NBC. Why can't the networks show sports events as scheduled and give overtime game scores as updates? This always happens to golf, like last Sunday (Feb. 7) when the Doral Open was delayed for 35 minutes because of an overtime basketball game. A.S. Engce, Whittier

If the Ducks are to have any hope of returning to the playoffs this spring they're going to need a lot more gutsy performances like the one they turned in Wednesday at Honda Center, where they beat the Carolina Hurricanes, 3-2, in overtime. And they're probably going to need a lot more breaks like the one that set up Corey Perry's game-winning goal. Perry inexplicably avoided a tripping penalty after sending Carolina's Jussi Jokinen to the ice two minutes into the extra period.
