Sir Alex Ferguson's last match as manager at Old Trafford, Manchester's famed "Theatre of Dreams," ended the only way it could have Sunday - with a Manchester United victory. Rio Ferdinand volleyed home the tie-breaking goal in the 86th minute to lift the Red Devils over Swansea, 2-1, sending the 71-year Ferguson bounding out of his dugout seat, pounding his fist in the air. Javier Hernandez scored United's first goal in the 39th minute before Michu equalized for Swansea 10 minutes later.

I ndependence and freedom aren't just empty words to the members of the Red Devils, who have learned the hard way that musical freedom isn't any easier to win than the political or personal variety. Although it has been four years since the Red Devils arrived as one of the most exciting bands on the Southern California music scene, the group is still waiting to cut its first album.

It took Mexican striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez a mere 36 seconds on Sunday to turn English champion Chelsea's hopes of retaining its title into so much dust. Hernandez's goal, curled past goalkeeper Petr Cech and into the lower left corner of the net, set Manchester United on its way to a 2-1 victory at Old Trafford that all but sealed the Premier League championship for Sir Alex Ferguson's team. It was the former Chivas de Guadalajara forward's 20th goal in his debut season in Europe.

The King King nightclub has seen a lot of blues/rock/pop history pass through on Monday nights. That's because the Red Devils have spent much of the last three years playing their rock 'n' blues hybrid in a weekly gig that's moved some famous fans to join them onstage.

The Red Devils have the fundamentals down cold when it comes to mid-'50s Chicago and Texas grind-style blues/R&B. But at the Palomino on Friday, the book remained open on a larger question: Can the L.A. quintet, which emerged from a Monday night residency at Hollywood's King King club, transcend its jamming roots and revivalist nature? And do they even want to?

Blow the dust off those archives. That's almost how long you have to go back to trace the last time a Sweetwater boys' basketball team lost four consecutive games. After Bonita Vista smothered Sweetwater, 78-56, in a Metro Conference game in National City Wednesday night, Red Devil Coach David Ybarra scratched his chin and took a moment to think. "Hum," he said. "Probably at least 18 years.

The Notebook: One of the most impressive things about J.J. Flannigan's 1,212 yards and 16 touchdowns through six games is that he is doing it behind an inexperienced line at Pomona. Last season, when he had 1,965 yards and 18 touchdowns, the Red Devils sent three lineman to the University of Arizona on scholarships: Reggie Gaddis, Keith May and tight end Aaron Prisock. If not for his legs, Flannigan's best quality would have to be his attitude.

Watching the scintillating British drama "Red Devils" at Theatre/Theater is like being plopped, face first, onto the rutty streets of Manchester. The texture of the writing and the acting catches the gray pallor in the air, the city's narrow horizons, the giddy hysteria of stunted lives. We're in the company of four soccer-crazed young women who manage to wrangle tickets to the Cup Final where their beloved Manchester United Red Devils are waging a ferocious battle.

Anybody remember the Los Angeles Red Devils? Long before the Lakers, even before the NBA, the Red Devils were Los Angeles' professional basketball team. They didn't last long, but they were good. They went 13-3 in their short season of 1946-47 and split two games with George Mikan and the Chicago American Gears, champions of the National Professional Basketball League, forerunner of the NBA.

Who says religion is dead in Britain? This industrial city is full of true believers who pack their chosen temples, sing their anthems and stone the occasional heretic. What does it matter that the houses of worship are sports stadiums, the saints (and sinners) are strapping lads in jerseys and shorts, and followers live and die by goals and penalty kicks? But there's trouble in paradise, at least for fans of Manchester United, the world-famous team that's been home to stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo.

There are spider webs not nearly as entangled or twisted as the strange odyssey involving left-handed pitcher Martin Villanueva of Los Angeles Roosevelt. In January, Villanueva, a two-time All-City selection, dropped out of school and left for Mexico after being told a contract he had signed with the Mexico City Red Devils made him ineligible for high school sports. The Red Devils play in the Mexican summer league and are under the jurisdiction of minor league baseball. On Feb.

Managers Lou Piniella and Terry Francona were among six members of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and Boston Red Sox suspended Friday for their roles in two bench-clearing brawls last weekend. Piniella and Francona were suspended three games apiece and fined an undisclosed amount for their teams' actions during Boston's 11-3 victory Sunday at St. Petersburg, Fla. The game had six ejections and two hit batters. Boston starter Bronson Arroyo was given the harshest penalty, a six-game suspension.

Freshman Noe Casillas had never played football before this season, but he lined up for his first field goal attempt Friday night. In the rain. On homecoming. With the game on the line and a league title at stake. Casillas barely made a 25-yarder with 2:21 remaining, but it gave Pomona a 17-14 Valle Vista League victory over Covina Northview. The Red Devils clinched a tie for their first league title since 1990 when they were in the Montview League.

My affair with radishes began only months ago after visiting a friend whose kitchen garden would make even Peter Rabbit's fastidious Mr. McGregor proud. From somewhere within the neat rows of lettuce, grand artichoke stalks and ambitious tomato vines, my friend pulled up a radish grown plump beneath the soil.

Time was running out on Sweetwater High--time and sole possession of first place in the Metro Conference boys' basketball standings. Southwest High had an 11-point lead with four minutes left Friday night, and it appeared to be enough with the clock, the momentum and a capacity crowd of 1,000-plus on its side. Not quite. Sweetwater, the defending Division I section champion, became possessed.

Since he started his athletic career at Pomona High, Johnny McWilliams has never spent a lot of time relaxing during the summer. For the most part, summer vacation for McWilliams has consisted of heavy doses of basketball tournaments, leagues, camps and practices. This summer, as McWilliams prepares to enter his senior year in high school, the schedule is a little more hectic than usual, a little more busy than for most high school athletes.
