RiverHawks are dealt payback

In Fayetteville, N.C., one day after the Augusta RiverHawks routed Fayetteville at home, the FireAntz returned the favor.

Josh McQuade scored twice as Fayetteville roughed up the RiverHawks 5-1 on Sunday.

Chris Leveille and Chris Rebernik both had a goal and an assist for the FireAntz, which lost to the RiverHawks 7-2 on Saturday night.

Jesse Echternach had the lone goal for Augusta.

Jon Olthuis allowed three goals in the first period and took the loss.

The RiverHawks had won their previous four meetings with the FireAntz.



London to mark 200 days to go

Britain’s prime minister and senior officials will hold a special Cabinet meeting today at the Olympic Park to mark 200 days until the London Games.

David Cameron and other officials will discuss how to make the most of the Games and the Olympic legacy for the nation.

Most of the eight permanent Olympic venues have secured their future ownership, officials said, meaning that the facilities are expected to continue creating hundreds of jobs and tourism opportunities for locals well after the Olympic Games are over.

The operator of the Aquatics Center, for example, said the venue will become affordable to all and expects 800,000 community users a year.

One of the main goals for London officials in charge of the Olympics is that the event would regenerate run-down East London into a vibrant community.

The Games are scheduled to open on July 27 and end with a closing ceremony on Aug. 12.



Liverpool sorry for racial abuse

Liverpool apologized Sunday to the opposing player who was racially abused during an FA Cup match but stressed that such actions “do not represent our fans.”

Oldham defender Tom Adeyemi was reduced to tears by insults from fans during Friday’s 5-1 loss at Liverpool and had to be comforted by teammates and opposing players toward the end of the third-round match.

Merseyside police arrested a 20-year-old man from Aintree on Saturday on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offense and released him Sunday pending further inquiries. Adeyemi has spoken to police, according to the players’ union.
