Evans’ Yi second after opening 73

In Columbus, Ga., Eunice Yi, of Evans, is in second place after the first round of the Georgia Top 60 Women’s Classic at Green Island Country Club.

The former Lakeside golfer, who will be a freshman on the Georgia Regents University team in the fall, shot 2-over-par 73.

She had three bogeys (Nos. 7, 8 and 15) and one birdie (No. 16).

Yi trails LaGrange’s Caitlin Watts, an Alabama-Birmingham golfer, by a shot in the 36-hole event.

Yi is coming off a third-place finish at last week’s Georgia Girls Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club.

Former Top 60 champion Laura Coble opened with 77. Fellow Augustan Mary Helen McElreath had 86.

Emily Kurey, of Alpharetta, the defending champion, had 78.

Brazil advances on a late header

In Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Paulinho sent Brazil to the Confederations Cup final with an 86th minute header to give the host nation a 2-1 victory over Uruguay, as anti-government protesters clashed with police near the Mineirao Stadium.

With the semifinal heading into extra time, Paulinho rose to meet Neymar’s corner and score the winner.

Paulinho and Neymar also combined to play a part in Brazil’s opener just before half time after Uruguay striker Diego Forlan’s penalty was saved early in the game.

Neymar brought down Paulinho’s high ball and, after his initial shot was saved by goalkeeper Fernando Muslera, Fred pounced on the loose ball to score.

Outside the stadium, protesters’ anger was directed at the government and police.

Bruins’ Bergeron still in hospital

Patrice Bergeron has a punctured lung and is still at a Boston-area hospital for observation.

The Bruins forward was admitted Monday night, after Boston lost to Chicago, 3-2, in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final at TD Garden – a defeat which ended the season.

Bergeron was already slowed by injuries headed into Game 6.

He was a question mark to even play due to a broken rib and torn cartilage.

After not participating in the morning skate Monday, he appeared during warmups and played in the loss.

In the first period, though, he suffered a separated shoulder.
