Razorbacks finish off record season

John Tweedy got the only score Cross Creek would need in the first quarter Saturday night, and the Razorbacks' defense made it stand up in a 7-0 win at Richmond Academy.

The Razorbacks (4-6, 2-4 Region 3-AAA North) completed the best season in their brief history by posting back-to-back shutouts to end the year and held their first opponent ever under 100 yards in total offense.

  • Jeffrey Walker continued his torrid run for Jefferson County, scoring four times in the Warriors' 42-17 victory over Benedictine. It puts the Warriors (7-3, 4-1 Region 3-AAA South) into a mini-playoff Monday night with Burke County and South Effingham.

    Kenseth holds off Busch at Aaron's

    In Hampton, Ga., Nextel Cup regular Matt Kenseth held off an emotional Kyle Busch in a two-lap sprint to the finish, winning the Busch race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

    Kenseth had quite a day. After his Busch victory, he went back on the track and won the final International Race of Champions event, clinching the IROC series championship.

    Kenseth was leading the Aaron's 312 when a crash in turn two took out Reed Sorenson and Clint Bowyer with less than three laps to go.

    Kenseth, the 2003 Nextel Cup champion, led four times for a total of 58 laps while claiming his third Busch victory of the year and 17th of his career.

    Series leader Martin Truex rallied to finish ninth after getting caught up in a four-car wreck late in the race. He still has a 176-point lead over Busch, a commanding margin with only three races left.


    Dolphins file suit against Williams

    In Miami, the Dolphins have filed a lawsuit in federal court against running back Ricky Williams, who an arbitrator ruled owes the team more than $8.6 million for breaching his contract.

    Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene would not say Saturday if the lawsuit was related to the arbitrator's ruling last month.

    "It's in the judicial system, and we cannot comment further," Greene said.

    The suit was filed Friday, and was not entered into the court's online registry by Saturday.

    Williams left the Dolphins shortly before training camp because he disagreed with the NFL over a disputed drug test. He is seeking to return to the league.

    Williams rushed for 3,225 yards in two seasons with the Dolphins, including a league-best 1,853 yards in 2002.

    Miller injured his non-shooting hand in Indiana's preseason finale against Denver on Friday night. Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said after the game that Miller would miss four to six weeks.
