Soccer

The Women's United Soccer Association, including Springstead alum Jennifer O'Sullivan of the New York Power, begins play this weekend.

O'Sullivan's playing time may be limited because of a rib injury and the addition of three Olympic-level defenders to the Power roster.

But local fans will have a chance to see that for themselves, as the Power's game with Atlanta will be telecast 12 p.m. Saturday on TNT.

Baseball

PITTSBURGH -- Hernando alum Bronson Arroyo beat the Houston Astros for the second time in a week Wednesday, tossing two innings of spotless relief as the Pittsburgh Pirates won 8-4 at PNC Park.

Arroyo (2-1) threw strikes with 11 of his 16 pitches and struck out one batter. His earned-run average fell to 3.86.

Golf

Don Spencer (plus-10) and Marcia Froh (plus-13) won their gender groups April 12 in the Wellington Mixed Golf League weekly competition.

Ed Norris (plus-8) was second among men, followed by Gerry Olesen (plus-7), Phil Froh (plus-6), Dave Sullivan (plus-5) and Jack Harvie (plus-4).

Anne Ferguson (plus-12) took second in the women's group, ahead of Maria Sullivan and Isabel McDonald (plus-9).
