First goal

CAPE TOWN, South Africa - Mariah Williams' first international goal has helped Australia beat host South Africa 4-1 and draw their three-Test women's hockey series. Williams' goal put the Hockeyroos at 2-0 up following an earlier strike by Jodie Shulz before Kellie White and Georgia Nanscawen completed the commanding win with 2 goals.

Missed out

SAN DIEGO, California - The usual Torrey Pines magic was missing for Tiger Woods as the world number one missed the secondary cut at the US PGA Tour's Farmers Insurance Open. On a Torrey Pines South Course where he has won eight titles — seven US PGA Tour trophies and the 2008 US Open — the 14-time major champion staggered to a seven-over par 79.

Crucial win

MILAN - Captain Francesco Totti scored a late penalty to cap a crucial 3-1 win for Roma at Verona to close the gap on Serie A leaders Juventus to six points yesterday. Elsewhere, Giampaolo Pazzini scored a precious winner for struggling AC Milan to seal 2-1 win away to Cagliari, while city rivals Inter were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Catania.

Title race

EDINBURGH - The relentless Celtic march on retaining the title continued yesterday as the Glasgow giants sealed their 11th victory in a row with three late goals in a 4-0 win over Hibernian at Easter Road. Victory sent the Hoops 15 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership as they extended their unbeaten start to 22 games and kept their ninth consecutive clean sheet.

Korda victory

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas - Jessica Korda has won the LPGA Tour's season-opening Bahamas Classic for her second tour title, holing a six-foot birdie putt on the final hole to beat Stacy Lewis by a stroke. Korda closed with a seven-under-par 66 for a 19-under 273 total on Atlantis Resort's Ocean Club course. Lewis parred the final four holes — two of them par 5s — for a 66.

New signing

LONDON - Stoke City manager Mark Hughes said yesterday that he expects to sign Peter Odemwingie on loan from Cardiff City, with Kenwyne Jones moving in the opposite direction. Nigeria international Odemwingie, 32, joined Cardiff from West Bromwich Albion last September, but he has had to play second fiddle to Fraizer Campbell.

Last Test

ADELAIDE - As they have all summer, Australian captain Michael Clarke and his English counterpart Alastair Cook are again flying in different directions. Clarke flies to South Africa, while Cook flies home after admitting his English team choked in the fifth and final one-dayer in Adelaide on Sunday night. Chasing 218 to win, the tourists crumbled to 212 all out.

Striker back

BERLIN - Klaas Jan Huntelaar scored on his return after five months out with injury in Schalke's 3-0 win at Hamburger SV in the Bundesliga yesterday. The Dutch striker opened the scoring in the 34th minute when he got between two defenders to head Jefferson Farfan's cross past Hamburg goalkeeper Jaroslav Drobny.
