FC Tucson beat BYU 1-0 on the road Tuesday night, to extend its conference win streak to five matches.
The victory moved the soccer club into first place in the Southwest Division of the PDL and was its fifth straight shutout against a division foe. The last meaningful goal against Tucson came on May 5 - 455 minutes ago.
Kevin King scored the goal in the 32nd minute on a cross from Canyon del Oro grad Donny Toia.
FC Tucson (5-1) closes out its two-game road trip against the Ogden Outlaws on Thursday and will face the L.A. Misioneros at home on June 14.
Miller wins free-throw shooting contest
Arizona Wildcats basketball coach Sean Miller has won the "Shots from the Heart" charity free-throw contest, beating Detroit's Ray McCallum 55-43 in the final round.
Miller missed only one of his 25 shots in the final round, and McCallum missed four in shooting conducted on each coach's home campus. Shots count for progressively more points as the round continues. An 88.5 percent free-throw shooter as a player at Pittsburgh in the late 1980s, Miller made 96.7 percent of his free throws throughout the contest.
Last season, Miller finished second to Iowa State's Fred Hoiberg in the contest, which benefits the American Heart Association on behalf of late coach Skip Prosser.
"I'm very honored and also proud to have won the Shots From the Heart contest in 2012," Miller said in a statement. "Like I've said before, anything that benefits Skip Prosser and his legacy is something we want to be a part of."
NFL referees: We didn't threaten to strike
NEW YORK - The NFL Referees Association is disputing a claim by the league that the officials threatened to take a strike vote after their contract expired.
Mike Arnold, counsel for the officials, said Tuesday that claim is "patently false."
"The NFLRA has never threatened to strike," Arnold said. "After repeated references by the NFL during negotiations regarding its plans to obtain replacement officials, the NFLRA briefed its members at its annual meeting on April 21, 2012. No strike vote was taken at the meeting.
"In fact the NFLRA's directive to its membership was to prepare for the season and to perform each and every task assigned to them both before and after CBA expiration. This continues to be the position of the NFLRA."
