QMJHL: Stephen MacAulay scored with 2:52 left to give the Saint John Sea Dogs a 6-5 win and a sweep of the Lewiston Maineiacs in the best-of-seven semifinal series at Lewiston.

Stefan Fournier, Pierre-Oliver Morin, Oliver Dame-Malka and Cameron Critchlow each had a goal and an assist for Lewiston, which opened a 3-0 lead in the first 5:05.


BOSTON MARATHON: Geoffrey Mutai’s time of 2 hours, 3 minutes, 2 seconds in last week’s Boston Marathon does not qualify for the world record, race officials conceded even as they sought to develop new rules that would better account for the difficulty of the hilly course.

IAAF and USA Track and Field rules say the Boston course is ineligible for world or American records because it is too straight and too downhill.

Boston Athletic Association Executive Director Tom Grilk had said he would apply to have the records certified anyway, which would have forced the governing bodies to reject an unprecedented performance on the world’s signature marathon course. But after meeting with an IAAF official not identified in the BAA announcement, race officials decided not to file the paperwork.
