GIRLS’ LACROSSE: Anna Woodward had four goals and Kayla Bolton made 14 saves as the fourth-seeded Warriors (11-4) defeated fifth-seeded Maranacook/Winthrop (9-6) 8-6 in a Class C quarterfinal in Wells.

Summer Sullivan added a goal and three assists, and Cali Leighton and Jess Palmer also scored for Wells.

Lily Caban had two goals and Mavia Lenane stopped 13 shots for Maranacook/Winthrop.

The game was a continuation of Saturday’s game, which was suspended due to weather.


NECBL: Matthew Miceli scored Jeremiah Jenkins on a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning to break a 2-2 tie and the Sanford Mainers went on to defeat the visiting Upper Valley Nighthawks 3-2 at Goodall Park.


The Mainers (2-3) snapped a three-game slide, and the Nighthawks are 3-2.

Nicholas Roselli scored on a single by Devan Bade in the first and was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the fifth to score Simmi Whitehill for Sanford’s other runs.

Cody Bowker pitched six solid innings for the win. Bowker struck out five, walked one and allowed five hits and both of Upper Valley’s runs.

Chris Gallagher allowed just one hit over the seventh and eighth innings before Zach Johnston pitched a perfect ninth for the save.


U.S. MEN:  Just four players who appeared for the U.S. at last year’s World Cup are on a largely junior varsity roster announced for the CONCACAF Gold Cup, including just one regular starter: goalkeeper Matt Turner.


The 23-man roster selected by new interim coach B.J. Callaghan for the championship of the Confederation of North and Central America and the Caribbean has three others who saw limited World Cup time: forwards Jesús Ferreira and Jordan Morris, and right back DeAndre Yedlin. Three additional players were on the World Cup roster without getting into a match: goalkeeper Sean Johnson, defender Aaron Long and midfielder Cristian Roldan.

The U.S. opens against Jamaica at Chicago on June 24, plays Curaçao, St. Kitts and Nevis, Guyana or Sint Maarten four days later at St. Louis and closes the first round against Nicaragua at Charlotte, North Carolina, on July 2. The final is July 16 at Inglewood, California.


STUTTGART OPEN: Lorenzo Sonego eliminated defending champion Matteo Berrettini, beating the Italian 6-1, 6-2 at Stuttgart, Germany.

Lorenzo Musetti defeated Croatian qualifier Borna Gojo 7-6 (4), 6-3, and Jiri Lehecka rallied to beat Marcos Giron 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Also, Richard Gasquet defeated American qualifier Christopher Eubanks 7-6 (2), 6-4 and Yosuke Watanuki ousted Spanish wild card Feliciano Lopez with a 7-6 (5), 6-3 win.


NOTTINGHAM OPEN: Top-seeded Maria Sakkari won her opening match and former champion Donna Vekic also advanced to the last 16 at the grass-court tournament at Nottingham, ENgland.

Sakkari, the No. 8-ranked Greek, beat Xiyu Wang of China 6-2, 7-6 (6) after Vekic of Croatia defeated Cristina Bucsa of Spain 6-2, 4-6, 6-1.


SOFTBALL: Just days after leading Oklahoma’s softball team to its third straight national title, pitcher Jordy Bahl announced on social media that she is transferring and heading back to her home state of Nebraska.

Bahl is from Papillion, a suburb of Omaha. She said in the post that she’s homesick and wants to help grow the sport in a state she feels is overlooked at all levels of softball.


THE ATHLETIC: The Athletic, a subscription sports outlet owned by The New York Times, is laying off about 4% of its newsroom staff as part of reorganization efforts, the company confirmed.

The job cuts will impact nearly 20 journalists of The Athletic’s 450-person newsroom. In addition to the layoffs, more than 20 additional reporters from the San Francisco-based outlet will be moved to new assignments, The New York Times reported.

The New York Times Co. bought The Athletic for $550 million in January 2022, marking one of the news company’s largest-ever acquisitions.
