But the devil is really in the details: Jeanette Roberts is a 35- landicapper. She has been playing for only four years. And she already had one hole-in-one to her credit. The extraordinary string began March 12, when Roberts aced the par-3, 75-yard third hole at Granite Bay Golf Club with a pitching jwedge.

TODAY'S ANSWER: Donna Andrews. i f On the air On television By Paul Lomartire Palm Beach Post Staff Writer TAMPA - The Miami Fusion staggered to the first win in its short history, a 1-0 overtime shootout victory against the Tampa Bay Mutiny. With the score locked 0-0 after 90 minutes, the Fusion (1-2) have now played three games without scoring a goal in regulation. "We needed this so these guys keep believing in themselves," said Fusion first-year coach Carlos Cordoba. "There could be no relaxing after losing two at home." MLS tiebreakers have teams take turns starting from the 35-yard-line and shooting on the goalkeeper in five seconds. After four rounds against the Mutiny's Sweden international goalkeeper Thomas Ravelli, the Fusion led 3-2 on goals by Henry Gutierrez, John Maessner and David Vaudreuil. Fusion rookie Leo Cullen sealed the win when he scored on a penalty kick. Referee Brian Hall award the kick when Cullen was tripped as he has dribbled past the goalkeeper. "I thought I wouldn't be in the top five shooters," said Cullen as he left the field, Ravelli's mistake a fresh grass stain on the left shoulder of his white road uniform. "I wanted to relax and shut out the crowd and forget we needed that (goal) to win," Cullen said. "I Palm Beach Post Wire Services Reggie White, a defensive end for the Green Bay Packers who usually preaches harmony, accomplished the opposite with a sermon to Wisconsin lawmakers that civil rights groups Thursday said amounted to gay- and race-bashing. White did not back off Thursday from his remarks in the Wisconsin state Legislature on Wednesday that left some legislators cringing and some activists criticizing him. "I didn't start a ministry to please everybody," White, the Green Bay Packers star, said in a telephone interview. "I'm getting tired of people patting me on the back, anyway." White, an ordained fundamentalist Christian minister, admitted he was feeling the fallout from his comments, which included referring to homosexuality as "one of the biggest sins in the Bible.' White, an ordained minister, called homosexuality a sin and spoke in racial stereotypes, claiming blacks were gifted worshippers, whites were good at tapping into money and American Indians weren't enslaved because they knew the territory and "how to sneak up on people."

B Boxing: WBC Champion Lennox Louis is a 12-1 favorite to beat Shannon Briggs in Convention Hall on Saturday in a 12-round match to be televised by HBO. The telecast will begin at 10 p.m., with the fight to start about 10:25. Lewis (32-1, 26 knockouts) goes into his third defense in his second reign as champ off a first-round knockout of Andrew Golota. Briggs (30-1, 24 knockouts) got in line for a title bid with a highly disputed 12-round majority decision over George Foreman on Nov. 22 at Atlantic City Wrestler "Stone Cold" Steve Austin asked Mike Tyson last month if he was man enough to take him on in the ring. The former heavyweight champion and the wrestler met in the ring on City Hall Plaza in Boston during a promotional workout for the World Wrestling Federation's WrestleMania. Tyson was booed. Horse racing: Event of the Year, winner of the El Camino Real Derby, was made the 8-5 favorite for Saturday's $600,000 Jim Beam Stakes at Turfway Park in Florence, Kentucky. The colt will be ridden by regular rider Russell Baze and start from post position No. 2. "Everybody's always talking about the kid from college," Cordoba said. "Today he got his diploma as a man." The nationally televised game held the crowd to 6,036 and wasn't a highlight film for either team. Both the Mutiny and Fusion spent 90 minutes racking up bad passes and near misses. "Of the three games, this was not our best," Cordoba said, "we can play better." The string of missed chances started early. In the sixth minute a Fusion free kick found its way to the foot of midfielder Wade Webber. He buried a shot high over the goal in a three-story stage set up for a George Strait concert on Saturday. In the 12th minute, Fusion forward Jerry Tamashiro found himself behind the Mutiny defense, but his shot fired straight into Ravelli. It went like that the entire game, but no one wearing Fusion blue was complaining about the win. The Mutiny outshot the Fusion 15-7. "Are you kidding, no way," said Fusion defender Cle Kooi-man, "we got our first win and now we can take a deep breath." Goalkeeper Jeff Kassar got his first victory in net for the Fusion.
