It also ended the Panthers' six-game unbeaten road streak (4-0-2). Washington, which meets the Panthers again Sunday in Miami at 1:30 p.m., improved to 15-10-4 with its second OT win in four days. "It was a real battle of a game," Murray said. "We didn't give up a lot of scoring chances. But when things don't go good ..." Things particularly didn't go well when Florida had the man-advantage. Though Florida did get one power-play score when Robert Svehla used a Steve Washburn screen to beat Olaf Kolzig at 5:26 of the third period to forge a 2-2 tie, the Panthers looked uncertain on their two extended power-play opportunities. "We had a tough time on the long ones," captain Scott Mellanby said. "Those two were probably our worst, I don't know why." Florida dominated the first period, outshooting Washington 11-2 and scoring first when Washburn tipped Laus' point shot past Kolzig at 7:23.

But the Panthers got a golden opportunity when the Caps' Mark Tinordi was called for interference at 14:48, then picked up an extra two minutes for complaining about the call to referee Terry Gregson. Florida had three shots on that chance, and missed on a fourth try when David Nemirovsky slipped a shot behind Kolzig that slid wide. "We moved the puck well, but we passed up some shooting chances," Murray said. "Give Washington credit; they defended them well." Washington went ahead 2-1 just eight seconds after Gord Murphy was sent off for interference early in the third. But Svehla's third goal of the season got that back. The Caps had most of the energy in the overtime, outshooting Florida 5-2 before Toms' game-winner. On the decisive play, Laus stepped up and tried to swat a rolling puck at the blue line, but he missed, Toms tipped it away from him and was off on a 2-on-1 with Dale Hunter against Rhett Warrener. He held the puck and fired it through John Vanbies-brouck's pads. Long shot puts Lynn By Chuck Otterson Palm Beach Post Staff Writer BOCA RATON - A 1-in-100 shot by Gareth Dunn gave Lynn a 1-0 victory over four-time national champion Southern Connecticut State in the NCAA Division II men's soccer semifinals Friday. Only 12:30 had elapsed when Dunn took a pass from Chris Hannaka and rifled a 45-yard, low line drive into the lower right corner of the net for the only goal in a showdown between the nation's top two Division II teams at McCusker Sports Complex. It was the first loss of the season and only the third in four years for the top-ranked Owls (21-1-1). "You get one of those once in a blue moon," said Dunn, a redshirt freshman from Sheffield, England. "I've tried it 100 times, and most of them went over the fence." Lynn (19-1), ranked second in the nation, plays fifth-ranked Cal State-Bakersfield (18-4) for the national championship at 1 p.m. Sunday. The Roadrunners advanced with a 2-0 victory over Truman State (16-6) in Friday's other semifinal. "We knew we wouldn't get many opportunities," said Lynn coach Shaun Pendleton, whose Knights won the NAIA title in 1991, "but we managed to create a few and made good on one." Hannaka, one of two Lynn seniors, said he was "just trying to change the point of attack" when he passed the ball to Dunn. 'I wasnt anticipating him taking a shot, but he had confidence in himself and made it." "There were a lot of people just outside the box," said Southern Connecticut goalkeeper Billy Gatti, who came into the match with a goals-against average of 0.37. "When I saw the ball coming, I dived for By Brian Biggane Palm Beach Post Staff Writer WASHINGTON - Friday was a day of celebration for the Washington Capitals. After more than 23 years in suburban Landover, Md., the Caps finally moved downtown to the new 19,700-seat MCI Center. And as luck would have it, the man who has spent more time than any other behind the Capitals' bench Bryan Murray was in town to share the moment. "It's a beautiful building," said Murray, a former Capitals coach who can recall the days when the team dressed in trailers outside the building most recently known as USAir Arena, and when they practiced on a rink in Mount Vernon that had a slope of several degrees, which resulted in water pooling at one end. Murray's most pertinent concern Friday was leading his Panthers against a team that hoped to get off to a successful start in its new home. "I'm sure there's going to be a feeling of, 'Let's make our home building an important building,' " Murray said. in a crowd in final Soccer it and touched it, but not enough." All-America defender Mike Petke said Lynn "had three or four guys up front. I was marking my man and didn't see the ball till the last second. He just blasted it through." "I figured one would go in eventually," said Dunn, Lynn's fourth-leading scorer with six goals and 18 points this season. "It was my lucky game. "I was going for the back post area. There were so many people in front of me, the keeper might have been screened. From that far out, you'll take the top corner or the bottom." The Owls dominated the second half and almost tied the score on a shot by All-America midfielder Itai Mor with 10:30 remaining. The ball hit the under side of the cross bar and came down on the goal line, where Matt Nelson made a spectacular diving save. "The ball was deflected and looked like it was going over the bar," Nelson said, "but it stayed in." Lynn's defense, led by All-America sweeper Darren War-ham, shut down the Owls' leading scorer, Renwick Hutson (17-640). "Anybody that scores more than 10 or 15 goals a season, you have to respect them," said Warham, a 25-year-old junior from Ashington, England. "It's a huge disappointment," said Mor, one of five Israelis on the Owls' roster. Lynn 1, S. Connecticut 0 S. Conn. State Lynn 0 0 - 1 0 - L-Dunn 6 (Hannaka, Krlstensen).

Panthers notes "They'll try to establish that fact early. So it won't be just-another game from their point of view." Of the more than 300 players who have worn the Caps' sweater, 44 were expected to participate in the opening ceremonies. Dvorak returns: Panthers right winger Radek Dvorak ended a 15game absence-when he returned on a line with' Dave Gagner and Johan Gar-penlov. As a precaution, Dvorak wore a bandage on the left wrist he broke Oct. 30 against Ottawa. He had no goals and two" assists in his 10 games played. Murray made room for Dvorak by sitting Jody Hull, who had been scoreless in his previ-" ous eight games. Meanwhile,' Ryan Johnson, who was called' up earlier in the week, made his-NHL debut in place of Kirk' Muller, who was completing a two-game suspension for high-sticking. Boxing Holmes wins I with TKO The Associated Press POMPANO BEACH Keith Holmes successfully defended his World Boxing Council middleweight title with an llth-round technical knockout of Paul Vaden on Friday night. ' Holmes dominated the scheduled 12-round bout by connecting repeatedly with a lead right jab and a followup left. The fight-ending punch was Holmes' right hook to Vaden'schin. , Although Vaden, a former International Boxing Federation junior-middleweight champion, reached his feet at the count of six, Vaden's cornermen felt their fighter had taken enough punishment. Referee Brian Garry officially stopped the bout at 1:11 of the 11th round. "I was baiting him the whole fight with the right hand," Holmes said. "It was just a question of me setting him up." - For Holmes, of Washington D.C., it was only his second title defense since winning it in March, 1996. His last bout was a decision' over Richie Woodhall in October 1996. Holmes (30-1, 20 KOs) over-;, powered Vaden (27-2) in the third: round when he landed a left to Vaden's chin, sending him to the?, canvas. Holmes then connected!; with a right jab and a left uppercutf which floored Vaden a second time' in the round. ; ; BDe La Hoya still draws crowd: Oscar De La Hoya wijf make $6 million for his title fal fense against Wilfredo Rivera of Puerto Rico tonight in Atlantic City, NJ.
