After a scoreless first half in which they had the better chances, the American picked up the pace in the second. Left defender David Regis delivered a cross to the box in the 56th minute that an open Mathis headed over the goal. Two minutes later, Earnie Stewart cracked a 30-yarder on frame that Lonnis knocked down and grabbed the rebound. Wolff was denied from the left front of the net by Lonnis in the 59th minute. "Obviously it's a great win," U.S. coach Bruce Arena said. "I was really pleased the way our guys kept their composure. We realized that the Costa Ricans came in and probably were going to be happy with a point (a draw). "(The Costa Ricans) did a good job de­ fensively and had a lot of numbers behind the ball, and they were tough to break down. We talked at halftime about, simply, we've got to jump on any kind of chance that we've got." The U.S. defense was solid throughout, with Agoos and Carlos Llamosa in the middle and Regis and Steve Cherundolo outside combining with midfielder Chris Armas to limit the Costa Ricans' opportunities against goalkeeper Kasey Keller. When called upon, Keller was in the right spot. • "Positioning was the key to today's game," said Keller, who came up with several key stops in the closing minutes as Costa Rica increased its pressure. The victory now puts the U.S. five points ahead of Costa Rica, Mexico and Jamaica, which all have four. Mexico played Trinidad & Tobago to a 1-1 draw Wednesday, as did Jamaica against Honduras. SPORTS DIGEST Judge rules on Thomas estate By The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A judge dealing with the estate of Derrick Thomas has ruled the late football star was the father of four children besides three others for whom his paternity already had been established. THOMAS Thomas, a linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs, died last year of complications after being injured in a traffic accident that left him partially paralyzed. Thomas, who was not married, had no will, and his heirs are being determined by the Jackson County probate court. At a hearing Monday, attorneys for the Thomas estate challenged the paternity of four of the children, two living in Florida and two others in Kansas City The two mothers of those four children testified that Thomas readily accepted the children, supported them financially and treated them as family Judge John A. Borron Jr. made his ruling almost immediately after testimony by a parade of witnesses. "I'm very relieved," said Terrye Jenkins, who lives in the Kansas City area. "I knew that was my kids' father." Even Edith Morgan, Thomas' mother and a representative of the estate, testified Thomas supported them "all their lives." Tom Collins, an attorney representing the estate, said he was simply trying to ensure that only Thomas' biological children are his heirs. The paternity of three of the children, by three different mothers, had previously been determined through legal means and DNA testing. Attorneys for the two mothers involved in Monday's hearing had argued DNA testing wasn't required by law, and Borron agreed.
