Rekdal, right, scores the 2-1 winning goal with a penalty kick during the Brazil vs. Norway World Cup soccer match in Marseille Tuesday. PARIS (AP) — The power of a referee's whistle could hardly be more profound. World Cup Two controversial foula — two cases of apparent incidental contact — in two games Tuesday at the World Cup led to street celebrations on the other side of the world. They «ent teama to uii- precedented levels of success and left losing coaches angry, bitter or perplexed. ' Norway — not Morocco — is in the second round because of a penalty in the 89th minute- that gave the Norwegians a stunning 2-1 victory over defending champion Brazil. It's the first time Norway has made it past the first round. : "We made history in Norway today,™ Norwegian striker Tore Andre Flo said.

Still, even coach Mario Zagatlo couldn't help but raise the proverbial eyebrow to American referee Esse Bahannaat'a decision that Junior Baiano'a bump with Flo as the two battled for position on a high ball was worthy of the most decisive of fouls. U I don't really know what happened there," said Zagallo, shrugging hia shoulders. "The referee ia FIFA's problem, not Brazil's problem." It Was a problem for the Moroccans, who thought they had qualified with a 3-0 victory over Scotland. Then they learned of Norway's stunning comeback. Morocco's players wept on the field. Coach Henri Michel kicked the bench-, then hugged each of his stars. And he hadn't even heard about the dubious penalty that did his team in.

Tm sorry we were eliminated, especially on a decision that was an incompetent one." •; The foul came in the 68th minute, when Hungarian referee Laszlo Vagner claimed Patrick Mboma pushed Ronaldo Fuentea just before Francois Omam Biy- ick put the ball in the net. "We can't really accept this unfair decision," midfielder Salomon Olernbe said. "The refer** will not be welcome in Cameroon if ho wonted to spend a holiday there." . Le Roy launched into repeated verbal attacks on FIFA president Sepp Blatter, who last week toid referees to call more fouls. "If this is what football is all about, I hope Mr. Blatter was watching," Le Roy said. "There wasn't a shove or a foul. "I hope FIFA will discuss the issue of what happened today." More celebrations! and heartbreak were due today, when South Africa plays Saudi Arabia (already out) and Denmark plays France (already advanced) i'n Group C. In.

Hingis survives first-round scare WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — A spitting nuisance of rain, not enough to fill a tea cup, washed away 60 match«* Tuesday and doused Lisa Raymond's shot at knocking out defending Wimbledon champion Martina Hingis in the first round. • Wimbledon No other sport would have come to a halt in so flimsy a drizzle, but for tennis players skidding on slick new grass it was too much. Sort of like some of the days last year in the wettest of alt Wimble- dons. Only one match was completed on Centre C^ourt, and for Raymond-it lasted about 90 minutes too long. That was the time of the rain delay, from which the 19th- ranked Raymond emerged air if in a stupor. After giving Hingis fits in the first set with booming backhands and gutsy, go-for-broke winners, Raymond came out of the locker room the second time nnd immediately double-faulted, dropped serve twice and lost her fourth straight game to fall behind 5-1. The American, who won her last match in Hingis' adopted Swiss homeland, didn't go quietly. But she went nevertheless, 7-5, 6-3, after saving three match points, breaking Hingis and holding at love to 5-3. "1 definitely didn't come out of the blocks (after the rain delay) aa well as I had in the first set," Raymond said. "It definitely was not to my advantage to' stop. I think I played a lot more loose points in the second set ... and you just can't do that against her." Hingis is chunkier than a year a£o, looks more vulnerable, and is surrounded by challengers young and old. But she has a knack for getting out of trouble and putting pressure on her opponents. Raymond kept Hingis deep, ran her from side to side, and stilj couldn't put her away. Perhaps no shot was more telling of Hingis' ability to come up with what's needed as the running forehand she drilled down the line from off court to give her sot point in the first s«t. Raymond, deflated by that xhot after doing HO much to get Hingis out of position, weakly netted a backhand on the nest point to drop the set. "It's very frustrating," Raymond said. "Martina sterns to b« able to come up with thos« shots, and that's one of the reasons why she's No. 1 in the world. That's one of her talenta," Ironwood evened its Lumberjack Baseball Conference record at 4-4 with a 13-9 win over Tomahawk at home Tuesday. Chad Novascone struck out six and walked seven in 6% innings for the win. Shawn McGrath came in with the bases loaded in the seventh inning to get the last out and earn a save.

Travis Lahtinen got things started with doubles. Dan McRae added a single and Josh Bonacci hit a sacrifice fly. Tomahawk tied it at 4-4 in the third with a double, a Devil error and a sacrifice. Ironwood's runs continued to come in bunches. The Devils managed four more in the fourth. Dean Erickson walked, followed by singles by EIlos, Lahtinen, McRae and Novascone. Tomahawkk closed the gap in the fifth with two runs, helped by two Ironwood errors. An errant pickofF throw to second with the bases loaded allowed the two to .score. •' •'•-••.•;.•.
