North Carolina State, after playing Maryland to a 0-0 double-overtime tie, won the penalty kick shootout, 5-4, in the semifinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference soccer tournament in Durham, N.C. The Wolfpack (13-4-2) will play North Carolina, which scored three second-half goals to upset top-seeded Virginia, 3-0, for the title Sunday.
N.C. State and Maryland (9-6-5) went scoreless for 90 minutes, plus two 10-minute overtimes. That forced a best-of-five penalty kick showdown. Tab Ramos missed the first shot for State, but it converted the remaining four and Wolfpack goalie Kris Peat fended off the final Maryland attempt by Calvin Chew to send the match into sudden death penalty kicks. Following a miss by Maryland's Ismail Elmas, Chibuzor Ehilegbu converted a penalty kick to end the game . . .
Louisiana State sophomore fullback Victor Jones, set to start against Alabama in football today, was arrested for driving at 123 mph Sunday. State police said they stopped Jones after a radar clocking. Coach Mike Archer said Jones reported the incident to him the next morning and will not be disciplined. "He told me he was trying to get some bad gas out of his tank," Archer said. "He had just bought two dollars worth of gas and his car wasn't running right. I believe him."
