U.S. National Sled Hockey Team Wins the Gold Medal at World Championship

Lipsett Records Three Goals and an Assist

HAMAR, Norway - Taylor Lipsett (Richardson, Texas) scored three goals and added an assist to help the U.S. National Sled Hockey Team to a 5-1 victory over Korea in the gold-medal game of the 2012 International Paralympic Committee Sledge Hockey World Championship here tonight at the Olympic Amphitheatre.

"It's a great feeling to be world champions," said Jeff Sauer, head coach of the U.S. National Sled Hockey Team. "I'm glad for the guys because they worked really hard throughout the whole tournament. It was a great team effort."

Josh Pauls (South Plainfield, N.J.) opened the scoring for Team USA at 2:57 of the first period when he crashed the net and banged home a rebound. The U.S. outshot Korea, 8-2, in the opening frame and held a 1-0 lead at the first intermission.

Lipsett tallied his first goal of the game at 2:54 of the second period when he drove to the net on a sharp angle and beat Korea goaltender Man Gyun Yu. At 5:12, Alexi Salamone (Grand Island, N.Y) found Lipsett streaking down the slot and he banged the puck into the net for his second goal of the game. Salamone tallied a goal of his own at 12:08 with an assist credited to Lipsett to give the U.S. a 4-0 lead heading into the final period.

Korea got on the board at 1:34 of the third period, but Lipsett responded with his third goal of the game 17 seconds later to secure the 5-1 win for Team USA.

Steve Cash (Overland, Mo.) made seven saves in the victory, while Yu and Young Hoon Chung combined to make 17 saves for Korea.

NOTES: Taylor Lipsett was named Team USA's Player of the Game ... Goaltender Steve Cash, defenseman Taylor Chace (Hampton Falls, N.H.) and forward Alexi Salamone made the all-tournament team ... Team USA finished the tournament with a 3-1-1-0 (W-OTW-OTL-L) record. ...

Facebook makes us feel fat. New research by The Center for Eating Disorders discovered that Facebook users are more self-conscious because they constantly see pictures of themselves. Thirty-two percent said they felt "sad" when comparing Facebook photos of themselves to their friends' photos. The survey also discovered that Facebook is making us feel like we should be "camera ready" at all times. Half of us say we are nervous at social events because photos taken could be posted on Facebook. Forty-three percent avoid photos when we don't feel we "look our best."

MARTINSVILLE, Va. -- In the wake of a controversial late-race caution, Ryan Newman spoiled an afternoon of Hendrick hegemony with an opportunistic victory in the Goody's Fast Relief 500 Sunday at Martinsville Speedway.

After Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson dominated the action for 497 laps, an untimely caution flag flew on Lap 497 and sent the race to overtime, after David Reutimann stalled on the frontstretch.

It was a pretty quiet race at Martinsville until caution came out with three laps to go. Then craziness broke out and left numerous drivers wondering just what happened.

Gordon and Johnson stayed out on old tires as the lead-lap cars behind them came to the pits for tires and fuel. On the restart on Lap 504, Clint Bowyer took Johnson and Gordon three-wide into the first corner, and all three cars spun, ruining a potential 200th victory party for Hendrick Motorsports.

After the dust settled, Newman cleared runner-up AJ Allmendinger on the second lap of a green-white-checkered restart and held on to win by .342 seconds. Dale Earnhardt Jr. ran third, followed by Matt Kenseth and Martin Truex Jr.

LEEDS, Ala. – The lap that Will Power lost in Round 2 of qualifications – the one that drew his ire over the ruling and ended his streak of 20 appearances in the Firestone Fast Six – is but a distant memory for the driver of the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske car.

For Power, who started ninth in the third Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama, got that lap back and more over the course of 90 laps on the 2.38-mile, 17-turn road course he drove on multiple times in the past two months in developing the Chevrolet engine and new Dallara chassis.

Power, who inherited the point when Team Penske teammate Helio Castroneves pulled off for this final service stop on Lap 68, held off Scott Dixon for the remaining laps that included a Lap 74 restart and won for the second year in a row at the picturesque venue.
