CLEVELAND — The Browns have matched Jacksonville’s offer sheet for Pro Bowl center Alex Mack and will keep one of their top players.

The 28-year-old Mack will receive $26 million guaranteed in the deal, which he can void after two seasons. Also, the Browns are not allowed to tag or trade him.

PHILADELPHIA — Daniel Ciampini and tiny Union College are thriving on college hockey’s biggest stage.
Ciampini broke a third-period tie with the second of his three goals to help Union beat Boston College 5-4 in the NCAA hockey semifinals Thursday night.
The Dutchmen (31-6-4) advanced to the final for the first time. They will face Minnesota — a 2-1 winner over North Dakota in the second semifinal— in the championship game Saturday night.
“When I came in here as a freshman, there were goals set, but our ultimate goal was not to win the national championship that year,” said Ciampini, now a junior. “It’s just been growing each year.”
Mat Bodie and Mike Vecchione also scored and Colin Stevens made 34 saves for Union, a liberal arts college in Schenectady, N.Y., with only 2,200 students.

Scott relishes role as defending Masters champion PDF Print E-mail

AUGUSTA, Ga. — For some, the burden of defending a championship can be overwhelming.
For Adam Scott, it was pure joy — at least for a day.
With a green jacket already in his collection, Scott felt a sense of calm that carried over to the golf course Thursday. The result: a 3-under 69 that got the laid-back Aussie off to just the kind of start he was looking for at the Masters.
Now, to keep it going for three more days.
“Having won last year, in some ways, has taken a little pressure off me,” Scott said. “I kind of felt like what was the worst than can happen? I’m still going to be a Masters champion.”
Bill Haas was leading a major for the first time, shooting a 68 that left him one stroke ahead of the last guy to win the Masters (Scott), the guy who won it two years ago (Bubba Watson), and the guy Watson beat in a playoff (Louis Oosthuizen).
But Scott was clearly the most compelling figure on Day 1 of a Masters marked by the absence of Tiger Woods, sitting out for the first time in his career after undergoing back surgery. Golf has been waiting for a star to take control all year, and Scott turned in a rock-solid round that was marred only by a double bogey in the middle of Amen Corner, the one time he let the significance of being a major champion get to him a bit.

Minnesota beats North Dakota on last-second goal PDF Print E-mail

PHILADELPHIA — Justin Holl and the Minnesota Golden Gophers cut it about as close as possible after waiting all season to renew their long rivalry with North Dakota.
The senior defenseman scored a short-handed goal with 0.6 seconds left to give Minnesota a 2-1 victory over North Dakota on Thursday night in the NCAA hockey semifinals.
Minnesota (28-6-6) will face Union College in the title game Saturday night. Union beat Boston College 5-4 in the first semifinal at Wells Fargo Center.
“Guess it was just another boring Minnesota-North Dakota game,” Gophers coach Don Lucia joked.
Holl scored his first goal of the season, beating Zane Gothberg to the glove side with a shot just inside the right post.
“Most of us were just focused on killing the penalty and getting into overtime,” Holl said. “It just developed where there were 5 seconds left and I might as well jump in (the offensive rush). And it went in.”
The Gophers were in the midst of killing off a power play on which North Dakota fired four shots on Adam Wilcox, but the Minnesota goalie stopped them all. Overall, Wilcox made 36 saves.

CHICAGO — Cleveland’s Danny Salazar couldn’t sustain his swing-and-miss stuff against Jose Abreu and the Chicago White Sox.
Abreu connected for his second multihomer game in three days and the Chicago White Sox ended a 14-game losing streak against Cleveland, beating the Indians 7-3 Thursday night.
Salazar (0-1) struck out 10 in 3 2-3 innings, but he also gave up five runs and six hits, including homers by Abreu and Alexei Ramirez.
Salazar struck out eight through three innings, with the only out not recorded by a strikeout coming when Adam Eaton tried to stretch a single into a double in the third inning.
According to Elias Sports Bureau, Salazar became the first pitcher from the modern era (since 1900) to have 10 or more strikeouts in less than four innings.
