BRIEFLY : MORE STORIES COME OUT IN B.C. SCANDAL.

A student who says he placed bets for five Boston College football players had to be hospitalized last year after he was beaten by a New York bookmaker with a 2-by-4 over a bad debt, his father told the Boston Globe.

His father said the student owed $4,000 when the bookie beat him. To save their son from further harm, the parents made four weekly payments of $1,000 to a man they met outside a Brighton bar that is off limits to B.C. athletes.

The Big East team has been embroiled in a gambling controversy that led to the suspension of 13 football players this week. Two of the players allegedly bet against Boston College in its Oct. 26 game against Syracuse.

The lockers of five of the suspended players - Steve Everson, Jamall Anderson, Jermaine Monk, Marcus Bembry and Brandon King - had been cleaned out before Saturday's loss to Notre Dame.

The student wouldn't name the bookmaker who beat him but described him as a ``big version of a runner.'' He also would not describe his connection to the bookmaker.

However, the student said he gave his gambling ledgers to authorities, showing he placed hundreds of dollars worth of bets with an off-campus bookmaker for several B.C. football players.

GOLF

With two swings, Jay Sigel took the lead and command of the Senior Tour Championship at Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Sigel curled in a 20-foot birdie, then canned a one-hop hole-in-one on the way to his third straight 3-under-par 69 and a three-stroke lead over Bob Charles heading into the final round of the Senior PGA Tour's closing event.

Paul Stankowski birdied four of the last seven holes for a 6-under-par 67 and a one-stroke lead over Steve Jones and Bob Gilder after three rounds of the Kapalua (Hawaii) International.

HORSE RACING

High Heeled Hope, the 1-2 favorite, came with a powerful run to overtake the leaders and score a 3-1/2-length victory over Guthrie in the $102,900 Maker's Mark for 2-year-old fillies at Hollywood Park.

High Heeled Hope ran the 7 furlongs in 1:22 4/5 to beat three rivals. Alex Solis, at 121 pounds, guided the winner for trainer Randy Bradshaw.

Dernier Empereur, impressive winner of the Carleton F. Burke Handicap on the Oak Tree meeting's closing day at Santa Anita, has been retired after fracturing his left front cannon bone during a routine gallop at Hollywood Park on Saturday morning. The 6-year-old was preparing to run in the Nov. 24 Japan Cup.
