BRIEFLY : TOKYO TO SEE DUCKS.
FOOTBALL: An injury suffered nearly two years ago has forced Oregon punter and placekicker Matt Belden to give up his collegiate career. Belden tore a muscle in his right leg during a second-quarter kickoff at Utah in the 1995 season opener.
As a freshman in 1994, Belden led Oregon in scoring with 76 points, hitting 13 of 23 field-goal attempts. He averaged 39.8 yards per punt as the Ducks went to the Rose Bowl for the first time in 37 years.
HORSE RACING: In Sallisaw, Okla., Blue Ribbon Downs general manager Dwayne Burrows, 56, was found dead in his home at the track. A bloodied trophy was next to the body. The local police chief said blood was everywhere and that a cleaning woman found the nude body. He said it appeared Burrows was struck on the head, but he said he couldn't be sure because of the amount of blood.
GOLF: Maria Hjorth of Falun, Sweden, won the A.V. Rubbish Classic at Antelope Valley Country Club, finishing the three-day Players West Tour event at even-par 73-71-72-216 to earn $3,200. Stephanie Martin of Camarillo tied for third at 221 and former Notre Dame High School star Heidi Voorhees tied for 17th at 229.
