SOCCER

S.F. State draws again, this time with Monterey Bay

San Francisco State played its third straight overtime game, but the Gators had to settle for their second consecutive tie after their

» English soccer officials opened an investigation into a television report that a Premier League manager and others took bribes from soccer agents as incentive to sign their players. The Football Association and the Premier League said they would ask the BBC to provide details from Tuesday’s program “Undercover: Football’s Dirty Secrets.”

Three soccer agents secretly filmed by the BBC said Bolton manager Sam Allardyce took bribes from agents to complete lucrative player transfer deals. In English soccer, a player under contract with one club may sign with another, so long as both teams agree on a cash payment akin to a buyout.
