AP Source: Pegula relinquishes control of NWHL Buffalo team BUFFALO, N.Y. — The owner of the Buffalo Beauts gave up control of the team Wednesday in a move that further jeopardizes the future of the National Women's Hockey League as it struggles to keep its five franchises afloat without the support of the world's top players. Beauts owner Kim Pegula informed NWHL Commissioner Dani Rylan of her decision during a conference call Tuesday, a person with direct knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press. The discussion was considered Rylan's final opportunity to change the owner's mind, said the person, who spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the decision had not been announced.

HARRISON, N.J. — Fredy Montero tied it for Vancouver with a penalty kick in the 61st minute and the Whitecaps held on for a 2-2 draw with the New York Red Bulls on Wednesday night.

Referee Victor Rivas awarded the Whitecaps (3-6-5) the kick after using video review to determine Sean Nealis handled the ball inside the penalty area.

Vancouver took a 1-0 lead in the 29th minute when Scott Sutter finished a counterattack with a narrow-angle finish into the upper corner.

Brian White pulled the Red Bulls (5-5-3) level in the 37th minute with a header flick of Amro Tarek's header.

White's pass across the 6-yard box was redirected by Vancouver's Andy Rose into the Whitecaps own goal to give the Red Bulls a 2-1 lead in the 55th minute.

New York goalkeeper Luis Robles preserved the draw making a diving save on a breakaway attempt by Lucas Venuto in the final minute of stoppage time.
