Soccer Player Dies

Compiled From Wire Services
 

Stacey Martin, 21, a junior for the University of Dayton women’s soccer team, died after collapsing during an exhibition game in Dayton.

Martin, a three-year starter, collapsed during the first half of the Flyers’ game with Lakota U-17, a club team from the Hamilton area.

A soccer fan was attacked and killed at an English division-two game between Gillingham and Fulham in Gillingham.

Police said a man had been arrested in connection with the case.

They first said the victim had been stabbed to death. But at a news conference later, Detective Superintendent John Hann, said he could not confirm the man died of a stab wound. Other injuries, possibly including a head wound, could be involved.
