    VALENCIA, Spain -- Gareth Bale filled the void left by the injured Cristiano Ronaldo, sealing Real Madrids 19th Copa del Rey title with a late goal in Wednesdays 2-1 win over Barcelona. [b]Off White Nike Air Max Cheap[/b] . Ronaldos extra-time play gave Madrid the 2011 Copa del Rey title at Barcelonas expense. In his absence Wednesday, Bale scored in the 85th minute -- his first goal in three "clasico" matches -- to make sure Madrid repeated the feat. Angel Di Maria scored Madrids opener from a counterattack in the 11th minute, capitalizing on a Barcelona lineup that seemed to lack ideas in attack and was slow to recover in defence. Defender Marc Bartra equalized against the run of play in the 67th by heading in from a corner kick to ruin goalkeeper Iker Casillas record run of not conceding in this edition of the tournament. The goal appeared to energize Barcelona, sparking Lionel Messi into action and ensuring the last 15 minutes became a frenetic back-and-forth contest. But with the game hanging in the balance, Bale got the winner when he sprinted down the left side of the pitch, even running out of bounds to avoid Bartra, before racing into the area and rolling the ball under goalkeeper Jose Pinto. "It is difficult to see a player be able to sprint like that at that stage of the game," Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino said. "The game was going our way after we had levelled, until that counterattack." Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti said the goal was "surely the most important" of Bales career, which took a major turn last summer when Madrid broke its own spending record to pay his (euro)100-million transfer to pry him from Tottenham. "It was a decisive moment. When Bartra scored anything could have happened," Ancelotti said. Barcelona, however, still had one last chance, only for Neymars shot to hit the upright in the 90th. Neymars last-gasp effort almost "scared us to death," Casillas said. "Fortune was on our side, and we are thankful for it." Ronaldo joined his teammates to celebrate with their fans on the pitch before the team filed past King Juan Carlos to receive their medals and the prized trophy. The plane carrying the Spanish monarch had technical problems that delayed take-off, but he arrived on time to watch the match along with more than 50,000 spectators divided into large sections of white and blue-and-burgundy club colours. After failing to win the cup competition between 1993 and 2011, Madrid has won it twice in the last four years. Ancelotti earned his first trophy for Madrid and first "clasico" win after losing his first two meetings with Barcelona, and his team will now focus on overtaking Atletico Madrid in the league and its Champions League semifinal against Bayern Munich. The loss is a setback for Barcelona and a major blow to Martino. In an eight-day span, Barcelona exited Europes top-tier competition with a loss, slipped to third place in the Spanish league, and then lost Copa del Rey to its fiercest rival. "It has been a hard week on all fronts," said Martino, who remains confident of hanging on to his job for one more season. "As I have said for one, two, three months now, I dont feel that my future has changed because of all that we lost, and nor do I think it would be different if we had won." Barcelona will now have to catch both Madrid and Atletico with only five rounds left in the Spanish league to make sure it doesnt end the season without a major piece of silverware for the first time since the arrival of Pep Guardiola in 2008-09.

The German led the overall World Cup womens standings this season and continued her dominance by putting down a track record time of 49. [b]Nike Air Max Wholesale[/b] . "Im excited just for a new start, just to see where things are going, to bring some kind of tradition back to the team and guys being excited about something new," the defensive back said during a conference call Monday after agreeing to stay with the Bombers rather than go to free agency next month. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State quarterback and Heisman hopeful Jameis Winston will not face any charges in a sexual assault case, mostly because there were too many gaps in his accusers story, a prosecutor said Thursday. State Attorney Willie Meggs said the womans memory lapses about the events last December were problematic and there was not enough evidence to win a conviction. "Its not inconsistencies, its lack of memory most of the time," Meggs said. The woman told police she had been drinking at a bar with friends and went home with a man she didnt know. She said she the alleged assault took place at an off-campus apartment, but she couldnt remember where it was. A month later, she identified her alleged attacker as the quarterback. Winstons attorney said the sex was consensual. The quarterback said in a statement he was relieved. "Its been difficult to stay silent through this process, but I never lost faith in the truth and in who I am," Winston said. The alleged assault happened long before Winston became a star on the national stage. Reports about an investigation didnt surface in the public until last month, as the redshirt freshman was well into a remarkable season with Florida State. Winston, 19, has led the Seminoles to a No. 1 ranking and a shot at a national championship if they defeat Duke on Saturday in the ACC title game. As for the Heisman, many voters were waiting to see whether he would be charged before casting their ballot. The deadline is Monday and Winston is considered a leading contender for the trophy for the nations top player. It will be awarded Dec. 14. The accusers family has been sharply critical of the Tallahassee Police Department, accusing the agency of delaying the investigation and discouraging her from going forward with the case because of the public attention it would receive. "The victim has grave concerns that her experience, as it unfolded in the public eye and through social media, will discourage other victims of rape from coming forward and reporting," according to a statement from the accuser and her family. The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault. On Thursday, specific details of the alleged assault were released. The woman told police she and friends were drinking at Potbellys and said she remembered getting into a cab with a man she didnt know. At the apartment, she said she tried to fight the man off, but he wouldnt stop. At some point, she said another man came into the room and told her attacker to stop, but he didnt. Her next memory was of the suspect dressing her, putting her on a scooter and dropping her off at a campus intersection. Once she got back to her room, she called police and later went to the hospital. Police said they opened an investigation and were collecting evidence when they were told in February she didnt want to pursue the charges. The womans attornney has denied she wanted to drop the investigation. [b]Nike Air Max Sale Clearance[/b]. Winston refused to be interviewed by police and has not answered questions from the media. Two of his teammates backed his story in statements they gave last month to an investigator for the quarterbacks attorney, Timothy Jansen. The statements were part of an investigative file released Thursday. Teammates Christopher Casher and Ronald Darby said they were at Potbellys with Winston when the accuser struck up a conversation with the quarterback and got into the cab with the three men. Once at the apartment, the teammates said they peeked through Winstons bedroom door and saw the woman having sex with the quarterback. At one point, Casher said he "busted into the room to embarrass Jameis" and the girl yelled at him to "get out." In a later interview with police, Casher changed this part of his story, saying he went into the room because he hoped the woman would also have sex with him, something he said had happened in the past when he and Winston brought a woman to the apartment. Casher left the room and was not accused of having sex with the woman, and no other women have made accusations against Casher or Darby. Meggs office took over the case last month. Investigators interviewed the accuser, other witnesses and collected evidence before the prosecutor made his decision. He said the womans blood-alcohol content at the hospital was .04 and investigators estimated it to be about .10 at the time of the incident, based on the amount of time that had passed. The legal limit to drive in Florida is .08. They also took DNA from Winston and matched it to DNA collected from the womans underwear. DNA on her shorts matched her boyfriend at the time. The accusers family has said they pushed police to take a DNA sample from Winston earlier in the investigation, only to be told by a police detective that it would alert Winston and make the case public. The family said the accusers attorney, Patricia Carroll, was warned by police that Tallahassee is a "big football town, and the victim needs to think long and hard before proceeding against him because she will be raked over the coals and her life will be made miserable." Tallahassee police have defended their handling of the case. The alleged victim was an FSU student, but she left school last month as media reports of the case surfaced. Meggs said when his office spoke with the woman last month, she wanted the case to move forward. At a restaurant on campus, students high-fived one another and did the Seminoles chant and tomahawk chop when Meggs said no charges would be filed. "Its been a tough couple weeks," said Justin Savage, a 21-year-old senior sports management major from Fort Walton Beach. "Im just so grateful. Hes just so lovable a guy. You can see him on campus and hell talk to you, it doesnt matter who you are." ' ' '
