LONDON -- Someday, somehow, soccer will likely return at Chapecoense.Through the grieving and after the funerals of the 19 team members who died in a plane crash, soccer will probably be played again, just as it was at Manchester United and Torino following similar tragedies.For so many years I was at the heart of Manchester Uniteds effort to maintain its place in football, England great Bobby Charlton wrote in his 2007 autobiography. There was always one great hope: the return to greatness of my beloved club.Chapecoense, a team from the small Brazilian town of Chapeco, was on its way to play in the Copa Sudamericana final -- South Americas second biggest club tournament -- when the charter airline carrying the players, staff and media crashed into a Colombian mountainside, killing 71 on board.Three players survived, but all suffered serious injuries.In 1958, eight Manchester United players died on a snowy Munich runway. Led on the field by the 20-year-old Charlton, the English team soon set about ensuring the soul of Busby Babes was not extinguished.Torino was the dominant force in Italian soccer before the 1949 Superga air disaster killed 18 players. The team had won the previous four Serie A titles, but it took until 1976 for the team to win the league again -- its last league title.Its a destiny that binds us inextricably, Torino wrote on Twitter after the Chapecoense disaster. We are with you fraternally.The Chapecoense administrators who survived or didnt travel with the team have to balance the responsibility of caring for the families in mourning and the players still alive.Matheus Saroli, the coachs son, forgot his passport so he couldnt travel. An injury prevented Alejandro Martinuccio from joining his team in Colombia for the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional -- the biggest match in the clubs history.Since the crash, Chapecoense has been offered players on loan by rival clubs Flamengo, Palmeiras and Sao Paulo in order to keep going, just like Manchester United was 58 years ago.Matt Busbys talented 1958 United squad had been destined for greatness. The team was flying back from Belgrade after securing a place in the European Cup semifinals. Two months later, a reassembled United team lost to AC Milan.I played my heart out on the night and I was man of the match against Milan, forward Kenny Morgans, who died in 2012, recalled in 2008 ahead of 50th anniversary of the disaster. Then I just sort of packed my career in. I didnt want to play in the first team because I missed the boys that had died.After Munich, some United players felt abandoned by the club.Jackie Blanchflower and Johnny Berry found life very hard after Munich, teammate Albert Scanlon recalled in the 2007 book The Lost Babes before his death two years later.Munich killed not only a lot of the players who were on that flight but some of the survivors, too, and all the young players who had to come in a year or two early. They were never the same.A decade later, United won European soccers top prize for the first time. Charlton, fittingly, scored twice in a 4-1 victory over Benfica in the European Cup final, capping the recovery of a club that has gone on to become the most successful in the English game.(Munich) brought a great deal of sympathy at the time and, from then on, the romance was built purely because of the way Matt rebuilt the team and won the European Cup in `68, former United manager Alex Ferguson said, and did it the right way.---Rob Harris is at www.twitter.com/RobHarris and www.facebook.com/RobHarrisReports Alvin Kamara Jersey . With the first unit struggling of late and Amir Johnson - one of the teams iron men - hobbling on an injured right ankle, Patterson knew he could get the nod in a challenging matchup against one of the leagues up and coming players at his position. Drew Brees Womens Jersey . -- Ty Montgomery had 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and fifth-ranked Stanford held on to beat No. http://www.saintsrookiestore.com/Saints-Sam-Mills-Jersey/ .com) - Christian Ponder will get another chance to prove himself for the Minnesota Vikings, with head coach Leslie Frazier announcing Wednesday that the struggling quarterback will start this weekends game against the Green Bay Packers. Thomas Morstead Youth Jersey . Ashley Youngs cross was inadvertently headed by Chester into his own net in the 66th minute, allowing United to claim a third straight league win. "We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. Alvin Kamara Youth Jersey . President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest was fired Friday after 12 years with the Marlins. The move came as the team neared the end of its third consecutive last-place season in the NL East. MELBOURNE, Fla. -- When Melbourne Central Catholic trailed by 21 points early in the second quarter of a state quarterfinal matchup, players were reminded that there was still a lot of football left to play.Turns out, there was more than anyone envisioned.It took a Florida state-record nine overtimes, but the Hustlers beat Clearwater Central Catholic 69-62 on Friday night -- after the teams combined for a staggering 89 points after regulation.The win sent the Hustlers into this weekends state Class 3A semifinals.Im most excited for our kids and our coaches, to be able to experience this, Melbourne Central Catholic coach Stacy Sizemore said Sunday. We have about six or seven seniors that play and the rest are sophomores and juniors.Joaquin Collazos touchdown run in the fourth quarter pulled Melbourne Central Catholic into a 21-21 tie.Little did anyone know, the teams were just getting started.Both teams stopped the other in the first and fifth overtimes. In the eighth overtime, Clearwater Central Catholic reached the end zone but missed the extra point. And when Melbourne Central Catholic answered with a touchdown, the Hustlers had a chance to win right there -- only to see their own point-after try get blocked, extending the game a little more. Theres no rule in Florida mandating that teams try a 2-point conversion after a certain number of overtimes.ddddddddddddWe even threw two picks in overtime, Sizemore said.The Hustlers overcame it all, scoring again in the ninth overtime when Collazo rushed in for the third time. On the ensuing Clearwater Central Catholic possession, the Hustlers got a fourth-down stop at the 1 to -- finally -- end the game. Sizemore didnt even know what time the game ended, figuring it was somewhere around 11:30 p.m. and needed nearly 300 snaps to complete.Craziest game I ever played in, Clearwater Central Catholics Jerquan Newton wrote on Twitter, adding in a subsequent post that his teammates should never be ashamed of what happened.We all fought hard, Newton wrote.Players from both sides were helping each other to their feet as many cramped during the overtime sessions.Thats what high school football is about, those kind of memories, Sizemore said. Good, bad or indifferent, its about the memories.Sizemore said for the most part, his team -- which includes some two-way players -- got out of the game fairly healthy. And at 6 a.m. Monday, they would be back at work with some weightlifting before school starts.Theyre excited to keep going, Sizemore said. ' ' '
