Jerry Sandusky's Victim 1 thought about suicide

From Comcast SportsNetHARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- The young man whose claims of abuse began the criminal investigation that put Jerry Sandusky in prison says he contemplated suicide because authorities took so long to prosecute the former Penn State assistant football coach.Aaron Fisher is speaking out publicly by name for the first time. He tells ABC in an interview airing Friday that the Pennsylvania attorney general's office had told him it needed more victims before Sandusky would be charged.Fisher says the long delay made him increasingly desperate. He says he thought "maybe it would be easier to take myself out of the equation."Fisher was known as Victim 1. He testified at Sandusky's trial. Sandusky was sentenced last week to at least 30 years in prison for molesting Fisher and nine other boys.

Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.
