scored on a curving free kick from 25 yards midway through the second half to give Azusa Pacific a 1-0 victory over William Jewell in the semifinals of the NAIA Men's National Championship Monday evening in Daytona Beach, Fla.

The No. 8 seed Cougars, who lost in last year's championship game will face No. 2 Graceland in Tuesday's final. The Yellowjackets beat No. 3 Webber International, 1-0, on freshman Bret Loving's goal.

Azusa Pacific is also in the women's final, where it will meet Lindsey Wilson Tuesday in Olathe, Kan. The top-seeded Cougars got goals from Karen Lawrence and Jolie Nitta in the last eight minutes to beat Concordia (Ore.), 3-1.

No. 2 seed Lindsey Wilson defeated defending champion Martin Methodist for the third time this season, coming from behind to win, 2-1, with goals from Jamaica internationals Hishamar Faulkner and Omolyn Davis. Martin Methodist's goal by Lisa Mann broke Lindsey Wilson's streak of 12 straight games without allowing a goal.
