EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) -- A southwestern Illinois meat cutter who sued after a prize for his hole in one during a charity golf tournament wasn’t paid out as promised has carded a legal victory.

<br><Br>

The (Alton) Telegraph reports that a Madison County judge has awarded Donald Beiermann of Godfrey an $11,000 judgment against the Alton church that sponsored the tournament and the Godfrey course that hosted it.

<br><Br>

Beiermann scored the ace on the 17th hole, where a sign promised such a feat would win an $11,000 trip for four to California’s Pebble Beach Golf Course.

<br><Br>

A specialty insurer refused to pay, arguing the contract provided that the hole in one must be on a hole at least 165 yards long. Biermann’s ace, witnessed by three companions, was on a hole 149 yards long.

ST. CLAIR, Mo. (AP) - A fat cat that drew international attention when its owner turned him over to a shelter is now living at a sanctuary for hard-to-place animals in eastern Missouri.

<br><Br>

The cat, named Biscuit, weighed 37 pounds when he was taken to the St. Charles shelter. More than 110 people offered to adopt him before he was placed with a couple from Eureka earlier this month.

<br><Br>

However, Biscuit fought with a cat at that home and the couple couldn't keep him. On Saturday, Biscuit was turned over to The Shannon Foundation sanctuary for hard-to-place animals outside St. Clair in Franklin County. He'll stay there permanently, living with about 75 other animals.

<br><Br>

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Biscuit weighed 33.2 pounds on Thursday. His goal weight is 14.8 pounds.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two of the top teams in soccer's English Premier League are coming to St. Louis for an exhibition match.

<br><br>

   The St. Louis Cardinals announced Friday that Busch Stadium will host a game on May 23 between Manchester City and Chelsea.

<br><br>

   St. Louis has a long soccer heritage but has been hurt in recent years because of the lack of an appropriate venue for big-time matches.

<br><br>

   Vicki Bryant, vice president of event services and merchandising for the Cardinals, says the hope is to make a high-profile match an annual event.

<br><br>

   The match will be the first professional, non-baseball sporting event at Busch since the stadium opened in 2006.

<br><br>

   Tickets starting at $30 go on sale Tuesday, with a pre-sale Monday for Cardinals season ticket holders.
