AKRON, Ohio -- Golf in Ohio must bring out the best in William McGirt. Mohamed Sanu Falcons Jersey .One month after his first PGA Tour victory at the Memorial, McGirt looked just as good two hours up the road at the Bridgestone Invitational. In his World Golf Championship debut, he opened with six birdies and finished with a 45-foot par for a 6-under 64 and a three-shot lead.An Ohio sweep?Thats only happened four times, and McGirt made a strong guess at the answer.Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods and Tiger Woods? he said. That would be pretty special company.He left out Greg Norman in 1995 (Memorial and World Series of Golf), no less a select group.McGirt had some decent company behind him after an opening round of warm sunshine and fast conditions at Firestone. Jason Day, the worlds No. 1 player, was among three players at 67, while Jordan Spieth somehow managed to post a 68 despite having only one birdie attempt (he missed) in his first 10 holes.I wasnt supposed to shoot 2 under today, Spieth said.U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson had a U.S. Open kind of round -- 15 pars, two birdies and a bogey -- for a 69. His big celebration was walking off the 11th green to learn that his alma mater, Coastal Carolina, had just won the College World Series for its first national title. His golf wasnt bad considering that he didnt practice much last week while celebrating his first major (and his 32nd birthday) in The Bahamas.I didnt expect a whole lot today, Johnson said. I always expect to play well, but this golf course is playing tough.Only 17 players of the 61-man field broke par. The first round ended with only 58 players.Daniel Berger withdrew after his opening tee shot with a shoulder injury. Brooks Koepka withdrew after 13 holes with an ankle injury. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III, playing at Firestone for the first time since 2009, withdrew after a 78 because of what was described as a torn labrum.The field also was missing Rory McIlroy and Masters champion Danny Willett, among several European Tour players who opted to play the French Open this week.McGirt had never played in a WGC until he became eligible with his playoff victory at Muirfield Village a month ago. He showed up at Firestone on Sunday, played nine holes and rode in a cart on the back nine.I fell in love with the place because length is not everything out here, McGirt said. You have to drive it in the fairway. You have to drive it in the correct spots in the fairways to be able to attack pins. I love it because you cant stand up there and just hit it as hard as you want, go find it and hack it on the green. Its an old, traditional style golf course, which I absolutely love.I dont know, maybe its something with Ohio I like, he added.The most peculiar round belonged to Spieth, who said he has been in a lull the last month as he searches for something in his swing, particularly his wedges. It had the look of a score closer to 74 or 75, except that the former Masters and U.S. Open champion kept hanging in there with pars. One shot hit a tree and bounced forward over the water into a bunker. He whiffed on a 7-iron that left him a tough pitch, but he managed to save par from 8 feet.He ended the front nine with par-saving putts from 20 feet and 25 feet.It took him until the 15th hole before he had back-to-back birdie putts, and he started converting them. He holed the last four of them.Im really just searching for something that isnt far off, thats real simple, Spieth said. It really is only taking place on my scoring clubs, but thats where you need them. Its close. Its almost there. And when it clicks, were definitely in business the way the short game is.Emiliano Grillo and Jimmy Walker also were at 67 with Day, while Spieth was joined by Rickie Fowler, Anirban Lahiri and Charley Hoffman.Day said he felt a burden lifted by making his announcement not to play in the Olympics because of Zika concerns, but he didnt think that equated to his golf. It was a tidy round with only one bogey and four birdies, and a pair of tough par saves from a bunker on No. 9 and behind the green on the par-5 16th.It was just kind of a weird feeling of a day where I kind of made some good pars, kept the momentum going, and all of a sudden I shot 67, Day said. Ive just got to keep grinding until Sunday is over. Ryan Schraeder Falcons Jersey . -- Stanford squashed Oregons national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Allen Crabbe was upset three years ago when he wasnt selected until the second round of the NBA draft. His new contract with the Blazers alleviates some of that disappointment.Crabbe, a restricted free agent, has re-signed with the Portland Trail Blazers, who matched Brooklyns four-year, $75 million offer for the 6-foot-6 wing.He talked about the deal, finalized last week, on Friday at the teams practice facility. Center Meyers Leonard also spoke about his new contact with the Blazers.Crabbe was the 31st overall pick by Cleveland in the 2013 draft, but Portland traded two future second-round picks to acquire him. He called the experience of waiting for his name to be picked in New York as terrible.Im just thankful for the opportunity that Portland traded up to get me, he said. I feel that its really worked out to my benefit over these three years. Theyve done a great job in developing me into the player I am today.Crabbe, who played at California, averaged career highs with 10.3 points and 2.7 rebounds in 81 games last season, shooting 46 percent from the field and 39 percent from 3-point range. He was the teams leading scorer off the bench.Neil Olshey, Portlands president of basketball operations, called Crabbe a foundational player for the Blazers who grabbed the leagues attention in his breakout third season. He said there was never a question whether the Blazers would match offers that came his way.We all saw what he was able to do last season when he was given the opportunity, Olshey said. Those opportunities will increase as we go forward. Hes an incredible young player in this league.Leonard is staying in Portland for the next four years with a brand-new $41 million deal.The 11th overall pick in thhe 2012 draft, Leonard averaged 8. Patrick DiMarco Falcons Jersey. 4 points and 5.1 rebounds last season, which was marked by injuries. He dislocated his left shoulder in November and before having surgery in March for a torn labrum that cut short his season.Leonard, who was surrounded at Fridays news conference with family and friends, said hes close to getting his full range of motion back.My hope is to be ready right around the start of the season, he said. Its a progression, first introducing rebounding, grabbing stuff overhead, then one-on-one, three-on-three, extending to the full court. Well see. You just never know.It was a busy offseason for the Blazers, who also signed free agent forward Festus Ezeli, and acquired guard Shabazz Napier in a trade with the Orlando Magic for cash considerations. Portland also formally signed forward Jake Layman, acquired in a draft-day trade, as well as free agent wing Evan Turner.Portland was one of the biggest surprises of last season, advancing to the second round of the playoffs with one of the youngest rosters in the league after losing four starters in the offseason.Last year it was the fork in the road with the veterans, and we had to choose a path, Olshey said. What we wanted was a model of young guys, whose rights we controlled, who wanted to be here, part of a set roster that can grow together. Now were just in the tinkering and playing in the margin. So I feel good about it. I think we maximized our cap room. We had some holes, maybe not positionally, but in terms of skill-set, that we identified. We were able to do, I think, a pretty admirable job in free agency. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' ' 
Justice Mukul Mudgal, appointed by the Delhi High Court to oversee conduct of matches in New Delhi during the World T20 and IPL this year, has suggested that the BCCI should appoint an ad-hoc committee and appoint a full-time officer to run the controversy-ridden Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA). Nike Roshe Run Scontate .It is advisable the DDCA has a full-time CEO who independently looks after the administration and financial aspect of the association to ensure continuity and smooth functioning, Mudgal noted in a 27-page report to the court that record his findings, observations and recommendations. The current state of affairs in DDCA requires the scrutiny of BCCI.It is for BCCI to decide whether to constitute a specialised ad-hoc body or a committee to take over and manage the affairs of DDCA to improve the situation in DDCA in the interest of cricket so that Ferozshah Kotla again becomes a venue which has international standards to upkeep. This is the second time this year Mudgal has exposed DDCAs shortcomings. In January, Mudgal had prepared a damning report pointing towards numerous deficiencies based on his work as a court-appointed observer for the fourth Test of the India-South Africa series in December 2015.Just as he had done during that assignment, Mudgal, who was assisted by IP Singh, former deputy Comptroller & Auditor General of India, carried out a diligent analysis of every committee and every activity conducted by the DDCA listing out the minutiae.The recommendations made in the present report and all my earlier reports are not exhaustive for improving the state of affairs at DDCA, he observed. Several complaints were received regarding the selection process of players during my tenure at DDCA, which requires a thorough investigation by an independent person or body. The proxy system is the bane of Delhi Cricket and subject to other legal requirements deserves to be jettisoned.Some of the office bearers and the executive committee Member of DDCA only act for their own personal gains and for maintaining their relationship at the expense of DDCA. It is a pity that the coaches, players, vendors and employees of DDCA are not paid on time. The office bearers, executive committee member and the sports working committee members of DDCA should be concerned for improving the cricket facilities in the city of Delhi.According to Mudgal, the BCCI, as a parent body must ensure that DDCA is transparent in its functioning as it is a public body responsible for promoting cricket in the city of Delhi. The report categorically listed the various grey areas related to tendering, accounts and finance, administration, player selections and ticketing and accreditation.Mudgal said he was also surprised at the associations dependency on last-minute permissions and preparations to host matches despite receiving BCCI affiliation in 1928. He also pointed out that the association could function smoothly, like his team had shown during their recent assignments, if the right processes were applied.The report specified that the World T20 matches were played with proper certification from various civic and government bodies for the first time in contrast to the desperate dash to seek provisional certificates which had become a norm over the last few years. Mudgal pointed out that the most controversial aspect of his tenure as a DDCA observer was ticketing and accreditation. It was noticed that several unwanted and unnecessary accreditation cards were being issued to various person at the behest of the office bearers of DDCA.Mudgal also said it was extremely disheartening to note that the DDCAs administration department had not updated records of all players representing the state at various tournaments. The lists of women players were made for the first time in the history of DDCA during World T20 matches.Among other areas, Mudgal said the association blatantly abused rights to issue parking passes during matches by citing a personal example. When IPL-9 started neither I nor any of my associates was given the Parking ticket, he stated. On being asked why the parking ticket was not sent to me, Mr. Subhash Sharma, member of the Security Committee, said that all the passes have been consumed by the Executive Committee Members and hence no pass was left for the person who was appointed as an observer by this Honble Court. Nike Roshe Run Saldi .com) - The Calgary Flames aim to bounce back from their first regulation home loss of the campaign on Friday night when they host a Detroit Red Wings club that they swept in three meetings a season ago. Nike Roshe Run Saldi Online . Schenn scored the game-winning goal and added two assists to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-1 win over the Calgary Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Tuesday. http://www.airjordanshopitalia.it/air-jordan-scarpe.html SUNRISE, Fla. -- Gerard Gallant wanted the Florida Panthers to play one way, and his bosses wanted another.As such, theyre not his bosses anymore.The Panthers cited philosophical differences Monday as the primary reason why they fired Gallant, a coach of the year finalist last season who made it through only 22 games this season. Tom Rowe will essentially take a hiatus from being general manager to fill the coaching spot for the rest of the year, starting with Tuesdays game in Chicago.We wanted to develop a team and build a team that was fast, could move the puck quickly, pressure the puck in all three zones, Rowe said. Gerard and I talked about it. He said he wanted a little bit more size, and we just decided to go in a different direction. Were we on the same page every day of the week? No ... philosophy was different.Florida is 11-10-1, starting Monday only two points out of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference even after dealing with some serious injuries so far this season. But the Panthers have simply been mediocre in some areas, including power-play (21st out of 30 teams) and penalty-killing (19th).The teams longest winning streak so far this season is two, something the Panthers have managed three times. The last straw apparently was how Florida wasted a 2-0 lead in what became a 3-2 loss at Carolina on Sunday night, though the Panthers front office had discussions long before that collapse about making a change.Weve been unhappy with the inconsistent performance, Panthers President and CEO Matthew Caldwell said. I just think we can be playing better at this stage of the season. So we decided a change is necessary to move in a different direction.Players were off Monday, though Rowe was meeting with them to discuss both the decision to fire Gallant and how he wants certain defensive schemes to change on the ice.Gallant was a standout left wing as a player, primarily for the Detroit Red Wings -- scoring at least 34 goals in four straight seasons from 1986 through 1990 and finishing hiss NHL career with 211 goals in 615 games. Air Jordan Shop Italia. He was drawing rave reviews as Floridas coach, especially after last season when he steered the team to the best regular season in franchise history.He was under contract through the 2018-19 season, having signed an extension back in January.And then it all came to a most unceremonious end Sunday night, when his luggage was taken off the bus that was carrying the Panthers to the airport from the arena in Raleigh, North Carolina. A taxi soon arrived to pick up Gallant, as the Panthers took off for their trip to Chicago.The Panthers ownership and other team officials rely heavily on advanced statistics, and Gallant was not the biggest fan of analytics. He spoke openly about how his views differed from the perspective of Floridas management on the analytics issue in August 2015, at a fundraising event hosted by the University of Prince Edward Island.Gallant told a story about how an unnamed former Florida player looked great to the analytics staff but wasnt the sort of player he wanted.I couldnt stand watching him on the ice, Gallant said that night in Canada. I didnt like the way he played one bit.Part of Floridas issues has clearly been injury-related.Jonathan Huberdeau has not played yet this season and isnt expected back for several more weeks, Nick Bjugstad and Jussi Jokinen have missed significant amounts of time and Alex Petrovic is now expected to miss up to two months with an ankle injury.Plus, Jaromir Jagr has just three goals so far this season after leading the Panthers in scoring a year ago. And while all that was taken into consideration, it wasnt enough to get Gallant and assistant coach Mike Kelly -- who also was fired -- any more time in Florida.Its a tough business, said Rowe, the Panthers 14th coach in their 23-year history. But when the results arent there, decisions have to be made that arent easy. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' ' 
LAS VEGAS -- A win over Brock Lesnar at UFC 200 will likely have zero effect on Mark Hunts ranking in the heavyweight division. http://www.italiacalciomaglia.it/maglie-blank-italia.html . It will, however, attract plenty of eyeballs, which is probably just as good.Hunt (12-10-1) will face Lesnar in the co-main event of the UFCs landmark feature on July 9 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The fight came together quickly, thanks to Lesnars exclusive contract status with his primary employer, the WWE. Hunt didnt even know he was fighting Lesnar (or anyone, for that matter) at UFC 200 until this month.Considering that Lesnar (5-2) hasnt fought since 2011, he doesnt offer much in terms of a ranked opponent -- especially to Hunt, 42, who is ranked No. 7 by ESPN.com and riding a two-fight winning streak. Obviously, the appeal of facing Lesnar lies completely in his star power, which Hunt is happy to cash in on.A win doesnt do anything for my ranking, Hunt admitted. But more people will be watching. I wanted to fight on this card and [UFC president Dana White] made it happen -- being added as the co-main event was kind of funny because of the timing, but hey, thanks Dana. Thanks Brock.The opportunity to fight a name like Lesnar in the co-main event of UFC 200 might have persuaded Hunt to agree to certain circumstances he otherwise wouldnt have -- or at the very least, it makes him care less about doing so.For one thing, it amounts to a short-notice fight. Hunt likes to indulge between fights, saying its not unusual for his weight to climb to well over 300 pounds. He has proved to be capable of cutting large amounts of weight in the past, but of course, the more time, the better. Ahead of this fight, hes looking at essentially one month.Its a short-notice fight, Hunt said. No excuses, it is what it is, but I found out about this fight the same time as everyone else. Had I known Id be fighting at UFC 200, I would have been training.When Im not in camp, Ive got young ones -- I stack [the weight] on with them. Ive promised myself three or four times I wouldnt put that weight on, but when youve got little ones, man, its all about convenience. Thats just what happens when youre a family guy. Ill get up over 300 pounds or something. I always lose it, but if you have to do it in two weeks, it will kill you.Hunt is also on the other side of the UFCs decision to waive a mandatory four-month drug-testing window for fighters coming out of retirement. Under the promotions anti-doping policy, Lesnar is supposed to be subjected to random testing before hes able to return to the active roster. However, the policy allows the UFC to waive that requirement at its discretion. Lesnar will be the first to receive such an exemption.As an active entertainer for WWE, Lesnar is subject to the companys drug-testing policy, which can include random testing. And for the record, Lesnar, a former UFC heavyweight champion, never tested positive for a banned substance during his MMA career. But Hunt does not appear to have much confidence in the WWE policy.At the end of the day, everyone should be on a level playing field, Hunt said. Ive been fighting cheaters my whole career. The thing is, when you are caught cheating, so to speak, that means you have to look back on your life and the accomplishments youve done and say, Did you really do them or was it the cheating that did them? Hey man, thats on them, not on me. I cant control it.WWE and their drug testing, thats sports entertainment, its not competition. This is entertainment, too -- but its real.Hunt, a native of New Zealand who now fights out of Australia, says hes confident in his ability to handle Lesnars wrestling background, which includes an NCAA Division I national title. His fight at UFC 200 will be the first of a new six-fight deal he signed earlier this year. And although Lesnar doesnt represent a top-10 opponent, he might be a major step in making sure a title shot is part of that contract.I dont know if it will get out of the first round, maybe the second, said Hunt, when asked for a prediction. His game plan is to get me down. My game plan is to knock his face off. http://www.italiacalciomaglia.it/maglie-manolo-gabbiadini-italia.html . PAUL, Minn. http://www.italiacalciomaglia.it/maglie-stefano-okaka-italia.html .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Tripped or not, it seems nothing can stop Mo Farah over 10,000 meters in a major championship. Justin Houston Chiefs Jersey .Not his training partner clipping his heel in the Olympic final. Not the assembled power of Kenyas best trying to wear him down. Not the final kick of his rival Paul Tanui. Farah proved again he is in a league all his own, now right up there with the greatest in history.In a thrilling Olympic final, the Somali-born British runner even had time to put his hands on top of his head in the trademark Mobot sign, as well-known to distance runners as Usain Bolts to the world move.Its never easy but everyone knows what I can do, Farah said. I thought about all my hard work, and that it could all be gone in a minute.Farah has three Olympic gold medals now from two Olympics and is preparing for the defense of his 5,000 title next week. A good bet considering he has gold in all major races over the distance going back to 2011.Although hed welcome a little simpler race next Saturday.All was going to plan early on in the 10,000, when Farah was safely running in the pack with his American training partner Galen Rupp. Then, after 10 laps Rupp clipped his heel and Farah was down.I bumped into him, there was a lot of pushing, Rupp said. Suddenly, Farahs path to a gold medal was significantly more difficult.It did take a lot out of me, Farah said in a post-race interview with the BBC. I knew how hard Ive worked and I wasnt going to let that go.Then the Kenyans chimed in. Farah is known for his unmatched finishing kick, so wearing him down is the only way to win. And after his comeback from the fall, they would perhaps stand a chance. Not this time.Even when three Kenyan tried to push away from the pack with spurts of acceleration, there was no shaking Farah off.It was hard to pick myself up, but I believed in myself and the work I went through, he said.He took the lead with one kilometer to go, and usually that means the race is over. Yet this time, Tanui would not let go.A bunch of four trailed Farah at the bell, and Tanui saw his chance down the back straight to finally break Farahs hold on long-distance racing.No way. Farah produced yet another comeback and once he swerved past Tanui going into the final straight, he might as well have started his victory lap. He won in 27 minutes, 5.17 seconds. Tanui held on for silver in 27:05.64 and Tamirat Tola of Ethiopia took bronze.He fell to the track at the finish, his face down, trying hard to take it all in.A back-to-back long-distance double at the Olympics is a feat not achieved since Finn Lasse Viren did it the 1970s.---Follow Raf Casert on Twitter at http://twitter.com/rcasert Frank Zombo Chiefs Jersey .

SEATTLE -- The Apple Cup is rarely this significant.Sure, the rivalry has gone through plenty of years where either Washington or Washington State had a significant stake in the outcome. But rarely has there been so much riding on this game as there will be Friday when the No. 6 Huskies and the No. 23 Cougars meet for the 109th time.This is just the sixth time both teams are ranked entering their rivalry week. Its also the first time in 35 years that a shot at the Rose Bowl -- at minimum -- will be at stake for the winner.Its a lofty place for both programs and has fans on each side in agreement: this could be the biggest Apple Cup ever.These kids have been all in on like every game, so to say, OK, this ones like . I dont know. I just want them to prepare like they have and go over and compete like they have, which I know they will, Washington coach Chris Petersen said Monday. We know its like all this hard work kind of comes down to this. But its really hard for me to say, like, `OK, now were really all in on this. I just think theyve really been invested this whole year, every game, and I think thats what youve kind of seen. But itll be exciting.Its not as simple as it was 35 years ago when the then-No. 17 Huskies beat the No. 14 Cougars 23-10 in Seattle to claim the Pac-10 title and a spot in the Rose Bowl. The winner on Friday still must win the conference championship game over the Pac-12 South winner to assure themselves of at least a spot in Pasadena.That 1981 game was the third time both schools were ranked. The other games:- 2001: No. 16 Huskies 26, No. 9 Cougars 14- 1997: No. 11 Cougars 41, No. 17 Huskies 35 (win sent Washington SState to the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1930 season)- 1972: No. Markus Kuhn Giants Jersey. 20 Cougars 27, No. 17 Huskies 10- 1936: No. 6 Huskies 40, No. 20 Cougars 0The past two weeks have taken a bit of luster off the meeting.Washingtons loss at home to Southern California and Washington States setback at Colorado diminished some of the significance.Washington State (8-3, 7-1 Pac-12) no longer has a path to the Rose Bowl via just a win over the Huskies; the Cougars only hope for a trip to Pasadena would come through winning the Pac-12 title game.Washington (10-1, 7-1) lost any wiggle room it had in the College Football Playoff rankings and must beat the Cougars and win the Pac-12 championship game to have a shot at being in the final four.I didnt think we played together particularly well, Leach said Monday of the loss to Colorado. (I) thought we should have played together better. I thought that was the case team-wide.The beginning of the week wasnt without distractions for the Huskies, who were dealing with the departure of reserve cornerback Darren Gardenhire on Monday. Gardenhire first posted on his Instagram page that he was transferring and Petersen later confirmed that Gardenhire is no longer with the program. Petersen said the decision was a bit of a surprise.Gardenhire appeared in 11 games and had 13 tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery.Difference in philosophy is probably the best way to put it, Petersen said.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '

WEST POINT, N.Y. -- After two straight narrow losses, Army got back on track Saturday -- halfway through its most promising season in years.Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 109 yards and a touchdown, fellow quarterback Chris Carter threw for two scores and Army beat Lafayette 62-7.Against a Lafayette team facing its first FBS squad since a 41-14 loss to the Black Knights in 1997, Armys triple option returned to form after last weeks 13-6 loss at Duke, with a season-high 671 yards of offense, 379 in the first half.The Black Knights rushing attack -- which came in ranked No. 2 in the nation -- was good for 537 yards as Army (4-2) racked up 31 first downs.If we cant run the ball effectively, were not going to do much on offense, Army coach Jeff Monken said. We certainly were able to do that today.The Leopards, who never led, gained just 10 rushing yards on 17 carries and dropped to 1-18 all-time against Army. Coming off a 58-34 loss to Fordham in which it gave up 516 yards on the ground, Lafayette (1-6) had no answers in its first look at an option offense.The Leopards had to punt on their first five possessions, and Army kept capitalizing with touchdowns thanks to strong blocking up front.The Black Knights scored first when Bradshaw sprinted down the right sideline for a career-long 60-yard touchdown run. Soon after, Jordan Asberry ran it in off a pitch from the 20 to give Army a 14-0 lead with 2:30 left in the first.Jordans a very good player. All of our slots have very good speed and make the game easier for me when I hand it to them, Bradshaw said.Carter ran for a 19-yard touchdown before Bradshaw found Jeff Ejekam inside the right edge of the end zone to put Army up 28-0 midway througgh the second quarter. Rob Ninkovich Patriots Jersey. Perhaps the prettiest play was Carters 59-yard touchdown heave over the middle to Asberry on the first play of Armys next series.Drew Reed was back under center after missing most of Lafayettes past two games with a head injury. The Leopards offense mostly relies on the pass, and Reed completed four of his first five attempts before finishing 21 for 36 for 205 yards and two interceptions.Lafayette coach Frank Tavani said it was the worst he had ever felt after a game.It looked like we didnt want to play. It was disgusting and embarrassing, the 17-year Leopards coach said.Blaik Field featured a painted 28 at each 28-yard line in honor of sophomore corner Brandon Jackson, who died in a car crash a day after the Black Knights last home game on Sept. 10.THE TAKEAWAYLafayette: Since beating Central Connecticut State in the opener, Lafayette has now dropped six straight -- five of those defeats by double digits. The loss also clinched a seventh straight losing season for Lafayette.Army: The fact that Lafayettes only victory in the series came 76 years ago meant this was a game the Black Knights had to have as they seek their first bowl game berth since 2010.BY THE NUMBERS: Armys offense had 31 first downs and its defense kept Lafayette to 10 rushing yards.BACK AT IT: After being dormant for nearly two decades, the Lafayette-Army series, which dates to 1893, continues in 2018.UP NEXT:Lafayette: The Leopards have a conference matchup at Bucknell on Saturday.Army: The Black Knights stay home to face North Texas on Saturday.

DELAND, Fla. Germain Ifedi Seahawks Jersey . -- Grant Kraemer threw for 334 yards and a career-high five touchdowns and Drake cruised to a 45-17 win over Stetson in the regular season finale for both teams on Saturday.The win gives Drake (7-4, 6-2 Pioneer Football League) four straight to close out the year, while Stetson (4-7, 2-6) finished on a four-game losing streak.Kraemers primary targets were Grant Menard and Eric Saubert. Menard caught seven for 95 yards and three scores, while Saubert had 131 yards and the remaining two of Kraemers five TDs.Conley Wilkins added 140 yards rushing for Drake, which piled up 565 yards total.The score was tied at 17 at the break, but a pair of TD passes by Kraemer in the third and another midway through the fourth put the game away.Cole Mazza led the Hatters with 114 yards rushing and a touchdown.

Speaking Thursday on TSN 1050 Thursday, the Leafs GM also touched on the questions surrounding the teams leadership and the struggles of his big-name free-agent signing. “Its not from lack of effort from the coaching staff. VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Vancouver Canucks are being rewarded for giving youth a chance.Not exactly by choice.Despite being ravaged by injuries to key defensemen Alex Edler (finger) and Chris Tanev (ankle), and winger Jannik Hansen (ribs), the Canucks won two straight games and six of their last 10 (6-3-1) heading into Thursdays contest against the Anaheim Ducks.In other words, times have changed since the Canucks (10-11-2) suffered nine straight losses earlier in the season. But they are still looking to for more consistency.Its been tough -- win one, lose one, win one, second-year defenseman Ben Hutton, who stood out in Vancouvers semi-surge. Hopefully we can continue to roll with it and get on a nice little streak here.With Edler out, Hutton, 23, and rookie rearguard Troy Stecher, 22, stepped to the fore and helped the Canucks generate more offense as indicated in Tuesdays 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Wild. Hutton furnished a goal and an assist while Stecher provided two assists. More importantly, the duo figured in two power-play goals with Hutton scoring one and Stecher assisting on another.As a result, the Canucks power play scored twice in two minutes -- after only scoring once in three weeks during first quarter of the season.You gotta like that, Canucks coach Willie Desjardins said. They are both young guys and what I like about both those guys is they want to do it. They dont look for somebody else to do it. They want the puck and they want to make something happen -- and you want that. Sometimes you will make mistakes with it, but in the end that is what you are going to win with.Youth is also paying dividends up front as winger Sven Baertschi, 24, playing his second full NHL season, and center Bo Horvat, 21, a third-year player, form an effective lline with veteran winger Alex Burrows. Richard Sherman Seahawks Jersey. Baertschi scored two goals against the Wild and, following a slow start to the season, has three goals and 10 points.I like that line, Desjardins said. That line has been good, and (Horvat) is a real catalyst on that line -- hes a real driver. He comes with speed and he comes hard and every shift he is like that. Its been a good line for us.Horvat, who is repeatedly mentioned as a future captain candidate, leads the Canucks with eight goals and eight assists. His 16 points are two better than perennial team scoring leaders Daniel and Henrik Sedin.A rejuvenated Burrows, 35, who once played regularly with the Sedins but has become a role player in the past two seasons, has four goals and five assists and is well on pace to exceed the 22 points he posted last season.Meanwhile, the Ducks (11-8-4) are also getting offense from some unsung heroes. Rickard Rakell leads Anaheim in goals with nine after netting the winner against Montreal on Tuesday.It seems like Im finding the right spot to put the puck in right now, Rakell, a 23-year-old Sweden native who signed a new six-year contract in October, told The Orange County Register. Im just trying to keep it going. Im not thinking about it too much. Its obviously fun to score goals.The Ducks are also getting some timely goals from the blue line. Defenseman Cam Fowler scored his seventh goal of the season against Montreal and has already exceeded the five he mustered in 2015-16.Goaltender John Gibson also has a chance to build on a strong performance against Montreal if he gets the nod. Gibson matched a career-high 39 saves in the win over the Canadiens. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' ' 
India 317 for 4 (Kohli 151*, Pujara 119, Anderson 3-44) v England Scorecard and ball-by-ball detailsIt was a day of firsts at the Dr. Nike Roshe Two Flyknit . Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam. The first day of the first Test at what is now the 111th such venue in world cricket, and quite possibly the first occasion on which a pitch invasion by a stray dog has brought about an early tea interval.But, notwithstanding a trio of breakthroughs for Englands returning attack leader, James Anderson, who was playing in his first competitive fixture since August, it was also a day dominated by numbers three and four - specifically Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli, who compiled a masterful pair of hundreds in a 226-run stand for Indias third wicket that has, for the first time in this series, given their side unequivocal control of the contest.England, emulating their wholehearted efforts in the drawn first match at Rajkot, started the day with a flourish and finished it with a grind, digging deep on all fronts - with seam and spin, new ball and old - to demand that India had to work hard for their runs. But by the close, with Kohli still in situ on 151 not out, his 14th century in his 50th Test appearance, the task awaiting them was already looking formidable.Indias overnight scoreline of 317 for 4 was everything that Kohli could have wished for after winning a vital toss. First-innings runs, on a wicket that neither captain expects to last five days, will be a critical aspect of this contest, and Alastair Cook had cut an almost condemned figure after missing out on the chance to have first use. Now weve got nothing to lose, he admitted after calling incorrectly. He might wish to revise that assessment now.Ominously for England, there had been glimmers of the assistance that the pitch is likely to offer at every juncture of Indias day, including signs of turn and uneven bounce for the spinners and indications of reverse swing in the evening session. Anderson, in particular, tried desperately to exploit that aspect in a wholehearted five-over spell that yielded the vital scalp of Pujara for 119. And then, with two overs of the day remaining, he struck with his third delivery with the second new ball to unseat a tentative Ajinkya Rahane for 23.But up until those late intercessions, such was the quality of Indias third-wicket stand that England had little option but to cling onto the batsmens coat-tails and seek to manage the speed of their progress, rather than the inevitability.England certainly started their days work with a flourish. Stuart Broad struck with his fifth ball of the match as KL Rahul, Gautam Gambhirs replacement at the top of the order, fenced outside off to poke a sharp catch to third slip, before Anderson, fit again after three months out with a fractured shoulder blade, suckered Murali Vijay with a bouncer to leave India perilously placed on 22 for 2 after five overs.But Pujara, fresh from his first-innings century at Rajkot, and Kohli, whose masterful 49 not out had averted calamity on the final afternoon of that match, were precisely the right pair to set aside the scoreline and play the conditions as placidly as they were - at this stage - proving to be. Chances to unsettle their progress were few and far between, as is often the way in the subcontinent, and England were left ruing two fleeting moments in particular: first, a crazy over from Adil Rashid midway through the morning session, when Pujara might have run himself out twice in three deliveries - his belated response to Kohlis clip to midwicket was especially close to curtains.And then, in a moribund passage of play in the first hour after lunch, Kohli was dropped on the hook by Rashid at fine leg when he had 56. Ben Stokes by this stage had settled into an aggressive back-of-a-length line in a bid to slow Indias progress to a crawl and Kohli, who had survived a similar miscue for his second boundary of the day off Anderson, took the bait but Rashids fingers couldnt spring the trap.It would prove to be a costly miss, but it was Pujara who responded most immediately to that sense that England had lost control of the contest. He signalled Indias charge in the final half-an-hour of the afternoon session by lambasting Zafar Ansari for six and four in consecutive deliveries, before making a mockery of Broads 8-1 off-side field by picking the solitary gap at backward point for his 11th four of the innings.As Cook fumbled for his options, Moeen Ali, Englands senior spinner, was curiously overlooked until the 40th over of the innings - an inexplicable delay, notwithstanding the early control that Rashid in particular had been able to exert. Instead, armed with a flat ball, he encountered Kohli in full exhibition mode and his seventh over was banished for three fours through cover, third man and mid-on respectively.It was the left-arm spin of Ansari to whom Cook first turned, in the 11th over of the innings, but despite his tendency in his first two Tests to create chances, today his 12 overs were milked for 45 runs. Both Pujara and Kohli had surged into the nineties when the afternoon session was brought to a close four balls early, when a local mutt chose to lead the groundstaff on such a merry dance that the umpires pointed the players to the pavilion.The distraction might well have played into Englands hands - not even the most assured of cricketers like to dwell over their landmarks. But Pujara in particular was not standing on ceremony. A yawning six off Rashid, high over the midwicket boundary, brought up his tenth Test century from 184 deliveries, and his third in succession, following on from his whitewashing-sealing effort against New Zealand at Indore last month.Kohli followed suit three overs later, with a punch through the covers to welcome Anderson back for his third spell, and before the close he had marched past 150 for the fourth time in Tests, with scarcely a shot out of place. He had one last moment of good fortune on the stroke of 80 overs, when he missed a reverse-sweep against Moeen that was shown, on review, to have been clipping leg. England took the second opinion in the knowledge that they would be getting their top-ups one delivery later. It was a shot to nothing, and nothing was the upshot.By the close, Englands worries werent limited to the scoreline, or the state of the wicket, which was already showing significant rough in the bowlers footmarks. The fitness of Broad was also a significant concern. His morning spell had been prematurely - and inconveniently - halted after three overs when he reopened a cut on his right wrist while diving in the outfield, and though he did front up to bowl a solitary new-ball over before the close, he appeared to be hobbling badly and had already left the field for a change of boots.England will need a change of something if they are to haul their way back to parity in this contest, but not for the first time, it was their application, not their attitude, that had been found wanting. Anderson, armed with the new ball and a good nights sleep, might be their best hope. But Kohli already has 151 reasons to be supremely satisfied with Indias position. Nike Roshe Two Baratas .

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs had one of baseballs best lineups during the regular season. Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant piled up big numbers, and Ben Zobrist, Dexter Fowler and Addison Russell contributed to a well-rounded attack.It has been feast or famine so far in the playoffs.The Cubs were shut out for the fourth time in their last eight postseason games when they lost 1-0 to Cleveland in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday night, handing home-field advantage right back to the Indians. Not even Kyle Schwarber could save the NL champions this time around.We were just out of the zone way too often, manager Joe Maddon said. Weve got to get our strike zones organized offensively, and if we do, well be fine.The Fall Classic returned to Wrigley Field for the first time in 71 years, attracting a raucous crowd of 41,703 and packing the bars and restaurants that surround the cozy neighborhood ballpark. Some of the fans dressed up in Cubs-related costumes, and there were periodic cellphone flashes in the stands all night long.But there wasnt very much for them to cheer about, especially when the Cubs were at the plate. Josh Tomlin pitched two-hit ball into the fifth inning, and Clevelands stellar bullpen took over from there.Fly-ball pitcher with the wind blowing out, its crazy how we dont hit fly balls, Rizzo said. Its the way it is. We knew its not going to be easy. Been in this situation before last series and we just got to come back and do what we do.Fowler, Bryant, Rizzo and Zobrist, the top four hitters in Chicagos lineup, went 3 for 15 with a walk. Javier Baez, the co-MVP of the NLCS along with pitcher Jon Lester, came up empty in two big spots.When youre facing good pitching, sometimes it happens, Zobrist said. We didnt have a lot of opportunities today. Tomlin pitched well and then their bullpen pitched well.Maddon went to Schwarber in the eighth, but Indians reliever Bryan Shaw broke his bat on aa weak popup to second. Maillot De Foot Dimitri Payet. Schwarber was one of the stars of the Cubs 5-1 victory in Game 2 on Wednesday night, contributing a pair of RBI singles, but he is relegated to pinch-hitting duties while the series in Chicago because he hasnt been cleared to play the field following major left knee surgery in April.The Cubs had one last chance in the ninth, putting runners on second and third with two out. But Indians closer Cody Allen struck out Baez with a high fastball , completing a five-hitter for Clevelands major league-record fifth shutout of the playoffs. Baez also bounced to shortstop with a runner on third for the final out in the seventh.Chicago went 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position and is batting .133 (4 for 30) in those situations in the series.I thought maybe the first game here with all the hoopla going on, it may have had somewhat of an impact for our young guys, Maddon said. But I have all the confidence in the world well fix it by tomorrow and work better at-bats.Game 4 is Saturday night, and it doesnt get any easier for Chicago. Corey Kluber goes on short rest for Cleveland after striking out nine in a dominant performance in the Indians 6-0 victory in Game 1. John Lackey pitches for the Cubs.Chicago, which scored more than 800 runs during the regular season for the first time since 2008, also was shut out in Games 2 and 3 in the NL Championship Series against Los Angeles. The Cubs then won three in a row to advance, outscoring the Dodgers 23-6 along the way.I dont think anybody is going to hang their head after today, Zobrist said. Its one game. Were still in a good position, 2-1. We came back and won three in a row last series so we knew we were going to have to beat Kluber anyway.---Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '
