We continue to celebrate Sky Sports 25th birthday this week, by looking back at some of the most memorable moments from the last quarter of a century. http://www.bengalsrookiestore.com/Bengals-Kevin-Minter-Jersey/ . One highlight came in 2014 when England claimed the biggest prize in women’s rugby by beating Canada in the World Cup final.After three successive final defeats to New Zealand, England finally got their hands on the coveted trophy thanks to a 21-9 victory over Canada in Paris. 25 years...25 moments Vote for your favourite moment on Sky Sports Emily Scarratt inspired the victory, scoring a decisive solo try late in the game and kicking 11 points from the tee. Danielle Waterman grabbed the only other try of the contest.Canada closed to within two points during the second half thanks to Magali Harveys penalties, but Scarratts late score killed off any threat of a comeback.England fielded 11 survivors from the team that started the 2010 World Cup final against New Zealand, and the pain of that 13-10 loss had been a motivating factor for captain Katy Mclean and her players. England celebrate with the Rugby World Cup trophy Former England head coach Clive Woodward, who guided the mens team to World Cup glory in 2003, tweeted: Massive congrats to @EnglandRugby ladies-only get one chance at this usually and you delivered - brilliant and enjoy it all.The Prime Minister David Cameron, tweeted: “Huge congratulations to @EnglandRugby Women on their first World Cup triumph in 20 years.

"No difference at all," chirped U.S. roommate and linemate James van Riemsdyk. "Its still the same cranky Phil. http://www.bengalsrookiestore.com/Bengals-Anthony-Munoz-Jersey/ . Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured. Collaros also started Torontos 23-20 regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks to play that day. http://www.bengalsrookiestore.com/Bengals-Cedric-Peerman-Jersey/ . Only three players drafted by NHL clubs were included on the Czech selection camp roster on Wednesday. Those players were Dallas Stars 2012 first-rounder Radek Faksa, Winnipeg Jets 2013 fourth-rounder Jan Kostalek and Phoenix Coyotes 2012 seventh-rounder Marek Langhamer. CINCINNATI -- After skipping his previous turn in the rotation, Miami Marlins right-hander Jose Fernandez continues his pursuit of the National League strikeout crown Thursday night when he faces the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.Fernandez (12-6, 2.81 ERA) has 198 Ks in 137 1/3 innings, second in the league behind Washington Nationals right-hander Max Scherzer, who has 211 strikeouts.However, Miami manager Don Mattingly wants his hard-throwing 24-year old to learn how to put batters away earlier in the count, thus limiting his pitches and extending outings.We dont talk a lot about his strikeouts, Mattingly said. We talk about him learning to pitch more. Keep himself in games. Keep his pitch count down. Pitch to contact. Part of that is to get early outs.Mattingly referenced Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, whom he managed in Los Angeles. While Kershaws strikeout totals were high, so were his innings totals.Theres a way to do it, Mattingly said. It cant be 3-2 strikeouts. You cant be missing 1-2, missing 3-2, then you get a strikeout. Thats putting an extra one to two pitches on every batter.Fernandez will be facing Cincinnati for the fifth time in his career. He is 2-1 with a 2.52 ERA and 26 strikeouts in 25 innings vs. the Reds.The Marlins skipped his last start in an effort to limit his innings. Ideally, Fernandez will be kept around the 180-inning mark.Fernandezs fastball is common knowledge. However, his breaking ball is something hitters still are adjusting to, according to Mattingly.Joses got a knack for knowing how to use his breaking ball, the manager said. Hes got a great breaking ball. He throws in the upper 90s, so you have to get going. That puts you in danger against anything that breaks late and breaks big. Hes added the (changeup), which works well with his fastball.Cincinnati is batting .269 since thee All-Star break, led by first baseman Joey Vottos torrid . http://www.bengalsrookiestore.com/Bengals-William-Jackson-Jersey/. .451 clip.The Reds will send one of their more dependable starters to the mound on Thursday, right-hander Dan Straily (8-6, 3.75 ERA).Straily will be making his 26th appearance of the season and 23rd start. Opponents are hitting just .215 against him, the ninth-best mark in the NL. He hasnt walked a batter in his last 16 2/3 innings and hasnt issued a free pass to a right-hander hitter since July 22.Straily has produced quality starts in seven of his past eight starts.Cincinnati (50-69) hopes to have all hands on deck against Fernandez on Thursday after a series of minor injuries caused regulars to miss games during the four-game series against Miami.Center fielder Billy Hamilton missed two starts since leaving Mondays game after a pair of collisions with the outfield wall.Left fielder Adam Duvall fouled a pitch off his left foot on Monday and was in a boot on Wednesday. It is doubtful Duvall will be back in time for the Thursday game.There is no fracture, manager Bryan Price said of Duvall. He was hit on one of those spots that you dont want to be hit. We decided immobilizing it was the way to go. We think hell be out a couple days.Second baseman Brandon Phillips had a knee contusion but returned to the Reds lineup on Wednesday in a big way with a pair of doubles, one of which drove in the tying and go-ahead runs, and two sensational defensive plays in a 6-3 Cincinnati win.Miami (62-58) is looking to keep pace in the NL wild-card race. After dropping two of the first three against the Reds, the Marlins are two games behind the St. Louis Cardinals and one game back of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the chase for the second wild card.

Greater Western Sydney coach Leon Cameron predicts injury-plagued forward Jon Pattons best is yet to come after an uncommonly slow path to his 50th AFL game. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Xavier-Woods-Jersey/ .Patton will attain the milestone on Saturday against Gold Coast, but two knee reconstructions and a patella tendon injury have stalled his passage to the landmark.It has taken the 2011 No.1 draft pick almost five seasons and he has played in under half of the Giants first 106 games.It has been a long journey for him, Cameron said.Hes started to create a bit more consistency in his game of footy after being out for so long.Talls naturally take a little bit longer than most players, but hes had a number of setbacks the last four and a half, five years.But his persistence; I reckoned hes learnt a lot about going through a rehab program and what footy means to him.Does he want to go the extra yard? Can he push himself through to actually get to the ultimate and thats playing AFL footy let alone playing 50 games, so its a fine achievement from Jon.We look forward to seeing him progress week after week and hes an integral part of the lineup right now and he knows that every week he rolls out, hes thankful that he can play footy again.Id say the best is yet to come, I absolutely think so.Hes only five years in, really hes probably only two years in because of the injuries hes sustained.But I think hes really starting to grasp what AFL footy is about week in week out and rocking up to play, so hes got a lot of work to do still, but were definitely happy that hes on the right track.Patton is currently riding a career-best streak of 17 consecutive games.He has kicked 19 goals this season, putting him in joint fifth position at the club in that category.Cameron values Pattonss versatility.He can go down and play key back and also a little bit on the weekend he played in the ruck as well, Cameron said.He has also paid tribute to the increasing toughness of ruckman-forward Rory Lobb, who is enjoying a breakout season.Lobb is working hard to overcome a knee injury and play this weekend.He was just a stick figure when he first arrived, Cameron said of Lobb.Hes worked extremely hard to put on some weight and some muscle.But his hardness through the last 18 months has actually gone through the roof.Hes only a third-year player and sometimes weve got to pinch ourselves to say his development has probably exceeded expectations. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Robert-Newhouse-Jersey/ . Rousey will put her perfect 8-0 record and hardware on the line against another undefeated fighter, 7-0 Sara McMann in the main event of UFC 170, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas Nevada on February 22nd. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Hoodie/ . "Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Lp-Ladouceur-Jersey/ . Pettersen, winner of last years Evian Championships, had nine birdies and three bogeys, holding off a series of challengers led by Marion Ricordeau of France. The second-ranked Norwegian made her season debut after missing the LPGA Tours opening event last month in the Bahamas because of a shoulder injury. Yorkshire 281 and 143 for 2 (Lyth 56) lead Hampshire 222 by 202 runsScorecard If you sit in the Ageas Bowl for a Championship match when the crowd is made up of a few hundred people you can hear the steady whir of the motorway just a few hundred metres down the road; a reminder that cricket or no cricket the rest of the world continues as it always has done. Things are happening, people are moving.At 3.46pm on this bleak September day, with the square and pitch under covers and the floodlights on, the dull drone of the motorway was interrupted by the tannoy system at the ground crackling into life to announce the other scores from around the country. The cricket in Southampton may have been halted by dank rain and miserable light but elsewhere life went on, and so too did cricket.Few things can have been more galling for Hampshire and Yorkshire, both sides desperate to play in search of crucial points at the top and bottom of the table, than to hear the scores from Chester-le-Street and Edgbaston called out as they looked out over thousands of empty seats and a pitch totally obscured by covers.As the PA completed his round-up, through Old Trafford, Derby, Wantage Road and Chelmsford, the scores echoing around the ground were replaced once more by the din of the motorway and the sound of rain on the covers. That was about as frustrating as it has been all year today, Yorkshires captain Andrew Gale said, after play was finally called off for the day at 5.36pm with just 19 overs of disjointed cricket possible in which Yorkshire added 74 to their overnight lead.It is strange really. Moments like Ryan Sidebottoms wicket of Sean Ervine on day two of this match feel significant in the arc of the season. Yet days curtailed by rain and bad light such as this often do not. Perhapps thats because this is sport and we look to moments that happen as opposed to dont happen. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Zack-Martin-Jersey/. Yet with Middlesex looking to force a result in Birmingham and Nottinghamshire and Durham collecting valuable points in their match, days like this in Southampton - when possible wins become likely draws, points appear to slip away and ground is lost - can shape entire seasons.Equally, a teams ability to turn days such as these to their own advantage can be season-defining too. Whisper it quietly but it is an ability you would expect to find in champions.Heading into the final day Yorkshire lead by 202 runs with eight wickets remaining. Despite this truncated third day, all four results are still possible and both teams are aware of the possibilities that a Yorkshire declaration could present. It is that time of the season when disparate matches all around the country suddenly appear to intertwine; the seasons tapestry finally coming together.It is in Yorkshires hands, Hampshires director of cricket, Giles White, admitted. They might view it that theyd like to force a result which might open the door for us but it is for them to make that call. Theyll have to weigh up what is happening with Middlesex at Edgbaston. Theyll have a think how long itll take them to bowl us out and make a call from there whether it is worth risking five points for sixteen.Would Gale take that risk? We will try and accelerate the game forward to get a result, he said, but we are not going to throw it away at this time of year. How many runs did he feel they would want? Ill sleep on it, he said, and with that he was gone, turning his back on a day of frustration.

What do you need to know about Thursday nights games? Joe McDonald gives us his take on the biggest and best performances. David Luiz Jersey . This is where we say, Morning, Joe.Great 8 debate: Washington Capitals Alex Ovechkin is one of the greatest offensive players of all time. The 31-year-old forward is closing in on 1,000 career points: He has 531 goals and 444 assists for 975 points in 849 games. He scored the winner when the Caps beat the Winnipeg Jets?4-3 in overtime Thursday, finishing the night with two goals and one assist. It was the 91st game-winner of his career, tying him with Wayne Gretzky and Mark Recchi for 19th on the NHLs all-time list. Ovechkins statistics are outstanding, and the Capitals finally have the team to win. They have a Vezina Trophy-winning goalie in Braden Holtby, a strong defensive core and strength up the middle. With Ovechkin dominating, theres no reason not to win. But unless he wins a Stanley Cup, Ovechkins career numbers wont matter. The time is now for No. 8.Not sanguine about Seguin: Im still trying to figure out what type of player Tyler Seguin will become. A pure goal scorer, Seguin had a career-high four assists to help the Dallas Stars snap a three-game losing skid with a 6-2 win over the St. Louis Blues. The 24-year-old highly skilled forward is a point-producing machine, already with 12 points in 10 games this season. He recorded 33 goals and 40 assists for 73 points in 72 games last season. Theres no doubt hes a dynamic player. His personality off the ice translates into his play and hes fun to watch. However, the second-overall pick in 2010 is fortunate to have won a Stanley Cup with the Boston Bruins in 2011, because its unlikely to happen anytime soon as long as he stays in Dallas. The Stars are an offensive juggernaut, but they have defensive deficiencies and goaltending issues, which are not qualities of a champion. Seguin is a younger version of the San Jose Sharks Joe Thornton: a talented player stuck on a team that cant win it all. Good thing Seguin won as a rookie.Marner garners respect: For all the talk about Auston Matthews, the?Toronto Maple Leafs?have another outstanding rookie who is fun to watch in?Mitch Marner, who scored twice as the Maple Leafs defeated the Buffalo Sabres 2-1. The fourth overall pick in 2015 has three goals and five assists for eight points in 11 games. Marner, 19, is a major part of the organizations rebuilding process and possesses dynamic offensive skill and instincts. Hes very creative with the puck, the norm for all the young talent in the league these days. Hes really good in the offensive zone and has no issues going into the hard areas. He needs to get stronger and that will come as he gets older and gains more experience. Without a doubt, he will become a high-end, skilled offensive producer. In todays game, hell also need to become a consistent two-way player, but hes off to a strong start to what should be a solid career. Charly Musonda Jersey . Bradwell was scheduled to become a free agent Tuesday. Born and raised in Toronto, Bradwell is entering his sixth CFL season, with all six played for his hometown Argonauts. Olivier Giroud Jersey . Sulaiman, 44, was chosen unanimously Tuesday in a vote by the leadership, the World Boxing Council said.

But the quarterback hopes to stay involved in football after officially calling it quits Tuesday. "Id love to look at those opportunities as they arise," Pierce said in an interview from his Winnipeg eatery.

LEXINGTON, Va. Braden Smith Jersey . -- Tyrell Nelson scored 19 points and grabbed six rebounds as Gardner-Webb beat VMI 86-68 on Saturday night.Nelson was 9 of 14 from the field for the Bulldogs (4-4).

Julian Eleby had five 3-pointers for 15 points. Malik Hooker Jersey .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. Kemoko Turay Jersey . The Islanders dealt Thomas Vanek to the Montreal Canadiens after less than a year on Long Island. Meanwhile, the Oilers dealt long-time sniper Ales hemsky to the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday for a fifth-round pick in 2014 and a third-rounder in 2015. http://www.coltsfansshop.com/Colts-Margus-Hunt-Draft-Jersey/ . PAUL, Minn. SARASOTA, Fla. -- The noontime sun blazes relentlessly as players from the rookie-level Gulf Coast League affiliates of the Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox engage in pregame stretching and throwing. Each player has the same career goal, but the one wearing the No. 21 jersey for the Orioles undoubtedly has the most intriguing background. Hes the only one wearing a microphone with a documentary crew following him. Hes the only one who answers to a cartoonish nickname. Hes the only one who received worldwide attention simply by signing his name on a contract.Hes the one trying to become the first Chinese player by birth and ancestry to play in the major leagues (two American players born in China have reached the majors).Twenty-year-old Xu Guiyuan (pronounced shoo GEE-win) seems somewhat embarrassed by the fuss. He graciously accommodates the media, even though he almost certainly would be more comfortable plying his trade without all the attention. Its valuable experience, however, just like batting, running, throwing and fielding. Because if he does get called up to the majors someday, its going to be a very big deal to millions of people.Playing first base, Xu makes an error on his first fielding chance of the game -- Thats no good for the TV, manager Orlando Gomez jokes in the dugout -- before settling down as the Orioles turn a double play to get out of the inning.Xu grew up in Shenzhen, a growing city near Hong Kong with an estimated population of more than 10 million. He didnt touch a baseball until he was 10 years old, but before long he joined his older brother in playing the sport at school. By age 14, Xu was recruited to the MLB development center in Wuxi, a city of about 6 million in the Jiangsu province. He jumped at the opportunity even though the academy, the first of its kind in that nation, is almost 1,000 miles from Shenzhen.It was there that he acquired his nickname: Itchy. One of the coaches asked players what they wanted to be called, and Xu invoked the name of Ichiro Suzuki.I liked Ichiro, and I wanted to be called Ichiro, Xu said. But my coach said, Too many people are called Ichiro. Then, he called me Itchy. In the beginning, I didnt know what Itchy means. Then when I learned English, then I know. But Im already used to it.Xu was first recruited by MLB International as a left-handed pitcher, but it wasnt long before he showed aptitude as a hitter. Former Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Jesse Litsch coached at the Wuxi academy while Xu was there. Litsch said Xu was clearly the top prospect, and he tried to give him an idea of how to handle the daily rigors and lifestyle of being a professional ballplayer.As far as ability, he definitely stood out, said Litsch, who now serves as pitching coach for the Bridgeport Bluefish of the independent Atlantic League. Hes the one who hit the balls over the fence. Hes the one that showed the most potential -- not only as a player, as a person too, with his [speaking] English and stuff like that. That plays a big factor in it also.By 2015, Xu had shown enough promise for the Orioles to make him the first player from an MLB academy in China to sign a pro contract.Baltimore general manager Dan Duquette has seen baseball grow internationally over the past three decades. He was scouting director of the Milwaukee Brewers in 1987 when they signed Dave Nilsson, who became the first player to reach the majors after being signed directly from Australia. Duquette fully realizes the significance of signing Xu.Its a milestone in that hes the first player from mainland China, Duquette said. We hope hes the first of many. This is the start of the process.Xu is 6-foot, 185 pounds and bats and throws left-handed. He was listed as a first baseman for much of the season but also has seen time at the corner outfield spots, perhaps a more logical fit for a player his size. He said he doesnt care what position hes playing as long as he gets to keep playing and practicing.Playing defense is a little bit of a challenge, Xu said. Its a struggle, but Im getting better.Against the Red Sox, Xu records the first out of the third inning by digging a throw from the third baseman out of the dirt. When he makes a similar play the following inning, a teammate shouts, Go Itchy. For the final out of the eighth, he scoops up a grounder and carefully flips the ball to his pitcher on the move. At the plate, Xu bats eighth and goes 1-for-3 with a solid single to center.Gomez sees the improvement, but he also has to juggle a 34-man roster. To get in the lineup consistently, a player must perform consistently. Xu started thee season impressively, batting . Al Woods Jersey. 500 (12-for-24) in his first nine games. Since then, hes hitting .143 (8-for-56). Through Tuesday, with two games remaining in the season, he was batting .250 with an OPS of .561 in 32 games overall.Hes making some progress, Gomez said. In the long run, I think hes going to be a better outfielder [than first baseman]. The knowledge of the game is getting better, and that helps a lot. Im happy with the way hes really coming around.Xu faces a steeper learning curve than most of his peers. Hes competing against pitchers with more velocity and movement than he ever saw in China.The speed of the game is something that he has improved on, said GCL Orioles hitting coach Milt May, who played 15 seasons in the major leagues. Its still a work in progress, but hes made great strides along those lines. ... He has since become a pretty good fastball hitter, and thats to his credit. Hes a very teachable guy. Hes all ears. He asks questions and tries to apply things that you might suggest to him.Before he came to America, Xu watched baseball on his phone. With certain players, he would rewind their swings over and over in order to study their mechanics. In addition to Ichiro, he lists Mike Trout and fellow lefties Robinson Cano and Chris Davis among the major league hitters he likes to analyze. Now he watches games with an eye on learning the proper responses to various game situations.Xu lives in a hotel along with many of his teammates, and hes acclimating to life in the United States. Like many Americans his age, he eats a lot of burgers and burritos -- especially double chicken and double steak from Chipotle.Being halfway around the world from his family is difficult, Xu said, but hes committed to the process it will take to climb the organizational ladder. When training in Wuxi, he was far from his family, but at least they were in the same time zone. Now, with a time difference of 12 hours, communicating is considerably more difficult. He stays in touch via FaceTime once or twice a week.Itchy said he enjoys life in America, and being immersed in the culture helps him learn English at a faster pace. Although his background is unique, he said teammates have helped him a lot and made him feel welcome.Guys will joke with him, and he will joke back, Gomez said. The Latin players will give him a little bit of a hard time, and he gives them a hard time back. Before the year is over, he might be speaking Spanish, too.Meantime, MLB is committed to making inroads in China. In addition to the development center in Wuxi, MLB has established academies in the Jiangsu province cities of Changzhou and Nanjing. MLB also reached a deal prior to this season to stream 125 games per year online in China through 2018. The baseball talent pool in China is growing, and more prospects will likely be headed to the American minor leagues in the next decade.Basketballs popularity notably surged in China following the emergence of Shanghai-native Yao Ming in the early 2000s. Although it might not be realistic to expect comparable growth in baseball, MLB must be excited to see how much the game could grow when the first native-born player of Chinese heritage reaches the major leagues.Xu dreams of being the one to break that barrier. Hes well aware of his status as a torchbearer but said he doesnt feel pressure to succeed because of it. Instead, he tries to stay in the moment, remain prepared and give his best effort every day.I want to work hard, Xu said. Keep your goal. Keep your focus. Stay confident.Its difficult to project the potential of any prospect at the rookie level, especially with Xu, who is absorbing so much so quickly. His development over the next year will be telling, Gomez said. At that point, the Orioles talent evaluators will have a much clearer idea of what they have.Ive always said, Anybody whos got a uniform has got a chance, Gomez said. I think with one more year, you can tell what hes going to be.Indeed, the Orioles will know a lot more about Xu by next summer, but it typically takes several years to project a player with some certainty. That said, even if Itchy doesnt ultimately play in the major leagues, Duquette said Xu has a future in baseball if he so chooses, because his experience can help lay the groundwork for a talent pipeline between MLB and China.Im glad we signed him, Duquette said. At the very least, he can go back to China and teach baseball and continue the process.

Olympic champion Andy Murray shrugged off shoulder trouble and the fatigue that followed his heroics in Rio to reach the third round of the Western & Southern Open. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Thomas-Lemar-Jersey/ .On Sunday the Scot came through a gruelling four-set encounter with Juan Martin del Potro to win his second gold medal and barely three days later he was back on court, this time against another Argentinian, Juan Monaco, in Cincinnati.Murray needed treatment on his shoulder during a tricky first set but soon recovered from the niggle to close out a 6-3, 6-2 in one hour and 17 minutes.Its really humid here, quite different conditions to Rio, Murray told atpworldtour.com. The court here is pretty fast. Rio was a lot slower than this. It took a bit of time to get into it, but I did all right.I did two short sessions yesterday and two short sessions today. I sometimes find that rather than doing one long session, if youre going into new conditions, its a bit easier to do a couple of shorter sessions. I feel like I get my timing a bit quicker that way.His next opponent will be South Africas Kevin Anderson, who surprised 13th seed Richard Gasquet to win 6-2 6-4. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Jan-Oblak-Jersey/ .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Vitolo-Jersey/ . The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., captured a World Cup downhill event Saturday, his second this year and fifth career victory on the circuit. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Antonio-Adan-Jersey/ . The International Olympic Committee released the official list of bid cities on Friday after the deadline for applications had passed. The candidates -- all previously announced in their own countries -- are: Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing; Krakow, Poland; Lviv, Ukraine; Oslo, Norway; and Stockholm. For now, it appears Alan Pardew is content to be manager of Crystal Palace and not the England national team. With some of his players making significant contributions for their respective countries during the international break, he and the Eagles try to tighten the standings in the top half of the table Saturday against West Ham United at Selhurst Park.Following the departure of Sam Allardyce just 67 days into his tenure with the Three Lions, Pardews name was thrown about as a potential long-term candidate should interim boss and former Palace academy product Gareth Southgate falter in his four-match audition during World Cup qualifying.But with England taking four points from their two matches, all appears calm at St Georges Park -- aside from the usual hand-wringing with regards to their World Cup chances and Wayne Rooneys place in the side -- for now, so Pardew has one less distraction to worry about as he tries to keep Crystal Palace (3-2-2) among the leagues best.Palace may have been the one side who didnt want down time -- theyre unbeaten in their last five league matches (3-2-0) after opening with a pair of 1-0 defeats. They picked up a point at Goodison Park on Sept. 30 with a 1-1 draw on a goal by Christian Benteke, who then set a World Cup qualifying record by scoring for Belgium 8.1 seconds into their match to spark a 6-0 victory over Gibraltar on Monday.Benteke finished with three goals and has five in his last four contests for club and country, with his eight-minute stint as a sub versus Bosnia-Herzegovina on Oct. 7 his only barren spell in that span. Joe Ledley and keeper Wayne Hennessey helped Wales secure a pair of draws in their matches, Andros Townsend appeared off the bench for England against Slovenia but Bakary Sako may be a question mark after withdrawing from Malis squad due to injury prior to their qualifier against the Ivory Coast.While Pardew is seeking another fast eight-match start with Palace, West Ham United (1-1-5) are still trying to pinpoint a place to make a turnaround. The Hammers are in the relegation zone after their atrocious start, and their 17 goals shipped are a league-worst.There were, however, finally signs of life in London Stadium before the break as Dimitrii Payets stellar individual effort secured a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough on Oct. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Lucas-Hernandez-Jersey/. . 1. The France international slalomed his way past and around six Boro defenders before beating Victor Valdes from inside the penalty area in the 57th minute to wipe out Cristhian Stuanis goal six minutes prior.Payet carried his strong form into World Cup qualifying, scoring for Les Bleus in their win over Bulgaria and setting up Paul Pogbas match-winner in a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands.But there was also bad news as promising young defender Sam Byram was forced off the pitch inside 10 minutes with what the teams official website labeled a significant hamstring injury and may be sidelined for a month. Aaron Cresswell has resumed practicing with the first team, but Andre Ayew and Andy Carroll continue to be sidelined for prolonged periods of time.Those absences have given Jonathan Calleri the chance to make a name for himself after scoring 39 goals for All Boys, Boca Juniors and Sao Paulo the last two seasons in South America.The style of play here is very different and it can take a few months to settle in, Calleri told West Hams official website. I remember it took a while for Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano to settle in and then they did really well.We all remember how (Tevez) saved the club from relegation and I hope I can achieve just a quarter of what he achieved here.Transitioning to their new London Stadium digs has been difficult, but West Hams road form has been far worse -- the Hammers have been outscored 9-4 in their three away matches this season and failed to lead any of those contests.West Ham took four of six points between the teams last season, including a 3-1 victory in the corresponding fixture. Manuel Lanzinis goal two minutes from time proved the winner before Payet added an insurance tally in stoppage time. Carl Jenkinson and Yohan Cabaye traded goals three minutes apart in the first half.The Hammers have taken points in four of their last five trips to Selhurst Park (2-2-1), but Palace have gone 3-4-2 in the last nine matches overall between the teams.

                                      GLENDALE, Ariz. Leonard Fournette Jersey . -- The Winnipeg Jets young top line keeps racking up points.Winnipeg forwards Nikolaj Ehlers and Patrik Laine and center Mark Scheifele combined for three points -- giving the trio 26 in the past four games -- as Jets beat the Arizona Coyotes 3-2 on Thursday night.Ehlers scored at 16:46 of the third period with a fluky assist from Laine, as a failed clearance glanced off the rookies body to Ehlers. Scheifele logged an assist in the first period and has 10 assists and 19 points in 15 games this season.Blake Wheeler and Andrew Copp also scored goals, and the Jets won for the third time in four games and have earned at least a point in four of five.Theyre pretty skilled. You look up and down that line and theres a lot of skill, Copp said of the first line. Each one of them can shoot the puck. Theyve been doing really well for us putting the puck in the net.Winnipeg goalie Connor Hellebuyck, making his fourth straight start, made 23 saves, offsetting Louis Domingues 24 for the Coyotes.Ehlers sealed the win after Arizonas Oliver Ekman-Larsson tried to shoot the puck up ice from behind his own net. It hit Laine before Ehlers put it away for his 12th point of the season.Tobias Rieder scored for Arizona with 1.2 seconds to play, but the Coyotes ran out of time.They raised the level of their game and we didnt match it, Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. Our execution from the start of the second period on was not what it needs to be to give you a chance to win.We made some crucial errors and they finally capitalized on the one that Oliver made, he added.The Jets had only three shots in the first period.The Coyotes answered Copps goal at 9:48 when Jordan Martinook dug the puck out of the boards behind the net with two defenders nearby, sending it to Radim Vrbata for a goal from right of the face-off circle.Vrbata has five goals on the season and 104 points in 159 career games in November, his highest point total of any month.The Jets had two 2-minute power plays and failed to score on both. But one second after the second power play ended, Wheelers shot beat Domingue off a pass from Nic Petan at 10:18.The goal was Wheelers fourth of the season.Didnt really have our best game and found a way to win, Wheeler said.Max Domi assisted on Rieders goal, giving him 21 points in his last 21 home games. Coyotes captain Shane Doan also assisted on that goal and is one assist from tying Thomas Steen for the Coyotes franchise record of 553.Game notes The NHL fined Ekman-Larsson $2,000 as supplementary punishment for two embellishment calls against him in two games over the past two weeks. ... C Dylan Strome and D Kevin Connauton were scratched for the Coyotes. D Michael Stone also did not play, and has been dealing with an upper body injury that has limited him to only four games. ... D Mark Stuart (lower body injury), D Jacob Trouba and C Mathieu Perreault (upper body) were the Jets scratches. ... This was the first of three meetings this season between the teams. ... Pro golfer Jesper Parnevik attended Thursdays game and howled over a microphone for the crowd.UP NEXTJets: At Colorado on Friday night.Coyotes: Host Boston on Saturday night. Malik Jackson Jersey . How great will be revealed in the next couple of days at the board of governors meeting in Pebble Beach, Calif. Logan Cooke Jersey .

Heavyweight prospect Trey Lippe Morrison, the son of the late heavyweight titleholder Tommy Morrison, will make his television debut Sept. http://www.jetsrookiestore.com/Jets-Quincy-Enunwa-Jersey/ . 23 in front of a home-region crowd at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma.Lippe Morrison (11-0, 11 KOs), who is trained by Hall of Famer Freddie Roach, will take on Roc Nation Sports prospect Ed Latimore (13-0, 7 KOs) in a six-round fight that will open the ShoBox: The New Generation quadrupleheader on Showtime (10 p.m. ET/PT).Lippe Morrison, 26, is from Tulsa, Oklahoma, and has fought all but one of his bouts at Buffalo Run. He has faced limited opposition, as has the 31-year-old Latimore.Lippe Morrison, who turned pro in 2014, will be fighting for the first time since January because of an injury.I have worked so hard to get to this point and now this is my chance to show the world who I am, Lippe Morrison said. I want to thank Showtime for the opportunity. Latimore is a huge step up in class for me, but I am ready for it. Once I hear those Oklahoma fans and feel the energy inside the arena, I flip a switch and its go time. This is going to be my coming-out party.Latimore, a pro since 2013, owns amateur victories against former world titleholder Charles Martin and former world title challenger Dominic Breazeale, a 2012 U.S. Olympian.Morrison will be a real test for me, Latimore said. Its never easy to fight someone in their backyard. I just fought in my hometown of Pittsburgh, so I know the feeling coming into it and the momentum on fight night. I am looking forward to putting on a good show for all the fans in Oklahoma and those watching on ShoBox.In the main event between prospects, Radivoje Hot Rod Kalajdzic (21-1, 14 KOs), 25, will face Travis Peterkin (16-0-1, 7 KOs), 26, of Brooklyn, New York, in a scheduled 10-rounder. Kalajdzic, who hails from Bosnia and Herzegovina and lives in St. Petersburg, Florida, will be boxing for the first time since a controversial, nationally televised eight-round decision loss to unbeaten 2012 Olympian Marcus Browne on April 16.I am really excited about this fight and that I am on television again, fighting another undefeated southpaw, Kalajdzic said. I am continuing where I left off with training camp from my previous fight since its another southpaw, so I will be more than prepared. Hopefully, Peterkin comes to fight and not hug like my last opponent did so we can give the fans a good fight.Said Peterkin: I was ringside at Hot Rods last fight. I respect him, but I saw what his flaws are and will exploit them. I am anticipating a war. Brooklyn is coming to Oklahoma and I will not disappoint. On Sept. 23, greatness beckons.Also, junior welterweight prospect Ivan Baranchyk (11-0, 10 KOs), 23, a Byelorussia native fighting out of Brooklyn, will face Wang Zhimin (7-0, 3 KOs), 30, a China native based in Nutley, New Jersey, in the 10-round co-feature.The other televised match will feature Ukrainian welterweight prospect Ivan Golub (12-0, 10 KOs), a 27-year-old southpaw, taking on James Stevenson (23-2, 16 KOs), 33, of Baltimore, in a scheduled eight-round fight. http://www.jetsrookiestore.com/Jets-Leonard-Williams-Jersey/ .ca NBA Power Rankings, ahead of the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. http://www.jetsrookiestore.com/Jets-Rashard-Robinson-Jersey/ . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. http://www.jetsrookiestore.com/Jets-Muhammad-Wilkerson-Jersey/ . The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim. DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies will try to build on their walk-off win Friday night and clinch their series with the San Diego Padres on Saturday.The Rockies scored three runs in the ninth inning against Padres closer Brandon Maurer for an 8-7 victory. The winning hit was a pinch-single off the center-field wall by Daniel Descalso.The veteran infielders playing time has increased dramatically in the wake of shortstop Trevor Storys season-ending thumb injury on July 30. Descalso, who turns 30 next month, is in the final season of a two-year, $3.6 million contract after four full seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals.With St. Louis, Descalso played in 44 postseason games -- 25 more than the Rockies in their history -- including nine World Series games.Hes a winning player, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. Thats why we brought him in. One of the few guys in (the clubhouse) thats played in World Series.Descalso hit just .205 with a .607 OPS in 101 games and 185 at-bats last year. But this season, he has made 55 starts and has 206 at-bats in 85 games and is hitting .272 with an .820 OPS. With runners in scoring position this season, Descalso is hitting .415 (22-for-53) with 32 RBI.Descalso said he spent time in the offseason studying the swings of several players, including Josh Donaldson, the reigning Most Valuable Player in the American League, Mookie Betts and former Cardinals teammate Matt Carpenter, and talking with former Cardinals teammate Jon Jay, now a member of the Padres.I just found a swing that I can repeat and that I feel confident in, said Descalso, whose swing is more rhythmic because he begins it after some motion with his hands that he lacked last year. It has just allowed me to simplify my at-bats and just worry about getting good pitches to hit and putting good swings on it instead of worrying about whats wrong with my swing and my timing. Its just put me in a simpler mind set and simpler approach.Jon Gray, who is 9-8 with a 4.69 ERA, will start for the Rockies. He lost his last start on Sept. 10 in San Diego, giving up six runs (five earned) in four innings.Weiss said after that outing, Gray and pitching coach Steve Foster and bullpen coach Darren Holmes worked on some minor mechanical things. http://www.jetsrookiestore.com/Jets-Morris-Claiborne-Jersey/. Ots more about timing issues over the rubber, Weiss said. Thats one of the things Jon has to really be in tune with. That affects his slider. When he doesnt have his slider, it makes it tough for him.His sliders a wipeout pitch, but its been inconsistent at times this year. When he has that pitch, everything else kind of falls in place for him and he can be dominant. So, hopefully, we got that rectified.Gray is 1-2 with a 3.75 ERA in four starts against the Padres this year, including a June outing at Coors Field where he allowed three runs (one earned) in seven innings. Gray is 6-2 with a 4.82 ERA in 13 starts at Coors Field this season.Edwin Jackson will start for the Padres. Hes 4-5 with a 5.32 ERA in 18 games, including 10 starts.Two starts ago, the well-traveled Jackson, 33, made a mechanical adjustment to the end of his delivery. He then worked seven scoreless innings against Boston on Sept. 5, striking out 11, the most by a Padres pitcher this season, and allowing four hits and two walks while getting the victory in San Diegos 2-1 win.On Sept. 11, Jackson allowed two runs in six innings against the Rockies but wasnt involved in the decision as the Padres lost 3-2 in 10 innings.Padres first baseman Wil Myers hit his 25th homer on Friday, a two-run shot in the first inning. Myers joined Mike Trout as the only major leaguers with at least 25 doubles, 25 homers and 25 stolen bases this year. Myers, who has 26 doubles and 25 stolen bases, is the first Padres first baseman to reach those three milestones.Its something thats definitely pretty cool, Myers said. I definitely didnt have that goal in mind when I started the season. But as I learned more about stealing bases, it kind of became one.Myers also became the third first baseman in major league history to have 25 or more doubles, homers and stolen bases in a season. Jeff Bagwell and Joe Carter are the others.

Things to watch in the ACC in Week 3:GAME OF THE WEEK: No. Taijuan Walker Jersey . 2 Florida State at No. 10 Louisville, in the first of three marquee matchups in the most top-heavy division in college football -- the Atlantic Division also has No. 5 Clemson, which plays both schools. Its the 12th top-10 matchup in ACC history and the first since Miami-Florida State in 2013. The Seminoles -- who have outscored their opponents 84-12 during their last six quarters -- will have to stop QB Lamar Jackson, who leads the conference in six individual stat categories and in two blowouts has thrown for six touchdowns and rushed for six more. Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher cautions that you cant get enamored with Lamar and let those (other) guys beat you.BEST MATCHUP: Pittsburgh rushing offense vs. Oklahoma State rushing defense. RB James Conner has rushed for an average of 84 yards with two touchdowns during his inspirational return from cancer. Hell try to add to that total against the Cowboys, who rank 11th nationally against the run and are still fuming from a questionable last-second loss to Central Michigan that cost them a spot in the AP Top 25.INSIDE THE NUMBERS: Seven quarterbacks have made their starting debuts for their schools already this season, a total that includes transfers at Virginia (Kurt Benkert), Boston College (Patrick Towles) and N.C. State (Ryan Finley). Through two games, all seven rank in the top 10 in the conference in passing, with Florida State freshman Deondre Francois leading the way with an average of 340.5 yards.LONG SHOT: No. 25 Miami could be walking into trouble when they visit Boone, North Carolina, to face an Appalachian State program in its third year in the Bowl Subdivision. Its by far the biggest game at the FBS level for the Mountaineers, who took No. 15 Tennessee to overtime two weeks ago. And of course nobody has forgotten Appalachian States upset of Michigan in 2007 during its run of three straight FCS titles.IMPACT PLAYER: DL Duke Ejiofor has been a disruptive force up front during Wake Forests surprising 2-0 start. Hes forced two fumbles, including one that swung the momentum in a 24-14 win over Duke, and ranks second in the ACC with 3+ sacks. The Demon Deacons figure to turn him loose this week against Delaware of the FCS.---Compiled by AP Sports Writer Joedy McCreary in Raleigh, North Carolina.---OnlineAP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Jake Lamb Jersey . Aaron Harrison scored a 22 points for Kentucky (6-1), which has won four in a row following a Nov. 12 loss to current No. 1 Michigan State. Julius Randle overcame a scoreless first half and added his sixth double-double in as many games with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Jarrod Dyson Jersey . 4 Villanova with a 96-68 drubbing on Monday. Wragge hit 9-of-14 from behind the arc, matching Kyle Korvers school record for 3-pointers in a game set in 2003, as Creighton (16-3, 6-1 Big East broke a conference record with 21 treys in the rout. http://www.diamondbacksteamshop.com/Diamondbacks-Luis-Gonzalez-Kids-Jersey/ . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. MARINA BAY, Singapore -- Romain Grosjean has moved five places back on the Singapore Grand Prix grid after taking a penalty for a gearbox change.Grosjean crashed into the wall at Turn 10 during Q2 in Singapore, damaging the rear of the car.

LOS ANGELES -- Two Pacific Division teams struggling to find consistency will meet at Staples Center on Saturday when the Calgary Flames visit the Los Angeles Kings. http://www.steelersrookiestore.com/Steelers-Joshua-Dobbs-Jersey/ . Both posted similar wins on Thursday -- a 3-2 victory over a Stanley Cup finalist that snapped a losing streak.The Flames road win over the San Jose Sharks is a hopeful sign that their poor defensive play is beginning to turn a corner. Through 12 games, Calgary (5-6-1) has surrendered 42 goals, ranking next-to-last in the league in goals against.The defensive play was the primary reason the Flames missed the 2016 post season and, with the acquisition of goaltenders Brian Elliott and Chad Johnson, it was thought that the tandem would provide stability in net to anchor the defense. That hope has yet to become a reality, though Johnsons 26 save performance against San Jose broke a two-game losing streak and improved the teams road record to 3-2-1.The defensive effort against the Sharks marked a vast improvement over what has been the norm on most nights.From my standpoint, Im not saying it was an easy game but we limited their Grade A scoring chances and took away the middle of the ice, said Johnson.Coach Glen Gulutzan preached patience for his new system and as the season lengthens, he feels the performance at the defensive end of the ice will continue to improve.Were starting to put ourselves in our position to get two points every night, said Gulutzan. Weve changed a lot of things in our style of play but our players are starting to believe.Los Angeles (5-6-0) has been a tough opponent for the Flames, sweeping last seasons four game season series, and Calgarys last victory at Staples Center came on January 19, 2015.The Kings slow start is primarily due to issues at the opposite end of the ice. Their 3-2 overtime victory over the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins snapped a three-game losing streak in which they failed to score a goal.Trevor Lewis second-period goal broke a goalless stretch of 205:25 in losses to St. Louis, Chicago and Anaheim.Los Angeles scored 23 goals in 11 games, placing them 11th in offense in the Western Conference. The Kings have not won a game in regulation time and have not scored more than three goals through regulation in any contest. Only left winger Tanner Pearson scored more than two goals, and its surprising to see defenseman Alec Martinez as its leading scorer (two goals, seven assists, nine points) with a lineup that includes Anze Kopitar, Tyler Toffoli and Drew Doughty.Thought of as a Stanley Cup contender, overall team health raises questions about the quality of depth needed to qualify for the post-season in the highly competitive Western Conference. Kings coach Darryl Sutter must continue to manage around significant injuries for the next few weeks after stating that wingers Marian Gaborik, Andy Andreoff and defenseman Brayden McNabb are at least a month away from returning to action while Jonathan Quick is month-to-month with a groin injury.The victory over the Penguins could re-instill confidence throughout the experienced Los Angeles roster after the goalless streak reached a level not seen since the 1968-69 season.We needed to end that skid. I thought that was a good game for us against a really good team coming here, said defenseman Matt Greene. We needed the points to keep pace in this division. Its a big win. Obviously, you want to get this in regulation, but we will take the points however we get them. http://www.steelersrookiestore.com/Steelers-Roosevelt-Nix-Jersey/ . The 26-year-old Ireland striker, who has four goals this season, has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with his new club. http://www.steelersrookiestore.com/Steelers-Robert-Golden-Jersey/ . From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. http://www.steelersrookiestore.com/Steelers-Martavis-Bryant-Jersey/ . -- Josh Sterk scored once and set up two more as the Oshawa Generals edged the visiting Belleville Bulls 3-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. Before Carrie Underwood was an American Idol winner or country-singing megastar, she was just a girl who loved playing softball and basketball in Checotah, Oklahoma. Now known the world over, Underwood returned to her hometown recently to talk to three high school students about their lives and what sports mean to them.Underwood hung out with the trio and participated in their favorite sports while sharing the lessons sports taught her over the years. Its pretty adorable, and anyone who was a sports-loving teen will definitely be able to rellate. http://www.steelersrookiestore.com/Hoodie/. It was filmed for her CALIA by Carrie Underwood athleisure line. Underwood and the Dicks Sporting Goods Foundation pledged $500,000 for grants funding girls sports across the country while in Checotah.

TORONTO - Geroy Simons Saskatchewan Roughriders debut is on hold for another week. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Blidi-Wreh-Wilson-Jersey/ . Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin said Wednesday the veteran slotback wont play in the clubs game Thursday night against the Toronto Argonauts. The Roughriders acquired Simon in an off-season trade with the B.C. Lions but he has yet to play for his new team due to a lower-body injury. The 37-year-old Simon is the CFLs all-time receiving yards leader (15,787) and needs 29 catches to break Ben Cahoons league record of 1,017. Thursdays game will be a homecoming for Roughriders defensive end Ricky Foley, a native of Courtice, Ont., who helped Toronto win the Grey Cup last year. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/T-Shirts/ . Duchene scored two goals and had an assist, helping the Colorado Avalanche beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 on Friday night to match the best 10-game start in team history. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Brooks-Reed-Jersey/ . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Matt-Schaub-Jersey/ . -- Teemu Selanne scored the first goal of his 22nd NHL season, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are trying out three new punters this season. Coach Tim Burke says all three have strong enough legs to be good punters in the CFL. Whether they can put it together in a game situation is another matter. Mike Renaud is entering his fifth season as thee teams punter. http://www.falconsrookiestore.com/Falcons-Matt-Bryant-Jersey/. Its hard to say whether the Bombers are really shopping or just trying to push Renaud to perform a little better. But the trio trying out is happy to get a shot and all three will move on from rookie camp to the main camp when it starts Sunday.
