Jamaal Williams Youth Jersey . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. Jamaal Williams Womens Jersey . The home side created most of the chances but struggled to break down Braunschweigs resilient defence, resulting in the Bundesligas 1,000th scoreless draw. . The Canadian squad, skipped by Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg, got on the board first with two in the second end, and followed that with two more apiece in the fourth and sixth ends.MONTREAL -- The Amway Canadian Championship will come down to a one-game final two weeks from now in Vancouver after the Whitecaps secured a scoreless draw in Montreal against the Impact in the opening leg. Both teams emphasized the positives after Wednesday nights draw at Saputo Stadium. The Whitecaps are happy to have home-field advantage in the deciding game at B.C. Place on May 29, though Montreal can secure a crucial tie-breaker with an away goal in the two-game, total-goals final. "I guess both teams will be aware that they wont want to take an away goal if we go out there and lead 1-0," Impact captain Patrice Bernier said. "Im thinking its going to be a more open game. Its going to be a final so at the end its going to be the last game. Theres no third game thats going to be played. Its either going to go into overtime or its going to be solved in 90 minutes." Whitecaps goalkeeper Brad Knighton posted the clean sheet and Vancouvers Alain Rochat had two solid scoring chances in the first half, including a header off a corner kick in the 32nd minute that was stopped on the goal-line by Montreal midfielder Justin Mapp. "Were happy with the result tonight," Rochat said. Vancouver defender Andy OBrien acknowledged that the Whitecaps will have to move away from the concentrated defensive approach the team took in the opening leg. "I think maybe in the second leg well have to open up a little bit but weve got plenty of time to prepare for that," OBrien said. Impact defender Jeb Brovsky was bloodied about the face in the 88th minute when he collided with Vancouvers Jordan Harvey as both went up for a ball kicked deep into the box by Montreal defender Matteo Ferrari. Brovsky, who returned to finish the game, went to the hospital after the game to check for a broken nose and possible facial fractures. "Thats Jeb. Hes a warrior," Impact coach Marco Schallibaum said. "His nose was over here (on the side of his face). You have to respect a player like that because he gives it his all." The Whitecaps are appeearing in their third championship series since the tournament format changed in 2011 from a round robin to two playoff rounds. Montravius Adams Packers Jersey. Vancouver lost the first two ACC finals to Toronto FC, which won four straight Voyageurs Cup titles from 2009-12. "I thought we did a good job of shutting them down," Whitecaps coach Martin Rennie said. "We had a couple of chances ourselves and it would have been nice to have stolen one of those, but I think weve given ourselves a good chance going into the second leg." Impact striker Marco Di Vaio lifted his arms to appeal, though to no avail, for a handball in the 74th minute when his shot from inside the box off a pass from Brovsky was blocked. Montreal goalkeeper Evan Bush jumped to stop Erik Hurtados shot in injury time at the end of the second half. Di Vaio had a scoring chance 19 minutes in when he curled around to the front to fire a shot from 25 yards out. Whitecaps goalkeeper Brad Knighton made the stop but had to scramble to recover his rebound. Montreal captain Patrice Bernier put a shot just wide of the right post moments later in the 21st minute. Vancouver threatened in the 32nd minute when Rochats shot was stopped by Bush. Rochat had a second straight opportunity to go for goal on the ensuing corner kick but Mapp blocked his header just inside the right post. Montreal coach Marco Schallibaum exchanged heated words with Whitecaps assistant coach Paul Ritchie on the sidelines after the Impact picked up its third yellow card in a span of seven minutes when Di Vaio was cautioned in the 33rd minute for his tackle on Matt Watson. Defender Hassoun Camara was shown Montreals first yellow card for fouling Vancouver captain Nigel Reo-Coker on a hard tackle 26 minutes in. The Impacts Collen Warner was also cautioned in the 31st minute. "There could have been three, four, five or six cautions the other way," Schallibaum said. OBrien picked up a yellow card in the 49th minute. Afternoon rain and a forecast of evening showers that did not materialize kept the crowd to 12,016.

"Trying to breathe," he said with a grin. Bernier stopped 42 of 43 shots on Monday night, including all 22 in a hectic middle frame, his heroic performance propelling the Leafs toward an undue point in their final game before the Christmas break. NEW YORK -- The minute he got ejected, Mike Napoli screamed and pointed right in the face of plate umpire Lance Barrett.Cleveland manager Terry Francona arrived a moment or two after that -- already too late to keep his cleanup hitter in the game -- and shook his head slightly before shuffling back to the dugout.No doubt, it was a frustrating week for the first-place Indians.Masahiro Tanaka rebounded from two rocky outings, Didi Gregorius homered on his bobblehead day and the New York Yankees held off Cleveland 3-2 Sunday after announcing that Alex Rodriguez will soon play his final game in pinstripes.Its been a difficult week, but I think everybodys ready to move on, Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis said.Cleveland, which remained two games ahead of Detroit, has dropped five of seven.Carlos Carrasco (7-6) also bounced back from a poor start and struck out nine in seven solid innings for the Indians, who tried to rally late but were unable to take advantage of three New York errors.I thought he was pretty good, Francona said. It seemed like every pitch he really paid for. It was never a single, it was a homer, double or triple. All three hurt us.The right-hander has lost three consecutive starts for the first time since dropping five straight in July 2011.I thought he pitched more than good enough to win the game. This one was on the offense, Kipnis said.Mark Teixeira, two days since disclosing his own plans to retire at the end of the season, hit an RBI double for the Yankees and dove toward first base to complete a crucial play on defense.Dellin Betances got four outs for his second save as New York took two of three from the AL Central leaders and won the season series 5-2.An irate Napoli was quickly tossed when he protested a called third strike in the eighth. The slugger, who jawed extensively with Barrett after strike two, got right into the umpires face and might have nicked him with the bill of his helmet.Hit hard by the Mets in a Subway Series loss last week, Tanaka (8-4) was lifted with a 3-0 lead following Rajai Davis leadoff double in the seventh.We swung at a lot of bad pitches, Davis said. We were maybe a little bit overaggressive.Davis scored when Adam Warren gave up an RBI single to No. 9 batter Roberto Perez, his second hit of the dayy after entering 2 for 40 (. Cheap Maple Leafs Jerseys. 050) this season.With two on, the 36-year-old Teixeira went to his knees for a sliding stop of Francisco Lindors two-out grounder behind first base. Teixeira gathered himself and barely beat Lindor to the bag with his outstretched mitt as both players dove headfirst.The effort drew cheers from a crowd of 39,720 that also gave Tanaka a warm ovation as he walked off the mound.Cleveland scored an unearned run on a wild pitch in the eighth and nearly got something going in the ninth.Chris Gimenez short-hopped the left-field fence with a leadoff drive but was held to a single by Brett Gardner. Second baseman Starlin Castro then started a difficult double play on Carlos Santanas sharp grounder, and Betances struck out Kipnis to end it.We just didnt get that big hit, Davis said.Gardner hit a leadoff triple in the first and scored on Jacoby Ellsburys sacrifice fly.Tanaka struck out eight and walked none.I thought on a day when he especially wasnt overpowering, his secondary pitches were really effective. Every time we tried to pull him, we played into his hand, Francona said. He knows how to pitch.About 2 hours before the game, Rodriguez and the rebuilding Yankees (56-55) announced the slumping slugger will play Friday night against Tampa Bay at Yankee Stadium and then be released. After that, he plans to become a special adviser and instructor with the organization next year.This is a tough day. I love this game and I love this team, the 41-year-old Rodriguez said, often choking up. And today Im saying goodbye to both.YER OUTTA HERENapoli, who leads the team with 28 homers and 79 RBI, was ejected for the sixth time in his career.STREAKINGJose Ramirez had two hits and scored once, extending his hitting streak to a career-high 12 games. He is batting .426 during the streak.UP NEXTFollowing an off day, Cleveland opens a two-game interleague series at NL East-leading Washington. Good test right there, Kipnis said.

We were down by a goal three times and were able to come back and win.Saturdays game features the latest matchup of the Hayes brothers, and New Yorks Kevin and Bostons Jimmy both come into the game with a story.Kevin, who dedicated his offseason to getting into real hockey shape, recorded a goal and two assists Thursday night and seven points in the last three games. He is up to four goals and 10 points and is a plus-9 for the first 11 games.Jimmy, on the other hand, has gone 26 straight games dating back to his last NHL point Feb. 24. He is a minus-8 this season, minus-12 since his last point. But Thursday night, he scored in the 10th round of the shootout to give the Bruins a win over the Lightning.Its sure nice to be able to contribute the way you want to, Jimmy Hayes said. Its been up and down here. Ive just got to continue to build off this and find a way to find the back of the net.Vigneault didnt like the matchup and sat the line of Chris Kreider, Mika Zibanejad and Jimmy Vesey in the second period Thursday. They returned in the third and helped the Rangers put the game away.New York scored at least five goals in six of its eight wins.Rask, who was hurt when the teams met in New York, owns a brilliant 1.48 goals against average and a .951 save percentage in his six games this season -- the Bruins 0-4 without him in goal. He comes in 9-5-3 with a 2.10 goals against average and a .930 save percentage in the regular season against the Rangers.Counterpart Henrik Lundqvist is 24-12-2 with 1.95/.935 numbers against the Bruins. Dalvin Tomlinson Youth Jersey .

Anton Devcich holed out to deep midwicket for a 13-ball 7 and Colin Munro handed a return catch to Veerasammy Permaul, who caught the ball after juggling twice. Amla had trudged along to 42 by then and crossed the 50-run mark in the 14th over but was bowled in the 18th over when he missed a slog sweep against Adam Zampa. Three sixes from Dwayne Bravo and two fours from Denesh Ramdin helped them collect 39 runs in the last three overs to cross 150.Bravo opened with Devcich and it reaped benefits when the left-arm spinner removed Dwayne Smith for a duck with his third ball. Amazon Warriors were scoring at less than a run a ball and their Powerplay progress was dented further when Devcich accounted for Chris Lynn in the fifth over. Martin Guptill played a patient innings, but a lack of substantial partnerships added more pressure as the end overs approached.Amazon Warriors needed 64 runs from five overs and sixes from Guptill, Christopher Barnwell and Rayad Emrit brought it to 30 from 12 balls. Even though Guptill fell for a 40-ball 50 on the first ball of the 19th over, two fours and a six from Permaul, in the same over, gave Amazon Warriors a chance in the final over but Kevon Cooper conceded only six runs to register Knight Riders second win.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. Vince Biegel Youth Jersey . -- Chicago Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery accepted responsibility for his four-game suspension for violating the NFLs policy against performance-enhancing drugs and acknowledged letting down the team on Wednesday.He said the Bears (3-10) likely would have won a few more games had he been playing. They dropped three of four in his absence and will host Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (7-6) on Sunday.Asked if he let down the team, Jeffery responded, Most definitely.With an expiring contract, Jeffery has three games left to regain the trust of the team and the front office. That effort kicked into gear with his return to practice on Wednesday.I mean, just got to know what you put in your body, Jeffery said. I aint going to say it, but Im a part of the team. I want to say that I feel like if I was playing, some of those games we would have had a different outcome. We probably would have won.The team leader with 630 yards receiving, Jeffery is coming back on the heels of a 20-17 loss at Detroit that knocked Chicago out of playoff contention.He will be suiting up for the first time since a blowout loss at Tampa Bay on Nov. 13.The suspension was announced the following day, with the former Pro Bowl receiver posting on social media that he took a supplement for inflammation containing a substance banned by the NFL.Jeffery would not say Wednesday what he took or who recommended it.Like I said, Im going to own up to it and I accept the punishment, he said. At the end of the day, its my name on it, so Im moving forward with it. So it is what it is. I learned from it. Thats all I can say.Jeffery said the suspension surprised him and he attempted to appeal it. But ultimately, he felt there was nothing I can do about it.The suspension raised more questions about a receiver who was limited to nine games last season because of injuries.The inability to stay on the field just adds to the uncertainty surrounding Jeffery, who is playing for the $14.6 million franchise tag after he and the Bears were unable to agree to a long-term contract.Its not clear how the suspension will impact his negotiations in free agency -- with Chicago or other teams. If he is concerned about his value on the market, Jeffery would not say.Theres nothing I can do about it, he said. All I can do is try to work hard. Hopefully whatever happens at the end of this season is something good.Does he have anything to prove to Bears general manager Ryan Pace?I dont think Ive got nothing to prove to no one, he said. I just go out there and do my job and play football and play hard.Jeffery also insisted he is not concerned that the suspension will tarnish his reputation.At the end of the day people are going to say what theyre going to say about you regardless, he said. So whatever you guys want to say about me, Ill take it all in stride.Jeffery will have some catching up to do with quarterback Matt Barkley, who has started the past three games with Jay Cutler and Brian Hoyer injured.Barkley completed two passes to Jeffery after Hoyer broke his left arm in the loss at Green Bay on Oct. 20. But they have little experience playing together.Hes running routes Ive thrown before, so hes not a completely foreign route-runner to me, Barkley said.Its just some of the little things, getting used to putting it high on deep balls to where he can go up and get some of those deep balls or just how he does get in and out of some breaks on certain routes. Its not all that foreign if he sticks to his depths and what Im used to. We should be good to go.Jeffery said being away from the team was not easy. He said he focused on training, avoided social media and tried not to watch too much TV.I was excited to get back out there with my guys. I missed playing football, he said.---For more NFL coverage: and Montravius Adams Youth Jersey . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence.

Howard said. I hadnt heard from Lewis, and I thought Id lost him too, and then he called and said, Theres a horse I want you to take a look at tomorrow, and if you like him, take him.

Then they counter-attacked, and a right cross threaded past five Kiwis before Florian Fuchs dived to guide it in with 1 second left.Unbelievable, Furste said.Crazy, Fuchs added.Not for the first time in Rio de Janeiro, Germany escaped defeat and stayed in the hunt for a third straight Olympic gold medal.In the pool stage, in which the Germans finished unbeaten, they hurt India and Argentina with last-gasp goals, too.We never give up, Furste said. As long as there are seconds on the clock we will keep playing.India was beaten 2-1 with 3 seconds left, when Martin Haners low, powerful pass through the center of the defense was deflected in by Christopher Ruhr.Argentina was drawn 4-4 with 8 seconds to go, when Mathias Muller fired in a penalty corner.Rather than worry about the close shaves, the Germans think the results fuel their belief that they will prevail.We have to take the effort and all the emotions we had in this game back into the semifinal (against Argentina on Tuesday), Fuchs said. Such a win pumps up the team a lot, and this can help winning the semifinal as well.New Zealand captain Simon Child said his side was devastated at missing out on their first medal rounds in 40 years.The Germans showed why theyre the two-time Olympic champs, Child said. They make every second count. Davis Webb Giants Jersey . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. Wayne Gallman Womens Jersey . The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game. . -- Ken Appleby made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 2-0 win over the Belleville Bulls on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League action. SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid was the first teammate of quarterback Colin Kaepernicks to join him in not standing for the national anthem as part of a protest of racial inequality and oppression in the country. But he might not be the last.On Friday afternoon, Reid said he plans to continue to kneel alongside Kaepernick when the 49ers open the season with the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football.And while Reid and linebacker NaVorro Bowman indicated theres no momentum for a team-wide action, such as the pregame demonstration the Seattle Seahawks have planned for Sunday, Reid did leave the door open for the possibility that other teammates could join him and Kaepernick.There have been guys that have talked about it, Reid said. I cant speak for what anybody is going to do and their plans for the future. I guess well just have to wait and see.As of Friday afternoon, no other player has publicly declared the intention to join Kaepernick and Reid, but Reid didnt announce his plan to join Kaepernick before last weeks preseason finale against San Diego, either.Bowman said Friday he will continue to stand for the national anthem and that there hasnt been a discussion of planning something for the entire team to do.I plan on doing the same thing Ive been doing and just trying to focus on football and get the win, Bowman said. No one has talked about [a team-wide protest]. I feel like thats a personal issue, and guys have done a great job of keeping it personal, and no one says anything if a guy did decide to take a knee.In the week-plus since Reid and Kaepernick kneeled in San Diego, others in the sports world have joined. Denver linebacker Brandon Marshall did the same before the Denver Broncos game against Carolina on Thursday night.A credit union that serves military families released Marshall as one of its ambassadors after he knelt before Thursdays game.Although we have enjoyed Brandon Marshall as our spokesperson over the past five months, Air Academy Federal Credit Union (AAFCU) has ended our partnership, president and CEO Glenn Strebe said in a statement. AAFCU is a membership-based organization who has proudly served the military community for over 60 years. While we respect Brandons right of expression, his actions are not a representation of our organization and membership. We wish Brandon well on his future endeavorss. Evan Engram Womens Jersey. Reid, who counts Under Armour as his lone endorsement, said he hasnt heard any concerns from the athletic apparel company, but he said he understood the potential consequences when he decided to take a knee in the first place.When I decided to do this, it came with the understanding that thats the risk you take, Reid said. Its business. I studied business in college, and people dont want to be associated with bad press. and thats understandable. Thats cool with me, but I feel like Im doing something bigger than money.If I lose an Under Armour endorsement ... I wouldnt be worried about it, because to me, in my heart, Im doing something thats for the benefit of a lot of people.Other athletes who have joined in kneeling during the anthem include Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane and womens soccer star Megan Rapinoe. Reid also got in touch with former Marine Staff Sgt. Joey Jones -- he lost both legs in Afghanistan -- who offered his help to Reid and Kaepernicks cause.Reid said a lot of players have reached out to offer support over the past week, but that many of them arent sure how they want to go about showing that support.A lot of guys are being supportive -- they want to be involved, Reid said. A lot of guys have expressed that they dont know if theyre comfortable with kneeling, but they do support the cause so theyre looking for ways to get involved, and I applaud them for that.On Thursday, 49ers chief executive officer Jed York announced that the 49ers charitable foundation will be donating $1 million to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation and the San Francisco Foundation to help improve racial and economic inequality, causes that are at the center of Kaepernick and Reids protest.Thats in addition to the $1 million plus proceeds from his jersey sales that Kaepernick already has declared he will donate. Reid said he was excited to see the organization offer such support.Any time you do something, a protest, you know theres going to be backlash, Reid said. You know you cant satisfy [everyone]. But for our organization to step up, it feels like were supported by the NFL. Thats huge. It gives substance to what were doing. Our owners believe in what were doing. It kind of gives me encouragement to move forward. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
