The designation was released Monday after the deadline passed for NFL teams to use franchise or transition tags on players becoming free agents. NAPA, Calif. -- Raiders tight end Clive Walford had the type of offseason that makes coaches cringe and smile.Walford suffered a knee injury while riding an ATV, and while the accident wasnt serious, it was enough to keep the 2015 third-round draft pick out of all of Oaklands OTAs and minicamps.On the other hand, Walford healed up enough to spend time with quarterback Derek Carr for private workouts, making up for the lost time and giving Walford a head start going into training camp.Walford showed how critical that was to his development when he made a one-handed catch on a deep throw from Carr during individual drills Wednesday.Youll see him every day we come out to warm up, as soon as he comes out he comes straight to me and wants to catch from me, Carr said. Thats the kind of things that we need and thats how he is.Walford is trying to make it through the preseason without a setback after missing large chunks of training camp during his rookie season because of hamstring and knee injuries.The injuries prevented Walford from practicing and were a major factor in his slow start. A holder of numerous tight end records at the University of Miami, Walford caught only three passes in the Raiders first five games a year ago and finished with 28 receptions for 329 yards and three touchdowns.Part of that was due to Oaklands revolving door at tight end in 2015. Mychal Rivera caught 32 passes as the primary receiving tight end while Lee Smith was used primarily as an extra blocker.Although its possible the Raiders might still keep three tight ends for the upcoming season, its equally likely theyll go with two.Walford figures to be atop the depth chart no matter how many tight ends Oakland keeps. He is a better blocker than Rivera, a better receiver than Smith and has the size ((6-foot-4, 250 pounds) to be a match-up problem against opposing linebackers and safeties. Colton Schmidt Jersey. I just continue to do what Ive been doing, working hard ever since I was at Miami, Walford said. If you work hard itll start to show. I guess thats what its doing.The Raiders werent happy when news broke of Walfords injury while riding the ATV. Walford said he hit an unexpected bump on the trail and tumbled off.Believe it or not, when the accident first happened I didnt realize how serious it was until I got to the hospital, Walford said. I thought maybe I just needed some stitches. They told me I was going to be out for a while, so I had to inform the team.Although he was unable to take part in on-field workouts while recovering, Walford stayed busy in the meeting rooms and weight room. Catching passes from Carr away from practices also helped make up for the lost time.The chemistry is still there, Walford said. I just have to get back into football shape.Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said Walfords desire to work out with Carr on the side was encouraging.When you take the time to get on the same page with your quarterback, if youre somebody thats going to catch the ball and be involved in the offense, thats a positive thing, Del Rio said. Thats a great sign for our football team. We see him as a real key player in our offense. Glad to have him back doing his thing.Game notes Undrafted defensive lineman Greg Townsend Jr. returned to practice. ...

Now that the Big 12 has decided to stay at 10 schools, its time for the conference to figure out whether to split up into football divisions and determine who will play in the Big 12 championship game that returns next season. Bobby Hull Jersey .We werent able to move forward in a direction until we knew about the composition of the conference going forward, Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione said. We are looking at several options.If the league opts to return to divisions, the big question then becomes how to split into groups of five.As a 12-team league until 2010, the Big 12 had North and South divisions. That is possible again, or maybe a roughly East-West split? There are four Texas schools, two each in Kansas and Oklahoma and one each in Iowa and West Virginia.Its a hard league to play in because you play everybody, TCU coach Gary Patterson said. Good teams are good teams. ... Itll be interesting to see how they set it up and how they do it.The league is keeping the round-robin schedule proudly touted since dropping to 10 teams so, divisions or not, every team will still play each other every year. Thats different from the larger conferences; Nebraska left the Big 12 for a 14-team Big Ten after the 2010 season and last weekend played Indiana in a conference game for the first time.Traditional rivalry games like Texas-Oklahoma at the State Fair of Texas, Kansas-Kansas State and Baylor-TCU will continue an annual basis. There is just now the possibility of a championship game rematch.Castiglione said league ADs will even consider the possibility of divisions that would change every so many years based on some sort of metric, perhaps standings from previous seasons.Or without divisions, the league could match its top two overall finishers for the title game.Theres certainly risk and reward with that choice, but its an option, Castiglione said.With divisions in the smallest Power Five conference , teams from the other division could be scheduled to play in the first portion of conference play, providing a potential gap of a month or so between what will always be a rematch in the title game.If taking the top two teams overall, there could be back-to-back games against the same teams. Last year, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State were the top two teams after the Sooners won their annual Bedlam matchup by 35 points to end their regular seasons.That would have also been a possibility this year, when ninth-ranked Baylor, 12th-ranked West Virginia and No. 16 Oklahoma are all still without a conference loss. The Bears and Mountaineers play on the final Saturday of the regular season.NO PERFECT SPLITS OR NAMESSplitting and naming divisions is always a challenge open to debate.Remember the Legends and Leaders divisions for the Big Ten? It switched to East and West in 2014 when Maryland and Rutgers joined that league.The ACC has Atlantic and Coastal divisions, though most of its 14 football teams are inland. When Missouri left the Big 12 for the 14-team SEC, the Tigers ended up in the East Division though they are one of only three SEC schools whose campus is West of the Mississippi River. The Pac-12 has North and South divisions, though the split is arguably more East-West.DIVIDED BIG 12 LOOKSo how would be Big 12 look this season if already split up in divisions? Here are some possibilities:Current Big 12 standings , conference records only: Baylor (3-0), Oklahoma (3-0), West Virginia (2-0) Oklahoma State (2-1), TCU (2-1), Kansas State (1-2), Texas (1-2), Texas Tech (1-2), Kansas (0-3), Iowa State (0-4).- If North-South:North: West Virginia (2-0), Oklahoma State (2-1), Kansas State (1-2), Kansas (0-3), Iowa State (0-4).South: Baylor (3-0), Oklahoma (3-0), TCU (2-1), Texas (1-2), Texas Tech (1-2).- If East-West:East: Baylor (3-0), West Virginia (2-0), Oklahoma State (2-1), Kansas (0-3), Iowa State (0-4).West: Oklahoma (3-0), TCU (2-1), Texas Tech (1-2), Kansas State (1-2), Texas (1-2).A FULL SEASON DIVIDEDHad the Big 12 been split into divisions last season, things would have looked different, though Oklahoma and Oklahoma State would have been division champs in either scenario.Final 2015 standings (conference records only): Oklahoma (8-1), Oklahoma State (7-2), TCU (7-2), Baylor (6-3), West Virginia (4-5), Texas Tech (4-5), Texas (4-5), Kansas State (3-6), Iowa State (2-7), Kansas (0-9).- If North-South:North: Oklahoma State (7-2), West Virginia (4-5), Kansas State (3-6), Iowa State (2-7), Kansas (0-9).South: Oklahoma (8-1), TCU (7-2), Baylor (6-3), Texas Tech (4-5), Texas (4-5).- If East-West:East: Oklahoma State (7-2), TCU (7-2), West Virginia (4-5), Texas Tech (4-5), Texas (4-5). ((asterisk)Oklahoma State beat TCU head-to-head).West: Oklahoma (8-1), Baylor (6-3), Kansas State (3-6), Iowa State (2-7), Kansas (0-9).PAST DIVISIONSThe Big 12 started play in 1996 with North and South divisions. Six teams from the old Big Eight Conference were in the North, and that former leagues other teams -- Oklahoma and Oklahoma State -- were in the South with four Texas schools from the old Southwest Conference.After the North and South alternated wins in the first eight Big 12 championship games, the South won the last seven (Oklahoma five, Texas two).---OnlineAP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Thomas Steen Jersey .

TROON, Scotland -- The Latest on the final round of the British Open (all times local):---6:30 p.m.After an epic duel at the British Open, Henrik Stenson has claimed his first major title.Stenson shot an 8-under 63 on Sunday to beat Phil Mickelson by three strokes, becoming the first man from Sweden to win one of golfs biggest events.Mickelson, seeking his sixth major title at age 46, did all he could to capture the claret jug. But Stenson gained the upper hand by rolling in a 50-foot birdie putt from off the green at No. 15 to take a two-shot lead -- the first time all day the final group had been separated by more than one stroke.In a fitting touch after two days of foul weather, the sun broke through just as the final group was teeing off at No. 1. This head-to-head matchup will surely be remembered alongside the Duel in the Sun at Turnberry between Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus in 1977.Stenson finished at 20-under 264 overall, breaking both the Open scoring record of 267 set by Greg Norman at Royal St. Georges in 1993 and the major championship mark of 265 by David Toms at the 2001 PGA Championship.Mickelson shot 65 for a 267 total.---6:20 p.m.Henrik Stenson is closing in on his first major title.The 40-year-old Swede has a two-shot lead over Phil Mickelson with one hole to play in regulation at the British Open.The two have been locked in an epic duel all afternoon, but Stenson delivered a crushing blow to Mickelsons chances of capturing a sixth major championship by making a 50-foot birdie putt from off the green at the 15th.Stenson is at 19-under for the tournament and poised to break the Open scoring record.

They are each at 5 under for the day.How close have these two been? Over the last two days, theyve never been more than two shots apart.---5:10 p.m.With his family all around, cancer survivor Matthew Southgate was in tears as he approached the 18th green at Royal Troon. A traumatic 12 months for the Englishman was ending on a high.Southgate was about to complete a final round of 2-under 69 to secure a place in the top 15 of the British Open, a year to the week that he underwent surgery after being diagnosed with testicular cancer.The 27-year-old Southgate says words cannot describe how that felt walking down that last hole -- 69 is a hell of a score for me on a day which meant so much.Southgate had a 1-under 283 total and will earn an exemption into next years British Open at Birkdale. He says every day is a fight for me and when I walk to that first tee, it is like a boxer getting in the ring. I know Im going to get hit but I am going to hit just as hard back.---4:35 p.m.Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson are locked in a memorable duel at Royal Troon.In what has turned into a two-man match for the claret jug, they are going at it shot for shot, taking aim at a British Open course that is suddenly ripe for the taking. The wind has died down, and the sun even broke through a clouds a few times Sunday.As they make the turn toward the tougher inward nine, Stenson and Mickelson are both at 4-under 32 for the round, leaving Stenson with the one-stroke lead he had coming into the day. Together, they have combined for seven birdies, one eagle and just one bogey. The margin has never been more than one stroke, and theyve been tied much of the way.No one else is even close. J.B. Holmes is holding down third place, a staggering nine shots off Stensons 16-under at the top of the leaderboard.---4:25 p.m.The Railway hole can prove to be a card-wrecker at Royal Troon. Just ask Thomas Pieters.The Belgian snapped his iron in two and flung both pieces in the nearby heather on the way to making a quintuple-bogey 9 at the 11th. He was 2-under for his final round at that point. Wholesale Washington Redskins Jerseys. That par-4 hole played alongside a railway line ranks the hardest at Troon on Sunday. Like it did on Thursday and Saturday.---3:20 p.m.There already have been two lead changes in the first three holes of the British Open.Henrik Stenson began the final round Sunday with a one-shot lead, but gave it up with three-putt bogey at No. 1. Phil Mickelson spun his approach shot about two feet from the flag and tapped in for birdie and a one-stroke lead.Stenson tied it up with a birdie of his own at the second hole, rolling in a 15-foot putt. Mickelson made a brilliant up-and-down after missing the green with his approach, nearly holing out a chip over a bunker.Then, at No. 3, Stenson made an 18-foot birdie putt to push his score to 13 under. He reclaimed the lead when Mickelson missed a 6-foot birdie try.Conditions have improved for the afternoon starters at Royal Troon, with the sun breaking through the clouds and the winds dying down a bit.It looks like there could be some low scores before the day is done.

No one else is within six shots of the lead.Just before walking to the first tee, Mickelson and Stenson met on the practice green next to the Royal Troon clubhouse.How are you, Henrik? Mickelson asked.They both smiled and shook hands.---2:10 p.m.Jordan Spieth has snapped an unwanted streak at the British Open.The 22-year-old Texan had gone 10 straight rounds in major championships without breaking par. That run ended Sunday, when he shot a 3-under 68 in the final round at Royal Troon.Spieth made an eagle at the par-5 fourth hole and added three more birdies on the inward nine to become the first player all day to break par on another windy day along the Irish Sea. It was his best round in a major since a 66 in the opening round of this years Masters.Spieth hopes to build on that momentum at the PGA Championship in two weeks. He dropped out of the Rio Olympics, citing health concerns.---1:45 p.m.This was supposed to be a British Open farewell for Colin Montgomerie.Now the 53-year-old says he hopes to qualify again for golfs oldest major championship.Montgomerie accomplished his major goal at Royal Troon, which was making the cut on his home course. Playing with a marker in the first group, he shot 76 on Sunday and finished at 17-over 301 for the tournament.Asked if he would attempt to qualify for another Open, Monty says hed love to try and do that again. That was a change in his thinking before the tournament, when he indicated he wouldnt go through qualifying again.Even in tough conditions, Montgomerie breezed through the final round in less than three hours. He wishes that was the norm in golf, instead of players routinely taking four hours or more.

KINGSTON, R. Cheap Tyler Eifert Jersey .I. -- After coasting through its first two games, No. 21 Rhode Island finally played a team that wasnt out of contention by halftime.Jared Terrell scored 18 points and E.C. Matthews added 17 as the Rams staved off upset-minded Brown on Wednesday night in Round Two of the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off.This is the first time we got challenged since weve been on the court, Rams coach Dan Hurley said. Its the first time we were in something tight where we had to make some plays.Some mind-boggling things went on. We got out-hustled. I think we were a little full of ourselves today and this was the perfect opponent for us to get upset. Can this be a positive for us? Yes.Steven Spieth paced the Bears (1-2) with 21 points while Brandon Anderson added 16. Hassan Martin added 12 points for the Rams (3-0).We knew we would be challenged and that if we took care of the ball we would have had a chance, Brown coach Mike Martin said. In a game like this, every possession is critical and we had a few empty chances in the second half.After trailing 36-21 in the first half, Brown pulled within 41-33 at intermission as Spieth scored six points in the last 27 seconds.Obviously Im happy to survive the game, Hurley said. My hats off to Mike and his team. He had his guys really ready to play.They were really scrappy. I thought Spieth was the best player on the court. On our end Im disappointed because we had several chances in the first half to extend it and get away like we did in our first two games.Even though Rhode Island shot 57.7 percent from the field in the second half, the fact Brown switched from man-to-man to a zone defense still gave the Rams trouble.At one point Brown trailed 58-53 before Martin and Matthews ignited a rally that enabled Rhode Island to pull away.Great teams at that point get separation, Hurley said of his teams first-half play. I have much respect for the way their guys showed up and competed.BIG PICTUREBrown: The Bears tied for last last season in the Ivy League. But they may have delivered a message that this scenario wont be repeated after they upset Niagara 77-67 in their home opener on Nov. 13 and played Rhode Island tough on Wednesday.Rhode Island: Season-opening routs of Dartmouth and Marist enabled the Rams to move up two spots in the Top 25 poll, to No. 21. Logic dictates their road will become more difficult to traverse as the season progresses.POLL IMPLICATIONS: At the least the Rams didnt hurt their standings in the poll but how much this hard-fought victory will enable them to move up is debatable.HIGHLIGHT REEL: Martin continues to guard his teams basket like it contains the crown jewels as he blocked six shots which gave him a total of 262. That number ranks second among all active NCAA Division I players.TURNING POINT: The Bears had sliced their deficit from 15 points to 58-55 with 10:39 left in regulation. But Martin blunted that rally by sandwiching a dunk and a tip-in around a free throw by Matthews.FRESHMAN STANDOUT: Browns Anderson, who had only scored three points in his first two games, finished with 16 points and four rebounds with four steals.UP NEXTBrown should be favored when it faces Marist on Saturday in the Springfield Bracket of the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off at the Mohegan Sun Arena. The Red Foxes opened their season with a 94-49 loss to No. 1 Duke and a 107-65 defeat by Rhode Island.Rhode Island will face its most challenging, early season opponent on Saturday when it plays No. 24 Cincinnati in the Naismith Bracket of the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off at the Mohegan Sun Arena. The Bearcats have won their first two games, outscoring Albany and Brown by an average score of 79-53. Boomer Esiason Jersey .

MANCHESTER, England -- Gareth Southgates four-game spell as Englands interim manager will end at full time of Tuesdays international friendly against Spain at Wembley Stadium. Bryan Trottier Jersey .Whatever fate befalls Southgate -- and the likelihood is hell soon be handed the job on a full-time basis -- he has already made a significant imprint on the team.One of the key principles Southgate has stamped on the national side in his five weeks temporarily in charge has been an insistence on playing the ball out from the back -- an approach that is slowly pervading the English Premier League but can sometimes be viewed with skepticism by the English public.I want us to be brave with the ball, Southgate said last month in some of his first words in the job. I want to see an England team that is brave in possession of the ball and prepared to take chances, prepared to take?risks in one versus one situations, even though I know they wont always succeed in those moments.In defender John Stones, Southgate has a player who embodies this attitude.Stones is a ball-playing center back who moved to Manchester City in August for 47.5 million pounds (then $62 million), making him the second-most expensive defender in football history. He fit the bill for new City coach Pep Guardiola, who likes his teams to have defenders who are comfortable on the ball and can start attacks from the back.Southgate is similar in that regard and adopted a similar playing style as manager of Englands under-21 squad, so its no wonder he has made Stones the centerpiece of Englands defense in his brief time in charge of the senior team.England hasnt conceded a goal thus far under Southgate, although the opponents have been mediocre at best in Malta, Slovakia and Scotland.Spain will offer a much tougher test. As masters of playing the ball out from the back, the Spanish will also serve as a good example to their England counterparts of how to execute such an approach.Some have even compared the play of the 22-year-old Stones to that of Spain defender Gerard Pique, who will miss Tuesdays game because of an ankle injury.In the 3-0 win over Scotland on Friday, Stones determination to play out from the back saw him give the ball away in a dangerous position early on. He also took perhaps unnecessary risks around the edge of his own box in an attempt to beat Scotlands high press.At the start of the year, Stones -- then playing for Everton -- performed three Cruyff turns around his box while being challenged for the ball in a Premier League match against Tottenham. He earned a free kick and gave a calm down gesture to the fans who were audibly unnerved by Stones risk-taking.Its the only way he knows.Its understandable that people will say things about the way I play, that some people arent going to like me, Stones said last month. But this is how I want to play.Given his style, Stones will always make errors. One of them occurred in a 1-1 draw against Southampton last month when his pass to a teammate at the edge of Citys area was intercepted by Nathan Redmond, who scored.Theres also a concern that when playing for his national team, Stones doesnt have a goalkeeper or the defensive players alongside him with strong enough technique and composure to ensure that playing out from the back is the right optionSouthgate isnt for wavering, though. He believes Stones can have as successful a career as Pique and Germany center backs Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng, and that Stones needs encouragement rather than criticism.For years, weve talked about not being able to play out from the back, Southgate said of the England psyche. If were to be different, if were to progress, then we have to encourage players.What weve got to remember is hes 22. In central defensive terms, its nothing. If we want to have a Hummels, a Boateng, a Pique ... I think hes got the perfect manager (in Guardiola) to work with and to hone, and for all of our defenders, thats what we want to encourage. Anders Lee Jersey .

Through the opening weeks of the season, the Edmonton Oilers emerged as something of a pleasant surprise as they strung together wins and moved atop the Pacific Division. Adrian Phillips Jersey .But the season is one long grind, and their next opponent is no pushover.The Oilers will try to avoid their first three-game losing streak on Sunday night when they meet the New York Rangers, who come to Rogers Arena with the leagues most potent offense.New York (11-4-0) is going for its third win in four visits to Edmonton and first two-game season series sweep of the Oilers since 1998-99.Edmonton (9-5-1) began the season winning seven of eight, but the Oilers have coooled off by going 2-4-1. That included a 5-3 loss to the Rangers on Nov. 3 at Madison Square Garden, where New York erased a third-period deficit with three consecutive goals.After wrapping up a five-game Eastern swing with a loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night, the Oilers were beaten 3-2 on Friday by the injury-riddled Dallas Stars.McLellan wasnt citing any residual effect from the road trip as a reason for coming out flat.Its always an excuse when you lose, McLellan told the Edmonton Journal. If we come out and play a great game, were not talking about playing five games in eight days on the road. Its the NHL. We have to do it eight times a year and so does everybody else. No excuses. Show up to the rink ready to play.Edmontons Connor McDavid drew an assist Friday, giving him five during a three-game streak. McDavid, who also had an assist against the Rangers this month, is tied with Alexander Wennberg of the Columbus Blue Jackets for the league lead with 13.However, the Oilers 19-year-old captain remains stuck on five goals as he has failed to score in seven straight games.Another player who has struggled for the Oilers is goaltender Cam Talbot, who backed up the Rangers Henrik Lundqvist for two seasons before being dealt to Edmonton in June 2015.Talbot is 1-3-1 with 3.39 goals-against average and .890 save percentage this month after going 7-2-0 with a 2.04 GAA, .936 save percentage and two shutouts in October.Edmonton still leads the Pacific Division with 19 points, one more than the San Jose Sharks and two points in front of the Anaheim Ducks. And in spite of the Oilers recent play, center Mark Letestu told the teams official website Saturday that theres no reason why Edmonton cant keep up with the Rangers.If we can take anything from that game at Madison Square Garden, its were right there with them, said Letestu, who has two goals and four assists in 15 games. There should be confidence in this room that we can beat them and we should play with that kind of bravado and swagger out there.This is a team thats coming into our house and we expect to win so I think its going to be a great game. Two good teams, real fast, well see how it goes.The Rangers run through western Canada as part of a four-game road trip got off to a flying start with a 4-1 win over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night.Michael Grabner, Derek Stepan and rookies Jimmy Vesey and Pavel Buchnevich each scored for New York, which is averaging 4.13 goals per game.Its impressive to see how we create chances every game, said Lundqvist, who came within 8:48 of a shutout. ... It gives the team a lot of confidence knowing we can score if we really have to.Grabner has a team-high eight goals in 15 games. That matches his total in 34 games with the New York Islanders in 2014-15, and is one off the nine he had in 80 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs last season.Grabner, who notched a goal and an assist against the Oilers 11 days ago, has one career assist in five games in Edmonton.Lundqvist made 35 saves on Saturday and has been outstanding in his last eight starts, going 7-1-0 with a 1.88 GAA, .934 save percentage and a shutout.Hes making key saves, especially early in the year and early in games, Grabner said of Lundqvist. ... Hes one of the best goalies in the world.However, his last appearance in Edmonton was forgettable. Lundqvist surrendered five goals on 33 shots and was lifted 2:40 in the third period of a 7-5 loss on Dec. 11, 2015.Rangers center Rick Nash has three goals and four assists in a four-game points streak against Edmonton. Nash also has three goals and six assists in his last eight games in northern Alberta. Cheap Spencer Pulley Jersey . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . Cheap Dan Feeney Jersey .

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Sullivan ranks Kris Letang as one of the top three defensemen in the NHL.Letang justified that lofty praise in his return after missing five games with an upper-body injury, scoring a power-play goal and adding an assist as the Penguins defeated the Anaheim Ducks 5-1 on Wednesday night.Matt Murray stopped 32 shots in his season debut after breaking his hand during the World Cup of Hockey, while Patrick Hornqvist, Bryan Rust, Matt Cullen and Evgeni Malkin also scored for the Penguins.Letang scored 1:27 into the third period for his first goal of the season, flashing offensive skills comparable to that of the Penguins front-line stars. Taking a pass from Justin Schultz, Letang unleashed a quick wrist shot past a bewildered John Gibson.Letang also had a backhanded shot that was deflected up and off the crossbar by Nick Bonino before Rust used his positioning in the crease to clean it up, extending the Penguins lead to 3-1 late in the third period.Hes that impactful on the game, Sullivan said of Letang. He helps you get out of your own zone, he joins the rush, he makes plays off the rush. When he is in our lineup I think were obviously a much better team at both ends of the rink.Gibson made 29 saves, stopping a penalty shot by Scott Wilson in the third period after being bowled over by the Penguins forward. Gibson was replaced by Jonathan Bernier midway through the third period.The Ducks have been outscored 9-1 in their last two home games, Hornqvist adding the final goal midway through the third period.You dont want to dwell on it too much, its one hockey game, but the way we executed and some of the things we did out there were just out of character, said Cam Fowler, who scored the Ducks lone goal. We defended the whole time, gave them too much momentum and theey were able to feed off it. Derek Watt Jersey. They were able to do whatever they wanted to whenever they wanted to.Malkin put the Penguins ahead 7:41 into the first period, scoring his sixth goal of the season. Chris Kunitz intercepted a misplayed pass from Corey Perry to Kevin Bieksa at the blue line. Phil Kessel then found Malkin in the far circle winding up for the one-timer well before the puck left the tape on Kessels stick.Malkin, Kessel and Sidney Crosby all extended their points streaks to four games, with Kessel collecting six of his team-leading seven assists in that span. Thirteen Penguins recorded a point, Letang the only one with more than one.We were on the puck all over the rink, and when we do that were hard to play against, Sullivan said. Overall its probably one of our more complete games this year.Cullen scored 2:33 later to give the Penguins a 2-0 lead on his 40th birthday. The Ducks challenged that Tom Sestito was offside when playing a long pass from Eric Fehr before setting up Cullen, but video review was inconclusive and the play stood as called. Ducks defenseman Josh Manson whiffed on his chance to bat the puck down with his glove as it passed through the neutral zone.Ryan Kesler had an assist on Fowlers goal for his 500th career point.Game notesPenguins: Marc-Andre Fleury will start in goal against the Kings, Sullivan said.Ducks: C Ryan Getzlaf and LW Nick Ritchie did not play and are day-to-day with upper-body injuries. . Fowler is fourth in franchise history for goals by a defenseman with 38, while his 20 power-play goals is tied with Chris Pronger for third among Ducks defensemen.UP NEXT:Penguins: Visit Los Angeles on Thursday.Ducks: Host Arizona on Friday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
Englands Ryan Evans took a one-shot lead in the first round of the Czech Masters as Ryder Cup hopefuls Matthew Fitzpatrick and Andy Sullivan endured a day of contrasting fortunes in Prague. Cheap Jason Verrett Jersey .Evans was playing in just his 21st event on the European Tour but showed the nerves of a veteran to hole a 10-foot putt on the last to sign for a 66 and a six-under-par total.That was good enough to give him a one-shot lead over defending champion Thomas Pieters and Swede Peter Hanson, with 32 players within four shots of the lead at Albatros Golf Resort.I didnt really think about trying to lead the tournament, I was just thinking about trying to put a good score together today, said Evans. Ive been playing well the last few weeks and the one thing I can take out of today is that I putted really well.Its my first time leading but theres a first time for everything so Im not going to think about it too much and stick to the game plan I had for the week -- hit as many fairways and greens as I can and if the putts go in, who knows what can happen?Belgian Pieters -- fresh off the back of a fourth-placed finish at the Olympics -- held a two-shot lead before recording a double-bogey on the eighth, while Hanson was bogey-free in his 67.English duo Robert Coles and Graeme Storm, Scotsmen Scott Jamieson and Craig Lee, Wales Bradley Dredge, Swede Robert Karlsson and Denmarks Jeff Winther were at four under, a shot clear of Fitzpatrick.The Sheffield native currently holds the final qualifying spot for Darren Clarkes European Ryder Cup team and is aiming for a good week to secure his place at Hazeltine.Sullivan is a place ahead of Fitzpatrick in the standings but he may struggle to make the cut on Friday after an opening three-over-par 75.Lee Westwood will be relying on a captains pick if he is to get to a 10th Ryder Cup in September, and he was four shots off the lead after an opening 70. Wholesale Chargers Jerseys .

CLEMSON, S.C. -- The Deshaun Watson watch is on at No. 3 Clemson.The Tigers Heisman Trophy contender fell hard on his right, throwing shoulder Saturday just before halftime in a 54-0 win over Syracuse and did not return. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney and Watson both said he couldve returned, but with the Tigers (9-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) already up by four touchdowns at the break, it was not necessary.Watson appeared with an ice pack on his shoulder in postgame interviews. He was not available for his regular Monday media session because he was taking treatment on the sore shoulder. A Clemson spokesman said he might be available on Tuesday.Clemson co-offensive coordinator Tony Elliott was confident Watson would be behind center when the Tigers try and wrap up the ACC Atlantic Division against Pitt (5-4, 2-3) on Saturday.Watsons roommate, receiver Artavis Scott, was also confident hed catch passes from his longtime teammate.Its football, Scott said Monday. Everybodys banged up. Hell be fine.Watson, the 6-foot-3, 215-pound junior, has been extremely durable the past two seasons in leading Clemson to a 23-1 record -- the lone loss coming to Alabama 45-40 in last Januarys national championship game.Watson has been the main cog of a fast-paced offense where hes expected to move the chains with his legs along with his accurate arm. He became the first player in the Football Bowl Subdivision to throw for more than 4,000 yards and run for more than 1,000 last year.Watson finished 2015 with 491 passes and 207 carries, without suffering any major injuries. Thats why most orange-clad fans in Death Valley held their breath when Watson jogged to the sidelines with Clemson in the midst of a TD drive right before the half.He came down hard on the shoulder after a tackle by Syracuse defenders Davion Ellison and Rodney Williams. Watson threw incomplete on the next play before leaving the game forr good. Cheap Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys. winney said Watson looked good on Sunday, would receive treatment Monday and that he would get him back in practice the early part of the week.Elliott said he and co-coordinator Jeff Scott will game play as they have the past two seasons -- with Watson as their starting quarterback.Clemsons offense showed it could operate with Watson on the sidelines as fifth-year senior Nick Schuessler threw for two touchdowns and 177 yards -- more than Watson -- in relief.Schuessler, a one-time Mississippi State signee, has stood on the sidelines the past few years, backing up starter Tajh Boyd in 2013, Cole Stoudt and Watson in 2014, and Watson these final two seasons. Schuessler has no illusions hell see much more playing time down the stretch if Watsons close to 100 percent.I just want to do well whenever Im called on, Schuessler said.It wasnt long ago some worried that Watson might be injury plagued .Watson cracked a collarbone during his first spring practice in 2014, then injured a finger in a start against Louisville that same season. Watson returned four games later at Georgia Tech, but left that game early with a knee bruise.Watson missed the next game before playing with a braced-up, torn ACL -- Swinney said he tore it in practice that week and not against Georgia Tech -- as the Tigers ended a humiliating, unprecedented five-game losing streak to rival South Carolina.A short time later, Watson underwent knee surgery and was out for Clemsons bowl game to close the season. He has not missed a start since.In Elliotts mind, that streak wont end this week.Hes got a bruised shoulder, but was able to come out and throw the football in second-half warmups, he said.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio - The Cavaliers welcomed their two newest players and continued to work on signing their biggest free-agent acquisition. James White Jersey . Guard Jarrett Jack and forward Earl Clark signed their contracts Friday with the Cavs, who also have an agreement with centre Andrew Bynum. The sides are still finalizing Bynums contract, so general manager Chris Grant was unable to talk about the 7-foot centre. Bynum was traded to Philadelphia last summer but never played because of knee injuries. Jack, who signed a four-year, $25 million deal, said Bynum "when healthy, hes one of the best, if not the best big men in the game." Jack revealed that he grew up on the same street as Browns cornerback Joe Haden. Jordan Richards Jersey . Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow.

The All-Pro lineman got the leg bent under him while trying to make a tackle during the first half of a 22-20 overtime loss at Miami on Thursday night. The medical staff initially thought hed torn the ligament, and the test a day later in Cincinnati confirmed it.Wigan saw off a second-half fightback from Catalans Dragons as they ground out a 12-6 win in the opening round of Super League. Michael McIlorum scored two tries to give the Warriors a 10-0 lead at half-time at the DW Stadium on Friday night, and though Dragons hit back with a try of their own within three minutes of the start of the second half, the visitors were unable to orchestrate a famous fightback in their first outing of the new campaign.Matty Smith then added a penalty to close out a game that was plagued by poor weather from the outset. The heavens had opened in the minutes that led to kick-off, and the weather remained a constant damper on the game throughout.It was the Dragons who were most bothered by the slippery conditions initially, as handling errors eroded several attacking opportunities. Ben Flower is tackled by Jason Baitieri of Catalans Dragons McIlorum then opened the scoring when one such handling error from the visitors saw the ball spilled right in front of their line in the tackle, and the hooker pounced to cross the whitewash. The video referee was asked to check that there had been no foul play to free the ball but he confirmed there had been none, and Wigan led 4-0 after the conversion was missed.Catalans were not deterred in their desire to play running rugby, but perhaps should have been, as more handling errors decorated their opening quarter.The Perpignan sides problems were then compounded when McIlorum scored his second. The Warrior passed to George Williams, who stepped the defence before offloading to McIlorum in support, with the latter diving over for the try. Matty Smith slotted the conversion to give his side a 10-point lead. Wigans Michael McIlorum scores his second try against the Dragons The Dragons threatened to come back into it but the Wigan defence was resolute in the mud, and the visitors were unable put any kind of dent in the deficit as the scorre remained 10-0 at half-time. Danny Amendola Jersey. However, Catalans started the second half with purpose, and Richie Myler spotted a gap behind the defence early on to put a perfectly weighted kick into the in-goal area.Wigans Lewis Tierney looked comfortable in his attempt to shepherd the ball out, but Justin Horo squeezed through and grounded the ball to hand former Wigan star Pat Richards an important conversion attempt. The conversion was sent over, and it looked like Catalans were back in the game. Reaction from man-of-the-match Michael McIlorum, Warriors coach Shaun Wane and Catalans counterpart Laurent Frayssinous They continued to grow into the encounter, looking the more threatening of the two sides for long periods, but the Warriors defence held out to frustrate the opposition.When the Dragons were penalised in front of the poles in the 54th minute, Matty Smith opted to kick for goal and landed the opportunity to take a 12-6 lead.The pressure seemed to tell for the Dragons, who then began to suffer again from the handling errors that kept them out in the first half, and with conditions deteriorating even further, neither side was able to add another score.Watch Wigan in Super League action away to Huddersfield next Friday, live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 7.30pm.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The confident talk around the British team before these Olympics was that they would return home with their best ever away-Games medal haul. D.J. Reader Jersey . It was even suggested claiming 48 podium places or more would unite a divided nation.But Adam Peatys spectacular performances in the pool apart, the first few days havent quite lived up to expectations.By teatime in Brazil on Tuesday, after 50 events, only four British entrants had finished in the top three in their disciplines and Team GB were level with Kazakhstan and Thailand in the medal count.Early hopes for Chris Froome and Lizzie Armitstead faded and there have been a series of sorry slips, with David Florence in the C1 canoe slalom final the latest among them on Tuesday.He had won silver in the event in Beijing and finished second in the pairs version of it, the C2, in London. In Rio, pretty much everything that could have gone wrong in the final did as he finished last in a field of 10, nearly 15 seconds behind French winner Denis Chanut Gargaud.Florence claimed the mistakes he made were catastrophic. Four years of preparations and unfortunately that makes it all seem like a little bit of a waste of time, he said.It certainly wasnt the best way to celebrate his 34th birthday, which was on Monday, but at least the world champion in both C1 and C2 disciplines was in good company within Team GB.Geraint Thomas, who crashed in the mens cycling road race, could probably sympathise, and so could Louis Smith, who fell off the pommel horse as Britains men failed to meet expectations in the team gymnastics event.William Fox-Pitt, the main man in the British equestrian squad, also disappointed, taking the blame as the nation missed out on a team eventing medal for the first time since 1996.There is plenty of time for a team full of talented athletes to get things back on track, of course, and the successes of Olympic 100 metre breaststroke champion Peaty and Tom Daley, who took bronze with Dan Goodfellow in the 10m platform synchronised diving on Monday, have been rightly celebrated.Some of those who havent yet tasted success still have chances to come, too, and Florence will have an opportunity to make amends in the C2 event, which starts on Thursday.I can pick myself up, it will be easy -- I have done it loads of times, said Florence, whose wife and parents were among a large and loud group of supporters here. I am more used to disappointment than success.London was very disappointing [when he failed to make the C1 final], today was very disappointing. Hopefully, in a couple of days it wont be as disappointing.The margins are tiny, it comes down to one run. I have no problems for the C2 and will be able to give it my all.Florences attempt to negotiate gates 8, 9 and 10 were where it went wrong for him and he said it was unrecoverable from there.He didnt look for excuses, but if he had a lack of preparation couldnt have been one. The journey to Rio for the Games was the canoeists sixth trip to Brazil, and the British spent a great deal of time and money ensuring their athletes were familiar with the Whitewater Stadium course in Deodoro.Before the Games, Team GB coaches boasted about the comprehensive nature of their approach compared to other nations, and Florence must hope that all that work pays off for him when he competes with partner Richard Hounslow.Florence obviously felt keenly disappointed about his C1 performance but he was reasonably philosophical. The experience of competing in Canoe slalom probably makes all its athletes a little bit like that, given it is as much about not making mistakes as it is about going fast.Hes a pretty logical guy, too, if his mathematical physics degree and previous application to become an astronaut are anything to go by.But what about the people around him: Hounslow and his family and friends? They [my supporters] will be disappointed. Hopefully they have had a good time anyway. They will be here in a couple of days to cheer for the C2 and for the other guys in Team GB.Its up to me really [to pick myself up]. Richard will be there and ready to paddle. I hope he knows I will be ready to give it my all. Hopefully well put in a good run, get to the final, and who knows.Braxton Miller Jersey .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Deshaun Watson Jersey .

OMAHA, Neb. -- Longtime rivals Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps set up their lone showdown at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials by qualifying first and second in the 200-meter individual medley Thursday.Lochte had the top time of 1 minute, 58.05 seconds in the preliminaries. He emerged from the pool limping as a result of the groin injury he suffered Sunday on the first day of trials. It has hampered his performances throughout the week. He has been getting treatment and tweaking the way he swims to compensate.I felt it on the first kick of breaststroke, Lochte said. Ive just got to get a massage, rub it out and hopefully Ill be better.Phelps was second fastest in 1:58.95 on his 31st birthday. His 7-week-old son, Boomer, sat on his mothers lap in the stands during his heat.I feel older, he said. My muscles arent the same. They hurt a lot worse this morning.Lochte and Phelps advanced to the 16-man evening semifinals, along with Austin Surhoff, the son of former major league baseball player B.J. Surhoff. He was fifth fastest in 2:00.26. Also moving on was Michael Andrew, a 17-year-old who has already turned pro. He finished third in Phelps heat and ninth overall.Lochte is already on the team as a relay swimmer based on his fourth-place finish in the 200 freestyle. He wants to swim an individual event in Rio, and the 200 IM represents his last -- and best -- chance after he was third in the 400 IM, one spot out of a berth.The 31-year-old dropped out of the 200 backstroke on Thursday to focus on the 200 IM.It was kind of hard watching it just because I love that event, but I did whats best for me, Lochte said.Phelps made his rrecord fifth Olympic team by winning the 200 butterfly Wednesday. Kareem Jackson Jersey. didnt really sleep last night.

Lochte won the event at last years world championships in Russia, where Phelps couldnt compete while serving a suspension from USA Swimming after his second drunken driving arrest.In other preliminaries, Jacob Pebley and defending Olympic champion Tyler Clary had the two fastest times in the 200 backstroke heats. Pebley was timed in 1:56.29 and Clary went 1:56.85 to make the evening semifinals. Ryan Murphy, the 100 back winner at trials, was third quickest in 1:57.35.On the womens side, teenager Abbey Weitzeil and 30-year-old Olympic veteran Amanda Weir were the two fastest in the 100 freestyle featuring a loaded field. Weitzeil qualified first in 53.58 seconds and Weir was second in 53.76.Dana Vollmer was third quickest in 53.80 and Simone Manuel was fourth in 53.84.Also advancing to the semifinals were Kelsi Worrell, Katie Ledecky, Lia Neal, Missy Franklin, Olivia Smoliga, Natalie Coughlin and Allison Schmitt.In the 200 breaststroke, Micah Lawrence had the fastest time of 2:26.27.

PHILADELPHIA -- Hit or no hit, Maikel Franco was just happy the Phillies won. DOnta Foreman Jersey .Franco drove home the winning run with one out in the 12th inning on a play that eventually was ruled a single to give Philadelphia a 5-4 victory over the struggling San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night.Ryan Howard homered among his three hits and Cameron Rupp also connected for Philadelphia. Franco finished with three RBI, including one on the unusual sequence that ended the game.With the bases loaded and one out, Franco lined what appeared to be a clean single into right-center field. But young teammate Aaron Altherr, who was on first base, got so excited about the Phillies winning that he rushed out to right field to congratulate Franco without ever touching second base.Giants catcher Buster Posey noticed the blunder and took a throw at second from right fielder Hunter Pence -- and second base umpire Dale Scott signaled that Altherr was out. Franco did indeed cross first base, though, so Tommy Joseph scored easily from third and the Giants had no chance at an inning-ending double play.When I saw (Hunter) Pence run out to center field to get the ball, I was like, `Whats going on here? Altherr said. Then when I saw him throw to second I was like, `Oh, (no). I feel terrible about it. Im just thankful we still got the win.Altherr said he would buy Franco dinner if the mistake cost his teammate a hit, but after a long delay following the game, the official scorer credited Franco with a single.Its more important that we won the ballgame, Franco said before the ruling. I got my RBI, we win the ballgame, thats what this game is all about.Posey singled, doubled and drove in three runs for the NL West leaders, who have lost 13 of 17 since the All-Star break. Denard Span had three hits.George Kontos (2-2) started the 12th by hitting Joseph with a pitch. He went to second on Luis Garcias sacrifice bunt and Philadelphia had runners on first and second with one out after Kontos walked Cesar Hernandez.Giants manager Bruce Bochy called on Jake Peavy for his first appearance since being demoted to the bullpen when the team acquired left-hander Matt Moore from Tampa Bay on Monday.Peavy induced a grounder by Altherr, but he reached to load the bases when third baseman Eduardo Nunez bobbled the ball for an error.Franco then drove the next pitch from Peavy into right-center.Anytime you win in extra innings, its a great win, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. When you lose, its terrible.Garcia (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the win, capping an impressive performance by Philadelphias bullpen. Six relievers combined to pitch seven shutout innings while allowing two hits.That was difference in the game, Bochy said. Their `pen shut us down completely.The teams combined to use 14 pitchers in a game that took 4 hours, 2 minutes.Franco hit a two-out, two-run single in the eighth off Giants starter Johnny Cueto to tie the score at 4 and complete Philadelphias comeback from a 4-0 deficit.FOR STARTERSGiants: Cueto was cruising along until giving up a pair of homers in the seventh and Francos hit in the eighth. He was lifted after allowing four runs in 7 2/3 innings while recording his 12th career double-digit strikeout game by fanning 10 Phillies. He gave up seven hits and walked one.I felt normal, Cueto said through a translator. I made all my pitches. The only thing I can say is they beat me.Phillies: Phil Klein recovered from a shaky first inning in an emergency start and lasted five innings, giving up four runs and eight hits. Philadelphia scratched scheduled starter Aaron Nola 4 hours before the game and placed him on the 15-day disabled list with a strained elbow.Prior to Wednesday, Klein made eight relief appearances for Texas this season and had pitched 36 games in his big league career. He was a 30th-round selection by the Rangers in 2011.Klein was optioned back to Triple-A after the game.NOLA SIDELINEDNola (6-9, 4.78 ERA) said he felt discomfort after his most recent start on Thursday in Atlanta.But I really didnt think it was anything, he said. It just kind of got sore a little bit. It kind of prolonged for the next couple of days and I told the (Phillies staff).The 23-year-old righty has been struggling for nearly two months and has a 9.82 ERA in his last eight starts. The Phillies skipped him once in the rotation before the All-Star break, but Nola said his struggles have had nothing to do with his health.No, no, I never felt any pain or any soreness, he said. I guess it just kind of flared up in that one game.Nola hopes to return this season, though the Phillies could be cautious with a young pitcher who is considered one of the key cornerstones in their rebuild.UP NEXTThe teams conclude their three-game series Thursday afternoon when Phillies RHP Vince Velasquez (8-3, 3.32 ERA) opposes Moore (7-7, 4.08). J.J. Watt Jersey .  Aside from the trilogy main event title fight, there are a number of intriguing matchups in the heavyweight, welterweight and lightweight divisions. Lamar Miller Jersey . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. http://www.cheaptexansjerseyselite.com/?tag=cheap-d-j-reader-jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. By the time Jonathan Trott trudged off the pitch at the end of Englands Caribbean tour in 2015, it seemed his days in the sun were over.What once had come so easily had become torturous. He admits to have a sense of relief when he was dismissed in the second innings of that final Test in Barbados: relief he would never have to put himself through the torment again. When Alastair Cook suggested he review the lbw decision, he apparently replied Nah, Im out of here and walked off to one of the more unusual standing ovations you will witness. Everyone knew his international career was over but, despite scores of 0 and 9 in that last Test, the Barmy Army proved they had longer memories than some sports fans when they rose to applaud him off.The months that followed were not easy. Trott didnt just struggle to score runs in the 2015 season - he averaged 25.05 in the Championship - he struggled to muster any enthusiasm for the game. Maybe he even started to resent it.For Trott was a boy brought up to bat. He didnt have a teddy, he had a sawn-down cricket bat. He didnt go on holiday, he went on tour. So while he never much bothered with education - why did he need qualifications when he was going to score centuries? - he learned to express himself through runs. Want to make his parents happy? Score a century. Want to impress new team-mates? Score a century. Runs made everything all right.But, somewhere along the way, batting become too important to him. It wasnt just a game: it was his profession; his identity; his means of providing for his family and making them proud. By the time it all came crashing down - unmasked and, in his eyes, humiliated in public in Brisbane - he felt he had nothing left. He has a book coming out in the coming days (I must declare an interest; I helped him write it) which will surprise a few by revealing the depths to which he sunk and how early in his career the demons started to take control. In short, cricket had become agony to him and he really didnt have anything else to fall back upon.It has taken a long time to recover. But somewhere, maybe through the faith shown in him by Warwickshire, maybe through the hours spent with the psychiatrist Steve Peters, maybe by simply keeping on buggering on (as Winston Churchill memorably put it) he seems to have emerged through the other side of the storm.Oh, yes, the game defeated him in the end. Brisbane and Barbados still happened. Mitchell Johnson was still too good. Nothing will ever change that.But, as he showed at Lords, the experience has not destroyed him. It has scarred him, yes. But he has recovered sufficiently not just to re-emerge as a fine player at this level, but to have rediscovered his enjoyment for this great game. Maybe there is a happy ending to his story, after all.There should be. While his international career ended in failure - they nearly always do - there were some great days along the way. There were Ashes wins at home at away. There was the rise to No. 1 in the Test and ODI rankings. There was the highest ODI batting average of any regular England batsman. It would be a shame if all that was overshadowed by the ending. It would be a shame if his second Test in Brisbane was remembered but his first not.It looks, at least, as if he will be able to look back with a sense of proportion and pride. To have paid the club he loves back with a Man-of-the-Match performance in a Lords final will ensure he leaves the game - and that departure is not especially imminent - with head held high and good memories outweighing the bad. He finishes as the competitions second-highest run-scorer (only team-mate and imitator Sam Hain scored more) with three centuries and two half-centuries from seven innings. Ryan Griffin Jersey. You didnt have to be a Warwickshire supporter to celebrate his success.For maybe the first time in his career, Trott is playing the game for fun. He still puts himself under pressure to perform - as an ex-international player you want to set the standard he said - but he is not driven by the same desperation to prove himself. He knows there is more to life than cricket now. He knows its not everything. There were many heroes in this Warwickshire performance. There was Laurie Evans, who owed his selection over Ireland captain William Porterfield to an impressive display in a fielding training session earlier in the week and took what may have been a match-defining effort to dismiss Jason Roy. There was Oliver Hannon-Dalby, who gained seam movement absent to Surreys hugely talented quartet of pace bowlers. There was Chris Wright, who bowled with intelligence and control to tighten the grip on Surreys nervous batsmen. There was Tim Ambrose, who shrugged off injury to keep magnificently on a tricky surface and completed a stumping off a leg-side wide as if it was easy. There was Dougie Brown, who remains under pressure, but deserves time to lead this team through a tricky transition; the club will not find a coach who works harder or cares more. And there was Jeetan Patel who, with his quicker pace and greater turn, easily out-bowled Surreys two spinners. As Ian Bell said afterwards: He is the standout spinner in county cricket.But most of all there was Trott. The limited-overs game may have moved on from the time he took England to the brink of their first global ODI trophy - he still refers to the Champions Trophy final defeat at Edgbaston in 2013 as the biggest disappointment of his career and the moment his decline began - but if you need a man to chase a relatively modest target, there is nobody better. There might never have been anyone better. He was never going to let a chase of 137 bother him.If theres one bloke in world cricket who I would want to knock off a small total - or a total where you can pace yourself - it is Jonathan Trott, Bell said.That is not faint praise. This was a surface - a poor surface for a showpiece final, really - on which nobody else in the match passed 40. Only one man reached 30. Not even Roy scored at such a strike rate. It required a man with a calm head and masterful technique to conquer it. It was a reminder of the high-class player he once was.It was noticeable at the end that the supporters of Surrey, as much as Warwickshire, stood to applaud him. As cricket crowds become more partisan such moments become ever less frequent. But maybe there has been something in Trotts public struggle - and his public attempts to overcome it - that struck a chord with spectators. That has endeared him to them in a way that runs and records never can. Most people have experienced failure and fear at some time; they can respect a man who has faced his and, if not defeated them, at least not allowed to let them defeat him.It was noticeable, too, that with the game won and the rest of the players leaving the pitch, Trott paused for a while and marked his guard one more time. It was a ritual that once seemed to infuriate, but now appears a more endearing quirk. Trott will leave the game with a smile on his face and many good memories. From the position he was in not so long, that is something to be cherished. 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 ' ' '
