Rickie Fowler bolstered his chances of a first PGA Tour victory of 2016 by moving in to a one-shot lead after the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship. Cheap Indiana Pacers Jerseys . Latest leaderboard Wells Fargo Championship The world No 5, who won the tournament in 2012, fired a joint-low round-of-the-day 68 to move above overnight leader Andrew Loupe and long-time pacesetter Robert Castro at the top of the leaderboard.Resuming three strokes back, Fowler mixed six birdies with two bogeys during an impressive display in tough scoring conditions at Quail Hollow. Fowler played alongside Scott Langley for the third round at Quail Hollow After starting with seven consecutive pars, Fowler followed a five-foot gain at the eighth with a 15-footer at the next to reach the turn in 34.Fowler made it a hat-trick of birdies at the 10th to move within one of Castro, only to drop shots when he two-putted the next from nine feet and failed to get up-and-down from the sand at the short 13th.The world No 5 bounced back by reeling in three birdies in as many holes to join Castro in a tie for the lead, before closing with back-to-back pars to set the clubhouse target at nine under. Rickie Fowler posted a joint-low round-of-the-day 68 to set the clubhouse lead at the Wells Fargo Championship I got off to a little bit of a slow start and had a couple of unfortunate bogeys, but other than that a good day, Fowler told Sky Sports. I stayed patient, hit a lot of good shots and made some good putts, so definitely excited going in to tomorrow [Sunday].Castro took advantage of Loupes early back-to-back bogeys to move in to the share of the lead, before taking the outright lead when Loupe posted a third blemish of the day at the par-four ninth.The pair, playing in the final group, both posted bogey-fives at the 11th to reduce their cushion over the chasing pack, before Castro bounced back with an eight-foot gain at the 13th. A final-hole bogey cost Castro a share of the advantage The world No 282 gave away the lead to Fowler when he missed the 16th green, only to leave a kick-in gain at the next after a stunning approach tight to the pin. A bogey at the last from Castro saw him close a one-under 71 and slip back to eight under, as Loupe ended with a three-putt double from 40 feet to sign for a third-round 74. McIlroy carded five birdies, four bogeys and one double-bogey in his one-over 73 A blemish-free back nine helped Justin Rose to a three-under 69 to join James Hahn two strokes off the pace, with Scott Langley, playing alongside Fowler, a further shot back alongside Loupe after three birdies in a four-hole stretch late in his round.Phil Mickelsons hopes faded after finding the water at the 16th and running up a quadruple-bogey at the last, leaving him alongside defending champion Rory McIlroy eight strokes adrift.Watch the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship live on Sunday from 6.30pm on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf Also See: Wells Fargo leaderboard McIlroy rues costly errors WATCH: McIlroys monster putt!

It took a mere three plays for Michael Nicastro and Albany to realize this season has a chance to be drastically different than the last.The junior linebackers interception and 38-yard return on the opening drive set the tone for Albanys 22-16 win at Buffalo last Saturday, its first over an FBS opponent. It was a watershed moment for a program thats struggled for relevancy since jumping to the FCS ranks in 1999, and an especially satisfying one for Nicastro. The 2014 All-CAA selection, who finished with 11 tackles, was playing his first game since suffering a gruesome knee injury on the same field in the Great Danes 51-14 loss to the Bulls a year prior.Anybody thats been hurt on a field the year before, theres got to be some apprehension, Albany coach Greg Gattuso said. But he went out and, I should have known, made an impact on the game. Hes just that kind of player. It shows why we missed him so much last year.Nicastros absence was one of several pitfalls that befell the Great Danes last season, when an underclassmen-laden group lost six of its final seven games and took a step back from a promising 2014 CAA debut.Theres reason to believe an upward move could be coming. Albany returns a conference-high 19 starters and has a schedule that doesnt include three of the leagues expected heavyweights in James Madison, William & Mary and Towson.With a visit to perennially rebuilding Rhode Island (Saturday, 1 p.m. ET) next up and manageable home games against Holy Cross and St. Francis to follow, the Great Danes appear to have a legitimate chance at a 4-0 start entering the defining portion of the slate -- a home date with No. 2 Richmond preceded by trips to Maine and Villanova in October.An opportunistic defense that forced 27 turnovers in 2015 adds to that optimism. The Great Danes had four more takeaways against Buffalo, including safety Mason Grays goal-line strip of Bulls quarterback Tyree Jackson that prevented a potential go-ahead touchdown with 3:52 left.Albany induced six turnovers in last Septembers 35-7 victory over Rhode Island, which has yet to reap the benefits from going young while winning just twice in coach Jim Flemings first two seasons.The Rams were inundated with early mistakes in their season-opening 55-6 loss at Kansas, with a muffed punt by All-CAA return man Harold Cooper and an opening-possession fumble putting URI in a 13-0 hole midway through the first quarter.Quarterback Wesley McKoy also seeks improvement after completing just 6 of 23 passes for 49 yards with an interception.The cleanliness of our operation needs to come a long way, Fleming said. We need to be able to compete in the short passing game. I thought there were some bright spots in the running game, we found some creases. Weve just got to find some more explosion plays.For Gattuso, the goal is maintaining the intensity, focus and execution the Great Danes displayed against Buffalo.If we dont play this way every week, we dont give ourselves a chance to win every week, we probably havent learned a lot from (this win), he said. Itll look nice in a timeline and things like that. Getting a win over an FBS school is outstanding and were very proud of that, but ultimately we need to continue to build on that start.HOUSTON, THE DUKES HAVE LIFT-OFFAny concerns of James Madisons prolific offense experiencing a decline in production under a new coaching regime were quickly dispelled on opening weekend. The 12th-ranked Dukes scored touchdowns on each of their first seven drives and generated points on the first 11 en route to their most lopsided win ever, an 80-7 thrashing of Morehead State in Mike Houstons debut. The scoring total was the highest ever by a CAA school against a Division I foe and surpassed the programs previous high of 76 points, set against Morgan State in 1995. The result also eclipsed a 72-0 rout of Lock Haven in 2000 as the Dukes largest margin of victory.Houston, who replaced current Texas State boss Everett Withers in January after guiding The Citadel to a share of the 2015 Southern Conference title, was as surprised as any by the outcome.First game, new coaching staff together, and you just never know truly what to expect, he said. But I thought that our kids were extremely focused and came out ready to play and played with a tremendous energy level. The thing that stuck out the most was how hard we played and for the most part, how clean we played all night long. Probably about as good an opening night performance as we could expect.Houston came to Harrisonburg with a reputation of developing relentless rushing attacks, and the Dukes certainly didnt disappoint in that regard. JMU produced a school-record 10 touchdowns on the ground and 498 rushing yards, its most as a Division I member.The offense likely faces a sterner test in Saturdays visit from Central Connecticut State (4 p.m. ET), which limited Lafayette to 22 rushing yards in a 24-10 loss last week.ON TAPA capsule look at Saturdays other games involving CAA teams (all times Eastern):Stony Brook (1-0) at Temple (0-1), 1 p.m.- The Seawolves are just 1-6 all-time against FBSS teams but enter Lincoln Financial Field with confidence from a hard-earned 13-9 win over then-No. Cheap Pacers Jerseys. 19 North Dakota, while the Owls could be lacking some after surrendering 344 rushing yards in a 28-13 home loss to Army and facing a second straight week without their top offensive player, running back Jahad Thomas, due to an injured hand. The game will be a homecoming of sorts for Stony Brook coach Chuck Priore, who served as Penns offensive coordinator from 1992-99 and whose brother, Ray, is the Quakers head coach.Delaware (1-0) at Lafayette (1-0), 6 p.m.- The Blue Hens recorded a 12th consecutive victory in the series after holding Lafayette to 55 rushing yards in a 19-9 win in Newark last season, though the Leopards have already matched their 2015 win total with last weeks defeat of Central Connecticut State. Delaware cruised past Delaware State in its opener behind an outstanding return from Wes Hills. The junior running back, who missed nearly all of 2015 with a broken foot, accounted for 212 of the Blue Hens 395 rushing yards and scored two touchdowns.Elon (0-1) at Charlotte (0-1), 6 p.m.- The Phoenix try to recover from last weeks disappointing 31-6 home loss to Gardner-Webb in which they were outgained 327-59 on the ground. Elon won its lone meeting with Charlotte 20-13 in 2014, though the 49ers were in their second year of existence at the time and have since stepped up to the FBS level.Lehigh (0-1) at #22 Villanova (0-1), 6 p.m.- The Wildcats enter the final home opener of the 32-year Andy Talley era with room to improve on offense and special teams, though the defense impressed in last weeks 28-7 loss at ACC member Pittsburgh. Villanova yielded 261 total yards and got its lone points on Rob Rolles fumble recovery off freshman linebacker Drew Wileys third-quarter sack. Three of the Panthers four touchdowns came on drives starting in VU territory, with the other a 96-yard kickoff return to begin the second half. Lehigh managed only 239 yards in its 23-21 loss to visiting Monmouth and has lost four straight and seven of eight in the series.Norfolk State (1-0) at #2 Richmond (1-0), 6 p.m.- After stating their case as a potential national title contender with last weeks 37-20 notice-serving victory at Virginia, the Spiders attempt to avoid a letdown in their home opener. Norfolk State, fresh off a 20-12 win over Division II Elizabeth City State, figures to have a hard time slowing down quarterback Kyle Lauletta and a UR offense that piled up 524 total yards against the Cavaliers. NSU, led by former Spiders head coach Latrell Scott, is 1-10-1 all-time against current CAA teams.Saint Francis (0-1) at Towson (0-1), 6 p.m.- Morgan Mahalak makes his home debut and should fare better than his first game as a Tiger, when the Oregon transfer completed just 16 of 36 passes and was intercepted once in a 56-20 loss at South Florida that knocked Towson out of the STATS FCS Top 25. Saint Francis, picked third in the Northeast Conference preseason poll, surrendered 353 yards and three touchdowns through the air in last Saturdays 41-31 loss at No. 14 Montana and was held to 197 total yards in last years 35-20 defeat to the Tigers. Towson has won all four meetings with the Red Flash.#13 William & Mary (0-1) at Hampton (0-1), 6 p.m.- The Tribe also should have an easier time after being overmatched against N.C. State in their opener. William & Mary has outscored Hampton 113-28 in winning three matchups between the Tidewater residents over the previous three seasons and outgained the Pirates by a 526-150 margin in last years 40-7 rout. Kendell Anderson rushed for a career-high 195 yards for the Tribe, but the All-CAA running back had just eight on five carries while hindered by a shoulder injury in the 48-14 loss to the Wolfpack.Holy Cross (1-0) at #24 New Hampshire (0-1), 7 p.m.- UNH christens the brand-new Wildcat Stadium with a potentially challenging test. Holy Cross won four of its final five games of 2015 and rolled to a 51-24 victory over Morgan State last week behind three touchdown passes from Peter Pujals, a four-year starter who earned first-team All-Patriot League honors last season. The Wildcats, who lost to Patriot member Colgate in last years FCS playoffs in the final game at Cowell Stadium, attempt to get their offense untracked after mustering 141 yards and going 0 for 14 on third downs in a 31-0 loss at Mountain West power San Diego State.Maine (0-1) at Toledo (1-0), 7 p.m.- After coming close to knocking off an FBS bowl participant from last season in their first game under Joe Harasymiak, the Black Bears take on another in a Toledo team that finished 10-2 a year ago and amassed 556 total yards in last Fridays 31-10 road win at Arkansas State. Maine wont have top wide receiver Micah Wright available for a second straight week due to a suspension, though Jaleel Reed filled in nicely during the narrow 24-21 loss at Connecticut by totaling 169 yards and a touchdown on eight catches.

No rule exists that a driver has to win the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway to win the title. Bobby Hull Jersey .But in the first two years of the elimination-style Chase for the Sprint Cup format, a Chase driver has won the race to hoist the Sprint Cup trophy. And not just that, in both years the driver who finished second was among the four championship-eligible drivers.So when Joey Logano, Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards say they think they have to win Sunday, they have the relatively small history of the elimination-style Chase at least backing up such a statement.We race to win every week -- why should we race differently for a championship, right? said Logano, who was foiled by a bad pit stop in the 2014 championship race. Were racing to win that race, and thats ultimately going to have a championship attached to that.Heres how the four finalists -- in order of NASCAR seeding, based on best finish in the previous round -- stack up heading into the 2016 title bout:1. Joey LoganoTeam Penske No. 22 FordChampionships: NoneWins in the third round: OnePoints: 4,118 (first)Why he will win the title: Logano has won two of the three elimination races in this Chase, which shows his ability to capitalize on the moment. He has all the momentum and the experience of falling short in 2014, and he appears to be having the most fun of anyone in the Chase. Why? Maybe because he has the most Chase wins over the past three years (seven).Why he wont: A Ford has not won in the past nine races on a 1.5-mile or 2-mile aerodynamic-dependent track. Logano was second at Texas, but that might not be good enough Sunday.2. Jimmie JohnsonHendrick Motorsports No. 48 ChevroletChampionships: Six (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013)Wins in the third round: OnePoints: 4,078 (sixth)Why he will win the title: Because hes Jimmie Johnson and hes already won six of these trophies. He also rips the heart out of the people he calls the haters, and its time to disappoint the people who cant accept his greatness.Why he wont: Johnson rarely has had to run spectacular at Homestead to win the title. He has just four top-5s in 15 career starts at the track.3. Carl EdwardsJoe Gibbs Racing No. 19 ToyotaChampionships: NoneWins in the third round:?OnePoints: 4,071 (eighth)Why he will win the title: His two victories at Homestead and 9.2 average finish at that track rank him above any of the other Chase finalists. He won two weeks ago at Texas, a somewhat similar track, with the same tire that teams will use Sunday. And having to lose one to win one? Well, Edwards has lost twice. He has finished second in the standings twice without winning the title -- one of only three drivers to finish second in the standings multiple times and not win a title.Why he wont: This is a what have you done for me lately? world. Edwards finished 11th at Homestead in 2015. His average finish in this Chase is 14.9, the worst among the four drivers.4. Kyle BuschJoe Gibbs Racing No. 18 ToyotaChampionships: One (2015)Wins in the third round: NonePoints: 4,113 (second)Why he will win the title: Busch has the best 2016 Chase average finish (7.3) and most 2016 Chase top-5s (six) among the four finalists. He likes to do things that put him on another level: Only three drivers since 1972 have won their first two titles back-to-back.Why he wont: Busch has the longest winless drought among the four finalists; he hasnt won in his last 15 starts. Not only that, he hasnt been in position to win that often -- he has led more than three laps in just two of the Chase races. Gustav Forsling Jersey . Parker had 26 points and eight assists and San Antonio beat Toronto 112-99 Monday night. "We won that game because of Tony Parkers aggressiveness," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.

Australia women 1 for 174 (Lanning 80*, Bolton 77*) beat South Africa women 8 for 173 (Lee 102, du Preez 36, Harris 3-31) by nine wicketsScorecard and ball-by-ball details Nicole Bolton and Meg Lanning scored unbeaten fifties to put on an unbroken 161-run stand for the second wicket to lead Australia to a nine-wicket win over South Africa in Sydney. The win handed Australia a 3-0 series victory with two matches still to be played.A rain delay meant the match was reduced to 32 overs after South Africa opted to bat. The visitors lost Suné Luus and Dinesha Devnarain early but opener Lizelle Lee and Mignon du Preez joined forces in the ninth over and put on 110 off 104 deliveries to put South Africa in a strong position. Lee dominated the partnership - which ended with du Preezs dismissal for 36 - and eventually went on to score her maiden ODI century. However, she could not prevent a South Africa collapse - they slipped from 143 for 2 in the 26th over to finishing on 173 for 8 as no other batsman reached double-figures. Medium-pacer Grace Harris (3 for 31) took two of those wickets, while three batsmen were run out.Australiass chase began with the early loss of opener Elyse Villani (13) in the first over, but South Africa had no further success. Jonathan Toews Jersey. Lanning - who had put on a record 224 with Ellyse Perry in the second ODI with her ninth century - took charge of yet another partnership, scoring a 75-ball 80, while Bolton scored her first fifty of the series and sixth overall, with an 83-ball 77. Their partnership took Australia past the target with 4.5 overs to spare.This was the last match of the ICC Womens Championship, which Australia had already won last month after beating West Indies. South Africa, who had a shot at automatic qualification for next years World Cup at the beginning of this series, finished sixth and will have another shot at qualification along with India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Ireland, Papua New Guinea, Scotland, Thailand and Zimbabwe in the qualifying tournament early next year in Sri Lanka. England, New Zealand and West Indies sealed the other automatic qualification spots.

STANTON, Del. Cheap Houston Rockets Jerseys . -- Im a Chatterbox has now finished first in three Grade 1 races. But on Saturday, at Delaware Park, she came very close to being disqualified for a second time.She was taken down from first and placed second in the Coaching Club American Oaks at Saratoga last summer, won the Cotillion at Parx Racing in September, and then crossed the finish line first by 2-1/4 lengths in Saturdays Delaware Handicap.At the start of the 1-1/4-mile Del Cap, Im a Chatterbox bobbled and then ducked inward from post 4, causing a chain-reaction collision with the three horses to her inside. Jockey Florent Geroux straightened Im a Chatterbox and went on to win the $750,000 race by 2-1/4 lengths.When she broke in I tried to straighten her right away, Geroux said.Paid Up Subscriber, who broke from post 1 and was involved in the bumping incident, rallied to finish second. Her jockey, Ricardo Santana Jr., lodged an objection against the winner for interference after the start, but it was not allowed.I was bothered a lot, Santana said.Al Stall Jr., the trainer of Paid Up Subscriber, said he was surprised there was not a stewards inquiry into the start. After his riders objection was not allowed, he said he disagreed with the call.Her hindquarters were knocked out from under her as a result of the domino effect, Stall said.Larry Jones, the trainer of Im a Chatterbox, said the incident at the start reminded him of the 2014 Breeders Cup Classic, when Bayern broke inward at the start and bumped horses, won the race, but was not taken down.It was a mile and quarter race, Jones said. They had time to overcome it.John Wayne, the executive director of the Delaware Racing Commission, spoke with the stewards and relayed their reasoning to the media after the race.They said the 4 horse [Im a Chatterbox] came in, had bumps with the 3 [Milaya] and 2 [Moneysoncharlotte], which in turn bumped the No. 1 [Paid Up Subscriber]. After the bump, the No. 4 lost ground as much as anyone else and was four lengths behind the one after the bump, Wayne said. They thought that the bump and the fact that the 4 horse was four lengths behind the 1, it didnt cost the 1 horse a placing. And the 1 horse never lost stride for the rest of the race.Once Geroux straightened Im a Chatterbox, she moved past the horses to her inside and took up a stalking position off front-running Mei Ling. She engaged Mei Ling on the far turn, took the lead nearing the stretch, drew clear, and then held off Paid up Subscriber.When she wanted to move up after the start I let her, Geroux said. I wanted to secure a safe spot. All the way around she was traveling well.Paid Up Subscriber saved ground early while racing in the second flight behind Mei Ling and Im a Chatterbox. She rallied when asked and in mid-stretch momentarily looked like she was getting to Im a Chatterbox. She finished 4-1/4 lengths clear of Penwith in third.Mei Ling finished fourth, a nose behind Penwith. It was then 14-1/2 lengths back to Milaya in fifth, and another four lengths back to the trailer, Moneysoncharlotte.Im a Chatterbox paid $3.20 to win. She was timed in 2:02.64.She ran really good, Jones said. Weve prepped her for this spot all year. This race has always been our goal.Im a Chatterbox, a 4-year-old daughter of Munnings owned by Gray and Carolyn Fletcher of Missouri, is now 7 for 14 with earnings of more than $1.8 million.Jones acknowledged that the next logical spot for Im a Chatterbox would be the Grade 1 Personal Ensign at Saratoga on Aug. 27, but said, Let us just enjoy this one for a little while before we start making any plans.

The British Horseracing Authority believes the recommendations made in a new review will set out a blueprint for how its integrity team should operate in the future. Braden Holtby Jersey . The integrity review was launched last summer with the team - which was led by the BHAs director of integrity, legal and risk, Adam Brickell and included an independent regulatory director in Sir Paul Stephenson as well as a panel of leading experts from the fields of sport, regulation and racing - interviewing more than 100 individuals.Trainers, owners, jockeys - and their representative bodies - the betting public, media, legal representatives and others who have an interest in British racings integrity work were able to put forward their views and while the overall impression was favourable, some criticisms were highlighted. The BHA has identified some recurring themes and specific areas where there are opportunities for improvement, prompting a list of suggestions as to how processes and procedures may be improved.The review makes six main recommendations with the establishment of a stakeholder integrity forum, which will include licensed personnel, to act as an advisory group the first key point.Improvements to the investigation, case management and disciplinary process is the second area pinpointed in the review, with proposal of a formal investigation charter to everyone involved in an investigation, at the outset, which sets out their rights and obligations and what they can expect from the process, as well as a code of conduct.The BHA will develop a fast-track process to deal with minor or admitted offences outside of the full disciplinary process and a review of the level of penalties for minor rule breaches.The formalisation of a new integrity strategy, with the aim to do more to educate and protect the majority of participants who comply or are trying to comply with the rules along with looking at improvements to the way in which the media, racing and betting public and the sports participants are informed on what the BHA are doing to protect the integrity of the sport.The BHA also plans to work with stakeholders to review the structure, composition and processes of the Disciplinary Panel, Licensing Committee and Appeal Board to make sure that the sports participants have full confidence in them.Finally, the BHAs extension of partnerships with other organisations across the betting industry, other racing jurisdictions, other sports and regulators in order to increase access to intelligence is also recommended.A number of other smaller ideas were also proposed, including the establishment of a set of guidelines as to the acceptable time-frame within which a disciplinary panel would be expected to produce a decision and reasons following an inquiry, an annual public integrity survey and adding new senior-level resource within the integrity, legal and risk department. Sky Racing Tickets Fast, secure racing tickets: Exclusive racing offers near you Stephenson said: The BHAs integrity work is critical to the reputation of the sport and public confidence in it.British Racing has a strong track record in investigating and taking action against individuals who seek to corrupt the sport. From my brief time within the racing industry and from the people I have spoken to as part of this review it has become clear to me that British Racing is seen as a leader when it comes to managing sporting integrity.This is evidenced by the fact that other sports and racing jurisdictions constantly contact us for guidance on running integrity services.However, we do not have a divine right to this reputation. Hence this Review was instigated to ensure that British Racing is doing all it can to maintain and improve this reputation.Brickell was pleased to see a largely favourable overview of the BHAs work but believes constructive criticism is a valuable tool.He said: The BHA has an excellent track record of detecting and taking action to remove corruption from British horse racing.We are not complacent, and this review, far from revealing serious weaknesses in our approach, shows that we are open, transparent and committed to continuously improving in order to remain among the worlds leaders in sport integrity. It also shows we are confident enough to admit when we make mistakes and to learn from them.We believe that the resultant recommendations, which include some notable, tangible improvements and additions to our procedures and policies, will set out a blueprint for how the BHA integrity team should work with the sport to continue to set standards for others to follow.I am extremely grateful to all of those who gave up their time to take part in the review. We were, at times, challenged robustly by those individuals and it is only through being challenged in such a way that you can learn and improve.An Independent Challenge Panel was established to oversee the Review and ensure the rigour and fairness of the process and to challenge the direction of the Review and the recommendations that arose. The Panel was chaired byNick Bitel, chief executive of the London Marathon and consultant at Kerman & Co solicitors, chaired the challenge panel.He was pleased the BHA admitted its failings in some previous cases, including those of trainers Jim Boyle and Kate Walton, who were involved in investigations which took long periods of time to be resolveed.He said: The challenge panel considers that the review was thorough and carried out properly in accordance with its remit, and reflects a serious and constructive approach by the BHA to achieving the objectives of the review.While we felt that the initial scope and terms of reference were too narrow, we are pleased that, at our request, the BHA widened the review to include some aspects of its disciplinary structure, and that based on the results, has now agreed to a further, separate review of the structure, composition and processes of the Disciplinary Board and Appeal Panel.The Panel applauds the willingness of the BHA to recognise and apologise for past failings, both generally and in the specific case studies of Jim Boyle and Kate Walton included within the review.Paul Struthers, chief executive of the Professional Jockeys Association, welcomed the reviews recommendations.He said: We are pleased that any concerns that this could be a case of the BHA marking its own homework have proved unfounded.The review acknowledges a number of areas for improvement and the correctly offered apologies to Kate Walton and Jim Boyle further demonstrate the change in tone and approach that has been increasingly seen under Nick Rusts tenure.We welcome the review and recommendations and the review team, led by Adam, should be applauded for their work.It is of course vital these recommendations are fully implemented and that outstanding concerns around disciplinary panel processes are addressed.The PJA fully supports a robust integrity framework but this has to be fair and transparent. This review and recommendations, once implemented, should help to ensure this and repair the confidence that had otherwise been lost.Rupert Arnold, chief executive of the National Trainers Federation (NTF), added: We are pleased that the review acknowledges that there have been failings in the investigatory and disciplinary processes.We would especially point to the recommendation to create an investigation charter and code of conduct for disciplinary cases. Defendants must be treated properly and understand how the process will develop.We also welcome the other recommendations including an emphasis on protection and education and alternative methods of dealing with minor offences as well as exploring the provision of pro bono legal advice for disciplinary hearings.

COLUMBIA, S. Wholesale Maple Leafs Jerseys .C. -- P.J. Dozier scored all six of his points in overtime, including a 10-foot, baseline jumper at the buzzer to give South Carolina a 70-69 win against Monmouth on Tuesday night.Sindarius Thornwell had 23 points, nine rebounds and six assists, Duane Notice scored 15 points and Chris Silva added 10 with 10 rebounds for South Carolina (3-0).Doziers game winner came after Monmouths Jelon Hornbeak converted a 3-point play to give the Hawks a one-point lead with 1:02 remaining.P.J. was not where he was supposed to be, said USC coach Frank Martin. He was kind of in no mans land. I think maybe he was trying to get in position for a rebound.As it turned out Dozier was ready to receive a pass from guard Notice that set up the final shot.Chris Brady led Monmouth (1-1) with 17 points.The Gamecocks opened the game with a 13-0 run and a layup by Thornwell gave them their biggest lead, 40-22, with 15:23 left in regulation but Collin Stewart answered with a 3-pointer, sparking a 16-3 run that pulled the Hawks within four fewer than five minutes later.Diago Quinns putback with 6:52 left gave Monmouth its first lead, 52-50. Thornwell answered with a 3-pointer and, after an offensive foul called on the Hawks Austin Tilghman, a put-back layup and the Gamecocks didnt trail in regulation again.At the end of the season they dont ask how you won, just how many you win, said USC coach Frank Martin. I told our team I dont want to be the Grinch that stole Christmas, but we played offense like a bunch of nine-year olds tonight.Monmouths Micah Seaborn hit two free throws with 19 seconds remaining to send it to overtime.Were physical, but they guarded us across the whole court, said Monmouth coach King Rice. Those guys tonight were hard to deal with, so all credit to them. They made one more shot than we did.Two free throws by Hawks guard Justin Robinson tied the game at 50 with 7:48 remaining.BIG PICTURESouth Carolina: After missing the NCAA Tournament despite winning 24 games last season, the Gamecocks claimed their second straight victory over a team that participated in the postseason following the 2015-16 campaign.

The Hawks return home to host Cornell on December 22 before going back on the road.

Sindarius Thornwell, Duane Notice and P.J. Dozier entered averaging 46.5 of the teams 83-point average. The trio scored 44 of the Gamecocks 70 points Tuesday.Monmouth center Chris Brady, who entered the game averaging 13 points and six rebounds, kept the Hawks in contention with several key rebounds and big baskets in the second half. He finished with 17 and 10 rebounds to lead four Hawks players in double figures. Hornbeak scored 14, Micah Seaborn 11 and Justin Robinson had 11 points.Monmouth coach King Rice a former assistant coach at Vanderbilt and player at North Carolina entered with a great knowledge of the South Carolina program.I feel connected to this program because of (Monmouth assistant coach and former Gamecocks assistant) Rick Callahan and (former South Carolina coach) Eddie Fogler, said Rice. I think they have good kids. King Clancy Jersey . The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side.

Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. Cronulla are battling on the wrong side of history as they head into Saturdays NRL qualifying final against Canberra treading water.After 15 straight wins, Shane Flanagans Sharks were shaping as the fairytale story of the 2016 season, however their form has fallen away sharply since.After just one draw and one win from their last six, they head into the finals well and truly in a slump.According to Fox Sports Stats, no team has ever won just one of their final five matches and gone on to win the grand final.The 1982 Manly, 1966 Balmain and 1949 St George sides went close, making the grand final, but fell short.Retiring Cronulla hooker Michael Ennis insists the special qualities that saw the side register the equal-fifth-longest winning streak in competition history has not left them, but they need to regain that hunger.I think the side when we won the 15 games straight was a hungry footy side that really worked hard for one another and did the simple things really well and controlled the game on the back of that, Ennis said.I thought the last 60 minutes of the Roosters and the second half against Souths, we were that side again. Adidas Auston Matthews Jersey. ut I just think we were treading water a bit waiting for the finals and you dont have to take the foot off the pedal much to get beaten or to have a scrappy game.After being one of the leagues best attacking outfits this year, the Sharks attack has fallen away dramatically in the last four weeks - which has included losses to Melbourne, South Sydney and St George Illawarra and a win over Sydney Roosters.In that period they have scored the third least points (16.8 per game), made the sixth least line breaks (4.8 per game) and missed the fourth most tackles (31.3).Ennis said while it was boring as anything, it all stemmed from their failure to do the fundamentals such as hold onto the ball.We just didnt do things hard enough. We just didnt compete hard enough, we didnt have intent in those areas that were really working for us to get down the other end of the field and let blokes have opportunities, Ennis said.

BALTIMORE -- The New York Yankees are experiencing a terrible hitting slump at the worst possible time. Jamie McGinn Jersey .If they dont break out of it right now, their flickering playoff hopes could be extinguished for good.New York managed only four hits in a 2-0 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night. One night earlier, the Yankees got a pair of singles in an 8-0 defeat.Its only the first week of September, but New York finds itself in a must-win situation entering the series finale.You dont ever want to go through this during the course of the season, manager Joe Girardi said. So (Sundays) game is probably the most important game of the year.New York already went through one seemingly must-win stretch leading up to the Aug. 1 trade deadline. After going into sell mode but continuing to compete, Girardis club again finds itself playing for the season with weeks still to go.Yeah, I think you do feel it more, just because youre running out of time, Girardi said. Thats why I think (Sunday) is extremely important. Weve got to find a way to score some runs.Kevin Gausman outpitched CC Sabathia for the second time in seven days and Adam Jones homered for the Orioles, who have blanked the Yankees three straight times dating to the series finale in New York on Aug. 28.Gausman (7-10) allowed two hits and two walks over six innings to win his fourth straight start. He struck out eight and permitted only one runner past second base.The right-hander threw seven shutout innings in New York last Sunday and is 2-1 with an 0.80 ERA in five starts against the Yankees this season.Just trying to mx in all my pitches and keep them off balance, Gausman said.Zach Britton, the third Baltimore reliever, worked a perfect ninth for his 40th save in 40 opportunities.The victory moved the third-place Orioles within two games of the top spot in the AL East.Sabathia (8-12) gave up two runs, one earned, in six innings. All it got him was another loss against the Orioles, the third in a row since mid-July.I didnt have much, Sabathia acknowledged. Just trying to make pitches when I had to, and I was able to do that for the most part. But it was a struggle today.The Yankees came to town with a season-high four straight series wins, but they will leave with their ninth consecutive series loss in Baltimore.Its tough, especially when CC goes out there and pitches his butt off, right fielder Aaron Judge said. If we win tomorrow, we forget about today.Gausman struck out six of the first eight batters and experienced only one difficult inning, the fourth. New York loaded the bases with one out before Starlin Castro struck out and Brian McCann hit a fly ball to left.A double and an error by Judge provided Baltimore with an unearned run in the bottom half, and Jones hit his 25th home run in the fifth.The suddenly punchless New York offense had no answer. The Yankees totaled 27 runs against Baltimore over two games last weekend before Gausman stepped to the mound.FAREWELL TO TEXMaryland native Mark Teixeira will play his final game at Camden Yards on Sunday.Teixeira was cheered as a visiting player in Baltimore until he signed as a free agent with New York in 2009. From that point, the hometown kid heard only boos.When you play a long time, it really doesnt bother you at all, Teixeira said.Besides, its not like he spurned the Orioles in 2009. They didnt have any intention of signing me. They made an offer just to say they made an offer, he said.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: RHP Chad Green (2-4, 4.73) has a sprained elbow and is likely done for the season. Green will see a doctor in New York on Monday.Orioles: RHP Chris Tillman (right shoulder) will have a bullpen session Sunday after throwing three times from flat ground during the week. Tillman (15-5, 3.76) last pitched on Aug. 20.UP NEXTYankees: RHP Michael Pineda (6-11, 5.12) starts the series finale Sunday. Hes winless in his last four starts.Orioles: LHP Wade Miley (8-11, 5.43) returns to the mound coming off his longest start (seven innings, three earned runs) since joining Baltimore at the trade deadline.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- This season has not gone the way the Kansas City Royals and the Minnesota Twins wanted or expected.The 2015 World Series champion Royals are on the cusp of being mathematically eliminated from the American League wild card. Their tragic number is one with six games left. Kansas City still needs three victories to assure a winning season.The young Twins were a surprise in 2015, finishing above .500 and in second place in the AL Central. Instead of taking a step forward, the Twins lost their 100th game on Sunday, falling 4-3 to the Seattle Mariners. It is just the Twins second 100-loss season since moving to Minnesota in 1961. The other was 1983.The Twins and Royals, who were both off Monday, open a three-game series Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium. The Royals outslugged the Detroit Tigers on Sunday 12-9, with Raul Mondesi, Cheslor Cuthbert, Salvador Perez and Alex Gordon going deep for Kansas City.That game really felt like it was a catfight, kicking and scratching, biting, clawing, eye-gouging, Royals manager Ned Yost said.Wade Davis picked up his 26th save in the victory. While the Royals bullpen is not as strong as in the past two seasons, when it won back-to-back AL championships, it still remains one of the best in the majors. Other clubs are attempting to emulate the Royals by building stalwart bullpens.Teams are seeing the value of it, Yost said. I think that we proved last year that with a real strong, lock-down bullpen you can go a long way and win a world championship. It takes a lot of pressure off your starting pitchers; starting pitching is where you spend most of your money. I think we showed there are alternative ways you can be successful.Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer, who reached 100 RBI for the first time on Saturday, received a rare day off on Sunday, but almost certainly will be in the lineup Tuesday.Hes had one day off all year long, Yost said. Like somme guys, hes a little beat up. Authentic Royce Freeman Jersey. Its a perfect day for it. He got his 100th RBI (Saturday). Its a good day to just take a break.The Twins wrap up their dismal season with six road games, three each at Kansas City and Chicago. They drew 1.963,912 fans to Target Field, where they lost 50 of 81 games.Despite the year, we felt supported by our fans, drawing close to two million fans in a year in which things did not go particularly well, Twins manager Paul Molitor said. I just wanted to acknowledge that on behalf of the team. We appreciate the people coming out.The Royals have had their way with the Twins this year, winning 13 of 16.Royals right-hander Ian Kennedy will start the series opener. Kennedy, who has a 3.52 ERA in four September starts, is 3-0 with a 2.31 ERA against Minnesota this year. He is 4-1 with a 3.35 ERA in six career starts versus the Twins.Kennedy lost his previous start, 4-3 Wednesday at Cleveland, allowing three runs and a season-high 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings for his first road defeat since July 1. Kennedys 2.36 ERA since July 30 leads the American League, giving up 18 earned runs in 68 2/3 innings. He is 5-1 since that date after an 0-3 record and 4.96 ERA in July.The Twins will counter with Jose Berrios, who has endured a rough rookie indoctrination -- 2-7 with an 8.88 ERA and only one quality start in his first dozen starts. Berrios threw three scoreless innings Wednesday against Detroit before rain washed it out. Prior to that, Berrios gave up two runs on four hits and three walks in four innings in a 3-0 loss at the New York Mets.This will be his third start this year against the Royals. Berrios is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in the first two, yielding nine runs in nine innings. He has walked 31 and struck out 46 in 48 2/3 innings this year.

LONDON -- Christian Eriksen scored twice as Tottenham secured a much-needed 3-0 victory over Hull in the English Premier League on Wednesday. Cheap Chiefs Jerseys China .The in-form Danish midfielders double took his tally to five goals in his last four Premier League games and helped revive the fortunes of a Spurs side that had won just three of its last 13 games in all competitions going into this fixture.Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino chose to employ the 3-5-2 formation that has brought so much success to league leader Chelsea this season and was rewarded as his wing backs proved crucial in unlocking the dogged Hull defence.I think it (the formation) worked well -- the first two goals arrived from very good action from our full backs, Pochettino said.Three points keeps us in a very good position in the table -- very close to the top four.The victory ensured the north London side remains fifth in the Premier League, three points behind fourth-place Manchester City in the race for a Champions League slot next season.Hull, which has now won just one of its last 12 league fixtures, remains 19th, just one point above last-place Sunderland.Im staying as positive and making sure the players stay as positive as they possibly can, Hull manager Mike Phelan said.The quality came through for Tottenham at the end and before you know it youre 3-0 down and wondering why.With Spurs having hardly threatened in the opening stages, Danny Rose was released by Jan Vertonghen down the left flank in the 14th minute and cut inside before finding Eriksen, who emphatically struck the ball into the roof of the net.Hull limited Tottenham to few clear openings for the remainder of the first half but was rarely able to mount a threat itself.Jake Livermore came closest for the visiting side as he forced a fine save from Hugo Lloris following a swift counter attack on the hour mark, but Hull would immediately be punished for wasting its opportunity.Just as frustration levels were rising for the home side, a near identical copy of the opening goal came in the 63rd.Eric Dier chipped the ball forward for Kyle Walker on the right, who surged into the box and squared for Eriksen to tap home from just a yard (meter) out.Ten minutes later, Eriksen came within inches of a hat trick as his free kick was tipped onto the post by Hull goalkeeper David Marshall, but Victor Wanyama was on hand to convert the rebound. Authentic Armani Watts Jersey . Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured.
