    . After a replay, the winner will meet Sunderland in
    the quarterfinals. Sagbo did well to control Sone Alukos right cross and fire
    past Brighton goalkeeper Peter Brezovan. Aluko was making his first start in
    four months after recovering from an Achilles injury.
    Welsh Nuggets Jersey
    . Thousands of Southern California fans enveloped the
    Trojans to celebrate an improbable win secured by an interim coach, an
    inconsistent kicker and a thin defence that wouldnt break.
    .Y. -- Syracuse has turned up the defence at the right time all season, and when
    High Point threatened to pull off a monumental upset the second-ranked Orange
    did what they do best with their quick hands and savvy play.

    . -- New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis is retiring after
    a 16-year career to become the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

    .Y. - Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has
    earned NHL first star of the week honours after winning in his first three
    appearances of the season. The Week 6 NFL matchup that will take place this
    Sunday in Miami is a contest of two teams headed in different directions.The
    Dolphins are coming off an embarrassing 30-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans.
    Miami is 1-4 and not playing very good football on offense or defense.The
    Pittsburgh Steelers sit atop the AFC North at 4-1 and fly into South Florida on
    a two-game winning streak.Both teams have suffered key injuries to starting
    players.The Dolphins entered their Week 5 game against the Titans missing seven
    projected starters.The Steelers played the New York Jets in Week 5 down four
    starters and lost captain and defensive end Cam Heyward in the game because of a
    hamstring injury.The Dolphins backups have not stepped up while the Steelers
    players and head coach Mike Tomlin live by the next-man-up credo.Its the next
    man up, linebacker Jarvis Jones said. Coach Tomlin is really serious about it.
    Guys take pride when theyre the next man up.When you get that helmet you have to
    take full advantage of it. The guys did great this week and we got a great win
    together.Added linebacker Vince Williams, who led the defense in tackles for
    back-to-back weeks while filling in for injured inside linebacker Ryan Shazier:
    The standard is the standard. You know we believe in that. Thats real. Thats it.
    I dont know what else you want me to say. Nobody on this team believes they are
    a backup. Everybody just believes they are waiting for their opportunity to put
    their hand in the pile and help this team win football games.While the Steelers
    have used this motto to continue to win games, the Dolphins, with healthy
    players or not, continue to struggle in all phases.The offensive line without
    injured left tackle Brendan Albert (flu) and left guard Laremy Tunsil (ankle)
    gave up six sacks to the Titans. Starting right tackle JaWuan James allowed a
    sack against Tennessee, meaning he has allowed at least one sack in each of the
    last three games.James might have caught a break with the injury to Heyward. The
    starting left end for the Steelers will not play against the Dolphins. This is
    the first missed game in Heywards career and snaps his streak of 85 straight
    games played.Tomlins motto of next man up falls into thhe lap of backup
    defensive end Ricardo Mathews and a rotation from nose tackle to end by Daniel
    McCullers and Javon Hargrave.ddddddddddddThe Steelers defense runs a 3-4 so the
    linebackers will be asked to blitz more this week against a struggling Dolphins
    offensive line.The Dolphins released former starting right guard Billy Turner
    and 2015 16-game starting guard Dallas Thomas on Monday. Head coach Adam Gase
    knows his team needs to play better especially along the offensive line.Gase
    said: Were inept right now. Weve just got to figure something out. We tried to
    slow it down (Sunday), and huddle, and we only had 41 plays and eat up 23
    minutes. Were not getting enough first downs.We had a chance there on the
    third-and-1, and the ball gets batted down. We think were in the end zone to be
    down by three and we get a holding call. It just seems that we cant get out of
    our own way right now.The Steelers dont share that same feeling on offense. The
    offensive line needs to protect quarterback Ben Roethlisberger better as
    indicated by the nine sacks they have allowed.But Roethlisberger is third in the
    NFL with 1,496 yards passing and has thrown for 15 touchdowns with only four
    interceptions.Where the Steelers will look to make their offensive mark on
    Sunday is running the football. Running back LeVeon Bell has accounted for 432
    offensive yards since returning from his three-game suspension. The former
    Michigan State Spartan is averaging 105 yards rushing per game.The Dolphins run
    defense is the worst in the NFL and allows on average 150.8 yards per game. The
    much maligned defense without starting linebackers Koa Misi and Jelani Jenkins
    allowed 235 yards rushing to the Titans.Running back DeMarco Murray had 27
    carries for 121 yards.We werent finishing our tackles; thatll kill you every
    time, especially with a running back like that, Gase said of Murray.The Dolphins
    have allowed two bruising style runners to gain over 120 yards against them this
    season. New England Patriots and former Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount
    was the first. Bell fits that mold as well. ' ' '
