    Conner?returned to the football field and scored two first-half touchdowns in
    Saturdays 28-7 home win over Villanova.Conner led the Panthers out of the tunnel
    and onto the field before the game, receiving a raucous ovation. More applause
    followed after he carried the ball on Pitts first offensive play, a rush that
    lost 1 yard.Conner finished with 17 carries for 53 yards and added 3 catches for
    16 yards.Its not my first game, Conner said. I know its a comeback game, but its
    felt like a regular-season football camp, really. My battle was already won.
    Beating cancer, everything else was a reward.Conner scored on a 3-yard touchdown
    run with 7:08 left in the second quarter to give Pitt a 7-0 lead. He stiff-armed
    a Villanova defender the whole way and was mobbed by teammates upon reaching the
    end zone.He also recorded his first career receiving touchdown on a 9-yard catch
    that gave the Panthers a 14-0 lead just before halftime.That first touchdown
    couldnt be any better, stiff-arm into the end zone right into the student
    section, quarterback Nate Peterman said. It was an emotional moment.Arizona
    Cardinals star Larry Fitzgerald, a Pitt alum, applauded Conners efforts in a
    tweet during Saturdays game.The 2014 ACC Player of the Year, Conner announced in
    December that he had been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. The redshirt junior
    vowed all along to beat the disease and be ready for the Panthers season opener,
    and he did just that after going through 12 chemotherapy sessions.Conner earned
    multiple All-America honors as a sophomore in 2014, rushing for 1,765 yards and
    26 touchdowns. His 2015 season ended in Week 1, when the 6-foot-2, 235-pounder
    tore the MCL in his right knee.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    . Deulofeu injured a muscle in his right leg in
    Evertons 4-1 win over Fulham in the English Premier League on Saturday.
    Barcelona says that its team doctors will "co-ordinate" with Evertons medical
    staff as Deulofeu recovers.Scott Arfield struck after just 58 seconds to ensure
    Burnley will remain on top of the Sky Bet Championship this weekend after
    beating Leeds 1-0 at Turf Moor. The recently-capped Canada internationals early
    goal took the Clarets on to 80 points, four ahead of Middlesbrough and five
    clear of Brighton, stretching their unbeaten run in the division to 18 games.It
    was Livingston-born Arfields eighth of the season and it came in front of
    watching Scotland boss Gordon Strachan, whose reluctance to bring him into his
    international fold led to the winger seeking recognition with Canada. For
    Burnley, it was another result they had to grind out as they edge closer to a
    top-flight return, and Leeds should have come away with a point as Chris Wood
    spurned two glorious second-half opportunities.The divisions top scorers had
    endured a frustrating 90 minutes here in midweek when Cardiff kept them at bay
    during a third successive draw, but, less than one minute in, Arfield beat the
    recalled Marco Silvestri in the visitors net. Mustapha Carayol tangles with
    George Boyd at Turf Moor The move started at the opposite end with Tom Heatons
    long kick found Sam Vokes who beat Sol Bamba in the air to find Andre Gray, who
    turned away from Liam Cooper and fed Arfield to fire a shot home across
    Silvestri.Bamba endured an eventful start to the game, drawing Heaton into a
    save before getting caught out of position again defensively as Matt Lowton
    struck an attempt at Silvestri when released by Gray.Leeds settled down after
    that frantic start, although they were fortunate that George Boyd rifled wide in
    an attack that was reminiscent of the opener, with Bamba again caught out as he
    rushed to clear. Leeds United manager Steve Evans gives his post-match thoughts
    after his sides defeat to Burnley Whites forward Wood lashed one effort over the
    crossbar from way out and should have done better when Stuart Dallas cross went
    over Michael Keane and reached the New Zealander.ddddddddddddIt was then an
    unmarked Bamba that was involved in the halfs final chance as he failed to
    properly connect with a corner sent in by Mustapha Carayol, with the defender
    punching the air in disappointment as the hosts cleared. Scott Arfield of
    Burnley celebrates the opening goal against Leeds with his team-mates Steve
    Evans side were growing into the contest, though, and after Wood smashed another
    shot over, he was presented with a second-half chance which really should have
    ended in the equaliser.Lurking behind Ben Mee, the striker reached Carayols
    cross only to divert it inches past the post with his shoulder.The Clarets
    needed to rally and they did with a move down the left. Arfield left the ball to
    the leagues leading marksman Gray and he fired into two Leeds defenders. Burnley
    manager Sean Dyche gives his thoughts after his sides 1-0 win over Leeds. Gray
    may have been having an off-day but Woods afternoon turned even worse when he
    somehow headed wide from six yards out 69 minutes in having been totally
    unmarked from Charlie Taylors centre.The visitors would not have another decent
    opening in the last 20 minutes - certainly not one as clear-cut as the chance
    Burnley substitute Ashley Barnes sent wide from close range in stoppage time -
    as the Clarets kept their spot at the summit ahead of their final five fixtures.
