    SAINT JOHN, N. [b]Wholesale NCAA Football Jerseys[/b] .B. -- The skips voice rasped and there was fatigue in her face. Rachel Homan and her Ottawa Curling Club team were ready to put their feet up for an evening and a morning at the Ford World Womens Curling Championship after three straight wins, one of them a white-knuckler. "Oh my god, so ready. I cant wait to not curl for 24 hours," Homan said Wednesday. "I feel like its midnight, so it will be nice to get a break." The Canadians arrived at a break in the schedule tied atop the standings with Switzerlands Binia Feltscher at 8-1. The Canadians reverted to their custom of both taking the lead and finishing a game early in a 10-3 win over South Koreas Ji-sun Kim, who shook hands after eight ends. But Canada went the distance in the morning draw. They stole three points over the final two ends to rescue a 7-5 win over Germanys Imogen Oona Lehmann. That was the first time Homan threw her final stone at the world championship and just the second time Canada played a 10th end in Saint John. Theyd beaten Scotland the previous evening and were back on the Harbour Station ice in the morning. "It was a long haul, three games in a row on not much sleep and a big grind this morning against Germany," Homan said. Homan, third Emma Miskew, second Alison Kreviazuk and lead Lisa Weagle headed to dinner with family members feeling confident about their position. Canada concludes the round robin Thursday against China and Sweden. "Two great teams," Miskew said. Swedens Margaretha Sigfridsson and Russias Anna Sidorova were both 7-2 followed by Chinas Liu Sijia and South Korea tied at 6-3 and Allison Pottinger of the U.S. at 5-4. Scotlands Kerry Barr and Anna Kubeskova of the Czech Republic were 2-7 with Germany, Latvias Evita Regza and Denmarks Madeleine Dupont at 1-8. The top four teams in the preliminary round advance to the Page playoff. Ties for fourth will be solved by tie-breaker games. The countries with the two best records meet in one playoff game Friday with the winner advancing directly to Sundays gold-medal game. The loser drops to Saturday afternoons semifinal to meet the winner of a morning playoff between the third and fourth seeds. "We have our fate in our own hands," Homan said. "Weve got to win out and see what happens with everybody else." The Canadians, all 28 years old or younger, couldnt hide their pleasure at the prospect of sleeping in Thursday morning. They intended to stop in at the tournament party room before bed Wednesday "because theres a band there Signal Hill that we like," Miskew said. "Theyve come to Ottawa and we usually go and watch them in Ottawa." Canada scored three points in the fourth and stole three in the eighth versus South Korea. Pyeongchang, South Korea, is the host city of the 2018 Winter Olympics. Kim is among the countrys female curlers getting fast-tracked to compete. The 26-year-old skipped South Korea to fourth at the 2012 world championship in Lethbridge, Alta. She beat Canadas Heather Nedohin in a playoff game, but lost the semifinal and lost the bronze-medal rematch to Nedohin. Kim threw third stones against Homan with Un-chi Gim, her lead in Lethbridge, throwing fourth stones. With the score tied 2-2, the South Koreans played conservatively in the fourth end by putting up guards early on a counter on the button. But Miskews well-executed draw around a guard forced them to chase. South Koreas poorly-placed draws opened the door for Canada to plant more counters around the button. Homan had an easy tap for three points and a 5-2 lead in front of 1,726 at Harbour Station. "Not good," Kim said. "We were a little nervous." Canada recovered from errors against Germany to grind out a win. The Germans led 5-4 heading into the ninth, when Homan and Lehmann shifted momentum back and forth with misses. Lehmann overthrew an attempted double takeout with hammer to leave Canada shot rock for a steal of one. Miskew put guards in front of a Kreviazuk draw to the button in 10th and German third Corinna Scholz missed an attempted hit and roll behind cover. Homan struggled with draws in the earlier ends, but she had it solved by the 10th as she drew in to stack two Canadian counters on the button. Lehmann cleared just one and Homan buried a draw behind a guard to lie two again. The German skips attempt to follow her didnt curl enough. "Youve got to be confident and believe you can steal because theres no other way, theres no other option," Homan said. "It was just tough out there. We werent quite reading things right. There were a lot of uncharacteristic misses. We just tried to figure out our rocks and our lines. We just had to keep playing a little bit better each end and hope for a few lucky breaks and we made it out in the end."

[b]Cheap College Jerseys Free Shipping[/b] . So true. It is one thing to create a winning football team, and another to keep it winning. Each and every week it changes. The NFL creates a unique interest of not who is "the best", but much more who is "the best this week".BUFFALO, N.Y. - Tyler Bozak had some good and some bad, but most importantly he was on the ice in a game for the Toronto Maple Leafs.Bozak had a goal, two assists and a costly turnover in his pre-season debut as the Leafs beat the Buffalo Sabres 6-4 Friday night at First Niagara Center. The first-line centre played 18:23 and showed no ill effects from a lower-body injury that forced him to miss the start of training camp.It was both ways, I guess: Good at times and bad at times, Bozak said of his game. I obviously hadnt played a scrimmage or a game since last year, so it was nice to get out there. Things went well right off the bat, which helped my confidence. Obviously a couple mistakes and a four-minute shift, so kind of got everything out there today.While Bozak and right-winger David Clarkson got on the ice in exhibition action for the first time, defenceman Henrik Tallinder left the game with a dislocated left shoulder. Coach Randy Carlyle didnt know how long Tallinder a€” whos in training camp on a professional tryout a€” might be out.A lot of people that play this game have history that if it pops out they pop it back in and it settles down, Carlyle said.Bozak and Clarkson were injured as part of informal pre-training camp workouts. The two forwards began practising with the Leafs earlier this week before finally getting into a game in Buffalo.Bozak set up goals by Roman Polak and captain Dion Phaneuf and scored his own on a pretty give-and-go with winger Josh Leivo. The top line of Leivo, Bozak and Joffrey Lupul got caught in their own end for a shift of almost three minutes.Got tired after that long shift, Bozak said. You can do whatever you can, but once you get in a game its completely different. Getting back into game shape will be something that I got to do the next couple games, but overall felt pretty good.Clarkson scored on a tip in front, and Leo Komarov and Leivo each had a goal for the Leafs on a night Sabres goaltender Michal Neuvirth struggled. Clarksons right eye was swollen shut after the game following a third-period fight with Cody McCormick.Carlyle said Clarkson did not return after that fight for precautionary reasons and did not sound concerned about his long-term health.Phaneuf fought Drew Stafford in the first period. He had an ice pack on his right hand after, however the defenceman saiid his hand was fine. [b]Cheap NCAA Basketball Jerseys[/b]. .In his first full game of the pre-season, goaltender James Reimer allowed two goals to Chris Stewart and one each to Jake McCabe and McCormick. Reimer finished with 32 saves.As Toronto looks for depth on the blue-line, Tallinders chances of making the team were dealt a serious blow when he went shoulder-first into the boards on a hit from former Sabres teammate Mike Weber, who also landed on top of him. He did not return.If the 35-year-old Tallinder misses any significant time and cant earn a roster spot, Toronto would likely look to someone like Stuart Percy or Korbinian Holzer to be the seventh defenceman. The uncertain status of right-handed Stephane Robidas (broken leg in last years playoffs) could also throw off the Leafs plans.Percy was particularly good Friday night, and the 2011 first-round pick could be in line to earn a job. Carlyle said the 21-year-old looks like a different, stronger player than a year ago.You can tell hes put some time and effort in in changing his body makeup and strength factor, Carlyle said. I still think that, the speed of the game and his foot speed is going to be something hes going to have to continue to improve on, but you cant take away his puck moving ability and his hockey sense.Polak, a stay-at-home defenceman the Leafs got from the St. Louis Blues, finished with a goal and two assists.Its second game in Toronto, I just want to show myself, what I can do, too and just kind of represent my name, Polak said.Leivo also had a three-point night and earned praise from Carlyle for being strong around the puck and on the walls and for having a knack for scoring.He did a lot of good things, Carlyle said. Those are instances when he shows his skill and shows his strength along the wall with the puck. If he can continue to do that hes going to make our decisions that much more difficult.Notes a€” The Leafs put forwards Trevor Smith and Spencer Abbott and defenceman Kevin Marshall on waivers on Friday with the intention of sending them to camp with the AHLs Toronto Marlies. ... Frederik Gauthier hasnt played this pre-season because of a cracked rib, according to Carlyle. Gauthier was the Leafs first-round pick in 2013. ... With the win, the Leafs improved to 3-1-1 in exhibition action. They host the Sabres at Air Canada Centre on Sunday.
