Hector Herrera hit the crossbar in the 47th minute, and his team didn't have to wait much longer to take the lead.

The development also raised questions on the long-term prospects for the WCHA getting back to eight teams. The women's hockey team's season ended in March at the Western Collegiate Hockey Association tournament.

The Musketeers earned this one and now they're headed to the Elite Eight for the first time in a decade.

Dorsey's recent surge has been timely, for sure.

The question was still Dempsey's health. His 53, 54 and 55 worldwide strikes also pulled him within two goals of Landon Donovan's MNT scoring record, something he says he's contemplated breaking. But the doctors did a great job. "That's bigger than me trying to break the record". At just 18 Pulisic leads the next generation of USMNT talent, but now he needs to perform even earlier than expected.
It presented the other perennially eager-for-more attitude of the 18-time Grand Slam as he was unaffected by time and all that it brought along in his career. There are still two huge games this year and supporters can't wait to see how he does. Those questions have been replaced by the aforementioned, but for Federer to reach the No.1 ranking he'd have to continue his magical tennis unabated.
But finishing in the top three and avoiding finishing fourth and enduring a playoff against the fifth-placed Asian nation looks eminently realistic on the evidence of the past two games , provided home form holds up. "You really have to have a passion about doing this". It is all about finding that balance. It's important. There were times where I didn't have it today, but the way I play, the style I play, it's pretty normal for me to get kicked around a few times .
The win also lifted Leishman's world ranking and secured his invitation to Augusta. Hoffman doesn't have one, and he wouldn't plan to wear it even if he wins.

Kentucky avenged an earlier-season loss to UCLA in the regional semifinals before falling to the top-seeded Tar Heels in one of the more memorable games in the NCAA Tournament this season.

Uncapped Mumbai batsman Shreyas Iyer flew in on Friday as cover for Kohli who has been rather subdued in the series, managing 46 runs in five innings.

American Woodland, now 37 in the world rankings and runner-up in 2015, pulled out of the event in Texas due to a "personal family matter".

Munir El Haddadi tied things up a minute later, but Messi struck again in the second half. Barca needed a win after handing the initiative to their rivals in last week's surprise defeat at Deportivo La Coruna . Neymar's throw in set Suarez through, although the angle was still tight. And less than a minute later the Argentina superstar received an Iniesta pass and found space at the near post to beat the Valencia goalkeeper and restore Barcelona's lead.
The game was Ronaldo's first with the national team in his hometown of Funchal on the Madeira Islands, delighting the almost 10,000 fans - including his mother and son - who packed the tiny Estadio do Maritimo.

Which is a amusing one because when I go to my mum's she has got every meat you can imagine out on the table. "I think with the players we have got it really suits us". How did England's XI look in Jermain Defoe's last cap? He has unquestionably been Sunderland's hope of Premier league survival, and still is. "There are a lot of things I do away from training and playing that help me to perform on match day".
