e Chiefs were called for three straight from miao1234's blog

EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Adidas Womens Yeezy Boost 350 Pink Shoes .J. -- Facing a penalty kick with 15 minutes left in regulation and the game tied, Honduras Noel Valladares was willing to do anything to distract Alvaro Saborio of Costa Rica -- so the goalkeeper argued about the placement of the ball. He argued so much, referee Roberto Moreno of Panama gave him a yellow card. The delay worked. Valladares made a diving stop on Saborios penalty kick in the 75th minute and Honduras advanced to the Gold Cup semifinals by making all four of its tiebreaker penalty kicks in a quarter-final victory Saturday night. "Ive felt the emotions of scoring a goal for my country, but you cant compare it to stopping a PK," Valladares said after Honduras advanced to the Gold Cup semifinals for the second straight time and fourth overall. "Ive lived (stopping PKs) more, and Ive felt it more." In Houston on Wednesday, Honduras will face defending champion Mexico, which rallied to defeat Guatemala 2-1. The Catrachos won because of their ability to convert from the penalty spot. Carlo Costly, Victor Bernardez, Wilson Palacios and Jerry Bengston all connected on the penalty kicks after 120 minutes of play at the New Meadowlands Stadium left the Central American rivals tied at 1. Costa Rica, which has never beaten Honduras in the Gold Cup, saw penalty kicks by Celso Borges and Saborio hit off the crossbar in being outscored 4-2 in the game-deciding penalty kicks. Costa Rican coach Ricardo La Volpe said his team never works on penalty kick in practice. "I just dont believe in it," he said. "I was a player, Ive been a coach for a long time. And I know I dont have to teach anybody how to kick a PK. They already know how. You just have to have the mentality and discipline to put the ball in the net. Look, if we qualified (for the semifinal), we wouldnt be talking about this." La Volpe was more upset with Honduras play, which he called "dirty." "You guys saw the game," he said. "From every point of view, I saw a lot of dirty plays. It happens the fourth, fifth time, you start to think." Honduran coach Luis Fernando Suarez wouldnt respond to La Volpe accusations. Bengston scored in the 49th minute for Honduras, and Dennis Marshall tied it for Costa Rica on a corner kick in the 56th minute. Valladares, the Honduran captain, made the biggest play of the game after Moreno awarded a penalty kick for a very questionable foul on Bernardez against Marco Urena. After getting a yellow card, Valladares dove to his right to make the save. "The blocked PK helped us tremendously and enabled us to finish off the match," Valladares said. "It was well worth the yellow card. You have to distract the kicker." It not only kept the game tied, but it was one 43rd-ranked Honduras desperately needed it because its players seemed to run out of gas in the second half and the overtime. Outshot 12-4 in the opening half, Costa Rica outshot Honduras 15-9 in the final 75 minutes. However, it failed to convert three times from the penalty spot, including twice in the penalty kick phase. Bengstons third goal of the tournament came when he deposited the rebound of a shot by Javier Portillo into a wide open net. Roger Espinoza started the play with a long pass up that put Portillo behind Costa Rican defender Jose Salvatierra on the left edge of box. Portillo dribbled into the penalty area and unleashed a shot that forced goalkeeper Keylor Navas to make a kick save. The rebound went to a wide open Bengston. No. 56-ranked Costa Rica tied it seven minutes later on a corner kick. Cristian Bolanos floated the kick across the goal and ponytailed defender Dennis Marshall elevated and headed the ball down and bounced it into the net past Valladares, one of five starters in the lineup from Honduras World Cup team. Honduras had a chance to win the game in injury time but Marshall stopped a weak shot by Oscar Boniek Garcia after a crossing pass by late substitute Carlo Costly ended up on his foot with Navas out of position. Each team had one chance in the 30-minute overtime with Navas making the toughest save, parrying a deflected shot by Garcia over the crossbar in the 115th minute. Cheap Air Max 90 Free Shipping . It was the 18-year-old from Toronto who got on the scoreboard in a losing cause as Tottenham defeated Toronto 3-2 in a soccer friendly Wednesday on the strength of an 85th-minute goal by Andros Townsend. Andrew Wiedeman and Hamilton had scored second-half goals to pull the home side even before a sellout crowd of 22,591 on a warm evening at BMO Field. Red Nike Air Max 90 Mens . The day after the Raptors were mocked for the debacle, a Raptors official confirmed that an ESPN technician plugged into the same power source for the shot clocks, frying the power system.EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Mark Sanchez jogged onto the field for the first play of the game and immediately had to call an embarrassing timeout. It was just about the only thing that stopped the New York Jets all afternoon. Sanchez became the first Jets quarterback to throw two touchdown passes and run for two more scores as New York got off to a fast start and improved its positioning in the AFC playoff race by cruising to a 37-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. "I was happy we had another opening-drive touchdown," Sanchez said. "It set the tone early, and we converted on some big third downs and didnt get too many third downs, which was good. We had some explosive plays and the run game really took off." The Jets, plagued by slow starts all season, opened with a timeout -- and boos from the MetLife Stadium crowd -- because they had the wrong personnel on the field, but rebounded to score 28 points in the first half and were helped by an inept Chiefs offence that managed just 4 total yards in the first two quarters. New York (8-5) also leapfrogged Cincinnati, Tennessee and Oakland, all 7-6 after losses Sunday, and took over the last wild-card spot in the AFC. "Its just what weve been talking about for the last 12, 13 weeks," linebacker Calvin Pace said. "It all came to form today, which is what we needed. We kind of hold our own destiny in our hands and it was about getting a good win." Sanchez was 13 of 21 for 181 yards before being pulled for Mark Brunell with the game in hand, and was cheered warmly in pre-game introductions after being booed in the teams last home game two weeks ago. Shonn Greene had a season-high 129 yards rushing and a score along with three catches for 58 yards, and Santonio Holmes and LaDainian Tomlinson each caught touchdown passes for the Jets, who have won three straight and improved to 6-1 at home. "I guess it would be our best game so far this year," coach Rex Ryan said. It might have been a costly win, though, as starting safety Jim Leonhard was lost early with an injured right knee after an interception. He was scheduled to have an MRI exam on his right knee Monday to determine the severity of the injury, Many teammates thought it could be season-ending, but the team would await the results before making an official determination. "Im hopeful its not that bad," coach Rex Ryan said, "but its never good when you need help coming off." Tyler Palko was sacked five times by the Jets in a miserable outing by the penalty-plagued Chiefs (5-8) a week after the quarterback earned his first victory as a starter at Chicago. He was 3 for 8 for 11 yards in the half, sacked three times, and the Chiefs had 4 total yards and one first down, compared to the Jets 16. Palko had a much better second half, finishing 16 of 32 for 195 yards and a touchdown and an interception. "The Jets put a lot of pressure (on you)," Palko said. "Thats just what they do. Theyre a lot like the Steelers. They have guys all over the place." Dwayne Bowe dropped a would-be touchdown pass midway through the fourth quarter, but things got ugly for the Chiefs way before that. In the most brutal stretch for Kansas City, the Chiefs weere penalized five times for 81 yards during the Jets final touchdown drive. White/Fluorescent Yellow Mens/Womens Nike Air Max 90 Glow Training Shoes. One of those was an unsportsmanlike conduct call on coach Todd Haley, who let his frustrations out on the officials. Kansas City finished with 11 penalties. "That generally gets you beat," said Haley, who wouldnt elaborate on what he said to the officials. "The one thing we cant do is lose our composure on calls." Sanchezs 1-yard run gave the Jets a score on their first drive, the second straight game theyve done that, but it began ominously as he had to call the timeout. "That wasnt great," Ryan said. "Thats not going to go on my coaching resume." An 11-play, 77-yard drive followed, jumpstarted by Greenes 31-yard rumble on the opening snap. On third-and-goal from the 3, Sanchez threw incomplete into the end zone, but Chiefs cornerback Javier Arenas was called for holding, giving the Jets a new set of downs at the 1. Sanchez then took the snap, faked the handoff to Greene and it appeared every Chiefs player bit as the Jets quarterback rolled to his left and strolled into the end zone untouched. After Leonhard was injured and carted off the field, Sanchez dumped the ball off quickly to Greene, who zipped down the left sideline 36 yards before going out of bounds at the 2. Sanchez found Holmes in the middle of the end zone two plays later for a 4-yard touchdown and a 14-3 lead. Greenes 7-yard touchdown run put New York ahead 21-3 after a called fumble was overturned by officials. Tomlinson made it 28-3 less than 2 minutes later when he took a screen pass from Sanchez, made a few cutback moves and got a big block from centre Nick Mangold for a 19-yard touchdown. It marked the first time the Jets scored 28 points in an opening half since scoring 40 against St. Louis in 2008. "I love the way we started the game," Ryan said. Added Haley: "It was probably our worst half of football. I dont know if its even close this season." Things really started getting out of hand midway through the third quarter when the Chiefs were called for three straight penalties, including an unsportsmanlike conduct on an irate Haley. A few plays later, Brandon Flowers and Kendrick Lewis were called for consecutive pass interference penalties, bringing the ball to the 4. On third-and-goal, Sanchez took the snap and rolled into the end zone for a 3-yard touchdown -- his career-high fifth TD run of the season -- and a 35-3 lead. One of the few highlights for the Chiefs came when Jerheme Urban caught a 24-yard touchdown pass -- in between four Jets defenders -- to make it 35-10. Sione Pouha tackled Jackie Battle for a safety late in the game after T.J. Conleys punt was downed at the 1. "It felt good," Greene said, "to put a lot of points on the board and dominate." Notes: Chiefs K Ryan Succop badly botched an onside kick attempt that travelled 3 yards early in the fourth quarter. ... Chiefs S Jon McGraw left in the second quarter with an injured left ankle and didnt return. ... New Yorks five sacks were a season high. ... Chiefs RB Thomas Jones had just 12 yards on five carries, but passed Eddie George and Tiki Barber for 22nd on the NFLs career list. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
