They were booed for every touch, but Australias female basketballers held their nerve to beat Brazil 84-66 in their opening game of the Rio Olympics.The Opals quelled the hostile crowd and overcame an early deficit that had them on the path to a shock defeat at Youth Arena on Saturday night.They were down 12 points early in the second quarter but came out a different side after the halftime break for their sixth consecutive victory over Brazil at an Olympics.Not since 1988 have they lost the first match of an Olympic campaign - the last time they did not win a medal at a Games.Star centre Liz Cambage led the way with 20 points and 14 rebounds, while effervescent guard Leilani Mitchell had 18 points and six assists. Captain Penny Taylor finished with 17 points.Cambage said the booing only served to pump her up.Screams from the haters, got a nice ring to it, she told AAP, quoting lyrics by rapper Kanye West.It was always going to be a loud game. The Brazilians are very known for their energy and such passionate culture.This game has been a big focus all year - the home nation, the first game of the Olympics, and Im so happy its out of the way.It was a real grind but we got there in the end.The five-time Olympic medallists, chasing their first Games gold in Brazil, struggled to find the basket in the opening quarter.They trailed 24-14 at the first change, with 10 of those points coming from Cambage.The seventh-ranked Brazilians were shooting at above 80 percent from the field, compared to the Opals 37 percent accuracy.They were just feeling it. This is their home court, they wanted to put on a show and they did, Cambage added.But we kept our cool, and just went back to our game.Mitchell lent a hand with a scoring spree in the second term to trim the deficit to four points, and then helped turn it into a 57-53 lead at the final break.They outscored Brazil 27-13 in the fourth quarter to seal the win.The Opals have just 24 hours before their second match against Turkey on Sunday night (0630 Monday morning AEST).They beat them two years ago to win bronze at the world championships.So we know them pretty well, added Cambage.In London we lost an early game to France and that was a big lesson for me.We dont want to lose any of these pool games. Were not taking anyone too easy. We scout, we learn everything about every team. Weve got to know them inside out to win.

Bjorn, who had a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, made a testing six-foot putt to save par on the 16th and a birdie on the 17th before bogeying the final hole after a misjudged approach shot. American Kevin Streelman was in second place after shooting a 69.St Helens withstood a late fightback from Warrington Wolves to secure a 25-22 win over the Super League leaders at the Halliwell Jones Stadium. Saints looked to have the game won when they led 25-14 with eight minutes to go, but two Wolves tries in five minutes left the visitors hanging on desperately for a hard-fought but ultimately deserved victory.Warrington remain top, but they could be replaced by Wigan Warriors on Sunday depending on their result against Wakefield Wildcats. Frenchman Theo Fages led the way for Saints, as Kieron Cunninghams side secured their sixth successive win at Warrington. Kevin Penny scores a superb try to give Warrington the lead against St Helens in Super League The Wolves actually outscored their visitors by four tries to three, but they managed just one conversion and spurned the last kick of the match in a bid to save time as they went in search of a match-winning score.It was a victory against the odds, with the visitors missing eight front-line players through injury, and 20-year-old second rower Jack Ashworth was among their try-scorers on only his second Super League appearance.Cunningham also gave a debut to 19-year-old winger Jake Spedding in the absence of an entire threequarter line, while Warrington had the luxury of being able to slot England utility back Stefan Ratchford in at scrum-half in place of an injured Chris Sandow. St Helens claimed victory at Warrington for thr sixth game in a row Warrington had blown Wigan away in the first half of their previous game and they looked set to stage a repeat performance after storming into a 10-0 lead inside 11 minutes.Ratchfords inch-perfect high kick to the corner was plucked out of the air by winger Kevin Penny for the first try and prop Ashton Sims short pass got centre Ryan Atkins crashing through the Saints defensive line for the second.Veteran England forward Ben Westwood, a surprise choice as kicker, added one conversion to make it 10-0 but Saints emerged from their early lethargy in impressive fashion to dominnate large periods of the remainder of the first half.dddddddddddd Ben Currie (left) scored a try for Warrington but ended up on the losing side Stand-off Fages, a close-season signing from Salford who has had to wait for his chance to impress at his new club, did so in front of the Sky Sports cameras.Replacement prop Kyle Amor proved unstoppable from 10m out after supporting a jinking run from full-back Shannon McDonnell and Fages short pass got Ashworth charging over for Saints second try.Luke Walsh converted both to edge his side into a 12-10 lead and they had chances to increase it before a break from deep inside his own half by Penny set up the position for Ben Currie - a second rower playing at centre in the absence of Rhys Evans - to force his way over for a solo try in the final act of the first half.Saints stayed positive, though, continuing to look the more lively side after the break and it was no surprise when they regained the lead, another accurate pass from Fages this time getting centre Matty Dawson over for their third try. All the reaction to St Helens 25-22 win over the Warrington Wolves in Super League The Wolves were forced into some desperate defence to keep the visitors at bay as the game developed into a war of attrition.St Helens captain Jon Wilkin was forced off on 64 minutes after taking a knock to the head, an incident that prompted referee Ben Thaler to place Atkins on report, and Walsh kicked the resulting penalty to edge his side further ahead.The visitors looked to have secured the points when substitute Morgan Knowles pounced for a third try after Walshs grubber kick had eluded full-back Matty Russell, with Walsh adding the goal and slotting over a drop goal eight minutes from the end.That extra point was to prove crucial as Currie sent Penny over for his second try a minute later.Had Kurt Gidley added the goal, the Wolves would have been within a score, but he was just wide and Tom Linehams try two minutes from the end proved too little, too late as Saints deservedly hung on for the win.
